Perricone MD Advanced Eye Area Therapy Review

When I won Perricone MD Advanced Eye Area Therapy from a giveaway contest last month I was excited because I had wondered about this brand but couldn't bring myself to buy it at a price tag of $95.00.



I got my package in the mail went home and that night applied the eye cream as directed and boy was I in for a surprise... it stung... really bad though it went away after a minute it was still enough to make me uncomfortable. Keep in mind I don't generally have sensitive skin or have never experienced this type of sting from any other cream before. I thought to myself ok this is weird however maybe this means its working. I continued to use it for 2 weeks hoping it would be different with each use but it stung each and every time.

I went back to the pamphlet inside the big waste of space box and read it to see if it said anything about stinging. I couldn't find anything so I hit the Internet to read reviews and was shocked when after reading about 10 reviews no one mentioned anything about the burning/stinging sensation so perhaps I got a bad batch?



Whats weird is that it doesn't sting if I apply it anywhere but under my eyes. The consistency and texture of this eye cream is pretty much like all others, a little goes a long way and it isn't super thick which is nice.



Either way I didn't notice any big difference in my under eye area with fine lines or dark circles which for the $95 they are asking for this product I was expecting to see. I discontinued use as the stinging was really bothering me and have emailed the company to ask if this is normal or what they suggest.


What I liked:
  • the fact that it is paraben free
  • the first ingredient listed is Aqua which is always good.
What I disliked:
  • burning/stinging feeling upon application
  • size of the box for such a small product (waste of materials in my opinion)
  • size of product - the bottle is only 15ml
  • the cost of $95.00
Overall I would be willing to give this product another chance if indeed I did get a bad batch and it was replaced with one that didn't sting anymore but I think it would have to promise to totally make my under eye circles disappear and help me lose 15lbs before I would spend $95.00usd of my hard earned money on this product!
Pin It!

wow. that's insane and for that price? after i had xavier, i had really bad circles from lack of sleep.. i got vitamin k from the j.a.s.o.n brand.. worked miracles. i don't know why im not using it now.. but they sell them in those nutrition stores for $14. i researched about getting rid of dark circles and Vitamin K came up a lot.

Now I just reminded myself to go out and buy it.
