So I've been using this for 2 months. I'm 22, and the main complaints i have about my eye area is puffiness of my lids and under-eyes. Also, slight dark circles. No wrinkles yet so I can't really speak for that. I am prone to milia and this is heavy enough to moisturize, but light enough that it doesn't give me milia. The texture is like a medium lotion. Every night, I dab very little under my eyes, and on my eyelids. What has compelled me to do a review for this is how well it controls puffiness. I don't have a deep eyelid crease, and sometimes my eyes get so puffy after sleeping that I lose my eyelid crease altogether, giving me single eyelids. This is especially so around my period when I'm bloated and my eyes get puffy. I get very frustrated at this since single eyelids make my eyes look considerably smaller and the droopiness that comes with it prevents eye makeup from showing and staying on my lids. After 2 months of using this, I have observed that my eyes are no longer as puffy when I wake up, which means double eyelids always present!! Very Happy My dark circles also seem no longer as prominent as it takes less concealer to coverup. So if anyone is in the same boat as me (losing eyelid crease from puffy eyes, or just puffy eyes in general), do try this. I have used Cellcosmet, PSF Cranberry and other department store brands and they don't stack up to this.

Ingredients:
Infusion of: Wild Yam (Dioscoria Villosa) Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Extract, Arnica Montana Extract. Shea Butter, Aloe Barbadensis Juice, Grapeseed (Vitis Vinifera) Oil, Panthenol, Tocopherol, Sodium PCA, Sodium Hyaluronate

The above post is a review of the following product available at EDS:
Astara Botanical Eye Treatment (1 oz)
Astara Botanical Eye Treatment (1 oz)

A soothing, creamy eye gel that treats delicate tissue around the eyes with deep penetrating hydration from Sodium Hyaluronate, nourishment from rich oils and skin vitamins, and texture refining from cucumber extract. The appearance of fine lines and puffiness lessens while skin around the eyes becomes more moist and vital. Use as a nighttime eye mask or lightly smooth around the eyes over your favorite Astara moisturizer during the day.

Ohhh I should have read your review before I placed my order! Oh well will add to my lemming list for next time order on EDS.

This sounds exactly what I am looking for. Suffering from the same problem, perhaps even worse since my eyelid is smooth from eyebrow to eye, meaning not crease at all, except for a tiny fold near my eyes. Rolling Eyes

I was just thinking the same thing myself! This is going on my To Try list.

I am new to Astara, and I like its Botanical Cleansing Gele and Mineral Masque. I would like to try the eye cream too.
