I got this in a huge sample. Good for me to test out this review over more than a month. This eye cream is moisturizing. Better than a ton of products on the shelf but does nothing to my fine lines. I have tried a ton of eye cream and this is a better one. If you need a moisturizing eye cream u can consider this. If u have fine lines concerns, you need eye cream and serum (2 products)

It's overpriced but the tiny jar lasts way longer than you think. Icelandic Relief never, ever stings or burns my very sensitive eyes. I've been using it for at least 5 years and once in a while I try something different and regret it.
The consistency is very light without being too liquid-y or being hard to apply near your eyes. It has just enough body that you can tap it into your skin without having to rub like crazy. I use it under makeup and it's always far easier to apply foundation near my eyes where I've used Icelandic Relief than anywhere else. In the winter, I admit to using it around my nose where I get really bad flaking. I've even used it over makeup in a pinch to correct foundation flaking with great results.
It's expensive, but the packaging is stylish and the jar has a pleasant weight to it that makes me feel like I'm doing something serious and special for my skin every morning.

This product goes on smooth and silky and apparently contains a lot of good-for-you natural ingredients and none of the bad stuff, like parabens, mineral oil, pthalates, etc. I don't see much difference in the look around my eyes after a week and a half of use, but maybe its more of a long term benefit. I would purchase again, since it does seem gentle and less toxic than some products out there.

worst eye cream ever, it irritated my skin and burned my undereye area, sephora promoted the product, a complete failure.. will not purchase again!

I got a sample of this from Sephora, and have been using this only for few days. But so far I think it moisturizes well and does not leave any dry areas in the morning.
Will update later.

While I do love this product and how it smooth out my eye area, its spongy formula makes it hard to get out of the jar. I use a tiny scooper to get out the correct amount everyday. I think there are similar products out there at a lower price range, I'll probably go back to Clinique All About Eyes after I use this up.

Got this on QVC for like $9.99 or something ridiculous like that. I actually really like this. It doesn't bother my eyes at all (most products burn or worse). Doesn't even bother the occasional dry patches I get. When I use this reguarly like I'm supposed to, I usually don't have any issues. I've noticed my eyes are significantly less puffy than before using it. It also has a slight cooling effect which I like.

I tried this product thanks to a very well informed Sephora sales associate. She has never steered me wrong and I'm absolutely in love with this eye cream.
Originally I was looking for a wrinkle solution. Within days I saw improvement. Within a month I had the wrinkle appearance of what I had 10 years ago. I have to admit I apply generously and often, more than the packaging suggests. I'm not sure if that makes a difference, though, but I thought I'd mention it.
Later on I noticed that my dark under-eye circles had dramatically and significantly reduced. I'm so happy with that. It's a benefit I never even hoped for. I had been let down by so many circle creams in the past I had given up even trying anymore so this was a wonderful surprise.
I'll never stop using this eye cream as long as I live. I hope it works for you, too.

I like the feeling of this eye cream. It is lightweight but hydrating, feels cool going on and sits well under makeup. It has helped some with dark circles but not as well as others. Also not a huge fan of the jar packaging but I use a spatula.

I have been using this eye cream for several years. It is a great moisturizer for the eye area: soaks in quickly and is not greasy. however I have noticed zero change in my dark undereye circles. I don't know that a cream CAN even help hereditary bad racoon eyes but it's time for me to move on and try something else. (of note on the price, one jar lasts me nearly a year).

This eye cream sucks. I've used it for a couple of months now and it did nothing for my dark circles or under-eye dryness. In fact, I'm pretty sure it just dried it out even further and is the cause of these newly formed wrinkles. I don't understand why this product has good reviews; these people are probably deluding themselves into justifying the ridiculous price tag of this useless product.

At the recommendation of a girl at Sephora, I bought this eye cream. I have light puffiness and circles, but I sure notice it! So I've been using this for months now and I only see a slight reduction of symptoms. I use it every time after I get out of the shower. The smell is real light, it's very smooth/gelish going on, a little goes a super long way and it's refreshing. But still, I don't see a difference, especially for the price. My boyfriend on the other hand, like it and says it helps him. Hmmm, personally I wouldn't buy it again.

I like this, but I don't love it. For the price it's a very middle-of-the-road eye cream. Nice, smooth, silky, not greasy. Did a nice job of moisturizing the area around my eyes, but did nothing else.

I got this as a sample from Sephora, much to my surprise for being relatively inexpensive compared to other lines this works well. I am in my mid 30's and had severe creepiness under my eyes and some darkness. Within a two weeks voila it was gone. How happy am I starting to see the creepiness vanish. I am sure there are better products out there but for this price point I am extremely happy. I will be looking for a night cream with retinol for some preventative measures.

I was pretty surprised that this had such a 50/50 split of people who liked this and those who didn't. I absolutely love this stuff! It worked wonders on my dark circles and a small broken capillary under my left eye, and it seemed to keep my puffiness at bay. I noticed a difference about 2 weeks after starting to use it. But I have to say, that it may depend on exactly what is causing your dark circles. I know my skin well enough to know that my particular problem is caused by broken blood vessels and water retention. I don't think that this would work as well for someone who has hyperpigmentation. But for someone who has similar dark circles to me, it works great. It's hard to find a good eye cream with Vitamin K that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. While this isn't cheap, it's managable, and it does a great job. I like that it's all natural. I'm not a huge fan of hydroquinone or deraxyl. I prefer something more gentle and soothing for my sensitive skin. This does the trick beautifully. There are really only two complaints that I have with this. I don't like that it comes in a jar. It's a thin enough consistency that it could go into a pump bottle, and I hope they consider making those changes. The other is that it's recommended that it be used in 3 months after opening. I find this a bit difficult to do since I don't use to much. I tend to use it up in about 4 months, but I do notice that I don't have has significant of results after that 3 month marker. But I'm not exactly rolling in the dough, so it does well enough. Sometimes I will use a bit of Clinique's All About Eyes if I have a bit of extra puffiness, or the Boscia Treatment, but the Skyn Iceland still does the best job. All in all I believe that if used to treat the right kind of under eye problems, it's a fantastic product that I will definitely be repurchasing. It may take a bit of extra work to figure out if it's right for you, but it's totally worth it for me.

I'm not sure if I love this product yet but I definitely like it. It has a refreshing tingling sensation when applied, and oddly enough it almost feels "warm" after application. I haven't seen any dramatic difference in under eye circles, etc., however it has a nice fluffy texture and hasn't given my skin any kind of reaction, which is good since my eye area generally doesn't take well to eye creams.

feels tingly when applied, so you think it is working
but does not work, puffiness and dark circles are not reduced

This is the best eye cream out there. just dab a tiny bit on at night and in the morning your bags/dark circles are completely erased! its like magic! VERY expensive (14g=$45) but worth it
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I'm honestly appalled by the high ratings for this product. It does absolutely nothing for my dark under eye circles or under eye bags. Can somebody tell me if I should be using this 2x a day, instead of 1x?

I've already purchased this twice (a jar a year). And since I rarely repurchase anything, that's a very good sign of what I thought of it. I've tried some pretty pricey eye creams/gels... such as the shisedo future contour eye cream and Fresh Lotus eye gel. Skyn Icelandic is the only one that does what it claims to do. Moisturizes and helps dimish dark circles and puffiness. I love it and recommend it to everyone I know.
