Sephora Collection Age Defy moisturizer and eye cream

I originally got the moisturizer as a sample when I was at the store.  I have a little bit of an issue with the Sephora brand considering they started out as a retailer for other beauty brands.  I feel like they could stock more variety in the stores if they took away their own products.  However, their products are usually cheaper than the others they sell (sometimes significantly) while keeping the quality of higher priced brands.

Although I love Oil of Olay, I still don't feel like I've found the moisturizer for me so I figured I'd give it a try.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  This is one of the first moisturizers I've ever used that showed an immediate difference.  And it was just moisture vs. non-moisture.  It really seemed to smooth away the fine wrinkles on my cheeks.  It's very thick and creamy but does not feel that way once you put it on.  It also has spf 15 which isn't really enough but better than nothing.

It worked so well I tried it on my biggest problem area, under my eye.  I have a bunch of small wrinkles which I just found out is called cross-hatching.  What?  Could we think of more insulting names for wrinkles?  Crows feet?  From here on out, I will only refer to them as fairy trails and sunbursts.  So, it did a really decent job on my undereye fairy trails but stung my eyes somewhat.  When I went to buy the full size, I saw they also had an eye cream and bought them as a duo hoping the eye cream would be gentler around the eye area.  Unfortunately, it is not.  I rub my eyes too much (probably explains the fairy trails) and they would sometimes start to sting and water for what seemed like no reason.  I can only think it is the eye cream.  So, even though it works better than anything I have tried so far, I can't use it.  But if you don't have sensitive eyes, it's definitely worth a shot.

I am sticking with the face moisturizer until it is empty but I will probably try other products when it runs out.  It works really well but I still don't think it is the ultimate moisturizer for me.
