          Comments about Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Pen:

          The main problem I have with this product is the packaging. You have to twist the bottom of the pen to get the cream out, and you have to twist a long time until a little bit of cream comes out. Getting the cream out of the tube was difficult to control the right amount of getting it out and difficult to get all the cream out of the opening applicator tip. You have to squeeze at the rubber applicator tip to get all the product out. If you don't squeeze the product out of the tip, the cream will harden.

          The concept with the rubber applicator tip was a good idea to smooth it under the eye area. However, the tip just pulled and tugged on my skin, so I stopped applying the cream with the tip.

          I don't notice any difference in my under-eye area. Also, I did not notice any cooling sensation when using this eye cream.

            It is hard to get out of the tube. I clicked the darn thing 100+ times before I finally got a smidge out. It's got a cooling effect but that's about it. I've never noticed a difference.

            Comments about Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Pen:

            Miss the old version of this product and wish you'd bring it back. The product is now chunky and hard to smooth in. The tip is rubbery and doesn't smooth over the skin without tugging. The pen itself doesn't click up product evenly. You have to click a million times and a speck comes out but the next time you take off the cap a bunch has come out on its own. The price for this is a complete rip off.

                Comments about Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Pen:

                The biggest problem with this product is the packaging or applicator. There is something to twist on the pen, but just twisting it does not get anything to come out. I got so frustrated with the packaging that I almost gave up and threw it away thinking it was defective. After someone suggested you need to not only twist the end of the pen but squeeze the rubbery applicator at the top, I tried it again, and after some fussing with it the cream finally came out - and too much all of a sudden. I expected it to be cooling on my eyes but it was the opposite - warming. But it actually felt very soothing on my tired eyes. I needed to pat it with my finger after applying and let it dry down before I could apply under eye concealer or makeup, which was fine. Since so much came out I used it both under my eyes and on my lids and it felt good all around. I have genetic dark circles so no product will work on that, but it seemed like this helped with puffiness. I'm very disappointed that the packaging is so poor - I love the concept of a convenient applicator pen but the difficulty in getting the product out (and then too much coming out) is a huge drawback. I would probably buy this regularly if they improved the pen so that the cream came out with just twisting the bottom of the pen - which is the common sense thing most people will do when they get this product thinking that is how it works. I wonder how many people buy this and return it thinking it is defective because twisting the bottom of the pen alone does not work.

                  So I really want to love this product but I just can't. The cream doesn't come out of the applicator. I finally have decided to stop using it and will be returning it to the store to see if I can exchange it for something else. At first I was turning the bottom and squeezing to get the cream out but then I decided it just wasn't worth it. I wanted to do an up grade from the FAB eye roller but this is just not the product for me.

                  Just buy it in the jar...

                  Comments about Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Pen:

                  I'm a bit of a nut for eye creams, and I had been considering the one from Skyn Iceland for a while when I saw it in a kit, in pen form. I double checked: they're the exact same product. The kit was a good price, so I bought it. Unfortunately, I wish I had saved my money and just purchased an actual jar during the recent skin event. The applicator looked nice, but I have had some trouble with it.

                  -- To get the product to the pen tip, you twist the base. All well and good but A) it comes up sooooo slowly (I am an impatient person, okay?) and B) it's tough to gauge how much is going to come up. I usually end up with far too little or too much. Also, when you set the pen down there is enough backed up pressure for a little more product to inch forward. Which brings us to:
                  -- Product remains in the pen tip after use by the nature of the design. Any product left in the sqwidgy part of the pen ends up drying out by the time I use it again. I then have clumps of lotion-bits that won't smooth into my skin. I usually end up squeezing the sides to force the remaining product out in order to not waste it later. Which is an inconvenience.
                  -- The applicator is nice in theory, but I find that it tends to pull at my undereye if there isn't enough product between the tip and my skin. It also sort of just smears it around in patches because of the formula of the eye cream. It's almost lumpy seeming, but it does melt into my skin pretty well... if I use my fingers.

                  Overall, the applicator isn't good. The jar is a better value anyway, and how often do you put eye cream on in the middle of the day (I think that's the idea behind the pen, to be able to take it with you)? For me, never. I'd rather have the jar on my counter than the pen rolling off of it all of the time.
