I was asked to review the Cures by Avance Age Defyer Eye treatment ($50), which was great as eye creams happen to be my favorite beauty products to use. Being unfamiliar with the brand, I did a bit of research online and read some reviews of the product line in general. I didn’t read specific reviews of the eye cream because I didn’t want to go into the trial being biased.

I am 44 years old and have pretty good skin; this being said, the fine lines around my eyes are frustrating to me. During my teens I spent a great deal of time in the sun, either playing sports or just trying to get a great tan (yes, I know better now!). So I did lots of squinting to see tennis/golf/soccer balls in the bright sun. Needless to say, I have some lines around my eyes.

The Cures by Avance eye cream has a nice consistency – not too thick and not too watery. I also like that it is in a tube, so the cream is squeezed out rather than in a container that I have to dip my finger into and be concerned about contaminating the cream with bacteria from my finger.

Overall, I would recommend this eye cream for keeping the orbital area hydrated. The cream leaves my eye area feeling moisturized throughout the entire day. I have used this eye cream for a few months now and still like it; however, I don’t feel I can really notice a difference in the reduction of fine lines as the product claims. This might be a good eye cream for someone who hasn’t really started to see true fine lines or someone concerned about keeping the eye area hydrated.
