I have tried various Aubrey Organics skin care products through the years and they just don't deliver results. This eye cream is a light moisturizer but smells like old grease. Do not notice any anti-aging benefits. There are a lot better, natural skin care lines available. I prefer Own CLA eye cream to this.

This is a very light eye cream. The good news is that it was never a problem for my very sensitive eyes and skin. The downside is that I did not notice any meaningful benefits for wrinkles, etc, but it did provide light moisture.

It took me a while to get used to the consistency of this product, but I love, love it. It's so light, but really effective. I searched & searched for an under-eye cream & this is the one. It actually helped reduced the tone & texture of my under-eye area (reducing the lilttle subtle white dots, can't remember what they're called...). I also use it between my brows (to really moisturize that area, where the creases may soon turn to wrinkles.
I'm going to try storing in the refrigerator as other reviewers suggest--I do notice that its effectiveness starts to dwindle as it sits in my drawer for a while (since a little goes a long way, it really lasts).

Very nice cream. I keep it in refrigerator to extent shelf life. Very economical. Very light. Like serum consistency. Good quality. Will last forever!

I am impressed. This product has done for me what I thought no product could do; hydrate, firm and lift my eye area. I am still pinching myself to be sure I am not dreaming. I do not apply this by whiping/smoothing it on my eye area, I pat it on and it seems to be working. I will buy again and again as long as it keeps working.

Like the reviewer below (filmoyster), I was attracted by the ingredients: oat protein, rose hip oil, aloe vera, primrose and camellia oils, shea butter, vitamins a, c, and e. Cruelty-free, vegan, and the price is respectable.
Unlike the previous reviewer, though, I liked the pump dispenser and found it easy to use. It is a bit big and clunky, but not a jar.
Lumessence is a pale yellowish-with-hint-of-peach serum-gel; needs to be shaken before use. Applies easily and spreads well, sinks in fast. Little is needed as it's quite concentrated.
So far, so good.
Immediate results: none. No miracles. That is normal.
Left on overnight, results the next morning: the eyelid to browbone area felt fine and moisturised, much the same as with any other eye cream I've used (not counting the ones that irritated eyelids). Outer corners and undereye were a different story. Dry, puffy underneath and in the inner corner, baggy foldy lines there too, and dehydration crinkly lines with redness in outer corner area.
Not good. Problem solved with cool compresses and one of my trusty minimalist regular eye creams.
No idea what the cause and process were; this stuff seems to work for others, and at least I didn't have a full-on allergic reaction. Maybe the lavender water--though not that much in here, there is a slight scent but very very little.
Costs around CAD25.00-35.00, USD20.00-25.00. Available in health-food stores and online. Note that the AO Men's Rejuvenating Eye Cream is identical: some stores have it but not Lumessence.

The low price and organic, natural ingredients were the two things that reeled me in on this product plus the hope that it would help with puffyness and circles. Unfortunately, the pump is terrible - squirts out way too much, the product made my vision cloudy in the mornings, and the results were far from extraordinary. I have better results from putting pure squalene oil around my eyes. Am still in search of a good eye cream!

I had tried a few other eye creams, but never really saw the benefits. With this cream, I do see a difference - my eyes look brighter, less tired, and there are no dark spots/saggy skin, formation of wrinkles. At 29, this is key. I only use it in the evening, but i cover my entire eye - underneath, lid, and the inside corners. No irritation, and while it looks "shiny" at first, if I wait a few minutes, it sinks in and is fine. Its before bed anyway, so who cares. In the AM, my eyes and skin definitely look more refreshed. The effectiveness of this product has me intersted in the complimentary night creme, the Luminessence Rosa Mosquetta Night Creme w/ ALA (thats what I think its called).
Consistency is very thin and watery almost, which I like, it doesnt feel heavy on my eyes, yet it does feel moisturizing. I dont use a full pump for both eyes, I have been using daily for over two months and cant see a dent in the bottle yet. Expires in a year or two I think. Two thumbs up from me.

I sometimes get dry patches on my upper eyelids, but I can't use most eye creams because they cause major irritation and make my eyelids swell up. However, I'm able to use this eye cream every night with no problems. It's very lightweight and keeps my eye area moisturized for the entire night; when I wake up, my eyelids are still soft. I'll definitely repurchase this gem.

Light emulsion like creme in a pump bottle. lots of good ingredients and is completely WEIGHTLESS. Very humectant and moisturizing, leaves skin feeling sooo supple. I usually just use my regular face moisturizer under my eyes but I'll happily steal this from my mom!

I have a big problem with dry skin patches on my upper and lower lids. This product with Burts Bees Radiance Serum seem to keep it at bay (somewhat). I think that even thought it is light, it is pretty intensive and better than most heavy creams I have tried.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I really wanted to like this, and I did for a few weeks or so. The texture is really light, no strong fragrance, and I like the hygenic pump. But after a few weeks I forgot to bring this on a business trip and temporarily switched back to my old standby, Kiss My Face eye cream, and realized that in comparison this one doesn't really seem to do anything and isn't even that moisturizing. Since then I've used it off and on but am struggling to use it often enough to finish out the container.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
Okay product -- a bit "gooey", but does seem to brighten and tighten eye area. May contain an ingredient or two that are not good for the skin, but given the alternatives out there, is probably a better choice.

Beware!! I am a all organic girl and I was thrilled to have found an eye cream that was so. I used it fine at first. I did not like too much that my eye area was all shiny from it...but you can rub it gently and it goes away. The BIG problem is that I started to develop some sensitivity to the product. At first, I was not sure that the pimple (not acne, something else) forming around my eyes were from that because I went through most of the product without that problem. But I stopped using it, then I wanted to finish it, and everytime I used it I had something on my eye area where I applied the product. It looked like I had a beginning of pink eye. I do again this morning and this time I tossed the product because it is getting even bigger. Too bad...

This is one of those cases where I'm thinking.... did I buy the same product that others did? I do really like the thin texture of this. It goes on smoothly without tugging on the skin around the eyes. It also doesn't have any annoying scent or cause irritation. However, I don't find that it absorbs well. The skin around my eyes, which is really dry, still looks shiny hours after using this. With previous eye creams I'd apply morning and before bed, but this one I only wind up using before bed now, lest my eye area look greasy during the day.
I do really like the packaging- the pump keeps bacteria from building up in the cream, which is nice for something intended for the eye area.
I didn't notice any change in my under-eye circles or fine lines. I wish I'd experienced the results others have! As it is, this is just a nicely textured cream.

After I tried to switch to all natural/organic skin care, this is the only eye treatment that reduces my fine lines and not causes milia (those little why dots). It is very moisturizing/hydrating, and I thing that is why it reduces my fine lines. After applied, it feels a little bit sticky (like honey), but it does not bother me at all.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I recieved a sample of the cream which lasted for a good two weeks enough to see some pretty great results, which is rare for me. i had previously just finished another eye cream and was looking for a more natural alternative and found this stashed away. it diminised my dark circles and helped almost rid me of my lines that ive recently developed due to excessive rubbing. my HG of eye creams, will definatly repurchase.
UPDATE: GUTTED! milia city! ill try it again just to make sure.

Based on the reviews here I purchased the Lumessence eye cream. I am very impressed with the results. This is one eyecream that performs as well as the claims made by the manufacturer. It is not really much of a cream - it is thin, even thinner than a standard lotion. Like a previous reviewer mentioned, I can now leave the house without using concealer because my dark circles have greatly diminished since I began using this a few weeks ago. I do not use this on my lids because it really retains moisture and the one time I did use it there I woke up with puffy eyelids. So I use it under my eyes and it has been wonderful in softening the few lines I have and diminishing dark circles, while generally just brightening up my under eye area. Like some reviewers, I have a problem with the pump letting too much product out, usually no matter how hard I try to get just a little bit. For that I took one lippie off because I will have to repurchase sooner for having too much come out. I'm kind of on the fence if I will repurchase. I really love this product but just don't like the fact that too much is dispensed with each pump. I might try another eye cream when I run out but if I do not get results like I do from Lumessence, I will definitely go back to it.

I've only been using this for a couple of days but I really like it. It is light weight and absorbs into the skin very quickly. I only use a very small amount of product, less than a pea-sized dot for each eye. I love the appearance of my eyes after only a few days. The skin looks firmer and brighter. I didn't even think I needed an eye treatment, I just decided to try it on a whim. I am really impressed!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
I used this faithfully, every day for 2 months. I did not have the same miraculous results as others claimed as far as it eliminating the need for concealer. I've had better luck with other eye creams. What I liked best about it is that it did not cause any type of allergic reaction. My eye area is very sensitive and many eye treatments I have tried have caused everything from a rash, dry skin, eczema flare-up and puffy, puffy eyes. I may repurchase, but it would only be during warmer months when my eye area does not need as much moisture. It did not help or hurt puffiness. Overall, this is an okay product, but I was not wowed by it.
