I have used Nutra-Lift Advanced Maximum Eye Repair ($37) for a month and unfortunately cannot see a difference in the wrinkles under my eyes – or any difference in my eyelid area. However, in defense of this cream, let me add that I have some serious vertical lines under my eyes and brown spots on one eyelid. Unless I have some surgical procedure done, I highly doubt any eye cream could tackle those two problems. The first time that I applied the cream, I felt a slight burning sensation. Fortunately, this was only temporary and went away after a day or two of using the cream. I used it twice a day as required and really had high hopes.
What I did like is that the cream has a nice consistency and glides on nicely. There is an odor, but I cannot identify what it is. It isn’t unpleasant, just a tad medicinal. I read the ingredients list (DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid, for starters) and it is quite impressive with a lot of natural ingredients, which is a big plus for those like myself who are wary of things they are unfamiliar with or can’t pronounce.
What’s different about this cream is that it can also be used on eyelids. Most of the eye creams I’ve used are solely for use under the eyes, so, this was a nice bonus. I did feel that it did a good job of moisturizing the eye area, but there was no indication that it helped with puffiness or dark circles or any of the other issues that I need assistance with. After using the cream for two months twice a day, there is still a lot left, which is good and economical and of course. Because it is so concentrated, a little goes a long way. One thing to note is that if you apply too much, the cream will start to pill. So use it sparingly.
I would not recommend this eye cream for a woman with serious eye issues. This cream is better suited to a person with minimal eye problems and it would work just fine to provide them with the moisture they might need.
