Ponds Gold Eye Cream

Price: R189.99
Availability: Department stores nationwide

What we say:
This is my favourite product from the Gold Radiance range. There are no details of the product itself on the packaging, which I find a bit annoying. The scent of the cream is very feint. Big plus! The cream is very moisturising and is absorbed quickly. It leaves my eye area looking and feeling hydrated. This is a product that I would recommend and purchase for myself. Thumbs up.

The product is intended to fade dullness, and minimize wrinkles and dark circles. It would be suitable for all skin types, especially oily skin because it’s non-comedogenic. I like it and I’d recommend it because it makes the eye area look radiant. Although the pump-action container prevents the product from becoming contaminated, I prefer my eye creams to come in a jar; but it’s a good product and I’d buy it.
– Jessica

I like the sturdy little pump bottle, and that only a little cream comes out at a time. This is a good thing because only a very small amount is required for every application. It absorbed easily into my skin, with little gold particles visible on application. I’ve been using the product for about 3 weeks, and can see the noticeable difference in the lines around my eyes.
– Kaamilah

While I am generally blessed with relatively good skin, I have always struggled with dark circles under my eyes. So when a product promises to improve those pesky dark circles I am always sceptical… but hopeful. Now I can’t really say that this eye cream completely cured my dark circles, but I have to say that I could see a visible difference. I do not wear contacts, but I thought it quite impressive that they specify that this eye cream is suitable for contact lens wearers. The only thing that would have made this eye cream a little better, is if they added an SPF… because the delicate skin around the eye is one of the first places where those sneaky little lines start to form, and quite often due to sun damage.

This was the product that I really wanted to try the most out of my entire Ponds Radiance range. Apart from having sensitive eyes I wear contact lenses so for me I need an eye cream that will not only work on fine lines and hydration but that does not irritate this sensitive area. Even though I did not find any visible difference in my lines or circles, I loved the fact that it did not sting or burn my eyes and they did feel refreshed after using this cream.
– Danielle

When I first saw the Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream I was a little put off by how small the bottle is. I was sure that I would run out of eye cream long before I was halfway through the other products in the Pond’s Gold Radiance Range. I was wrong! That little certainly goes a long way. The eye cream feels quite oily at first, as though it will leave you with huge shiny patches under your eyes. But, if you apply and then just leave it for a minute, you will find that the product has completely absorbed into your skin. It really is a good eye cream for that extra moisture for the sensitive eye area.
– Roxanne

I’ve always been on the fence about eye creams. Should I? Should I rather not? Then I just remember if anything, prevention over cure. With no particular concerns when it comes to my eye area, I would mainly use the eye cream to help keep the eye area hydrated and brighten it. I like the fact that it’s a light cream and is odourless. This makes it easy for the product to simply glide on and melt in. This is a great product for radiance and a bright-eyed result.
– Adelaide

The bottle has a pump applicator, so it allows you to get just the right amount of cream as needed. I was a bit skeptical about the quantity as the bottle feels very light, so don’t think it will last very long as I am using the eye cream day and night. Cream feels velvety and absorbs quickly around the eye area. Since using this product, I’ve never had any darkness around the eyes anymore, and fine lines are also disappearing.
– Marina

This product has got a very soft fine smell. It is very smooth and evaporates immediately. It makes me feel good because I can see that it is working for my problem areas under my eyes. My husband has noticed it because I used to have this dark circled under my eyes, but nowadays I am a bright eyed girl. This product really works for me because I see the difference in the mirror every morning. I like this product because it really works for me and I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.
– Diana

Firstly I like the gold cap. The little spout it has , saves you from messing. It is so nice and cool around your eye area after you have applied it. It is quickly absorbed leaving it soft and smooth around your eyes. It helps the fine lines that have started showing due to ageing. You can see the cream is starting to work after only applying it a few days. The smell is great.
– Lorraine

I loved the eye cream. I am always a skeptical when it comes to eye creams and if they make a difference, I promise you I saw a difference. During my third week I could see a complete difference in the mirror. My eyes seem brighter and healthier and I could be imagining it but I look more youthful. I would definitely buy this product. I have used a few eye creams and this is the first where I can see a noticeable difference.
– Lynn

The light reflecting qualities immediately lifted the appearance of my dark circles – I’m definitely getting away with using less concealer. The effect lasted all day and into the evening too. My eye area was looking quite crepe-y but now, even freshly washed with no creams on at all, I can see an improvement – my eye area looks more hydrated and fresher and possibly a little less dark. I love this eye cream and have high hopes for a good effect over the long term.
– Marguerite

It is easy to apply and leaves the skin around my eyes feeling soft and looking good. I have definitely noticed a change in the fine lines around my eyes since I have been using this cream. Even the “suitcases” beneath my eyes have faded a little. I would highly recommend this product and will be buying it myself in future.
– Melanie

Around 7cm high with a 1.5cm radius, this small spray nozzle bottle holds the non-fragrant, light eye cream that glides on smoothly. It is easily absorbed, with the micro-particles of real gold shimmering on the skin. I looked forward to the promise of minimized lines, wrinkles, and dark circles. To be fair to the product, I think it is too soon to have expected a visible improvement on my dark circles. Fine lines did show some improvement. I will continue to use this and recommend it to those who need an eye cream.
– Retha

Thanks to my dark circles I’m always reluctant to get my hopes up when it comes to eye creams because they never seem to budge. However after a few weeks of using this soft, gentle and moisturising eye cream I can see a difference in my eye area. Not only are the circles less visible, the fine lines around my eyes are hardly noticeable – definitely a plus. This eye cream is definitely something I will buy again as it has lived up to its promise and definitely exceeded my expectations.
– Serisha

The packaging is eye catching and I love the gold colour. Looks royal! I have not really noticed the difference from my eye area. The dark circles did not clear. The purpose of the cream is to diminish dark circles & wrinkles, however it has not worked for me. I didn’t find the cream to be durable, however maybe it will work for someone else. I wouldn’t buy this eye cream again.
– Jassika

First impression when I saw the packing – WOW! This looks impressive and classy! Beautiful gold colored box and the product inside also did not disappoint! It is a very concentrated cream, and I only needed one pump to use on both eyes – below, brow and on the “crows feet” area. I enjoyed the feel of this cream and it didn’t make my eyes feel puffy or sticky unlike other eye creams I have used before…
– Louise

The eye cream is feathery light, fragrance free. It absorbs well and is non-greasy, it can be used under eye make-up with ease as it doesn’t cause creases. The eye lids don’t become puffy looking as the eye cream is light and almost similar to an eye gel in texture. I found that the fine lines around the eye area definitely became less visible and the dark circles seem a shade lighter. I would recommend this eye cream for all ages.
– Dorothy

I adore the cute little golden packaging! I find the pump dispenser very hygienic and it also includes a mini leaflet with all possible information you need to know about the product. I only need half the pump for full application on both my eyes! It is a extremely light and non greasy formula. It gets absorbed into the skin pretty fast and adds an instant glow to tired eyes! The only bad thing is with the packaging you can’t see how much product is left.
