So, my mom always had this in her bathroom cabinet and as far as I can remember I always used it when I could. This is such a lovely eyecream. It has a lovely yet subtile and non-irritating scent, very moisturizing, absorbs really well into the skin, it even had a bit of a blurry effect on my ienie-wienie-tiny lines in the eye-area. Overall I was quite happy with this eyecream. It did it's job very well. However, I simply cannot justify spending this amount of money on an eyecream at the moment. The price is ridiculous, in my opinion. It's a good eyecream, but it's not a miracle cream either... I'm confident that other creams (with a less expensive pricetag) work just as fine (or even better maybe).

After having tried a lot of eye creams and not having found an effective one, I paid for this one. I somehow liked its smell. The first days it made my under eye area very dry that it started peeling. Afterwards it went back to normal. I found it not very moisturizing, it did not do any change for my under eye area and was absolutely not worth the price.

This is based solely on the few tubes I got as samples from my purchase of crème de la mer. The texture is very nice. Not too thick nor too thin. It absorbs beautifully and leaves under eye areas moisturized. They've definitely improved on their eye creams and no longer sting the eyes. For the price of it I wouldn't buy it for what it offers. It's really nothing so great that would me purchase. I like that the scent is very subtle so there's no overpowering irritation from that. It's a good product but not great.

You never actually appreciate the effectiveness of a beauty product until you stopped using it. This is the only eye cream that ever brought some visible results for me. I suffer from dark circles (genetics) and at times puffiness and this is the only product that gave my eye area a glowy complexion. The special spatula de puffs the eye area and make the massage makes the product work more powerfully. Additionally it is an amazing moisturiser. No other eye cream ever served as good as make up base as this one. I know it is a hefty price tag to pay for just moisturising but when all other eye creams make my concealer crease and create wrinkles under my eyes out of nowhere (I don't have any) then I am willing to pay the price. I tried A LOT of products for my eyes of all prices and brands, this is the one I am going back. Paying £125 again surely should be convincing enough.

Only downside I guess, the packaging is a jar doesn't have a pump so it is less hygienic.

I like this very much, but I wouldn't buy it again on account of the price.
It moisturizes very well but isn't greasy, and it actually helped my dark circles slightly. I was only looking for some moisture, so when I woke up the next morning and noticed that my whole eye area looked better, I was impressed. Still, the price is a deal breaker for me, so that's why I took a point off of my overall rating and why I said I wouldn't buy it again. If I ever win the lottery, I will buy it, though.

I had a generous sample and found this totally useless. This contains eucalyptus oil which is one of the most irritating fragrant oils there is. And this in a product to be used around THE EYES It also contains fragrance.Even if I saw results with this(which I didn't) I can't justify putting irritants like this around eyes or anywhere on the face. I have not been impressed by any of the La Mer products I've tried and this is no different.This is one to skip.

I absolutely love this eye cream. While the price tag is sometimes cost prohibitive for me, I buy it whenever I can afford the splurge. I really love the applicator tip, which is multi-purpose. It keeps the jar from getting full of germs from your hands, it's far gentler than using your fingers to apply it to the delicate under-eye skin, and it helps soothe the eyes with the cooling metal, helping with any puffiness. It's light enough to use during the day, and works well even with under eye concealer over it. At night I use it as a base layer, then use a heavier eye cream like Kiehl's Avocado on top of it for extra moisture. I noticed a definite improvement in fine lines, particularly on the outside corners and between the brows. The jar lasts about three months with twice daily use.

This eye balm worked really well the first few weeks and it seemed to hit the plateau. The puffiness noticeably went away to a certain degree but didn't help me with dark circles or fine lines at all.

I was looking for an eye cream to help with puffiness under the eyes. I have not used any other eye creams before this so can't really compare to other products. After using for a week I have noticed the puffiness is reduced. I didn't want to like this because of the price. I will have to search for cheaper alternatives, this would have been perfect for me otherwise.

I received this as a sample. It did not have any effects for me. On the other hand the La Mer eye concentrate worked very well for me. I will not be purchasing the full size.
