It moisturizes nicely but I have noticed after some time it discolors which means the Vitamin C has lost its properties. I would like a higher SPF and more helpful anti-aging ingredients. This is basic. Better money spent else where.

it says to dab a small amount of the product to your brow bone on the package. but if you do so, your eyes will start to drop tears and sting awfully.
online helpers on official murad site says to apply the cream on the orbital bone.
I did it but I couldn't get what is the use of it as an eye cream.
no other eye cream did this to me before.
don't even try to use it.

I bought a sample on eBay because I wanted to test the product out to see if it worked before purchasing it. Eye creams can be super expensive!
I have been using the eye cream for about 3 weeks day and night and have noticed some good and bad differences.
1. My dark circles are much lighter
1. It stings my eyes when applied
2. I am developing small same colour as skin bumps under the eye
3. Fine lines have not changed at all
I do recommend people try out a tester if you are interested in this cream, as it will not suit everyone.
Other things I liked about this eye cream was how easily it glided on; you only need to use a small amount ( my tester 4ml is lasting forever); SPF; doesn't leave my eye greasy looking.

This is a particularly terrible eye cream for me, by far the worst I've tried. I look very tired when I wear it, so much so that friends have commented with concern. My eyes look puffy and even *feel* heavy. It's odd. It isn't an allergic reaction, because I feel no irritation or discomfort. It simply feels like the area around my eyes retains more fluid with this eye cream. Worse, my minor dark circles become more pronounced. There are no benefits.

I hate this eye cream. When I used this, it makes my eyes all watery and tired-looking as if I haven't slept for a week. I used bobbi brown creamy eye concealer and when I used it with my HG eye cream from avon, it looks flawless. but when I used this with my eye concealer, it settles onto my fine lines. Not to mention having to wipe my teary eyes. I loved Essential-C line but not this product. For the price, I expected more.

For such an expensive eye cream ($67, .5oz) I would expect a lot more. Thankfully I was given a free sample (.14oz) a few weeks ago, so I didn't have to waste money on such a mediocre product. The only positive things that I can say about this are that it has SPF--albeit fake, chemical sunscreen--and that a regular sized bottle will last you a very long time. I can probably still get another month or so of use out of my sample tube. Other than that, however, this product doesn't do anything for me. It's certainly not moisturizing enough for me and I've seen no improvement in my (very minimal) fine lines. Unfortunately this also does nothing for my hereditary undereye circles, which I was very hopeful about. I've also noticed some redness and stinging if the cream comes even remotely close to my eye. I may continue to use this just because I don't want it to go to waste, but I would never purchase this with my own money. My Burt's Bees Radiance Eye Cream is much better quality for 1/4 of the price.

It did seem to lessen the finest lines, but overall, pricing included, was slightly better than mediocre. I don't like this line, it broke my face out and was quite drying, even the 'moisturizing' products. Since face products are to be used in synergy, and I don't care for the other Essential face products, this one won't be repurchased.

This was very expensive but I had to throw it away after a few times as the stinging and irritation I experienced each time I used it was just too intolerable. I cannot afford the time in the time to wait for my eyes to calm down before I apply my make up. The Clinique whitening range which is a two step process is far superior as there is no stinging or irritation. Even my SPF 25 Revlon Age Defying concealer does not sting. I suspect the Vit C in this is the culprit. Such a waste of money.

Like everyone else has mentioned - great that this contains sunscreen as I have slight sun damage under my eyes in the groove where my cheekbone starts. I've been looking into sunblocks lately and thought this would perfect. It absorbs fairly quickly and I'm able to apply my concealer soon after with no problems (some eye creams make my concealer apply blotchy because they sit on the surface of my skin for a bit). I think the texture is great - it's thin and creamy and It is moisturizing. The reason I won't continue using this is because it really irritates my eyes. I don't put it too close to my lower lash line, but still, I'm left with burning, watering eyes with each use. Also, my undereye area has a slight burning sensation. I do have sensitive eyes, but I have used several different brands of eye creams with no problems.

It's nice that this contains sunscreen, but Murad uses chemical blocks rather than physical ones, meaning that this stuff really stings the eyes and is probably pretty high on the toxicity scale. Plus, it contains parabens - a definite "no" for anything touching my skin.
