I am 30 years old. My under eye smile lines were looking extremely pronounced from severe lack of sleep (new baby). I grabbed this from Ulta. I have used this before. It sinks into the skin quickly. It isn't greasy nor does it cause milia. I get those darn white bumps from almost all other eye creams. This provided the moisture I needed to make my under eye appear less crazy!

I absolutely love this eye cream! It is a perfect gel/cream consistency so it moisturizes well without overdoing it for us oily-skinned girls. It has the perfect amount of hydration and finishes well for then putting on concealer. And I love that it's in a pump dispenser so it stays sanitary (& a little bit goes a long way) Worth the $!

I got a deluxe sample of this in my Sephora 500 pt perk once, and I kid you not....the 0.2 oz took about a year to finish. A little goes a long way, so I think that's definitely a pro for this. On the downside, I don't really think it does much aside from moisturizing the skin under your eyes. Doesn't really seem to do much in terms of reducing puffiness or dark circles or wrinkles or anything drastic, even with prolonged usage.
Also, the second ingredient in this is a silicone, so if silicones make you break out or you are sensitive to them, be wary of this. I probably won't be buying this again.

I got this as a Sephora sample. I was using it for a few weeks and I liked the smell, very clean and a little floral. I was noticing my eyes getting puffy at the lids, and very itchy. I thought it was allergies. I forgot to use it for a week, then last night put it on, and this morning my eyes were puffy and itchy again. I definitely know it was this product. Won't be purchasing, too expensive for me anyway (poor college student).

I am on my second bottle of this. I really like using this as my night time eye cream. I alternate between this and kiehls avocado eye treatment which seems to be more moisturizing but does tug on my eyes and is thicker. I tried origins with zero effect.
I dont use one during the day at all because I dont like the area around my eyes to be shiny during the day at all and if I apply cream my eye makeup slides off of my face.
I find that it goes on really smoothly and doesnt tug my skin at all. I smooth it on with my ring fingers and it feels nice and moisturizes. I am 26 so it is more preventative care for me but my mother also likes this a lot and says it works well for her.

Although I am rather young, I thought this lightweight eye treatment would help me get rid of the slight wrinkles I have at the corners of my eye. I was also hoping that it would hydrate the eye lid area and makes it look "plump". I got a small amount on my finger and spread it along the skin on my eyelid, my under eye, and "the orbital bone". There was a bit of a cooling sensation, and a bit of stinging (but this is common with a few eye products I have used before). It was easy to work it since it is a light, milky, gel-formula. A few hours later, I went shopping and my eyelids felt itchy but I thought nothing of it. When I arrive home, I see tiny little bumps all along my eye lid and orbital bone area where I had applied this product. It felt warm, itchy and uncomfortable. I don't have particularly sensitive skin and I have used an array of eye products like gels and creams before, so this was a surprise to me. (For instance, I sometimes use a retinol eye cream). This also caused me to get little bumps on parts of my cheek as well. I have gotten these bumps before from using the lemon facial scrub (homemade) and therefore know that my skin gets these when it is irritated or allergic. I'm assuming these bumps on the eyes were of the same origin.
Side note: If you get these little bumps from any cosmetic product and you believe they are a mild allergic reaction, please stop using that product immediately, take some Benadryl or other antihistamine and be gentle to the skin (no exfoliation etc, I use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser if I get these bumps). For me, these allergic reaction symptoms last about a week or week and a half. For some others, it can last up to 3 weeks or for 1 day. Try and conduct a skin test on the inner elbow if you are unsure if this product is okay for you to use or not. Leave the product on that area for a day and see if any symptoms occur.
So overall, my experience with this product has been upsetting to say the least because these bumps are not aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. But I generally really like Boscia products (have been using their Clear Complexion cleanser for years now) and I hope this review won't turn other people away from this decent brand. Just please make sure to do a patch test because I've been doing further research on this product and have found out that quite a number of other reviewers have reported the same outcome.

This is a the best hydrating eye cream I've every used. I got a sample foil packet of this when I bought something at Sephora and it lasted me for two weeks. You only need a tiny bit and it absorbs quickly, truly moisturizes, and has a lovely herbal smell. It's listed as $38 on the Sephora site and sounded doable so I went in intending to buy it. Turns out in Canada it's $46 + 12% tax. I'm holding back on buying since it's so darn expensive and I'm now looking for more cost effective product. Maybe if I`m in the states and at a Sephora I`ll get consider buying it. A great product but taking off a lippie since I`m not sure if the price is justified.

A great lightweight eye cream. It feels silky, without any greasy texture, and absorbs into the skin well. I never had problems with shine or makeup smearing when I used this on my undereye area, so itís perfectly safe to put on under makeup in the mornings. The formula is so silky smooth and light that you can even use this on your upper eye lid with no irritation.
Additionally, a little goes a long way. You donít need much at all for each application. One bottle lasted me a little less than one year. The only down side is that Boscia, possibly elevated the price, because I remember paying a lower amount for this bottle than the current price.
Overall, while I may not be able to comment on the eye creamís benefits, itís good because it carries no detriments and is practical for daily morning application.

I checked "yes" that I would but this again because I really like the consistency, it has a silicone-ish type of feeling, it glides on easily without tugging on the delicate under eye skin, it's hydrating, and just a little bit goes a long way. I do not have any puffiness but I do have mild under eye circles....I have not notice any difference from using this but again I like the consistency and it's hydrating. It's $38 for 0.5 fl oz.

I love the feel of this product. My eyes do feel moisturized after use and seem less puffy

I went to sephora a few months ago and got about 7 different eye cream samples, tried to be very unbiased and gave each sample a try for at least a week, 2x per day.
Among them were Koress, Ole Henriksen, and some others I can't recall.
The only one that made my under eye area feel nice and smooth, with which I saw a significant difference was the Boscia amino eye treatment. It goes on silky smooth! Perhaps my fine lines were due to dryness, but they have significantly improved! You really only need a dot of product for both eyes. I'm not sure it does much for under eye darkness, but do yourself a favor and get a sample of this product and try it! If anything you'll at least appreciate how smoothly it goes on:)

I was pretty underwhelmed by it. I don't think it did much of anything for my face.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I love this product. It's the only thing that stops me getting eczema in the winter under my eyes (tiny little red bumps). The reason I have given it 4 points instead of 5, is I find that it doesn't do much for my dark circles or lines etc.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Sensitive, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I use this product to shrink the puffy bags under my eyes. I wish it helped the dark circles and the fine lines too. Most eye creams make me itch or cause little bumps and this doesn't. Put it in the fridge and keep it cold. Works even better! You will have to use a different creams for the other two issues I mentioned above. I've never found an eye cream that literally does it all.

I really liked this eye cream a lot. It was smoothing and non-irritating and did exactly what it was supposed to do. After a while though I started to get milia seeds under my eye area so I discontinued use.

I'm really picky about eye creams and got a large sized sample of this with a gift set last year from Sephora as 500-point giveaway. It came with this eye cream, the Oil Free Daily Hydration - a nice, lightweight, basic moisturizer, the Cleansing Oil - awful stuff that dried my skin out (go figure), and some Blotting Linens (which I have no use for - gave them to my teenaged niece.) These are the only Boscia products I've used and though I'd heard of the line, probably wouldn't have tried it out if I hadn't gotten the free kit.
I've been really impressed with this and recently bought a full-sized one, though I still have some of the sample leftover that I've been using nightly for almost a year. The skin around my eyes is very sensitive and also quite dry so I prefer emollient eye creams without any actives in them.
When I initially began using it I thought I detected a reaction that made my eyes water but that's either gone away or it was caused by something else.
I like the gel-cream consistency and the way it goes on. It's not overly emollient as to make my lids oily and it works well under makeup. It's the right balance of moisture -- neither too heavy nor too light.
Very nice product and it's rare for me to like an eye cream so much that I repurchase it. I've tried a million of them and in the past have loved Erno Lazlo and La Mer and not been fond of Skinceuticals and Cellex-C, just to give you an idea of where I'm coming from.

My friend gave me her Sephora sample of this because she said it irritated her eyes. I have been going through the Obagi Nu Derm treatments and my skin goes through these horrible flaky, peeling, red stages that are normal until one reaches the ideal skin that they had n their youth.
I like this eye treatment because none of my other eye products are helping at all with my extremely wrinkly, dry, crepy, under eye area that has resulted from the rejuvenating process I've been suffering through.
It goes on easily and penetrates quickly instead of just sitting on top of my leathery scaly eye area like my thick Shesido eye cream now does. I will update this review when my skin heals to see if I still like it. Maybe it will upgrade to 5 lippies then because nothing will completely help my eyes look good in their current state. Don't know yet if I will repurchase.

LOVE this product! You only need a little speck, but it does the trick, and absorbs into even sweaty skin. Not greasy, and so smooth that you do not pull on the delicate eye area to put it on. I think this will be a real winner on my price-per-use list.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Brown
A little goes a long way with this, it is very smooth and wet. I like it.

I received this as a sample as part of my beauty insider points from sephora but I'm planning on repurchasing.
First off I one specific issue which is one of my eyelids droops due to ptosis and I have noticed that the skin there is dry and a wrinkle is forming. The rest of my eye skin just needs more preventative measures and I have average circles under my eyes. I have not really noticed a difference either way with my under eye circles.
For my ptosis eye I have been using retinol products alternating with regular moisturizer, and I noticed a minor change over many months. However with this product I have noticed a change in how the side of my eye area feels and that the area is plumping up in 2 weeks. It really moisturizers. At first it feel greasy, but in the morning I wake up with soft moisturized eyes.
I know that sometimes my ptosis will be there more than others, but this product has really helped. I would suggest asking for a trial to see if it work for your concerns because while it feels nice and moisturizes my other eye, I am not noticing any huge change.
