Intensive Wrinkle-Free Anti Aging Eye Cream - Miracle Worker?



First Botany Intensive Wrinkle Free Anti Aging Eye Cream
0.5 fl oz package

First Botany's Intensive Wrinkle Free Anti Aging Eye Cream is supposed to firm and plump the skin around your delicate little peepholes. With continued usage you should notice reducing of fine lines, wrinkles, puffy eyes and dark circles. It's non-irritating, clinically tested, allergy tested and dermatologist tested. First Botany is proud to offer products that are not animal tested, cruelty-free and made in the USA. First Botany Cosmeceuticals also stands by their products with a 100% guarantee.

I'm at the age, where I'm just starting to really notice beginner's crows feet in the outer corner's of my eyes. It also seems that no matter how much I sleep, I tend to have some mild dark under-eye circles. My favorite part (not really)...when using concealer to hide it all, those fine lines get accentuated. I was ready to try something new.

First Botany Intensive Wrinkle Free Anti Aging Eye Cream arrived at my door and I excitably opened the package. The box itself looks very medical-grade, comes sealed and contains and expiration date & lot number. Directions clearly stated to gently pat a small amount around the eye area twice daily. Simple enough. I unsealed the box to take a closer look.



The size is exactly what I expected and fit nicely into my hand. I removed the cap top to reveal a handy little pump applicator.



Later on that evening, after I washed my face and patted dry, I pressed the pump down fully and noticed a lot comes out at one time. You can easily get by with half a pump and have enough to apply to both eyes. The cream itself is white, feels smooth, I wouldn't call it greasy, but mildly lotion-like. It has a pleasant smell, slightly sweet. I blended it in with my ring finger from my inner eye towards my crows feet, slightly upward. First Botany Intensive Wrinkle Free Anti Aging Eye Cream dries well, but leaves the skin feeling supple. I then continue on to use a moisturizer for the rest of my face and neck.

After a week of continued use, twice a day, I haven't noticed any wrinkle or dark circle improvement as of yet. What I have observed is that when I apply my concealer/eye brightener it goes on smoother and doesn't clump into my fine lines. That alone made me feel like this product was doing something. This isn't an over-night miracle worker, but with long term use, I hope to see some changes.

I think it's worthy enough to note that my adult son has eczema and gets dry patches on his eye lids, going up to his brow line. He's started using this eye cream and there has been a significant calming of the skin. I think it's safe to say since neither of us have had any irritation from this product, it's great for sensitive skin.

PROS: sensitive skin friendly, pleasant smell, seems to moisturize the eye area well
CONS: not an instant fix
