After doing some reading about the great benefits of caffeine on under-eye areas, I was excited to try Garnier's Anti-Fatigue eye cream.
Per application, I was pleased to note there wasn't a discernible scent or dye. Noted on the box, the product dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested , oil free, allergy tested.
Upon application, dabbing the product on as suggested, I found that it went on easily & seemed to absorb well. However, after applying a highlighting product to cover my darker under-eye areas I found it did not cover smoothly & was very visible with the Garnier product (unlike without the Garnier product).
I used the eye cream for about 3 months, hoping to see lightening in the dark circles & some reduction in the fine lines. There was absolutely no change in the time I used the product (& it was frustrating to apply makeup over it). Per the packaging, it's noted that "in 3 weeks: fine lines are noticeable diminished" and "with continued use: even dark circles appear reduced.
This product does not live up to its claims, in my experience.

This makes my eyelids puffy and creates folds from the puffiness which is extremely uncomfortable, its going in the trash.

Pretty happy with this one. I got it SUPER cheap at Ross (it was, like, 5 bucks!! lol) It's very hydrating and can be layered for more moisture, it doesn't screw up my eye makeup, and my eyes are less puffy and brighter when I use it. My only complaint would be that the moisture is gone by the end of the day, but I should probably just use a richer cream at night. hmmm....overall, not bad:)

This eye cream is light-weight, absorbs easily, and has little to no fragrance. It does seem to help a little with puffiness, but haven't really noticed any noticable reduction in my under-eye circles or anything. I have had this eye cream for awhile. It lasts forever because you only need the tiniest amount. I use it (almost) every morning and night. I would say this would be best for those needing light moisturization and someone who didn't have deep wrinkles, as it is not very intensive. I would repurchase it, only because I have yet to find another eye cream that doesn't cause burning, itching, or dryness in my eyes/ eye area.

I just finished this product. It is not a bad eye cream at all from the drugstore. It's very simple, it moisturizes & that's about it. It does sink into the skin rather quickly, which I like (especailly in the mornings before I put on my makeup). It's nothing spectacular and I would say that I didn't notice any changes to the skin under my eyes after using it. It didn't make me look less tired, it didn't reduce puffiness or get rid of dark circles. I wasn't really expecting it to do that, but I was drawn to it because the packaging says "anti-fatigue". My eyes always have had dark under eye circles (genetics) and the occassional puffiness/bags (due to lack of sleep and stress). So, I'd say purchase it if you are looking for a simple, inexpensive under eye cream, but don't expect miracles. I think I'd repurchase only if it was on sale.

I'd used this product many nights in a row giving it a good try...but never saw any difference. I don't like wearing eye creams during the day cause they tend to slightly bother my eyes, so thats why I thought it might improve the slight darkness under my eyes from looking fatigued (like the product claims) but it never did anything.

I liked the packaging and it did last me a good amount of time. I could not see a great difference, but it was not terrible. I think I am going to try to find a different product to use.

This eye cream STINGS my eyes very very bad...inspite of being very careful during application. I do like the packaging and it has some good ingredients and that's why I gave it 2 lippies.

I'm sort of neutral on this product. I dont have too many eye issues. Dark circles are very minor. I mostly use eye creams for hydration and prevention of aging. That being said, I haven't seen a dramatic difference using this, but then again I didn't have too many issues to begin with. I do love the smoothness of this product and the texture. The only reason I wouldn't repurchase is that I will continue to try different eye creams until I find one that "wows" me.

I have oily eyelids, but dry cheeks/under-eyes, and needed something I could use over my whole eye. I really like this one. It's moisturizing, but absorbs well. I just wish this had an SPF.

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I've been on the search for a good eye cream ever since Neutrogena discontinued Radiance Boost (which I loved), and it turns out this works even better for me. After using it twice a day for a couple months I've noticed less puffiness and my dark undereye circles have lightened quite a bit. I also love that it absorbs quickly, which comes in handy before makeup application. The tube is easy to use and keeps the product clean, as opposed to some jar creams. I took away a lippy though, because there's no SPF, and it's not very moisturizing (not a big deal for the time being, but could become a problem during the winter time).

My eyes were really dry for a period of time because of an allergic reaction to one of my topical meds, so in desperation I asked my mom to lend me one of her eye creams. She gave me this and I decided to try it for the night.
I've been using it for two weeks, and my dark circles are a little lighter. I don't need to wear concealer out anymore. Moisture level is decent, it is not as hydrating as i hope, but it goes on wonderfully under make up and doesnt cake up.
The texture of the eyecream is very light and smooth. Absorbs into skin easily. I am still looking for something with a bit more hydration in it, so meanwhile I will stick with this one :)

Used for the first time last night and woke up with swollen lower lids and red splotches. Now my lower lids itch and are hurt and sensitive. I guess I was allergic? Going to return to Ulta tonight. Packaging was good, price ok, but I don't mess with my eyes!

I use this both morning and night for about 3 weeks now and nothing really happened. My dark circles neither diminish nor did my eyes look any more awake after I applied it.

The only reason I bought this was because it was cheap (under $5 at walgreens). I ended up liking it a lot. I am 21, no fine lines yet, so I can't comment on that. I do get dark circles with a bit of puffiness. I use it very consistently--2x daily after washing my face. It isn't any miracle cream but I have only used one other eye cream (Be Fine brightening) so I don't have much to compare it to. It does the job for me. Absorbs quickly, moisturizes, is non-greasy, is completely fine under all eye makeup, and helps with dark circles. Packaging is great. I would give it a 3.5 if I could. :)

I don't find this helpful for dark circles nor did I find it helpful in it's anti fatigue claim and diminishing lines. The only thing I would agree with is that it does moisturize the eye area. So if youre looking for a minimal use eye cream this is probably ok for you. Just not for me. I need the potent stuff cuz I be working long hours...

I didn't think I would try another Eye cream from Garnier after the ultra lift failed to do anything, even moisturize, but the price wastoo good, at Ulta and I desperately needed something. I have very dry skin around my eyes, and though I'm only 26, I really need something for fine lines. I've spent the last 15 years in Phoenix AZ! This little tube has finally worked for both issue were so many many others have failed. Moisturizes all day, it absorbs quickly and after about two weeks I noticed a measurable improvement in my fine lines. I've accepted that no cream will get rid of them, but at my age I really expect a good cream to at least soften them, and this is the first one to do that.
The tube is easy to use and keep clean. The price is really reasonable.I got it for $9 and the same tube has lasted me over 2 months. I don't suffer from puffiness or dark circles so I'm not really sure about the brightening aspects of it. Will definately buy again.

It provides good hydration around the eye area but as for its "anti-fatigue" effectiveness, the results are so-so. I've been applying this cream every day and night for the past 3 weeks and my under eye darkness has faded slightly. Since I don't need an intense eye cream, this one works just fine.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I did not see any results and no improvement in my dark circles.

I've been using this product consistently for about a month now, so I think that is sufficient time for me to have a definite opinion on it. This product is weird to me. I think my issue is that I suppose I "planned" on liking it before I actually purchased it, if that makes any sense. This is my first eye cream, probably long overdue since I have pretty dry skin around my eyes paired with dark circles, which has always caused me strife. I bought this because my favorite youtuber (makeupbytiffanyd) swears by it, and she generally uses good products.
I wash my face religiously morning and night, and I threw this product in the mix with all the other things I use. I must say it only made matters worse. I noticed this in the first week of use, but I wanted to blame other things and continued to use the eye cream. My eyelids, my right eyelid especially, is SO dry and flaky that when I rub it lightly I shed little flakes. That eye is also so puffy that sometimes it looks like I have a lazy eye, because of all the folds the puffiness creates. It literally looks like dried snake skin. (This sounds ridiculous, I know.) For three or four nights I applied Vaseline on my eyelids, and the problem went away. I blamed the change of weather. I kept using the cream, and it only came back worse. Maybe I'm allergic to one of it's ingredients, but that would strike me as odd as that has never occurred with my skin before. Even in the mornings after letting it sink in, my concealer went on poorly and creased like crazy. It made my 20 year old eyes look so much older :(
I give up. I'm officially cutting this stuff out.
