I received a generous sample size of this with a purchase, which was more than enough for me to decide never to actually purchase this product. It didn't do anything at all. I guess it sort of felt nice to apply it, because it's a slightly cooling gel. It felt nice, but really, nothing happened after daily use for about a month. The packaging claimed it would reduce puffiness and dark circles. Granted, I wouldn't say I suffer from very puffy eyes, but when they were puffy, I noticed no difference. And as for reducing darkness under the eyes, it definitely didn't do that either. I'd have gotten better results from lightly pressing a cooled compress on my eyes for 30 seconds than from using this eye gel. And the price tag on this product that does nothing? It's not cheap, I'll say that. There are plenty of drugstore price point products that would at least do something, and I'd rather spend my money there.

I don't have dark circles like many people struggle with, but I do battle with extremely puffy eyes. When I wake up every morning they're puffy. Just moments after I pat this into my under eye area they deflate drastically. It's seriously amazing; I don't know how I lived without it. I don't think that this is designed for people who want to prevent wrinkles or get rid of dark circles, but puffy-eyed people, this is for you!

First of all; THIS IS NOT A PRODUCT FOR HEREDITARY DARK CIRCLES! It doesn't claim to be, so don't be disappointed if your genetic dark circles don't lighten.
I got this product for free through work a little while ago, and I love it! It's so cooling and soothing, so perfect for that morning eye-puffiness. It significantly reduced the appearance of my dark circles and bags, i'm only 19, but with being a university student, being on the computer a fair amount, and not getting the sleep I should, I was lookin TIRED.
I love this product, and would definitely buy it for myself!

I have genetic dark circles under my eyes and have been looking for a product to help these look lighter and less noticeable. This product does not do what it says it does. It does not help with reducing dark circles. I have since discovered there are a multitude of causes for dark circles. Perhaps this gel may help for circles and puffiness caused by tiredness, but if you like me and have genetic dark circles then don't waste your money.
I applied it 3 times a day, and liberally.
It was very expensive - $75 NZ
Didn't reduce puffiness
Didn't help with my dark circles

I cannot say enough about this product! I know lots of you didn't feel it was very effective, but I'm 47 and have used it DAILY since I was 16! Not for wrinkles or eye contour, but specifically for under eye puffiness. It is the ONLY eye gel I ever used (and I've tried em all) that (1) does not irritate my eyes, and (2) is noticeably effective at minimizing puffiness in the AM!

I use this product every time I wake up with puffy eyes due to lack of sleep, too much reading or surfing on the net, or allergies. It works like a charm in reducing and soothing my puffy eyes. However, it does not live up to its claim of reducing dark circles under the eyes. It does not compare with Auriga Cernor XO, which unfortunately, I ran out of and I can only get from UK.
For reduction of eye puffiness, I think there are similar or even better products than this one at around the same or lower price. I will be searching and will not re-buy this product once it runs out.

I really love this product and I believe that negative reviews are not deserved. Clarins specifically designed it for hot summer months, thus you can not expect extreme moisture from it. I got so tired and dissatisfied of my heavy greasy eye creams during these hot summer months and was so happy to find this wonderful product. It is a cooling gel like eye cream which soothes your eyes, cools them down during these summer heat, reduces the puffiness a lot (an we drink so much water in summer). It is recommendable to use it in the morning, since the cooling and reduced puffiness effects last all day long, it is lovely, small convenient packaging, lovely smell, and all the effects I was looking for my eyes in summer (cooling my eyes, soothes it, reduces puffiness and dark circles, very lightweight, absorbs instantly, smells divine and heals my irritated itchy eyes). My Clinique's "All About Eyes" cream is left aside for colder autumn months and I am really enjoying this product during these hot summer months. I highly recommend it to girls, who look for lightweight, cooling eye gel for summer, it works perfectly with my eye make-up (while other eye creams were leaving me with raccoon eyes. If you are tired of heavy greasy eye creams, buy this one and enjoy it's amazing benefits ^^

I work in a department store cosmetics department, and was looking for a new eye cream. All the ones I had previously tried were too heavy for my eyes during the day (I am currently alternating between Lancome's Genifique and Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair eye at night with good results). Everything I had tried for a day time eye cream just made my mascara give me raccoon eyes (not at all attractive). So when one of my coworkers mentioned that Clarins had a good one that worked well for oily skin, I decided to give it a try. At $35, it's really not too expensive, especially for a department store eye cream. However, this actually burned my skin, leaving my eye area with serious irritation that I had to fix with Neosporin (ew). I used it exactly as recommended, and my skin really isn't sensitive. I have no idea why this worked so poorly on my skin, but I returned it today.

It helps to reduce dark cycles and bags under eyes; it is not 100% efficient, but it works good; I would buy it again

I used this product every morning for one year, so I feel that 20 mL is adequate for me. Even though the price is high compared to other eye creams, the fact that the product could last me an entire year makes it seem more 'worth it'. However, this gel did nothing for me. I have very dark under eye circles and eye bags, and even after using this product for an entire year, I see no difference in before and after.
