What caught my eye about this product was the price - $13.99 for 30ml. Most eye products come in 15ml and cost double the price, so I thought I'd try it! I had been having a reaction to something else I was using on my face - it made my under eye area red, sore and extremely dry. The other eye cream I have by ROC was making it worse and sting... This stuff soothed it right away and also took away the wrinkles from the dryness. As a bonus it completely took away any darkness I had under my eyes and helped with puffiness! I haven't had any trouble with flakiness or peeling and I can use it day and night, under makeup or not. Maybe it's best for dry/sensitive skin? I keep it in the fridge as well :)

Eh. Used this for several weeks and did not see a difference in lines or puffiness around my eyes. Wouldn't buy again.

When this brand originally came out with the "Yes to Carrots" moniker I found it clever but a bit off-putting because I am actually allergic to carrots. When I found "Yes to Cucumbers" Soothing Eye Gel I gave it a try although it seemed a bit over-priced, $14.99 even at Walmart where items tend to run a bit cheaper.
This product has a lot of natural ingredients that sound healthy for the skin. The pump is nice and dispenses the gel reliably. I do find that the gel does not play as nice under makeup or other skin-care products as my more typical aloe vera gel from GNC. A small tube of pure aloe vera gel from GNC is $1.99, a heck of a lot cheaper. And honestly, I find the GNC product more soothing. There is something in this formula that has a tendency to sting around the eyes, despite its name. If there is any pre-existing irritation or sensitivity it will burn. In looking at the ingredients I suspect the only way they've gotten away from the paraben preservatives is to replace them with alcohol (because they've got to preserve all those natural ingredients somehow!). I suspect the alcohol-based preservative is the culprit.
This gel can be used at night on unbroken or non-irritated skin but it doesn't play nice under makeup or oil-based lotions. It tends to ball up and scale when layered with other skin-care products. At first I thought that all gels behave this way but the GNC product doesn't. I can add anything above or below their brand aloe vera gel. So it's something else in this product that makes it suitable only for non-makeup use. It dries with a bit of a tightening/shiny look. Although I am drawn to products offering more natural ingredients, I probably won't repurchase this product again for the price given the above-mentioned drawbacks. I just can't see any obvious benefits to this formula over plain old aloe vera gel.

Meh. When I look for an undereye cream/gel I look for something that can be applied both at night and in the morning underneath my makeup or even going out bare-faced.
Now don't get me wrong, I love the slight cooling sensation this product gives me and love that this brand is cruelty free.. I can feel a little tightening under my eyes when this goes on and it does feel as though the skin around my eyes is being moisturized.
I don't appreciate the clear film that it leaves on my skin (that reflects in light). When I go out during the day with this product on, it is completely visible and incredibly embarrassing. Beneath makeup, the product starts to peel.
So..don't get me wrong. The amount of product for the price is great. This would be a great night time eye gel, but in the daytime? NO. Personally, I wouldn't buy again. I'd probably just stick to something like Olay's under eye cream.

Love it. Personally, I think $14 dollars for a WHOLE OUNCE of eye gel is a great price. Especially when the ingredients are "99% natural". Only problem I have with this product is that it peeled off when i applied my eyeshadow primer... Other than that! Its perfect.

Personally I think this eye gel is a great product and this is my go-to eye gel/cream. The reason why I chose gel in the first place is to avoid getting fat granule or oil granule right underneath or on the eyelid, those are painful to remove and easy to get with an eye cream. Yes or no soothing eye gel not only soothes but it also decreases the puffiness or my dark circles, I always apply a thin layer of it all over my eye area and then proceed to put on my night or day cream on top of it. This eye gel gave me zero oil granules and great comfort, and I love the fact it's made out of mostly natural products.

I bought this around Christmas because I saw it was on sale in a gift set (Yes to Carrots lip balm, Yes to Cucumbers make up removing wipes, Yes to Cucumbers eye gel) for PLN 39 (around $13). I've been running out of my Clinique All About Eyes cream so I thought maybe this could replace it and I would try something new, which I love.
Sadly, I pretty much hate this product. It peels horribly under makeup - I only tried using it once for daytime and I'll never do it again. It's kind of fine at night, but seems to be making the skin around my eyes really tight and I'm not sure if it's such a good thing. Besides, I haven't noticed that it would be doing anything for me really.
The packaging is pretty cool, I can dispense as much product as I need. Since I got it on sale at a pretty low price I don't really regret buying it, but I would never get it at full price, or buy it again for that matter.

I use this product pretty much only at night because it peels under makeup and makes your foundation crease. When I do put it on at night, I find that it has a nice cooling but not stinging effect. I'm not sure what it's exactly supposed to do for my eyes other than "soothe" them so I probably won't be repurchasing.

Bought this on a whim when I needed a new eye cream. As it was a decent price compared to how much product you get I decided to go for it. I didn't have much high hopes really, but I wanted it to be refreshing and somewhat moisturizing. It is both things really. It's not amazing but it's okay... I have the worst dark circles, so far no product have ever been able to take those away, and this eye cream is no different. However it slightly reduces my puffiness at least.
But it peels. I use Vichy's Normaderm day cream so I'm used to peeling facial products (that makes them difficult to use), but so far I haven't come up with a way to reduce the peeling while also using make up as I have with the Normaderm day cream. So far I just let it peel off and then put make up on, so it's no big thing, but it'd be nice if the manufacturer found a way to make it stop peeling. *shrugs*

I got this because a sales associate at WalgreensWalgreens recommended it. It was Terrible. I'm glad it worked for her, but this and the yes to cucumbers night cream made my eyes swell and expel mucus. It was like i had pink eye, but i didn't! The irritation went away immediately after i returned it and switched back to Loreal.

I love that its all natural. I have noticed the peeling that others have mentioned, but if you moisturize after using it it doesnt peel.

Pros; packaging is cute, and feels so good when its cold.
Cons; the price!, peels, feels like a gel peel off mask, and looks horrible under make up.
honestly i don't even know if this product is working for my bags or dark circles. i use it every night just to use it and i have not noticed much of a change. for an eye gel, this is not the one for me. (wish it was less then 10$ but its ok because i had a coupon)

No matter how little of this I put under my eyes, it never fails to leave a layer that peels off once fully dried. There is no way I can wear this during the day. It does a fair job of moisturizing when I put it on at night, but I rarely use it. I've actually resorted to Vaseline until I purchase a new eye cream.
Besides that, it slightly burns when I apply it. No reaction other than that, but the fact that the cooling effect is actually a burning effect is, well, freaking weird and unpleasant.
Will not be purchasing again. May go back to the Burt's Bees.

I'm not a big user of eye creams but I recently had a bad allergic reaction that caused major eye swelling. Once the reaction was under control, I needed a remedy for the dark circles and puffiness that lingered. This was immediately refreshing and soothing to my stressed under eye area and eye lids. I used this before bed for a few days before I could also see the effect. By the end of the week, I was looking like my old self again: Dark circles mostly gone and no puffiness. My eyes are super sensitive and this stuff didn't cause any tearing or stinging. Smells and feels light. Efficient clean packaging, good price, effective. I'll keep using it. Feels amazing if you keep it in the fridge.

I don't understand all the negative reviews on this product! For puffy eyes, it is absolutely the best of all I have tried, including expensive high end brands.
Use at night to reduce morning puffiness, and in the morning when you first wake up. Before my morning routine, I rinse the eye gel off and then put on my eye cream. This would eliminate the problem that most users have with texture problems under the eye cream.
I have used this eye gel as a daily fix for several years and highly recommend giving it a try for chronic puffy eye syndrome!

ok, for depuffing this is super , I put it at night and wake up with a much reduced puffiness in the morning than usual however, in terms of darkness or moisturizing this done nothing. The bad thing about this is that it balls up and causes makeup to be rubbed off etc. I gave it 4 for the excellent depuffing properties , packeging and nice scent.

Just a fair product in my books. It did help to moisturize and take away some puffiness, but it works about the same as a $5.00 eye cream by Nutrogena. I really didn't find it had much of a cooling effect, and it did not keep the skin around my eyes smooth at all, in fact I felt that the skin around my eyes felt rubbery. I tried for a week using varying amounts, but still the same results. A tad bit expensive for the quality. The pump is nice, but of anyone who reads my reviews knows, I much prefer a tub I can dip my hand in, to get the most out of the product. I'm glad I tried this, but I will not buy it again. I am still on the search for my go to eye cream!

I bought this product, hoping it will take away my dark, puffy eyes. I'm 14.
It doesn't feel too cool on your eyes when you apply it though. and if you apply too much, it will leave thin white layers that WILL show on your eyes. it looks like my eyes are over-dried.
But, i think that this gel helped moisturize my eyelids a bit; I'm not sure. But after using this for a week, I HATE it. It actually made my puffy eyes a lot darker and visible. even when i'm not using this gel.
DON'T recommend it.

This has made my dark circles *almost* disappear. They used to be horrible, no matter how much sleep I got (I guess being super pale just made them super visible). It vanquishes morning puffiness within minutes. At night, I apply it all over the eye area. In the morning, I just apply it on my undereye area, otherwise I notice that my eyeshadow doesn't go on properly. If you're having issues with it "peeling" away, you're slathering too much on. You just need a tiny amount--put it on your pinkie finger and apply with the pinkie (it's the weakest finger and will thus apply less product and tug at delicate eye skin less than other fingers would). It sometimes stings for a few seconds after putting it on, but I've had no other reaction from it. I'm assuming the stinging is from whatever ingredient it is that reduces puffiness/shrinks down the skin. That stinging is the only thing that keeps it from getting a 5, but the amazing dark circle/puffiness qualities are what will keep me with it until I find something that can do the same thing without stinging.

this stuff looks thick and peel-y around my eyes, kind of like skin peeling after a sunburn. I can't tell if it helped the puffiness or not.
