I have been using this eye gel since it came out more than 5 years ago. It is easily absorbed by the eye area (but it does not dry it out) and helps preventing wrinkles and puffiness. I have not had problems with eye stinging or being irritated by this product. Compared to other brands it is reasonably priced at £32 (the average price for eye creams in this market segment is £45, just crazy!) and for me it does the trick: I am nearly 40 and I do not have any wrinkles/lines around my eyes.
The packaging is not very handy. I would prefer a pump, but as I close the lid immediately after use and keep the product out of the light I have never had problems with the eye gel changing texture.
I use also the advanced night repair serum and I am equally satisfied with it (I have been using it forever!!). I would definetely re-purchase (I am at jar 10 ++!!).
The price tag of this product isn't simply justified. First, this stuff burns my skin around my eyes which never happened with others before. Second, it's not moisturizing enough for my late 30's skin. The silky texture is fine and fast absorbing though. Third, applying it with a ball spatula is such a hassle for me.
I am quite unhappy about this thing. Good thing it was a gift from my sister-in-law. I'm thinking I'd use it on my face instead. However, Advanced Night Repair for face was fine. I don't get it why Estee Lauder made this lousy, irritating eye gel.
I'm not in love with this eye gel... it doesn't do much for me like I was hoping for. But I've yet to find any eye gel/cream that's a miracle worker. So for the time being until i finish this little jar i will stick with it just because it's so freaking expansive.
I've used this product for a few months now. Previously I was using L'Oreal skin genesis eye cream. That did not do anything and it actually was accentuating lines that were beginning to form. I bought this product on a whim and in terms of getting rid of lines or prolonging the effects of fine lines, I like it a lot. It plumps out any of the lines that I'm starting to form. I don't see the line that i was starting to get. I'm 24 years old, so I'm trying to prevent wrinkles mostly. However, this product started to burn the skin around my eyes. When I first started using it, it would just be sporadic so I didn't think much of it, but recently my skin burns. Even after it dries, and I touch the sking under my eyes, I feel stinging. I'm not sure if I want to continue using this product, despite that it hydrates my eyes and fills out lines in a satisfactory way. I would try it and see if it burns. because without the burning, I do like this product.
Stay way from this product! not worth the price and made my eyes so sore and irritated.
Cant believe how much i paid for this and wot it did to my eyes!! Im now using a cheaper eye cream and its better than this pile of crap!
I have my fifth bottle of this eye cream,and could be the last one!
It used be one of my favorite eye cream, so I brought it for myself and sometimes for my friends as a gift.
This time I brought 2 bottles, again one for myself one for my friend. But this product is burning my skin around eyes.It's make the skin feeling weak and tired, and burning. This situation never happen before.My friends have the same feeling. We discounting using that. My friend give it to her boy friend, her boy friend have oily skin and also say it's burning.
I wondering if EL change the formation, so I found the product box I used before. They had the exactly formation on the box.
So the only possible reason it's there are something wrong with the product quality control.
I am very very disappointed with this purchase now.
Until now they didn't show a honest attitude to solve this problem, no callback, no refund.
I think they should re-call this product which produced recently,and give customers a refund so we will post it back to them,and they may know what's wrong inside. Otherwise I feel hard to believe this brand anymore.
I am 28 and have just got a few fine lines under my eyes which have been causing me great stress. Hence I have spent the last 6 months in search of a good eyecream to solve the problem. This is the best I have found so far. (For the record, I have also tried boots protect and perfect eye cream (harmless), boots vitamin E eye cream (harmless) and strivectin sd eye (fantastic, once your eyes get used to it - before that it's very harmful.)
Back to the adv night repair. It goes on silky smooth and feels very rich. The lines under the eyes are definitely better, probably because I find the cream very hydrating and I suspect the lines were caused by dryness. However, the lines are still there after 10 days use. However, the jar it comes in sucks, although to EL's credit they have given you a "spatula" which you use to dig out the cream, which also ensures you get the right amount each time. But a pump would have been so much better.
Finally, it's worth mentioning that I came across this cream because I asked an older friend of mine how her eyes always look so good, and she said she swore by this cream. I can see why now as it really is not bad. However I think the Strivectin is better if you can tolerate it.
First time applying this product makes my eyes feel supple and a few gentle dabs warm up the skin. Despite that it doesn't sting or burn
It smelt a bit like old sour grape wine, but that doesn't bother me much. I still don't have fine lines yet so I can't comment on that, I have to keep on trying to see about the dark circles instead because it may takes 4-6 weeks to tell. I'm happy that it glides on smoothly and decent absorbing capabilities.
Ok, I'm giving this product the worst possible valuation!
Why? It is jar packaged, gives me milia and it is absurd priced!
It is just silicone gel that fills a bit (visual) your eye lines. Nothing more, for sure.
This is my absolute favorite eye cream ever. I've been using this for 7 years straight. I've tried other products from L'Oreal to Chanel, and Estee Lauder ANR for Eyes is still my HG eye cream (or gel, actually).
One jar lasts me about 5 months. I use it twice a day, morning and night, after I wash my face. A tiny dot the size of a grain of rice under each eye is all that's needed. Follow the instruction sheet: Pat the gel on lightly with your middle or ring fingers. Don't get it too close to the eye - it will work it's way around your eye after you apply it.
It makes my eye area feel like silk. I use this before I apply a concealer, and it helps the concealer to glide on and keeps it in place (keeps it from settling into lines).
I am 38 years old and have no dark circles. My eye area looks really good - no puffiness and very few lines. I am very happy with how my eyes look for my age, and I credit this product (along with plenty of sleep and a good diet, avoiding the sun, etc).
A few times I forgot to take this when I traveled, I really missed it! It is an excellent product, worth the price.
Keep the product tightly capped, at store it in your dark cabinet. At the Estee Lauder counter, the sample is often left uncapped and it dries out. But yours won't if you take care to cap it after use. You can keep your eye gel clean by using the applicator that comes with it, and clean the applicator after every use.
