C.O. Bigelow Triple Task Eye Treatment Review

I've been using C.O. Bigelow Triple Task Eye Treatment for a few weeks now in place of DERMADoctor Wrinkle Revenge and I'm kinda digging on it.

Click after the jump for some first impressions and a bit of a review!

Few fun facts about my eyes...

I have a few fine lines, dark circles nothing dramatic but they are there if I don't get proper rest, plus some puffiness. Mainly I've been looking for an eye cream for ages to rid myself of puffiness that's one of my great concerns as I tend to wake up puffy. I've tried all the normal tips and tricks to get the puffiness down but to no avail, still puffy.

One of the interesting things about C.O. Bigelow Triple Task Eye Treatment that captured my interest was the fact that it contained 3% Eyeliss. Eyeliss is supposedly a miracle worker for puffy eyes. Not many eye creams contain Eyeliss at least none of the ones I've been privy too and believe me I've tried alot lately. Strangely enough Eyeliss is sometimes found in concealers. I know Lorac is guilty of putting a bit of Eyeliss in their concealer as is Tarte which I think it's rather fab as what better way to battle the puff than with concealer right? So indeed Eyeliss being an active ingredient in this sold me on it. Honestly, if Eyeliss was not listed I'd have skipped as I'm a bit of a snob and rather splurge on higher end eye creams in the hopes that the most buck will get me the biggest bang of results.

Not surprising that up until now I really don't see too much of a difference in my eye area but that's no fault of the cream as I've purchased eye creams that are $80 bucks and rarely see any results. Puffiness is still there, fine lines are a tiny bit blurred but not erased by any means, and dark circles still firmly around when I'm caught running on 5 hours of sleep.

The good news is the cream is inexpensive and does a fairly good job of moisturizing my dry under eye area without causing milia. Richer creams have been known to create a milia problem for me but thankfully I've seen none of that with this. It's a very basic eye cream that moisturizes but offers little else. I could also be jumping the gun here as I've only used it a few weeks so I may need to wait a little longer to see any long term results. I'm one for instant gratification and want to see visible results with one application but that's a tad unfair.

Overall, C.O. Bigelow Triple Task Eye Treatment works nicely enough offering moisture where it's needed but not much far anyway. I'll revisit this in a few weeks and update you on the process but I suspect not much will change. Honestly, it's not all bad at all and quite a good moisturizing eye cream for it's price tag which I can definitely appreciate.

Have you tried this?

Love it?

Would you be willing to try?

What's your HG eye cream?

I'm so happy you reviewed this item from the collection as well!! I use this in the morning to moisturize, I don't know if it does much else but I do wish it had some spf. I use kiehl's abyssine eye cream at night and that works really well, so I'm not sure if the triple task really does anything it's supposed to for me. Have you tried the abyssine eye cream?

hi christine

I noticed that dermdoctor kinda smooths out my milla and makes it barely noticeable :-D it's one of the few eye creams that doesn't give me milla and also feels like it heals it for some reason good stuff!

This is very affordable and it really moisturizes luck with removing my puffs but does a fine job of moisturizing :-D
