I have tried a number of eye creams in the past and honestly haven’t had much luck. I don’t think I have ever used an eye cream that I thought worked wonders for me. I had high hopes for the Clinique Pep-Start after reading the positive reviews on Sephora. I have been using it for about a week now, and I wouldn’t classify this as being amazing. It is a very ordinary eye cream. It is slightly hydrating. It does brighten the eye area, as claimed. The applicator is strange and I can’t imagine it being good for the delicate eye area. I just used my fingers to dab the cream on my eye area. Overall, an ordinary eye cream not worth the price – $31.00. 2.5 out of 5 stars for this one.
