Questions & Answers for Philosophy Hope In A Tube Eye & Lip Cream

Question
Will this product irritate my eyes?
I have very sensitive eyes, and the skin near the corner of my eyes gets very dry. I need an eye cream that will not irritate my eyes. Normally, I use Origins Eye Doctor, but I've heard such good things about this product I wanted to try it. I have read the skin may sting a little, and that doesn't really concern me as does my eye itself. Thank you!

answer 1
I have been using this product for a few years now and it has never bothered my eye area. I can also be sensitive to different eye creams, but I've never had an issue with this one. It is a cream consistency, and more on the thicker side so I put a small amount on my ring finger tip and then warm it up between my fingers and dab it on the under eye area. Occassionally if I get too close to my eye it will burn a little, but it doesn't happen often and doesn't burn very badly or last very long. Hope that helps.

I have never experinced stinging with this product. But like you the outer edges of my eyes tend to get a little dry and this did help. It also helped my skin firm up a bit I'm 26 so don't quite have crows feet yet but a little less taught and was happy to see the improvment. Didn't touch my dark circles.

No you would not apply moisturizer that you use on your face over or along with Hope in a Tube. Hope it a Tube is specifically formulated to treat the delicate eye area and can also be used around your lip area to prevent feathering or lines around the lips that tend to become more prominent as you get older.

When I first get out of the shower I apply Hope in Tube. For maximum absorption, you are supposed to apply any lotions, moisturizers, treatments, etc within 5 minutes of getting out of the shower when your pores are still open. Then after about 10 minutes, I apply Philosophy Eye Believe and then an under eye concealer. This combo seems to work perfectly for me to have the amount of moisture needed under my eyes (A. they get dry and B. Dry skin around your eyes is the best way to age yourself). Hope this help!

We recommend only applying eye cream and serum specifically formulated for the delicate skin around the eyes to your eye area. If Hope in a Tube does not provide enough hydration, try layering something like Eye Hope Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream underneath. Hope that helps!

After using this cream, I don't know if the dark circles have been reduced as a result of this or from changing my diet. I suspect it is due to diet changes. I would look to the "Eye Hope" product by Philosophy to reduce dark circles as the product description indicates that it does address this issue as a treatment.

I didn't get results for circles til I tried the wrinkle revenge by dermadoctor. But for light moisture, many prefer the Eye Hope for quick absorption. I only like Hope in a Tube for night because it bothered my eyes if it got in, and I didn't want that bothering me during the day.

I've used Hope In a Tube Eye & Lip cream and it's very, very hydrating. I have not tried the others, unfortunately, to be able to give you as well rounded an opinion as I'd like ... but I can tell you that it is slightly "shiny" after applied, which helps reflect light, and since using I've seen improvement in my dark circles because my skin is firmer.

A little makeup tip with this cream to really kiss those eye circles goodbye - due to its thickness, it provides a nice hydrating barrier under makeup. I use it under a dab of yellow cream concealer blended with base and a spot of light colored eye shadow on my inner eyelashes for a super "bright eyed" look.

Personally I have only tried two Philosophy eye creams - this one and Eye Hope. By far I would say go with Eye Hope. It leaves the eye area SO SO velvety and soft! It helped create a brighter eye and little by little I can see it working on fine lines. Go for this one. It is made to help with all four major concerns - dark circles, fine lines, dryness and puffiness, as where the other Philosophy eye creams are individually made for each eye concern (HIAT for moister, Eye Believe for fine lines, and Shadows for dark circles). Eye Hope combines all these to make a great eye cream! I hope this helped! My best skin care wishes!

I think, because of the richness and hydrating qualities of this cream, that it would be worth a try. When I first started using it, I used the cream on my eyes as directed. For my mouth, however, I used it well above the liplines (and below), on the lips, and rubbed it totally in. Not just on the face part, but really, really well on the mouth as well. I used it 3-5 times per day, whenever they felt the least bit dry, plus really well at night before going to bed. Now I only need to use it once in the a.m. and really well at bedtime. I am 62 yrs old and love the stuff. Hope you do too!

Don't invest in a mineral oil based product for anything!!! Look for plant-based oils, and mild AHA/BHA's to re-texture and smooth your skin. I have been trained in aesthetics since the 90's. Just my opinion.

I've never smoked, however, 20 years of drinking soft drinks through a straw left me with deep smoker's lines as I hit my 40's. The instructions state to apply the cream to the skin around the lip, but I've always applied it directly to the lips and around the lips. The cream eventually plumped the lips and the skin around the lips, pulling out the wrinkles by approximately 80 percent.

If I stop using the product, the lines return and I lose lip volume after about two weeks. Therefore, I apply the cream every night before bed. That said, it takes me nearly a year to use a full tube of Hope in a Tube Eye and Lip cream.
