I don't ever buy creams as they are the one skin care product that is truly a waste of money.I received this as a gift. There is nothing about eye creams that make them particularly unique for the eye area other than the texture. The ingredients used in this formula couldn't be more banal and also the price is quite steep, your really only paying for the brand and the packaging, the same goes for the Extra Eye repair cream.

Jojoba and Avocado Oil, both great plant oils mixed with some anti irritants and also fragrance free. This is a an O.K formulation but it is nothing great. I think the reason why it is so popular and remains a best seller is simply because of the Secret to the Universe three step system. Eye cream under the eye, corrector/concealer then set with powder. If your are using this during the day time your not getting any SPF whatsoever! You would either have to apply SPF under or over this eye cream which really would be missing the point wouldn't it?

It's the perfect size for travelling, it doesn't irritate me at all , is gentle, fragrance free but way too expensive. There are other eye creams by other Estee Lauder owned brands that are cheaper and contain a much higher amount of skin care ingredient in the formula, in particular Repair wear Laser focus eye cream. Much nicer formula.

So while not bad, it is just ho hum, really unnecessary, travel wells but just too extortionate in price. Jar packaging is now widely known to hinder the effectiveness of certain ingredients, particularly antioxidant and antioxidant rich plant oils.

I've been using this eye cream for several weeks now, from a sample jar I received when I purchased several Bobbi Brown products from their website. Although I'm 41, I don't have glaringly obvious wrinkles around my eyes yet, but I'm also trying to delay their appearance for as long as possible!

This cream is a nice texture, although I thought it felt too hard at first. It softens up easily with the warmth of my ring finger as I pat it around my under eye areas. The cream hydrates well enough for daytime use under makeup, but I do still use my E.L.F. Hydrating Under Eye Primer overtop of this eye cream before concealer application. I don't have dark circles, just a little puffiness. The cream doesn't really seem to reduce puffiness much, so I guess it's better for hydration instead.

I have really sensitive eyes and skin and have not experienced any sensitivity from it, but I'm really sorry for the reviewers who have! Ouch!

As far as bedtime use, I find that I need a bit more moisturizing than this cream provides alone. I've been first using the eye cream, and then I follow it with either a layer of 100% Argan oil, or a dab of Aquaphor Ointment. I don't think I would purchase the full-size version once my sample is depleted. I've heard that some ladies like using the Bobbi Brown Soothing Balm for an eye cream better than this, so I'm actually leaning towards purchasing that next. I'll definitely post a review of it, if I do!

So I really like this eye cream!!! I have super sensitive skin and this eye cream doesn't cause any break outs or milia!! That's a HUGE deal for me! =D it moisturizes great and helps with puffiness and dark circles. I like that it's fragrance free and doesn't have shimmer/sparkles in it either. I didn't realIy see a lot of improvement in my fine lines, but it definitely helps with dryness and my eyes look brighter overall. I would recommend to anyone with sensitive/breakout prone skin!! =)

I didn't expect much from this product, which I received for the 500 point Sephora reward around Christmas. I love Bobbi Brown makeup, but had never really used their skincare and didn't have high expectations. However...I love this eye cream, to the point I would actually be willing to pay $65 (I believe it's something like that).

The texture of this cream is perfect...not too "hard" or too runny. It absorbs quickly, is moisturizing and seems to take my eye bags down a bit, too (bonus). I'd compare it to tub margarine in its consistency (not that oily, but sort of that "weight.")

A 0.1 ounce jar lasted me nearly 4 months (I only apply eye cream at night). So I am guessing a full size would last a year or more.

As with all Bobbi Brown products, the packaging is solid and classy.

I almost never put anything on my upper lids (except for makeup of course) as they're extremely oily and use this cream for my under eye area only and I haven't experienced any allergic response. It's really hydrating and gives a smooth surface for applying concealer and prevents the concealer from settling into lines.

I should have read the reviews before I tried this product. I too have sensitive eyelids, which is funny since I never had skin issues as a young adult. This product has a smell that is not very pleasant to me. It is also sticky and does not absorb into the skin, just sits on the surface. After a few minutes, my eyelids started to burn. I washed the product off my eyes, but I woke up with swollen puffy red eyelids. Stay away from this stuff if you have any kind of sensitive skins.

I have eyelid eczema and used to use normal face moisturiser on my eyelids, which was better than nothing but didn't help my eczema at all. But ever since I started using this eye cream, I haven't had a flare up or had to use steroid creams for more than two months, which is amazing since the longest I'd been without a flare up on my eyelids before was about six days. That said, this is the second eye cream I've tried (the first was Burt's Bees and it made my eyelids itch so much so I had to throw it away) so maybe using any other eye cream would have the same effect. This is a basic eye cream that hydrates but doesn't do anything for dark circles. It works well in the humid tropical climate of Malaysia and feels really smooth, but I found that it wasn't hydrating enough when I spent winter in Taiwan.

First, it's important to say that I have a VERY sensitive skin and eyes.

Bought this with BB concealer and Corrector, and was told that you could use the cream at nighttime too.

So I applied it before I went to bed, and woke up in the middle of the night with sore, puffed eyes and my under eyes skin was horribly greasy. I emerged to the toilet and washed everything off, and was relieved almost immediately.

I was afraid to try it again and returned the product.

So if you have sensitive eyes like me - don't use that!

I will point out that the BB concealer and corrector without the cream had no bad effect on my eyes. But they do works better with hydrating cream, so I bought Avene soothing eye cream instead. it's pricy but doesn't irritate my eyes!

Best hydrating eye cream I have ever used! Got a sample size of this with my Sephora points.
Works great underneath eye concealers and foundations.

I will definitely purchase a full size jar of this once my sample runs out.

I use this strictly as my eye primer before using my concealer . Works great for this purpose.
