After using Avon Anew Ultimate Eye Cream for 3 days, my eyes began to itch, and the surrounding skin got red and dry. Of course I stopped using it, but it has now been about 10 days and the situation has worsened considerably. The red, dry, leathery skin now extends down to my cheek bones although the product use was confined to just under the eyes and the eye lids. The dermatologist told me this morning that I am the 10th person she has treated for using this product! With treatment, I can expect a return to relative normalcy within 3 weeks, although the skin will remain sensitive for 6 months. She did allay my fears of having been permanently disfigured, saying that in time the skin will look just as it did before beginning use of Avon Anew. In the meantime, I am extremely uncomfortable and in some degree of pain all day.
Recommend this product?
I have never experienced an allergic reaction to any other cosmetic. I suggest that Avon recommend clients do a patch test on the inner elbow before using their very strong product on ones eyes.
