I have been trying a few different eye creams in the last few months and I have a pretty good idea of what worked and what didn’t. Today I’m reviewing this eye cream from Clinique; there are two types – there is the original All About Eyes which is a gel-cream formula and then the rich formula. I will be reviewing the other one as well in the next few weeks.
This eye cream is available in two sizes: 15ml and 30ml. You save a bit of money on the larger size but I do recommend that you purchase the smaller one first to see how it works for you and they do last a long time about 5-6 months for the 15ml. I like getting the smaller size when the product is housed in a jar like this because it is exposed to the air every time you open it and you must dip your fingers in to apply.
This formula is a true cream – it is much thicker than the original All About Eyes. I have to rub my finger in the product to pick it up; I feel it almost melt upon contact. Once I tap this product under my eyes I notice that it absorbs very well which is important because my concealer will be able to sit nicely on top. I have very oily skin but dry under eyes which is why I’m on the hunt for a good eye cream, I definitely want to prevent wrinkles from forming by keeping the area moisturized.
This eye cream claims to diminish the look of puffiness and dark circles while helping lessen the look of fine lines. I’m 25 years old and I don’t notice any wrinkles now but I’ve always used an eye cream to moisturize and to help my concealer glide on and not look cake-y and dry. I don’t have puffiness but I do have dark circles which is caused by my blue/purple veins showing through my very thin under eye skin.
In conclusion; this eye cream performed very nicely in moisturizing my eye area however, I didn’t notice it lightening my dark circles (I don’t think any cream can).
**Update: I’m pretty sure this eye cream gave me milia (little small bumps) so I will no longer be using this.
