I was expecting to see some pretty dramatic results (within the first week or two) with a $170 eye cream but did not- when I did with say the Jan Marini Transformation Eye which is at least 1/2 the price. Although this is a nice eye cream, wonderful cream-lotion consistency that allows it to wear fine under makeup, sinks in great, and has not irritated my skin so I can also use it on my eyelids, I have not seen any dramatic improvements in dark circles which was the main reason for my purchase, nor any further reduction in wrinkles. For these results and the price I will not be repurchasing.

Like the other M Lab products I reviewed, this eye cream is "nice" but I didn't see any results to justify the very high price $150 for 1/2 oz. The eye cream has a nice, luxurious consistency, a pleasant minimal scent and it goes on smoothly. For the price, this eye cream should come in a sanitary pump. This product felt nice, no complaints of product flaking or balling but again, I just did not witness any real benefits from using this either. I will stick with my: Olay ProX on the upper lids for day, Perricone undereye for day, MD Forte Eye on undereye for night, topped w/ the Awake Renovation Eye.

It is extremely expensive and for the money you should expect a miracle. Well, no miracle, people. However, it is a very good quality cream. It is not greasy but very moisturizing. It is packed with all "goodies" you need for your skin. It did not irritate my skin at all! I am suprised it did for some people. Also, it does improve appearance of fine lines. It does not erase them, nothing will but Botox:-), but makes the skin looks plumper. I have been using it only for a month and hope that long term use will produce better results. I will repurchase only if I will find deals on it. The first time I purchased it with 50% introductory discount at spalook.com. So with the discount price is very comparable to other high end eye creams. Definitely worth to try.

Like the SPF day cream, this stung. Sad. I put on a tiny bit, smaller than a pea, under and around both eyes and got stinging in a few minutes.

I've been using M Lab's anti-aging eye cream for just under a month now and I love it. At first I thought it was good but no better than most cheaper alternatives (this stuff is very, very pricey for such a small jar, but a little goes a long way), but I've had a change of heart in the last couple of weeks.
I don't have issues with crow's feet or wrinkles (and I'm hoping to avoid them for as long as possible by taking good care of the delicate skin around my eyes), but I wanted my eyelids to be a little more taut and to soften and soothe my sensitive skin. I have eye allergies and tend to rub my eyes a lot, which irritates the skin and was leading to some looseness and some very fine lines and since I had such good luck with other M Lab products (I love the anti-aging treatment serum and the anti-aging toner), I took the plunge and gave the eye cream a shot, cringing at the price ($170 for half an ounce).
Since my skin and eyes are sensitive, I was worried that this eye cream would be too harsh for me (especially since it has retinyl palmitate as an active ingredient and it was my first experience with retinols of any type). Luckily that hasn't been the case at all. I've had no redness, irritation or flaking, only a mild tingling sensation around my eyes when I apply it.
Now that I've been using it for a month, the delicate skin around my eyes is firmer (my eyelids look much better now), more even-toned, less irritated and the teeny tiny lines I had under my eyes are much softer. I've had decent results with other eye creams, but I'm impressed enough with M Lab's to keep buying it, even for the current high price.
PROS: (1) a little goes a long way; (2) a high level of active ingredients; (3) doesn't irritate my sensitive skin/eyes; (4) has firmed my eyelids, evened out my skintone and reduced the tiny lines I had forming under my eyes; (5) very nice, high quality heavy black glass packaging (to keep out the light).
CONS: (1) EXTREMELY expensive; (2) does tingle around my eyes, so it may cause discomfort or pain for someone with more sensitive skin or a lower pain tolerance.
