Review of Avon anew force extra eye cream by toxicapathy
I've been on a quest for a new eye cream after my HG was discontinued, and since I have dark circles and this claims to reduce them, I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm very disappointed.
First off, it's a bit expensive; $22 for 1/2 oz. I used the whole thing up simply because I felt awful about the prospect of wasting it. Second, hate, hate, HATE the jar! I'm not a fan of jar packaging to begin with, but this one has a wide tapered shape with a narrow mouth, so it's next to impossible to get to product around the edges once you hit bottom. I had to dig it out with a mini spatula, and I still missed alot, I'm sure of it.
As for the product, I found it much to heavy and greasy for my taste. This cream is recommended only for undereye use, so I only put it there. It never really felt like it absorbed completely, and my concealer would slide right off of it. Very bothersome. To add insult to injury, I found absolutely no improvement whatsoever in the dark circle department. None. Perhaps a little bit of lifting and firming, but there are better quality products out there that will provide this as well, without the massive drawbacks.
Perhaps it's possible this cream may be useful for someone with EXTREMELY dry skin under the eye, but for the price I still don't beleive it's worth it. I don't recommend this product, and I definitely will not repurchase. It's too bad, because Avon usually makes very good quality products at a nice value, but this one just falls flat.
