Many women have that one beauty woe that they wish they could fix, or at least help, and that beauty woe for me is puffy eyes. Whether I have a great nights rest or not, those pesky puffy bags pop up and make me look more tired than I really am. Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum is designed to be a depuffing eye massage roller that soothes and cools upon contact with your under eye area. So does this product do what it claims, or does it fall short?
Clinique All About Eyes Serum
Clinique All About Eyes Serum is a depuffing eye massage roller ball for your under eye area that claims to cool and comfort on contact. A swipe of this product refreshes, brightens, and soothes tired, dark-circled eyes.
As a woman with puffy under eye bags, I have tried everything under the sun to attempt to get this puffiness to go down: drinking tons of water, eye creams, eye gels, and roller balls. I did a review on the Garnier Nutritioniste version of this product here on Beauty Gala, but after trying this Clinique roller ball, I am happy to report I will not be going back.
One thing about roller ball depuffing products are that they often have synthetic ingredients (such as fragrance) in them, which further irritate the under eye area, causing more puffiness. The under eye skin is so thin and sensitive that even the slightest reaction or irritation to a product can create red, itchy, swollen eyes. Clinique All About Eyes Serum is 100% fragrance free, and is allergy tested, which made me feel really good about purchasing this product. The product comes with a sturdy “grip” near the roller ball where you can comfortably place your fingers so you can swipe the product on your under eye area.
Simply swipe the product back and forth once or twice, and do the same to the other eye. Instantly, the metal roller ball felt cool and refreshing underneath my eyes. The serum felt refreshing, soft, and soothing, without feeling like it was burning. One problem I typically have with roller ball formulas, is that they will actually be so “cooling” that they will burn my under eye area. This was the equivalent to putting cucumber slices straight from the refrigerator onto your eyes…soothing, without the irritation.
The serum will come out of the roller ball onto your under eye area, and you will see a reduction in your puffiness almost immediately. Within five minutes, my extreme allergy-induced puffiness was reduced. It did not completely diminish the puffiness, but it definitely helped the fluid that was sitting underneath my eyes to disappear, and I felt that my under eye area looked brighter and more refreshed.
What I also like about this product is that it moisturizes the under eye area. Between applying makeup under my eyes, any itching or rubbing during the day (I know – bad!), I need all the moisture I can get to that area. My under eye area felt and looked visibly smoother and more hydrated after I applied this. What I love most is that Clinique All About Eyes Serum can be toted around in your purse, your gym bag, or your makeup bag without taking up much room at all. I have been tossing this into my purse, and using it underneath my eye area after a long day of working and driving. It is my go to perk up trick!
Bottom line: If you’re someone who has concerns about under eye puffiness, and you are looking for a soothing, cooling, refreshing product for your under eye area that will make a difference, without the irritation or burn, this is the product for you. The only perceivable downside to this product is the price tag.
Clinique All About Eyes Serum retails for $25.50 at your local Sephora, department stores, and other high end retailers. You can also browse and purchase this product online by clicking below:
