I was given the opportunity to use and review the Avalon Organics Essential Lift Contouring Eye Crème
($25.95). I used it two times a day for 12 weeks. My results were less than stellar. In fact, I can’t say I noticed any difference or changes in the skin around my eyes. I am including before and after pictures (below) for people to make their own conclusions. I am also going to apologize for my big scary eye on your screen. (Warning - please do not look at these photos before ingesting at least one cup of coffee. I am not responsible for any nightmares of giant eyes! Sorry folks, there was just no pretty way of doing this.)
I have mature 42-year-old skin. My heritage is Dutch/Scottish. I am prone to freckles and age spots (yuck). The issues I hoped to address are listed below. I also have problems with loss of fat under my eyes, but I wouldn’t expect any eye cream to tackle that problem.
Wrinkles/crow’s feet = no change
Under-eye circles = no change
Eyelid crepiness = no change
This eye cream did make a nice base for my makeup, and I started using it all over my face for this purpose. It has a light texture and is not greasy. The eye cream is also lightly scented. However, this scent quickly dissipated once the cream was applied to my skin. If you’re just looking for a moisturizer for the skin around your eyes, this will work. But if you’re like me and need much more help, this product is not going to provide that level of service. My conclusion is that this is not a product I will be buying with my own money.
