I got this in a sample size, and when I first opened it, I thought wth!?! It has a thick creamy vasaline like consistancy and does seem 'greasy' on application. I sort of left it sitting around for a while since I had full sized eye creams I was working on. Though I have some breakouts, (which plague me and I'm still looking for the answer, much of it was product related) this did NOT break me out. Somehow I decided to try it at night and from that point on I was sold. It moisturizes sooo nicely that when I woke up, I looked fresher and didn't have the greasy residue left. It really does absorb over the course of the night. My main issue for eyes would have to be under eye circles and I never really thought this would help with that, but because of the moisture it actually does. The only issue is that it has Sodium Benzoate which is a suspected health concern. I guess use your judgment on that, but it really does moisturize well for sensitive skin.

It may be somewhat moisturizing, but can't do too much, as it doesn't sink in at all - just sits on top of the skin in a greasy mess.

I tried this eye cream last night and I am very impressed! I thought that MB dermonectin was my favorite moisturizing eye cream until now. I patted a tiny bit (just enough to get my pinky finger wet with product) of this eye cream over my eye area (upper and lower) and on my lips last night before bed. Well, the moisturizer is still on my lips and both places on my face are very dewy and moisturized. This product also did not make me break out - which very rich eye creams (like MB Glycolic eye cream) make me break out where the product creeps to the skin between the eyes (cystic pimples) and to the skin on the face bone around my eyes (white heads). This is very rich so it cannot be used under makeup. Would buy over and over - but with their sample size eye creams I will not have to buy for a long long time!

This eye cream has been a godsend for my seriously dehydrated, crepey under eye skin (which I think was due to cleansing oils). Once I stopped putting the cleansing oil under my eyes (and started using a grapeseed/vitamin E oil combo instead) along with this eye cream the crepeyness went away immediately. It's quite oily and balm-like so I wouldn't rec it unless the skin under your eyes is very dry. And if you wear eye makeup I'd only use it at night. Despite all the oils in this it does not clog my pores or cause milia. Most eye creams cause milia for me and I'm attributing it to 'cones since this eye cream and Dr. Hauschka Eye Balm (also very oily) never clog my pores and they are both cone-free. Most eye creams also make my eye area worse so I'm best sticking with heavy duty moisturizing, simple formulas rather than the ones with anti-aging ingredients such as retin/retinyl palmitate.
