Review | NEW Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream
This is what it says on the Clinique website:
A pep rush for eyes. Just 3 seconds to look wide awake, refreshed. Hydrates, brightens, perks you up. Its cool touch and de-puffing tip help keep eyes looking fresh. Smooths the way for makeup, too. Have it on hand. Ophthalmologist Tested.
First of all I have to say that I think the packaging on this eye-cream is very unique, and it feels quite nice and high-end, but I do find that the ball thing is a little bit hard to pull up sometimes. And also, when you push the ‘ball’ back down again to close it, some of the product will squirt out, so I would suggest holding over the hole when you close it so you don’t get the product everywhere.
Now as far as the eye cream it self I find that it is very lightweight, and it does sink in to skin very nicely, and I haven’t had any issues with it leaving a film under my eyes.
But with this said, I don’t know if this is anything special.
I mean, I do think it works just as well as other eye creams as far as hydration goes. At least I think it feels quite simular to others that I’ve tried previously.
However, even though I think that it makes my under eyes look a bit more awake when I first apply it, I’m not sure if that’s because it really does brighten my under eyes, or if it’s simply because my skin wakes up a bit after my morning routine.
But either way I do think that this is a good eye cream, and it does work well with makeup on top, so I do think that it’s worth it, even though I’m not quite sure it does exactly what it claims to do. But if you’re on a budget you can find cheaper alternatives as far as hydration goes, so that’s sometimes to keep in mind if you were thinking of trying this because it is a bit up there in price.
I got mine from Kicks for 225nok.
