For truly transformative results, follow with a layer of Algenist’s Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer: it helps seal in the active ingredients.

Birchbox Breakdown

The name says it all: this lush balm has everything you need to revive the delicate skin beneath your eyes. The biotech team behind Algenist created it to tackle dehydration, fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. The eye-opening secret? A patented microalgae compound, which spurs the cellular renewal process and works together with other proven anti-aging ingredients. You’ll see visible results in days, and over time you can expect to enjoy a more rested, youthful appearance.

How to Use

Apply morning and night to clean skin. Since the formula is extra-potent, you'll only need a pea-sized amount for both eyes. Scoop the balm onto clean fingertips and delicately tap around the under eye area until it is completely absorbed.

Hydrates

After 3 months of using this cream, I have yet to see noticeable evidence with undereye circle help BUT, consistent use of the cream does seem to help hydrate the delicate eye area, minimizing fine lines and puffiness. Also, a little goes a long way - I am only half way through the jar after 3 months of pretty consistent morning and evening application.

LOVE this product
Purchased

I am in my early 40s and have been searching for the perfect eye cream for years. Although I haven't found perfect, I found pretty close and that is this product. It doesn't completely get rid of the dark circles (what can?), it tackles the dehydration and fine lines well enough that I never let myself run out of this product. Seriously, nothing from this brand has disappointed me yet. It is worth a try!!!

My eyes say "ahhh"

My sister laughs at me when I use this and say "ahh", but it truly does feel that way. This product smells great (very light, fresh scent), moisturizes well without overdoing it (doesn't interfere with your eye makeup), and truly makes my eye area look and feel better. It is a bit expensive, but it lasts a really long time. I would recommend it to anyone!

So far so good
Purchased

I've only tried this product twice. So far what I know is it smells good, very little scent. And feels good on the skin. The packaging is very nice..looks good, clear instructions. The cost is high and am hoping it lives up to the price tag!

Great moisturizing cream!

I've been using this every night for the past few nights and it's GREAT for moisturizing the delicate eye area...my skin feels so soft afterwards!

My fav eye cream EVA

This is probably my 4th jar of the complete renewal eye balm and it's a great product. Very creamy and rich so it keeps the area around my eye very moisturized and I can honestly say it's helped reduce the fine lines around my eyes. I haven't noticed a change in the darkness of the bags under my eyes but I think that is just hereditary. There is little to no smell (I'm very sensitive to smells).

O.k.

This product is okay---I can't say I've noticed any of my wrinkles disappearing but it does make my skin feel moisturized. I've only been using the product for two weeks now so maybe I should give it some more time to see actual results. Verdict is still out!

Immediate Results

I've been using eye cream since college and I always sort of thought of it as something I was doing for myself for 10 years down the road. But, after using my samples of Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm I have totally changed my tune. My eyes are brighter, the skin underneath is firmer and tighter and my fine lines are literally nowhere in sight. I literally feel like this cream made a huge difference overnight. I will be purchasing the full size.

Can't really say that I've noticed immediate results. Still waiting, but it feels nice. We will see if any results in time.

I think it's workng

I have tried so many age fighting eye creams and think this one is my favorite. I'm 40 years young and have some fine lines, puffiness & dark circles. Honestly, I do see an improvement with the fine lines, just not with the puffiness or dark circles. I've been using this product now for about 4-6 months now. I'm still looking for that product that does it all.
