Product Review: Aveeno Positively Ageless Lifting & Firming Eye Cream

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Aveeno
Name: Positively Ageless Lifting & Firming Eye Cream
Size: 15 mL
Approx. Price: $24.47-$30.99 / $19.99 USD

My usual eye creams have always been from the Clinique line, but I recently gave this eye cream from Aveeno a try.

Description from the Aveeno site states that this eye cream is "clinically shown to visibly lift and firm skin around the eyes. It is specially formulated with a proprietary firming technology and natural light diffusers to brighten the appearance of skin around the eyes, reduce the appearance of dark circles, and deliver smoother, more supple skin. Additional Product Benefits Include: gentle enough for sensitive skin."

To Purr About:
- light subtle fragrance that's barely noticeable
- light cream that isn't greasy but still feels rich
- absorbs quickly
- leaves my skin feeling quite soft
- convenient little pump bottle makes it easy to get only what you need

Claws Out:
- i've been using it for a couple of weeks now and there's no visible difference in my eye area
- doesn't leave my skin quite as smooth as my usual eye cream, so make up application is slightly hampered
- no SPF

Final Comments:
I would probably use this eye cream more at night instead of during the day because of 2 reasons - no SPF and also because the slightly "rubbery" feel doesn't make makeup application as easy as my normal eye cream (which does have SPF). But it is a nice rich eye cream and I love the convenience of the pump.

Rating (out of 5):

I'm not surprised. $30 is steep and drugstore brands are often times not as great as what you get out of Sephora. So... I wouldn't think it was worth the cash.
