I have been away from IMBB for quite some time now and it feels real good to be back. The product I am reviewing today is Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream with real gold micro particles. I have used Himalaya Eye Cream, Aroma Magic Almond Eye Cream and Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Under Eye Cream in the past. I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them and decided to try this one. In fact, I had a super disastrous, horrible experience with the Neutrogena Eye cream – my under eye area became red, sensitive, and super irritated and when I discontinued using it, the under eye area was dark and discolored for months together. It took a lot of time, efforts and agony to get my under eye skin back to normal. Anyway, let’s proceed with the review for this under eye cream.
Rs. 599 for 15 ml.
Ponds Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream with real gold micro particles. Treat the first area that shows the dulling signs of aging. Infused with real gold micro particles, this luxurious cream refreshes tired eyes, diminishes puffiness and look of dark circles to make your eyes look instantly brighter and younger. Use twice daily, for eyes that look brighter and full of youthful radiance.
How to enjoy a younger looking, brighter, more radiant eye area:
Dot small amounts on under eye area and gently spread outwards.
My Experience with Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream:
This eye cream, like all other products from the Pond’s Gold Radiance range comes in the trademark gold colored packaging (which made photographing super difficult). The cream comes in a pale gold pump bottle with a gold colored cap and nozzle. The pump dispenses very little quantity at a time, so the product is never wasted when dispensing. The cream itself is white in color and fragrance free. As instructed, I use this cream twice a day on my under eye area. It’s a very light cream, gets completely absorbed real fast and nice. It does not leave behind any greasiness, so it makes a great base for makeup as well. Also, as claimed, it definitely brightens up the eye area instantly. Also, though it does not work on puffiness as claimed, two months of usage has definitely made my under eye area look healthier.
The one thing I do not like much about this product are the tiny gold particles that are visible for some time. I don’t really mind it since the particles fade away within an hour or so and also it’s not really visible unless someone looks from real close. Many a times, this cream accidentally goes inside my eyes and makes them watery. Doesn’t sting, but yes, causes some discomfort. Also, I don’t have severe dark circles, but nevertheless, my under eye area is a couple of shades darker than the rest of my face. Though application of this cream does make the under eye area look brighter and slightly lighter, it hasn’t really worked in completely clearing the dark circles. One more thing I have to mention, I have a couple of fine lines under my eyes and it hasn’t really worked on it (anyway, the product doesn’t claim to work on fine lines).
A very small quantity is required for one time use and hence this one bottle of 15 ml will last you a very long time. I have been using this cream since almost two months now and still using it, but I have no clue how much product is left in the bottle since the bottle is completely opaque.
Pros of Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream:
- Beautiful and attractive packaging.
- Pump dispenser, zero wastage.
- Fragrance free.
- Very light consistency, gets absorbed completely and instantly, no stretchy or greasy feeling.
- Can serve as a good base for makeup since it’s completely non greasy.
- Makes under eye area brighter instantly and with continued usage, you will see some difference in the under eye area.
Cons of Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream:
- Slightly expensive.
- Opaque bottle, so no way to know how much product is there in the bottle.
- Does not work on puffiness as claimed.
- Causes discomfort if it gets into the eyes (it does warn you to not get the product in your eyes).
- Though this cream makes the under eye area brighter, does not really work on dark circles.
- Does not work on fine lines (doesn’t claim to do that either, but just for your information).
