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.

Bad for people with sensitive dry skin under eye

I have very dry and sensitive skin under my eyes and on my face overall. After 5 seconds of applying this product it irritated my skin and left it red and burning. I would not recommend to those who have very sensitive/dry skin.

Disaster for eye area!

I am a 52 yo woman who is painstaking with my beauty and anti-aging regimen. My skin type is normal and I usually pass for 10 years younger. Accordingly, I was excited to try this product. What a mistake. I have broken out with little whiteheads under and at sides of eyes. It's horrible. I NEVER breakout and have always had great skin. I normally use a combination of pharmaceutical grade skin care lines along with some surprisingly effective OTC products and do about 4-15% TCA peels per year. I've never had such a bad result/reaction as with this product. Needless to say, my "free full size sample" of Strivectin from the last Birchbox is in the trash. I wish I could say what caused it, but all I can do is advise caution when using. I would give ZERO stars if possible.

Not for Sensitive Skin

I've tried this three times around my eyes and ended up with red, itchy eyes. I will keep to use on the backs of my hands or upper chest. My skin can be extra sensitive and rosacea-like so this may not be the result for everyone.

Expensive
Sampled

This product is out of my budget so I won't be able to try the full size of this product.
