This eye cream sinks into the skin quickly, with no oily residue, making it perfect for under makeup. It reminds me of MAC Fast Response Eye cream in texture and seems to form a moisture retaining barrier versus bathing the area with emollients. I don't really believe claims made by any product manufacturers and was specifically looking for something with peptides and Vitamin K when I picked it up on Amazon. The ingredient list is quite impressive but my expectations were and are waay low. Surprisingly, I do notice less darkness - nothing traffic-stopping but I can use a corrector under foundation now versus fighting with evil concealers. It doesn't feel ultra lush or juicy but my eye area remains moisturized throughout the day. MAC Fast Response is sort of a holy grail for me but Mad Hippie provides the same result and is extremely transparent regarding the ingredients. At night I pile on a visible amount of it over my usual oil just because I am that desperate.

I'm glad I waited to review this because my eye area is so dry I go for thicker, wetter, greasier products in an attempt to retain as much moisture as possible. This product does that without the mess and doesn't seem to contribute to milia. When I finish up my current night cream I'll be giving more Mad Hippie products a try.

I am on the fence about this eye cream. I like how it moisturizes under my eyes, but I do not see significant improvement (yet) in terms of anti-aging benefits. I am hoping to, but so far I am still waiting! The price is not terrible, so it is worth the money to try it out and the pump packaging is an added bonus.

Great daytime eye cream. I have dry skin and use a heavier product (chagrin valley whipped squalane face & eye mousse) in the winter and at night, but for day and summer, this has become my go-to eye product to wear under foundation (or by itself when I don't need SPF). Unlike many reviewers, I have had absolutely no singing or irritation with this product, despite the fact that I have sensitive skin and have had bad reactions to many other eye and face products. This cream has no scent, and sinks in incredibly well. It does not produce instant results, but in my experience over a period of weeks, it softens lines and de-puffs and lightens dark circles, making my under-eye area considerably less crepey-looking, and making anything I put over it go on much more smoothly and without settling in wrinkles. It does not tighten skin, but if what you are looking for is less wrinkles, less discoloration, better texture, and you are willing to be patient, I have found Mad Hippie Eye Cream to work much better than products costing much more. Going on it feels soothing to me, so it feels good even if you do not see results right away. Note the expiration date on the bottom of the package - typically about a year from when purchased. This cream does not have preservatives, and so even though the container is small, I would not recommend buying a huge quantity at one time. You do not need to use a lot - a .05 ounce container lasts me about three months of using it on a daily basis and the half-ounce leak-proof container is also great for travel.

I got a bunch of free samples of the mad hippie eye cream at Whole Foods. I've been using it for 5 weeks and every time I apply it it burns and my eyes won't stop tearing up! I know exactly what is causing everyone's irritations and rashes; it's the high concentration of niacinamide. Luckily for me the irritation subsides after 5 minutes. I can't comment if it works on reducing wrinkles since I don't have any but it has lighten my dark under eye circles.

I have never in my life had an allergic reaction to a skin cream and I have tried just about every product known to man, including some very dodgy face creams picked up in India, which were undoubtedly packed full of all kinds of rubbish. However, this stuff made my skin burn, itch, flake, and I have an inexplicable red welt on my cheek. I don't get it at all. I am so so disappointed because I wanted to love this range. I can't quite understand why it's having this effect. Perhaps someone science-ey could explain what the possible issue could be as quite a few seem to be experiencing this and I would definitely not include myself in the sensitive skin crowd.

Like many of the other reviews I have seen, this product not only gave me a burning/stinging sensation around the eyes, but this morning I looked at my eyes and there was a slight (hardly noticeable) rash and a three blemishes. I have never had any product react to my skin this way. This happened the other day too but I didn't think it was the eye cream, I still didn't use it just to test it out and low and behold once I stopped using it, my eyes were fine. Then last night I used it and BAM! The eye cream made me break out as well as a rash, on my eyelids. I love that these products are "natural" but I am going to have to steer clear because something in them doesn't agree with my skin. As I stated previously I have never had a product do this, so I was shocked. Be careful with it :) and good luck.

Wanted to love this after good reviews on Iherb etc but unfortunately it wasn't for me. Burning/stinging sensation every time I used it. Like another reviewer said, good ingredients but something in the formulation isn't right for my skin. If you have sensitive skin beware.

Really nice ingredients but I'm unsure if it's formulated correctly. I had a massive allergic reaction to this product and I've heard of many people having a reaction to this line.

The price and packaging were great. I really liked the pump. Very hygienic. If only the product itself would have been better.

This is my favorite eye cream. It not only helped get rid of a lot of the wrinkles around my eyes (or at least make them much less noticeable), it helped with the dark circles and puffiness too!

The Mad Hippie eye cream smells just great and really sinks in to the skin. I find it can be used during the day under sunscreen (as long as you have a light facial sunscreen) and at night as well.

I agree with the other reviews - Mad Hippie is great!
