Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream Review
The following product review is of Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream. The manufacturer claims that this eye cream will deliver instant results and is formulated to reduce the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles, and puffy eyes. Can this product fulfill these claims? Is this the best anti-aging eye cream available on the market? This review will examine various aspects of the product, as well as the customer service provided, in order to answer those questions.
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
- Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4
- Titanium Dioxide
- C13-14 Isoparaffin
Glycerin is a hydrating and moisturizing agent often included in skincare products. Dimethicone also creates a hydrating barrier on the skin which aids in retaining moisture. Vitamin B3 helps to restore skin cells, brightening complexion while reducing signs of aging like fine lines. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 supplies provide essential amino acids which support the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibroblasts, firming skin while decreasing the appearance of wrinkles. Titanium Dioxide protects the skin from the harmful effects of UVB and UVA radiation. This formula lacks the support of clinically proven patented ingredients such as elasticity-improving Pronalen Fruit Acids AHA-50, bags and puffiness-reducing Eyeliss – Sederma, and wrinkle-reducing SYN-EYE. The lack thereof makes us question the quality and efficacy of this product. Furthermore, it is very concerning to note that this formula includes C13-14 Isoparaffin, an inactive thickening agent, and Isopropyl, a defatting agent that has been known to cause severely harmful side effects.
Olay suggests that customers should apply this product in the morning and evening – after cleansing the skin. To apply, use a small amount and massage it under the eyes, on the outer corners, and on eyelids until completely absorbed. There are no concentrations of the active ingredients and, therefore, we cannot say if this product will be effective or not. Furthermore, the inclusion of the harmful Isopropyl mentioned above is a safety concern.
Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream can be bought directly from the manufacturer’s website for $29.99. There is no information about the volume of the product, therefore, we are uncertain if this price delivers value or not. There are no discounts or bulk offers available to encourage long-term use.
It is unfortunate to note that the manufacturer does not clearly advertise a guarantee. Upon further research, we were able to find out that there is a 30-day return policy. However, the policy is vague as it omits important information such as the extent of the refund or if partially used product qualify. When researching customer reviews, we found many complaints that the product did not deliver on its claims.
Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream Review – The Bottom Line
Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream has a variety of ingredients that may serve beneficial in delivering on some of the manufacturer’s claims. Although, the absence of patented ingredients makes us question the extent of the benefits delivered – especially when compared to competitor brands so the market. Whatsmore, it’s highly concerning that the formula contains an ingredient that may result in severely harmful side effects. We are uncertain if the price delivers value as there is no volume to the product. While there is a guarantee, it was difficult to find and is incomplete. These reasons, as well as negative customer reviews, is why we do not recommend this product as the best anti-aging eye cream available on the market.
