Beauty Review: Clinique All About Eyes?

As soon as I started noticing fine lines around my eyes I was on the hunt for the best eye cream. Not only for fine lines, but for one that would cure my puffy, tired looking eyes. I read tons of reviews on some of the top eye creams but the one that fit within my budget was Clinique All About Eyes. The reviews were mixed but mostly good so I took a chance.

The description promised to help all my aging woes but unfortunately it didn't satisfy all my needs. It's a great moisturizer for the eyes and I haven't seen a flake since I've been using it over 3 months ago. However, I don't feel it's made a noticeable difference in reducing my fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. The little 15 ml jar at $37 (CAD) is pretty steep, but a little does go a long way. There's still quite a lot of product left after a few months of use. But overall, it was just kind of "meh" to me. So continues my search for THE ultimate in eye creams! Any suggestions? What do you think of this eye cream? Love it? Hate it?

I felt the same way about this too.

glad I read this - this was on my list of eye creams to try, but I think I'll try one of the others instead. I'm on the same search, and just bought some eye creams from the drugstore that I'm going to test...all I can tell you now is Benefit Eye Con is not worth the money.

I got a sample of this with my clinique order. Its ok, nothing special stands out bout it, it moisturizes and that's about it. Though I'm starting to believe that the La Prairie sample I got did moisturize better and no lines were visible.

I think it's best for late teens to early twenties. It's basically a light moisturizer for eyes. A richer cream is needed for the lines.

I tried this and it worked ok... no miracles tho. It also made the skin around my eyes break out really badly. It was prob just a reaction with other makeup but i stopped using it immediately!

I've tried it before...i mainly needed the use for puffiness and dark circles. Overall, it didn't meet my needs. I am currently trying to one from Evian Affinity. Hope it works out

This one didn't work for me. For a cream is seemed to be lacking in the moisture department.

I Actually like this eye cream. I use it every morning and it definately makes a difference. I also got my mum some and she loves it. I guess it works better for some people than others. I brought mine half price here http://www.beautyparlor.co.uk as I don't think it is worth paying full price for! Love this blog!
