Felt like I was putting Vick's Vapor Rub under my eyes, ick! I didn't see any "light diffusers" in the product nor on the surface of my skin. My concealer and foundation didn't go on smoothly over this product, either. Don't waste your money!

I really enjoy this product. I obtained it as a part of a Sephora favorites collection and have been using it since. It has a nice consistency that goes on smooth over my eye area. A little goes a long way!

Okay, I didn't use this properly, but I still find it is thick and not my cup of tea. I don't need a "filler", I just need a good eye moisturizer, and I have several that I prefer over this. Good thing it only came as a small tube in a sample pack. I gave this to a friend who would benefit from it better than I would.

I have THE driest undereye area in the world. It's always a hassle to put on any concealer because it will just turn into a patchy, flaky mess. Unfortunately I also have dark eye circles as well. Just my luck. I've resorted to slathering Nivea cream under my eyes because it's the only thing that's working for me right now. I got this on a whim at Sephora because someone recommended it to me. The first day I used it, I realized that it was very thick. Almost balmy. Wth? It didn't spread very easily and I was tugging on my skin a bit. Light diffusers? Um..yeah...don't see it. Didn't brighten at all imo. It did moisturize a bit...but when I put on concealer it did the same thing! Arrrghhh! Oh..I like my products to have a nice scent (no scent is fine too) but this smells horrendous. What is up with Cosmedicine coming up with some nasty smelling products?! I'm pretty much done with this line. Everything I've bought just left my wallet crying and me completely disheartened.

This eye treatment has an herbally-menthol smell, and I am not keen on putting menthol near my eyes! It's light-diffusing properties are no different than any other similar product--no better, no worse. The problem with this product is even if you warm it up between your fingers there is not enough 'slip' to apply it without stretching out your eye area. It is thick and sticky, and does not absorb worth a darn. Did not pill under concealer, but it felt like I was wearing a mud mask :(
Overall a very disappointing product, especially since I like several of Cosmedicine's other items. If you are looking for a product with properties this claims to posess, try Clarins Extra-firming Eye Serum!

For all of you out there who say that it doesn't spread well etc... I work at an Ulta and just had training on it. The trainer had told us that you have to rub it around your fingers and warm it up to "melt" it so it can be spreadable. The day I received gratis, I tried it and warmed it up and I had no problem. It fills in the "fine lines" under my eyes as would a primer. Can't say that it reflects light like it says but under concealer, it works wonders. Hope it helps

Euwww, this is the only eye product that I hate the most!!!! Thank god, it's a sample from sephora that I got 6 months ago and I'm still not finishing it. I just hate it, it's so ready to be toss out. I hate anything silicony dimethicone, even face primer. But, this is nonsense. It emphasizes my fine lines under the eyes. Even my eye concealer hates it. It doesn't blend at all. Hate hate hate!!!

Ah, what a relief - i thought that it awas only me but I see I am in good company.
I also got this in a sample sachet as I was somehow "thrilled" to try it as it said "Light diffusers".
You discover that is a thick balm (like a primer think Clarins Lisse Instant) that is completely packed w/ silicones.
Yes, it's a filler and creates a kind a smooth base for your makeup but does nothing more than that. Does not "diffuse" light, does not diminish puffiness... nothing. I endured applying this for 3 days in row. Nothing.
It smells nasty and I trust this will affect your skin health in the long run. No buy.

Cosmedicine skin products never cease to amaze me because they are so horrible, yet they somehow remain on the market. I received a sample of this with my latest order with Sephora.com. I ran out of my staple eye cream and decided to use this in a pinch. I can't believe Cosmedicine has the nerve to call this an eye cream. The back clearly states that the active ingredient is dimethicone. However, being the optimist that I am, I hoped I would like it since it's marketed as a "eye cream with light diffusers" and as a "skin protectant".
So I ripped open the little packet and slowly squeeze some product out. It's a gummy, clear gel substance that is very thick and sticky. It seriously looks like a foundation primer, like Tarte Clean Slate. I was not amused but since I had gone this far (and my eyelids were dry and in need of an eye cream) I decided to apply it to my lids. I would DEFINITELY not recommend this to people who have sensitive skin or dimenthicone allergies (for obvious reasons). I felt like I was clogging the pores on my eye lids and seriously regret putting it on. Thankfully I did not wake up to any pimples in the eye area, but I am not going to use this product again. I would not recommend this for the A.M. under eye makeup because it's so tacky and causes eye makeup to migrate.

I dislkied this stuff so much that I have to put a warning out there for others. It does not sink in, and thus messed up my makeup. It also caused clogged pores under my eyes, which I've never had before. I didn't notice a difference in dark circles, but even if I did the disadvantages would disuade me from ever using it again.

To start, I didn't actually buy this product. The artist at Sephora gave me some samples of it because she noticed some dryness around my eyes.
This worked great for about a week. My under eye area looked much brighter. However, a few days ago, my upper eye are puffed up. Like another reviewer, I had to take allergy medicine and apply cold compresses to get my eye area back to normal.

Boo. I can't believe everyone is so mean to this (or it to them); I LIKED that it was thick and sank in so well. I guess it's the dimethicone, perhaps? No marked difference in undereye circles, but it had no averse effects and it was soothing.

This feels like an ointment (think neosporin) on top of your eyes. I was looking forward to using this but it actually seemed to give me a clogged under eye area pore, which I have never had before.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I had high hopes for this product. It didn't work for me at all. It didn't fill in the small wrinkles under my eyes, and it felt very greasy. It never really absorbed into my skin, which made my foundation look horrible under my eyes.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I'm not sure what ingredient it was in this product that caused an allergic reaction, but it was enough for me to not use it again. I first felt incredible itching under my eyes, then burning, which turned into dry, flaky skin under my eyes. I've been walking around for a couple of days now looking like I got punched in both eyes. I really wanted to like this product but it is not for me. It seems like others have had a much better experience. I would test the cream before spreading it all over the under eye area.

I agree with some of the other reviews that this eye cream is more like a primer for under the eyes.
It works great as a under-eye primer, however I still need a separate eye moisturizer because I feel like I have to drag it along my eye area if I haven't already moisturized. Even though that sounds like a pain in the butt, it is worth it because my concealer goes on over it so nicely and looks so much better. The makeup doesn't show lines as much and the area looks brighter and smoother. It definitely makes a difference that way.
It makes a good daytime eye cream/ and under-eye makeup primer, but at night you may want to opt for something with more treatment in it because I'm pretty sure that this is mostly silicone with brighteners.
Also, due to its texture, you can use any excess left on your fingers after applying to tame your eyebrows if you need it, it holds mine in place rather than using clear eyebrow gel.
I used it up until recently because the slight smell has started to bother my eyes. Even though it's fragrance-free, it has something in it that started to bother my eyes and make them a little red looking and watery. It's probably the rosemary oil even though it's the last ingredient. I can still use it a little, but I have to be more careful to not get too close to my eyes (I use everything in excess, so before I was applying it generously to the top and bottom of my eyes, and bringing it up to the lash line. Now I just use my Cover FX SkinPrep skin treatment and primer, which acts as my serum, eye cream, moisturizer, and primer... It's awesome, completely fragrance-free, and can be used as all of those products in one, saving you time and your skin looks good with that alone. Then if I have time, I will pat a little of the cosmedicine over my under-eyes just to smooth out even more... I reviewed it if you want to check my reviews).

I like this product because it makes my undereye circle less noticeable. I don't use concealer so I don't know how well this product would work under one. I'm still looking for the eye cream that I would say was "the one" but this one works for now.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Very Oily, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
This is the only product I've tried that noticeably reduces my under-and above-eye puffiness. A few minutes after I apply it, the puffiness starts to recede, although it never disappears 100%. My dark circles are also less noticeable. If I get it in or too close to my eyes, it burns, but as long as I'm careful I have no trouble with it. It has a very strong smell, but it dissipates quickly. I don't know whether it has any long-term benefits; so far the benefits seem to last only until I wash it off, but that's more than I've gotten from any other product.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
This is more like a primer than a treatment per se, but it does have treatment tendancies. That said, this is great in the morning for difusing my dark lines and tightening up the skin under my eyes. I really like it and can see a marked difference if I only apply to one eye. I do not need this for heavy-duty eye problems, this may not be as great for mature skin.

Horrid. Did not absorb, silicone based. Definately not recommend for 30 plus group. Prob the worst eye cream I have purchased, there are so many better ones!
