Sadly to say, I was disappointed in this product. The only pro to this product is that it contains SPF. I honestly don't know why all eye creams don't have SPF in them. Maybe those with very sensitive skin can't use it. This eye cream is thicker in texture than I prefer and it is tinted brown which I don't like. Because of these two factors you have to keep blending it under your eye, and I really try not to rub that area for fear of getting wrinkles. The worst part about the product was that it was sooo drying and I don't even have dry skin! I think it was the AHA's in the product. I am going to avoid products with AHA's in the future. BHA's are fine for my skin but AHA's are too drying. I actually felt like this product accentuated fine lines under my eyes that I didn't even know I had! After using it for a week 2x's a day, I gave this product to my mom, hopefully she'll have better luck with it since she likes products with AHA's.

I do not recommend this product to ppl with sensitive skin as well. It made my eyes gone red and puffy for 2 days.........Sad

as for eye care, I am still on the search for a good one, so, any recommendations?

I am in my early 20s, some pigmentation starts to show below my eyes. Mad

Though this does not have an SPF, the Dr. Irena Eris Eye Creme for Dialated Capillaries would be a good one to try. Cellcosmet Eye Contour Creme is pricey, but it is AWESOME, and is so gentle that you can even wear it on your actual eye lids. Phytomer's LIft Contour is a nice, gel-based product too.

You can always have your sun protection in your under eye concealer, such as Jane Iredale's Circle Delete.

Hi Dermalover, I am in my late 20's and as of late I have been using Orlane B-21 Oligo cooling eye balm. The only negative is that it does not contain SPF and I don't know that it will help with pigmentation. But it is very gentle. Wink
I copied and pasted some of my review for you:

"The woman at the Orlane counter recommended this to me she said it was targeted for people under the age of 35 or for those with sensitive, fragile, or allergic skin types. It is white in color and very light. I prefer creams to gels, but the consistency of this is between a gel and a cream and I really love the way it feels. Because of its light consistency you can dab it on without even putting pressure on your eye area. It's moisturizing without a heavy greasy feel and contains vitamins, trace elements and amino acids in it. "

Thanks Caspers Mum and thoughtcrime, I will go straight to Orlane's page to have a look Smile

However, I don't usually wear makeup therefore the circle delete may not be a good choice for me.

I am wondering if we can apply sunblock specialised for the face under eyes??
I am currently using Dermalogica's Solar Booster. I have to say this is the best best sun protection product that i have ever tried in my life. I love its non greasy texture but yet is not drying. Can it be used under my eyes as well?Very Happy

My spa had little travel size products for sale. I did pick up this eye cream because it was purse size AND spf. I go for lash tints and like to put an eye product on again before I leave the spa.

I had no idea it had a brown tint until I opened it!

I probably won't repurchase. I have only used once (sparely because of the tint).

Yes, if your sunscreen product does not bother your eyes. I like to use a treatment product first such as La Roche Posay Redermic or Active C and wait a couple of minutes. Then I apply my sunscreen protection.

I can use La Roche Posay UV 30 around my eyes. Clarins Spf 30 is nice and matt for the eye lids (if you wear eye MU)

I think for sensitive skin stuff with Vitamin C, fragrance, acids make your skin worse.

I know I've samples at least 10 or 20 eye creams over the years and most"high end" fragranc ones made my skin worse.

The worst this year was Benefit Eyecon,
my sister gave me a palette and there was a mini eye cream in it.

First time I used it over makeup and it was ok...
Next day try it on bare skin andleft me a very bad "burn" my skin was sandpaper rough,painful.
I tried everything to make myskin stop burning,
glycerin-no help, polysporin..felt greassy,
my regular eye creams i could not even use andhave been using the same ones for 5 yearsw no issues.

Roc lipbalm, and some beeswax cream from some "weird farmer girl" was all that helped.

The eye creams I can not use are Yves St laurent (they have a very fragranced one,,,had sample ages ago), lancome unless it is fragrance free (have lancome men eye gel and that is fine..cheaper than womens too), Dior capture..too harsh again.

Right now sometimes use Neostrata firming cream and neostrata their other eye cream without acids.

Sometimes nivea aqua whatever (it is cheap and fragrance free,doubt it helps with aging).
Olay eye gel (again cheap, fragrance free not many ingredients).

Oh and a must rebuy is Vichy men's eye stick.
it is the same as the women's eye stick but in black packaging,and sometimes goes on sale.
Women's vichy is always excluded from sales and more.

The Vichy eye stick feels so cooling and seems to help w eye puffiness.

I also like Neostrata wrinkle repair-the one without spf, it is around $60 for 30ml.
on my second or 3rd bottle now..

Forspf I recently bought colorescience powder sunscreen, no issues with that.
Was lucky to get some 2.5mlsamples a while ago Smile
