I don't think you would need it on the inner corner of your eye, it's not a concealer or brightener. I do apply it on the entire outer and under eye area though. If you want a good product for inner eye, try YSL touche eclat.

We recommend gently applying a small amount by dabbing with your ring fingertip around the orbital bone beneath your eyes, extending out to the temples. Do not apply above the eye or on eyelids.

This plus a moisturizer?
Hi all, I've been using this for about 6 months and I LOVE it. However, I have been wondering if this should be used with an additional eye moisturizer, or if it is hydrating enough on its own. Thoughts? Thanks!

I personally have a basic routine where I just cleanse, tone, apply the Eye Hope Cream, and then a night time moisturizer or day time moisturizer with SPF all over my face. I try not to put too much stuff on my face and my eye area because you shouldn't have to. I find that the eye cream is sufficient enough in hydrating and strengthening the skin around the eyes. The routine works for me so good luck to you on finding something that suits you!

Don't know about Kinerase, but this doesn't sting, a little goes a long way ( I only need 1/2 a squirt to do both eyes!), and I haven't noticed it balling up. Just soaks in and does what it's supposed to do. Great product in my opinion.

I use mineral makeup and have been very happy with how this goes on under my makeup. You have to let it absorb for a few minutes, but then its fine. It stung slightly the first few times I used it and now it doesn't sting at all. I don't know how it compairs to Kinerase because I've never used that brand, but I'm pretty happy with Eye Hope.

I prefer the iclandic relief eye cream. It is cooling and refreshing and leaves my eye area feeling great. And I noticed after just 2 weeks that my under-eyes were brighter.

The eye hope did seem to brighten my under-eye area, but if you have sensitive skin or eyes I wouldn't recommend it. It seems to tingle and even sting my eyes. I had to return it and got the icelandic one instead. I see very similar results, without any of the irritation.

NO comparison. Skyn Iceland is great, but it was comparable to Clinique All About Eyes (or whatever it's called).. both were so-so. I didn't see the brightening effect Eye Hope had, and those two didn't get rid of puffiness nearly as effectively.. or quickly!!

answer 4
Hope seems to be gentler, the Skyn cream seems to produce an odd warming sensation on my (very sensitive) skin that I don't like much. Hope is also much richer, so if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you're better off with Skyn. Both seemed to make undereye makeup clump, so bear in mind that with either one, you should apply them well before attempting to put on makeup. Neither seemed to have a dramatic impact on dark circles or puffiness.

I think that if you feel heat or stinging like I did when using this product, the product most likely is harmful to the skin. After using this product a couple of times I found it harmed my skin creating more dryness and wrinkles under my eyes. Try a more gentle and natural eye cream like burt's bees naturally ageless line smoothing eye cream or burt's bees radiance eye cream.

I do not get that reaction when I apply this product. There could be something in the product that is stronger as the directions state NOT to use on your delicate eye lids.

I've used this product once and I remember it leaving a hot sensation around my eyes as well. I prefer Philosophy's other eye cream, Hope In A Tube, to this one... but I like a thicker feeling eye cream because I don't like the skin in that area to get dry and tight feeling.

This product didn't cause any milia or pore-clogging in my skin. I'm very sensitive to products (i.e. prone to getting clogged pores and milia), but this didn't cause any issues. It's a very, very light moisturizer though. Typically, you only get milia from more emolient creams.

When my Philosophy girl at Nordstrom gave me a (HUGE!) sample of this eye cream, she specifically told me to put it on my lids as well. Weird that the packaging says not to... It may be because it contains Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) which can cause irritation, sensitivity and/or excessive dryness, especially when used daily on delicate skin (i.e. eye lids!!) ;)
I think it depends on your skin and how sensitive you are to Vitamin A. Have you used other products containing Retinol? What were the results? My advice is to try it on your lids once a day for a week. If you don't experience any sensitivity or dryness, increase to 2X a day and go from there. But definitely stop using it on your lids if you notice any irritation.
