My sister just bought this for herself a couple of days ago, so I went over the ingredients to see whether I can use it too (I have very sensitive skin).

This cream contains Sodium Benzoate, which on its own, is safe. However if you mix sodium benzoate with vitamin C, under certain conditions, benzene can form. Benzene is carcinogenic. And this cream contains not one, but two forms of vitamin C (listed as Calcium Ascorbate and Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate).

Yes, benzene may or may not form, depending on various factors, but personally I don't want to take my chance.

I like this eye cream it's good for makeup application and a great night eye cream. It does hydrate the delicate eye area and does help smooth the dryness out.

I have been using this for two years now.

+Moisturizing
+Doesn't cake under makeup.

-Doesn't really contain any anti-aging ingredients
-Does nothing for fine lines or circles
-Not as natural as they claim: contains alcohols and fragrance.

I will not be buying this again.

So far so good, this is a nice thick moisturizing eye cream which doesn't leave my eyes greasy. I don't know how well it does for fine lines yet since it's my first day using it, but I will review again in a month for an update. It also smells yummy!
