The Alpha H Absolute Eye Complex came as part of this set that I posted about a while back, I was only really going for the set for the Instant Facial so the other two items were just a bonus really, the Micro Cleanse I absolutely love and will repurchase when I run out, after saying recently that I hate grainy exfoliators, the micro cleanse is that but is also a chemical exfoliant using Glycolic acid, I love it, my skin feels amazing after using it - review here - Anyway, I'm rambling, the Eye Complex I really want to love but I just struggle with the packaging, even on my very first use, it was literally like getting blood from a stone, I'm all for using pumps and gadgets to make life easier but it just doesn't seem to work on this and from looking on google to see how others found this, it seems to be a recurring issue so hopefully it's something Alpha-H will sort out. Essentially, I found I had to pump and pump before any product would come out and then all of a sudden, loads of product would fly out and now it actually won't pump anything out.
Product wise, it's a clear gel consistency that looks like it's done nothing as you apply it but you really will notice a difference when you wake up the next morning, everything seems a bit tighter and firmer around the eye area, I didn't find it worked amazingly on dark circles but too be honest, it's not really something I have a problem with so perhaps if you have darker circles, you may see a more dramatic result. As a preference, I'm definitely one for more of a creamy consistency for eye creams as opposed to gel products so this would be more something I'd reach for if I had a special event the next day but it's probably not one I'd be reaching for on a daily basis.
At a price of £34.50, I'm glad this came as part of a set and it's unlikely that it would be something I would re-purchase, maybe when I'm older and need to use something like this on a daily basis! If you do want to give this a go, I'd recommend trying this as part of one of the Alpha-H sets on QVC as they really do offer great value versus buying the products separately and as a brand, I'm really loving their products.

Have you guys tried this, what did you think?
