i think this works well and its a decent eye cream.
i find that it has a thick consistency but still easily absorbed by my eye area. i use it during night time and something with a lighter texture for daytime.
my eye area does has some premature fine lines and i feel that this product hydrates, plumps and smoothen them out.
decent eye cream for the price.

Let me start off by saying the cream is quite rich. I think it might be a bit on the heavy side considering the amount of moisture it provides is not amazing. I do like it though but I don't think I like it enough to repurchase as it is quite on the expensive side as with most Clinique products.
Don't get me wrong, I don't mind buying if I thought it was worth the amount that they charge for. However, in my opinion this product is overpriced for the average effect. Besides the price, I do not have any problems with this eye cream. I have not used many eye creams to compare it to. I have used The Body Shop Nutriganics Eye Cream and I like the Clinique texture better.
I have also seen on Paula B's website ( www.beautypedia.com) that packaging for moisturisers generally shouldn't rely on jar packaging and it made sense to me. Thus the low rating for packaging quality.
I will not be repurchasing and the search for a miracle eye cream continues :)
I had no luck in the past with clinique eye creams but sephora gave a very generous sample size of this one and I really liked it!
It's a cream, which I prefer over gels, and it's actually very moisturizing. I noticed that it really, really helped with these weird expresion marks I have on the outer corner of my eyes. They used to look very deep and red and the skin is smooth and not as red. I also noticed that when I stoped using it (because I ran out) and start using another eye cream my eyelids got so dry they flaked!
So I'm guessing this was very good at keeping dry eyelids at bay. I don't buy into anything that claims to reduce dark circles, and this didn't, but it looks under concealer which all I'm asking for.
I'm thinking of going for the full size.
I prefer this eyecream to all oher Clinique eyecreans as it is the richest. I do not like eyecreams which when settled in leave no residue behind. I like some emmolient protection left behind after an eye cream has set in and dries down. You can feel your undereye area 5-6 hours after the application and still feel the protection of this product.. Does it make lines/wrinkles around the eye look more corrected after 2-4 weeks of 2x/day use?? No, it does not. However, it contains anti-oxidents which definitely protect against future damage. There is some caffeine in it which will certainly reduce morning puffiness. The texture is like silk. It feels so marvelou going on. A little goes a long way as it has a wonderful "slip" to it. TIP; After all my makeup application is finished I take a small amount of this and starting at the outer eye (particularly where there are lines) and lightly dab it on and bring the leftover on my finger to smooth over the concealed inner eye area and along the top of the cheekbone which is inbetween the two. This helps float pigment that is caught in any fine lined area (outer eye area) and once it is "stippled" (then blended) over the concealer (inner eye area) it creats a sheen and makes the whole area look more hydrated The sheen brings in "light; to the outer eye, the inner eye (over concealer) and the uppermost part of the cheekbone bringing them more forward as they are now subtley hi-lited which makes any place this is applied in this manner more hydrated, fresh and healthy looking. You need a particular textur of eye cream to accompish this and Repairwear Eye Cream fits the bill nicely! Highly Recommended!!
I couldn't figure out why my eyes were red and burning and I am always very careful not to get my eye cream in my eyes. So, I started eliminating products on my face. I just put this eye cream on and here it goes - my eyes are burning and turning red. Came here to see what others thought and totally agree with the last reviewer. RED EYES AND BURNING!!!! I expect them to take this cream back. Unbelievable! Thought Clinique was all about dermo testing.
Avoid this eye cream. Despite my fair skin and freckles, I rarely am sensitive to any products, and this made my eyes go crazy with burniness/itchiness...I had to return to the Clinique Counter today, and I picked up All About Eyes eye cream. We'll see how that works.
I like the way this feels. It isn't greasy or heavy and I feel like it is doing a great job. I always like Clinique's packaging and consider their pricing to be moderate and fair.
AVOID!! I used a sample of this product last night and woke up with swollen eyes...I could hardly see out of the right eye. I must have had an allergic reaction?! White bumps starting to develop under eye as well. Never had any problems with eye cream before and don't consider my skin to be sensitive.
I bought this product when I ran out of my normal eye-care regimen, and wanted to save an extra $20 on the cheaper (though still pricey) and well-known Clinique. I did NOT make a good choice. This stuff seems to be magical when you put it on - it's rich, thick and applies well, and it leaves a shimmer on your eyes right after application. And, then, it does nothing more. I've noticed no change in my undereye appearance, and, while I did start working a new job right before I purchased this stuff, my under eye appearance has seemed to gotten slightly worse. I wanted a preventive product that's appropriate for a 26 year old, and, according to the Clinique rep, this was it - she was very, very wrong. It's an aesthetic product, depending on its brand name and initial impression as an expensive, thick product, and essentially does nothing past the first few minutes after application. I'm returning to my previous product, Caudalie Eye and Lip Serum, as soon as I'm done with this stuff. It's better to spend an extra twenty bucks and get results, than to spend the inordinate amount of $43 for a product that only looks good and does virtually nothing.
I wanted something more moisturizing, that I can use during night and in the morning my eyes are still moisturized. In the mean time fighting aging and new lines. I do not have dark circles, puffiness. However, this eye cream felt too sheer, almost faded on skin and in the morning my eye area was super dry. It is also super exepensive $50 (in Canada) so I returned it after just 2 days.
I dont like how sales person at Clinique keeps saying - "We are the best line out there, we are number one", etc. No, they are not, their line includes Titanium Dioxide and other ingredients that are not good for skin and breaks me out.
