TIA Review by Marta:
Sciote Firming Eye Crème is just about the best eye cream in its price bracket that I have come across. It is hydrating and anti-aging, keeping the eye area skin smooth and wrinkles at bay. I am always being asked to recommend a really good eye cream at around the $60 mark, and finally I can.

The real litmus test is that I have continued to use it even though my 30-day test period is up. I find it useful on its own, or for extra hydration if one’s serum (in my case AQ Eye Serum, $99 in the shop) needs a moisturizing boost. The texture is somewhat dense, but it absorbs perfectly and does not feel heavy or greasy.

The first few ingredients in an aloe base and palm oil base include two alpha hydroxyl acids, glycolic acid and lactic acid. These exfoliants help clarify and smooth the skin, encouraging wrinkle repair. Although they feature quite prominently, I did not find Sciote’s eye cream sensitizing in any way. Some of the other actives include alpha lipoic acid, known as the "universal antioxidant" that can can work inside the cell and in the cell membrane. There’s also coenzyme Q10, an antioxidant that helps neutralize harmful free radicals, one of the causes of aging.

Amongst the botanical ingredients in Sciote Firming Eye Crème is Oregon grape, which is in fact not a grape, but related to the barberry. It does, however, have a good research pedigree when it comes to treating skin disorders. In addition, there’s antioxidant strawberry and kiwi fruits. And I like the inclusion of propolis, which bees make and use as a kind of bee mortar to hold their hives together.

I would have preferred Sciote Firming Eye Crème to have come without sodium hydroxide, a potential irritant, and the preservative phenoxyethanol. But that’s really not much to dislike in what is a terrific mid-priced eye cream.

    Such a wonderful eye cream. I am so happy with it as it has worked so well on my deeper expression line and also around my lip area. This cream is better than the more expensive eye creams I have used on this website and a little goes a long way. I am in my 50's

    I'm 42 and have awful puffy bags, dark circles, and some fine lines that seem to have started that cross hatching thing. After reading all to positive reviews on this product and knowing Marta stood behind it, I tried it and very glad i have. The puffy bags are about gone and dark circles are still there but not as bad, I have to find something a little stronger for those. The fine lines have softened and seem to improve daily. I even have used it on my upper lip and it seems to almost plump it. I do love the refreshing scent even though it took some time getting used to it, because it first reminded me of citronella. Thank you to everyone for the reviews and info. its appreciated.

    I had been intrested in Sciote for quite some time but never made a purchase. Recently I finally decided to buy the firming eye cream as my first Sciote product and not only am I glad I did, it did not disappoint!
    This is by far the best eye cream I have ever used. Light but very effective and hydrating. Works great with makeup. I will be purchasing more Sciote as my budget permits. I would highly recommend this product no matter your age. I'm 38 and very happy with my purchase!

    I received a generous sample of this eye cream when I placed an order in December. It goes on smoothly and feels rich with a lovely scent that dissipates immediately. It doesn't pill under concealer or make the eye area "greasy" or cause milia (those white hard bumps) to appear. In my mid-fifties, I have firmly established "crows" and some cross hatching areas also. These areas feel firmer & I think are getting less pronounced. It hasn't helped (yet?) with dark circles. I want to keep using!

    I have been using this firming eye cram for a few weeks and I would like to report that I really, really love it! I am 49 and needed a little attention to my eye area and this cream has worked wonders...I will continue with this wonderful remedy!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I received my firming eye about 2 weeks ago and I would like to say that I see a dramatic difference around my eye area already! The cream moves wonderfully and works so well with my undereye makeup. I would highly recommend this product as I am not experiencing any of the problems Cynthia is experiencing. Really happy with my purchase.
    Thank you

    I was so excited when this arrived, but sadly the Sciote Peptide+Defense Firming Eye Creme didn't work out for me. Specifically, there was a problem with the dispenser resulting in leaving me no control on how much creme to dispense. Because of the wastage (getting about three time more than I needed) I returned it.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    My first meeting with the Sciote firming eye-cream is very "up-lifting" in a double sence. Consistency and the feel of a proper "working-cream", means a lot to me. The consistency of this cream is perfect; it has a certain fullness to it, and it absorbes quickly. It leaves a velvety softness to the skin, and it combines beautifully with a tiny, tiny drop of under-eye foundation.
    My next purchase will include Sciote for sure :)

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    Sciote Peptide+Defense Firming Eye Creme is a lovely cream that goes on well and is quickly absorbed. It has helped with fine lines but not sagging skin or dark under eyes. I scraped every last drop from the bottle and need to decide if I will re-order or try something new.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I received a nicely sized sample of this when ordering some other products around Christmas. I don't have puffiness, but sometimes I feel like I look like an exasperated Peanuts comic character. My lower lids were chronically dry, lined and not smooth. I noticed some of that loose, bumpy skin in the corners. I was not disciplined about applying the cream, but after a couple of weeks of spotty use, I noticed a definite difference. Now I've been using it 2x a day and I feel as though I look younger and more rested. I'm debating buying this, or doing a bottle of Correct. I'm impressed with the results from Sciote, true, but I wonder which ingredient is making the difference? Is it the small doses of glycolic acid making lasting changes or is it the Syn-ake giving me immediate gratification? I haven't used Correct for a while, and I wonder, will it have the same smoothing effect? I am 50, living where's there's Winter and I spend a lot of time outside.

    I cannot say enough good things about this product!! I started with a "Top Five" eye product, SkinOwl Eye+ and although it did help with my eye puffiness, it did not do the job I'd hoped. So, based on the rave reviews of the Sciote Peptide+Defense Firming Eye Creme, I've added this OVER the SkinOwl Eye+. They are two very different products. The SkinOwl Eye+ is more of a gel, while the Sciote product has a lovely creme texture that melts into both my under eye area and over my eyelids. The scent, while very faint is so fresh and rejuvenating. With the combination, I'm finally getting comments from close friends that I look more rested. Since the eye area is so thin, I find it is similar to the area around the mouth and lips that, with age makes my lip color products (lipstick/stain/gloss) seem to fall into those 'micro', fine wrinkles. I use BOTH of these eye products around my lips/mouth too. I've been doing this for years with the various eye cremes and other products I've used. It has been extremely helpful. Friends my age often ask me how I avoid the dreaded lip color issue I just described. I remind them that I've found it very useful to use my eye care products routinely to minimize wrinkles in this area. Like another reviewer, I was extremely surprised that Sciote Peptide+Defense Firming Eye Creme did NOT make it into the TOP FIVE for 2015!!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Dazed and confused that Sciote's eye cream did not make Marta's best five this year. This eye cream has changed my eye area dramatically after only using for a week and I have never stopped. Amazingly affordable and works wonderfully. You have my vote!

    I got this a while back in the form of a generous sample through the Discover collection a while back and absolutely loved this eye cream. Not everyone likes the scent but I loved it. I really enjoyed the way the cream felt on my eye area, soaking in readily but leaving it feeling smooth and moisturised, never even over my AQ. I don't think it diminished my dark circles but the appearance of them was definitely minimised by the cream when it was on. I'm hooked on my YBF and AQ and used this to make my other bottles go further and you know what? It held its own next to these creams. Definitely a good budget alternative to the really expensive creams on this list.

    I am 65 and Very Concerned so love your website.. This eye cream is the best I've tried of yours. Second order so you know I love it. I also put it on lip wrinkles and a friend tells me its the best they've looked in years. Still gave it 5 stars but what's up with the Sciote pump?? it often sticks then sprays product halfway across the room! I try to catch it in my other hand! Read other reviews re this problem and have smacked it against hard surfaces from either top or bottom. Not much luck. Don't like to waste product!!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This is the best eye cream I have ever used! I can't afford the really expensive creams, but this one is great. The lines around my eyes are going away! It's hard to believe the change. I didn't have really bad dark circles, but now I have none. Plus the smell is wonderful. After I finish putting this cream around my eyes, I put the excess on my lips and now they are soft and supple whereas before they were really dry. I found this cream on the 5 best list so I thank you Marta for all the education you do. I really appreciate you!

    Also got this via the Discover Marta box. And I really like what it has done to the area below my eyes and around my upper cheek bone.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I received the Sciote eye cream in Discover with Marta promo and all I would like to say is thank you!! I really love this product and it has really changed my eye area for the better. I would highly recommend it!

  • 5 stars 3 out of 5

    I received this eye cream in the Discover with Marta collection and it is a nice eye cream, but it hasn't done anything spectacular for me. Unlike others, I don't care for the scent. It absorbs and moisturizes well, but I haven't noticed any reduction in fine lines or dark circles. I would not purchase this.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I've only recently begun using this, but I am very happy that I acted on the positive reviews. I love everything about this eye cream - texture, smell (heavenly!), cost, and it doesn't irritate my eyes, which are very sensitive and tear easily. Because I've only been using this for a short time, I can't say if it will diminish my crows feet, but I do feel like it is helping. My eye area looks and feels hydrated, and that makes me happy!

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    Received Sciote firming eye creme in my "Discover" pack, and have to say I am extremely impressed. It is rich and nourishing but not greasy, and soaks in smoothly without pilling. It works fantastic on my extremely sensitive eyes --that usually sting and burn with most products. Sciote eye creme did not irritate my eyes at all and it helped calm my eyes after a long day. Overnight it was very effective with redness, puffiness and dark circles. And the smell is heavenly! It has a light flowery-herbal smell that is relaxing. Especially good at bedtime, like dropping into a hot bath.
    I will buy full size to add to my evening arsenal of potions!

  • Dear Reviewers,
    Would you please provide your age when you review products so that those of us in the 50+ age bracket can determine whether the results you've achieved might be pertinent for our mature skin. Thank you!!

  • so far I like this product very much. Use it at night, after application of squalane to improve moisture/penetration. Good or bad?

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I have been using Sciote skin care for the better part of a year now and specifically I have been using the eye creme as part of my daily regime and I am a HUGE fan of the product! First, the smell is to die for and my skin glistens after using. I receive repeated compliments from those around me on how young and fresh the product has made my skin and I LOVE it!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    One of my staples! Best eye creme I have ever used...and I have tried many.

  • Hi Diane
    This the best in its price range. However, I think AQ does a better job if you can trade up in price.

  • Marta
    Would you say this is good for undereye bags & puffiness? Or would another product be better? This is my biggest beauty challenge and nothing seems to really help. I would appreciate any suggestions, Thanks!!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I am so happy Marta recommended this product! This eye cream is the best "bang for the buck". My eye area is smoother and the crows feet are slowly going away. My favorite eye cream! Thanks Marta!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    You were right Marta..... I adore this eye cream!

    I love this eye creme! I've been using it since the product launched after trying alot of other eye cremes over the years. This is by far my favorite.

    Love, love, love Sciote!! I am in my 40s and have been using Sciote since it
    came on the market. I have never had so many compliments, and my skin
    has never looked better. No one can tell how old I am. Yay!! I don't know
    who came up with this stuff, but I do have a question - What took you so
    I think the eye cream is great but for me using the whole product line
    really transformed my skin. Thank you Sciote!!

    Hi Susan

    We are waiting for a few more reviews to come in from our testers (I think the antioxidant mask should be the next review coming in) - if there are more positive reviews then we will definitely look into carrying the line.
