Product Review: Clinique All About Eyes Rich

Clinique All About Eyes Rich, 0.5 oz. US$29/CAD$37

This is one of the most highly recommended and best reviewed eye creams on the market. It has mostly positive reviews; and because I have really sensitive eyes and don’t like fragranced eye products, I opted for this after my Yonka Phyto Contour ran out.

I have been using this for about a month. Though it claims to lessen dark circles, I didn’t see any improvement on that front, though nothing I used really does anyway. The texture of this is a very nice, non greasy cream (I have very dry eyes) that absorbs very quickly. It hydrates deeply and my eyes did not burn, sting or get irritated.

I have never been a big fan of Clinique, but this eye cream is excellent. It has depuffing properties (on my lids) on days my allergies are bad; it doesn’t sting like Yonka does. It just softly soothes and comforts my very dry and sensitive eye area.

I have tested the regular version and found this rich version to be a lot better for my eyes by the way. This rich version never gave me milia and so far, my eyes really love this cream. My eyes look softer, though I don’t have lines yet so I can’t say whether the cream did anything for wrinkles around the eyes. I use this even under eye makeup and I don’t find that greasy at all, though I usually dust a thin layer of powder on my lids to keep the eye makeup kaput for the day.

Usually I do take my own product pictures, but I am pressed for time so I just use Clinique’s official product picture for this product. It’s one of the best I have used, and a definite repurchase for me!

Rating: 4 stars out of 5. (I am picky! But this comes close as an HG eye cream for me) One star removed because the price discrepancy in Canadian dollars is ridiculous considering our dollar is close to parity with the USD.

    I like this eye cream too but it probably good for those in 20s, I certainly need extra for those dynamic lines under eyes. (“v)

    I love this. Moisture is the most important thing for any age – you have enough of it in your 20s and you will be in a better place when you hit your 30s and so on.

    The thing is, no cream is going to reverse your lines. Any eye cream or wrinkle cream that claims to do so can only claim to ‘lessen the appearance of’ them, and not actually get rid of lines and wrinkles. The most they can do is soften the lines. Nothing short of a medical procedure can get rid of those lines – sorry! That’s why you have all these people perpetually searching for the ‘it’ eye cream to get rid of dark circles, lines, etc. but I am sorry to tell you it just doesn’t exist.

      Sadly I have to agree with you. I have yet to find an eye cream that does what it claims, especially when it comes to lines, circles and bags.

    Joseibi, I have the same problem of dark eye circles which happen with bad nights of sleep. Most of the ey creams out on the market, even Korean brands like Tony Moly, don’t really help much, and in fact, I find them to be more of hydrating creams at best. The best that I have used up to date is still the Brightening Eye Serum from Skinfood, but it is hard to find outside of Korea at a cheap price. This Clinique All About Eyes: Rich is actually quite good as far as I recall from a sample set which I got off Sephora New York City when I was travelling there in 2008(back in those days when I still did some modelling on the side), and in fact it was way better than the Moisture Surge Gel which was overrated for facial skin.
