Winter is not my favorite season because my skin suffers all the consequences. Every year a specific part of my body gets dry like crazy and this year my poor eyes were the unlucky ones. So I started looking for a good eye cream. I tried like 5 or 6 different brands including Dior, Caudalie, and Shiseido made me curious thanks to a Youtube beauty girl.
The most expensive I tried was the Dior eye cream that costs around $90 and it didn’t do anything for my eyes. So next was the Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resistance Intensive eye Countour Cream and the price is $55.
This is a thick cream that will leave your eyes super moisturized and looking good, I am more than sure that this cream will fix any dry eyes. A good example is my mom she had very dry eyes to the point to get cuts and flaking, she was using prescribed medication but one day I gave her one of the samples I got from this cream and her eyes got better right away. All the symptoms decreased and her eyes looked much better so for this reason I am a true believer of this cream.
My eyes were dry therefore my fine lines were more visible so I started using this and my eyes improved a lot. I only needed a tiny little portion of the cream and then dabbed it until it’s absorbed.
When I went to get the entire line, the Sephora lady told mi that all the products from this line of Shiseido are targeted for mature people and might not be suitable for me but the eye cream is great for my dry eyes. The cream makes my eyes look good, hydrated, and kinda works in the fine lines by making them look better but not hiding them. I don’t really believe that creams will fix fine lines but let’s give this cream the benefit of the doubt. The only bad part I don’t like about this cream is that when you apply it, it doesn’t absorb right away leaving your eyes a little greasy and probably giving you problems putting your eye makeup on so I recommend it only for night time like I do. For day time you can use your favorite eye cream that is not thick as the Shiseido one, I am using a caudalie eye cream that is light and absorbs fast and this was recommended by a Sephora employee.
The price of the Shiseido cream is $55 for 0.51 oz. for many of us it’s a little expensive but not crazy expensive as the Dior eye cream and mine, I got it in a set that includes a full size of the eye cream, 2 deluxe sample size creams, and an eye mask all for $35 because I got a $20 off coupon from Sephora. A great deal for a good eye cream that will last a long time since you don’t need as much.
Definitely I will recommend this cream to anyone with sensitive and dry eyes because it will solve your problems. Don’t forget to always ask for a sample first because the things that work for me might not for you and it’s better to try samples before spending $55 in something you maybe have to return later.
