Philosophy Full of Promise For Eyes Review

Philosophy Full of Promise For Eyes is kind of a cool product. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it before, but I could be wrong.

From Sephora: “Philosophy Full of Promise For Eyes is a targeted eye treatment duo that helps lift the appearance of the upper eye area and firm the appearance of the undereye area.”  

Didja’ hear THAT? Lifting? Firming? SIGN ME UP BABY. 10 times!

Philosophy Full of Promise For Eyes

Full Of Promise For Eyes($68 CDN) has TWO different eye creams housed in one convenient, all be it kind of BIG container. It’s definitely the biggest eye cream container I’ve seen, but I guess it should be since it had 2 eye creams in it! Can I say how much I adore that there’s a little picture on each end that corresponds to what part of the eye you use the products? Super cute! One side of Philosophy Full of Promise For Eyes has an upper-lid lifting gel that’s supposed to help improve the appearance of droopy upper eyelids for a more youthful, awake look. The other side has an under eye firming cream helps replump and firm the under eye area and smooths the appearance of crepey looking skin. (Anybody else out there always read crepey as creepy at first? Anybody? Just me then, hey? ) I don’t have crepey skin YET, but I’m starting to notice some hollowing under my eyes. The joys of ageing NEVER stop I tell ya. NEVER.

The Upper Eyelid Cream in Philosophy Full of Promise For Eyes is FANTASTICO! It looks more like a gel actually, absorbs quickly with a bit of a tightening action happening. I like it a lot! The under eye cream is also pretty nice and hydrates really well. It also absorbs quickly and doesn’t interfere with my concealer. Both of them feel a little cooling when you apply, which helps with any puffy puffy amiyumi eyes you might have. I’m lucky and don’t have any puffiness, but I sure like the way it feels!

Haven’t noticed any permanent results with Philosophy Full of Promise For Eyes yet, but I find eye creams take longer than serums and face creams for results to kick in, but I’m hopeful! And I’ll keep on using it because I like the idea behind it. There really aren’t a lot of eye creams made for upper lids. Most are for just under the eye so this is something that’s worth continuing to use!

You can find Philosophy in Canada at The Bay, and at Sephora as well.

Whaddaya think? Gimmick? Or does it make sense to have two different eye creams for the eye area? 

*product sent by PR for review, and my  [emoji eyes] thank her!

  • Oh hey, this one sounds like fun! I usually just use one eye cream for both my lid and under my eyes though. So far I haven’t really experienced any problems, but maybe that’s me?

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Maybe! A lot of them aren’t meant for your upper lids though as they might sink into your eyes through the skin, ya know? So be careful!

      • OMG I did NOT know that! Most formulas I use are pretty gentle, but I do have this LRP one that has retinol. I’m saying I probably should stop slapping it on my lids!

      • TracyBeautyReflections

        Yeah be careful! You can put it on the brow bone, but lids you should be careful. One time when Marky was little she had some flakey eyes and we used some cream on them and it made her eyes get all red and irritated.

      • Aww poor Marky. Now come to think of it, I’m not sure if it’s not the eye cream that has been triggering a bit of an eye allergy episode. I should leave my lids alone for a few days to see if things improve! Thanks, Tracy!

  • Ebony J

    Wow I have never seen an eye cream like this either but I just started using eye creams

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Yeah I never used them much until I reached around 42 hahaha. Kind of find I need them now!

  • Oooh, interesting. I just got a sample of a Philosophy eye cream with retinol…I can’t remember what it’s called though, LOL.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha I hope it works for you!

  • Liz

    I’ve been testing this out and might actually finish it. It’s the first eye cream that doesn’t give me milea.

    • that is something to keep in mind. i tend to get milea. so annoying.

    • TracyBeautyReflections


  • well i guess the two areas have different issues but….i’ve never really thought to use two different kinds of cream.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Me neither! Neat hey?

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Neat, hey?


    i hope it works!! i would love a follow-up

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      You got it! 🙂

  • Lily

    I use all my eye creams under my eyes and on my upper lids… this one sounds good though. I went on an eye cream frenzy and bought a few so I have plenty to go through. I guess my eyes are thankful that they’re taken care of, but really… it’ll take me at least a year (probably more!) to use everything up!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha, good for you!
      I never put a cream on my lids, unless it’s meant for that. The skin there is so different-don’t think it’s a good idea. But if it works for you go ahead I guess.

  • Cool! About time someone made something for the upper eyelids.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I agree! I’m finding a lot of people put their regular eye creams on their lids and to me that’s a big NO. It’s not made for that!

  • Toya

    Neat idea! I agree that our upper eyelids don’t get nearly enough lurve as they should! The Kahina Eye Serum I’ve been sampling seems to work well in that area though I gotta say 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Ooh! I ordered some samples from FreshFaced and am testing them out as we speak! Didn’t get that brand, but I’ll remember it for next time!

  • Sounds like a good idea to me! I like that it has pump dispensers. So much better than digging around in a jar!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Agree! Pumps rule. I hate jars.
