This eye balm really doesn’t do much but I like it. OK, some background information. I have pretty normal skin that goes a little dry in the winter. I am young, mid-20’s, so it isn’t like I am combating deep lines. I really just like the idea of preventive care. I get really dry, even around the eyes in the winter. This is just a basic, rich but quick absorbing odorless eye cream. I love to use this at night. It is so smooth so it doesn’t tug the eye area. It combats lines, just those caused by harsh and dry climates. A little bit goes a long way. It hasn’t irritated my eyes or migrated into other areas since it absorbs so quickly. It is cheap too at $30. As you know, eye creams aren’t so cheap. Of course, this really doesn’t do much either… Anyways, I really recommend this for those living in extreme climates and those with dry skin. If you have serious “eye issues”, don’t use this. Go for something with an acid or something. But, if you do have serious “eye issues” this would work wonderfully mixed with concealer for the undereye area. It would keep things from settling in the creases and from tugging away at the delicate eye area. It’s a gentle cream, I like it but I know that our relationship will only last a few years before I have to move on to bigger and better creams for the eye area 😦 It is available at DERMAdoctor.

Seriously, I am. It gives me an instant “lift”, if only they made bras… Anyways, I am a sucker for “brightening” products. My skin can never look too glowy in my opinion. So that was my initial attraction to this product. I usually don’t like concealers with brushes. They tend to get goopy and I don’t use the brush tip anyways. I didn’t let this keep me from this product. I still twist it up and put it on the back of my hand and use my fingers. I like how the heat from my fingers “melts” the product into my skin. This stuff looks so seamless on me. No creepy lines, no dark circles. It is amazing. And like most Prescriptives products it comes in a lot of colors. I love this stuff because it makes my eye area feel “tight”. I know that sounds uncomfortable but it isn’t. I feel awake and like I just used a caffeine gel under my eyes. This stuff claims to firm skin and minimize the appearance of lines. I really do believe that it has. It is like an eye cream and a concealer in one. It is said that 84% of women noticed an improvement with it. Count me as one too. I get less sleep but look more awake. I have no complaints with this product. It is long wearing, water-resistant ( a big plus when in the rainy Seattle weather), it covers nicely and never is drying. I can deal with the brush when a product is this fab. Plus, level 2 warm matches my skin perfectly. I love this stuff. It retails for $22 and is available at most department stores and nordstrom.com.
