A lot of poor reviews deterred me from purchasing this. It was only when I got a few samples that I was able to give it a shot and Within about a week for using it (daily) I saw results (fine lines slowly smoothing out). Now I can't go to bed without applying it!
However, although its working well wrinkle wise, it hasn't worked for me in terms of dark circles.
I was bought this as a gift from a friend who works for Philosophy. It does feel nice, doesn't irritate my eyes and you only need a little bit. I must say, I haven't noticed any results other than removing dryness under my eyes as a moisturiser would. Doesn't particularly help with puffiness or dark circles, even after months of use.
Again, my many thanks to fellow Makeup Alley members for turning me on to this eye cream! I have always had a problem with dark circles underneath my eyes for as long as I can remember, and have tried countless products in the hope that it would diminish or at the very least ,make even the slightest improvement for my dark circles. I bought this a few weeks ago and was not expecting any dramatic results- boy was I wrong! After just a few uses, my dark circles have improved significantly and I no longer look like a walking zombie lol! I have oily, acne prone skin, and from my personal experience, I haven't developed any irritation yet from using this product. I have definitely experienced a significant overall brightening of my circles and will continue to use this religiously to maintain these effects! Everyone's skin and sensitivity is different, but for me, this has proven to be a remarkable product that has actually done what it claims to do- for that alone consider me impressed! Again, my skin is fairly thick and rarely gets irritated from useage of retinols, AHA's or peels, so this may not work for you if your skin is very sensitive. I wanted to share my personal results which are quite impressive to get me to take the time to write a review! My many thanks to all the reviewers who took the time to share their personal results- if it weren't for you, I would never have tried this and I and my disappearing dark circles thank you!!
I've been using this product for a year and I'm still using the same bottle. I use it once a day in the morning. Sometimes again at night. I have terrible bags under my eyes, very dark circles from my parents that would be very dark from the inner corner of my eye and continue to the other side of my eye... Half circle of darkness. And the beginning of fine lines.
This product has completely vanished the bags under my eyes... No puffiness what so ever. I still have darkness but only in the inner corner now. But like I said my dark circles were reallllly bad. It has also firmed up the delicate skin. Still have a few lines but they have not gotten worse.
I will absolutely buy this again. Yes it's a little pricey $66 in Canada before tax but worth it considering it has lasted so long. The pump is perfect! Pumps out the smallest amount! I do wish the packaging was clear so I had an idea of how much is left. But I can live with that.
I have had such terrible dark circles since I was young (probably has to do with genetics) and really wanted something to help tame them. I tried this product because a sephora rep recommended it to me and I loved it! it really minimized my dark circles greatly within a month! it is pricy but the product lasted a really long time for me
Great eye cream that sinks right into skin and doesn't irritate my eyes at all. I've also noticed that my dark circles don't look as bad and the redness I usually have has definitely gotten better. Pricey but has anti-aging ingredients which are a must for someone in their 30's!!
I have tried using this product for a month . I got a semple from phylosophy. it works for me. I have dark ring around the eyes. This product made ithem brighter. it is quite expensive but worth buying. it's good choice for some one who has dark ring aruond the eyes.
I received this as a deluxe sample with an online order from Sephora, and by some fluke they included two in my box. I'm not complaining! They're gone now, but lasted quite a long time - maybe took me around a year or longer to deplete both samples, and I think they were around 0.2-0.25 ounces per sample. So I'm guessing the regular size would last quite a while, depending on use.
It helped with my dark circles, certainly - I've always had them (genetics), and I noticed they haven't been as bad. However, I have also been regularly consuming a very high concentration of B12, and I found out recently that B12 really helps with dark circles. So that may be the reason...
It also wasn't the MOST moisturizing eye cream (I wouldn't even call it a cream, it's pretty thin) I've ever tried.
Won't repurchase (well, I never actually purchased it to begin with) simply because of the steep price and the fact that I'm uncertain that it really did much for me.
Kay, this is only my second day using Eye Hope, so I will do a follow up in a few weeks.
So far, Eye Hope delivers on addressing the under-eye circles pretty well on the first night of use! I wish it was more moisturizing, but my skin care regime allows for extra moisture coverage so I guess it makes up for it. I don't have much lines around my eye, but I'll see if there are any improvements in a few weeks. This product did not sting for me on the first night, but tonight I used my Boscia Night Serum with retinol (I believe) so there was very slight stinging. However, my tolerance for pain is rather high so what's not painful to me, could be to others.
Oh, one con: I noticed a few tiny raised white bumps, aka milia (I believe). Just for that reason, I probably won't repurchase, but I won't return the item just yet either.
Overall, I love the improvements of my under-eye circles, but that's about it.
*****Update*** This product does not do what it says except maybe help with the under-eye circle (but not nearly enough). I will NOT be repurchasing. My wrinkles are still there, even after using this every night.
I only tried samples of this... I have to say that if you use it in conjunction with a retinol product, it does sting, but otherwise for me it doesn't. It's not as good as my favorite combination (Fast Lift Eye Serum + Renergie), but it does fine.
