Oh my god i am in eye cream heaven! This is by far the best eye cream i have ever tried(and i have tried many many, trust me).
I have always had issues with eye puffiness as well as with dark circles. As a result, i looked as if i was always tired and many people told me that because of my skin, i look 26+ even though i am only 20 (smoker's lines contributed to that too). And then it hit me: If i do look 26 at the age of 20, how old will i look when i actually hit 26?
On my quest for the perfect eye and face moisturisers that could reverse the damage (caused by smoking, sun exposure, alcohol, stress etc) only one brand seemed good enough to pull this off: Korres. I got Materia Herba eye cream and Quercetin and Oak cream for the face.
When i got home, i removed my make-up and only applied the cream under only one eye. To be honest i didn't expect too much because, after all, it's just a cream, not a plastic surgeon. But this cream proved me wrong cause once my skin absorbed it, the result was dramatic. I saw the dark circles and the puffiness i have been trying to fight since the age of 16 dissapear in front of my eyes! Korres did what La Prairie, La Mer, Chanel, Estee Lauder(and all the other high end brand eye creams i've tried) couldn't. Firm, radiant, youthfull, flawless and perfectly hydrated undereye area after only one, i repeat, ONE application.
What makes me love this even more? Results are actually real and last in the long term, we are not talking about a temporary result that goes poof! after a couple of hours(i'm on the third week of use by the way). Last week, i went on 3-day vacation to visit a friend and i forgot to bring the cream with me... I was shocked, how would i last 3 days without my miracle worker? It turns out, it all went smoothly. After 3 days of using no eye cream whatsoever, dark circles+puffiness didn't make a come-back. Korres Materia Herba Eye Cream was created to become a woman's Holy Grail.

Clinical Studies:
- Increases Skin Hydration by 53% after 2 hours (immediate moisturising effect).
-The moisturising effect was maintained after 8 hours (in vivo clinical test among 20 women 22-57years, 2, 4, 6 and 8 hours after a single application.
-According to in vivo clinical test, it was observed that a cream containing Chlorella Vulgaris Extract after 28 days of use decreases pigmentation of the skin in 73% of the volunteers.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overall : Of course this is an HG and i will definately repurchase. Costs 22Euro in Greece(all Korres products are cheaper in Greece comparing to other countries, since Korres is a Greek company)., 27Euro in Europe and i think it's about 40-45USD in USA(not sure so don't quote me on that). This cream is also available in anti-ageing formula for more mature ladies - this (rather long :p) review is for the regular formula.

Materia Herba is the new range from Korres which promotes itself as being made of at least 90% natural ingredients. It comes in your typical 'syringe' style tube and has a average herbal smell. Here in Australia it retails for about 65 dollars which is about mid range pricing.

This eye moisturiser smoothes eyepuffiness and vascular imperfections. With potent antioxidant Sunflower oil and Shea butter, Plantago and Sambucus extracts.
According to Korres' clinical trials this moisturiser showed an increase of skin hydration by 53% after 2 hours (immediate moisturising effect) which was maintained for 8 hours and the cream (containing Chlorella vulgaris extract), after 28 days of use, decreases the pigmentation of the skin in 73% of the volunteers.

Use
Apply daily around the eyes, avoiding the upper-eyelid area.

I personally found this cream to be very effective. I'm very sceptical of eye treatments in general but found this to be very moisturising and very good at decreasing the dark pigments under my eyes both during the day and night. Will continue to buy this until I start to worry about wrinkles. Also interested in trying the rest of the Materia Herba line
