I really like this! surprised to see such bad reviews. Even when I use this during the day, I don't find that it is sticky at all. You just use a tiny dab. Like seriously a tiny dab. Makes makeup around the eyes go on smooth and prevent creases under the eyes. Feels really nice too. It also cleared up some eczema I had under one eye.

I love MB products. They've done wonders for my rosacea and they're dirt cheap! However, I've yet to find a good eye cream from them.
Some context: dry/mature skin with crinkles around my eyes. puffiness. bags, dark skin. Yeah - the works.
This doesn't do anything for the wrinkles. I wouldn't necessarily expect a gel to be moisturizing enough for that. The real disappointment is that it does nothing for my puffiness or dark circles. Another lippie off for being tacky and making it hard to apply my concealer.
All in all, probably my least favorite eye cream ever.

One of MB's most questionable products. A very simple eye cream at best, its very moisturizing, but there are so many others options out there for what it provides. Even a little bit never really absorbs right. I'm using the rest of this jar to moisturize my cuticles !

I LOVE this product. It relieved my dark circles completely, as well as softening my sensitive eye skin. However, with the first application I did experience some stinging of the eye...I'm assuming its because I do have sensitive eye balls. :) Also, the packaging is not my favorite. Its hard to screw the lid onto the container. However, that does not change my opinon of the actual product. I love it!

I got a sample jar of this as an extra in a swap. I found out very quickly that it doesn't take much of this gel to do it's job. It won't sink in if you use the amount you would use of a normal cream. It's extremely concentrated. The amount I use is equal to about the size of the head of a pin and it covers the under-eye area and around the outer corner of my eye. This tiny amount allows the gel to sink into my skin. It's hydrating and smooths out the eye area quite well. My skin is supple and concealer goes well over it. I think if you all tried it with a 'less is more' approach, you might like it. You can always add more, a little bit at a time of course.

so i thought the bad reviews here were people failing to understand the nature of the product. a gel is different from a cream bc gels don't absorb into the skin like creams do hence providing long term benefits. gels sit on top of skin to either soothe and depuff (like cucumbers) or dry onto skin to tighten area around eye (like egg white). with that said, it really doesn't absorb into the skin. it reminded me of aloe vera gel (the kind you get for sunburn), color, texture everything. even if you use a thin layer, it doesn't absorb and it doesn't dry. and no, it didn't give me the soothing depuffing qualities of cucumbers/tea bags either. it really didn't do anything. save your money, theres other eye gels out there like origins no puffery that deliver better

Not Good, MB products are AMAZING but remember guys, A BRAND CAN'T BE GOOD AT EVERYTHING, some brands make AMAZING masks, toners and cleansers but suck at other treatments, this is the case, I must this is one of the few products I HATE from MB =S

I recieved a generous sample of this eye gel from MB and have been using it for a few weeks (it lasts so long!). As others have stated, it does not sink into the skin immediately, which can be a problem with makeup. I use the gel only at night and love how my eye area feels moist (not sticky or greasy) in the morning. Other than adding moisture, I don't see any other benefits in regards to circles or lines. If eye dryness is your only concern, this would be a good product.

even though lots of people dont like it~ i still think it works pretty good for me~ it reduces the fine line around my eyes (not wrinkles...) i also followed the instruction and stored it in the fridge; the results were great~ lighten up the dark circle and depuff~ ^ ^
the size is pretty good~ but i'm not so sure about continue buying it cus i really like to try new stuff~(i also never finished my skin care product...kept buying new ones...)

I hate this eye gel!! It is truly the worst, i dont know where to begin. It is so sticky. I keep expecting this to be absorbed but Alas! It just remains on top like a sticky film. I wake up in the morning and it would still be sticky. It does not smooth lines and wrinkles, as a matter of fact the gel settles in the wrinkle. I hope im making sense. There are other eye treatments much better than this like olay and clinique. I like other products of mario badescu but not this. Complete waste of money.

I'm currently in the process of changing my skin care regime, so I'm currently sampling quite a few different brands. Mario Badescu skincare for the most part has worked out very well for me (their Enzyme Gel Cleanser is something I see staying in my bathroom cabinet). This eye gel was the exception. I was given an ample sample of the stuff, and I have to agree with many of the other reviewers - this does NOT absorb. I've used it at night for about a week, and it takes hours to sink into the skin if it ever does at all. Some mornings I wake up, and the region around my eye is still sticky/tacky feeling.
I tried storing this in the fridge to see if that helped since that's what they recommended - no difference. The only redeeming factor about this whole eye gel was that it did seem to lessen the puffiness of my eyes somewhat. After about a week, the puffiness seemed less pronounced or maybe it was just more sleep. I don't know, but because of that I can't give it one lippy.
On the whole, it's not very hydrating, doesn't absorb well. and leaves the area around the eye sticky for hours.

I usually like Mario Badescu for his affordable and effective products. The ceramide eye gel, while economical, doesnít really do much. I use it when my eye area is a little dry due to all the acne products (my eye area is very sensitive and gets red and raw sometimes) and it helps calm the thin skin, reduce redness. But it isnít something that my favourite Control Cream cannot do.. Iím just trying to finish it now. Such a big tub!

It worked ok. My dark circles are a little lighter which is good and its hydrating. IT wasn't a huge difference but it was ok. It does what it says at least.

This product feels very slippery and slimy, like silicone. It doesn't absorb into the skin and doesn't provide enough moisture. Normally I like Mario Badescu, but I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

I want to love this eye cream, but it is not easy to absorb. Feels greasy and sticky :(

I also got this as a sample, but unlike previous reviewers, I found that this does sink in to my skin well. I only use a teeeny bit, so maybe that's why. Basically, I love this, because, I put it in the fridge, and in the morning, I use a very small ammount. Since it's cold, it shrinks my puffy eyes (I never get enough sleep) and once it sinks in, I find it's a good base for my under-eye concealer. I will totally repurchase. Just remember, ladies, with this, less is definitely more.

I received this in a good size sample. The instructions told me to use in morning and night. Honestly, I don't know how anyone can use this in the morning. It is so thick and sticky, and it does not sink IN your skin at all. I wear it at night, and it takes forever to dry. I end up going to sleep with it still feeling damp and sticky around my eye area. Once, I woke up in the middle of the night, touch my eye area, and it is STILL sticky from the eye gel. I will definitely not buy this in full size. I recommend everyone to contact MB for a sample before buying this. Theyre really good about sending out samples.

I got a sample of this. I have no freakin clue what it is supposed to do. I've noticed 0 difference but I put it on sometimes anyway because I hope I notice something one day It does actually sink into my skin unlike basically everyone else's reviews but maybe it's because I have sort of odd, almost a little roughly textured skin in my under eye area. I need like the tiniest dab of the product which is nice, except I can't figure out what it does. The only reason this product didn't get a 1 is because it doesn't make my skin break out or irritated.

This is an okay eye gel, like a lot of reviewers mentioned, it's very sticky. You can't rub it in very well because it gets all tacky and you feel like you're pulling at your skin (very bad, especially in the eye area!) I noticed that if you put it on before bed, it absorbs better, but there's still a sticky film on your skin in the morning, so I'm not sure how much gets absorbed and how much evaporates. I did notice a difference in brightness (not dark circles, those are stubborn, but an overall "awake" look to the eye area,) and it seemed to help firm but once again I'm not sure if that's because it really firmed anything or just stuck the skin up tighter like some kind of glue (that sounds so gross XP) I wouldn't repurchase, because I'm not sure how effective the ingredients are since I can't really tell whether it soaks in or not. There are much better eye gels out there to spend $18 (or hopefully less) on.

I received a small sample of this green eye gel from Mario Badescu recently. I have to echo some of the previous reviews...this stuff never seems to sink in. For example, I put a very small dab under each eye this morning at 8:30. It is now 10:30 and if I touch that area, it still feels damp. I can feel the product sitting on top of my skin. I haven't put on my makeup yet, but I doubt my concealer is going to sit well under my eyes because of this junk. It doesn't feel slimy or sticky to me...it just hasn't sunk in. It doesn't appear to have depuffed or done anything for the appearance of dark circles either. I think I'd be better off using my refrigerated St. Ives Cucumber Elastin gel. The search for a decent eye gel/cream continues.
