I REALLY wanted this to be the end all be all of eye creams but I've been using it for a few weeks now and haven't noticed any dramatic change so far. I'm 28 years old and have noticed some fine wrinkles around my eyes - couple that with eye bags (genetic I fear) and I've been on the lookout for an eye cream that would reduce the puffiness and make my eyes seem brighter.

This product MOISTURISED just fine, but I didn't notice anything beyond that. Back to the drawing board for my ideal eye cream.

I got a whole bunch of samples of this eye cream at Khiel's about a month ago with my purchase of the Concentrate and I've been using them every night since. I really like this cream. It truly hydrates my dry under eye area and I wake up with the skin there feeling very soft and smooth I've found it also keeps my skin from flaking (thank god!) and I'll be pretty sad when I run out of samples as I find the price to be kinda high. This cream has left my under eye area feeling much more hydrated than most eye creams I've tried. Though I find the price bit hefty, I love this cream and I'll probably purchase it as soon as I run out of samples.

The skin around my eyes is pretty normal in terms of dry/oiliness. It is sensitive and my pores clog easily. I'm still (currently) under the age of 30 so I don't need any special eye creams but I wanted something that was moisturizing and preventative. I'm a fan of the Midnight Recovery Serum so I was really excited when this came out. I like this eye cream. It does what I need it to do. It doesn't clog my pores and its not greasy. I'm not sure if REALLY does anything for fine lines/puffiness/dark circles because I don't really have these issues. I noticed a bigger difference with the Midnight Recovery Serum than with the eye cream, but it certainly doesn't have any adverse effects on my skin so I am happy. I also love the packaging and how its in a little squeeze tube. Its no fuss, lightweight, compact and hygienic. I use mine nightly and have had it for probably one year now, and it's still not finished (although it's headed there). I would recommend this eye cream to anyone without any major eye concerns but has sensitive skin prone to clogged pores.

I really like this eye cream. It smells great, not too thick. Hydrates nicely. I notice my eyes are a little less puffy. The dark eye circle looks a little better. Its not a huge significant change but since I had used it for 5 months, I notice some graduate difference. I'm still on my first tube and I think it will last a few more months. This is by far the best eye cream I've had. Did not give me any break outs. It is well absorb on my skin. 100% recommend. Light enough to use day and night.

I have tried many eye creams in the search to find one that can reduce my dark circles and puffiness and it really wasn't an easy task. There's not a lot of eye creams that really does what it says but when I tried the sample of this eye cream and immediately saw the results the next day I was hooked.
I woke up with eyes that really looked awake! There was no puffiness or dark circles under my eyes and a little goes a long way. After about 5months I am still using my first tube! and I use it every night.
I did not use this cream for a few nights last month to test if it still does work and that my skin hasn't got used to it and my puffiness and dark circles re-appeared - so I can say that this cream really does work!

Sorry to bring down ratings, but I can't say this is anything but a lotion. I really can't feel any difference when I use this. The nice thing is it may be good for daytime cause its not greasy? There is no cooling, tightening...really anything. Maybe good for prevention in your young years before 25 or for men. But really anyone women older than that I would assume needs something stronger. It's nice, but for a lil more money there has to be better, like Caudalie brand eye cream. Yet this doesn't irritate my eyes at all, doesn't make my eyes water.

This is an average eye cream, nothing really to fault about it except for that it clouds my vision. A no-no for contact lens wearers. It moisturises but does nothing in terms of anti-ageing or correction and as such i would recommend this to younger girls with no signs of ageing. Its a good starter eye cream but nothing to rave home about. The price is also great, so give it a go but don't expect miracles.

Initially, I couldn't really tell what difference this made, but I vowed to use it everyday since it is pretty expensive. A little bit of this stuff goes a long, so mine has lasted me for months already. The other day, I was being lazy and decided not to use it at night and the next morning when I woke up I really noticed the difference! This stuff reduces darkness under my eyes and firms my eye area, so when I wake up, my eyes are appear brighter and more youthful. I cannot believe what a difference I saw when I went one night without it—this stuff really works! The tube is packaged in such a way that it is hygienic and allows you to get the most amount of product out of it. I really feel like this is worth the money I spent for it, as it truly works and it will last me a really long time!

My eyes have always looked tired in the mornings and the last two years I've hidden that by using a good concealer. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery eye cream applied every night has actually made a difference in the severity of my undereye shadows and puffiness - I can tell because I haven't had to apply as much concealer to brighten my undereye area. I noticed the change within a week of applying this every night. One thing to note is that I don't find this eye cream as hydrating as most, so for very dry skintypes, you may need to layer another eye cream on top.

This is a good basic eye cream. I didn't notice any fine line reduction or lessening of dark circles, but it did keep the eye area hydrated and didn't blur my vision. I would repurchase with expectations in check.
