Pros: a little goes a long way, bright packaging, design, fast absorb, fights first wrinkles, instant hydration, refreshes my look
Cons: pricey

🌸🌸🌸 Greetings guys! 🌸🌸🌸

Based on my own experience I know that we usually neglect the under eye area skin care. Unfortunately when it’s cold outside my skin, as well as under eye skin, becomes extremely dry. And I have no choice but to take proper care of it.


I found a mini sized package of the Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream in a High Impact set, where I also liked the mascara very much.


I’ve been testing this cream for a few weeks and now I’m finally ready to share my thoughts of it with you.



1.Packaging. The small squeeze tube is bright and eye catching. ☀️💐 I appreciate that the applicator glides unto my skin spreading the product evenly under my eyes. The applicator is very good as it has never scratched or damaged my skin. It’s subjective but still I prefer to apply eye creams with my fingertips.


The packaging is tiny so there isn’t a lot of information given:


2. Size: 15ml (0.5 oz) my mini is 3ml


3. Made in Belgium


5. Consistency it’s gel-like but I prefer creamy textures as I guess that they sink in better.




Attention! The product doesn’t promise the anti-age, dark circles correction or instant wrinkles disappearing, nothing like that. Be realistic towards the eye cream. Smile This product is aimed at making you look wide awake and refreshed.





This lightweight eye cream provides a rush of hydration and instant brightening so you look and feel refreshed, wide awake, and ready for anything in as little as three seconds. Its cool touch and de-puffing tip help keep eyes looking fresh while smoothing the way for makeup. Plus, its peptides help support natural collagen reserves that can be threatened by stress, fatigue, and lack of sleep—the tell-tale signs of your busy life.

Does the product do what it promises? My answer is yes!


My dry skin really likes this eye cream as it gives good moisture and deprives tightening feelings as a result of wrinkles appearing.

My under eye skin looks very refreshed and hydrated. The cream doesn’t sink in immediately, creating a dewy finish.


✔️ By the way, I want to advise you always apply your concealer over the eye cream, as first of all concealers tend to dry out our skin and secondly the concealer will look way better if it’s applied over the eye cream as a base.

The Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream is ideal as eye make-up primer.



✔️ My skin feels comfortable when I apply this product. I’ve never experienced irritation or reddening when I wear it. I’ve never had any bad reaction trying all the Clinique products. That’s why I love this brand so much.


✔️The cream doesn’t leave any stickiness or greasy feel, even though it isn’t fast to absorb


✔️ It gives my skin a pleasant cooling effect


✔️ The product is unusual as it can be applied over make-up with fingers of course. Your make-up won’t travel down or smudge. On the contrary you’ll look refreshed and wide awake.


8. The spending is very low. I’ve been using my mini for a month already and there’s still stuff left in a tube. The tiniest drop is enough for both eyes. A full sized product will last you forever Smile


9. I want to draw your attention to the fact that this cream will not suit aging skin, as aging skin requires some better moisture and nourishing components. But before you are 30 I think this product will be great for you.



After shoots:



Price: $26.50. I presume that’s a reasonable price for the quality.


Overall: I’m absolutely delighted with the result I get from this product. Now I’m planning to buy a full sized tube and continue using the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. Highly recommended!

My cat will agree! Smile


Be always beautiful and positive, my dear readers! 🌸💐

✨✨ Thanks for the attention!✨✨
