Is it possible that an eye cream could make my eyes drier than before? Yes, with this product. Disappointed that this didn't work out - I thought hyaluronic acid was supposed to be a rock star product for aging skin. The cream made the inner part of my eyelids flaky and wrinkled because of dryness. It seems like it gave me more lines under my eyes. Still recovering from this after 4 days. Sorry, MB, I love you but this eye cream sucks.

I give this product a 1 on price because it was a sample, but I would rather put ANYTHING on under my eyes besides this. This gave me a chemical burn that took a week with neosporin to clear! Couldn't cover it up with makeup or anything! My eyes were RED and PUFFY and then turned to RED, PUFFY, AND SCALY! Horrible!

I am honestly shocked at all the negative reviews of this product! My HG eye cream is/was Chanel Rectifiance. I believe the first time I bought it, it was around $50. Even at that price, I was nursing it along, making it last as long as possible. But last I checked it was $85?! At 29 years old, that's more money than I can justify spending on wrinkles that don't even exist.

This eye cream is totally different than my HG Chanel, but I honestly like it just as much. I feel that it's a more "appropriate" product for someone my age. It's lightweight, sinks in quickly, moisturizes well without feeling greasy. It doesn't irritate my insanely sensitive skin and eyes.

I use a pea-sized amount for each eye and apply it to my entire lid/brow and next to, beneath, and between my eyes. Whatever is left over, I apply to my forehead. I've been doing this for about 6 months now and I've noticed that the skin on my forehead is looking awesome lately.

Literally my only complaint is that I don't like sticking my fingers in the pot (I am a germophobe). I would love if this came in a squeeze tube. That's pretty much it.

This product left the skin under my eyes looking crepier than before I used it. It took a week of using something else (DHC Extra Nighttime Moisture) to undo the effects. Worse than useless.

Just hit my 20's and so I wanted to start using an eye cream that didn't have all the added anti-aging/wrinkle ingredients. I was recommended this at Ulta and so I bought the container of it.

After two weeks of using it I find my eyes are always ichy and irritated on the applied area. I've also developed these red bumps that are really ichy around my eyes. Definitely will not repurchase. I'm sure this is lovely otherwise, but I definitely recommend getting a sample first if you're thinking of buying.

Despite the bad reviews I consider this stuff pretty miraculous. At 29 I just started noticing "crinkles" around my eyes. My reaction was to run to the cosmetic surgeon. He suggested I inject small amount of collagen to fill the hollows and smooth the lines. A week before my appointment I bought this stuff and loved it. It wasn't too greasy, didn't interfere with make-up application and I was seeing a tremendous improvement. I went in for my treatment and the doc REFUSED to inject me because my eyes had improved THAT much. Even my boyfriend sees a big difference. It may be extreme but I found it life-changing!! The base ingredient Hyaluronic Acid is actually what Juvederm (synthetic colagen) is made of, so when I put it anywhere I have had collagen (lips, smile lines) it plumps them up!!! I will purchase again and again..

I never had a problem with dry undereyes but I got a sample of this and thought "why not try to prevent wrinkles?" How wrong I was. After two weeks of continuous use morning and night, one morning, I suddenly noticed I had developed 2 deepset wrinkles under one eye and 3 under the other! I've never had a problem with wrinkles before (I'm not old enough yet) and this was a horrible experience. I've waited a few months and stopped using the cream and the wrinkles are still there. Wish I never laid eyes on the product.

Wow, love this product! I just got back from a trip to tahoe, nevada, and the skin around my eyes got sooo dry and flaky-gross! I got this product and the first night i used it my eyes were so much better. The flakiness was pretty much gone and my eyes were less puffy too. The skin feels supple. This is a great product for all skin types including sensitive. The aloe soothes and the hyaluronic acid locks in that moisture.

I wasn't too impressed with this eye cream. As a pro it didn't irritate my skin and it was lite moisturizer, though not long lasting. It just wasn't for me. I didn't see any difference after using this product for a week (morning and then before bed). I prefer my usual eye cream instead.

I agree with the previous reviewer that my eyes seemed to get drier when I used this product. I got a sample of it and a sample of the olive eye cream, hoping to use this during the day and the other at night. I love the olive eye cream, but this was drying and it made my eyes sting. I would not repurchase.
