Product Review: Elizabeth Arden Eye Pause & Effect Moisture Cream

Product Review: Elizabeth Arden Eye Pause & Effect Moisture Cream

A couple of weeks ago, I told you about Elizabeth Arden Intervene Eye Pause & Effect Eye Moisture Cream ($42). It's a new eye cream that uses an extract from the Narcissus Tazetta Bulb, which is supposed to slow down the signs of aging.

Now, here's the tricky thing about eye creams: You have to have faith in them, because realistically, you're not going to see immediate results. Instead, the real benefits of using an eye cream are going to show up five, ten, twenty years down the line. I use eye creams because I have faith that it's better to use them now than to wish I had used them down the line. They are truly the 401(k)s of skin care: You do a little work now to ensure happy times in the decades ahead.

So, back to EAEP&EMC. I'm not sure if is indeed "visibly slow[ing] down the effects of skin aging in the eye area," because I don't have any crows' feet yet. So, unfortunately, I can't tell you whether it makes a big impact on existing lines. What I can tell you is that the texture of this cream is wonderful. It's smooth and rich, but it manages to be that way without feeling heavy. A little bit goes a long way, and in the morning my under-eye area no longer feels dry. Because of texture alone, I think this would indeed be a fantastic cream for aging skin; it hydrates very well without weighing down skin. My only disappointment is that the eye cream is supposed to minimize dark circles, but I'm still reachin' for the concealer brush every day. But really, what eye cream will eliminate dark circles? EAEP&EMC is available now, so go forth and shop if that's your thing.

I am going to try the Peter Thomas Roth's product! It sounds great and I need it because I have hellacious undereye dark circles!

Try Peter Thomas Roth's Power K Eye Rescue. Its a bit pricey but if your looking for an eye cream that visibly firms, lifts AND reduces dark circles, (mine are usually non existent now) this would be it. I love this product. Swear by it! A little goes a long way and I was seeing results fast as well.

I've been using RoC retinol correxion eye cream..and I like that it keeps my eye area dewy. Just out of curiousity, what does everyone else use?

I know this is a good product but I don't think I will try it since I already found my miracle eye cream at 50% less that price
