Thoughts: When I heard this product is a 2-n-1 moisturizer and eye cream, I was sold. When I was young, I felt like I had so much time. Now that I'm older, I'm having problem finding time to do a lot of things I want to do. If this can shorten my time with daily skincare and spent that extra time in other things, I'm willing to try.
Here's a closer look at the top of the moisturizer/eye cream.
Here's a closer look at the hole where the moisturizer/eye cream dispenses. You push down the whole top area for it to dispense.
Here's a swatch of the moisturizer/eye cream on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a slight scent. It's so light that I can hardly distinguish the smell. I just sniffed the product and it's still light. If you're not into fragrance, this might be a good one. Secondly, I like the packaging. The design and style of packaging makes it look high-end. It's unique but I have used a packaging like this in the past. I like that you push the top to dispense the cream out of the hole. For one thing, it's sanitary-safe. I don't have to dig my fingers into the product, as well as, the product isn't fully open to air. It'll keep the product more active than chemically open to oxidize with the air. Another thing I have full control of how much quantity I pump. I can push just a little for the eyes or pump all the way through for my entire face and neck. It is up to the individual. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. It's not made out of cheap plastic. The plastic is strong and there's no scratches, finger marks, and so on. Also at the bottom, you can see the bottom of the inside move up every time you pump. It might not be a big deal but I like seeing product disappear. I feel productive. To be honest, I wasn't like this until I became a blogger. Since I have so many products, I like seeing my products used. It's all mental. Anyways, the top is also sturdy. The cap is sturdy and I can feel a tight closure when I open/close the cap. I cannot see it come off or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. Third, the consistency is medium. It's not thin like a lotion and it's not thick like a cream. It's a perfect consistency. This will be great for all skin types. It might be too thin for my super dry skin during the winter but I'm not 100% sure until I try it. It's a great consistency for my summer/fall season. Before I talk more about the product on my skin, I've been using it as both moisturizer and eye cream. It's been several weeks since I've been using it. It's really easy to use. The website recommend patting around the eye area. I pat quickly around the eyes and then the rest of the face and neck. The website also recommends using this product on your hands but I haven't tried it. My skin absorbs this product quickly. As soon as I pat my face, within seconds it's absorbed. It leaves a nice, smooth, soft texture with no oil and dewiness. Once I apply during the morning, it's good enough for the entire day until I do my night time skin care routine. Fourth, this product contains peptides of Matrixyl 3000. If you are like me, this doesn't make sense. I will write what was written on the paper inside the packaging. "Matrixyl 3000 has been proven to be efficient for anti-aging. New findings confirm that it can reverse photo-aging by repairing UV damage. It achieves this effect by repairing the papillary dermis, which is located between the inner (dermis) and outer (epidermis) layers of skin. The combined effect of Matrixyl 3000 and our naturally active ingredients, help to bind moisture to the skin for a firm, soft and beautiful appearance." I definitely agree it moisturizes my skin. I haven't seen dry patches once using this product. Not only that my skin which includes around my eyes looks more youthful and alive. When my skin is hydrated, I noticed less fine lines. When it comes to dark circle, I never really had bad ones to start with. It's either slightly there or not at all. Since my skin has been hydrated, the slightly dark circle isn't noticeable. I love what it has done for my skin. Lastly, I'm glad I got to use this product. It has eliminated an extra step in my skin care routine that I can spend on something else. I highly recommend trying this product!
