REVIEW : Neutrogena Fine Fairness Eye Cream


Today i shall be reviewing the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Eye Cream. It comes with an outer white packaging, with the product in a white tube with grayish lid. It comes in a 15 g pack and is priced at INR 250.

Ingredients : Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Behenyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Silica, Magnesium Aspartate etc.

What Neutrogena claims about Neutrogena Fine Fairness Eye Cream? : Neutrogena Fine Fairness Eye Cream is a daily eye cream that helps energize skin around the eye area for brighter and fairer looking eyes.

·         Yeast extract – Helps reduce under eye puffiness.
·         Natural minerals – Helps condition and energize skin.
·         Mica – Visibly brightens appearance of eye areas.

For your best fairness results, use in conjuction with range of Neutrogena Fine Fairness products.

So the product is white in color and is creamy but absorbs really well. Generally my mother uses it once a day, and just after application we have noticed the skin around the eyes starts getting tighter and firmer and she can feel the skin getting taut. She does not have much under eye circles, so don’t really know if the brighter fairer under eye area claim is true of Neutrogena Fine Fairness Eye Cream. However, on puffiness of the eyes, this product fails to deliver any satisfactory results. It has got a light fragrance.

Since the eye area get so stretched after application of the eye cream, there is a chance of increased wrinkle formation. Overall, i am not at all happy with the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Eye Cream. Also the technique of pulling the skin to reduce under eye bags does not really help! I wont ever repurchase this product.
