I would like to apologize for taking so much time in putting forth my opinion on ‘Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream with Anise’. Considering its high pricing I wanted to be double sure of what I was observing about this cream. Nonetheless, the delay is worth waiting for as I have tried to cover almost all concerns about under eye area, which are being treated or left-out after using this cream.

My Take on ‘Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream with Anise’
Forest Essentials intensive eye cream comes in a luxurious packaging. The cute little eye cream pot is packed inside a graceful cardboard box. The box looks so classy that I have not yet gathered the courage to throw it away. I am planning to use it as a new house for my daily wear earrings . If you have any other ideas please share them as I would like to preserve this box (not for eternity ;-)). The pot that contains the eye cream is made of hard glassy so it is sturdy and heavy in weight. The golden screw cap enhances the beauty of pot, and gives it the real luxury look. The pot also has an extra capping layer to avoid spillage.
The cream has watery base that makes it easy to slather on under eye area. Just a little quantity is required to cover both the eyes, so I believe that would at least make it last for a couple of months and thus compensate for the high price ;-). Always ensure that you are using ring finger for eye cream application as it causes least pressure, which is essential for delicate skin. The texture is non-sticky and absolutely smooth. The fragrance is very mild – almost unnoticeable, and I believe this one property would amplify its usage.
For the application part, I have been using this cream for more than 5 weeks now. Taking the cream on my ring finger, I dab it on the under eye area without rubbing or massaging. In a couple of seconds it penetrates into the skin leaving no white cast behind. As suggested by the sales assistant, I am sticking to twice a day application – after bathing and before going to bed. The cream does not cause any stinging sensation; even if it accidentally gets applied on the waterline it does not make the eyes watery.
I know any product’s packaging, fragrance and longevity scales are irrelevant if there are no worthy consequences. Plus, if the product has an exorbitant price, as this one has, the after-effects become even more important. Nevertheless, you will be happy to know that after consistent usage I find Forest essentials anise cream worth investing in. Since I have started using this cream, I see my under eye area has become more smooth and less pigmented than what it used to be before. Now, it feels moisturized and hydrated. For the hydration, there is less stretching and formation of wrinkles, which had become a little prominent earlier. In reducing the dark circles, I think this cream is working relatively slow but I am hopeful that in another couple of weeks, if I also pay attention to sleep and food, those would also be completely gone.
