This is what the full product looks like (if you want to see my sample size, please check out my December Glymm Box post). It retails for $95 for a 15ml bottle on the Glymm website. to me, that's a little on the small size. That's like $6.33 per ml! Funny thing is, it retails for $95 US on the Sephora website. I don't know what it retails for at the Canadian Sephora stores. For once, cross border shopping ain't so grand!
When I initially squeezed the product out of the sample tube, I thought that the cream looked quite thick but very creamy. It was gold and had a little bit of shimmer to it. There was little fragrance to the cream. I applied a little bit, enough to feel the moisture on my skin underneath the eye. By the time I had finished my second eye, the moisturizer I had applied under the first eye was pretty much absorbed already. There's nothing I hate more than an eye cream that just sits there. It was wonderful and glorious! Instantly, I noticed that my circles were a little lighter, but I'm guessing that it's from the shimmer, but when I looked closely, I didn't see any shimmer on my skin, nor did it look like the cream was just acting like "cover up".
I applied this cream twice a day, as per instructions and sometimes, if I managed to get a little more sleep and have a little less stress in my life because deadlines were met, I notice that my circles are diminished a little. But if I'm particularly tired or worried about something, I see that they are back with a vengeance. If this product wasn't as expensive as it is, I would totally purchase it. It was light, made a temporary difference and heck, it's all natural. Maybe I'll purchase it with a Sephora discount (the friends and family or whatever), but without some sort of subsidy, I must continue my search for the holy grail of ridding under eye circles.
