My approach to eye creams:
I personally don't use any eye creams (not because I don't think that some of them might help, if only a little) but I just can't be bothered too much. I don't care about any temporary or cosmetic effects, so I don't bother with most of them. I use a lot more natural products (natural butters, i.e. cocoa butter straight up on my face instead, if I do use anything).

This cream is an example of something I'd probably never use. It has a very heavy texture and you can feel the heaviness of the product on the skin even after applying. I don't like this feeling, so I wouldn't be bothered to use it, except maybe at night. I can see this as a heavier night eye cream to keep the area hydrated.

Summary
Ehh, whatever. Not much I have to say. If you're looking for a heavier eye cream, you might want to try this. But I don't have much to say about this product actually. Although I am quite happy to see that it is fragrance free (especially important for products being used around the eye area!). And I'd say at $32.00 this is a pretty expensive buy. There's really nothing in the ingredient mix that can justify such a high price. Certainly many comparable women-targeted eye creams are much much more expensive, but still, I'm sure there' products out there with comparable formulas that are more reasonable. Companies love to mark up products like eye cream, as if they are so highly technologically loaded, but really are just a basic cream.

This is just a personal review and is not scientific in anyway. I have no relationship or interest in Anthony Logistics, monetary or otherwise.
