Stings But Works

By peekachicka

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream:

When applying this make sure you apply it at least one knuckle away from your water lines above or below. Use at night, not during the day or it will irritate your eyes, especially if you wear contacts. It produces a slight stinging sensation that lasts about 20 seconds. That hasn't gotten any better over a year of daily use. A little goes a long way. I got a deluxe size last Christmas and am just running out now even with daily use. My eyes look a lot less tired in the morning and I'm using less concealer too. Maybe a little pricey but it is worth it!

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream:

I bought this hoping it would help with dark under eye circles. I am a big fan of Benefit products and decided to try it. I have not really noticed any difference and have been using it for several weeks. Hoping to still see a change. The price tag is a little hefty for what have been minimal results so far.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream:

    I needed an eye product as I had run out of my usual brand (not sold at Ulta), I had Ulta dollars to use. So, one of the employees suggested this. She put it on me in the store, and it didnt seem to burn, so I decided I would try it. I know Benefit is a good brand and it was reasonably priced. Well, I put it on that night before bed and when I woke up, my eyes looked puffy and swollen. I put it on under my makeup before work and it has been burning me ever since. I wanted to like this, but i will be taking back. I do have very sensitive skin.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream:

        I love this eye cream. The price is a little high but it lasts forever. It's super creamy, but not greasy, and is great in the summer and winter. I live in the Rocky Mountains so the delicate skin around my eyes can get very dry in the winter. I tried a bunch of other brands, but this one is the best I have found by far.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream:

          After a week of use my dark circles had noticeably faded. I was thrilled with the results but had to stop using it because it irritated my dry, sensitive eyes. I recommend to everyone who doesn't have dry eyes.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream:

              I apply morming and bedtime all around my eyes. I was concerned about getting all cream out of bottle (don't want to waste any), but found that if I turn container upside down when it gets close to the bottom, I don't miss a drop! I found that if I massage gently into skin, and let completely absorb before applying cover up and makeup works best. I love this product.

                  Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream is not indicated for use on the eyelids. For best results, use as directed. Apply delicately under the eyes. It's Potent will help to brighten and smooth the under eye area.

                  A:

                  It's Potent can fade dark circles, but is less likely to fade dark circles that are caused by heredity. It works wonderfully to hydrate, firm, and help smooth fine lines along the eye contour. Beauty tip: apply Benefit Cosmetics Ooh La Lift (Item #: 2202097) instant under-eye brightener after It's Potent Eye Cream for an extra brightening boost.
