RoC review: "The first time I opened this tube, the cream starting oozing out before I even squeezed it. It did this for about the first three weeks of using it until the tube had slightly emptied. It was annoying and wasteful. But a little of the product goes a long way. Just a drop covered the entire eye area. At first there was a greasy feel, but that went away after a couple minutes and then my skin felt moisturized. The concealer I use went on nicely over it too."
Hylexin review: "I liked the tube and the way in which it dispensed the cream. The cream has a nice consistency when applying it to the eye area -- not too thick, not too thin. It left a nice, smooth feeling and my concealer went on nice and even over it. The tube said I might feel warmth, but I didn't feel that at all."
Results: "I would choose RoC because it softened the lines around the corners of my eyes, the Hylexin didn't work on wrinkles or lines."
