    The cream to end all creams! DAMN I need some.
    I think you might want to shove a frozen tea spoon on your eyes and then rub in the cream for puffiness?
    Your reviews are so great because you talk about the ingredients and then what that ingredient does.
    I have never actually heard of this brand too! I learn so much!

    • Jenny says:

      That’s a good idea Kiri, though I have a feeling I’ll end up forgetting the spoon in the fridge, haha! So glad you like the reviews, always happy to share new brands and products with you guys!

  3. So well written, Jenny! I am currently testing an exact same product and although I have a slightly different experience, I am so happy to hear that it worked for you. I am convinced many readers will find this article incredibly helpful. P.S. (I have terrible dark circles and have yet to find a cream that can fix it).

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you Naya! Aw no, sorry to hear that you’re not getting the same experience :( I’m curious to read your thoughts on this though!

    Thanks so much for this briliant review. I have heard of this but have not used this eye cream. I haven’t found a holygrail eye cream but I have a few favourites. This is a pretty good rating, I just wish it was more travel-friendly., packaging-wise. <3 /Madison

    • Jenny says:

      So glad you liked it! I agree, the packaging is beautiful on a vanity but not very hygienic or travel friendly, but the results are worth it for me ☺️

    This sounds amazing, and fab review as always! It definitely seems like the pros outweigh the negatives xx

    Great review, Jenny! My eye area is one of my trouble spots! I suffer from dark circles and fine lines. Love the sound of this cream. Anything with peptides and Vitamin C has got my attention. I’ve added it to my list of things to try!

    I think the pros outweighs the cons. Thanks for sharing your review on this. I hope I can find this somewhere online in the Philippines because I sure do want to give it a try. :)


  8. The result’s you’ve experienced with this eye cream sound amazing and the ingredients in the formulation are certainly favorable. The only thing that would keep me from purchasing it is the jar packaging. I made a vow to give up eye creams in jars earlier this year and I’m trying hard to stick to it. I’m currently testing a few products from Instytutum and so far so good. I get why you love their Triple Peel now Jenny :)

    • Jenny says:

      I’m not a fan of jar packaging either, so I can see why you’d want to avoid it :( It’s interesting because most eye creams come in tubes, so hopefully Instytutum adjusts this in the future! Glad to hear that you like the Instytutum products you’re trying, can’t wait to read your thoughts on them!

  9. This sounds like a really good product! I want to start using anti-aging products to help combat the fine lines that I know are already forming LOL. Although this isn’t 100% natural I may have to suck it up and give it a go (I don’t think there’s too many natural brands that really have anti-aging creams?)

    • Jenny says:

      Hmm, that’s a good point, I don’t think I’ve really seen many all-natural anti-aging products either now that you mention it. The full ingredient list is on CosDNA and other than the preservatives (which I consider a necessary evil), I think overall the ingredients are pretty clean :)

  10. Emily says:

    Daaang. This sounds great! I am totally sold because of this review haha. I know you don’t too often give these high scores, so to have a 9.3 is fabulous! I feel like eye creams are always so iffy too. Most claim all these crazy things, but then under perform. OR, you cannot wear them under makeup. This one sounds amazing!


    • Jenny says:

      Yeah, I try to really save the 9+ ratings for products that have blown me away, and this one definitely did! I agree with you on eye creams, and it’s extra annoying because they’re so darn expensive as well – at least this one is worth every pretty penny!

  11. Veron says:

    I actually need a good eye cream, starting to worry about fine lines now. Geez, I’m only 23. Haha. And you gave it such a great rating!

    • Jenny says:

      It’s never too early to start an anti-aging routine, and honestly I wish I started mine when I was 23! This is a great option as it’s not overly rich or oily!

  12. Kasie says:

    Wow, that is quite a high rating for an eye cream! I’m always on the hunt for a fabulous new product and this one fits the bill. Thank you for sharing!

  13. Sam Hodgett says:

    Oh my this looks so good.. Though I also need something that helps with puffiness considering my over consumption of salt on the daily ( but I have accepted that my dark circles will never go away :( ) I’ll definitely be tempted to give this a try once my current eye cream is out

    • Jenny says:

      Can’t recommend this enough! I’m going to try massaging my eyes with a cold jade roller per @camilladesigns:disqus’s suggestion and see if it helps with the puffiness :)

  14. says:

    O it sounds so good! Too bad that it didn’t do anything for your dark circles though.

    • Jenny says:

      This would be a 10/10 if it did! I’m not too disappointed though, hopefully with massaging and more sleep the dark circles will get better!

  15. This eye cream seems legit. I need to get my hands on this!

    I’m trying this out right now so I’m excited to see if I love it as much!

    Oh gosh. It sounds amazing. The blurring effect is so visible so thanks for that demo. Its just the small matter of price tag now..haha! xxx

  18. Sam says:

    I’m usually not into eye creams myself, but I’ve been trying to help my dad find one that will work for him! Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a problem with fine lines so much as the puffiness and bags, but it’s great that this ended up working so well for you!

    • Jenny says:

      From reading comments from fellow bloggers I’m starting to think that massaging with something cool like a jade roller might work better for puffiness. I plan on incorporating it to my routine to see how well it’ll work :)

  19. Shireen says:

    Anne likes this eye cream a hell lot too and it’s already in my list to buy! After this glowing review from you, I will definitely be buying it!

  20. I will have to try this eye cream. Do you feel it’s hydrating as well? I have dry skin. I currently love Kiehl’s Avocado. I love Anne’s in-depth reviews.

    • Jenny says:

      I would say it’s hydrating, but I do layer a hydrating serum + facial oil under the eye cream as part of my standard routine, so I’m sure that helps increase the overall hydration of my eye area. If you like the Kiehl’s one, you’ll probably like this just as much, if not more :)

  21. OMG, now I want this eye cream. I am using their lifting cream and serum and I am so in love with them. Also started using the Flawless pads and they’re amazing too. Thanks for sharing hun! x

    • Jenny says:

      Ah I want to try their serum, I heard that was amazing as well! Honestly it’s incredible to see a brand release consistently impressive products!

  22. That claim is so true! It still is my holy grail eye cream, and after I have run out of it and started using another one I do miss it so much it only confirms that.

  23. Camilla says:

    Those ingredients sound right up my alley! As for the puffiness, have you tried a jade roller yet? I feel like my face in general is less puffy after I roll it around (I don’t know if I’m doing it right, but it feels good) and it seems to get my circulation flowing!

    • Jenny says:

      I haven’t tried a jade roller but I’ve been meaning to add one to my routine! Do you have a particular seller/retailer you recommend? There seems to be a lot of options on Amazon but some of the reviews said they broke after one use! D:
