Review: Yes To Grapefruit – Eye Cream

I’m not one to purchase anti-aging products.

YTGThis dark circle correcting eye cream is the closest I’ve come. Yes To Grapefruit is a worldwide brand that, despite coming from Israel, is now as easy to acquire as taking a trip to your nearest pharmacy. I snagged this on a whim while running out for tissues. Glad for the cold to be over, I thought I’d now report what I’d found. A bit of good and bad.

YTG2I don’t have huge under-eye problems. My boyfriend, in fact, was quite insistent when I dropped this in the cart that it wasn’t something I needed. However, being inches from a mirror every morning grants me quite a good view. And while my eye area isn’t awful, it is something that I’d like to improve. That in mind, I was kind of hoping that for $13, this tiny little tube was going to be my miracle salvation. That wasn’t quite the case.

Here’s what I like:

Upon first use, I did notice a slight difference in skin pigmentation. In fact, almost immediately, my eye area began to look brighter. I was *astounded* with this change, and took it as cause to keep using it.

The product has a scent that is rather neutral to my senses; earthy, may be the right way to describe it. Licorice root is responsible for the smell, and while it won’t be for everyone, I found that it was for me.

YTG5The product comes in a squeeze tube that is easy to procure a tiny bit of product from. The cream itself is smooth and feels as though it should be hydrating. It absorbs easily into skin and leaves a light tingling sensation behind. This fades after a moment, and your skin will tighten lightly and take on a more youthful appearance. Sounds good so far, right?

Here’s what I didn’t like:

Drying under eye area and increased appearance of creases in makeup.

Limited effect/lasting power.

Worsened dark circles.

Unfortunately, this product works just above sub-par immediately after using it, and as punishment makes tired eyes a more prominent occurrence. After using this nearly a week, I can honestly say that other than adding unnecessary fragrance to my skin, it hasn’t done a thing. I suppose it’s nice to perk up your appearance if you’re leaving the house in a hurry; but I just don’t see a purpose for regular use of this item. I’m kind of disappointed, and I won’t be using it again.
