I was looking for a sunblock for eye area. I saw the reviews here are so good that i think this will be the right one for me. Reviews include no milia seeds, not too oily. etc.
I used then i have to stop. Used and stopped. Because it gives me milia seeds on the upper eyelids and lower even when i tried to apply very little.
I am surprised that none of the reviews here state that.
Is it only me? Most of the ppl said it's dry. I find it oily and sticky, if u try to feel it by patting ur fingers on areas applied. Maybe it's because most ppl wear make-up or powder over it. I bought the lancome uv expert for eyes, even more oily, gives milia seeds. But my colleague using the uv expert has not complaints, maybe she applies makeup on top of it, so it will matte it out. Not sure.
At the moment i just try to look for a big sunglass.

Aside from the fact that it is an spf 30 eye cream it blows. No moisture, makes skin look worse esp. with makeup. Big let down. I prefer shiseidos spf eye cream but haven't tried any others. (oily skin prone to milia -=sad face=-)

I repurchase this product about once a year, and my experience with it has been excellent. I use this light cream on a daily basis for sun protection and a little bit of moisture (if you are expecting something that provides a lot of hydration, however, then this is not the product for you). Having had problems with milia from a variety of eye creams in the past, I can safely report that I've had no issues whatsoever with this product - a little drop is all that needed for each eye, and makeup applies well over it. I use it on the lids, the outer corners, and under the eyes, and simply follow with a bit of shadow primer before applying color (I like Too Faced Shadow Insurance or MAC's Soft Ochre Paint Pot). Just be certain to blend it in well, as it is a white sunscreen. Given that I use it every day and it is oil-free (a big plus for my combination skin), I find the price point very reasonable and will definitely continue to repurchase this product. Oil-free daily eye creams with SPF are practically non-existent at any price, and this is definitely the best in its class.

went to sephora for the first time and this was my first want. and i have to say i love this so much.
slightlu brightens my undereye, no fragrance, i like the tube, doesny irritate :D
although this product doesny moisturize the eye (doesnt say that it will anyways) so i use another moisuriziny eye cream but i leave it for 15mins before it.
the price is $40 for 20ml but i couldnt find any other eye spf so and i only take teeeny tiny bit. do remember to use a creamy or a somewhat heavy eye cream because this can dry your under eye.
the consistency is somewhat runny liquid but dries out pretty fast.
oh and also becareful when applying other eye cream or any makeup products like cream concealer or pressed powder over it cuz it could leave you with white cast ish. so just pat it dont drag it

I really like this. It's true that it is basically just a sunscreen, and that it leaves a slight whitish cast. But with my fair skin, this works really well to just brighten the under eye area. I use this as my daily under-eye cream and it disguises any dark circles a bit while helping to prevent wrinkles. It hasn't given me any problems, which is something given that I break out from almost any sunscreen.

This is a good sunscreen. But that's all it is.It offers nothing in the way of moisturisation. It dosen't contain any ingredients beneficial to skin ie antioxidants.When I used this I had to use a seperate eye cream underneath. Bit pointless really. I'm not an eye cream person. I firmly believe that if you are using a well formulated face cream that you can use it around eyes, especially as a lot of eye creams do not contain sunscreen, so are useless for day use. A good face cream with spf that contains added vitamins and antioxidants would be my choice these days.I wouldn't buy this again, not because it's a bad product, but for the above reasons. Anyone who is going to buy this, it's expensive , but lasts for ages and comes in a bigger than normal tube, 20ml instead of the usual 15, so it works out not too bad.

I apply this after lotion. Once it's dry, I put Revlon Colorstay foundation over it. The result: I look 50 - it settles into the wrinkles under my eyes. There's this weird buildup of white gunk all around my eyes. Just horrible.

HG status item. I have bought this product time after time because I cannot live without it. It's safe for the eyes, absorbs fast and offers protection from the sun. It definitely wards off fine lines and wrinkles. Have used this for 5 years. Great product.

I was pleased to find a mineral sunscreen specifically for eyes. Unfortunately this irritates my eyes. I still use it occasionally when i'm going to be somewhere very sunny, and each time my burning tearing eyes remind me why i do not use it regularly.

I bought this before I found out about sunscreens and UVA rays and which ingredients block what. Unfortunately the only sunscreen this contains is Titanium Dioxide, which only protects against UVB and UVA2 rays and doesn't protect against UVA1 rays also. This has an SPF of 15 and a PPD rating of 4.4-4.9 depending if the titanium dioxide is water or oil phase. I bought it for protection from the aging effects of UVA rays which this clearly does not provide.

I wanted to love this, but it has one flaw that keeps me from using it daily.
PROS: Doesn't irritate my eyes, doesn't migrate, appropriate level of sun protection
CONS: Leaves white-ish cast that makes me look like a zombie
I'm giving it a generous 4 lippies primarily because it doesn't irritate my eyes, which is something of a miracle given my super sensitive eyes. It's also non-greasy, which I really appreciate.
But the white-ish cast is its fatal flaw--it means I can't bring myself to put the stuff on when I want to look good. That means I only actually use it once or twice a week, which defeats the purpose. The effect is subtle, but enough that it makes me look very slightly sickly. Maybe this won't matter so much to people who use undereye concealer, but I don't usually wear any. Definitely a high quality product worth trying, but not worth re-buying in my case.

PROS: Great sun protection (SPF 30). Perfect amount of moisture for my eyes. Lasts forever because you use so little. I haven't found anything else like this in other brands. Very mild, light fragrance. Doesn't bother my sensitive skin (my eyes are very sensitive normally). Comes in a tube and not a jar (no chance of contamination).
CONS: Not the cheapest, but as I said, it lasts forever. This isn't quite enough moisture for me alone (I like a lot of moisture). But I just put this over my favorite eye cream, Devita Revitalizing Eye Lift Creme with Polypeptides.
APPLICATION TIPS: I don't put this right up next to my eye. So I avoid any possible irritation that could result. It also helps in not letting any moisture from this affect my makeup wear.
ALTERNATES: I put Devita Revitalizing Eye Lift Cream or L'oreal Age Perfect eye cream under this. (See my reviews for these, if you like.)

Let me start off by saying I am not an eyecream person. I think most creams that can be used on other parts of your face function just fine under the eyes, though they don't come in those ever seductive nifty little containers. Using a cream around my eyes during the day has mainly one purpose: to protect the area from sun damage. I tried all the regular sunscreens that work on the rest of my face, but in each case I experienced product migration, stinging eyes and overly greasy base for concealer application. Because I cannot use chemical filter sunscreens, my choices are fairly limited. Anyway, this is why I begrudgingly schilled out the $30.00 for 0.7 Oz. of this "eye cream" *feels a little queasy at the the thought*. On to the pros though: the 8.1% Titanium Dioxide provides spf 30 protection, which gives decent, though not perfect broad spectrum protection (as far as physical SS goes, zinc is better for UVA protection). It applied smoothly with no greasy residue or eye irritation. My undereye area did not feel overly oily or greasy at all, which made concealer application so easy as compared to my other slidey, greasy SS. In fact, it is not hydrating, so may want to consider putting a plain moisturiser underneath it first (I do this). Will I buy this again? Not sure yet. For those seeking a similar but cheaper product there's Neutrogena's 3-in-1 concealer ($9.00, spf 20), which is a combo SS, concealer and supposedly reduces puffyness as well. It has 9% titanium dioxide and comes in 4 shades. If I don't feel like killing my wallet again, I may purcahse this instead. Jury's still out, though I'll say yes for now b/c I'm liking the product. One lippie off for the absurdly high price.
Edit: Love this stuff. Never stings my eyes, has a pretty brightening effect. Defo worth the $$ and will for sure repurchase. I've just upped the overall rating to 5 lippies. Atm it has HG status for day eye cream.

I recently (finally) started using a retinol on my eyes at night, so I figured I needed a proper sunscreen. Why is it so difficult to find eye creams with sunscreen? When using this, I usually use another eye cream (currently, either a cheap Boots one or the remains of a deluxe fancy sample).
Mostly, I'm happy that this product hasn't irritated my eyes in the least. And I wear hard contacts, and many things irritate them. I tried using my regular sunscreens around my eyes, but none of them worked, and I don't have time in the morning to have to remove (and clean!) my contacts and reapply sunscreen/make-up, so until I can find an eye cream for the day that has proper UVA/UVB sunscreen, I think I'll be sticking with the Clarins.
And, besides, sunscreen is really the best anti-ager out there, so the $28 for this tube ends up being a reasonable price to pay!

This is great. I bought this because I got my first ever wrinkles below my eyes, and I started freaking out about UV rays etc. This product is a great moisturiser, feels light, doesnt give me milia, doesn't break me out. It is fine to put eye makeup over, but then again I always prime with Mac paintpot (which is great).
Anyway, perfect product. quite expensive though, only downside.

I really love this as an eye sunscreen...it is not really a moisturizer. It can be used all over the eye area and does not sting or burn my eyes or make them water like a lot of other things I have tried. I even got a bit in my eye once and was surprised that it did not irritate it at all. It dries nicely matte, not oily and concealer goes over it nicely. The packaging is a squeeze tube with a small tip that dispenses just the right amount. A little goes a long way so the fact that it is a bit pricey $28 is ok because it takes awhile to use it up...had mine for 6 months and still going with daily use.

Now that I am using retinaldehyde products, I have to be diligent about using sunscreen. I also have just started having botox and I want to ensure that I do everything possible to maintain the results. My doctor tells me that sunscreen is just about the most important anti-aging product you can use, so I purchased this one. It's hard to actually find an eye balm with SPF30 in it, so I don't have any other products to compare it to. I have previously just used facial sunscreen in this area which you are not meant to do, so it was nice to find a product that was dedicated to the eye area. I can't say that it does anything amazing, but it does lubricate the eye area for the purpose of applying my concealer and eye makeup. It also does its job as a sunscreen and I guess that it what it was designed for ultimately. Until I find a better SPF30+ eye cream, I will continue to purchase this one.

I'm gonna buy this as long as I live!
At first glance it may seem very expensive but keep in mind that you get 20 ml in the tube. Normally you get 15 ml....
It absorbs quickly and leaves the eye area smooth which makes concealing a lot easier. spf 30 is perfect, I wouldn't go below that for the eye area. Initially, the cream leaves a whhite cast but it disappears when it's fully absorbed
All in all I really love this. I am young so I don't need additional eye cream whenever I use this. In the evenings I use Kiehl's avocado eye treatment.

So great to find a nice eye cream with such a high spf in it for day. And so far, no milia from this. Will keep buying as long as they don't discontinue.

Wonderful day protection, smells fresh, is a nice base under concealer. In fact, I am generous with the application and rub some into my upper cheekbones, as well, to protect them. I have very sensitive eyes that will tear up if my eye cream is running near the end of the day, or is making my mascara run. No such problem here - it stays fresh all day and does not interfere with my eye makeup. In fact, I stopped having a coon eye problem as well. And I love knowing that I am preventing further wrinkles.
