Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream Review

I bought the Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream at the Shiseido Cosmetic Sale in Winter 2010 that I mentioned in this post. It contains 15ml of products and is available on the Sephora website for $52. Because I bought it at a cosmetic sale, I bought it for $36.



From the Shiseido website, it claims to be an ultra-rich age-defense eye cream that protects skin from a harsh, dehydrating environment* and dramatically minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and lines to promote a youthfully smooth, radiant look.

The Benefiance line is targeted towards mature women. I bought this eye cream because I'm a risk taker in the area of skincare. I like to try anything and everything skincare related. Usually, I would have no complains using a more mature line. However, this is one product I wouldn't recommend to anyone in their 20's.





The first time I used it, I was so surprised by how rich and thick this eye cream was. The eye creams I've tried in the past are usually lighter than face creams. I would imagine this eye cream being very effective for more mature women, especially ones who have issues with wrinkles and dark circles, and baggy eyes. Because of its richness, it's probably more suitable for night time use rather than morning. I've read reviews that it may cause milia for women in their 20's. And I can relate, when I use this product, I make sure I use a light hand because I feel like it's way too much for my eye area.

Price wise, it is quite expensive for 15ml of product. A little goes a long way because of how rich the product is. The packaging definitely feels luxurious and sturdy. Again, I feel like a lot of the cost goes into the packaging (I already talked about this issue in my last post).

Price: 3/5 Quite expensive for 15ml
Scent: 4.5/5
Effectiveness: Depends on your age and your skin condition of your eye area.
Repurchase? Not until I turn at least 35

I've stopped using this product and gave it to my mom since I've bought the Swedish Skin eye cream which I will review very soon.

I hope the swedish skin eye cream isn't that good ... otherwise I'm probably going to buy it and spend more money T.T

Thanks for this review! I wanted to try this out. But that will wait until I'm a little older :)

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I think I'm going to try some Ponds products!

I'm trying out this eye cream, it's really thick and I find that it doesn't totally sink in, so it has a bit of residue. I'm a bit iffy about it.

I have no problem trying skincare for more matured skin too. I know a lot of people would use eye creams as eye masks and put a thick layer on before they sleep. Do you think it would give you milia? I always feel like milia doesnt go away easy :X Anyway please do a review on the Swedish Skin eye cream soon :D

Wow as soon as I saw this I thought nooo bcos I actually work for them and would never recommend this to someone young. It's so rich and its really only necessary for extreme dryness and extreme wrinkles! Hope your eye area is okay!!

Ooh nice review, I'm going to try out this product when I can get my hands on it :)

I think this line is much too rich for younger skin types! I tried something from this line and it cause me to have super red cheeks!! I freaked out because I had no idea what it was since it wasn't itchy or dry but just super red, so now I stay far away from this and stick to my pureness line haha not to mention Im deathly afraid of milia!!!

To find the best wrinkle cream, its always better to read the consumer wrinkle cream reviews before making any decision.

Wrinkle Creams" that phrase that has changed the way dermatologists used to research about the skin texture. "Best Wrinkle Cream", the word which gets the highest attention among the women.
