Rated 5 out of 5 by GerryBabes Eyes down for a full house!!
I first bought this product on an online auction site after reading lots of 5* reviews on QVC. Having oily skin all my life, I have open pores on my T-Zone. I applied as directed by Keeley, and will admit my knowledge of how how high end products actually worked was then limited.
I found that after a few weeks of application, my eyes were brighter, less dark circles and it definitely reduced the appearance of my very fine lines...however I found that I began to get small breakouts around the eye socket under the eye area and in between my my eyebrow area as I have classic 11's there. I knew it was the product as the spots under my sockets were in curved lines, and I realised that this was followed the pattern of application.
I persevered, carefully avoiding the product on the skin just slightly under the bone and Never in between my brows. Icontinued to use very carefully just on lids, upper brow bone and avoided any overspill onto previous areas i had got spots on (the ones between my brows were large). Alternating between this and Decleor eye serum until I finished the bottle. I had concluded this Elemis product was sadly not for me.
HOWEVER I read up on the different ingredients in skin care and discovered that collagen can sink into pores making them larger, ( and thus causing blockage and spots). I realised that I had moved into a more advanced level of skin care, with more potent active ingredients. I made sure I educated myself on skin care, with help of the wonderful demonstrations etc on QVC and further reading.
I concluded that my skin was taking time to adjust to the powerful active ingredients in the eye serum (and my particular issue with enlarge pores. Then a recent opportunity with a TSV I got the Elemis Advanced Eye serum again. Well......knowing what I know now, I have found this time around I have had no reaction with spots. I continue to avoid tapping it onto the skin under my lower socket and never apply it to the area between my brows. No spots this time around, and I am amazed by how potent but light it is to apply. My dark circles are continuing to reduce and overall my eyes are less puffy and refreshed.
I personally feel that none of us can expect to use any product on its own and achieve miracle results. My skin care regime is now thorough and I use other Elemis products for the eyes, face and neck and other products that can be use in the eye area, Decleor, Gatineau and Benefit (potent eye cream).
I have found if I have a meticulous cleansing regime and use other products - Elemis Marine Cream (up to the lash line), treatments with bliss capsules, and the new Elemis serum as well as the Elemis collagen mask; regular exfoliation with Gatineu (anti ageing type) Decleor hydrafloral plumping mask, also other masks like Gatineau Melatogenine Futur Plus, Liz Earle eye cream her Eye Bright soothing Eye lotion and of course Prolagene Gel.
Not only is my face and neck/decollage is looking as best it can for my tender age of 45 but my eyes are less puffy, lighter in colour and less hooded. "Get to the point" I hear you cry...well my point is, if you find the Advanced Elemis Pro Collagen Advanced eye serum did not work for you and/or gave you a bad reaction, it may be that you need to look at the whole of your skin care regime (as well as diet) including eye and face make up removal. Sincere apologies if I'm sounding patronising, but this IS a product that works....the 5* reviews demonstrate this.
For the folk who were very disappointed with it I would urge you to take a more holistic view of your eye area as all the other good skin care (this includes applying an eye cream after your serums) that are available will also contribute to it's efficacy.
For me this product is now a very important part of my arsenal of skin/eye care. And like you, I thought it was making my skin around my eyes worse. But no longer. Thank you QVC and Fiona Young, along with the other Brand representatives for the tutorials and demos. I'm not on any QVC commission (lol) but I would say to those who feel this product was a 'bad buy' to give it another go. I did, got myself a bit more understanding on skin/eye care and now I am seeing real results. I really hope this has been helpful to those of you who have been really disappointed with purchasing this product

Rated 2 out of 5 by Leared21 Not what I expected
I received this item as part of the TSV. I have used it for several weeks and I haven't seen any improvement on my fine lines & wrinkles! I adore all of elemis other products, this is the first product I would not recommend! Such a shame

Starting to get lines (pillow creases) 1st thing in a morning, this seems to plump them out immediately. At night after removing my make (pro collagen cleansing balm) this soothes tired and sore eyes from my make up. Perfect product also for sensitive skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cc27 no difference at all
Had high hopes for this and was looking forward to using it,but after a couple of weeks I saw no difference at all.
Thank goodness for returns policy of QVC.

I purchased this for a friend, on first application she had a bad reaction and consequently gave it back to me to return. I don`t have any major wrinkles around the eye area but I do have badly hooded eyes, which I hate, i know that it can be hereditary and indeed my grandmother and mother both had this problem, and had always been told that surgery was the only long term solution.. I decided to give the product a go myself and for nearly 3 weeks have been applying before i go to bed, i see no visible difference to my fine lines, but there has been a huge change to my hooded eyes, my lids are fully visible for the first time in years and i look much more awake, friends are noticing, they think I've had work done. This is a remarkable improvement in a very short period, and i feel so fortunate that this has worked for me, and hopefully will continue to in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by oz11 so disappointing
Had such high hopes for this... such a shame made no difference what so ever. Used this for 5 months day and night. Didn't help my dark circles or fine lines. love most of elemis products but not this one. Oh well back to the drawing board.
