Thoughts: I was really excited to try this eye cream. I tend to like creamy eye creams. For some reason, I feel like it works better on my dry skin.
Here's a closer look inside the pot.
Here's a swatch of the eye cream on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. It's also possible there was a slight scent in the beginning and I got used to it. I cannot remember. I just sniffed the product and the scent is very minimal. I had to smell it for several seconds to distinguish what it smells like. It's plant based. Secondly, the packaging is nice. I like how small it is but wide enough to dip my finger into the pot. I know it's not the most sanitary-safe dipping your finger into the product. Just make sure you wash your hands before dipping. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of thick plastic. The top is also sturdy. It's made out of plastic but you can feel a tight seal when you open and close. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For this reason, it's travel-friendly. Like I said it's small enough to throw in your purse, bag, and even your pocket. Third, the consistency is creamy and in-between medium to thick. It'll be better on normal to dry skin individuals, as well as, for people concern about wrinkles around the eyes. It might be too thick for oily skin. With that said, it's easy to use. I grab some amount on my finger and dab around the areas that I need thicker moisturization like my eyes, in-between my eyebrows, smile line, and forehead. After dabbing, I pat to make sure it gets absorbed into the skin. It takes several seconds. Plus, it's good to massage your skin while moisturizing. Since I don't really get facials, moisturizing is my time my skin gets some love. I try to massage as much as possible to give it some circulation. Once it's absorbed, I see a slight shiny, softer texture. It looks healthier but it's possible from the slight shininess. It's not greasy and extremely light-weight. Most eye creams don't improve after one usage, you need to continue to see improvements. The only improvement you see after first usage is the hydration, as well as, lesser dry patches. It does moisturize and like I said with time, it improves. My fine lines have improved which is a huge plus. I'm also preventing other wrinkles to show up. Lastly, I'm glad I got to try this product. It's a good one. I love the hydration I see around my eyes and smile line.

* No noticeable scent while applying.
* Small and wide packaging.
* Well-made and sturdy packaging.
* Sturdy top; feel a tight seal when you open and close.
* Travel-friendly.
* Creamy and in-between medium to thick consistency.
* Great for normal to dry skin individuals, as well as, preventing wrinkles.
* Easy to use.
* Absorbs into the skin after several seconds.
* Great time to massage skin.
* Leaves a slight shiny, softer texture.
* Not greasy.
* Light-weight.
* Hydrating.
* Fine lines has improved.
* Preventing future wrinkles.
* Cruelty-free.

* Not the most sanitary-safe if you dip your finger into the pot.

Would repurchase: Yes.
