not entirely sure if this helps reduce the appearance of lines yet, but it does keep my undereye area moisturized and does NOT cause milia which was one of my main concerns. yay! will follow and report back.
I wasn't a fan of this at first. I felt it took too long to dry, and just kind of sat on top of my skin. But over time I learned how to work with it. I get up pretty early each morning for work. I apply it right after washing my face, and then do some morning chores. Come back after about 10 min and apply my moisturizer all over, wait another 5 minutes, and then apply makeup.
My under eyes look hydrated all through the day and my makeup stays put nicely.
I have gone through two bottles over the years, and have never had any irritation or milia from it. At one point I tried a different product and it was terrible. It was amazing to see the difference!
This is the worst eye cream I've ever used. It made my undereyes so dry, the fine lines showed up clearer than ever. The cream also has a very thick consistency, which made applying concealer over it a challenge. I'm never touching this stuff again!
I was going to buy this cream until I learned it has Methylparaben as an ingredient.Parabens are known to cause cancer.I will avoid this product and buy one that is paraben-free.Very disappointing because it has great reviews, Clinique should consider making all of their products paraben-free.
I really like this eye cream. I needed an under eye cream with some more "umph", and the Clinique SA recommended this to me. It is very moisturizing, and seems to last all day. Usually my under eye area gets lined and crepey towards the end of the day, but it gets much less so with this cream. I have sensitive eyes and skin, but haven't noticed any irritation like in the other reviews--but then again, I don't apply up to my lash line, or on my upper lids. Very happy with this product.
I have tried loads of eye creams, most recently Lancome Primordiale, Nivea DNA and Lush. Bought this one with a mascara to get the free gift. I've never had an eye cream which actually made a visible difference before, i assumed they just had some sort of long term benefit. Astonished to find within 3 days of using this that the little lines under my eyes had apparently disappeared! I suppose they are plumped out or hidden, but I could hardly see them, it's a miracle!

I am only 24 but use this cream as a preventative more than anything...however I love the feeling when I wake up and I've put this on the night before - my eyes feel almost tight and I look very awake and refreshed. I'm noticing that the days when I come to work and haven't worn it the night before people commenting "you look tired" etc...amazing stuff, no wrinkles as yet to judge effectiveness on though, sorry :)
I tried this product when staying at a friend's house for a week. She told me to keep it as she felt it did nothing for her. I've been using it for three more weeks and find that it is not moiurizing at all and if possible, the lines around my eyes appear more evident. I'm going back to Lancome even though the price is so high. I have used Lancome eye cream for 25 years and although I try a new "miracle" cream at least once a year, I always come back to Lancome.
After trying multiple drugstore brands and other Clinique eye creams, this is my current cream until something better comes along. The funny thing is that it's not all that great considering it makes my eyes feel exhausted the next morning when I wear it at night - so I only use it during the day. Add to that, it also gives me milia (probably because it's such a thick cream) - so I can only use it every other day. You might then be wondering why I gave it 4 lippies? Well it actually does improve the look of fine lines and hydrates the eye area very well. I look rested and my makeup looks better when I use it. Being an Anti-gravity product, it is meant for more mature skin so if you are just starting to add this eye cream to your routine, use it sparingly until you know if you're as sensitive to it as I am.
