I know most of you are aware that collagen helps in tightening hair follicles, preventing Osteoporosis, alleviating shrinkage and maintaining skin elasticity as it maintains our skin’s moisture. Ideally our body should be able to productively generate collagen by itself until the age 30, and then the production rate gradually declines as we get older. Now I’m sure if there’s something wrong with the part of my body that’s supposed to produce collagen because apparently, the area around my eyes is lacking collagen. I hate to admit it but at such early age, I already have fine lines settling in and they’re a major pain because they’re almost impossible to cover, unlike dark circles. So I turn to eye creams.. hoping I’ll find something effective.

Hate those saggy dark circles? POND’S Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream refreshes tired eyes while diminishing puffiness and dark circles. Enriched with 99% real gold microparticles, Vitamin B3 & CLA, it soothes and smoothens the area around your eyes for a brighter, younger look!
Special Ingredient: Gold
A natural mineral that boosts cell renewal and gives your skin an instant glow.

Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream is contained in a sturdy little pump bottle. And like the name of the line, the entire packaging is luxuriously covered with gold shades. The packaging as a whole is very compact and light; not a pain to carry around. It’s a plus that the cap doesn’t pop out accidentally but the best part of the packaging is the pump. It’s very easy to dispense and control the amount of product and it does so little by little. It doesn’t squirt the product all over like other pumps. Yeah, little things matter. *wink By the way, what I don’t like about the completely opaque packaging is that I never know exactly how much product is left. πŸ™
Compared to Pond’s other product lines, the Gold Radiance line is apparently more expensive. This anti-aging line, I think, is the high-end part of the brand. Well, seeing how they claim that “gold” is one of the ingredients, it’s easy to understand its price tag. Anyway, with Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream, you can stretch your money a little more. Believe me, a pea-sized product is more than enough for both eyes. You’ve heard me say this before but with this eye cream, a little really does go a long way. I’ve been using this for more than 3 months and I still feel the bottle has enough product inside to last me 3-4 months more. πŸ™‚ 
When it comes to eye creams, I generally like them light and scentless – a characteristic I luckily found in Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream. I have dry patches around the eye area but I couldn’t stand heavy eye creams so I usually opt to get those with lightweight formulation. Good thing Gold Radiance is thin, consistency-wise. It glides on smoothly and it’s easily absorbed by the skin too. I like how soft and slightly soothing it is when applied.
As for the so-called special gold microparticles, I did see flecks of gold mixed in with the cream itself. They’re tiny and higly unnoticeable when blended but they’re there. I tried the Gold Radiance serum once before and the microparticles are more obvious in that one.
Now for the results,

After more than 3 months of continuous use, Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream was able to address my major skin problem – fine lines. I can leave with dark circles because they’re easy to conceal. But the lines under my eyes make it very difficult to find a good concealer as creamy concealers with good coverage usually tend to settle on lines. From my photo documentation above, it’s obvious that the deepest and most prominent line under my right eye was significantly relieved over time. New lines inevitably started showing up because of my late night bloggings and some other stressful stuff but they’re not as deep and obvious as the ones before.

In short, if your concern is the fine lines or crows feet around the eyes, Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream would be a great option. But if your problem is more on the discoloration or the dark circles, I would not recommend this. Overall, I think Pond’s Gold Radiance Youth Reviving Eye Cream would work best for older women or those with advance setting of lines, like me.
