Clinique All About Eyes
Advantages: Hydrates the under eye area, feels lightweight and smooth
Disadvantages: Didn't diminish my dark circles in the slightest
My aunt is a big Clinique fan. She has a habit of going down to their stand in the department store every couple of months, talking to their advisers and she always comes back with something or the other. I never got what her hype was all about. Then she got a free gift with one of her purchases one day with a few miniature products and she decided to give it to me to test and try out. I was obviously very pleased because I had wanted to try the products out but I didn't want to spend money on something I was unsure about.
The first thing I tried was this all about eyes cream which came in a small glass orange coloured container. The packaging was appealing I must admit. One of my main problem areas is actually my dark circles under my eyes so I was very impatient to see what this cream could do for me. I applied it to my under eye area before going to bed and it was very smooth and lightweight and felt like a luxurious product. It softened my under eye area, it hydrated it but after continuous use for a week, I didn't see much of a difference. It was really disappointing because I did have high hopes. I just think that it would maybe work for someone with tired eyes or dehydrated eyes, but if you naturally have dark shadows, this will not lighten them at all. For an everyday eye cream just to make sure your eye area is looked after, this is perfect. But if you have some sort of issue with wrinkles or dark circles, this isn't going to solve it.
It is said to be a moisture rich cream which in the long run, boosts natural collagen production. I of course had other expectations. I do not doubt on the other hand that it is definitely hydrating for the eye area.
Another thing that bothered me a little about this cream was that it smelt very much of chemicals. It didn't smell very nice which I wouldn't care about had the cream worked.
A 15ml bottle retails for 25 pounds which is a lot of money considering it is only a small amount. I'm glad I didn't spend any of my money buying the product. I definitely need something that specifically targets dark circles. I know they have now come out with 'even better eyes dark circle corrector' and as much as I am tempted to go and buy it, I am holding out a little longer for other people to see results.
Summary: Will not be purchasing this product.
