Clinique All About Eyes Rich


As a shift worker, I have noticed that the eye area tends to be the most sensitive to long and pretty irregular working hours. Night shifts definitely make things worse and if you're genetically predisposed to have dark circles, baggy skin or dry patches – keeping up a fresh and youthful appearance becomes an almost unattainable dream.

As far as eye creams go, I'm pretty realistic about my expectations – nothing can replace a good night's rest, easy lifestlye and a good diet which combined with physical activity does the entire body good (not just skin). I do expect my eye creams to be really nourishing though but not oily so they can serve as a great eye makeup base (concealers are my best friends!). And I have quite a dry eye area so dehydration lines tend to be my main concern and the main objective for any eye cream to address. Until recently, the one I was most happy with was the Nuxe Anti-Fatigue Moisturizing Eye Cream (here) but I was also rather satisfied with Caudalie Vinosource SOS Morning Eye Rescue (here) and Afrodita Cosmetics Hydra Thermal Eye Cream (here) – both perfect for summertime with their lightweight formulas.

And even though I have read a lot about Clinique All About Eyes Rich (15ml | $32) never have I thought that it would be the solution for all of my problems. It looks the part with the very luxurious packaging. Jar isn't the ideal storage but due to the thickness of this cream I can understand why a tube or a pump wasn't an alternative. 

Being a rather thick eye cream a little goes a long way – justification for a high price tag. I love how creamy and comfortable it is, making it ideal for day and night use. Makeup applies wonderfully over it and dehydration lines get literally erased. Skin looks much better, more rested, fresh and youthful. It softens the eye area so well – even the ritual of applying it feels relaxing and you can just sense that it does something. Packed with shea butter, Vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and a bit of sillicones – it probably does.

It hasn't irritated my eyes, never made them water nor has it produced any milia (I am prone to it). It hasn't affected the dark under-eye shadows (no eye cream can) but as far as everything else goes – we have a winner! All there is left for me to see is shall it have a more intense effect after a year-long (or even longer) use.

  • Kao smjenski radnik primjetila sam da je okoloocno podrucje mozda i najosjetljiviji dio lica koji prvi pokaze posljedice napornih, dugih radnih sati te neredovnog sna. Nocne smjene dodatno pogorsavaju stvari i ako ste jos genetski predisponirani da imate tamne kolutove, vrecice ispod ociju ili jednostavno suhu kozu – odrzavanje svjezeg i mladolikog izgleda utoliko postaje teze.
  • Po pitanju okoloocnih kremica, uvijek sam imala realisticna ocekivanja – nista nece moci zamijeniti redovan san, uredan zivot i efekat koji pravilna ishrana uz fizicku aktivnost ima na cijeli organizam (ne samo na kozu). Ono sto pak ocekujem od kremica jeste da budu uistinu hranljive ali ne masne tako da sluze i kao efektna baza za sminku (od korektora ne mogu i ne zelim da se odricem!). Koza oko i ispod ociju mi je prilicno isusena tako da su borice od dehidracije nesto sto zelim ublaziti i one bi bile glavni problem koji zelim kremicama tretirati. Do nedavno mi je apsolutni favorit bila Nuxe Anti-Fatigue hidratantna kremica (recenzirana ovdje) ali su mi dobre bile Caudalie Vinosource SOS Morning Eye Rescue (recenzija) i Afrodita Cosmetics Hydra Thermal okoloocna (recenzija) – obje jako fine za koristenje tokom ljeta zbog lagane, nemasne teksture.
  • Iako sam mnogo citala o Clinique All About Eyes Rich (15ml | cca 90KM) okoloocnoj kremici, iskreno ne bih pomislila da bi bas ona mogla biti ta za mene. Doduse, doista djeluje luksuzno iako teglica mozda nije idealno pakovanje. Donekle mogu razumjeti zasto bas teglica ako uzmem u obzir da je krema dosta gusta tako da tubica/ pumpica mozda nisu odgovarajuce.
  • Bas zato sto je ovo dosta gusta, bogata kremica potrebno je jako malo po koristenju – nekome ce to opravdati njenu visoku cijenu. Meni se dopalo sto je prijatna na kozi, nemam osjecaj da sloj kreme  ostaje na povrsini a koza je bas mekana i nahranjena. Meni odgovara kao dnevna ali nocna krema. Sminka se odlicno nanosi preko nje a mozda najbolje djeluje na linije dehidracije, sto je meni jako bitno. Efektno omeksava kozu – sam proces nanosenja je opsutajuci i imam dojam da krema zaista nesto radi sto je veoma moguce jer je bogata karite puterom, vitaminom E, hijaluronskom kiselinom ali sadrzi i silikone
  • Nije izazvala iritacije, crvenilo oka ni milia tackice (kojima sam sklona ako je krema premasna). Na tamne kolutove nije djelovala (ruku na srce, niti jedna krema tu nije pomogla) ali sto se svega ostalog tice – ovo je moj novi favorit! Ostaje da pratim hoce li koristenje od godinu ili duze imati neke znacajnije rezultate.

    Obožavam ovu kremicu te nakon što sam je koristila ni jedna druga mi nije dovoljno dobra 🙂 Cijena je po meni njezin najveći nedostatak, ali obično je kupujem na lookfantastic ili feelunique pa se uz nekakav popust stvarno isplati 😀

      Postoji dosta proizvoda (pogotovo preparativnih) koji se, barem meni, nisu pokazali dostojnim hype-a. Ova kremica nije jedan od njih posto me iskreno odusevila!
