I have dark circles under my eye due to lack of sleep and was looking for a specific treatment just for that. As it specifies dark circles I used this for about 6 months, but didn't see a big difference at all. Will not buy it again.
I have hereditary dark circles and don't sleep as much as I should, so my under-eye areas always look tired and dull. I wasn't expecting a miracle product, but I thought this would at least slightly lighten the darkness created by fatigue and hydrate my under-eye.
Not did this eye cream do absolutely NOTHING for my dark circles, I ended up having such a severe reaction to it that it triggered eczema around my eyes - something that has never happened before! [I've never had eczema on my face until this, it was always restricted to certain patches on my legs]. It created a stinging sensation every time I applied it, and when I realized I was getting eczema, I just stopped using it altogether.
I do like the applicator, but given the price and how terrible my experience was, I'm definitely not going to re-purchase.
If you are looking for something to reduce or cure your dark circles this is not it.
That being said, I love this product. I am usually all about enhancing natural beauty and I hate using foundations or concealers. A good toner, serum and moisturizer is everything I need. This product blends beautifully into my skin covering up the circles subtly. I use a tiny amount (play with it to see what works for you) It gives me a great natural look which is always my goal. This may not work if the dark circles are too severe and may only blend well with certain skin tones. But for me its a perfect quick way to finish my favourite 'dewy skin' look. Teamed with the Mac Strobe cream I can easily achieve this without having to put any annoying foundation or concealers on. Would certainly buy again.
This actually worked to diminish my dark circles. There isn't anything that's going to make them disappear altogether since they're genetic but this does a pretty good job. I keep mine in the fridge and apply it morning and night. It doesn't work right away but the circles do diminish over time. It's lighter than my skin tone so it's also a really good base for concealer (though after about three months I found I could skip concealer).
For the past 2 years I have been getting less sleep due to the fact I took on a new job and have been working nights. Oh boy have i noticed a huge difference in my face. So I started turning to skincare tohelp improve my dark eye circles and eye puffiness. I bought this product and have been using it for 3 months now. I love the packaging but it didn't deliver me any result. I use it day and night and I didnt notice any difference.
First off, I would like to say that the shadowing that I have around my eyes is not overly bad. However, it is something that does concern me. Which is why, I decided to purchase this product in the first place. I have seen results from use of this product. It did take an extended time for that to happen. I didn't receive immediate results with this product. And, honestly, I didn't expect to.
The shadowing that I do have around my eyes didn't happen overnight. Therefore, I do understand that I would have to remain committed to using this product twice a day (as was recommended to me by the Clinique sales associate) in order to achieve best results. I certainly will continue to use this product. It has helped with lightening up the shadowing around my eye area. It also helps to slighly firm up my eye area as well. And, even though it is quite pricey, I will continue to buy it.
Overall, it has provided the type of real results that I had been hoping for.
After living with dark circles my entire life, I thought this product would be my miracle cure! But sadly, after following the instructions and finishing the tube - there is absolutely no difference!!!!!! Whilst the product is good for wearing under concealer, it really isn't good for much else. To be honest a couple hours of extra sleep and an extra litre of water make a much bigger difference and its almost instant. So save your money ladies!!! :)
Given that the Even Better Spot Corrector is like a miracle for most people, I decided to buy this without even reading any reviews thinking it would do the same for me. But sadly, no. I have super dark eye circles that are hereditary and this does not work on it. However, I do notice that it does lighten darkness from fatigue and inadequate sleep so if you have those, then it might work. As for hydration, All About Eyes does a much better job. I have horribly dry eyelids such that my eye shadows don't stick very well. When you apply this, it doesn't sink right in. It leaves a film for around 10 minutes before absorbing into the skin.
I'll stick to the other Clinique eye products instead!
I have genetic dark circles and I am starting to get under- eye bags, although no puffiness yet. To make things worse, the past few years I have been sleeping less than 7 hours a day.
I have been using this product for the past 2-3 months. I use it only in the mornings. So, does it deliver?
Well, I have seen no difference at all with my dark circles - but I have to say, I wasn't really expecting anything.
However, I would repurchase and in fact I have repurchased (with a great discount, to be honest) because (a) it did make my eye area feel considerably softer and hydrated, more so than the Korres, Vichy and La Roche Posay eye creams I had tried previously and (b) it seems sort of "tinted", slightly hiding the dark circles and thus makes a great primer for concealer.
I use my fingers to apply it and in fact don't much like the cold feel of the applicator. I find it somewhat pricey for what it is.
The cooling applicator was nice, but overall it didn't do what it promised. I saw no significant difference after 3 months. For the record, I have genetic dark circles and no puffiness. I will stick with All About Eyes Rich formula until I find something else worth spending the money on.
