I am not particularly loyal to one brand of eye cream and like to have a change from time to time and will buy whatever takes my fancy and also what is on offer at the time. I bought this Clinique Repairwear Eye Cream from a local department store and paid £9.75 on offer. This cream is designed to smooth the skin around the eye area and leave your skin feeling firmer and looking smoother.
It comes in a white box with the usual list of ingredients and instructions for use. The cream is quite thick so it stays on my finger until I rub it in and it doesn't run. It has a light fresh smell but this is only very mild and delicate and you can only smell it when you first use it as it fades when you apply it to your skin.
It absorbs nicely into my skin and doesn't leave it looking greasy or shiny at all. This is the first time I have used this product but similar sized brands I have used will probably last me for around three months. I have noticed that the area around my eyes looks brighter and my skin appears to be smooth and firm. I would not say that this cream is better than others I have used but as my skin looks as firm as it did before this cream is working just as well as more expensive brands.
I will use this cream before I go to bed after cleaning and toning but before applying my moisturiser or night cream as I find I get the best results this way. I will dab a few dots of the cream underneath my eyes and then very gently rub it in using small sweeping movements towards the outside of my eyes. Your skin is very delicate in this area so you should try not to rub too harshly or for too long.
I would recommend this firming eye cream as it does smooth my skin and leaves it soft and looking healthy.
I have only tested this product with a sample i recieved of it when I bought two other products from the range. Howvere its really nice and I aply it at night after I have cleansed my face and just put it around the eye area and under the eyes. The feel is really smooth on the skin and quite thick so is a bit greasy but because you are applying it at night it doesnt really matter as you are not putting make up over it. The sample pot lasted me around 2 weeks and I did notice a brightening around my eye area. The texture of the skin around my eyes had not really changed but it did look brighter and more awake. I am only in my twentys so wrinkels are not really a problem but have been told to start using something now to prevent them slightly, and I think I will stick this product because it is nice and thick and smooth and makes my eyes much more awake looking. I would recommend this eye cream for changing the appearance of the skin around the eyes, however I dont know how good it is at getting rid of wrinkles as i didnt see any change in that.
