I love Benefit's Triple Face Emulsion moisturizer, so I decided to try out their eye cream.
At first I was not impressed. It sunk in super fast and felt like I had never put anything on. I figured I would give it a trial run for a few weeks to see if I could make it work. Nope! I hate it. I look like I have aged 5 years by the end of each day.
I still have lots left, but I am totally going back to Clinique's Anti Gravity eye cream. I should know better than to leave something that has proven itself.
The pros are that this comes in a cute bottle, but that's about it. Like other commenters, it stung my eyes when I put it on, even if I applied it super carefully. I also noticed that after a couple weeks of constant use, it made my eyes really gunky and gross D: I'm sure that for some people this would work, but for me it was awful. It's a shame, because when the Benefit salesperson put this on me in the store, it did seem to brighten my eyes and diminish dark circles almost immediately. But for $32, it was an expensive mistake. I've never really considered returning a used product before, but if I did then this would be the first! If you're interested in it then I would recommend getting a few samples of it and trying it out for a little while to make sure it works for you.
I read a fair amount of reviews on this product and chose to be a hopeful optimist. I shouldn't have to be quite frank. I bought this cream because the skin around my eyes is very sensitive and dry and the Canadian winter isn't kind to it. I found the consistency of the cream to be watery which I do not care for. I applied it and felt little to no difference in how hydrated the skin felt. It sunk in quickly, and that's really the only good thing I can say about it. After little over two weeks of continued use my eyes are a flakey, dry mess. Not to mention I noticed zero reduction in dark circles. I don't care for the consistency, the feel of the formula on my skin and it's done more harm than good at this point. Not to mention the glass jar packaging, I prefer a pump or a tube with my eye cream, seems more sanitary. So unimpressed, pass this one up ladies.
I have 2 samples of this stuff and it is nice and creamy...smells nice but I just don't feel like it does much other than make my concealer under my eyes go one smoother. My HG eye cream is Philosophy Hope in a Tube and it just doesn't compare. I like my eye creams really thick and super hydrating and this one is just watery in comparison.
It is just too pricey for the product's performance. I love many of the other benefit moisturizers etc but this one just isn't my favorite. I will use what I have but I will not repurchase it.
It's a bit pricey but it does make the skin around my eyes brighter and clearer. I was actually thinking just today that this is the first eye cream I have ever used that does not burn my eyes.
Rubbish rubbish rubbish. Also caused slight itchiness, flakiness and this was my second time with this (both times freebie sample sizes) did nothing.....
Don't waste your money
I have a mini size of this eye cream and I am not a fan. It smells like acid to me and it stings my eyes quite a bit. I will definitely not be buying the full size product. The price point is really expensive as well
It honestly didn't do anything for me. I got a small sample of it and I tried it a couple of times and I see no difference at all. It's quite expensive too.
Can't BELIEVE the bad reviews on this product! It won't work miracles, what will?, but is an excellent eye cream. I do not agree that this is a "young" eye cream. I will say that this is a DAY eye cream that tightens and instantly brightens my 57 year-old under eye area beautifully! I LOVE it. It absorbs well and due to optical diffusers, provides a perfect finish for concealer which I put only in the dark circles. My eyes look bright and rested. I use a Retinol eye cream at night, but I couldn't be more pleased with this one for daytime, highly recommend!
Not sure what is up with all the hate on this product--I got it in my Birchbox this month and I love it! I think it is definitely for "younger" eyes--I have been seeing the beginning of some fine lines and bagginess under my eyes and this is definitely doing the trick. My eye area is much much brighter, smoother, and firmer. I am a glasses wearer so the difference is very noticeable to me.
Smells great, consistency is wonderful, and feels very soothing going on. Would reccomend to women in their late 20's looking to get started on an under-eye regimen.
