I've been using this for two weeks and I love it. I wear glasses all the time and I was looking for something that would protect the sensitive skin around my eyes and brighten it a bit. It is a bit expensive but it has super nice ingredients and most importantly, broad spectrum SPF. Most day eye creams don't include SPF and that renders them useless. I wear this eye cream during the day and apply Weleda Wild Rose Renewing Eye Cream at night. My eyes have never looked better.

I love, love, love this product. Been using it for 3 months. I notice a reduction in wrinkles and it protects my eye.area. Great product and I will buy it till the day I die.

Although I am not really in need of an eye cream in terms of anti-ageing, I really wanted something with SPF to help protect my under eye area from the sun. There aren't really a wide range of eye creams with SPF in so my choice was between this and a couple of others, so I weighed up pros and cons of each and went for this. Probably the main decision I chose this out of the others is because it is in a tube and I don't want a product in a jar - it is not very sanitary. The cream does have a tiny hint of a scent but I don't even notice it at all. This instantly hydrates my under eye area which I love. It also slightly brightens up my under eye area too, which I don't really care for but it is a bonus because of my dark circles. I also love how this product makes my concealer apply better as well, and I am no longer left with creased concealer by the end of the day. When I run out of this I will definitely consider buying it again if I don't find a better product.

The product separated after only a few weeks of use. Now when I squeeze the tube, what comes out is a thin runny oil and a blob of thick lotion. Also, the hole in the tube is too big - too much (now separated) product comes out.

I would not have purchased this if I had not received a full-sized sample through a recent department store promotion. I don't use eye creams. My eye area is oily and I have only a few fine lines, so I've never felt eye cream was necessary. Whatever I use on my face, I also use near my eyes.


I am obsessed with sunscreen, and I have been in search of the perfect foundation and concealer containing adequate sunscreen for a long time. I can use some chemical sunscreens on my face, but not usually near my eyes, which are very sensitive. I tried this for a few days around my eyes and it didn't cause additional greasiness in the eye area, but I just didn't know if it was worth using a separate product.

Then Kevyn Aucoin's The Sensual Skin Enhancer (SSE) entered my life. I found that mixing a small amount of SSE with this eye sunscreen produced the best concealer I've ever used, with adequate physical sunscreen to boot! I let the SSE warm on the back of my hand, then mix in a small bit of Superdefense with a palette knife or makeup spatula. I apply around the eye area in dots, then blend gently with either my fingers or my RT setting brush. No creasing, no cakiness, no problems of any kind. It doesn't make my eye makeup smudge (as many concealers do) and I find the SPF reassuring.

I expect I will continue to purchase this after my sample runs out. For me, it's the perfect mixing medium for SSE as an under-eye concealer.

I am on my second tube. I was looking for a light moisturizer with SPF and this provides that, and more. My under-eye area are looks brighter after application, perhaps due to the fact that this is a physical sunscreen. I was not looking for something to hide under-eye circles.

I have to say this is better than I expected. I received this as a sample and it has been great for me. I have VERY sensitive skin and eyes and have had no problem with this product...I have also found that my eye shadow and liner stay on better and longer, this acts very much like a primer. I use it over my moisturizer and I think those that don't like it is because they are looking for it to moisturize and it doesn't, it protects....I am a big fan of Clinique and have learned how to use one product with another....each product has special properties and if used in combination with another product you will have great skin as a result. Most if not all of Clinique is expensive, but it is the BEST line of products that I have found for sensitive skin. I would recommend this for all skin types.....

I have thin, delicate skin under my eyes and have worn sun screen everyday for the past 15 years, but don't put it under my eyes. Everything is always too thick for the eye area so I have depended on big glasses and big hats. After using this for a month I wouldn't be without it. It is light enough to apply without pulling at my under eye area. I also put it on my upper eye area (brows too). iving in Florida at the beach, sun protection is a must for my very Irish skin. I also like that it's moisturizing, has no fragrance and the spf 20 is a must. I highly recommend this and I bought some as a stocking stuffer gift for my sister.

Very negative reviews on this, but I had to give it a try--there are so few treatment/sunscreen products for the eye, especially with only physical sunblock, and Clinique has done such a great job defending the rest of my face for such a long time with City Block Sheer 25 SPF. So now I have something from a company I trust to use to protect my eyes besides sunglasses. I had been using the City Block on and off on the eyelid, but it interfered with shadow application. This is much sheerer, and lighter, and does not migrate (which is why I think some find it not very moisturizing), and goes a little way towards masking the veins in my lids and brightening the area. What appeals to me about this is that it is a treatment, not just a sunscreen, so I think the results will be gradual and cumulative. For now I'm happy to have the sun protection!

I love this. It moisturizes my skin and brightens the area all around my eyes. I bought it for the SPF, which has never irritated my skin or my eyes, and it does not give me milia, so I think this cream is perfect.
