Stings my eyes

Every time I'd put this on, my eyes would start watering like crazy. Decided to stop using it. Must be too intense for me.

Sensitive eyes, BEWARE!
Sampled

I have heard great things about this brand and was really excited to try this eye cream. After the first night of use my eyes were a little itchy. By the time I got to work the following morning I could hardly see through my contacts. I had to drive back home and get my glasses to wear for the rest of the day and couldn't wear my contacts for a couple of days after use. I followed the packaging instructions and usually use another eye cream at night. It may be a great product but I certainly won't try using it again.

Sorry

I don't use this type of product. I don't know why they would put an anti-aging product in a box when so many young people get them.

Stivectin AR

I did not notice a difference. I used it twice a day, at morning and night, and I did not see the puffiness go down. I was not impressed.

Okay

This product was good quality, but I couldn't use it due to my sensitive skin. I would only recommend using this if you have tougher skin.

Caution for sensitive skin

Tried product and within 12 hours of use my eyes were swollen shut. After 3 days and doses of benadryl eyes are still puffy but tolerable. I have occasional sensitive skin issues (rarely a problem) and nothing has caused a reaction like this. Just a heads up.

I do not use products like this on my skin

This was a waste of a sample. I thought BirchBox was going off of our profiles. This is something that does not interest me and I have no need for it. Good thing my mom was interested in it. She loves it, but she also loves magic "lotions" that she thinks make her look younger and removes wrinkles.

To be fair, I hate eye creams

I just don't use anti-aging products. I use sun protection and stay hydrated, so whatever wrinkles happen are just going to stay happened. After applying this to my eye-area I managed to smear some into my eye which was an unpleasant occurrence.

It gave me an allergic reaction :(

I don't know if I'm allergic to one or more of the ingredients, I think it's the Retinol, but I put it on last night and I woke up with my under eyes really, really dry and irritated. I could swear it gave me winkles.
Just be very careful.
It could be my skin didn't like it, but be aware. I should have know better, you can't put whatever you get on your face specially around your eyes. :'(

strong

This is not the product for me. It's very strong and I have very sensitive skin. This is not something that I would use. It is very expensive also. This is not something that works fast. You would need to use it repeatedly.
