It’s this stuff that saves my eye wrinkles…
My age: 22 My skin tone: light My skin type: dry skin with oily T-zone Major eye concern: fine lines, dark circles Eyes are the most obvious signs of your age. Though you have used expensive skin care products on your face, the fine lines around your eyes reveal your age. That’s why I always care much about my eye care. Last month, I suddenly found many fine lines around my eye corner, and dark circles are always my major concern, so I started to look for great eye cream. Then I found this baby. Intro to Elixir Enriched Wrinkle Cream I got to hear about Elixir when I traveled to Japan last year. It’s an anti-aging skincare brand under SHISEIDO, with 13 years of No.1 sales in Japan. I found some good reviews on Instagram about this enriched wrinkle cream, so I bought one on Amazon. It cost me $69, which is rather expensive. Its main target is to anti wrinkles around your eyes and to provide firmness. The main ingredient is retinol, which creates hyaluronic acid and leads to the flexible skin by increasing moisture content and improves skin. Using feelings You can see from the pics I attached, the cream is light yellow and it has a flower scent, which seize my heart. It’s has mild nature, non-greasy at all and it’s very blendable. It can quickly attach onto the skin with favorable feeling. It absorbs very easily. I can feel it constantly moisturize my eye area and make it soft, refreshing and moist. I prefer to use it only at night, after my skincare routine and apply it under eye area, around the eye corner and onto the eyelids. The Effects The effect is amazing!!! I obviously find my fine lines get smooth, there’re no new wrinkles around the eye corner and the obvious lines are disappearing. Additionally, my dark circles are greatly improved (I’ve been troubled by dark circles since my secondary school). I think it does help me fighting with aging and wrinkles. Do I recommend? Definitely highly recommended! I rate this stuff 5 stars. Although it’s a little costly, it’s 100% worth the money! It’s definitely my must-repurchase.

Budget Eye Cream for 20s‼️‼️
ABOUT ME: Combination Oil Skin，sensitive skin around eye，prone to have fat granule. Recently I noticed that the fine lines around my eyes have become more and more visible, especially when I am smiling. I was so anxious that I begin to search various eye creams! I have not tried any eye cream products before, so I will be more hesitant when choosing a product. I am worried that too much nutrition will cause fat particles, or make my eyes feel burning feeling. This concerns come from online feedback : ) This ELIXIR eye cream was recommended by my friend. She has sensitive skin around her eyes and has tried many products which make her uncomfortable, but ELIXIR seems to be no problem. With the mentality of trying it out, I used it for more than two weeks. Although I didn't see much effect, I can share with you the experience of using the product. TEXTURE It has a light yellow creamy texture with high moisture content, so it is easy to smear. In the first few days of use, I felt a bit hot on the eye area, but recently this feeling has disappeared. Very comfortable. How to use Pat the eye area in a circular motion with fingertips until it disappears completely. Taste Without any fragrance Although it has only been used for more than two weeks, I am very confident in this product. It has a light yellow creamy texture with high moisture content, so it is easy to smear. In the first few days of use, I felt a bit hot on the eye area, but recently this feeling has disappeared. Very comfortable. ELIXIR - Enriched Wrinkle Cream
You get what you pay off, Really?!💰💰 Retinol Dupe Alert!👍
I have always felt that my skin is typical of oily skin, and the most important skincare goal is to control oil. But recently winter is coming, and the weather is getting drier and drier. Suddenly, I noticed that the skin around my eyes was very dry, and there were faint fine lines around my eyes. I know I need to use anti-aging products. Retinol is a very effective anti-aging ingredient. It exists in many skincare products and has a strong effect on fine lines. Elixir Enriched Wrinkle Cream $86 ELIXIR - Enriched Wrinkle Cream OLAY PROX DEEP WRINKLE TREATMENT DERMATOLOGICAL ANTI-AGING $40 #OLAY - PROX DEEP WRINKLE TREATMENT DERMATOLOGICAL ANTI-AGING [products]#[FiveStars] Elixir eye cream is a product that I like very much. It is an exceptional anti-aging rich cream as a result of many years of research and development. In this product, the most effective component is "Active Pure Retinol", which promotes the production of hyaluronic acid, and hyaluronic acid increases the moisture content within the skin, making the skin soft. This helps the skin to turn over, thus improving the wrinkled skin. The price of this eye cream is less than half of that of the previous product. As a famous eye cream of OLAY, this treatment is formulated with a potent blend of amino peptides, niacinamide (vitamin B 3), and pro-retinol with 0% added fragrance, fortifying the stratum corneum and boosting surface cell turnover for younger-looking skin. OLAY's products can be used as DUPE of Elixir eye cream because, in terms of ingredients, retinol is the effective ingredient of both. From the price point of view, OLAY has a great advantage. Therefore, if you are still a student at school, you can choose OLAY, which is very cost-effective. In terms of ingredients, if you have a high demand for anti-aging, then I suggest you choose the expensive eye cream because the concentration of retinol in Elixir is high.
My skincare awards: eye creams
Dark circles have been a part of my life since university and I always look for creams that help me reduce them. 🥇sesderma - C-VIT Eye Contour Cream $36 As I said before, this is one of the eye creams that has given me the best results. I tried it thanks to some samples that my dermatologist gave me. It is a lightweight cream that absorbs quickly, smells like orange. Helps decrease the dark circles, reduce wrinkles and hydrate. It can be used day and night. Currently I don't use it because it expired and I have others that I was waiting to try, but I used it for about a year. I will definitely buy it again and recommend it, I could say this is my favorite. 🥈 .INC. - De-Puffing Under Eye Jade Roller $15 A de-puffing under eye formula with antioxidants with jade rollerball applicator. Helps protect from blue light damage by improving the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Its main ingredient: snow mushroom. I love the jade applicator, it refreshes the eye area. It has worked well for me so far. Smells good and its texture is liquid and absorbs quickly without leaving it sticky. I keep mine in the fridge. I would highly recommend it for those who have puffiness since the massage with the jade rollerball helps to drain. 🥉CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream $13.99 Contains 3 essential ceramides to repair and strengthen the protective barrier of the skin. It is ideal for dark circles and puffiness. It can be used AM and PM. It has no aroma. Its main ingredients are ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. Its texture is creamy. I have been using it for a week and so far I have liked it. Leaves the eye area hydrated, absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling. It is the cheapest of the three. This time the three are very good options and it will depend on how you feel each one of them so you can choose the one you like the most. Until now I would definitely continue to buy Sesderma - C VIT and I will continue to test the Cera-Ve because I have seen many positive reviews here in the Cherie app.

Eye Cream that’s Not BS
I have spent years trying every eye cream and serum at every price point, searching for one that would put a noticeable dent in my dark circles, emerging crows feet, and defined creases under my lash lines. Nothing seemed to work, not even kind of. When I asked my dermatologist if all eye creams were just bullshit she laughed and said yes, they’re mostly just over priced moisturizer... except for the one she personally uses: A.G.E. Eye Complex by SkinCeuticals. Naturally I picked some up to try, excited to claim that yet another eye cream was a disappointment. Y’all. On the first day of use, I noticed my dark circles had diminished slightly. By two weeks, they had faded to a point where I no longer needed concealer to cover them up, just a little matte powder. My second problem area, wrinkles, also seemed to have leveled out a bit. While not totally gone, they seem to be almost airbrushed out at the edges and my defined crease has lost a little length at the ends. Can’t wait to see how this continues to progress. As a side benefit, wherever this spread down onto my cheeks the pores seem to have tightened up a bit. Also, my eyelids which are just starting to get a bit crepe-y seemed to tighten up a bit as well! True to SkinCeuticals form, this luxy textured, noticeably effective cream is not for the faint of wallet. But if you’re looking for something that actually does what it says it does, it’s worth a try! It made a believer out of me! Official verdict: not bullshit!

Eye 👁 Creams [dark circles and fine lines]
👁Eye background: I have genetic dark circles, and a newborn son so between the dark circles and lines from lack of sleep my eyes were 😱. (L👉🏽R) 👁BURT’S BEES - Renewal Firming Eye Cream this is a retinol alternative based eye cream. The alternative ingredient is called Bakuchiol, and it’s very helpful helpful to my sensitive under eyes. It’s also 99% natural, no: parabens, protalatum, or SLS. The only reason I have this eye cream 4/5 ⭐️ is because it’s $19.99 for a 0.5 OZ. It lasted me about 3 months though but still 👁DUFT & DOFT - Salmon Vgene Hydro Active Eye Cream I got this in one of my IPSY bags and honestly I really like it. Only downside is it does have salmon egg extract (for my vegan people). Other than that it’s packed with niacinamde, hyaluronic acid, and adenosine (anti-wrinkle). I wouldn’t probably buy this again, but I must admit I used it for two weeks straight during the day and I actually saw some difference . $16 for 0.9 OZ. fARSÁLI - Haldi Eyes this eye cream is amazing. It has turmeric & caffeine (& daisy extract for brightening the eye). It’s clean, vegan, & cruelty free. I usually use this under my makeup because it’s so hydrating or when I need a super pick me up. Why ? Because it’s $40 (I know) BUT you get 15ML (.5 FL OZ) in a jar not a pump so you control how much you use. I’m definitely buying this again 😭 TULA SKINCARE - Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm I got this in my GLAMBAG and I’m happy because I most likely won’t purchase this again. So since I have sensitive under eyes the “cooling” effect bothers the freak out of my eyes! It’s like putting mint under there. The second reason is being a WOC the white cast it leaves on my eyes is hard to get off/blend. It’s like a glue stick you just rub under eyes which I don’t prefer anyways because applying products to your skin compromises the product. It does have probiotics, caffeine, clean & cruelty free. It’s just not for me. It’s $28 for .35 CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream I used this during the day for ONE WEEK & saw the best results out of any eye cream honestly. It has niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, ceramides (lipid that protects the skin from irritants & locks moisture in) & it’s non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), hypo-allergenic & fragrance free (if that kinda thing bothers you). It’s $10.77 for 0.5oz and I will always have this product in my skincare bag. Overall all I say I would need is the CERAVE & FARSALI Let me know what you use !? 👇🏽

Fine lines enemy🥳Eye cream No.1 reward!
ABOUT ME：Combination dry skin, fine line around eyes. Easy to get fat particles. Getting an eye cream is not a difficult task but finding your eye cream can be a challenge journey. My skin around eyes is very sensitive. No matter they are European or American brands like LAMER or KIEHL's or Asian brands like SKII or CPB, each product has caused fat particles. When I use each of them twice, my eyes will appear “fresh fat particles” in the third morning. That is ridiculous, but it actually happens. So I didn’t use an eye product even over half month before. This eye product from ELIXIR is the only brand that currently hasn’t produced skin problems around my eyes. I truly enjoy the benefits of retinol. Have been using it for 4 weeks, I could tell that it does help my fine line. Expecting to see the solve in 9 weeks! ✨✨INGREDIENT： With two series to choose from, you can guarantee a match to your eyes’ skin. Here I bought is golden packaging, which is effective to reduce wrinkle. There is also a type with silver packaging, which adds a whitening effect. This product contains high purity active retinol, which acts on epidermal keratinocytes and reduces wrinkles that have formed. ATTENTION! This product is to reduce old wrinkles not for anti-wrinkle effect. This ingredient will be decomposed by temperature and oxygen. So the packaging of this product is very unique, the air outside is not able to get into the product inside. ✨✨TEXTURE：This product can be used not only as an eye cream but also as a facial wrinkle cream. The first time I used ELIXIR, the texture felt less like an eye cream and more like a lotion. It's very moist and not greasy. The scent makes people feel pleasant. I don't have visible facial wrinkling, but under my eyes there are many fine and dry lines. After I use it for about a month, the fine lines are really toned down! Most of all, I am really surprised to see that no fat particles appear. ✨✨VALUE：This product is more suitable for 25+. It only has the effect of wrinkle removal. Effects as brightening, fading black circles and removing edema have no. But I think this product has the highest cost performance among other eye products. It sells for $86 of $15g. I am really satisfied that it can have this kind of excellent effect with a price under $100. ✨✨HOW I USE：Because everyone reacts differently to ingredient of retinol. If you are sensitive skin, first use frequency should be 2-3 days once, the period is two weeks. I have A friend who is allergic to retinol. When she first used it, skin around her eyes turned red. But she gradually got used to it after two weeks’ trial. So you have to be careful when you use it. In addition, this product should be massaged from the end of the eye to the front. 🔥TIP：DON’T USE IT ON A.M. ❤️FINALLY, I GIVE THIS PRODUCT RATE 9/10. ELIXIR - Enriched Wrinkle Cream

25 day difference for my dark circles 😱😱
I’ve never been an eye cream gal. Even tho I’ve always had dark circles, it seemed like eye cream was just another step that didn’t do much. Then there was GEORGETTE KLINGER - Sea Extracts Eye Cream My under eyes are bit deep set (a little deeper than my cheek bones which casts a shadow), so there’s only so much a cream will do for me, which is also why I didn’t really get into eye creams. They’ve always been meh. Happy to have found a good one!!! According to the site this eye cream... Replenishes and renews skin for younger healthier tone and texture Defends and repairs skin and combats daily stress and damage Promotes cell turnover and skin renewal to diminish fine lines and wrinkles for visibly younger contours The main ingredients that do this are red marine algae, wheat gluten, and plankton extract. I was gifted this and thought nothing of it, but after a month of steady use (at least 1x a day) I’m happy to see my dark circles taking a back seat. This eye cream is very unassuming at first application—goes on like any other eye cream. But the proof (at least for me) is in the pudding. Note: Now I know the lighting in both photos are also a bit different BUT I really do have brighter under eyes IRL !! What is your holy grail eye cream?
GEORGETTE KLINGER-Sea Extracts Eye Cream
BYE BYE DARK CIRCLES!👋🏽
I don’t know what it is but Ole Henriksen is holding it down with this eye cream! Who else is fighting a constant battle with their dark circles? Well I certainly am! But say no more, this magic in a pot has saved my eyes...LITERALLY! It has faded the dark circles underneath my eyes and instantly brightens the area. Not to mention, this stuff slays your eyes before makeup, leaving your eyes radiant and hydrated!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
