This is a basic eye cream that is lightweight and hydrates the eye area. Since it absorbs quickly, it's ideal for using under makeup. I haven't been using this long enough to notice any lightening of undereye circles, but I find that such claims are generally untrue (usually genetic or caused by lack of sleep/allergies). If you are young and just need a moisturizing eye cream this'll do the trick. If you're looking for something with more anti-aging properties, I would look elsewhere. Personally I think this is overpriced for what it is so I wouldn't repurchase.
