If you are looking for eye cream products, you probably believe that the eyes are the window to the soul. And you took a look at your windows and realized that they are a bit crinkled, puffy or dark around the edges.
So, the question is, will Clinique eye creams really give you “Results You Can See” or is this just another promise with nothing to support the claim?
Clinique claims to have products that do three different things depending on the eye cream you choose – reduce puffiness, smooth out fine lines and help the dark circles become lighter - if not disappear.
The Clinique website has hundreds of customer reviews for most of the eye cream products, which makes it easier to decide if a product is good for you. There is an online app to help you select the product for your particular issue. Clinique offers a no questions asked money back guarantee as long as you return the unused portion of the product. Of all the make up and skin care brands, Clinique has one of the best reputations worldwide. There is also a “replenishment service” option that lets you decide how often you want a given item reordered and shipped automatically. The time intervals start at 30-days and go out as far as 120-days. This service is excellent if you are a busy person and have a tendency to run out of a product you use a lot because you forgot to place an order. You can purchase their products from third parties online, in major department stores and from the Clinique website itself. You may even get better prices from the third parties if they have sales or specials on the product.
On the negative side, there are a few drawbacks. 1) there are no clinical studies provided and 2) prices vary a lot between particular creams and nearly all are higher than some other brands for the quantity. The price variation is usually important for most of us. In addition, they don’t offer any free samples or smaller “try me” size samples at tiny prices. While it is puzzling why they don’t offer trial sizes, you have to assume that they have good reasons. These really are all the minuses.
People in the know say that the first ingredient in a list is the one that is the largest amount in the product. Though the list of ingredients is long and boring, it starts with “natural” antioxidants. As long as you’re not allergic to any of them, and who knows exactly what they are, this could be good thing.
Ingredients: Naturally occurring antioxidants, collagen, sodium, hyaluronate, panthenol, glycerin, Caffeine, Amentoflavone, Humulus Lupulus Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis Extract, Citri Reticulatae Peel Extract, Pomegranate Juice Extract, and Tanal WG.
Even though the prices can be on the high side, customers who use them don’t seem to mind. Assuming it delivers on its promises, it seems to be worth any extra it might cost. And though the reviews seem to indicate that most users like it, there are other products that users like too. Providing a list of ingredients that emphasizes ‘natural’ is good, but they are not broken down individually so you can’t know if you are allergic to one of them. There is also no mention of their potency.
When you consider the fact that an eye cream must first be safe near your eyes, but also does what it claims, you would have to wonder if there is another brand that might be better.
