UPDATE: Shiseido Benefiance Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream

Ever since I noticed the web-like fine lines underneath my eyes, I've been so obsessed looking for the perfect eye cream. Before I had started using this product, I've been using other eye creams from The Face Shop and Pond's (which I'm going to make a review sometime soon). But I guess they don't seem to be working well enough for me.

So anyway, I had been using Shiseido Benefiance Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream for more than a month now. The cream is rich. I think it's too thick and it leaves a shiny film around my eyes. I'm not really so much of a "sticky product" fan, but for night time it's fine. So yeah, I use this at night and I use a different eye cream in the morning.

The first night I used it, I noticed in the morning that it diminished the look of fine lines underneath my eyes. I was so surprised and I actually couldn't believe it myself but I was so happy! =) The 2nd night I applied this, I noticed the next day that I had a red bump underneath my left eye. I panicked. The red bump didn't last that long, it immediately disappeared the next day.. So I still gave the eye cream another chance. I thought maybe I should put on just a little lesser so my eye area won't be over-moisturized. So that's what I did. And I didn't get the red bump again. Although, there are times when I end up putting a little more, I occasionally get a tiny bump under or above my eye. But they don't last long at all, the next day they're gone... But then again I noticed that my fine lines would reappear. I don't know why. Some days they're gone, some days they're back... As for my dark eye circles, I don't really think it did anything for that part. And I am not really sure if any eye cream would help get rid of it, I have asthma and my dermatologist told me that asthma and other allergies could cause dark circles. So yeah..

The product is quite pricey. It's around PHP 2,700+ (USD $ 57.00). I am not sure if I am going to repurchase. I would probably try other products first and keep looking for my perfect eye cream.

Any eye cream you have loved/hated?

Wow, how expensive! It's what I hate about buying makeup/skincare products that are expensive--they can be hit or miss. :(

Thanks for the review!

I know! I hate that money gets wasted when pricey skincare products don't work ... But when that happens, I just give them to my Mom or my sisters. But still, I feel bad that it didn't work for me. *sigh*
