I should preface this review by saying that I'm not quite 30 but am very self conscious of my under eye bags and dark circles that I get from my high stress job. I started using this eye cream a few years ago and came back to it recently when I noticed how tired I look.
The consistency of the cream is my favorite thing about the product-it feels amazing and absorbs very well. It also works great under makeup.
Most importantly though is that I think the results are quite dramatic. I would pay the high price for this eye cream again and again.

Well, starting off this product is great for preventative aging. This high-tech eye cream includes a unique growth factor which helps produce collagen. It is a very rich eye cream- perfect for my dry skin. So far, no crows feet, not a wrinkle in sight. I'm still quite young, but I feel this will greatly improve my changes of off-putting in wrinkles around the eye area in my near future. I've learned, if you have dry skin, to get the results you want, you may have to spend a little more than some people with oilier skin. So while this product may retail at or around $90, I fee like it is worth every penny.

i been using this product for about 2 months after the lady at the skin care office told me this would do miracles for me.. well.. i havent notice nothing. too expensive ..... tired of trying everything under the sun..wished i knew something that truly works!!!!

Works Works Works!!!! That is all I can say and I have only been using it for 1.5 weeks. My husband has even commented on how smooth my face feels and looks. It totally works. I woke up this morning feeling super crummy and achy. I looked in the mirror and was immediately put into a happy mood because I thought my skin (especially around my eyes) looked amazing. My fine lines are gone and deep smile wrinkles are decreased. No puffiness either. I started the product after my aunt referred it to me...I was trusting because her skin looked amazing!!! It is worth the price and if you shop around you can ALWAYS find a good deal. It seems pricey but you get what you pay for ...IT WORKS....I have tried plenty of other grocery store creams....none worked like this!!!

This is the worst eye cream I have ever tried, after using this, my skin became rough, flaky, extremely dry and gross!!!
I would never repurchase or recommend this product to anyone.

I found this website and just love it! Have spent hours reading all the comments by everyone and they are so helpful.
I purchased this product from my Dermatolgist on Nov 1st and have been using it ever since then. I use every night and morning and the results have been unreal! I still sometimes can not believe what an improvement this product has done for me.
My eyes appear brighter, more mostiurized and no more visible wrinkles. I would also get the dry folds under the eyes that wer embarrasing... but they are gone. It is a true miracle...
It would be generally time for me to get botox, but I honestly do not need it. My last injections were done in July and since then I have switched from Dermalogica to Skin Medica and my skin looks better at 37 than when I 20 something.
So for anyone that needs moisture and fresh look under your eyes... this is it.. and I do not have any dark circles or bags (which i get from allergies)

I seriously have no idea what this product is doing for my eye.
Doesn't help at all with dark circles or puffiness. I been using it for a month and absolutely no change at all. I even had much better results with the other eye cream i tried, its called avalon eye cream.
This cream cost $90!!! for a cream that cost so much and doesn't do a thing, i cant help but to give it 1 star.

I've been using this eye cream for two weeks and I already notice an immediate difference in fine lines around my eyes. They look much softer and yesterday when I was at the hairdresser without any makeup, I noticed there were no dark circles or puffiness, which is normally the first thing I notice under the bright lights. Aside from results, this is one soft, velvety eye cream. At first glance it looks like it would be just another heavy, greasy cream, but the texture is actually quite light - almost mousse-like and a little goes a long way. It feels great going on and absorbs nicely without too much patting or rubbing. It's packaged in an elegant jar, though I wish it was in an air-tight container to keep the contents stable. It's not cheap ($90), but it works, which is more than I can say for ZO Skin Health's Eye Repair ($130) and actually made my skin look worse.

Personally, I'm not super impressed. For $90 I expect more in an eye cream. I have used it every night for 3 months now and don't really notice much, if any difference. I have used Olay eye creams that work just as well for much less. Don't waste the money. Better out there for less. Have not found my HG yet. Still looking.

This one stands alone. It is very unlike most eyecreams I've used in several ways. First, it works! Softens even the deeper lines-not just fine lines, greatly reduces undereye bags, is
improving dark circles and seems to be reducing the milia in the dark circles that get more noticeable with age. You only need a small amount and patting it in works better than smoothing because I've noticed that if you smooth it under eyes or use too much it will pill or ball up and become flaky. It's got a bit of a different consistency to it. Maybe that has something to do with why it's so effective. Don't notice any scent either which is a plus! Love it...

this is the only eye cream that i can positively say IT WORKS!!!! after 2 weeks of using it every night, my fine lines are noticeably softer, my eyes are not puffy when i wake up, and overall, the area under my eyes look brighter. this is by far the best eye cream i've tried to date. it piles up if you use too much. i haven't tried wearing it in the day time under makeup though. for daytime, i use revaleskin eye serum, which does a good job of hydrating and works well under makeup.

I LOVE this product. This is one of the first eye creams that I have ever tried that I can truly say that I love! It feels amazing, super creamy, but not heavy. A little goes a super long way so for the price it's a really good value since it lasts for so long. I use it morning and night and have noticed a huge difference with the hydration around my eyes. No wrinkles!

This is an awesome product without a doubt. It is my new HG eye cream. I only wish it came in a pump or a tube to preserve the ingredients more effectively. This is a very expensive product, so I buy it when Skinwest has it on sale. A small bit is all that is needed to cover the under eye & corner areas. It is not recommended for the lids. The fine lines around my eyes have improved exponentially with regular use. I highly recommend, especially for ladies of my age group who spent way too much time in youth soaking up the rays.

HG HG HG! I am SO in love with this eye cream...! Where has it been all my life? I feel like I have tried everything and spend tons on you name it....This is the ONLY cream that totally gets rid of my puffiness and under eye circles. When I wake up in the morning...even after not getting a lot of rest, I have NO puffiness. My eyes look bright and nice...which makes my whole face just look better in general. I have only been using this for a week, so I don't know about long term results...but it really does the job I need it to do right now. Worth every single penny!

This one is worth a glowing report. I have used it for several months now. A little does go a long way, so don't be discouraged by the price (I actually think it's reasonable). Prior to this, I used an Obagi night eye cream and was not impressed at all. Since I have been using this product, the lines around my eyes have softened dramatically. It addition, the hereditary bags are much less noticeable and not as puffy.
I have no intention of switching to something else, I have a hard time believing that I could get better results. Another review mentioned milia and I have noticed an increase in milia or clogged pores around the inside part of my eye. I don't necessarily think there is a link between the appearance of those and this product, but it is curious that you should refer to them. My derm said they are probably hormone related, I am 53.

Update: In addition to below, the milia is completely gone, the skin around my eyes looks like it has concealer/foundation on--it is that smooth and flawless!
I totally agree with the post below. I have used 3 or 4 jars of this cream--and I have noticed a big difference. My eyes are brighter, smoother and plumper. Will repurchase.

SkinMedica has finally come out with a night eye repair cream made with their patented TNS Nouricel MD, peptides, vitamins A, C and E and hyluronic that is suitable for dry, normal, combination, oily, aging and sensitive skin. I have very oily skin, which includes oily skin around my eyes, right to my eyelids. I purchased this night eye cream because I wanted to keep the lines, darkness and milia that developed from other eye creams at bay. I'm 50 and what I have is really minimal in these areas. Two months ago I started using this cream every night, and I am really happy with the results. Here is what it has done for me:
- milia is almost gone. I can see/feel this, and my sister has really noticed this.
- some noticeable lightening of darker circles around my eyes, and after only two months.
- a definite reduction of the depth of my eye laugh lines. Overall smoother texture.
As for packaging, this light cream is packaged in a nice solid jar with a lovely, shiny, silvery screw top. These visionary features add something for me - a little luxury in my bathroom. However, I know most people lean towards the pump delivery system to prevent contamination. I have a small plastic tool that I use to scoop the small amount of Night Eye Repair that I need. I then wash the plastic tool diligently with a disinfectant/antibacterial cleanser and rinse it afterwards. I'm sure a Q-Tip would work as well, as long as you remember you need very little of the product. Note: if you attempt to use too much of the product it will not absorb into your skin well. Instead, as you try to apply it to absorb into your skin, it will start to pill and flake up.
My only concern was the slight burning I got in my eyes when I started using the cream (I am a contact lens wearer). If I applied the cream too close to either my upper or lower eyelid, I'd experience a mild stinging, usually in the morning. This does not happen when I apply the cream sparingly and in the correct area. During sleep, I believe the cream and my skin oils merge together, thus making a greasier film that can make its way closer to the rims of my eyes. However, if you follow the instructions and use the cream sparingly, you should have no problem.
I took one lippie away for a combination of the higher price and the minor stinging I experience if I place the cream too close to my eyelids. Other than that, it is probably the best eye cream I have used, the one that has shown me results! I will definitely buy again.
UPDATE: 2 more months have gone by and this eye cream is amazing. I have basically no milia now, and the only lines I have are just under the inner corner of my eyes (probably because I know if I would put it there it would definitely get into my eyes and sting (as I have mentioned above).
#2 UPDATE: I'm at the 3.5 month mark with this eye cream and am still loving what it does for me. I wish I had taken 'before' pictures. My milia is gone (I can barely see it under a 10x magnifier) and I have gotten rid of some very fine lines. Don't be scared by the size of the container. It is small, but a little goes a long way with this product!
It really doesn't take much of the product to work, so for the $$$ price, it just makes sense to me to buy one product rather than try a number of them that get tossed into my makeup junk drawer. Therefore, I have given back the one lippie I took away earlier. For the price, performance and quantity required for it to work, it earns back a lippie.
