[REVIEW] Oriflame Optimals Seeing is Believing Multi benefits Eye Cream

I have been getting plenty of sleep lately, but I noticed that my under eye circles and puffiness are still present. I wonder why, so I decided to find an eye cream to reduce or even eliminate those annoying panda eyes. I first chose the Vitamin C eye cream from The Body Shop, but experienced a stinging sensation after 1 minute of using it. I then stumbled on to Olay's Regenerist Eye Lifting serum, but left it because it tears up my eyes. In my desperate attempt to reduce my under eye circles, I tried on eye masks that contains CoQ10, but it brings no result. I looked for reviews at MUA for a good eye cream, but most of them are not sold in Jakarta. I nearly gave up when I saw Oriflame's Optimals line Multi Benefits Eye Cream.

Oriflame Optimals Seeing is Believing Multi benefits Eye Cream

Skin around the eye area is delicate and sensitive. Constant squinting, smiling and blinking plus the negative effects of late nights, dryness, environmental influences and time means that fine lines show up around the eyes first.

Optimals Seeing is Believing is a specific multi-benefit cream that provides ideal solutions to the eye area, based on technical and natural ingredients:
* 'D-Circle' complex helps reduce eye puffs and brightens dark circles
* Wheat Protein with hydrating, smoothening and firming effects
* Eyebright extract helps soften under eye shadows

This light cream gel has moisturising and smoothening properties and is quickly absorbed.

Results: It works to help de-puff, soothe and smooth out fine lines. Eyes appear brighter, shadows, and dark circles are diminished.
Fragrance free.

Usage: Apply day and night gently around the entire eye area. Avoid direct contact with eyes. If any discomfort is experienced, discontinue use.

The ingredients list is so very long with really complicated words, so I'll try to find it around the web.

For all skin types
15 mL/ 0.5 fl oz

  • It's inexpensive as it only cost Rp130000,-.
  • A little goes a long way in terms of application.
  • It's easy to get. They don't sell it in stores, but Oriflame products are easily obtained via Facebook, Kaskus, or any other forums.
  • The texture is light and doesn't end up sticky or greasy on my under eye area.
  • It doesn't sting or bring my eyes to tears
  • It helps in reducing my puffy eyes within 2 weeks of regular use.
  • The shadow under my eyes have slightly reduced within 3 weeks time, with regular use, day and night
  • I have only been using this for a month, but it hasn't even reduced to 1/4 of the tub!
  • The cream colour is blue, which I totally love! It's because I love the colour blue =p

  • I wish it has a pump. I have this thing with pumps as this helps in guess-timating the amount needed every application
The swatch. It's really creamy, yet light on the skin.

Overall, I would recommend this product to those suffering from mild to moderate undereye circles, just because I don't know whether or not it would work on people with severe panda eyes. Note that I did not only use this product to help eliminate my panda eyes, but I also try to get enough sleep every night. I must say that I use this product religiously every morning and night for almost a month now. I really love this product and was thinking of buying a second tub, but I haven't finish the first one. Geez, what a dilemma..

What it looks like after I've used it for a month. It's still plenty!
