Hope all of you are enjoying your days! We are also experiencing summers finally and find solace in pools and ice popsicles. Yay! However, summers also bring in sweaty hands, shining face and pops of blemishes on my skin apart from hell lot of urge to sleep all the time. 😛 I feel like sleeping all the time…Thankfully, I have a super active kid who never gives chances to take rest during the day. 😀 Anyway, recently I splurged on a new eye cream for a change and found it good for our skin with visible results (though there is no match for CeraVe Eye Repair Cream in any sense and it is my staple skin care product)! I noticed the SA going gaga over this Sephora Collection Total Age Defy Cream for Eyes and Lips and I decided to give it a try!

My Experience with Sephora Total Age Defy Cream for Eyes and Lips:
The cream comes in slightly heavy glass jar with safety lid and tight fit cap, I would have appreciated tube packaging, though. It does have a faint smell which is not at all bothering. Overall, I find it quite user friendly and travel friendly provided we keep it in its cardboard packaging!
Talking about cream, it seems luscious buttery in texture just perfect for winters, though summers are tricky especially for oily to combination skinned beauties, like me. However, I am impressed that it does not accentuate my oily, acne issues that too despite using it in hottest summers these days! Unlike my Cerave eye cream, it seems slightly thick and rich in texture which needs generous massage to sink in. Hence, we need tiniest amount of cream to avoid that dewy look.
Well, that’s not a problem for night time since it only gives me dewy skin unlike causing break outs so far, but it does bother me while grooming up for the day time look as I need powder touch ups. I think this cream will be too rich and hydrating for summers while I am saving it up for winter skin care when my skin needs more hydration and protection from dryness!
I am really impressed with its effective actions against dryness and puffiness after noticing results, though it is almost similar to that of my Cerave eye cream which retails for almost half the price of Sephora age defy eye cream. I did see considerable change in my crow’s feet lines and fine lines around eyes as they seem to be smoothened, not vanished though! We can use this cream around lips as well, but I cannot say anything about its effectiveness for lip area as I don’t need it for lifting up my skin, luckily!
Moreover, I believe that any good anti-ageing facial cream may take care of skin around lips, right? But, for eye area this cream is certainly good as it does hydrate our skin really well while we look well rested and youthful every morning. I think this eye cream is best when used at night unlike during day time probably dry skinned beauties might find it good for day time, but oily or combination skinned beauties like me should only consider it in night time skin care regimen.
I am pretty happy that it works so well on my skin irrespective of its rich texture and summer season, though I feel it is way pricey for same. Especially after using Cerave eye repair cream which hardly costs $11-13, I find this sephora cream too pricey. Not to forget Cerave eye cream gives almost similar results, I have been using it for a year and I won’t say Sephora Age Defy Cream did anything different to my skin!
So, for a change from my usual routine especially for winters, I would like to pick up Sephora Age Defy Cream anytime while my all time favorite is Cerave undoubtedly! I would definitely recommend this Sephora Cream to you all, it does work fine on every skin type just that it is over priced and we do get many great options below 30 dollars!
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Sephora Collection Total Age Defy Cream for Eyes and Lips:
• A rich and intense hydrating eye cream suitable for every skin type
• It is quite thick and luscious which takes time to sink in, but once it is set it does not give any greasy or oily look
• I wake up to well rested, youthful and problem free skin every morning irrespective of my late night schedules
• It does provide anti-ageing benefits after 2-3 weeks, but there are visible changes
• It does prevents onset of new fine lines apart from smoothing existing fine lines and crow’s feet
• It does not cause any breakouts or accentuate oily skin issues
• Best suitable for dry, normal skinned beauties all year round while it is a bliss for every skin type during winters
Cons of Sephora Collection Total Age Defy Cream for Eyes and Lips:
• Tricky for oily, combination skin in summers
• It does take time to sink in due to its luscious texture
• It gives dewy look to my skin which needs powder touch up for daytime matte look
• It seems overpriced
• Its heavy glass jar packaging might be tricky for travelling purposes
Well honestly, my only concern is the price especially after using Cerave Eye Cream, plus summers are not a good time for me to experiment with my skincare regime. Hence, I would like to proceed with my old (but gold) Cerave, as of now! If you are looking for pocket friendly and equally effective eye cream, then you should skip it. However, if you love to experiment with your skin care regimen irrespective of price and you need quality, you should check it out!
