Question
The instructions indicate to place "under and around the eye area." Does this mean you can put on the lids? Just on the brow area? Thank you!

Hello,

I wouldn't suggest this product for sensitive skin at all. It has retinol in it which usually isn't recommended for sensitive skin. Try an eye cream without any retinol in it. Lancome makes great ones!

I am 57 years old and have all the symptoms you describe. I also have allergies and my eyes are sensitive, but it has not bothered my eyes at all, other than to make all those bad things, look better. Waaaaay better. It's not just something that kinda makes things look good, it really works well and it delivers. So feel free. I don't think it will bother your eyes.

I don't know, I had an allergic reaction to this and had to send it back. My under eye got so red, puffy and almost felt like it was burned. It took a good week for it to settle down and get back to normal. I can't really use anything with retinol, I've had much better luck with glycolic acid products, They don't seem to cause any reaction in my skin at all. Hope this helps.

Is it ok to use this during the day?

I use it day and night and have had no trouble whatsoever. I find it soothing. Of course, it's winter now and I haven't been in the sun. Usually the issue with Retin-A and retinol is that it exfoliates the skin a bit leaving it open to sun damage. I think that's why they warn not to use in the day, but I haven't had any problem.

I used this once a day at night, but had a reaction to it so had to send it back. Made my under eye so red and puffy and felt like it was burned. Can't use retinol products, was hoping. Took a good week to get my eye area back to normal.....I think 2 times a day is overkill myself, even if I could have used it. I'll just stick to my nightly face cream and continue to use it under my eyes.

It's a retinoid not a retinol - most of the retinoids are OK to use in daytime because there is so little of it at a really low % in it so you can use it in the daytime. I agree, I have never found any spf that I can wear around my eyes - they all end up burning my eyes and making them water.

Should I stip using due to irritation
I have experienced dry skin, flaky skin, a bit of tingling and stinging under my eyes from using this product. I have heard that you shouldn't stop for these reasons, that your skin simply has to get used to it. Should I stop using it, or keep with it?

I disagree with the advice you were given. I've tried other eye products in the past that have stung & I stopped using them or altered the way I use them...not a good sign. I personally love this Philosophy product and find it mild and smooth and moisturizing. My suggestion to you if you're experiencing some irritation with it is to take a few days off (at least 3)...it's really important to listen to your body. Then, try re-introducing it but only use it directly under your eye and/or on the brow bone area....and NOT near the corners of your eye (these I find are most sensitive). If application in these areas works without irritation, later try applying just beyond the outer corner of your eye (leaving a space that's product-free just next to your eye)...this way you get the benefit on any crows feet/prevent crows feet but avoid the sensitive area. Hope that helps.

I experienced similar things as well. The tingling is just the retinoids being absorbed into your skin, that feeling subsided within 2 minutes for me. I noticed some dryness on the tops of my cheekbones and I just used my clarsonic to gently exfoliate it and apply moisturizer. I think if you only use the cream a few times during the week instead of every day, gently exfoliate once a week, and moisturize you should be good!! I hope this helps!

I would also like to add that with any retinoid product you may experience slight irritation when first using it, which is normal. Use every other day or every few days until your skin acclimates. Begin using daily once you no longer experience any sensation.

As a user of this product, I suspect you will see good results as it targets those issues for me. My eyelids are less "crepe-y", more supple and the puffiness under my eyes has been reduced. I have been using this product for about 2 months. I have tried other retinoid products and haven't preferred any as much as this one. This is a very hydrating, smoothing product, in my opinion. I still pair it with a moisturizer, and SPF during the day is absolutely necessary with any retinoid product.

I have received 2 deluxe sized samples of this eye cream with purchases I made with Sephora. I have only used this product twice, and then ended up giving it away. I did not like the texture of the cream (if I remember correctly, it's silicone or waxy feeling). It also irritated and burned my eyes. So maybe it just isn't the product for me personally. Not sure.

My skin does not get used to irritation. This is not an anti-acne product so you're skin reaction is likely allergic. I would stop use and find another product that does not cause irritation. For eye cream there should be no negative impact. The area around the eyes is too sensitive.
