StriVectin-SD review: This seemed the easiest to remember to use every night and morning. If I were to buy one of these it would be this one, as it felt like it was making a difference. However, if the product got into the eye (of course it's not supposed to go "in" the eye), it did cause my eye to water a little. Although it's more expensive, after six weeks, there's at least half a tube left."
Olay review: "Remembering to use this every other day was less easy. I loved the idea of a delivery system, but the sponge seemed a little harsh on the skin under the eyes and, on occasion, the 'pod' scratched my skin. After six weeks, all the Olay pods were used."
Results: "I honestly can't see much difference after using either product. Truth be told, I probably avoided looking at those lines before. (What you can't see isn't there, right?) Also, after asking various people to stare at my eyes, I got mixed responses as to which eye showed fewer lines."
