I've been using Kinerase products on and off since 2007, and this has to be my least favorite. I really can't find many good things to say about this eye cream, except it was moisturizing. I only used it in the evenings, and in the morning, my eyes would be moisturized, fine lines not noticeable, but maybe that is because they were so puffy underneath?? Honestly, the two stars are for the fabulous job it did on my lips as a treatment. If it lasted longer and was in a tube, it would be a 5 star lip treatment. After about 2.5 months, the product deteriorated and the texture changed from creamy to pasty. I made the mistake of binning it a day too late, as the final time I used it, I developed itching and a rash.

Background: I have dry, acne-prone, sensitive, rosacean skin that tends to be rough/flaky in winter. I am early 40s so I do struggle with fine lines, especially crow's feet, so I use eye cream every day. Pros: easily found, VERY moisturizing and doesn't cause any issues with acne or redness. Definitely plumps up fine lines around eyes. Cons: high cost (around $60 US) and jar packaging, which is totally unhygienic and contributes to the degradation of key ingredients. Can be a little greasy feeling so you only need to use very little. For me, it works better for night. When I use it during the day, it makes my eyeliner and mascara smudge and smear all over the place. Level of moisture reminds me of Bobbi Brown's "Extra" eye cream, which is loaded with Shea butter, except that this one spreads more easily as it is creamy straight out of the jar. Nice product if you don't mind jar packaging and you have very dry skin. This is not for people with oily skin.

I feel the same as the others do. This was an Allure Beauty Award winner and it has the consistency of marshmallow fluff. It never really absorbed into my skin. It just sat on top. Didn't moisturize or help with the lines around my eyes.

Hideously expensive, and not even as moisturizing as the Clinique All About Eyes, which isn't even one of the most moisturizing eye creams out there. It was recommended by a Sephora salesperson as one of the most moisturizing eye creams. I wasn't expecting much -- just moisture to reduce the appearance of fine lines (I can talk the talk! just appearance! not even asking for real results!) -- and this just delivered diddly-squat. The only thing going for it is that it's pretty good as a base for undereye concealer. It's a thick cream that goes on pretty smoothly. I can't really bring myself to throw this out so have resorted to using it as an allover moisturizer for long haul flights. It works fine as a heavy-ish moisturizer, and again, has a bit of a smoothing effect so makeup goes on well over it. Otherwise, a huge disappointment. I should have read the MUA reviews first -- since I've benefited so much by MUA reviews, I was so compelled by my experience to review it so others won't waste their money on this one.

I used this product religiously for 6 months and saw no results - no firming, no reduction of fine lines, no reduction of under-eye circles, and really nothing at all! I am 25 years old with fair skin and I'm starting to get wrinkles around my eyes because I smile a lot and I have very thin skin around my eyes. I bought this to "firm things up" a bit and hopefully see a reduction of my fine lines. Well, after spending the ridiculous amount of money that this costs, I have to report that I saw no results. I kept using it, hoping there would be some difference and it was all a waste. It does moisturize, but it doesn't sink in. Seriously, buy a $10 Eucerin moisturizer from the drugstore and you'll get all the same benefits you would have gotten from this.
I bought this on Sephora because of all the great reviews. I'm so disappointed that I fell for all the positive reviews on Sephora, because this product was a waste. I seriously question who writes reviews on Sephora. Anyway, don't buy the hype. Save your cash and don't buy this...

This was nothing but a huge disappointment. I purchased this to do a bit more than just moisturise, but all it did was that. I saw no firming effects but it is a decent moisturiser if you are dry around the eyes. The texture is thick, almost balm like with an off-like smell. I would only use this in winter and if you are oily, this would be too much. I also felt that it exacerbated my milia, so if you are concerned about that, I think the under eye rescue would be a better choice since itís not as thick and has a silkier texture. I felt that this was nothing more than a hydrating drugstore eye cream. I cannot recommend this. I donít understand the hype around this brand, I donít think it performs at all and costs a bomb. I did not see any other visible improvements it advertises to produce. I feel that EL Advanced Night Repair for eye is a lot better than this and that this performs on par with a $15 eye cream.
