My eyes react to eye creams pretty strongly. Essential oils, fragrances, etc. make them sting, and I'm allergic to shea butter (which is in most of the other Clinique eye cream's), plus I've yet to find an eye cream that didn't make my eyes really puffy the in the am. So for the six months or so, I've just being using a drop of avocado oil under my eyes which is working fairly well, but I keep looking for an eye cream, just in case there's something out there that works better. The thing I like about this eye cream compared to the other Clinique eye creams - is that is has the least amount of liquid plastic (silicones) in it. It does have a lot of ingredients, but 95% of them are antioxidants and amino acids. The sample I tried seemed very thick and difficult to spread -- I needed it to sit on my eyes for a few seconds to warm up before I could blend it in. Ultimately, I added some avocado oil to it, to help it be a little creamier, as well as help it be a little more emollient - because this is not emollient enough for me. Unfortunately, it did make my eyes pretty puffy the next day, so I'll be sticking with my avocado oil (health food store, food section).

Got this free from Allure magazine and I love it. After using 2x day for a couple of weeks my awful undereye circle have faded dramatically. This stuff is pretty expensive, but you use so little at a time a jar will last a long time. Worth it to brighten eye area. EDIT: it gave me millia i cant get rid of. threw it away.
Got this as a sample. I apply it in the evenings after my shower. It has a nice creamy texture to it. However, by bedtime my eye area is dry again and doesn't even feel like it was moisturized.
I love this eye cream! I have very sensitive eyes and can only use Clinique eye creams without having a reaction. I started using All About Eyes years ago, and bumped up to the rich formula when it came out. I needed more moisture and the salesperson suggested this. I am very impressed! It really moisturizes and plumps up my little crinkly lines. No reaction and my skin has not been irritated. The only thing I would change is that it came in a tube. It's great under my concealer in the morning and I apply it extra thick at night. Love it!
Pros: Fragrance free, non-irritating. It may be suitable for skin-types that aren't prone to dryness.
Cons: It pills terribly and leaves white flakey bits of product under my eyes. It did not visibly benefit my skin in any way. It's not that hydrating or rich for a product that has the word 'intensive' in the title. I would not repurchase.
Pretty good eye cream. Doesn't seem to repair, but it provides a good amount of moisture and did not irritate my skin.
I got a sample of this eye cream along with Repairwear day and a Clinique toiletries bag with my purchase.I haven't tried anything from the Repairwear line so i was keen to try it.This really moisturises my under eye area and seems to lighten my dark circles.(My dark circles are hereditary!Curses!!!)]
Overall,i love this one and i m probably going to get a jar.Im just curious of the ingredient ''Muru Muru Butter'' in this cream.Haha.
i bought this last christmas time as more of a preventitive than a treatment (i do have the beginnings of a few very fine lines right under my lower lashline) but only started using it regularly a few months ago. well, i've given it atleast 3 months, and although it's a terrific moisturizer and works well under makeup, i haven't seen any reduction in lines or ANY fading of dark circles, and i have very dark hereditary circles. it makes me feel so left out to read it's helped others with this, my biggest beauty problem! definitely not me. not a bad product, but nothing more than a glorified moisturizer imo.
I have very dark circles and it is one of my main beauty struggles. I just started using this product and already notice a difference in my dark circles. Kudos to Clinique!
After using this product religiously for 2 weeks I noticed that my little lines under my eyes are getting much worse and some new ones have quickly sprung up. I discontinued use and the lines have softened. Changed my rating to 1 lippie.
