I do keep on buying this stuff, which seems to last a long time. I wouldn't swear to it, but I have the vague idea that when I use it, my hooded eyes are lifted just a bit. And I find the texture to be very agreeable otherwise, so why not? I like that it isn't sticky or greasy or scented or too moisturizing. The price is a bit much, but it does feel more substantial than the Regenerist eye cream to me.
Have you noticed that there are few raves on eye creams?

I again bought this after it got the tick from Paula Begoun. And because it was on sale for $NZ15 - like I said in my other Pro X review, $NZ100 is plainly ridiculous. Plus I'm a student.
Anyway, yes, this is fantastic stuff. I have fine lines and a dehydrated eye area which of course makes my fine lines look like wrinkles no matter what concealer I am using. It helps with hydrating and making my makeup go on smoother.
As someone else said the Regernerist Eye Serum is essentially the same stuff. So depending on what is on sale, I will choose accordingly.

I used up a bottle of this product and I think it did a fairly good job. However, I do not have wrinkles, but I have fine lines. It is not super moisturizing but it was great for making my eye concealer glide on effortlessly. It is not greasy. I didn't see any miracles, but I liked how it made makeup glide on better and I looked a little bit more awake when I woke up. My under eye area is dry and this products what it needs to make it not look flakey. I use differin and retin A and this helps with the flakes under and near the eyes. if you are looking for something to do miracles, then I do not think this is your product. I could not tell you what it does for wrinkles, but I think it is a good preventative eye cream for younger eyes. I think it is quite expensive for what it is and in the drugstore though. I said I would repurchase because it is great for MU and making me look more awake

I bought this product from Target for $40.00. I've been using it for almost 2 months now. I don't really see a difference in my fine lines, but it does seem to have lighten my dark circles a bit. Except that I've been sleeping better hours lately... I do like the pump action on the packaging, I hate using jars and I've been known to squeeze out too much in tubes, so this was a very nice change.
My only major complaint was that sometimes, it wouldn't absorb all the way and then I'll have this white streak on my face from the cream or that if I use too much, it would become cakey when I put on my make up.
Overall, it wasn't bad for the price but I won't be purchasing again. I'd rather pay more for a product that can give me what I want, instead of settling on one that "might" be doing it for me.

I admit this is an awesome product BUT it's pretty much a duplicate of the Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum that costs about 20.00 less.
That said, I have been lucky enough to score a few free packages of this so I'll keep using until I run out and then switch to the regenerist eye serum because it's the same product--just cheaper!

Amazing! The reviews seemed almost too good to be true, but I have to admit that after two months of use my crow's feet are almost completely gone! I don't find the price unreasonable compared to the hundreds of dollars I have spent on department store eye creams that didn't even work. Give it a try, you won't regret it!

Used up the whole container and it did nothing. Didn't do anything BAD, either - no irritation and went well under makeup. I suppose it's OK as a moisturizer but IMHO, very expensive for a drugstore brand.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Thought I would give it a try after checking out reviews. I have to say I am very please with this product!!
It goes on smooth and doesn't ball up or get gross when putting on moisturizer or make-up.
I don't have a lot of lines and no darkness under my eyes but it does help the lines and keeps everything moisturized and soft.
Will try to find it on sale It cost about $50 Canadian

I had a reaction. Awoke to puffed up eyes. I even gave it the benefit of the doubt and thought maybe it was something else and about 2 weeks later tried a little bit on the outer corner of one eye.. Lo, the outer corner of that eye started swelling within 2 hours. it's a shame because i really wanted to like this. Cute little pump bottle, nice texture cream, my fingers felt very smooth after applying.. I read a similar experience from a reviewer below who called olay and i followed suit. one week later and i have a voucher for a free olay product of my choice! Yay for good customer service! (FYI: They definately don't just give these vouchers away. They needed varification codes off the product, receipt, store name, etc to protect themselves from fraud/stealing)

This is the most effective eye cream I have ever used! The lines around my eyes were getting very noticeable a couple of years ago so I decided to try this. My crows feet have been reduced and the lines under my eyes are only noticeable close up. One person at work even mentioned one day that I look younger these days - can't beat that. It hasn't done much for the darkness under my eyes, but I have had since I was a teen, so I'll just continue to use a good concealer.

As many reviewers said, this thing really makes your eye area softer and smoother. I don't think it does much to help with my dark circle (since I sleep around 5 hrs each day *sigh*) But the feeling is great, much better than the LA MER and Kiehl's and the coffee beans one (100% Pure Cosmetics?) that I tried. I got it when it's on sale for 30% off, which is 30.87 at CVS, and then CVS gave me a $10 giftcard since it's a P&G product, so I consider it as around $20, which is not bad.

This actually works! I found after 2 weeks a noticeable difference in the wrinkles under my eyes that were bothering me so much and making me feel really old. They were the reason I have been searching for an eye cream. I have tried pricey Christian Dior, La Mer...not that this isn't expensive. I paid over $40.00 at Target, but for something that works I don't mind that much. A little bit goes a long way. The pump dispenser is hygienic and convenient for getting just the right amount to apply. I use it am and pm and it works great under makeup, although I find I don't need to use much concealer anymore. No breakouts or adverse reactions so far!
Okay, I had to downgrade it because I stopped seeing results after the first month or two. The product does last quite a while, but I don't think I will repurchase. I don't know if my skin "got used to it" or why it seems to not work so well anymore. I will finish up the bottle, but then I will continue the search for a great eye cream.

I'll start off by saying that I have very pale skin- therefore I'm cursed with under eye circles and they are a huge insecurity. To add onto that, I have narcolepsy and delayed phase sleep disorder. Those two do not do well together, and at 19 I started developing wrinkles and fine lines under my eyes. Of course this means the under eye concealer I use to cover up my dark circles creases in the wrinkles making me look horrible.
-This under eye cream helped my wrinkles, but only a little. I didn't really notice it was helping all that much until I stopped using it when I ran out. After a week of not using, my wrinkles went back to where they had been. My concealer creased into the wrinkles more than before and I realized the difference immediately! So while this doesn't do wonders, it worked enough for me to make things a bit less obvious.-
I don't apply it twice daily as directed. The reason for this is that the primer and concealer I use don't go on right if I use this under them.
I bought another after I ran out but am researching a replacement, as I'm hoping to find something that will work a bit better for me.

I got the small size tube of this to try it out, I think it was .3 oz. I'd seen great reviews in all magazines so despite the overall opinion here I wanted to give it a go when I saw the small option. I have to say I really like how rich the cream is! I've noticed more crows feet over the last 2 years but my overall face condition looks pretty good and people think I'm about 10 years younger. My main priority in products is on the prevention side although I wouldn't mind a little miracle... Hopefully with continued use I'll get that!

I rarely have any reaction to products, but immediately had puffy, burnt patches under my eyes. I waited a few days to try again, but skin peeled again. I called Olay and they've sent me a coupon for a replacement product of any kind (they were great---I wear Olay moisturizers day and night for face and body), but I'm afraid to try anything else for under eyes!

I'm 35 and in the past year or two have really started noticing an increase in crow's feet around my eyes, combined with thinning of my under-eye skin in addition to a bluish cast and creases there as well. (luckily, I don't suffer from dark circles!) After reading lots of good things about Pro X this past fall, I bought the starter kit and have been using this product and the night cream steadily for 5 months. I didn't notice any results from the eye cream right away, but I continued to use it faithfully, since it didn't seem to be hurting anything, and it did seem very moisturizing.
Now, I have to be honest and say that you will not see instant results with this eye treatment. It's really only been in the last month or two that I've seen results. However, those results have been DRAMATIC! Those of you with crow's feet will appreciate it when I say that, at the corners of my eyes, I have gone from about 8-10 crinkles per eye to only 3-4 per eye. Likewise, the creases under my eyes have reduced from 4 to 2 per eye. And the tons of little fine lines that radiate from both sets of wrinkles have also been significantly reduced. This product has also helped to reduce the bluish cast that I'd begun noticing under my eyes and in the inner corners.
In addition, I agree with other posters who've said that this product is too heavy for daily use under makeup. However, I think it speaks volumes of the effectiveness of it that I have gotten the above results with only overnight use.
In short, for we ladies of more advanced years, this product, with faithful use, WILL yield long lasting results. For those of you who want something for preventive care, I would think this stuff will give you a great head start on staving off future damage.

Nice consistency, works well. Expensive for Olay but I would re-buy.

I have to admit that my eye area is in good shape for being age 49. Apart from my congenital dark circles, which can't be helped even when I'm well-rested, I only have a slight bit of crepiness under my eyes in the inner corner and, knock on wood, no crow's feet. I attribute this to my consistent use of Jafra's Optimeyes and other more inexpensive eye treatments since the age of 35, plus I always wear sunglasses when outdoors, unless it's very cloudy.
But, I did begin to notice that my various approaches to eye treatment were not holding up so well until I found Olay's Professional Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex. I am starting to see smoothness, hydration, and suppleness again that I had feared would never return. I think it's pricey, but so far it works, probably as well or better than even more expensive eye treatments. I will update if I change my mind. Try it.
BTW, it will probably have the most effect on women who are past age 35. I always have to chuckle when women below the age of 30 give a lousy review to popular face and eye treatments. There's a reason that you don't see a change in your skin: your skin didn't need intensive moisturizing or firming because it's still youthful. It's like trying to paste youth on top of youth--it just cancels out. Wait till you're past age 35 or if you have prematurely aged your skin in some fashion.

This is a good under eye moisturizer-but that is it. I have used it about a month now and see none of the claims it makes accomplished. $40 is too pricy for this if all it does is mositurize. I saved my receipt and packaging and am returning it to Target today !

I bought this product about a week ago. I noticed that my entire eye area was super dry and that my concealer and shadow weren't going on well; so my primary reason for using this was to moisturize. From what I've seen so far, it works. After applying morning and night, my eyelids and the area under my eyes appear smoother and feel softer. This cream is super emollient and a little goes a very long way. I have some fine lines right under my eyes and I do notice after putting this cream on that they do diminish a bit. But not permanently, I don't think this has the capability to do that, although I've only been using it for a short time. It is really pricey, I paid $60 CAD for it. Great pump dispenser. Solely as an eye cream, I would recommend this product if it is within your budget. I will probably purchase again if i don't find anything less expensive.
