For two years I've been using the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye as my eye cream, morning and night time.

The cream consistency is not thick nor too runny, it does a great job keeping my under eye area moisturised and hydrated.

It has a calming scent, quite like Lavender, not at all overwhelming. I have never had any redness / irritation from this cream, which is a plus for my sensitive skin.

Regarding dark circles, I've noticed my eyes are less puffy and aren't as dark as they used to be. However I think this mostly also due to my bedtime routine. I'm making sure to get at least 7-8 hours sleep, and I'm sticking to the same bedtime every night, even on weekends (when I'm not going out!). Also I try to stay away from my phone/computer at least an hour before I'm off to bed. I feel doing a consistent routine like this has helped to reduce puffy bags and the dark circles under my eyes. Mentally I feel better too ...

The only downside to this cream is that it has recently increased in price, however one tube of this using morning and night time has lasted for about 3 - 4 months.

I received a sample of this & I couldn't bring myself to use it under my eyes because it smells so bad. And the smell lingers. I don't like fragranced or in this case mixed oils creams on my face because they irritate my eyes & nose. This one's just yucko! There are few ingredients in this, but the second to the last is denatured alcohol.

Needed an eye cream since I'm in my 20s and my dark circles were driving me nuts. Went into Kiehl's as I liked their one serum (for pore-tightening) and was recommended this. I've been using this for about 3 months and can say that it does hydrate my under eyes which makes them really smooth and my dark circles are a bit lighter. You're never going to get rid of dark circles with creams unless you do some laser but this helps just plump the skin a bit more so it's not so obvious. I got a good sample of this and I'm almost finished, I went on the site to see the price and nearly died - it's just wayyyy to damn expensive. That is basically the only con I have with this product.

I used a generous sample of this up, and have to say that it feels very creamy and rich, though not as rich as the Kiehl´s Avocado eyecream. Although I didn´t notice a big difference in my fine lines, my skin felt properly moisturized and I didn´t notice any negative effects. I don´t think I would buy a full size, because for the price it didn´t wow me enough.

Got this as a sample and it makes me tear up. It stings and it was hard to open my eyes in the morning.

I only keep using this because I don't like the feeling of throwing money out the window.. It does absolutely NOTHING. I could use any day cream under my eyes and it would do the job. I'm realistic: Even though it promises miracles such as reducing dark circles and fine lines, I didn't expect too much. But I must say that I was expecting that it did something. At least help my concealer in setting in place and not looking dry.. I tried my friend's "Eye Alert" (also Kiehl's).. It was definitely better. You could actually feel it cool down the puffiness under your eyes.. The consistence was more as a primer (but still creamy) under the eye which was great for my fine lines. I would stick with this one if I haven't found another alternative when I run out of this one.. Waste of money!!

I got this last Christmas I was so excited. I had heard so much about this cream. Now over 6 months later with consistent use I still haven't seen any result what so ever. And it actually dried my under eye area out. I have never tried any other products that did that with my combination-oily skin :(

Being half Desi and seeing that side of my family I knew that dark circles were just a part of my DNA. I've always bought eye creams & gels (Chanel, YSL & shiseido) since I was 16 to help ease the discoloration underneath my eyes. Nothing worked, I always had to end up purchasing heavy duty concealer. I bought this eye cream on a whim off the recommendation of KathleenLights (YouTube beauty "guru") from Bloomingdales.

I have been using it for the past 3 months and can tell you I see so much of a difference. I don't need to wear an orange concealer to cover the dark circles anymore! I simply just use the Maybelline age rewind concealer and it is enough coverage. I haven't finished the tube yet (little goes along way) but I am for sure a fan of this stuff. I put it on every night or every other night.

Yes it smells like an herbal apothecary but I find the scent rather calming. I will repurchase unless I find something better.

I don't believe in eye cream miracle so all I ask for an eye cream is to keep well hydrated under my eyes......and this cream does her job
