WhatALark that is weird - I had the exact same reaction with the face serum and had to stop using it. Ouch.

TotallyEasterEggFlipped Thu 21-Mar-13 21:42:13

WhatALark it seems we had an almost identical reaction to the eye cream (except you explained it a lot better than me.)

- Puffiness.

I didn't see any instant results, but after using for a few nights I did notice my undereyes were firmer and looked well hydrated & less crinkly.

The instructions say this product is for use under eyes only - I think I must have been using eye cream wrong for years as in the past I always applied eye products to my upper lids also.

2. What three words would you say best describes this product?
light & easily absorbed

3. Do you think you will continue to use Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion in the future? If so why? If not why not?
I don't know that it made such a big difference that I would continue to use it.

4. If it came up in conversation, would you recommend it to a friend? If so, why? If not, why not?
I don't know - for me it's not a WOW/must have/must try product. It's OK and if you can afford to spend that much I guess it's worth a try.

I've not been using it for the last week as I developed an (unrelated) eye infection. Looking forward to be able to use it again as I now really need some eye help after the last week of puffy swollen, tired eyes.

I quite enjoyed this serum.... it had a pleasing combination of richness (the creaminess) and ease of application. It didn't drip down my face either, which was a bonus...... nor did it feel like something that clung to the surface of my skin like a very fine layer of plastic (am thinking specifically of other serums I have used in the past, but naming no names....!). Very hydrating. Think it was the hydrating qualities that worked for me. I feel it has been helpful for the fine lines more than the deeper wrinkles, plus dryness (which I now notice a bit more if I don't bother with the serum). I am not plagued with dark circles or puffiness particularly, so can't really comment on those.

2. What three words would you say best describes this product?

Rich, creamy, and absorbable (is that a word?!)

3. Do you think you will continue to use Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion in the future? If so why? If not why not?

I think I will, as long as I can afford it. Of all the eye serums I have tried, this is definitely the best. I like that a little goes a long way, so even if quite expensive, I think I could probably justify it, as long as I can afford it!

4. If it came up in conversation, would you recommend it to a friend? If so, why? If not, why not?

Probably. I don't think my appearance has been transformed by it, but I like to think it is slowing down the inevitable decline!

LOVED the advanced repair face serum, many thanks for sending that on. Will definitely budget for getting that again. I enjoyed the test, many thanks for including me in it....

- Dryness
- Puffiness.

I liked the texture and feel of the serum and what it did for my eye area. It had a lovely combination of luxurious creaminess without any stickiness or greasy feeling. I was impressed that it was instantly absorbed without any oiliness on the surface of the skin and it didn't leave a tight film/ residue or any feeling of a mask behind. I had a baby 7 days ago and the sleepless nights leading up to the birth left my tired looking and the serum was very soothing and definitely reduced the puffy eye bags. It was exceptionally moisturising and calming to put on. The skin around my eyes felt smoother and i probably do have fewer fine lines. I don't yet have wrinkles and don't have much of an issue with dark circles. Certainly helps dryness.

2. What three words would you say best describes this product?

Effective, non-greasy, cooling.

3. Do you think you will continue to use Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion in the future? If so why? If not why not?

Yes, i think I will. I was impressed with both the easy and comfortable application of the product and the results. It is a premium product and priced accordingly, but after trying it, it feels luxurious and I do feel that applying a tiny amount is all that's necessary, so it's ultimately good value. Compared to other eye serums I have tried, this is head and shoulders above other similar products, mainly because I like the instant absorption and lack of overpowering small and there was no residue. Your marketing trial has also got you a new customer because the eye serum has impressed me enough to try other Estee Lauder skin care products. I also liked that it was relatively un-perfumed so no cloying smell to go to bed with.

4. If it came up in conversation, would you recommend it to a friend? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes, I would. The product has worked for me and I have seen an improvement in my eye area and I like the luxury feel and application enough to recommend the eye serum to friends. The extra gift of the face serum was a real bonus and, I think, assisted in the good results I got. I would certainly recommend using both products together to a friend and would certainly try the face serum again.

Hello

I did receive mine so thank you.

1) whilst there hasn't been any reduction in the dark circles (tbh my ds doesn't sleep well so this may be a losing battle), I can certainly feel a difference in the area. I wasn't using anything before and only have a few very fine lines, I do think there has been a slight improvement and will certainly continue to finish the product to see of this improves.

2) Pampering, luxury, expensive

3) I will finish the bottle and if I feel it has made a real difference I will see if this is worth continuing it is out of my price range so would be a gift rather than a personal treat.

4) using my experience and that of the other testers I would have to say I would if asked about this specfic product but won't feel the need to bring this up to everyone I know.

Thanks for letting my test this.

Hmm maybe my results would have been improved if I'd got the face serum......
