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!

    JustD,
    use oil before DD - like a serum. I like ELS (every lipid serum w/AOX) by Skinceuticals - I had some excellent re-growth of eyebrows from it, btw. It's light and absorbs easily; no smell. Argan oil may work nicely too.
    I am using Dr.Alkaitis organic eye cream and like it very much - took care of DD-induced dryness within 24hrs; makes a great base for RMS Uncover and no oiliness/sheen.
    Next I am trying Kahina Beauty - highly resommended by my gorlfriend; she uses Kahina's serum and loves it. Can't wait - must decide, what to move on ;-)
    I do like DD as a neck/decolette cream a lot!

    I have added a little hydration to the DD that sort of offsets the drying affect that tends to follow shortly after application.

    A little Vitamin E oil really seems to help and hopefully, it doesn't do anything to detract from the other ingredients in the moisturizer. I really do like what it's done for my eyes altogether. I was developing very fine lines from squinting as I tried to read without my reading glasses on, so this has awesomely eradicated most of them or minimized them altogether.

    Let me know if either you or Junko find something else you like Sunday. I'ma be in your shadows for a while :D

    Awww Thank You Junko! just your over all concern is VERY SWEET!!! Well I am not a natural Redhead, as a child I did have natural freckles though. I only apply the Lightening Lotion, not the GlycoPeel and when you see my befores & afters...at least IMO...I have larger eye sockets that make for more undereye area for splotches to appear. As life would have it MOST of the STUBBORN leopard spots are at my middle and upper cheeks anyway sooo ~ oh and it is not full on application just the bottoms of my undereyes, but it is still my eye area.

    I've already decided to have final after pic's done this weekend so I can move on...but seriously Junko Thank YOU for your concern ~ I mean that!!!

    Sunday * is it okay to put Lumixyl under your eyes like that? Makes me squint just thinking about it! Does Lumixyl say it's okay...and even then I wonder since tretinoin messed up my eyes so badly and I didn't even put it under my eyes. Don't dry out your eye area too badly ~ besides aren't those under your eyes just freckles? I thought red-heads were supposed to have a few freckles anyway :)
