The only pro:
- I quite liked the packaging (hygienic tube).
- I could not notice neither any rapid moisturizing effect nor did it reduce the under-eye dark circles;
- the product did not absorb well and although I used really little of it, I was under the impression that it just accumulated under my eyes and formed some weird rolls there.
I don't think this cream does anything.. I can totally live wihtout it.
I don't have much undereye problems, I just have darkness under my eyes and it always feels dry after I wash my face. This cream does moisturize but it doesn't lighten up the dark circles :(
This is pretty expensive too.. it was like $17 CDN. Waste of money IMO! I would have rather gotten a nice facial moisturizer from. The packaging isn't great either. It's just this tube and you squeeze it out but once you've used it for a couple of weeks the product is annoying to come out and you have to leave it sitting standing up so that the product comes out..
Even if this was like half price, I probably wouldn't buy it again.
didn't work for me
it didn't hydrate
very bad on applying it to the gentle undereye
To be honest with you, I bought this because I was looking for a moisturizing eye cream, and not for what it's suppose to do( which is reducing appearance of fine line, piffiness, and dark circles). It does a great job in moisturizing, I don't know for the rest though :) Plus, I got it for free on their buy 2 get 1 free.
It burned my eyes every time i use it. At first, I thought it's b/c my eye area is too dry, so i continued using it, as long as it can reduce my fine lines and hydrate. But after 2 months of using it, nothing had changed, it did absolutely nothing for me! Dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, still there, and burns my eyes. Acturally, i think my fine lines are worse. Threw it out last night, andyou know what, i was happy that i did it.
I really like the Vitamin E line from The Body Shop. This is a soft, non-greasy eye moisturizer in a convenient tube. I don't use it for under-eye circles and don't know if it helps with that. I don't think it's supposed to be a fancy treatment but my eyes do look supple and moisturized afterwards. ;P I really like that it's not sticky.
been using this for 4 months, the cream texture is more of a light cream/lotion which I like but i found that this product doesn't live up to its claims :
reduce appeareance of lines?No
reduce dark circle?No
hydration?okay, but not great (give one lippie for this)
to make matters worst, at first few application it causes really small bumps (milia?) around the skin where I applied the cream, I do have ultra sensitive skin, but I persists and my skin eventually adapt to the cream and the milia's gone.
I added another lippie because I don't experince 'stinging' feeling like any other eye creams that I have used in the past.
but all in all, will not repurchase the cream...and still on the lookout for the 'best' eye cream, if any :)
I cannot say I like this product very much, I can say I cannot buy any product better than it in this price. I've used about 10 tubes, and I'm going to repurchase it before I can find something better in this price range.
I like that this comes in a tube, and it's very light and moisturizing. However, after using it religiously for almost the past year I fail to notice any difference concerning the dark circles under my eyes. I don't have any wrinkles yet so I'm not sure about how it would work, but I'm guessing not too well. Bottom line, it's good as a moisturizer and nothing more. And I hate saying this since I'm a huge fan of The Body Shop products, but there's better eye creams out there for the same price or less.
Pros: Keeps the eye area hydrated all day long, I hadn't been using eye cream for some time and since I bought this I can feel the difference. It's absorbed quickly but still leaves the skin a bit humid, and if you're using stick concealer it will blend much better. The packaging is good, only a tiny dot is enough to cover the entire eye area. It's not too expensive either.
Cons: It doesn't really reduce under eye shadows. But I don't think that a cream can miraculously make them disappear anyway.
I can't say anything about the wrinkle part though, because I don't have any lines/wrinkles at this moment. But I believe keeping the skin hydrated will help prevent them. This is a good buy for this price if you're looking for a nice hydrating cream.
