I bought this about a week ago because the price was right. So far I like it better than the Avalon Organics Lavendar eye treatment I've been using. It does take a while for this one to absorb into the skin, but I think my lines are a little less pronounced.
I'm occassionally putting the Avalon on top of the Olay too to use it up and get my money out of it. I'm mostly using the Avalon on my forehead, etc. to use it up because it is a great moisturizer for my acne prone skin.
Good overall product. Light scent and easy to apply.
I'm with bjcourville on this one.
I'm 22, have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and am prone to rashes when I use the wrong product. Although this is an eyegel, I used to it as a moisturizer and as a base for makeup when I ran out of my regular moisturizer. It was pretty much a stroke of brilliance. My skin has never looked better! No spots, reduced oiliness and a smoother texture.
I thought it may have been the "gel" formulation, and tried Clinique's "Dramatically Different" but didn't meet with the same success.
The only issue, however, is that the jar is tiny and this can be mildly expensive at that size, if used as a moisturizer.
I applied this once and noticed that it always stayed tacky - it certainly didn't absorb well into my skin. The next day I had a similar reaction as the other reviewer below. Areas of skin under eyes became very dry and irritated. It also gave me much larger wrinkles then I had to begin with from the dryness - what a find - NOT! Would never purchase again and was a total waste of money.
i like a gel eye cream but this was a little sticky and did NOTHING for me. (i managed to use up the whole thing anyway) it was soothing, cooling and light and that's it. will not buy again.
I've been using this for about 9 months. I didn't realize how dry and dull the skin around my eyes were until I started using this gel. I use it after my cleanser and before moisterizer. It does tend to be sticky for a few minutes if I use too much, so it's a good idea to use it sparingly, and don't glop it on heavily.
Although I have sensative skin, and tend to have allergy eyes, this eye gel feels cool when I put it on, makes eye makeup look fresh all day, and doesn't irritate my eyes at all. This inexpensive eye gel is a staple of my face routine and althogh my clensers moisturizers change from time to time, this is definately a favorite.
UPDATE: Almost 2 years later and this is still my daily eye gel. I try other products here and there, because I love trying new things, but I always come back to this.
I used this product for little over a month and had horrible results. At first, I found this product soothing. It did not provide much moisture but I like a gel consistency. Well, I must have had some sort of allergic reaction because the areas around my eyes are incredibly dry and wrinkled looking. The skin actually began to peel. I stopped using this product and immediatey the skin around my eyes began to heal. I would not recommend this to anyone!
People who complain this is sticky are not applying it right. Apply a SMALL amount, don't glop it on. Rub it gently in, do not pat like a cream. Use it on slightly damp skin. It is wonderful when used properly. I LOVE it.
I used this product morning and night faithfully for a month. I did not notice any difference whatsoever. It's nicely presented and is nice and light and cool. It may feel nice when you put it on, but does absolutely nothing for appearances at all in my opinion. I won't buy it again.
i dont like this gel. did nothing to my eyes- NOTHING- din not work! i got thhis super sticky feeling under my eyes. thats all. i hate it..
