NARS Skin Total Replenishing Eye Cream ($55) is one of several new skin care products that NARS recently introduced. This launch includes some new products as well as some that have been reformulated.
Of course, I was highly interested in checking out the eye cream considering it’s my next biggest addiction with concealer being my number one.
Let’s take a look and see if this eye cream passed my tests.
This is a quick absorbing eye cream developed to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and the appearance of dark circles.
It’s enriched with Beech Bud Extract to boost collagen production. I’m honestly not familiar with Beech Bud Extract but I haven’t yet been in contact with an eye cream that boosts collagen production, they promise it, but it never works as far as I see.
This is a paraben and alcohol free formula. Two great perks as far as I’m concerned. Particularly the lack of alcohol as it won’t dry skin out after use.
Here’s the thing…
I love the formula. It does separate for some reason so it looks a tad oily when you squeeze it out but for the most part I find the formula very soothing, gentle, and fast to absorb. It makes an excellent daily eye cream since it’s so lightweight.
However, after a nearly a month of use I’m not seeing any other perks here particularly since it’s near $60. It’s not enough moisture for drier eyes plus I didn’t see any decrease in finer lines and/or wrinkles. I also felt like it didn’t do well on puffiness.
I’d typically enjoy something like this for daily use since it absorbs so quickly and has just enough moisture to wear under makeup but sadly, I think the price tag really makes me wince since I am seeing no other perks from use.
Overall, I’m sadly disappointed with NARS Total Replenishing Eye Cream. At this price, I’d expect more moisture and better treatment for my finer lines to warrant a repurchase.
Available now at NARS counters.

I’m more the type that doesn’t take skincare created by makeup brands serious enough!
