Questions & Answers for Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter™ Eye Treatment

Question
Is this product enough moisture by itself?
This product is called a "treatment", so is it considered an add-on product to a skincare regime or is it moisturizing enough to be a stand-alone eye cream?

I believe you can use it as a stand-alone eye cream however, I wanted something with a bit more moisture.

I think it serves perfectly well as a stand alone eye cream. It might be labeled as a treatment to suggest it does more than just protect. It's very moisturizing without being gloppy, sticky or oily.

Question
Does this eye cream contain shimmery sparkles or glitter?
One of the reviews I've read for this product stated that she noticed that this particular eye cream contained shimmery glitter like particles when she took a closer look after applying it on her hand. Is this true?

There is absolutely no sparkly ingredients to this product. The one reason I love this so much is that it doesn't irritate my eyes. Honestly, this is the best eye cream i ever used. It doesn't sting when applying nor does it irratate my eyes!

The scent is faint, and hard to describe. I can only smell it when I make an effort to. The scent is undetectable once applied. I will say that it smells nothing like the cooking oil scent of the maracuja oil.

I use the eye cream both at night and in the morning. I use it before I apply my makeup in the morning. It absorbs quickly so it doesn't cause my concealer to cake at all. I use it on the upper lids as well and it really helps smooth them out.

Does this product help diminish dark circles permanently or temporarily?

Actually I've read (not sure where) that Vitamin C is good for day especially. Something about protecting the skin from free radicals or something. I'm not sure, but I definitely use this in the morning. I also use it at night in addition to a retinol cream so I don't think you NEED to buy a different eye product for nighttime, but you may want to if you want to add something with other benefits (like retinol).

I think you may be a little young for this product, but visit your local sephora an ask for a sample. That way you can try it at home and judge for yourself if it feels comfortable or not. It's always about how a product feels, not what the age labels say :]

Yes, I wish I had it @ 15 :/ I've had dark circles all my life. Now that I'm older and I have wrinkles, sagging skin, and bags under my eyes, years later I find this. You're never too young to fight aging. Like it or not, even in teenage years you age everyday, so fight it every step of the way!

This is a good product for anyone at any age. The ingredients help brighten up the under-eye area while keeping the skin hydrated and helping with preventing wrinkles or reducing current wrinkles. I started using eye creams when I was a teenager and I wish this product was available at that time, it's an excellent product.

I just cannot see anything in this product to irritate you. I myself am very sensitive and have horrible allergies all year, but this product is helping me. Maybe it's the oil? Some people cannot put any kind of oil on their face. If you have allergies...it can surely be that. Mine have been horrible. Good luck!

If used properly, the jar should last you at least 3 months. I use it morning and night, so if you only use it once a day, it should last a little longer.
