BEDA Day 23: Philosophy Eye Hope Review

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 23 of BEDA,

I have been doing a lot of fun posts recently but I thought today I would go back to the basics and do a good old fashioned review for you.

Today I am reviewing the Philosophy Eye Hope eye cream. I recently purchased the Philosophy Purity Made Simple cleanser and the Philosophy Amazing Grace perfume and The Bay, which is a local Canadian department store was having a promotion that if you spent $50.00 or more on Philosophy products you would receive a Philosophy gift bag with your purchase.

In this gift bag there were a bunch of different Philosophy products but the one I was most excited for was the Eye Hope eye cream because if you know from my recent BEDA post on the Korres eye cream (link here) I suffer from under eye dark circles and this eye cream is supposed to work towards reducing them so I was so happy to have gotten 2, 2ml samples of this stuff to try out.

The consistency of this product is nice. I would not recommend it for the morning time because it is on the thick side but for night it is great and moisturizing.

Now for my experience with the product....


Yes, I know that seems a little harsh but I do and the reason why is milia (tiny bumps underneath your eyes). I have never had an eye cream in my life ever give me those bumps underneath my eyes. I could not continue using it to see the results and whether or not my dark circles improved or not. I know for a fact that this was the product that gave me those bumps because after I stopped using it the bumps disappeared.

I know a lot of people like this product but it is not for me and I am glad that I got a sample and did not have to spend money on it because it is quite pricey.

Final Decision: I would skip this product especially if your eye area is sensitive because you probably don't want those little bumps underneath your eyes.

Thank you for reading Day 23 of BEDA. I will see you tomorrow for Day 24!

Stay Happy!

- Cate W.
