I'm just not convinced this product is a must have. I like its smell, a bit like cherries. But I haven't noticed any visible effects so far. It feels and looks like your average drug store brand cream.
And I must say that however I can usually wear creams in my eye area (even ones that aren't meant for it) without them causing irritations, this one does irritate my eyes. It makes them water and sting a little. Worse, I can actually peel this cream off. An eye product that leaves particles that can easily end up into your eyes is a bit of a " no no" for me.
I thought this was ok. I bought it in part of a combo pack with the time-zone face cream. For the price, I would expect a more rich cream. I prefer Shiseido Benefiance eye cream.
I'm meh about this product. I got this as a GWP otherwise I would not have bought it due to the jar packaging. The product seems to be having an identity crisis - not quite a moisturiser and yet not effective enough to be a treatment product.
I've been using it cautiously around my eyes and more generously on my forehead and it doesn't seem to be doing either harm or good. I should note that this doesn't feel moisturising enough around my eyes to skip my nightly slathering of Cetaphil lotion. It seems to me to be one of those products that exist to be sold - not to meet a specific need.
This is a gel-cream, so it's not very moisturizing. It left my dry skin looking even more dry.
I been use this hopefully help my early winkle not that much b/c i'm 28. Everything come with longterm use, so i also purchase the full size + sample size from free gift. I use almost up everything but nothing change and not event moisture. Won't buy again, cont. to use up the jar but never come back to this.
I've tried this eye-cream for a whole jar, which the ad states that will make you look ten years younger: but I found it NOT working at all! It even dries out the eye area and I feel a bit harsh for my skin. The cream is expensive, does not work in any way that the instructions or the ad claim. It's a total waste of money. I'd rather go for another brand no matter they're more expensive or not -- I need to search for a new brand eye cream that WORKS!
Compared to the regular Time Zone creme, I like this better. It's a lighter, gel-type version of the original, supposed to be used as an eye cream. However, I think it's too light for that purpose and used it over my entire face instead, including the eye area. Gone was the shine and eye irritation (due to the SPF) I get from the face creme. This sinks into my skin and leaves it feeling soft and silky. My mineral makeup went on smoothly and there was no brush drag or the 'too heavy feel' regular TZ leaves me with. That said, it's too expensive to use as a face cream on a daily basis. I won't repurchase.
I love Estee Lauder but this particulary product..i don't like. IMO i dont' think it did anything other than moisturize my eye area. My top eyelid has been flaky and really dry and i rub this cream sparingly at night before bed and in the morning and it moisturizes well but it doesn't do anything else. I've been using this for almost 2 months now and I haven't seen good results! bummer=(
I'm kind of "if-y" on this product. I've been using it for 3 months now and here's what I have to say:
The consistency is perfect for an eye cream. Not too rich/oily feeling like some of the others I have used such as Clinique's All About Eyes (I do still occasionally use AAE if I've had a particularly long night... it works on bags for me!).
It does moisturize my eye area and provides a nice smooth area for eye makeup application.
The amount of product for the price. There is a lot in the jar!
The jar... it just seems so unsanitary to me. i wish it were in a tube.
The price could be considered steep by some at $43.50/jar.
I've been using it for over 3 months now, and have not seen any visible disappearance of fine lines under my eyes.
I'll keep using this because I paid for it and it does have some nice moisturizing qualities. This eye cream has not really reduced any fine lines, but I'm optimistic that maybe it has slowed the onslaught of new wrinkles. I've tried some other eye creams to disastrous results and this one seems to work well with my sensitive eyes and skin. That said, there is a tiny bit of a tingle when I apply it at night, but nothing unbearable and I've noticed that the tingling has lessened the more I use the product.
i hate to give EL products a bad review.....but here goes.
I've been using this faithfully every single day for 6 weeks. i dont notice any diff in the lines around my eyes, except now in the last couple weeks I have noticed bags, dark circles and these half moon things that look like scars developing from the bridge of my nose to about halfway under my eye. Is it possible that an EL product could have made my eyes look worse?
I will say however, I LOVE the consistency of this product. it feels so nice going on and soaks in, doesnt feel greasy or oily. its a fantastic moisturizer, but alas, its not working for me.
I would love to give it more time, but Im afraid how I might look after 12 weeks. Now I have to find something for lines, puffiness and dark circles....FML
