  • Skin Types: All
Lightweight eye cream diminishes the appearance of eye puffs, darkness and fine lines. Non-creep, cream/gel formula actually helps hold eye makeup in place. For use morning and night, both under eyes and on lids. Ophthalmologist Tested.

Usage Instructions:
  • Use morning and night after 3-Step Skin Care.
  • With ring finger, apply sparingly to entire eye area using a gentle patting motion.

The CLINIQUE all about eyes for All Skin Types (Rs 2150/15 ml) is a lightweight gel creme meant to reduce the appearance of under eye puffiness, darkness and fine lines. This Lightweight milky peach emulsion has a creme/gel formula that spreads quite easily and is supposed to be used over the lids as well as under the eye area.

A few months back, whilst I had undertaken the 30 day eye makeup challenge, by the end of the first week , my eye area was sore,and looked quite dark and dehydrated with all that application and removing of eye makeup. That is when I wanted to get rid of the patchiness and puffiness around the eyes and after looking for a few reviews online, I decided to pick up this award winning product from Clinique. And now, it has become an inseparable part of my skin care. 

The creme comes in a small plastic jar with a screw top metallic lid. the packaging is convenient,and light (I’m not too fond of glass jars after I’ve broken a few !!) and is very travel friendly, which is great, because I certainly need an eye cream around when I’m travelling. 

The texture is lightweight and non greasy, though it may visually appear to be oily when you first spread it, but gets absorbed in a few minutes. I use this creme twice a day, and every morning,when I wake up, my eye area feels and looks revived and better than what it had felt the night before. You need a very tiny amount as it spreads very easily,and this jar that I have , I have been using it almost everyday since the last 3 months or more, with small gaps once in a while,and I know it’s easily going to last me another 2 months to say the least.

The results are not miraculous,and I started seeing them only after religiously using the creme for more than a month and a half. My eye concern was, and is ,mostly puffiness and this cream has incredibly helped in solving and eliminating my problem completely. I never had major dark circles, so a little bit of what had appeared during my thirty day eye makeup challenge is also gone. Apart from that, my eye area looks brighter and more supple too(bye bye fine lines!!) . It also claims to improve the staying ability of eye makeup, but honestly, I haven’t noticed because i mostly apply a primr underneath my eye makeup,and it takes care of the staying duration of my makeup!

Although, I don’t think/believe it can completely eliminate severe dark circles, but I am not sure, so I don’t want to make a statement here. If you have very dry areas around the eyes and deep circles, you might want to try the richer variant of this creme, for extra dry skin.
Overall, the CLINIQUE all about eyes is an excellent eye cream for mild puffs and under eye circles. The gel creme spreads easily,and keeps the eye area nourished for long hours,and over a period of continuous usage,diminishes the mild eye area concerns and also eliminate them completely like in my case. The eye area looks brighter and more supple with a considerable reduction in fine lines too. Earlier, I never really used to bother much about eye creams, even after having started an anti-ageing skincare regime post my 30, but now, I can very confidently say that this is perhaps my best find ever as far as skincare is concerned and an inseparable part of my skincare regime!

    It's good to know at least the product delivers to a large extent what it promises to. I know how difficult it is to find the good under eye products.
    Btw, it would be nice if you check out my blog as well. :)

    I have been using this since the last 4 months, after your recommendation. I can see the transformation, not very evident or drastic from the word 'go' but definitely there.

  • Agnibanya Das Poddar

    I haven't tried the Avene one so wouldn't know..Btw, is it available in India?

  • Agnibanya Das Poddar

    It's a great product Poo,and one jar easily lasts 6 months.. :0

  • Agnibanya Das Poddar

    Bee, in case you have very deep circles, you might want to go for the more intense version of this one. This is good for milder issues..

  • Agnibanya Das Poddar

    I'm sure you would like it Poorva! :)

  • Agnibanya Das Poddar

    Little darling, you need to sleep more and give your eyes some rest too …an eye cream alone will not work 😛
