La Mer 'The Eye Balm Intense'
not only is this sooo overpriced, it is overrated. I didn't notice any difference in diminish of puffiness or lines, I've been using this product for over a year and I will never again buy it. Just because it is expensive, doesn't mean it is better. Honestly don't know how these products keep getting such high ratings. I guess people buy into fancy packaging and marketing.....like it did.
I absolutely love this eye cream. While the price tag is sometimes cost prohibitive for me, I buy it whenever I can afford the splurge. I really love the applicator tip, which is multi-purpose. It keeps the jar from getting full of germs from your hands, it's far gentler than using your fingers to apply it to the delicate under-eye skin, and it helps soothe the eyes with the cooling metal, helping with any puffiness. It's light enough to use during the day, and works well even with under eye concealer over it. At night I use it as a base layer, then use a heavier eye cream like Kiehl's Avocado on top of it for extra moisture. I noticed a definite improvement in fine lines, particularly on the outside corners and between the brows. The jar lasts about three months with twice daily use.
I am so highly sensitive as I have blepharitis and rosacea on one side of my face. I generally no longer use eye creams at all. I had some puffiness and crepeness and some sagging of the upper eye area and wanted something to smooth and cool it down a bit without irritating my eye. This seems to be working. It is very pleasant, very cooling and it does not irritate me at all. I think it is depuffing a tad, and smoothing a tad, I did find that the primer slipped around so I think I have to put this on and leave it for some time. I did find that somehow the eye makeup wouldn't stay put either, I may not be able to wear this on top in the morning, but that's ok, under the eye is just fine. I will still work with but as as long as it does not irritate and is so cooling, I wlll not expect miracles and just be happy it depuffs and cools!
