I just started using this eye cream yesterday and today, my eyes feel tight and look more crepey and I look like I have been crying. They do feel smoother. I do have very sensitive skin under my eyes. Should I carry on using or do you think I am having an allergic reaction. Please help

I used an entire tube of the StrVectin Eye cream and I didn't see it help the lines under my eyes at all. If you're showing signs of irritation I'd consider using something else.

The skin around your eyes is very delicate. If using the product yesterday and today has resulted in a crepey, irritated look, my vote is to "kick it to the curb".

Just wondering what's looking "crepey"?

I think if it feels irritated, try stop using it, and then try back in a few days and use a little less. If it continues to irritate, don't use it. I never liked Strivectin-SD for the body or face, so I am already biased against the eye cream. Same reaction for Hydroderm. It never worked for me, so now when I see them advertise, I wonder how they can stay in business.

Hi thanks for replies.

Eyelid is crepey. Under eye feels really tight and is very dry, highlighting the fine lines more!!! Have stopped using on eyelid and using it under the eye and then putting my usual eye cream on top to keep it hydrated. Only going to try for another day and see what happens. This has happened a lot with eye creams, really should try to get testers first.
