What the heck is inside the Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream

Okay... I had to blog about this because I feel scammed for buying the Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream.  This cream at Sephora is $99.  $99!!!  I actually have no qualms about the product itself because I think the eye cream is great.  However, the jar itself looks and feels a lot bigger than the amount of product that is actually in the jar!  If you look carefully, you're only getting 0.5 fl. oz for again... $99!!!

Thank goodness I did not pay $99 for this eye cream.  I bought this in France, for still a hefty price tag of 60€!  Last weekend I realized it was getting difficult to pump the product through the bottle and I've only been using it for about 2 months, so I thought it was weird.  I decided to try to take the pump off and dig the rest of the product out, but what I found was the following:

I was wondering at first why it was so hard to remove, but out came the pump along with a little plastic pouch with all the product left in it.  So the bottle itself is a lot bigger than the actual product.  It looks and feels like a lot, but don't be fooled... it's not!  

Though I like this eye cream, I don't think the amount you get is worth almost $100 USD.  I was having a hard time paying 60€ for it and would never buy this in the US!  Totally nuts.  

Anyhow, just wanted to share my experience and disappointment with this product.  I wish the price tag was lower and that it had more than 0.5 fl. oz. in this very luxurious bottle.  The cream claims toinstantly revitalize your eyes, making your skin smoother and more hydrated, getting rid of dark circles.  Honestly, I didn't see a whole much of a difference between this product and the Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Firming Eye Cream that I really like.  For $72, you get 2 fl. oz. of product.  It's still pricey, but you get more than almost double the amount!  

I will definitely not be buying the Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream again... even if it's from France at almost 40% of the price you pay in the US.  For the money you pay, I expect at least a full ounce of product. This is definitely the most disappointing purchase of the year!
