Mixed feelings about it

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream:

    I have some mixed feelings about this product. It did a fantastic job at making my dark circles less visible, but it caused wrinkles/lines. I NEVER had any lines/wrinkles under my eye and the first time I used this, I woke up with a line under eye in the morning. I thought maybe it was just cause of how I slept, but I stuck with it for two weeks and more lines formed. While it did it's job of getting rid of the dark circles, I now have 3 wrinkles under one eye and 4 under the other after 2 weeks of using this, so I returned it.

      An Ulta employee recommended this product to me after I told her about the deep creases that run throughout my dark under eye circles. I've been using it for a few days now and it's been working wonderfully!

      Burn baby burn!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream:

          Once my 30th birthday was a few months away, I decided it was time to get proactive about my under eye care. Previously, I used whatever heavy moisturizer I used on my face. This seemed to be something that would be up my alley. I'm African-American with very sensitive and dry skin. I do not have any fine lines or wrinkles. Nor do I have any dark bags. At least, I didn't UNTIL I started using this product. But, before I list out all the horrible effects I suffered from this "potent" product, I will say that the one issue I had before starting this was that I have a toddler so I'm sleep deprived. I also am a trial attorney, so am extra sleep deprived. That's it.

          The first time I used this, it burned. I wasn't sure if hey it's a "tingle" or a burn, so I decided to try it again. I told myself it must be potent! No aging here! I even told my 35 year old brother to try it, and he yelled that it burns. Whoops. In addition, I developed dark black bags under my eyes, and scaly dry patches. I thought this was supposed to moisturize!?! Obviously, I discontinued use, but after a week of using it once a day, my eyes are tender, sore, have scaly dry white patches, and black underneath. It hurts to blink!

            I really like this product, I've suffered from very bad dark under eye circles since a very young age and started to look for an eye cream my first semester of college because those sleepless nights were not helping my dark spots. This cream helps diminish the dark circles well, I use it at night and in the morning. ** I am only 21 years old, my mom did try this and did not get the same results I would say someone older might need something more potent. (hence the 4 stars only)

                      This product does help with puffiness and tired eyes, but be careful using this product if you have sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, you may notice a slight burning sensation under your eyes after applying. It only lasts a minute or so, but just wanted to caution users with sensitive skin. Great product otherwise!

                            Hi gorgeous! You can use each of the products separately. The Firm It Up eye serum tightens and brightens the skin around your eyes while the It's Potent eye cream fades dark circles and smooth fine lines. I would recommend using one in the morning and the other in the evening as part of your skin care routine! xoxo B

                            Hi gorgeous! Benefit does not test for or claim that our products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction). If you have a specific allergy, please take the ingredient listing to your dermatologist to determine if it is suitable for your skin type. xoxo B
