Not as good as the face serum capsules of this same line. It does a very good job of moisturizing my eye area that I don't feel the dryness that I usually feel with all my other eye serum products before. Other than that,I don't quite see the improvment of lines and firmness. Also, it doesn't get absorbed as easily as the face serum does.

Judging by the reviews, I'm guessing this product is really only effective for the thirty and up age range.
The foreign exchange student I subleased for left a brand new package of these behind, and I'm glad I didn't pay for it.
I've been using it for a few weeks now with no results. Granted, I didn't have many wrinkles. There are only 2 fine lines beneath my eyes and they haven't left yet.
Maybe I'll keep these for when I'm older.
The packaging is luxurious looking, however the capsules are very inconvenient. They are hard to open and contain copious amounts of product.

I have got a few fine lines under my eyes which just don't seem to go, no matter what product I use. I tried so many eye creams, from drugstore to high end but nothing helped reduce those lines. After reading all these wonderful reviews on MUA I decided to try these capsules. But they are soooo expensive so I got 5 caps as sample. So glad I didn't waste my money on these coz they did absolutely nothing for the fine lines nor the puffiness nor dark circles. I expected this to at least reduced the fine lines but have been disappointed :(

Got this as GWP. There are seven capsules so plenty for testing. It feels like oil but it sinks in quite fast. No SPF but is strictly for moisture. I don't see any improvement on my skin (under eye). One capsule gave me about 3-4 applications.
- how to keep capsule to stay up when there are more liquid left
- treatment so no SPF
- sometimes liquid squirts all over my hands while twisting the top to open it

This is a product really worked for aged eyes. what it did is plumping the eyes without hurt sensitive skin.the only problem is that if you have aged but puffy eyes while fatigue, it will solve find lines and look younger by plumping your eyes, but your eyes will be more puffy because of the plump effect

I love these eye capsules & use them in combo with the face capsules. I have been using them for 1.5 mths & have found that they firm & brighten my eye area. My fine lines & crows feet are diminished, but not eliminated. I use these every night & sometimes during the day. The formula appears to be suitable for year-round use on my skin. It is not as heavy as the face capsules. I only need to use about 1/2 a capsule at a time, so a capsule will last me 1-2 days depending on whether I use just at night or morning, too.
As I just mentioned in my review of the face capsules, here is my routine for opening & storing: I use a stick pin to puncture the twist tab end & then store any partially used capsules in a contact lens case. I use one side for an eye capsule & the other for a face capsule.
I do find that these work best when I combine with a moisturizer. At night I sometimes also layer in the eye area some omega 3-6-9 fish oil from a supplement capsule.

The product seems to be really effective & it makes my eyes look less crepey on top. I thought it was pretty inexpensive $60 for a month. I really hate the packaging & it is the only reason I would not buy this again. It comes in little seperate caps that are so hard to open! I have to warm them in my hand & then twist off the top w/a towel. This is ridiculous! I just dread doing that twice a day. I bought the product because of the reviews on this board & it is fine. Redo the packaging!

These are great little capsules. work well-makes makeup go on smoothly and hasn't caused Milia. That Macys review put in below is a crock. At most the capsule (with a pin hole in it) is out for 2 days. Millions of women use products in jars that last for months-what about those germs??? I don't put any credence on that macys review.

So far these capsules are the best thing i have tried for the eyes perfect for very dry sensitive skin. have been using it for almost two months amazing product and the way they keep them in capsules is genius.

Feb 17 2012 update:
Okay I gave this product another chance after reading the cosmetic cop website... (I don't always agree with Paula, but she does has more knowledge then I do when it come to ingredients)
The packaging make the anti-aging, cell communicate ingredient stable, but its quite a bothersome everytime you need to twisted the capsule... and the company didn't put any parabens in, its a good thing, but it means I need to used it ALL up at once! One capsule is too much for my area... so I need to wear maybe the last 1/3 on my neck area. (I have lines on my neck but pretty much wrinkle-free on face area!)
Funny thing is... I noticed if I wear this serum alone, I will wake up with dryer eye, and that is the main reason why I rate it low before. However, if I add on slight eye-cream... preferable the emollient one on top of it... it will work out fine! Its just like you need to apply face cream on top of the serum in order to lock all the goodies.
This cost 62$CND for 60 capsule.... it is pricy for you will have to finish one capsule within one night. (2 months for 62$!)
Overall, due to the harsh dry winter here.... my skin have better result then last year summer time. So I might repurchase this during winter time. But this isn't the standard eye-cream for everyone, so if you don't want all the trouble, stay away! But if you are willing to do skin-care steps and doesn't mind the cost, it is a good eye "Serum" during cold season!

Firstly, my eyes are ultra super duper out-of-the-world sensitive and prone to eczema. All the eye creams and serums i have used ( clarins (2 dif types), lancome (4 dif types) , clinique, garnier, bio essence, haba lady, etc) either gave me dry, red flaky reactions, milia seeds or made my eczematic eyes worse. and im talking about really really bad eczema as in like all around my eye area, both of it!!! after using this, my eczema did not appear and the eye area were smooth, plumped and hydrated. IM EXTREMELY, ULTIMATELY DELIGHTED!! This is now my HG eye product. After a week of using this magic capsule, the line around my eyes does not appear obvious and since it hydrates my eye area, the dark circles around my eyes appear less dark and a bit lighter. this product will stay with me for life.

I decided that at 33 I need to find something to combat all the damage I've done to myself over the years and saw these reviews. I cannot use the face capsules yet as they contain retinol and I'm pregnant but will be getting them eventually if they are anything as fabulous as these!
The same as others, I put a pin hole in the top of a capsule (got four free ones to trial from ea counter) and these is plenty of oil for three uses. They plump up the skin immediately and I will be saving up to make a full purchase. I only use them once St night so they will last a long time but they are expensive. Can't wait to try facial ones and the corresponding night cream which also has great reviews!

I just had to add my review for these little wonderous capsules. At first I balked at the price and design but decided to give it a try after reading the rave reviews...and I'm SO glad I did. Let me just say that at 39yrs old I have tried a large variety of expensive eye treatments. Some good, some bad, some are just cleverly marketed creams with nothing but fillers. These on the other hand are amazing and I saw results almost immediately. When I first opened the capsule oil came oozing out which was a huge turn off as I have very sensitive eyes. Reluctantly I applied it to my eyes and within 10mins my skin absorbed every last drop and I was left with smooth, hydrated, plump skin. My concealer has NEVER gone on so smoothly. I've only been using this for a week but I can already see and feel amazing results. I will update in 4-6wks on whether or not the results are continuous as we all know some products are great outta the gate but slow or stop working over time. Oh and if you cant afford the dept store price try buying just the sample gwp sets on eBay. I saw a package of 12 capsules for 9.99 a few days ago. Or you may find them at Marshalls or TJs for fraction of Nordys price.

Amazing product!!! I purchased a sample sized pkg.(7) of these along w/the facial capsules, & am so glad I did. I'm a new member of mua & was searching for something that works. Im tired of spending a ton of money, joining club offers ,& burning off my eyelids w/my trial -n-error methods. So I found the reviews of the smart, beautiful, VALUABLE, ladies here at mua. This is actually the 1st purchase ive made ,based on the high opinions of this product. My trouble is, I recently turnd 40 this year & my facial skin is starting to show signs of aging. Im feeling very uncomfortable about the lil lines around my eyes, the more pronounced creases on the lids, & the dullness of my complexion overall. I was very self conscious about this. I was feeling "not so pretty"anymore & actually, kinda old. As I mentioned earlier, Ive tried alot of different products w/little, temporary, or no results. Ive never ran into any product that was fabulous, or fantastic...until now. These lil eye capsules are incredible. Ive used them (along w/the facial capsules) now for only 2 nights, & the results are astounding!!! My husband even askd me if I was using different makeup becuz I look 10 yrs younger!! But the best is: I SEE THE RESULTS!!! No more lil lines. No creasy eyelids. My eyes look bigger, more alert. I love these capsules!!! I had a lil hyperpigmentation starting on my left cheek, the E.A Ultra Gold facial capsule took care of that, & Im talking in 2 nights. I will never live w/o these again & am so happy I finally found something that works. If u "feel my pain" about growing (looking) older, get these!!! They are magical, really- Thank u again to the ladies w/ great opinions on mua. And "Thank u" mua for allowing consumers to share. Mua is an invaluable tool that really help women like me!!!

I used La Prairie white caviar serum and caviar eye cream for the eye. it was such a waste of money, and the lines became worst around the eyes.
Then I tried this product and it immediately had wonderful results. its a great product , I too used the capsule more than once but then I came across this article which I want to share here. I am not sure how viable it is but will share it anyway.
Reviews for Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Lift and Strengthening Eye Capsules
October 14, 2010 "Anyone who tells you to ignore Arden and use these or the facial capsules,more than once,is giving you dangerous advise.They are packaged this way for a reason,it keeps the company from having to use preservatives.By leaving them open, you are creating a perfect enviroment for bacteria to introduce itself.Do yourself a favour,and use them up.I have used them for @ least 15 years,on my face,neck,decoletteand hands.They work wonders there too,and 1 capsule does that all.''

I love it! It is the only product under the eyes that I tried that worked. Softened lines and plumped up my skin. I use one capsule under my eyes and the rest all over my face and neck as a treat twice a week. Otherwise, one capsule lasts for 3 uses under the eyes. A great product.

Got a sample of these and I've really been on the hunt for something to make my eyes look better. The lines are getting deeper, they're getting darker and I never had puffiness and now getting that too. I push a pinhole in the top of the capsule so I can get 2 or 3 uses out of one capsule. Saves money and waste of product... however.... I am AMAZED at this product. I read somewhere on MUA that eye creams are just too heavy for the delicate eye area (makes sense) and I have not found a gel I am thrilled with. But these capsules rock! My eyes look so damn good in the morning and throughout the day! I can only hope with continued use it will get even better but the immediate improvement I saw is quite impressive. I am in love with EA products - the more I use, the more I like. These are pricey but if you can use 1 capsule 2 or 3 x with the pinhole idea I think it's well worth it. I will definitely be buying the full size when I run out of the samples I have. FINALLY something my eyes are reacting to!

This upgrade of the original formula is one of the best eye products available. The capsule packaging allows for fewer preservatives and the clear gel consistency means less weight on the delicate eye area. You can easily keep any extra product (one capsule lasts one to three applications!) by putting the capsule in a small airtight container like a clean/sterile lip balm jar or carefully kept away from water on your counter or dresser. This is the first product since Origins discontinued Line Chaser that has reversed any fine lines for me. Granted , I have virtually no lines around my eyes but this is primarily because I have used an eye GEL-not cream- and an eye area sunscreen/sunglasses virtually without missing day, since I was 17 AND I almost never drink alcohol. I can knock five plus years of my age if I choose too which is fun! Eye cream is too weighty for the delicate tissues of the under eyes and only viable when it has a sun screen in it. Gels are usually thought of as drying but you can find one to swap your eye cream for that will deliver more moisture if you search. This has peptides, oils and slight toning properties that will hit all bases--- I love it!

I had a sample of this, which consisted of 7 capsules. So, I used it for a week before sleep.
Well, I think it's good that oil is preserved in capsules and it stays fresh. But one capsule contains so much oil, that I could use it for about 3 times. But I can not keep it for 3 days after I open it. So, it's really waisty....
I also didnt like that fact, that when I applied it.. it created a small foam... just like soap or something... It made me feel suspicious.
Overall I didnt see any diffirence under my eyes after using it for a week. Well, may be its too short time.
I wanna see other reviews on this product!
