way overpriced, imo. it's a light lotion; i prefer something creamier for my eyes. my skin still felt tight after use. not much scent, which is good, but the lotion is an ugly tan color, which doesn't make it more attractive.

I didn't find this product to be all that impressive. It was good at moisturizing, but nothing in terms of firming or reducing dark circles, so it was little more than an overpriced moisturizer. I liked the packaging and the scent was minimal. I bought this at TJ Maxx so my underwhelming results may be due to age. However, I doubt it and will try something else instead.

My eyelids and the skin around my eyes tends to be really but also sensitive so it's hard to find an eye cream that's moisturizing and that doesn't have irritating ingredients in it.
This eye cream doesn't irritate my skin but it also doesn't moisturize it. I need an eye cream that's richer and more emollient. After I've put this on and it has absorbed I can't even tell that I've got an eye cream on - which some people might like, but I don't.
The price is decent and the packaging is nice, but I won't be repurchasing.

I'm only on my 4th day but wanted to say that I'm pretty satisfied. The normal price of this about $45 is way to expensive but I got it for $23 which I feel is very worthwhile. I'm really dry and sensitive. I'm 30 so I don't have tons of aging but it has started. I have a few lines and I have a baby so I'm often tired leading to "saggy" eyes. I have circles, not horrible but just started noticing they are getting worse. I like this cream alot, so far. It's not too rich, but it's very moisturizing. And I feel like it really lasts on my skin. It absorbs super quick and just really feels nice, not greasy at all. I haven't noticed an appearance change in my lines or dark circles but my eyes definitely feel much better and less puffy and I've only used 4 days so far. I guess I'm primarily hoping this will prevent more aging and if it helps with the tiredness (circles and puffiness) it's a bonus. I would buy again, if I got a sale.

This is the one I carry around. It moisturizes but it doesn't seem to sink in without being very greasy. Maybe I should just use it for my cuticles instead?
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Olive, Warm Hair: Other, Fine Eyes: Brown
I have been using this eye cream in the AM and PM, for a week. I like how it goes right into my skin, absorbs very well, doesnt feel heavy, and I can wear it easily uring the day and it feels rich enough for night. I don't have dark under eye circles, but maybe a little growing from tiredness. Anyway, I see a small improvement, but nothing to do cartwheels over so far. I like it for providing a good moisturizing barrier, and I do like that I can put it on top of my eyelid and not just underneath. I will continue to use and update if it is miraculous. I am using it in conjuction with the Daily Moisturizer and in the PM the Night Repair moisturizer.

Well, I'm glad this worked for the previous reviewer. For me, it's hell and damnation. I put this on (the only different thing in my routine) and now I'm stuck with a HUGE allergic reaction. The skin under my eyes is red, dry, flaky, and burning. And of course, it looks wrinkled and creppy. Whenever I get one of these reactions it take bloody AGES to get my skin back to normal again. AND the added bonus is that I have to go w/o eye makeup till the allergy clears. I HATE going about w/o eye makeup. I don't do natural (no woman my age should and I don't care how politically incorrect this may sound; it's the truth). Just in time for the holidays. Lovely. Just bloody marvelous.
UPDATE: Ok, I must admit that maybe this cream was not the one which gave me the above-mentioned allergy flare. Now that I remember, at the time I also used Tarte's Dark Circle Defense Natural Under Eye Corrector. I'm telling you. Every time I try the "organic" muck, I only live to regret it. Thank God it was only a sample. However, just to be on the right side, I threw both prods away. The only natural brand I can trust is DHC. In fact, it was the olive oil that helped me get rid of the allergy. My eye is ok now. But I'm giving all the new natural, organic rubbish a wide berth from now on. It's back to chemicals for me.

So far, this is the best MOISTURIZING eye cream I have found for day. As you see from my extensive list below, I have tried many brands including the most expensive and this cream is sublime (not even considering the reasonable $45 for .5 oz price). I love this eye cream b/c it moisturizes very well (but is not greasy) and the moisture LASTS all day, leaves the eye area very soft, "bright", gently firms yet subtly fills in the lines. The eye cream works beautifully with my concealer & eye make-up (no balling up, no grease, etc.). I do not notice dramatic under eye lightening (but subtle lightening, yes) however I frankly do not believe any product really helps dark under eye circles.
I was introduced to this eye cream as I had miraculous results with Cosmedicine's Private Nurse Moisturizing Cream. I recently overdid my usage of MD Forte's Skin Rejuvenation Eye Cream (GREAT product but I just used it everyday for a week as I saw no initial harm or redness but you are supposed to work up to using it every other day). I ended up with sore eyes that had a vivid red 1/2 moon in my undereye area (ouch). I went to Sephora and they recommended this line as it has the patented ingredient: Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer: Holds 4,000 to 5,000 times its own weight in water to intensely hydrate and plump skin. This purified, highly potent, topical complex is a proprietary version of a key ingredient in many prescription wrinkle fillers. In comparison, Hyaluronic Acid: Retains up to 1,000 times its weight in water, helping to hydrate and plump skin. I have used hyaluronic acid products in the past and I did not notice much difference.
I applied the Private Nurse cream (non-greasy, matte, soothing) every 30 minutes to my undereye area and within 12 hours, those ugly, sore red 1/2 moon areas under my eyes were GONE. After my eye healed, I went back to Sephora and they recommended this "Eye Specialist" for everyday. I am VERY happy and satisfied with this eye cream.
-Dimethicone: Over-the-counter barrier ingredient bolsters skin's natural defenses. Creates a "zone of inhibition" that prevents the entry of harmful external irritants and potential environmental skin-agers and prevents the exit of vital moisture.
Other Key Ingredients:
-Crosslinked Sodium Hyaluronate: First topical version of the most widely acclaimed prescription wrinkle fillers. Adds suppleness and volume to skin. Fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers, holding in moisture and maintaining resilience.
-Yeast Extract: Comprised of a complex mixture of proteins, sugars, and amino acids, it acts as an excellent humectant and helps improve the rate of cell turnover in skin.

For night I still ADORE Awake Renovation Eye (richer, heavier than the Cosmedicine eye cream so too heavy for day but applying at night and waking up to soft, smooth eyes is a dream) and I alternate the AWAKE Renovation Eye with MD Forte Skin Rejuvenation Eye Cream .
Past eye creams I've tried and discarded: Darphin, DDF Advanced Eye Firming Concentrate (lovely but did not moisturize 1/2 as much as Cosmedicine), Caudalie, Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate (didn't moisturize enough & eyes were a little uncomfortable, feeling tight), La Mer, La Prarie (Anti-Aging SPF 15 - ok but weak compared to Awake), Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme Eye (worked but then stopped being effective), Perricone Alpha Lipoic Eye (effective at first but not later), Prevage (caused milia), ReVive Eye Renewal, Shiseido Benefiance (too rich & caused milia) , Relastin's Eye Silk (effective at first but not now), Lancome (Renergie Micro-Lift, Primordiale Intense, Absolue - all felt nice but ineffective), E, Lauder (Advanced Night Repair), etc.
I am Korean, 43 yrs old but most think I'm 28-32. Although my under eye area is very dry, I have combination skin (very dry in winter, slightly oily in summer however prone to plugged pores and occasional breakouts). I use: Natura Bisse, Cosmedicine, Jurlique, MD Forte & DHC.
