Review: Aveeno Positively Ageless Lifting and Firming Eye Cream9:06 AM
Another member of the Aveeno Positively Ageless line, the Lifting and Firming Eye Cream targets the often hard to treat areas of the skin around the eye.
A moisturizing eye cream that works with your skin and is clinically shown to visibly lift and firm skin around the eyes, brighten the appearance of skin around the eyes and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
I'm going to start out with the packaging. This eye cream comes in a small pump action bottle. I love this! I absolutely hate having to dip my fingers into a pot, especially smaller one, to try and dig out product. Not only does it get stuck under my nails, but I feel like I waste the product because I end up getting more than I need, particularly with a product like this. A little goes a long way.
The product itself is thick and rich, but absorbs very quickly into the area under the eye. It has a hint of fragrance, but again, it's natural and refreshing. Unlike some eye creams I've tested in the past, this does not make my eyes sting or get irritated. Because it absorbs so quickly in the skin, I don't have any issues with it affecting the lasting power of my foundation, concealer, nor does it cause any smudging or running of my eyeliners or mascara - believe it or not, I've found that some products will promote this because of a residue that is left behind.Below are a couple of images of the product, along side the Positively Ageless Youth Perfecting Moisturizer, which I will discuss tomorrow. Hopefully the pictures help show the consistency a bit better with my descriptions above.
Pumped out of the bottle.
Swiped into the skin.
So far I've been using this for 3 weeks alongside the Aveeno Positively Ageless Daily Exfoliating Cleanser and I am now starting to see the long-term results. Upon immediate use, the skin around my eyes is moisturized, less crepe-y, and I have seen the puffiness reduced. After constant use, the fine lines have diminished, as have the dark circles under my eyes. I couldn't be happier with the results. One of my biggest frustrations with my skin is the dark circles under my eyes. I know it's not exactly the skin per say, but there are a lot of products that claim to diminish these circles and I have not had nearly the positive results with them as I have with the Aveeno. Compared to some of the pricier eye creams I've used in the past, I would put this up against them at half the price.
Bottom line, would I buy this again for the $15.99 price? Absolutely. Like I said, I've tried numerous other products, some less expensive and definitely those more expensive, but this is one I can actually see the results after use.
So far, I'm very impressed with the new Aveeno line. What about you? Have you tried any of the new products?
