I like this product very much it light weight and fast absorb. This product suppose to apply in the morning but I don't like too rich around my eyes area so I apply in the night too. I apply defining eye lift first for reduce puffiness and dark circle then this product it work better. I will repurchase it.

Firming, reduction of fine lines or puffiness- NO!
I do love the packaging, but I did not notice any difference in my eyes. I gave this product a go for over two months but yet again I'm on the prowl for a good eye cream/serum.

Yet another disappointment with an eye cream. This was supposed to reduce puffiness, lighten dark eye circles and firm the area in general - none of that happened for me. It does seem to prep your eyelids for eyeshadow though. But other than that, here's more money down the drain. Someone should just come up with an official scientific statment that it's impossible to get rid of eyebags/rings already. I do love Clarins and everything else I have from them seems to work so this was quite a disappointment.

I am only 25, so I haven't gotten too deep into the eye cream world as of yet, but decided I should probably start on a basic one to prevent lines and help with the puffiness I get sometimes. I read a lot of reviews and research products pretty intensely before buying and this product was rated pretty well, considering it seems most people are generally not WOWED by eye cream results. I am not thrilled nor dissapointed. It feels nice and cool going on which is refreshing but I don't think it tightens anything and it doesn't seem to help with my fine lines. It is also very sticky. Concealer does glide on nicely after applying the light gel and seems to last longer without settling into lines. I love the pump dispenser bottle for the control of product and the fact I don't have to dip my fingers into a jar. Gross. I have tried samples of eye creams from mary kay and clinique before and preferred those to this and they are a lot less expensive. I will continue my search following this bottle. I probably wouldn't buy it. It's pretty expensive for what you get.

I was glad that I got this at a discounted price, because I really had high expectation after reading the reviews on-line. So... to make a long story short... high expections/low results! What a bummer! (All too common, huh?)
Anyway... I used this for at least a few months, and never EVER saw any improvment at all. Plus, it is so tacky that my eyelid would sometimes stick to the hood when I open my eyes wide.
Unfortunately, yet another product that just isn't for me.

This comes in an air tight pump dispenser, nice. The texture of the serum is light and it glides on smoothly. It's hydrating, has a slight firming and depuffing effect. I won't purchase this product again, because it's mildly irritating to my eye area. I find that this serum leaves the eye area looking slightly shiny. I don't mind paying a high price for a eye treatment cream, but after using this for six months, I have noticed a no improvement with fine lines and wrinkles.

Great packaging--the pump means no waste and it's sanitary. Been using this for three months, as the regular eye cream just wasn't doing it for my 40-ish eye area. Absorbs well, works under concealer without balling up, and doesn't make my liner/mascara dissolve on contact. It also adds a little luminosity around the eye and helps with early morning puffiness. My very fine lines are less noticible. I apply to both eyes using the same finger, and noticed about a month ago there was a side benefit. When I'm done applying, I rub my application finger across the back of my hand--that hand is now noticibly improved in appearance and texture compared to the other one! Another $$$$ from Clarins, but I have at least 5 months' use in one bottle.

This is great. This is better than the extra firming eye cream . it lasts for a long time, the pump system is very hygienic and there is no waste at the end of it.
Best of all, it does work. The serum IS moisturizing - I didn't think it would be but it melts into my skin and firms it up . I have had the same bottle for 5 months and I have half left- I use this in the mornings only though. So even though it is expensive, it does last a long time, making it better value for money than a cheaper less concentrated eye cream that you have to rebuy 3 times in 5 months ,etc. .

This is one product that I always have a spare stashed somewhere. Do not underestimate this gel. It is very good for firming and for keeping fine lines at bay. I guess the best age to start using this stuff is late 20's. I started using this every AM at 31 (with Sisleya every PM). I am now 37 with no visible fine lines nor bags around my eyes. Highly recommended.

ok I just started using this today, I received a free sample of the eye syrum and the moisturizing cream. It went on very smoothly and was very easy to use, no problems at all. I will update this in 7 days.

I like this serum, and only use it in the morning. It seems to plump up my lines a little and makes my concealer go on really smooth. I don't know if I am seeing any long term benefits, but it definitely gives me the confidence I need the mornings to face another day at work. This is in my rotation of eye creams as I am always on the search for a better product.

This is great because before I got this, I would never put on eye cream in the mornings. The cream would only make my eye area an oily mess with eyeliner smeared down my face. What is appealing about this product is the fact that it is moisturizing but not at all greasy. I use my DHC eye cream at nght now, and started using this serum in the mornings. I love the consistency, it feels great going on. If you wear concealer, the concealer will go on much smoother. My dark circles/ lines do seem less apparent (I have only been using this product for 2 weeks - so I am not sure if this is because of the serum or if it is just coincidence, will post back if any changes).

I don't know what "DermaDiva" was thinking, but this cream is amazing! She must be in her REALLY late 20's if she didn't enjoy the exhilarating power of turkey leg eye cream. She must have so many wrinkles that the Mars rover thought she was a canyon.

I received this as a sample. I'm glad I didn't purchase this! It doesn't do a thing. I guess I could say it gets one lippie for not stinging my eyes. That's the only good thing I can say about it.

Hmmm....I bought this seeing I needed to have a specific sum to be able to pay by credit card in installments, and since I needed an eye cream etc. I landed on this one. I like the fact that it comes in a pump also. It is a seathrough gel/cream texture, it does moisturise nicely without leaving any shine at all, and is a great base for concealer. I've been using it for about 3,4 weeks, and basically I have one question, where is the firming?????(I'm 31 with fine lines) It does diminish the look of fine lines when you apply, but only for a few hours. It had 44 euros- which believe me is a bargain in Greece! (but thats another story) So, to sum up, basically, I have seen no difference in my eye area, I'm quite disappointed and think it's a waste of money. I think I could find sth similar in a much cheaper brand if all I wanted was moisture.

I just didn't like this. It remained tacky on my skin and didn't really do much for my eye area. I prefer the Extra-Firming Eye Contour CREAM to use both day and night. I did try a sample of the Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate. If I could afford it, I would use the Super Restorative at night and the Extra-Firming CREAM in the morning. Since I'm in my late 20's, I don't really need the Super Restorative yet. I will be sticking with my Extra-Firming Eye Cream for day/night. I would say buy the cream, not this serum.

Hydrating and comforting and reduces puffiness.

I am 34, and have those deepening smile lines around my eyes. My eyes will look fine if i can keep a stone face all day, but laughless life is not worth living. This serum is the only eye cream I tried that somewhat helps a little bit, the skin around my eyes looks more plump and moisturized in the morning, lines almost gone, although reappear later in the day. None of the other creams did even that for me, so i am happy with it. Got it on ebay, the full price is too much.

I'm 47. This did nothing to improve the dryness and lines around my eyes for any decent length of time and it wasn't as pleasant to use as a cream, being too sticky and not very moisturising. The Clarins extra firming cream is good but this serum has no place in my routine.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
I took off one lippie for price, but otherwise, this product is perfect for me. I've been using for three weeks, daily in the AM (PM I use the cream version). Undereye bags are actually reduced. I've never had any kind of visible result from eye products before, so this is a first for me. My skin feels firmer, even on days when I forget to apply the serum.
Biggest surprise? I have super sensitive skin, and I'm tolerating this product very well. I'm not sure I'll repurchase, because of the price, but if the product lasts as long as some users have said, it might be worth it. I use about 1/2 pump per application and do store the serum in the fridge.
