An effective eye treatment that visibly improves hydration and firmness


Massage-tip applicator to relieve puffiness, Haloxyl to ease dark circles


May be too rich for certain skin types

I am always looking for that elusive eye cream that will magically eradicate fine lines, which slowly take form under the eyes and on the eyelids. Over the years, its been hit and miss, though it’s been more hits than misses since I began reviewing for TIA. The latest hit for me is Michael Todd True Organics Intensive Organic Cream Eye Treatment ($38)  and what a hit it turned out to be.

Right now, I’m in this intense relationship with Michael and his eye treatment is treating me very well. It is rich and hydrates the under-eye area radically. In my opinion, it’s a major contender amongst some of the past eye creams I’ve had the good fortune to try, such as AQ Eye Serum ($99 in the shop), Osmosis Refresh PM Eye Repair Serum ($54) and Sevani Eye Repair Age Defying Eye Crème ($65).

Perhaps for certain skin types it may appear to be a bit too rich, but this eye cream is easily and fully absorbed without much added work, as I experienced with Sevani Eye Repair, and not as greasy as Osmosis Refresh was in comparison. I’ve been using the Michael Todd eye cream for almost a full 30 days since receiving it and I am quite impressed by the product itself and the job this gem is doing on me.

The area under my eyes looks smoother, appears to be a bit firmer and is definitely well hydrated – no morning puffiness for me. Like any great foundation for the face, this eye cream performs beautifully and complements my eye makeup perfectly during application.

My absolute favorite thing about the Michael Todd eye cream, aside from how good it is and it’s affordable price (a big plus), is the pump dispenser. Who woulda thunk it! The tip is uniquely shaped so that you can load the product on it and apply it directly to your eyes from there, rather than using your fingertips. This allows for a soothing, gentle massage-like application that helps to break up puffiness, if not stop it from occurring altogether. It has a cooling effect that feels great when lightly pressing the treatment into your skin, and I should note that a little goes a long way.

This cream works on fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes with copper peptides and antioxidants, rooibos tea, acai and vitamin E to repair sun damage as well as provide the skin with important antioxidant stress and immune support. It encourages elastin and collagen production while  strengthening the skin in the eye area, enabling it to “bounce back” instead of sagging and wrinkling. The eye cream uses Haloxyl to combat the skin discoloration around the eye that contribute to dark circles. Haloxyl also has an anti-inflammatory effect and reinforces firmness/toning of the eye area. Clinical studies have been published that outline the effectiveness and safety of Haloxyl.

To combat puffiness and bags, the Michael Todd eye cream uses Eyeliss a patented combination of three protein peptides that increase lymphatic drainage, reduce inflammation and help decongest/reduce swelling in the under-eye area when applied with the new soothing massage-tip applicator. For the wealth of hydration the product offers, it uses organic olive and jojoba oils in a base of aloe vera juice, which renders “intense” soothing and hydrating of dry and sensitive skin around the eyes.

I saw on the Michael Todd website a testimonial from plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon of The Doctors in which he states: “Tops my list of best eye cream treatments.” Well, I don’t know Dr. Ordon or his work, but I agree with him in this regard. It is a very good eye cream treatment that is affordable and is giving me the type of results I have been hoping for in a very balanced way. I’m sold.

    I am using Michael Todd's KNU anti aging face lift serum, which I bought for $25 (originally $150) from Living Social. Not worth $150.
    I am intrigued by his eye-o-sonic, which is on sale right now. The only thing is that on his website every product has a five star rating that kind of ?? for me.
