My best friend raved about this product, so I tried it. I like the cute packaging and the consistency, but I really didn't notice an improvement at all in dark circles and wrinkles. This would probably be a good basic eye cream for someone younger. I saw a $10 Retinol eye gel at Sally's that got rave reviews so I'll be trying that when this runs out.
Crap. I bought this just for dark circles because I don't really have any puffiness or anything and this eye cream said brightening so I thought it would probably be best. It has no effect! I mean, it might be moisturizing (haven't really checked) but it does not work on dark circles at all. I'm so annoyed I spent this much money on it cuz I don't really have a lot of money lol
This is only my first attempt at reducing dark circles, so maybe i'm missing out on some much better products out there, given the bad reviews this has received. However, for me, within a couple of days I noticed an improvement. Maybe my eye area was just dry and this helped with the darkness, I don't know, but it seems to work really well for me. Given the criticism though, when this is empty I'll probs try something else to see the difference. Although, having said that, a little of this stuff goes a really long way!
Got this in a sample pack at Ulta. Def would not buy it on it's own. It's expensive and my dark circles haven't improved.
The eye cream is horrible despite the cute packaging. I used it for about 2 weeks and found out the fine lines under my eyes are actually getting worse. Beside, it irritates my eyes badly.
First off, I have a love/hate relationship with Benefit. I love a lot of their products, but they have a habit of disregarding what they're good at and sticking their hands where they don't belong in the cosmetic world. I have to admit, I wasn't very thrilled when I found out that Benefit was coming out with a full skincare line. Other than some of their makeup removers (which are awesome) the rest of their skin products have been mediocre if not completely useless. This proved to be no different. It goes on smooth and sinks in relatively quickly considering how thick it is, but it does not help dark circles, puffiness or dehydration. I can't say anything for wrinkles since I'm only 25 and have yet to spot my first one. But with the ingredient list and the fact that Benefit has no patents of their own, I can't imagine this being superior even equal to a doctor brand or even some of the homemade recipes for eye care. Also the fragrance is kind of annoying. It hasn't bothered me, but I just don't see the point of it in skincare. That being said, I love the little jar. It was so girly and delicate I had to find a way to reuse it. I make my own facial balm that I use after my weekly home facial. It only lasts 4 months and I only use it once a week, so this little jar is just the right size to hold 3-4 months worth of my balm. Hence, the two star rating as opposed to a one star. Most of my other jars are so boring so this was at least one way that I found that gives this jar a little bit of a silver lining.
I like the jar this product comes in and the consistency of the product, but that's about it. The cream makes my eyes burn so badly, even when I apply a little away from too close to my eyes. I haven't noticed any improvement. When I want my eyes hydrated and lines repaired, I need something that means business without making me go blind.
Cute little jar though.
For $32 for only a half an ounce I expect more. This is just a basic rich eye cream. I gave it 3 weeks of daily/nightly use to be fair (and try to at least get some of my moneys worth) I can't use it during the day because its too greasy and makeup doesn't want to adhere. Can't use at night because I wake up with very puffy eyes (vaseline does the same thing). A little does go a long way.......to nowhere. If you have super dry flaky eyes then this may be your ticket. For me I'm not that desperate. No effect at all for dark circles but added bags. I love the cute jar but its all looks no substance. Also Parabens is way up the list of ingredients. Not an issue for me per se but is a deal breaker for many. I added the ingredients to the link but in case it didn't work...here it is...(a lot of fluff for something ineffective...less is more Benefit!)

Didn't like it.. Gave me these small little white pumps around my eye area. I usually get those from over hydration.
I bought this just for moisturizing and I love it! I get really dry skin under my eyes. I live in a dry climate and when fall arrives, my undereye area looks flaky. I use this morning & night and it keeps my skin moisturized better than any other eye cream I've used. I can put concealer on later and it's still moisturized. I haven't noticed a change in dark circles. For what I wanted this to do, it's perfect. Plus Benefit always gets me with their packaging. It's really cute sitting on my bathroom counter. continued >>
