Manuka Doctor Apinourish Age Defying Eye Cream - Does It Work?-Review

What is Manuka Doctor Apinourish Age Defying Eye Cream?

The effectiveness of Manuka Doctor Apinourish Age Defying Eye Cream will be assessed in this review. The product is designed to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eye and refine wrinkles to give the eye a  more healthy and younger looking appearance. It also contains ingredients which reduce inflammation and increase moisturization.

Ingredients & How It Works

  • Honey
  • Rice Germ Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Tocopheryl Acetate
  • Glycerin
  • Bee Venom

The honey contains a number of natural antimicrobial ingredients that help to reduce skin infection and damage and it also nourishes the skin cells underneath the eye. Healthy cells have a much better appearance then damaged or injured ones. There is also some evidence that honey can increase the elasticity of skin. The tocopheryl acetate also helps to reduce inflammation from chemical damages. The bee venom causes blood to be drawn into the area which provides more moisture and nutrients to the cells there, but it also causes a degree of inflammation which is not entirely beneficial. The glycerine and shea butter help to keep the moisture locked in and stop it from evaporating and causing the skin beneath the eye to sag.


Customers can use this product by gently putting the cream into the eye area using the fingertips. This product can be used twice a day in the morning and in the evening. It is suggested that customers cleanse their face before using this product to increase the absorption of the ingredients.

The Cost

The cost of 0.5 fl oz is $14.23. This price does not include shipping or taxes, but customers who place orders over $50, do receive free shipping (only valid in the United States of America). There are no subscription services for this product but customers may sign up with the manufacturer to receive loyalty points and thereafter special promotions.


We could not find any evidence of a guarantee or a returns policy. This means that the manufacturer would rather have the customer bear the risk of the product not working, even though it is not the customer’s fault in that case. We believe all manufacturer should offer a guarantee as a sign of confidence in their products, so a lack of guarantee in this case reduces our confidence in this manufacturer’s product.

Our Review Summary Of Manuka Doctor Apinourish Age Defying Eye Cream

We are not particularly excited about the manufacturer including bee venom in their product, because it can be dangerous and it's unnecessary. There are several other natural products that could perform the same function without any harm. The price of this product is not unreasonable and the manufacturer does offer some motivation to buy the product in the form of promotions and discounts, but we believe that this product is untrustworthy without a guarantee. When compared to similar eye creams on the market, this one unfortunately has several flaws and that is why we recommend customers look at other products instead of this one.
