Mary Kay® TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Eye Renewal Cream
I had the fortunate opportunity to try the Mary Kay TimeWise Repair Eye Cream. I have been using it since I got it and find that it is a very nice eye cream. It's got a nice thick consistency without being goopy or too thick. It smooths on nicely and you don't need a lot for both eyes.
Here is what Mary Kay has to say about their product:
"Smooth, wrinkle-free skin is eye-deal at any age! A lifetime of animated facial expressions, sun exposure and squinting can cause the delicate, fragile skin of the eye-area to become more susceptible to advanced signs of aging, which can contribute to a tired, older-looking appearance. Mary Kay helps combat these aging culprits with the all-new Mary Kay® TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Eye Renewal Cream. This rich, pampering, formula is part of the all-new Mary Kay® TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ line of targeted products, containing ingredients that target sagging skin, crepiness, under-eye bags, puffiness and dark circles. In fact, after a four-week study+, a majority of women agreed that skin felt instantly refreshed, revitalized, that skin looked resilient and that the cream felt silky and simply melted into the delicate targeted eye."
I have some crepiness, some dark circles, and some smile lines or "crows feet" starting. I did find that with extended use there was a little difference, but after a month or more of using it everyday, I can't say it's a "WOW" difference. Here are some before and after pictures.
The applicator tip is meant to massage the cream into your eye. I found it awkward to use unless I put the cream on first with my ring fingers. Also, after massaging one eye, the tip was too warm to feel a cooling effect on the other eye. It's a nice concept, but I find it easier not to use the application tip at all.
According to the Mary Kay website the TimeWise Age Fighting Eye Cream is $26. I can't tell if that is the same product though. It is the only price I can find on any TimeWise eye cream product.
