This eye treatment was too heavy for me. It never fully sunk into my skin, making my concealer run and crease. Also, I get the little white bumps under my eyes. I will not use again.

For some reason with me and Boscia products, it's either that I love them and they become staples in my beauty routine, or I hate them and have to return them. I love their Amino AG eye treatment and decided to try this in the winter because it is supposedly their most moisturizing eye cream. I didn't find the application as smooth as the Amino AG, and sort of had to tug at my skin to apply it. But the real downfall of this product is that it develops some sort of film that flakes up where you've applied it. Trying to apply mineral makeup or even a cream concealer over this eye cream was a flaking, pilling nightmare. I've since moved on to Caudalie Contour Cream for Eyes and Lips and Korres Evening Primrose Eye Cream for when I need something very moisturizing for my eye area, and I find that both of those are more moisturizing, long-wearing, and compatible with makeup than the Boscia Intensive Eye Treatment.

Claims to "lift, firm, and brighten" and reduce "fine lines and wrinkles."
I used this product every morning and evening for almost 3 months.

The pros:
1. It moisturizes. I did not have fine lines before, but during a harsh winter it kept my undereyes moist.
2. It brightens--my undereye area is now the same color as the rest of the skin on my face

The cons:
1. At $48, it's pricey
2. It does not absorb easily, leaving a white film under the eyes which is not visible alone but gunks up horribly with concealor. In other words, this product is impossible to wear with makeup.
3. I saw no lifting or firming benefits

Overall, I do not recommend this product unless you're willing to pay $48 for a brightening effect because other products moisturize just as well.

I love the Boscia line and wanted to love this product, but I don't. I use it at night along with the Recharging night moisture and I find that I wake up in the morning with a dry film of the stuff beneath my eyes. I have tried using less product, extensive patting, etc. but still wake up with the film as if product is just sitting on my skin. I also don't see any change in my skin texture at all. It is also a bit greasy for me, my skin doesn't absorb oil well, so that might be why it doesn't seem to be absorbed in the morning. The area around my eyes near my nose is the driest part of my face and I feel I need a richer product than this one.

I am a big fan of Boscia's Enlivening Amino-AG eye treatment, but was looking for something richer for the winter months. I asked for a sample of this during my last trip to Sephora and use this night and day after cleansing. It is much richer than the Amino AG eye treatment as it's more like a traditional cream and doesn't have the gel-like fondant texture. However, it STINGS if I get it in my eye. I didn't have this problem with the Amino AG treatment.

Despite being a richer eye cream/treatment, I could still apply my eyeshadow primer and eye makeup within several minutes. The cream absorbed quickly and did not pill when I tried to layer other things on top of it.

I'll update this review after several more uses and try not to get any more in my eye ;)

UPDATE 03/07/2009:

I've now used this for several weeks now so I think it's safe to say that I am not a big fan of this eye cream. It's definitely richer than the Enlivening Amino eye treatment, but not moisturizing enough for the winter time. The stinging persists, and the texture is somewhat tacky (like glue) going on. The skin around my eyes is hydrated when I wake up in the morning, but it doesn't seem to have any visible effect on the bags and darkness underneath them. I suppose there isn't really a miracle cream for that, but for what this does in terms of moisturizing, I'd stick to the Enlivening Amino eye treatment, which costs less too. continued >>
