QUICK REVIEW: This eye cream even livened up my poor “Mommy Eyes” – which had dark circles, bags and were dry from lack of sleep. First eye cream I’ve gotten excited about in a long time.
the REVIEW (1/27/2011): I have been using the Exuviance Age Reverse Eye Contour Cream religiously over the last four weeks. So far, this is one of the best eye creams I’ve ever used. Isn’t it wonderful that it’s $68 instead of $168? Although I would consider buying it for the latter.
What makes this product so amazing is that it moisturizes, firms and brightens without causing puffiness. There really has been a visible improvement in the quality of my eye area – even with the lack of sleep I’ve experienced over the last few weeks. Exuviance Age Reverse Eye Contour Cream also worked well under makeup, did not burn or sting upon application and comes in a pump – which is the ideal dispenser for eye products.
The cream is neither too heavy or too light; it has the “right” consistency of feeling moisturized but absorbs neatly into the skin. Be sure not to use too much (about the size of a rice grain) and remember to PAT into the orbital area (right on your eye socket – you can feel the bone under your skin). Eye cream is really the forgotten key when it comes to age prevention. Now that I’m in my late 30’s – I can see the difference between my friends who use eye cream and those who don’t. My theory has always been: Its better to prevent all together than to correct later on.
NOTE: Luckily, wrinkles are not a major concern of mine when it comes to the eye area – so I can’t really report if it works as dramatically on those issues.
