I was looking for a sunblock for eye area. I saw the reviews here are so good that i think this will be the right one for me. Reviews include no milia seeds, not too oily. etc.
I used then i have to stop. Used and stopped. Because it gives me milia seeds on the upper eyelids and lower even when i tried to apply very little.
I am surprised that none of the reviews here state that.
Is it only me? Most of the ppl said it's dry. I find it oily and sticky, if u try to feel it by patting ur fingers on areas applied. Maybe it's because most ppl wear make-up or powder over it. I bought the lancome uv expert for eyes, even more oily, gives milia seeds. But my colleague using the uv expert has not complaints, maybe she applies makeup on top of it, so it will matte it out. Not sure.
At the moment i just try to look for a big sunglass.
Aside from the fact that it is an spf 30 eye cream it blows. No moisture, makes skin look worse esp. with makeup. Big let down. I prefer shiseidos spf eye cream but haven't tried any others. (oily skin prone to milia -=sad face=-)
I repurchase this product about once a year, and my experience with it has been excellent. I use this light cream on a daily basis for sun protection and a little bit of moisture (if you are expecting something that provides a lot of hydration, however, then this is not the product for you). Having had problems with milia from a variety of eye creams in the past, I can safely report that I've had no issues whatsoever with this product - a little drop is all that needed for each eye, and makeup applies well over it. I use it on the lids, the outer corners, and under the eyes, and simply follow with a bit of shadow primer before applying color (I like Too Faced Shadow Insurance or MAC's Soft Ochre Paint Pot). Just be certain to blend it in well, as it is a white sunscreen. Given that I use it every day and it is oil-free (a big plus for my combination skin), I find the price point very reasonable and will definitely continue to repurchase this product. Oil-free daily eye creams with SPF are practically non-existent at any price, and this is definitely the best in its class.
went to sephora for the first time and this was my first want. and i have to say i love this so much.
slightlu brightens my undereye, no fragrance, i like the tube, doesny irritate :D
although this product doesny moisturize the eye (doesnt say that it will anyways) so i use another moisuriziny eye cream but i leave it for 15mins before it.
the price is $40 for 20ml but i couldnt find any other eye spf so and i only take teeeny tiny bit. do remember to use a creamy or a somewhat heavy eye cream because this can dry your under eye.
the consistency is somewhat runny liquid but dries out pretty fast.
oh and also becareful when applying other eye cream or any makeup products like cream concealer or pressed powder over it cuz it could leave you with white cast ish. so just pat it dont drag it
I really like this. It's true that it is basically just a sunscreen, and that it leaves a slight whitish cast. But with my fair skin, this works really well to just brighten the under eye area. I use this as my daily under-eye cream and it disguises any dark circles a bit while helping to prevent wrinkles. It hasn't given me any problems, which is something given that I break out from almost any sunscreen.
This is a good sunscreen. But that's all it is.It offers nothing in the way of moisturisation. It dosen't contain any ingredients beneficial to skin ie antioxidants.When I used this I had to use a seperate eye cream underneath. Bit pointless really. I'm not an eye cream person. I firmly believe that if you are using a well formulated face cream that you can use it around eyes, especially as a lot of eye creams do not contain sunscreen, so are useless for day use. A good face cream with spf that contains added vitamins and antioxidants would be my choice these days.I wouldn't buy this again, not because it's a bad product, but for the above reasons. Anyone who is going to buy this, it's expensive , but lasts for ages and comes in a bigger than normal tube, 20ml instead of the usual 15, so it works out not too bad.
I apply this after lotion. Once it's dry, I put Revlon Colorstay foundation over it. The result: I look 50 - it settles into the wrinkles under my eyes. There's this weird buildup of white gunk all around my eyes. Just horrible.
HG status item. I have bought this product time after time because I cannot live without it. It's safe for the eyes, absorbs fast and offers protection from the sun. It definitely wards off fine lines and wrinkles. Have used this for 5 years. Great product.
I was pleased to find a mineral sunscreen specifically for eyes. Unfortunately this irritates my eyes. I still use it occasionally when i'm going to be somewhere very sunny, and each time my burning tearing eyes remind me why i do not use it regularly.
I bought this before I found out about sunscreens and UVA rays and which ingredients block what. Unfortunately the only sunscreen this contains is Titanium Dioxide, which only protects against UVB and UVA2 rays and doesn't protect against UVA1 rays also. This has an SPF of 15 and a PPD rating of 4.4-4.9 depending if the titanium dioxide is water or oil phase. I bought it for protection from the aging effects of UVA rays which this clearly does not provide.
