I bought a travel sample set of IT Bye Bye under eye concealers at Sephora and a little travel sized version of eye cream came with it. I have fairly deep hollows, dark circles (accentuated from the shadow of the hollow) and lines under my eyes, plus since hitting perimenopause, my eyelids have dropped and have become hooded within one year.
So, I decided why not, sure.
When I first tried it, it didn't work and I threw it in a drawer.
Then I read reviews on Sephora several months later and decided to give it another go. But this time instead of putting it on sparingly and very thinly, I put it on quite thick. Then left it, went to work. Half way through the day I caught myself in the mirror and saw my hollows had filled out! So my dark circles weren't nearly so bad anymore and my whole skin was brighter around my eyes.
OK. I'll give this a serious shot then. It has been 8 days. And yeah, if I put a thick layer of cream on, let it absorb, it really does help the look of my eyes. So I started using it before make up (I can't wear make up to work) when I go out, and I don't have to use anywhere near as much concealer/colour corrector.
Considering the price of decent product mature skin eye cream, it is very reasonable. And there is quite a bit of product that you get for your money. But I do have to put it on thicker - perhaps because of perimenopause my under eye is just very dry.
