I got a sample of this from Sephora and I have to say that I am unimpressed. First of all, I got a full night's sleep and woke up with dark circles under my eyes after using this cream. How is that even possible?! Secondly, I noticed the texture of the skin under my eye was dried out and almost crepey looking. My eyes do not have wrinkles and are not really aging at this point, so I cannot fathom why they look worse than before. Glad I did not actually buy this cream.
I got a sample of this (free) from sephora and this is so terrible I won't even finish the sample. I don't have super sensitive eyes and nearly burned them straight out of my head. I don't put this stuff directly in my eyes, but of course it's close enough that a TINY amount might slip in (like normal), I took no extra care applying this and MAN i wish i did. immediately they started burning the eyes. Even worse, I don't have the most sensitive skin and it even made the skin around start to tingle. Not in a good way. It is doubtful I will even attempt this again, so can't speak to long term effects. That said, this is so uncomfortable, I'm sure I can find many other brands to offer the same minimal visible long term effects that won't be so painful (clinique, MUAC). Steer Clear.
I have rather dark circles under my eyes, and I have tried many different creams etc. bought this cream because it was 50% off, and still rather regret spending any money on it. I didnt see much of an improve, yes it does help a bit, but for this price you can do a lot better.
Works good as a primer for the concealer, but is not really helpful in reducing dark circles. Would not buy it again.
Actually works! Faded my dark circles! Lovely creams consistency and very hydrating, lovely product!
I tried this as it came in a sample pack with some other benefit products. I like the consistency, and it did 'something' for the skin around my eyes but to be honest I think it just helps my concealer go on better! The bags do look a bit better but are still there, perhaps I was hoping for too much. Agree with the comments about the pot, a tube would be more hygienic. All in all I'm glad I haven't forked out for a big pot of it.
I normally love Benefit products, but I was very disappointed with this eye cream. I have very dark purple circles under my eyes and it did not make any difference (I used up the entire bottle, applying it morning and night). I also found that it wasn't hydrating enough and had to use a second cream, or my makeup would crease terribly. I also do not like when products come in jars like this because it's not as hygienic and with eyes you want to be extra cautious. All in all a waste of 30$
This is the only eye cream I've ever used that WORKS! My biggest problem is dark circles and they improve significantly with this product.
After Benefit discontinued EyeCon I switched to Origins Gin Zing eye cream having heard good things, but it was a disaster for me - despite the 'brightening' claims it made my bags look instantly worse and didn't improve over the day or even with 3 months' use. I recently switched back to Benefit (which I had been a bit reluctant to do because I wasn't sure whether the new It's Potent was the same formulation as the old EyeCon) and I've noticed a marked improvement almost instantly.
Yes it's expensive, but it's worth it for me. Don't have fine lines or dry skin yet thankfully so can't comment on those properties, but it works on dark circles and leaves my eye area feeling hydrated but not heavy with product.
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.
