Usually when testing a skin product, it can be very hard to see results as with skin, things can take a long time and change so gradually it's not always obvious. So I was surprised and delighted when only a week after using this product I noticed a fading of the lines under my eyes. After two weeks of daily and nightly use, the difference was apparent (as can be seen in my pictures).
To me this product is the real deal. It's not a magic wand, your lines won't vanish instantly, but there is a marked and visible difference.
It's super easy to apply and absorbs very quickly. You can also choose to apply with your finger or the applicator. I prefer the applicator as it means I don't have to wash my hands again after application.
Protip: When appying, hold the tube and applicator horizontal (sideways) and rub gently in a horizontal line. If you apply it with the tube vertical, the ends of the applicator get gunked up and I thought this was a flaw with the packaging until I turned it sideways and realised it works perfectly that way.
The only downside to this product is the smell, which I'm not a fan of. I've been scent sensitive for some time though and products rarely please me when it comes to scent. Thankfully though, the smell of this doesn't linger and once on your face, can't even be smelt anymore. Hallelujah!
The biggest pro of this cream is that apart from being all natural, it's specifically designed to be used around eyes. So many beauty products can't be used near the eyes and as I just turned 30, I only have fine lines around my eyes. For ages, I'd given up on treating them, so I'm thrilled to find a product that works.
- All natural.
- Reduces eye congestion and dark circles.
- Actually fades lines which considering the amount of products that claim this and don't follow through, is amazing!
- Great value.
- Easy to apply.
- Uses only a small amount of product (half a pump is generous enough for both eyes.)
- Smell is not to everyone's taste.
I would 100% buy this product again, it has a good price and basically, it works. My lines are reduced and I even noticed less congestion around my eyes (though there were still a couple of days I had bad congestion, but it was still a massive improvement for me.)

One of the first things I notice was the applicator. You squeeze a tiny dot out underneath each eye, and can rub with either your finger, or the applicator tip. I prefer using my finger, as I am able to blend in the cream into the corners and sides of my eyes easier. The applicator tip, however, is smooth and soft enough to use if this is your preference.
The cream is a nice medium thickness white cream, and one of the first things you will notice, is that it smells like chocolate! A nice light chocolate scent. I suppose that is where the name "Sweetsations" comes from.
I apply it in the morning routine and my nightly routine for best results.
What I have noticed, is that underneath my eyes has become increasingly lighter - as in, I do not look like a walking zombie when I am not wearing makeup. Normally I need to blend in cover up underneath my eyes to help with the darkness, otherwise I look quite fatigued under the eyes.
It has also started helping out with the puffiness underneath my eyes as well.
I normally apply this cream underneath my eyes prior to using my regular all over face moisturizer. It takes only a minute or two to dry into my skin.
After my experience with this eye cream, I am really looking forward to trying out Sweetsensation's Face Mask and Sun Screen!
I feel SO much better when I use skin products with an ingredient list that I can understand (aka natural ingredients).
