It's good, but not spectacular. My first foray into Nuxe skincare has not been all that impressive, and apart from some mild interest in lip products, I will not be repurchasing this or (the more expensive, and presumably, more intensive) Nirvana eye cream. Apart from the packaging, there's nothing particularly grand about this eye cream. I have normal to dry, sensitive skin, with an especially dehydrated eye contour area. While I've found my HG for the AM (Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminee Eye & Lip Contour Cream), I was looking for something heavier at nighttime, that might be both more convenient to get than the Babor one I was using, and that might be a little bit cheaper. Retailing for $35 at Shoppers Drug Mart, and netting me some Bonus Optimum Points, I was eager to try this. Unfortunately, this product is just average. If you are looking for some very basic, moisture - this is a nice option for those just looking into a 'starter' eye cream. The product is quite fluid - more like a lotion than a cream, and when pushed to use it in the AM when my Caudalie stand-by had run out, this settled in quickly, and nicely under undereye concealer and YSL's Touche Eclat. Though it claimed to diminish the appearance of dark circles, I noticed no such change in my (albeit, already mild) undereye darkness. Nor did I notice any dramatic change in the look of fine lines. While it worked nicely in the AM, this doesn't have the cooling or 'pep' action (for lack of a better term) of a lot of more gel-like eye creams I have tried. This leaves me at a loss - it truly does not have enough moisture to make it worthy of a night treatment, but it also doesn't have enough rev-up effect to convince me to repurchase for use in the AM. I do not have sensitive eyes, nor am I a contact lense wearer, so for how well it would fare for people with eye conditions, I cannot say. I noticed no irritation whatsoever, either right away or after 2 months of continuous use in the PM. 2 lipsticks for the actual product (it's what inside that counts), with 1 lipstick for the packaging. It'd be nice if more eye creams came in such sanitary packaging. While I will finish the product up, as it isn't absolute crap, I will not be repurchasing.
