I got this as a sample when I went to the clinique counter. I didn't want to use it due to the fact that I have eczema on my face, and tiny horrible patches on the side of the upper bridge of my nose due to wearing glasses.
I decided it would be ok to use since my dermatologist recommended anything by clinique. I'm VERY glad I used it. It actually softened the patches of eczema I had around my eyes and woke up my eyes quite a bit. It actually healed the eczema a bit too.
its true that a little goes a long way. also this isnt really an anti-wrinkle cream in any way its more a hydrating serum so you can use this BEFORE you actually start to see any wrinkles or crows feet. I loved this and I plan on getting the bigger jar as soon as this sample runs out <3. continued >>
I got this as a very generous sample from Macy's when my eyes were really dry and tired looking. It helped a little to rejuvenate them, but there were other eye products on the market that I felt were better. I like Clinique's Eye Surge Gel better. I will say that I do like the consistency...it is pretty light and goes on smooth.
Big props to the ladies at Macy's for giving me a sample that is like 3/4s the size of the actual product itself! If you want to try it for yourself, make friends with the Clinique ladies!
In the morning, this cream is a very good make up base and it helps with puffy eyes. The texture is light and it penetrates quickly. Like in a previous review, a little goes a long way so the price is fair but you can get something cheaper from the drugstore. Don't forget, this is not a firming nor an anti-wrinkle cream. You can expect smooth skin for an even make up application, not miracles.
This is my first ever eye cream before I switched to its rich version and sister company Estee Lauder. The price is decent and a lil goes a long way. It has caffein in ingredients just like many other eye cream to "wake you up" (you do feel more awake after applying this cream) and based on my personal experience, it must have more caffeine than Estee Lauder repair eye cream (I use night version sometimes for day)
Def a great buy and will repurchase.
I got a generous sample of this eye cream as a GWP. I've been using it for a few weeks now. I don't see any visible results. It is very moisturizing and helps to "wake me up" in the morning. I like the texture, it goes on easily and absorbs quickly. However, I wouldn't purchase it in full size. It's just an average eye cream, not worth the prize tag if you ask me.
I have a bit of dark circles under my eyes, and when i hit 20 i started to use an eye cream.
My eyes tended to crinkel all up when i used e/s so I was recommended this.
I turn the jar upside down, to get some cream on the inner plastic lid, and take a bit of cream with a q-tip. then i place the cream under my eyes and use my ringfinger to do circular motions around the eye, so you are massaging the cream in. This helps to brigthen my dark circles, and it also prevents puffyness in the morning. Now 3 years later i still dont have any wrinkles (if its from the cream or not, i dont know, but it feels great on my eyes
I'm still young so I don't use this for wrinkles. I don't think it would help even if I did have them, though. It did not help puffiness or the 'bags' under the eyes, either, though I have asked my doctor about this and she said that most eye creams will not help against it, and those that do often have a certain ingredient which tends to dry out the delicate skin of the eye area.
That being said, this eye cream was very gentle and did seem to soften the skin of my eyes. I bet it would be great as a primer for eyeshadow, too.
This is my first eye cream and It was recommended to me by a makeup artist who I usually go to for reliable advice and she insisted on me starting preventative treatment so I relented. I don't gave major issues except in recent years late night studying has given me
persistent dark circles that never seem to go away lol. I have been using this for about three weeks it's very hydrating takes time to seep in and it has lessened the appearance of the dark eye circles and leaves the under eye area looking bright. I still have the circles but very faint and I'm alright with that this is a starter cream and I'll switch it up when Sahar the makeup lady tells me to lol
I have dark circles, and i wanted something to help me clear them little bit and brighten my eyes more. before i bought it i did some research. so i bought it and used it for a month, nothing happened. this product did nothing for me, am very disappointed :(
I tried this a while ago when it came with my gift package. I went through two different jars and saw absolutely no difference under my eyes. Thank God I didnt waste my money on this.
