I was a little surprised not to see better reviews for this product? I personally like it very much! I have been a die hard user of Chanel's Sublimage eye cream since its launch, but the $200 price tag was getting to be a drag. I ran across this Cell2cell eye cream on a clearance table at CVS, and when I saw it contained Dermaxyl, I gave it a shot (for $6.00 who wouldn't?). I love the Dermaxyl in Smashbox's primer and a few foundations I've tried. Other than that, I really had no expectations for this product, I didnt think anything could satisfy my Sublimage obsession! I've been using the Cell2cell for a few weeks now, and I am very pleased with the results. My eye area is very moisturized, it helps with puffiness, and it hasn't had time to do much or fine lines yet, but after seeing the positive results it's provided so far, I am staying hopeful! Honestly, I saw the negative reviews here and wanted to show it a little love and put the word out that at least a few folks are getting good results. I haven't seen the packaging issues with the lid like others have...but I do agree that the overall packaging could be better...honestly, it could be in a cardboard tube wrapped in a burlap sack for all I care, as long as it works! I don't find it stinging or irritating at all either, so that's a big plus. With what I've seen thus far, I'm giving it a thumbs up for now....will edit if that changes!

I think there are far better eye treatments out there. This product had a tendency to sting the skin around my eyes and the packaging was just plain TERRIBLE. It comes in a tube with a silver cap, but the silver is dissolved by products/oils - so you end up with silver flakes on your face. I called the consumer care number to alert them to this - and the customer service agent knew exactly which product I was referring to before I even told her! She said that they were aware of the problem, have received many complaints, and were trying to encourage the manufacturer to switch packaging. However, they were unapologetic and offered absolutely no solution. Their response was more of a "we already know, I'll mark it down, thanks for calling." I ended up removing the remainder of the silver on the cap with nail polish remover. Because of the product, the lack of customer service, and the marginal product performance - I will NOT repurchase.

I'm surprised by the prior review. I love this eye cream. I'm always on the hunt for reasonably priced, easy to find products that work. This line is carried exclusively by CVS (and is on sale now -- I'm hoping it's not discontinued).
So, for context -- I've got VERY dry skin, even on the hazy, hot, humid days of summer. The last year has been remarkably stressful, so I'm unsure if that or reaching my late forties (or both) has changed the skin texture around my eyes. It's dry, paper-thin, crepey. I feel for the first time in my life that I'm looking like I'm getting OLD! So, I've been on the hunt for something that could address the dryness in particular, hoping to resolve the crepe-iness as well.
I happened upon Lancome's collaser, which seemed to soften the fine lines but only temporarily; I tried the Biotherm Skin Vivo product; I tried Genefique. I was settling on Kinerase's Restructure Firming Eye Cream, which I do love for addressing my profound dryness, when I saw that Prevention Magazine recommended this eye cream. It's comparatively cheap, as eye creams go, so I tried it. And I'm a convert to Skin Effects.
My eyes look more rested, more moisturized (but not at all shiney), less crepey, with a noticeable reduction in fine lines. The effect seems enduring, by which I mean that I'm not noticing the same lines after I wash my face/shower if I wait to apply moisturizer. I don't look pooped at the end of the day. I noted that my skin responds positively to hyaluronate, and this has retinol in it as well. I have no irritation or development of milia with this product. I've been using it for roughly a month.

I'm not impressed with this eye cream. I've been using this cream am & pm for over a month now with no improvement in the eye area. I'll be honest, I was drawn to the fancy medical name of this cream "cell 2 cell dermaxyl biotechnology" and thought it would work good. My eye issues are: 1. Puffiness 2. Permanent Dark Circles 3. Few Tiny Fine Lines 4. Crepiness/Dry Under Eyes. This cream did moisturize the eye area okay I've had better but that is all this cream did. The formula is white, ordorless, and somewhat thin. I didn't breakout from this nor did it produce those tiny white bumps under my eyes like some do. The packagaing sucks, well mainly the cap. I like the tube design but the cap is very cheaply made. The cap is white underneath & coated with a silver painted surface. After a while, the silver paint chips off into tiny pieces and you'll end up getting it all over your hands & face. Eventually, I was using a papertowel to open the cap to avoid the mess. I beleive this eye cream was in the ballpark of $25.00 and sold exclusively @ CVS. Dr. Jeffrey Dover does have some hidden gems in his line, just not w/ his eye creams!
