Review by: Marta
Amarte is a Korean beauty brand that recently completely overhauled its products under the guidance of an American dermatologist, Dr. Craig Kraffert. The collaboration of two cultures, West and East, as well the brand’s symbolism – Amarte translates literally as “to love you” and the company’s motto is “love yourself, love your skin” – had me intrigued enough to try the Eyeconic Eye Cream. And I am very glad I did.

Part of the lure of Eyeconic Eye Cream was that it features an ingredient that I am typically wary of and that I have never, ever used in an eye cream: retinol. Generally, I find it too harsh and drying. I am concerned about its propensity to thin the skin with overuse and make it more vulnerable to the sun. And here it is at a 3.8% concentration, no less.

Epidermal growth factor also takes center stage in Amarte Eyeconic. Growth factors, particularly human derived as this one is, are one of the major breakthroughs in topical skincare, and I have had good results with many growth factor (or stem cell) serums. However, I did some recent research into combining glycolic acid and growth factors in your skincare regimen and concluded that this should be avoided as the glycolic may slow down the efficacy of the EGF. Retinol, an exfoliant by any other name, could do the same.

Now, here the EGF is nano-encapsulated. I am guessing that this makes the EGF more stable and efficient at penetrating the skin. In any event, Eyeconic wasn’t at all irritating or drying and my six-week test has left my eye area, especially under and outer, looking smoother and more hydrated.

Overall, the formula seems to be well-balanced with a base of moisturizing glycerin and argan oil. Elemental sulfur is a pH balancer. The botanical extracts include ginkgo biloba nut, which has high levels of quercetin, a common and powerful antioxidant. Nutmeg is an antioxidant due to an abundance of myristicin. Useless aside: the hallucinogenic effects of an over-indulgence of nutmeg are due to myristicin.

There are the usual suspects in the preservative department (phenoxyethanol and disodium EDTA), which is a shame since they put purists off to what is otherwise a great-performing eye cream (and there is grapefruit seed and clove, both of which serve as antimicrobacterials). Still, if you have been looking for an eye cream with retinol and growth factors, Eyeconic is it. And with positive reviews for Amarte Hydrolift Cream by Cristina (with impressive before and afters) and Aqua Veil Hydrator by Kathy, Amarte is looking as if East is meeting West.

Our Take...

I'm game for trying any new product and those for the eyes are probably my favorite, but I was especially happy to try out Amarte Eyeconic Eye Cream ($80 in shop) as it already has Marta's stamp of approval.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I've waited to write a review of this product because I wanted to see how my under-eye puffiness responded to a new daytime eye regimen (I know that retinol products are supposed to be used at night), free of any prior eye care products I've used in the past.

    Well, five stars to this light, nonirritating eye treatment. I do not ever use it alone, but layer Sciote's Vitamin C eye treatment underneath and the Sciote Peptide + Defense Firming Eye Cream over the Amarte Eyeconic Eye Cream. It may sound like I'm layering a LOT of product onto my eye area (daytime), but I've found for myself, that after 32+ years of working in zero percent, sixty degree operating rooms & other hospital locales and then emerging into almost 98-100% humidity can wreak havoc on one's skin and eye areas after decades of environmental stress such as this. Working anywhere from 10-12 hrs up to 36-48 hrs (and more) at a stretch, arriving in the morning dark and leaving in the same is DEFINITELY not a healthy way to maintain skin, eye, or physical health!! The eye area, which tends to be more fragile than other parts of the face, has in my case, taken the greatest 'beating' of all.

    I am happy to report that I am finally weaning myself off of daily use of high percentage retinol products (I am NEARING 60--but have just over a year to go!). However, I've not found the Amarte Eyeconic Eye Cream to have any of the noticeable slight skin exfoliation and constant skin turnover I noted with the FACIAL retinol products I used in the past. These qualities are SOME of the major reasons that prolonged daily use of [especially] higher percentage retinol products tend to thin and ultimately dull/age one's skin. I am not certain, but believe that using a layer of Vitamin C underneath this product and following it with a good 'topical' and additional moisturizer, may be why the 3.8% retinol in the Amarte Eyeconic Eye Cream has not had any detrimental effects on my eyes. I would be interested in getting your opinion here Marta!!

    The cream dispenses wonderfully, easily, and very precisely depending on how much pressure I use on the pump. Amarte Eyeconic literally melts into my eye areas, both up to my brow and underneath covering a large area. I always use a tiny bit around my mouth/lip area, as I do all of my eye treatments; this area has almost the same fragility as the area around our eyes. I find that it is almost scentless. Although I cannot point specifically to the Amarte Eye Cream as the ONE product that has helped to decrease the eye puffiness that has plagued me for the last few years, I do believe that it has played a major part in my daytime regimen in managing this problem. I use a different nighttime eye regimen, so it is difficult to pinpoint exactly which product has been instrumental in decreasing this very noticeable problem.

    At this point, I have no "Cons" with this product!! Very nice and will likely remain a staple in my skin care regimen!

    I purchased this eye cream a while back & recently started using it. i stuck it in the refrigerator & in the morning when I open the door I grab it and use it on both eyes. I think for the price its a good product! It woks well on darkness under the eye as well as fine wrinkles but takes a while. It doesn't take much so it lasts quite sometime & I'm just ordering my second bottle now as soon as its back in stock.

    I will probably buy this product again simply because I love the consistency of how nice it moisturizes my eye area and how easily it absorbs. There's not much fragrance either, which is a must for an eye creme. I didn't notice any difference under my eyes for the 3 months that I used this every day and night but I do like it enough to purchase another tube.

  • I didn't care for this product. It irritated my eyes, so I couldn't use it there. I didn't find it to have any effect on the wrinkles between my eyebrows or around my mouth. It was sufficiently moisturizing.

    I used this product for about 3 months and really did not find it all that helpful. I had used YBF Correct for 2 years prior to that and I felt like I lost ground with under eye circles in particular with this product. It does do a fine job at hydrating (but what eye cream doesn't, right?).
    If smoothing and under eye circles are of top concern to you I say use Correct instead.

    I love love love Amarte eye cream. Thank you.

    absolutely love it!
    Amarte Eyeconic Eye Cream is so far my best eye-area moisturizer. Immediately after application it melts in rejuvenating my skin and leaving it so dewy but not sticky, greasy or oily at all (like many other eye creams and serums work on my eyes). I have very sensitive eyes and almost all my previous eye products in some way caused irritation, even those that worked lovely for me - so I had to tolerate this uncomfort. But this never ever happened to Amarte! Even scratching my eye with cream leftovers on my fingers never caused tears - for me it is totally safe.

    I can not so far report on its efficiency concerning deep wrinkles, but Amarte solved my problem with a "paper" dry under-eye skin area and indeed each morning it makes my eyes so bright and refreshed!

    Still I am not using the package as I guess it was intended - I am pressing a tiny amount of cream on my fingertips and evenly distribute it over my eye area. But I find the package to be ideal lip applicator, and to make sure each drop of cream contributes, after I use Amarte on my eyes I am also spreading cream left-overs over my lips.

    This is the product I will be buying again and can definitely recommend to friends!

    I've tried a lot of eye creams, but this was that really impressed me. I followed the instructions and used it after my usual daily eye cream, and to my amazement, my concealer went on smoothly, with far less evidence of creases and lines. It stayed looking good most of the day, too! I will definitely re-order, but probably not for awhile because there seems to be a nice amount of product and very little is needed.

    I was especially happy to try out Amarte Eyeconic Eye Cream as it already has Marta's stamp of approval. Over a four-week period this eye cream performed well by hydrating my eye area and made a noticeable difference by refining and smoothing the under-eye area and helping to keep the fine lines at bay. Since it is generally accepted that continuous use of retinol tends to thin the skin, I would use this intermittently for refining and smoothing but choose another favorite eye product for my regular daily use.

    I have been using Amarte eye cream for just over a month, and I like it very much! It made an absolute difference in the texture and thickness of my under-eye skin and upper lids. I use it every night, alternating with a lentil-size drop of emu oil / LOL eye serum in the morning. I tried to alternate with YBF Correct, but ended up using Correct on the neck instead - it is too drying to my skin, comparing to my new regimen. My skin is sensitive/T-zone.
    Amarte BB cream ended up going back to the store. It gave my skin a very annoying sheen, that silicone-based products leave, that even blotting papers cannot take away. It also made every pore, and every textural imperfection more pronounced, despite making my skin color even and very attractive. Back to SUKI tinted moisturizer, combined with ELTA ultra clear sun block w niacinamide - love it.
