I got this free, as a part of a Clinique gift with purchase. I would have never bought it on my own, and I've never really tried an eye cream before. I've been using this for a couple weeks now, and I think it's a good product, though I have no real comparison for eye creams. I like it and it seems to work well for my dry lids, and undereye area, I just don't think I can justify the hefty price tag, for something used to moisturize such a small area, if it isn't an absolute must have.
This is one of the most expensive eyecreams Clinique makes. It's $38.50 for a 0.5 oz jar. You do use very little each time so it should last about 4-6 months with daily usage. It has a LONG list of ingredients but most of them are plant and fruit extracts. Phew!! It is not very moisturizing if your eye area is super dry. It feels soooo creamy and soft like BUTTER when you apply it. And it sinks in very quick. There's no sticky residue... i think i would like some stinky residue because it makes me feel like the eyecream is moisturizing. I'm 25 so i have no wrinkles, so i don't know how well this is working. I'm only using this as a preventative measure. It feels comfortable on my skin so i may repurchase once i run out of it.
I'm starting to get to the stage in my life where I need to worry about eye creams, so I'm still learning what works and what doesn't. But I got this as a GWP and thought I'd give it a go. I have the slightest of fine lines, slightly dark circles, but my main concern is creping (way too many years of carelessly pulling at your eye area will do that). Well, that and not looking like a zombie from being chronically sleep deprived thanks to having a baby in the house... After a few days, I noticed that the dark circles were almost gone, and overall I looked more rested. Not much change in the creping, but I wasn't expecting miracles. But lo and behold, I'm starting to break out in my eye area! I'm so disappointed. Is there an eye cream that doesn't break out acne-prone skin? I don't know yet, but this certainly isn't it.
Pros: This eye cream is very easy to apply, has a wonderful light creamy texture, absorbs very well, and makes my skin feel soft but not greasy. It is easy to apply my eyeshadow and liner over this. I have not had any problems with irritation and I have very sensitive eyes. I like this better than All About Eyes, it seems to be more hydrating.
Cons: It is ridiculously overpriced - like all Clinique eye creams, only even more so. And it comes in a little jar, not a tube, so it's not as hygenic as I would like.
I got this as GWP and don't know if I will actually buy it, mainly because of the price. But I would go out of my way to get it as GWP again.
it works. i got this as a free gift along with my purchase. iv used clinque for years and i love it. i didnt see it work at first but slowly i noticed a difference. only thing is you gotta keep up with it every day.
Got this during bonus time. Clinique offers great gifts during bonus time!
Overall, I love the consistency of the cream, it's creamy, and smooth, and not too thick; however, I really don't see a difference around my eye area than when I used a cheaper eye cream (Biotherm's Source Therapie). For this price, I would rather get Clinique's All About Eyes ... which seems to work the same.
Eh. I can't be sure, but I think this stuff made my eyes sting and feel blurry. I tried it for a few days and wanted to give it more of a chance, but I think I remember using this some time ago and the same thing happened - so that could just be my own sensitivity; however, I didn't really notice any immediate difference. I use - and LOVE - MAC's moisturelush eyecream, but I thought I could trade off or layer them, but MAC's does the trick. I'm sold... this, again, was just "eh" even aside from the apparent allergy.
I really like this eye cream. I might try the other clinique eye creams to give them a shot, but I really find this better then any other brand that I have tried.
I used the lancome one before this but it did nothing compared to this one.
I look all bright and fresh when I put it on and I can mix it with my concealer to give that dewy look.
I so wanted to love this eye cream. The first couple of nights I used it I thought it was fantastic - it's wonderfully rich and moisturizing. But after a few nights the cream started to really burn my skin on contact. This is not all that surprising since most eye products, gels, creams, etc., cause the skin around my eyes to burn like the devil. But I had hoped this cream would be gentle. I will be returning this product.
This product is amazing. I use it under my eyes every night to help get rid of my dark under eye circles, and it works amazing. I have been using it for about two months and I have seen my under eye circles lighten up. It is pricey but definitely worth it.
