It's just ok...
It is moisturizing and I had great hopes for this cream to diminish my dark circles and very fine lines. My lines are so faint, I thought for sure this would do something for them. I also have two very faint lines above my lip so this would've been a great solution.
Unfortunately, after using it for two months, I can say there's no improvement and it maybe even made my skin worse. I noticed after some time there was a developing mild irritation. This added a fabulous red tinge to my dark circles. I developed two millia under one eye and those will take forever to go away. My fine lines DID seem to vanish but realized that was only because the mild irritation was plumping up the skin. Once the affect wore off, the lines actually looked worse. It's going back to Nordies.
FUTURE SOLUTION LX Eye and Lip Cream: Ok, I have read tons of reviews and people love this stuff. I realized I really need a good anti wrinkle eye cream :-(. Yes, more deep wrinkles are coming. Just a few but they are there. I was either going to buy this or the la prairie caviar serum, same price, $130. Tried that and didn`t like it. The sales girl at Nordstrom was really helpful and right now Nordstrom has a deal, they sell this eyecream in a set with 3 more tiny products samples from the same line. The mini cream looks adorable, lol... Anyhow, at the store I was like `ok, nice`, but I wasn`t blown away for $130. She said this would actually REPAIR the deeper lines, while the Benefiance is more protective, but doesn`t have such `power` :-)... Ok, got the whole set. The packaging is the most `exotic`, futuristic, luxurious looking thing I have ever bought in skincare. :-))) Really pretty. The cream is VERY THICK, I really, honestly can`t believe how TINY amount you need for both of your eyes and even around the mouth (in smile lines). I have never had a product that would cover all that area with such small amount! This will last a looong time... So I came home, washed my face, left my eye area a tiny bit damp, put this on, and my deeper lines were instantly softer, my skin more smooth, and it was like this instantly smoothened out some of the fine lines. I understand we have to use these long term, but I like to see some instant results! :-))) Even though I was hesitant at the store, I was really happy at home about the purchase... Super thick but still sinks in 100%. Feels and smells, looks like luxury. I will update in a few weeks how it really does with wrinkles and fine lines... :-)
Wow wow wow! This stuff really does deliver! I've only been using it a couple weeks, but it has greatly lessened the appearance of my crows feet. You know those smile lines that stay there even when you're not smiling? They smooth out when I use this cream. Paula Begoun may diss this cream (as she does everything), but the sum synergy is more than just its ingredients. Shiseido has found a way to deeply moisturize skin and keep it deeply moisturized.
The best compliment I can give this eye/lip cream is that I have forgotten to put on my under eye concealer lately and I have not been concerned about the small wrinkles starting to develop around my lips. gone! My lipstick goes on much nicer than before. Great results since I have only been using it a couple of weeks. It is expensive but it replaces a lip and eye treatment. And on most days I may not need my concealer. I use the tiny amount on my eyes and lips measured from the scoop that comes with the jar.
I really did not want to like this stuff. The price tag is not very pleasant... However! I LOVE it. I have been using this for about a month now, around my eyes, on the lids (as it instructs), under the eyes, and around- on crowsfeet. My eye area has definitely softened, and is always sufficiently hydrated thanks to this cream. I have very dry skin, and this is so rich- it goes on thick, almost like a baby's butt paste- it even goes on leaving a whitish cast before it completely sinks in... But oh, it feels so wonderful, and smells so lovely- the whole process is nice. I don't typically look forward to night time skin regime, but this stuff makes it enjoyable, even pleasurable! I'm also using a bit of this on my upper lip area as it says it is an eye and lip cream... I figure prevention wont hurt! It does come in a jar, but it also comes with a sealed "spoon-like" scoop so you don't need to stick your fingers directly into the cream itself. If you can get yourself a sample, try it out... but I'm warning you- You may end up justifying the cost to go back and get the full-size! It's the best eye cream I've tried, and for my dry and (ageing? 34 years old :/) skin, I need all the help I can get. UPDATE- Ive compared this one to the Benefiance Concentrated eye cream, and I really think that one is much better. It's cheaper, too. It's just so much more smooth and sinks in a lot better...
a while ago I noticed that I was starting to develop wrinkles around my under eyes and mentioned it to my mom. She's an avid Shiseido user and recommended this. I was on the fence about this since it's so bloody expensive but I told myself that there was nothing to lose and took my chances. It's a staple in skin care routine. It brightened and soften the look of my wrinkles in the first 2 weeks. It work so well and quickly!! I've been using this for 3 months now and my under eye area looks flawless!! I will never stop using this.
I've been using this eye cream for over 3 years and I am thoroughly pleased with the results. I'm currently in my 30's and people still think I'm in my early to mid 20's because I have so few wrinkles around my eye. This is the best eye cream I've ever used and I plan to continue using it. It's an expensive eye cream but worth every penny, in my opinion.
OMG NO! I got a sample of this and used it for a few nights and got a TON of little bumps around my eyes and my eye area got super dry. I've never had a reaction like this before. I see this works for some but it was terrible for me!
I am writing this review based on my observation of this product on my mom. She is in her late 50's, had lots of discoloration and some fine lines before using this product. Ever since she starts using this couple years ago, her discoloration has dramatically changed. I know it is a result of this product, 'cause she does not use anything else. I know because she lives in my house a few days every week when she babysits my daughter. She is the type that uses hand soap to wash her face, and uses hand lotion as face moisturizer. She does not wear sun screen, nothing! The only thing she would do, when it comes to pampering her face is this product. Very obviously, she now has brighter skin, very minimal discoloration, but still has some fine lines, but much improved from before. She applies a thin layer of this product religiously every night on her whole face.
I'm now considering using this myself. I will repost in the future.
I am against spending over $100 for any skin care product, but this is the exception. $120 dollars for .54 oz is quite a lot of cash to shell out, but since I am now on my second jar of this, I will recommend it. I have fine lines and dark circles underneath my eyes, so having a good eye cream is critical for me in preparing the eye area for concealer. With no eye cream, concealer will not go on smoothly; with too much or too heavy an eye cream, concealer will not last. With the Future Solution, I apply and let it sink in for about 5 minutes, and then I am ready to apply foundation and concealer. I love the way it absorbs into my skin. It enables my concealer to go on smoothly and last all day. I am giving it four lippies because I really think that the price is excessive, and perhaps one can find other similar products for about half of the cost of this. However, I do love it.
