Most of the eye creams I have tried so far, either give me a milia or leave me with puffy eyes, so in my mind they were always too expensive and in my case useless and contra productive. I use most of the time olive oil to remove my eye makeup and the oil residue left was just enough to soothe and moisturizer my eye area. But lately, I really suffered from dry skin around the eyes, and about two months ago and decided to give an another eye cream go.
Having heard many good things about Dermalogica eye creams, I wanted to see it for myself and bought the Dermalogica - intensive eye repair.
From the Dermalogica Website:
intensive eye repair is an ultra-rich cream of skin-replenishing phytonutrients, antioxidant vitamins and soothing botanicals to help diminish dry lines. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.
How to use:
After cleansing, gently pat around the eye area, blending inward from the outer corner
Extra quick tip:
While you should always use gentle motions when applying product, this is especially true around the delicate and thin eye area. Never press heavily or pull the area when applying your eye product.

What I like about this eye cream is that:
absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy or migrate to eyes
doesn't clog my pores in my eye area and doesn't give me puffy eyes
it contains retinol, which is the only ingredient that helps reducing wrinkles, so the fine lines are almost gone
it has improved the dryness, my eyes feel soft and moisturized, and really look so fresh
it has improved the discoloration in my undereye circles
What I don’t like about it:
It is bit more on an expensive side but, you really don’t need that much eye cream so it will last for about two months with daily application.
It is quite heavy cream, for that reason I prefer to apply it before I go to bed at night instead of applying it in the morning.
I really love the eye cream, and recommend it to everyone with dry eye area and dark under eye circles. Will defiantly buy again! Have you ever tried any Dermalogica eye creams? What is the eye cream you swear buy?
