Nice but not worth the price
A really light and refreshing eye cream. I usually stay away from heavily fragranced products but I enjoyed the crisp smell. This cream did not feel heavy on my skin and worked well with my other skin care products. My eye area looked immediately refreshed and bright however im yet to see any real long term benefits. At 49 dollars a jar I feel like the price point is a little high for something that seems to have no long term benefits for me
Gentle and effective
This is a really gentle and quality eye cream. It doesn’t feel too heavy on the delicate eye skin. The results weren’t miraculous but I did notice a slight difference. I would recommend this for most people looking for a quality everyday cream!
I loved the consistency of this eye cream. It also smelt really nice, like passionfruit. I have dark circles under my eyes and I felt like this moisturised the area but didn’t really lighten the circles.
Lightweight and Refreshing
I enjoyed trialling the Olay Brightening Eyes eye cream and found it to be a refreshing smelling and lightweight eye cream that that hydrated my eye area and reduced fine lines. My dark circles diminished and I would continue to use this eye cream longer term.
Great Eye Cream
I was fortunate to get on the trial team for the Olay Eyes Brightening Eye Cream, and I would definitely recommend this product to others. After using it for only a few days, I saw a noticeable difference in the dark circles under my eyes, and found the product had a pleasant scent, and a little bit of the product goes a long way. The packaging is also nice, and the product is easy to get out of the jar.
Brightening eye cream
I was excited to trial this brightening eye cream from BeautyCrew. It is a light weight cream that spreads easily around the eyes. It has a pleasant mild scent and did not irritate my skin and I have quite sensitive skin. I feel that it has maybe slightly reduced the darkening around my eyes but I feel I would need to trial it for a longer period of time to be sure so I will continue to use it
A great all-rounder
I would describe this as a good all-rounder eyecream. A small amount goes a long way and provides hydration to the delicate eye area. I didn’t notice much brightening effect but I also don’t believe an eye cream would be capable of this. An eye cream is a must in my skincare routine and I would purchase this again.
Fruity smelling under eye cream
This product comes in quite a lot of plastic packaging. For the size of the product, and in the current era, I'd be appreciative of less plastic packaging or no plastic at all.
Once the jar is removed, it has a professional sleek look and comes with a lot of product. When I opened the jar, it was full (to the brim) and I sense that this will last a long time.
Feeling the product, it's got a moist, oily feel but appears to sink into my skin relatively quickly (I'm 35 with sensitive and dehydrated skin).
As someone with sensitive skin, I sometimes have a reaction to products, but I didn't with this one, which is a positive. I also liked the fruity smell of the cream and that it didn't leave my skin looking or feeling oily after applying.
I didn't see an immediate improvement in brightness under my eyes, but it's not a bad mid-range product to add to your routine if you're not already taking the time to use an eye cream.
Wow! Just wow! Olay have really out done themselves with their eye cream for bright eye! Not only was my skin visibly hydrated but I really feel like it helped to reduce my dark circles. This eye cream was light weight and has a pleasant smell that’s definitely not overpowering.
This is a nice, basic eye cream.
It has light consistency and works great under the makeup, providing a dewy and supple base.
It’s not ideal for sensitive skin as it’s quite fragrant.
I’m not a fan of the packaging, jars are not the most hygienic vessel for something that goes so closely to my eye.
Overall it’s a hydrating cream however it doesn’t brighten. For the price you could find much better cream or you could spend less and get equally as good or better substitute.
I've been wanting to try this product for a while but hadn't quite finished my regular eye cream so hadn't taken the leap yet so when BEAUTYcrew invited me to trial it I was so happy!
The Olay Eyes Brightening Eye Cream's packaging looks great, sleek and stylish. The screw top is easy to undo/redo but I'm not worried about it coming open in my cosmetics case by accident.
The cream itself has quite a silky texture and I LOVE the smell (kinda tropical?)! Application is super easy as it just glides over the skin - a little goes a LONG way.
After using it consistently for a few weeks I can honestly say that the appearance of dark circles under my eyes have definitely dimmed, leaving me with brighter skin under my eyes.
This is the best! I will 100% keep it as part of my routine and also be recommending to friends and fam. Thanks BEAUTYcrew!
Big claims for a little jar.
I received this item for review.
The Olay Eyes Brightening Eye Cream is a little jar that makes big claims. Can it really brighten the under eye and reduce wrinkles?
Let me preface by saying I am a 33 year old woman with normal/dry skin, a fair complexion and noticeable dark under eyes. I used this product twice a day, as recommended.
First of all let’s discuss packaging. The eye cream comes in a plastic screw lid jar. It feels weighty enough in the hand and is a reasonable size. I could imagine this product lasting a good amount of time due to the small amount of product needed with each use.
Between the fingers the product has a rich, creamy consistency that spreads easily across the skin. When applied to the under eye area it leaves a noticeable “shine” as it begins to dry down and absorb into the skin. Perhaps this is where the brightening claim comes in? It feels nice on the skin and makes a good base for make up products. It didn’t sting or irritate the eye area, but of course your experience may be different. I didn’t detect a scent in this product, which is appropriate for an eye product.
The ingredients feature niacinamide which is known for its skin brightening benefits. Perhaps over an extended period of time this may assist with some brightening of the eye area, although I believe anyone with under eye discolouration will have limited success with this product.
As for the wrinkle claim, I believe that comes down to comparing untreated skin vs moisturised skin. Of course moisturised skin will appear to have less noticeable wrinkles, which I think is why they are able to get away with this claim. I did not trial the product long enough to notice any difference in my skin.
Overall this is an okay product. It is easy to use and acts as a decent base for makeup products. Is it the best eye product I have used? No. There are better products out there with more effective active ingredients. However if you are curious about trying this product, wait until you can find it on sale somewhere.
Fake an 8 hour sleep
A light cream that is gentle to the skin. There are small glittery pigments in it to help brighten dark eye circles which is a great bonus for a tired mumma who is trying to look like she's had 8 hours of sleep. Plenty of product and a little goes a long way.
Lightweight, brightening eye cream
This eye cream is good for during the day and in the morning as it definitely brightens up your under eyes. It's very lightweight so goes well under makeup as well. However, if you have super dry under eyes, I don't think this would be moisturising enough. Also, I'm not sure if it has significantly reduced my under eye circles but I will continue using it and see!
Olay Eyes Brightening Eye Cream
Cream is very light and soft. Not to oily ether. Alot goes a long way so you don't need much to apply. Definitely brightens your under eyes and feels refreshing.
A light cream for the eyes
This is a wonderful cream that was light and helped lighten my under-eyes. A small amount went a long way and it smelt great!
I'd been wanting to introduce an eyecream to my routine for ages. This one did not disappoint. I noticed a brightness around the eyes in just a week of using the product in my morning and night skin routine.
Doesn't improve dark circles/wrinkles, nice scent!
I was very excited for something to help my dark circles, although I was skeptical. It turns out I was right to have doubts about something that 'instantly' improves dark circles.
So essentially this is a lovely smelling (tropical? passionfruit? lychee?) eye cream that does very little. Clearly I really loved the scent!
The consistency is a true cream texture in that if you hold the jar upside down nothing comes out. The cream does not pill or flake. In terms of moisture, it neither sat on top of the skin nor sunk in. It was kind of neutral.
Instantly improves dark circles claim:
The cream is white, and has no tint so I was interested to see how it could 'instantly' improve dark circles. So the answer is there is a very slight dewy finish / clear shine to the cream that, upon taking a photo with a flash, reflects and gives you a slight glowy / slight reflective shimmer effect under the eyes. However in 'real life' you don't see this at all. So unless you need something to make you look better in flash only photos I think the ability to instantly improve dark circles is very limited.
Improving fine lines claim:
It doesn't provide a timeline for when one should notice an improvement in fine lines (e.g. 4 weeks) it just says fine lines will 'improve over time'. I tried this everyday for a week and sadly noticed no improvement on this front either
Why you would buy this:
You would buy this if you were very into lovely tropical scents. I could imagine this being used as a good primer with a slight glow for those looking for a dewy look to makeup, however you may need to buy multiple jars for this use.
I would not buy this to improve dark circles or fine lines.
Found my HG
I have been on the hunt for my perfect HG eye product . I have tried creams, gels, lotions and serums.
Finally I have found THE ONE!!!
I was going to wait 2 weeks to get a good feel of this product, but after 5 days applying morning and night, my crows feet and wrinkles appear smoother and under my eyes look brighter. I love the texture and the scent. It wasn’t overpowering. The texture just glided on beautifully. Will be recommending this to all my family and friends. Another gorgeous Olay product.
