This is one of the few products I actually repurchase. This is my second tube, but for some reason, it worked better the first time.

I first discovered this eye cream after reading an article in Allure magazine years ago, reportedly Oscar winning actress Hilary Swank swore by it to tone down puffy eyes after partying all night. The first time I used this was two years ago, and it worked wonders for my occasional puffy eyelids (from allergies).

I bought this again at the beginning of Spring when my allergies were at their worst. Surprisingly, it irritated my eyes so much so that they puffed up more because of this eye cream! It stung and made my eyes rather itchy. I had isolated the eye cream by discontinuing use and the reaction went away. When I reintroduced it back into my routine after a few weeks, my eyes got irritated again. I don’t know if it’s the rosemary leaf oil that stings. Two years ago, it refreshed my eyes and felt cool on my puffy lids; but now, it just burns.

Unfortunately, I will not be repurchasing this again. It might work for someone who doesn’t have sensitive eyes; but for my very sensitive eyes, this did more harm than good.
