Smells so yummy like vanilla and hazelnut coffee but it was so irritating to my eyes. I wear contacts so I dont know if thats why but it was just too oily for my skin and it did not absorb well at all which is no good for a daily eye cream, it just sat on top of my skin. If you have dry undereyes maybe you would like it.
Got a free sample size of this and I absolutely love it! I didn't really know if it was working well or not until my mom told me I had absolutely no lines around my eyes. I also love the smell of this. It feels so good to put this around my eyes in the morning.
This really did not make a difference to me. I really gave it a good shot too. I used it for 3 months, morning and night...never saw a difference.
First of all, this is one of those rare eye creams that you get a full OUNCE of. I had a full 7 months of use with this eye cream, applying this in the morning and at night. And I'm not one of those people who uses a huge dollop of eye cream - I used about the size of a grain of rice for both eyes.
I actually like the smell of this eye cream - it's like hazelnut coffee cream! But sadly, I didn't see ANY benefits, especially a reduction in dark circles, after 7 months of using this eye cream. Its price point MAY convince me to repurchase another eye cream from this line in the future, but not now.
Also, I dislike the pump packaging because for the last MONTH, while there was still quite a bit of product at the bottom, no more product would come thru the pump! So it was definitely annoying to try to shake this glass bottle to get the product on the bottom to come out of the opening. Eye creams in jars are at least much more convenient in that you can really use every last bit of product.
I am still in search of a HG eye cream that is all natural. Frankly, the only reason I bought this is b/c of the all natural ingredients and thought that "caffeine" will basically help reduce the puffiness of my under-eye area.
Firstly, the pump sucks!!! Everytime I tried to pump some cream out, TOO much comes out and it's SUCH a waste. I have to release the entire pump and just take some cream from there which is very unsanitary and frankly, a big hassle.
Second, the smell is a bit overwhelming at times when I go to sleep.
Lastly, I see no visible improvements after 2 weeks of use.
I would however, give another lippie (originally 2 out of 5 rating), for the natural ingredients as I feel safer using this. I will probably finish using this and explore other options, namely some Japanese products b/c they are of high quality and efficacy.
Yes...I would buy this eye cream again...and have, I think four times now...and it's the ONLY eye cream that I've ever reordered that many times.
I am NOT going to tell you that it has made my under eye darkness better, because it really doesn't (well...maybe a tad), and I'm NOT going to tell you that it lifts and tightens the skin around my eyes because it really doesn't (well...maybe a little). What I love about this product is that it's a really good moisturizer for around the eyes, and even on the lids (if you use it sparingly).
For reducing puffiness or getting rid of under eye circles...I use cold water, tea bags, exercise, cut down on salt and use a good concealer. I will admit, however, that except for the dark circles...my eyes are in beautiful shape for my age, but if I did have extreme issues, I would probably be saving my pennies for more expensive procedures than what ANY eye cream can deliver. Eye creams/treatments aren't miracle workers...they can only do so much.
This cream has a wonderful slip, so that I can apply concealer easily. For me, at least, it isn't too greasy and it isn't too drying (some of the gels actually are drying)...it's just right...ahhh:) I've only ordered it in the 1 oz bottle so the pump HAS always been an issue, but if I get a little too much...I work some out on my cheeks and always use some over the top of my lip to prevent the verticals. About 2/3 of the way through...I have to unscrew the pump and scrape out the rest.
The scent doesn't bother me at all, it disappears by the time I'm doing my makeup and each time I've ordered it, it smells just a little bit different.
AND...this is the first eye cream I've ever had that doesn't sting my ultra sensitive eyes (except for the chamomile eye gel at the health food store). I realize that this will not be the case with everyone. Heck...I'm sensitive to things that no one else seems to be bothered by.
AND...the price is right. I've tried other eye creams in between (deluxe samples I received...really good ones), and I went right back to 100 percent Pure. Will try the little tubes next purchase. Less muss and fuss with the stupid pumps.
I use this everyday. I found it to be a great basic eyecream. It doesn't do anything other than keep my undereye area from drying out. It works well with makeup and other then needing a little extra in the winter I have had no problems with it. I would buy again.
The first thing I noticed about this eye cream is it's lovely smell, it smells like chocolate with nuts, I'm so in love with the smell. It hydrates the skin around the eyes very good and it gets rid of some of the puffiness around my eyes. In the long run I have also noticed that my dark circles have been reduced, I don't know if it's because of the eyecream or because of something else.
Some other good things about this cream are that the consistency is creamy and that it absorbs quickly.
The best eyecream I have tried so far!
This smells like coffee and is very light weight. Lightly tap around the eyes. It absorbs very quickly. Not greasy at all.
I hated this product. The scent was the only good thing. It was way too greasy making it impossible to wear with makeup in the day and it irritated my eyes whenever I applied it at night before bed. I tried using it daily at first but that meant my makeup would smear, then I tried it nightly but realized it was actually making my undereyes look worse. I cant reccomend it.
