As I was reading comments today I saw another positive review for SenZen Double Dose Eye Cream (A 2011 Five Best eye cream winner) and I thought let me chime in with a full post of my experience of this eye cream. As I rely more and appreciate all the efforts going into trial and error and feedback I'm happy to say that I too purchased this cream ($84 in the TIA shop) based on recommendations of fellow TIA members ~ especially Junko's experience. When you take into account that here in California gas costs an arm & leg, my city's sale tax just went up, our house has (friendly?) termites and the HARDEST water I've ever bathed in...well dag nabbit sometimes a girl needs the biggest pot of eye cream she can find ~ one that works!!!
My initial reason to purchase was of course, that I too am in search of the zenith in eye creams but what ended up being the rescue reason was the culmination of dryness from the retinol product I was using. Winter weather, hot baths, and retinol...one evening as I was drying off, I looked in the mirror and my under eyes looked like lizard skin. I knew something had been 'off' lately, my face was tight and dry and no moisturizer was working the way they used too. I started reading more about my products, hit on similar comments about retinols and that was just when Junko posted My Eyes After Tretinoin and also Marta gave us all 20% off. Whew I couldn't order fast enough!
SenZen Double Dose is a "HUGE pot of cream", it is rich and hydrating and dense. I do love a light, creamy gel type eye cream too, but for my retinol suffering eye area, this cream hit the bulls-eye! I love that a little goes along way ~ obviously will last awhile, the price point is great, especially as Junko pointed out you do get a Double Dose. My make up slides over this cream very nicely, I've been using it since 3/11 and never experienced any pilling or rolling, it soaks right in so in case I'm hurried I do not have to wait before I apply make-up and more importantly my under eye skin is better than normal!!! Of course I stopped using the retinol too, but I've inadvertently damaged my skin before AND IT TOOK WEEKS to see results of healing and/or hydrating. With SenZen Double Dose it took days, just to throw it out there, I think it took 5 - 6 days and I was seeing the results I had hoped for...the results you here at TIA had shared about.
I'm not as proficient about ingredients as a lot of you are, but I do love nuts and perhaps my skin loves nuts too because this cream has sweet almond oil and macadamia oil and as Marta has mentioned in her review; I love that macadamia oil is one of the top ingredients. Macadamians are amazingly nutritional and 22% of the oil is omega 7, a fatty acid. Well all I know is that I love this eye cream and I love the firming and hydration I have experienced since using it. And I love that it was recommended based on other experiences and results ~ Thank You all for sharing!
