I was using Murad eye renew cream,Then I read about a research on Pubmed about role of creatine in aging skins and I bought it and I have to confess while it isn't a great one ,its so much better than more expensive ones that I have tried,mine is made in Germany( Q10 plus Creatine),Im satisfied with this and replaced it with murad,dont let the package and brand name deceive you,In long term it DOES WORK
okish product. at first i really liked it and thought it's amazing, it plumps the skin and makes your eyes pop out. after a few days it made my eyes watery and dry. had to return it. i guess it can work for some people with not so dry skin around their eyes.
I'm on my third tube of this, it's been on offer in my local tesco each time I've bought it which is a bonus so has been half price. I've never used eye cream before being just 25 but felt my eyes could look dark and I haven't been sleeping well the last couple of months. On immediate application (I use a pea sized amount per eye and apply to the corner then pat under into my bags) my eye area does appear brighter and smoother. The cream isn't oily and absorbs well. I can't comment on results re: wrinkles, I don't have deep set lines, but I feel the cream is beneficial for radiance, and for the price I'm quite happy with that. I'd expect to pay a lot more for any extreme wrinkle reduction to be honest, you can't expect miracles for a tenner girls! It sits well under my makeup and my eyes don't feel dry even after 8 hours at work followed by a workout. I apply morning and night and find a tube lasts around 4 weeks, so it's good value. Squeeze tube is also good as it means you get every last drop instead of a pump which I feel often robs you of the last of the contents in a container!
Overall this is a good eye cream - it absorbs well and it goes on fine under make up. I have ridiculously sensitive eyes (a strong wind can set them off!) and this doesnt aggravate them at all. Because it absorbs nicely I use it under my night cream as well.
Its also a good price (I paid £9.99 in Boots) and still have half the tube left after about 5/6 months of use, so its good value if, like me, you dont have the cash to buy something more expensive.
Tried this due to the hype about it being an all round good product.
I have slight dehydration, dark circles and a couple of times. But after 3/4 of the tube, I still don't see the effect...
Might be worth it for deep wrinkles (I don't have any of those so I can't say how well it works in this department). But don't pick it up if it's you're in it just for dehydration or dark circles.
Check out my blog review: http://wp.me/p2OuiT-4l
I bought this as two of my colleagues (one is 30, Asian skin, the other in mid 40s, British) warmly recommended it to me, and seeing as my other expensive eye creams weren't working ( Clarins, Clinique, Nuxe, RoC, Olay, etc) I thought I would give it a try.
I am pleased to announce that wrinkles have been softened, eye area seems firmer and circles lighter than before. Also, my eyes haven't been puffy at all.
FYI I get up about 6 am every day, have an active job and study at uni at night, averaging only 5-6 hrs sleep (I'm just one of those people who don't sleep a lot) and very excited to have found a very decent, affordable, easily available and pleasant cream that works without any side effects at all!
EDIT 14/09/2013: still ok, but there are better things out there. Decent budget option.
I liked the packaging. And I liked that it didn't sting my eyes or cause any irritation unlike one eye cream I tried. But that's just about as good as it gets. I have been using the product for more than a month and I haven't really noticed any changes on my eye area. I even developed crows feet :( Will not use this again.
Don't waste your money!
This is one of the worst eye creams I've ever come across. It actually DRIES your skin out, it's not moisturising at all. It makes no difference to fine lines etc It doesn't make any difference to under eye circle, it just coats your eyes in a horrible white cast.
This product went straight in the bin; other eye creams may not give great results but at least they don't make things worse.
I dont have any visible wrinkle so i am not able to comment on the effectiveness of this product in fighting wrinkle. But it does moisturizes the skin around my eye and it comes with sun filters. I only apply it during day time.
This is the worst eye cream I've ever used. It actually makes my eyes more red, more puffy, more dry and the fine lines look much worse than if I hadn't bothered using eye cream at all. My eyes are also very watery when using this. I tried to put up with it for 2 weeks to see if it would get better but it's going in the bin now.
