Today I will tell you all about eyes from Clinique. Clinique tells us;
“This lightweight eye cream diminishes the appearance of puffs, undereye circles.”
How is this in reality and how did I come up with using this eye cream?
When I was shopping at Douglas in Utrecht, the Netherlands, I got this eye cream as a tester. I tried it out back in Sweden since I have a lot of eczeem usually around my eyes. It comes and goes. I tried a lot of creams and usually they help a bit, but then it gets worse again. This has been going on for a period of 2-3 years. Usually my skin around my eyes is sensitive to cold and dry air. The air is pretty cold and dry in Sweden, so that doesn’t help. The GP here gave me different medical creams with chemicals, which I hate to use, but even that didn’t help. I accepted the fact that the skin is dry, red and even itchy sometimes. I didn’t want to use so many eye creams, because I was afraid to make the redness even worse. I was afraid that eye creams could maybe cause allergic reactions to my eye skin. I’ve tried a lot of brands.
About the under eye circles and puffiness; I really feel better using this cream, but I can’t say that my dark color under my eyes disappeared. There was a slight improvement however. I see this difference also when I use other eye creams. So it does what it promises.
Then I tried the tester of Clinique and the dryness and red skin became less. First I thought it was a coincidence, like I said, sometimes it’s less and sometimes it’s worse. I applied the cream twice a day on my eye area and eye lids too. Then when the tester was finished after 2 weeks or so, I stopped using it. The redness was pretty much gone, my skin looked hydrated and then I thought it would stay like that when I would stop this cream.
What happened when I stopped using it?
The redness and dry skin came back after about 5-7 days because I stopped using All about eyes from Clinique. I was a little bit disappointed that it came back. At the same time, I was happy that I found the solution to my eye skin problem; applying this cream two times a day.
I decided to buy the All about eyes cream from Clinique. Then I applied it again and even faster this time, after about three days, the redness and dryness went away. I’m using this eye cream every day and night, which is really light and feels more like a gel. It’s absorbed really fast by my eye skin. It does not make my make-up fade away or anything. It’s a really good base in that way for eye make up. On top of the eye cream I usually apply concealer. When I don’t apply an eye cream first, the concealer gets dry and starts to go into my fine lines around my eyes.
The eye skin doesn’t get oily after applying. You don’t feel the cream coming into your eyes. You won’t get sticky lashes, like you would get when applying a very oily cream (which you might do when you’re skin is so dry and irritated).
I can really recommend this eye cream, especially if you have redness and/or dry (itchy) skin around your eyes and you don’t want to use medical creams from the pharmacy. The cream is really affordable and costs about $32 / 30 Euro / 345 SEK (depends where you live and where you buy it, online or not).
Are you using an eye cream and what is your favorite?
Would you try All about eyes cream if you had redness and dry skin?
