I pretty much love every LM item I've used so far but this is definitely not one of them unfortunately. The main thing being that it stings like crazy if any of it seeps into your eye. I literally had to rinse my eyes out as the pain was unbearable. I don't know what they put in this eye cream but I can't imagine any of it being good if it can cause so much pain.

Second update 01/12: I am almost done with this jar and can say that I am still looking for a HG of eye creams. I still the have the same opinion as below, great hydration, comes on nicely, helps with temporary appearance of wrinkles, etc. but for the price it is not amazing. No signs of improvement when I wash my face and the cream is off. I just went and bought a jar of the regular La Mer creme which I plan on using as eye cream until something better comes along. The creme is cheaper and in my opinion more versatile. I recently started using Cellcosmet and I might try their eye cream next. The Ultra Vital has been amazing for the rest of my face so if the eye cream can achieve just a little of that, I am on board!
Update: Opinion still the same. In addition I have noticed that my concealer comes on nicely and doesn't accentuate the lines with these cream under it.
I have used the La Mer creme on and off for years. In the winter, it's the only cream that keeps my face from flaking (but in the summer no matter how little I use, it's too thick hence the off times). My eye area has recently gotten very dry so I bought the eye cream to give it a shot. After only a week, I can say it's working great for me. Yes, I have wrinkles and dark circles and even some puffiness certain days. I did not buy it for any of these reasons though. I bought it for pure hydration and if I got a second benefit, then great. After only one week, I can say that I haven't had the random puffy eyes and the dark circles are a lot better. The hydration has been great as expected. No irritation like others have noted or milia so far. I will come back to update in a month. So far, this has worked for my very dry eyes. Better than Benefiance and Bobby Brown eye balm.

this is very lightweight and feels refreshing. it does hydrate but I didn't notice any improvement for dark circles and I'm not sure if it can prevent fine lines. but it does feel good on the skin. I may repurchase unless if I find something better

The only thing this Eye Concentrate does it to moisturize. This is all. Luckily I am using a sample. I will use it till the last bit because I hate wasting products but after that I will keep trying products for eyes until I find the right one. And this is waaaay too expensive.
UPDATE 22.09.2011. Funny enough , I reviewed this products just few days ago but since yesterday, after 2 months of continous using this eye concentrate, my eyes are itchy and a bit red. I still have something left in my jar so I won't get rid of it right now, I will use it on my face, maybe it works.
I won't repurchase.
UPDATE 9.11.2011. So I used the rest of the cream on my whole face. It was ok for few days. Moisturising, nice healthy look. After few days I got pimples (of course this is not a whole face moisturiser but I didn't wanted to get rid of it so fast!). For my eyes sometimes is ok, sometimes it makes my eyes red (like I cried a lot) , dry and itchy. For sure, I won't repurchase!

It was one of the first eye concentrate that actually did what it supposed to do - help reduce lines and dark eye circles. Because it worked so well with the samples I bought this over night, together with a full set of tonic, moisturizer, scrub, cleanser and etc. Yes it worked, but after a while my skin stopped responding to it. I dont think this is due to the product but my skin does that for every product. But because this is so hideously expensive, Ill choose to skip it if there are cheaper alternatives - I believe they are. If they dont work, Ill repurchase this again.

This is a review to the eye balm intense..
WORST EYE PRODUCT that i have tried - because it fills my eye bags with lots of milia seeds. I have been searching high and low for good products on the internet. LAMER AND STRIVECTIN. BUT both gives me milia seeds (i have been cauties in the application amount) after less than 1 month of usage. Lamer Eye concentrate is worse, i have never had an eye cream that gives me countless milia seeds.
I am 29 but i have seen ppl early 30s commenting here that this is ok.
I have lots of fine lines (due to insomnia last time). I regret of trying these 2 products. So expensive and give me permanent bumps to my eye area. I guess these products are for those in winter country or their skin doesn't secrete much oil and rarely sweat (which will clog your skin hence tend to give you bumps/oil seeds/ milia seeds).
I am so sad that i am so stupid to believe of the brand La Mer. Thought every product of La mer is superb and will work to remove my fine lines and improve my skin. But all the scary and disgusting milia seeds give me scaly skin which makes me so sad. And it burns a pocket in my hole. I am still using the La mer lotion for face, which i think is ok. (still have to be careful to not apply, otherwise it will give flesh bumps or oil seeds due to too nourishing)
So how to remove milia seeds. Whole patch. Laser? OMG! I am not going to trust overpriced product with rave reviews anymore.
And fine lines are still there. Maybe it will have some effect if i use it longer. But a product of that price should not give us milia seeds.
Really sad. Now i don't believe the more expensive the more effective the product is. Thanks to LaMer and Strivectin.

So this was my introduction product to La Mer. When I was 28 I was desperately looking for an eye cream that would help me with my new found wrinkles! I tried EVERYTHING with no results. This didn't do anything for the crazy price. Yeah, it's so cool with the silver tipped applicator. WHOOPY! I used the whole entire jar and it didn't do anything!! $250cdn for a jar of plain old eye cream. To top it off it totally stung my eyes like crazy!! Aren't eye creams supposed to be gentle on eyes, but yet this one hurt to use!! Totally not worth it!

Not my cup of tea:
- Delivers only moderate hydration
- No noticeable smoothing effect on fine lines
- Comes in a jar, which I find not ideal for eye products
- Stings like crazy if it gets into the eye which makes me wonder
- Prohibitively expensive
Verdict: IMO There are much better alternatives out there for a fraction of the price.

Honestly it only hydrates, save your money people.

This is regarding the eye balm intense. I've been a regular user of the eye balm (discontinued) for the past couple of years. I only stopped last year the month of May when I went to Europe and had an allergic reaction. I thought it was the mixture of the product and the different environment that caused my eye area to be irritated, thus I stopped and used another product for my eyes. When the eye cream I've been using ran out last week, I opened a new jar of the eye balm intense (bought only this december)and just on the first day of using it, my eye area swelled up immensely! Not only that, the following days had my eye area go through a number of stages ranging from swollen to extremely rough skin to peeling and now a very red rash. La Mer is known to be one of the top skincare lines and yet this is what I get. The products are extremely expensive compared to others, and I think I deserve to get better results. It's been a week from the time I got the allergy and until now my eye area is far from recovering even if I've already taken allergy medicine. This is truly disappointing and I will never buy this product again. Everyone, beware! For those who will try this product, I suggest you make a patch test first before applying to your face.
