bought it for 16CDN at walmart. I bought this because of the reviews on mua. it comes in a little glass tub like in the pic, thus its not very hygienic when u dip your fingers in there.
i've been using this everyday for almost 4 months and i haven't seen any significant differences in my under eye area. i have fine lines and dark circles.
it does however hydrate the area the instant i put it on, but when i wake up the next day it looks the same again. i wouldn't buy this again. i just hope i finish it soon
I like this eye cream. It moisturizes and tightens my undereye area temporarily and makes a great base for undereye concealer. Will repurchase.
This product is good for moisturizing but does nothing for puffiness or dark circles. Don't waste your money on this.
I don't like that this eye cream is in a jar and it really does nothing for my eyes. Its not very moisturizing and I notice no difference in my dark circles.
it's a great undereye moisturizer, however, it does not do very much, if anything for my wrinkles and dark circles.
the only reason i wont purchase it again, not even as a great moisturizer, is because under the eye is fine but when i put it on my lid it become red, swollen, and itchy. i'm sure it is this product that did that as i changed nothing else in my skincare/make up regime. i even stopped applying it to the top lid, waited like a month, then tried it again, still red, swollen and itchy.
This product was disappointing to me. It's okay for just moisture, but it did nothing for darkness, puffiness, wrinkles, etc. even after 2 months of usage! :(
I usually hate anything or product that comes in a jar for hygienic purposes. I really needed to find a new eye cream at a decent price. After reading many rave reviews I thought why not and so far I haven't been disappointed. I use a q-tip to prevent my fingers from contaminating the cream. The cream is quite a thin consistency, but a little amount is required to get great coverage. The cream smells nice, absorbs quickly, a noticeable decrease in puffiness within 10 minutes of application, and makes concealer application a dream. I will update my review as I continue to use this gem.
update: After using this cream for 2+ weeks I have found that my under eye area is not getting enough moisture I have found from other creams. I've noticed I wake up and my under eyes are dry (despite applying the cream before bed) and I have more fine lines now!!! I'm tossing the rest and finding a new cream.
I've been using this for a month and I haven't noticed any difference. It did make my eye area feel softer but I think I could use almost any cream to do that. It didn't get rid of any fine lines. I don't think this cream was what I really needed. My eyes didn't really need a "lift". And I think that the fine lines I had are more noticeable now which apparently could be from the tightening action of the cream. It did make my eyes burn and water the first few days I used it but that went away. Still, that can't be a good thing. I wouldn't buy it again.
I was skeptical to be sure, but I have to say that this eye cream actually works. I've developed some fine lines under my eyes, and they have very noticeably lessened after using this, and the skin under my eyes is also much firmer. It blends very well with my concealer, and doesn't irritate my super-sensitive eyes. It comes in a cute little glass jar too; I love it :-)
My undereyes tend to be puffy with bags, but this cream firms and lifts beautifully: I noticed a difference after only one day. I'm over 30 but don't have wrinkles so I can't evaluate the "anti-wrinkle" claim; however, this product moisturizes and absorbs just as well as other eye creams I've tried. For its firming results, I would rate this product far above Oil of Olay, Neutrogena, and L'Oreal as well as Clinique, Avon, and Mary Kay. I have tried many eye creams and samples, and this does the best job firming. Next I will try the Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG eye cream since it's gotten good reviews here, but I'm positive I'll return to Garnier in the future if only to rotate with a more expensive cream that also works well for firming under my eyes (Boscia's is $38; Garnier's on sale is $15). Almost every eye cream I've ever used comes in a package twice as big as the actual product amount, so while I was disappointed not to have more cream in the jar, I wasn't surprised.
Many eye products moisturize with ingredients that "plump" your wrinkles to make them disappear--that's fine if you're older and/or don't have undereye bags or have puffiness, but gals like poor me look like we haven't slept in a week or we've been crying all night when we use those creams--they turn us into blowfish. On the other hand, eye creams that "firm" instead of "plump" will most certainly tighten up the undereye area, which yes, could creat itty-bitty wrinkles since the skin is tightening (pulling tighter). So you have to figure out what makes you look younger and healthier: fewer wrinkles or a tighter eye area. I suppose you could try using one cream to tighten underneath the eyes and then another cream to plump your crow's feet, but I found that Garnier's cream doesn't pull too tight on me, that it still moisturizes very well. At the price, I think it's certainly worth trying unless you really don't care about firming at all. I hope this review helps!
