  1. Oh I’m definitely going to try this! i find it pretty hard to find a good eye cream. I liked Fresh Creme Ancienne but wanted to try something new. Next Sephora sale then!

    WOW, that is quite the endorsement! I am so going to try this out. I suffer from fluid retention under the eyes and is really puffy eyes. Eye bags are fat deposits which only surgery can remoe. You really have puffy eyes and it is hard to deal with and if this products works like you say I will be a repeat customer!

  3. Ooh I love the texture but even better that its had a real impact Jenny! Will keep a look out for this one xx

  4. Mica says:

    Even though it’s a little pricey it’s so good it works for you! I’ve heard so much nice things about Peter Roth but never tried anything from the brand yet, this sounds like it would be a good one to start with! :)

    Hope you are having a great weekend! We have a lot of rain which is very welcome, but we have still been able to get out and about :)

  6. The texture of this sounds really interesting. While I am not entirely well versed in all things eye cream, I don’t think I’ve ever come across a balm type cream before. I am not a huge fan of these, as I just don’t have the patience/memory for warming them up prior to use, but you’ve sold me on the lines issue, especially with the smile lines! These have just started popping up for me lately and two birds, one stone. Win, win!

  7. Naya says:

    This sounds like a wonderful new eye cream discovery! God knows, it is so hard to come across one that actually delivers results. Thank you Jenny for such a thorough review here. I will check this one out for sure xx


  8. Anne says:

    Sounds very promising, but I miss the Retinol that makes the Instytutum one stand out for me. That being said I am currently testing the Murad Retinol Eye Cream that I enjoy so far (has only been a week though, so too early to already tell).

      I forgot the Instytutum one had retinol! Since I use a retinol serum daily (either from PTR or Curology), I don’t feel as bad about not having it in my eye cream. Looking forward to your thoughts on the Murad one!

  9. Bash Harry says:

    I really need to get a new eye cream, and this one sounds amazing! The price though….

    with love,
    Hey Bash

    I have been looking for an eye cream that does something Jenny and I think this might be it. Thanks as always for such a detailed review.

    OMG I wish we were the same skin type, I have super dry skin. I would come to you for everything! Your review is insanely good and even more thorough. Seriously, girl standing applause. You gave me every single thing I wanted to know about. Well done!
    Seriously Impressed, thexglitterbox

  12. Wow better for you than the Insytutum Eye Cream. That’s impressive for sure. I like that it offers blue light protection as that concerns me even more than UV these days. I wish it does more dark circles though as that’s my primary eye issue.

    • Jenny says:

      The blue light protection is nice, and something I hope will start showing up in more eye creams! I’ve heard people having good results with the Drunk Elephant C-Tango for dark circles, haven’t tried it myself though!

  13. Gemma says:

    I NEED this in my life in a vat. It’s so rare to find eye creams that make a difference to bags, and under-eye circles so I so desparately need to try this. It sounds really lovely, and I need to try more from PTR. I just love your blog design too, I always mean to say it but I forget :D xx

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you Gemma! I agree, I feel like all eye creams promise a million things but I rarely find one that lives up to all the claims, and this one comes closest! Unfortunately my dark circles are genetics/lifestyle related so I doubt I’ll ever find a product for it ^_^;

  14. Jennifer says:

    You weren’t kidding when you said it had a lot of silicone! I try to avoid it when I can.

  15. Sold! Especially when the price is better on my wallet than Instytutum!
