After my not so good experience with Nude, I had to go back to the basics. For me that's Shiseido Benefiance anti-wrinkle eye cream. However, I was so desperate to repair the damage asap that i asked the girl at Sephora to give me a sample of something i could use in connection with it. So i tried this Dr. Dennis Gross lift & lighten eye cream for a few days. Well, I have to say i liked it. It did tighten the skin under the eyes and moisturized pretty well. Not as well as Shiseido but i would wear it on top if i felt the need. The thing that prevents me from buying the Dr. Gross eye cream is the smell that i find well... gross. For a product intended to go on your face it's pretty amazing they weren't more concerned about the smell.Weird in fact. Or perhaps I'm overly sensitive but i don't think so. Overall, I would say the cream does what it says it will do (didn't notice the lightening effect, but i don't have dark circle so...) and the price is right. If you can stand the smell, you should try it.

I so wanted to love this cream. I'd been admiring the packaging for month, discovered that Bono's wife was indeed a founder, and was ready to shell out the $88 at Whole Foods and call it a day. Well I did shell out the money, but I'm getting it back because this baby is going back on the shelf. I'm not sure what this cream does...actually, it seems that, at first, everything seems tighter and smoother. For a short while only though. A couple of hours later you are back at square one or worst. The skin under my eyes got so dry and wrinkly and paper thin, totally dehydrated, I couldn't even believe it. I thought it was me, the heat in my apartment, the cold temperature outside...anything. I couldn't bring myself to return it after only 3-4 days so I went to Sephora and asked for samples of a very rich and thick eye cream to use on top of this one. 4 days after this regimen, I'm at Whole Foods again checking yet another eye cream. I discovered a brand I didn't know, Australian Scent I think. Tried it, and went home to discover that my lines and tired under eye skin had vanished. So, sorry Nude Advanced Eye Complex, you were not meant for me or me for you. Indeed, you caused more damage than repair. Judging by the young reviewers who love it, I would say it's safe to assume that this cream is meant for skin not yet mature, skin that basically doesn't have any particular need. I love the packaging of this line though...maybe I'll try something else. That color fits so well in my bathroom cabinet ;)
