I got a free sample from Sephora and put it on in the evening. I woke up surprised to find my eyes swollen and parts of my skin burnt. I've never had this reaction to any other eye cream and quite disappointed.

LOVE. I absolutely can't go with out this whipped luxurious eye cream. I've used it day and night for almost a year now and every other eye cream I've tested doesn't compare. I gives moisture with out a greasy feel and makes any concealer go on smoother. It's a refreshing non-irritating balm and I absolutely recommend it. My only complaint would be the packaging, but I know the texture wouldn't be achieved in a tube or a pump. The price seems steep, but you only need a dab on each eye so it really lasts. Its a 360 ophthalmologist tested cream, and is a great choice for those looking to maintain a youthful eye area. I don't believe it's as successful with deep existing wrinkle repair. I really love every Algenist product I've used but this one is my must have.

I got deluxe sample of this from Sephora. We just moved, and I used this before a 16 hour drive from Maryland to Florida. Within a couple of hours, my extremely dry eye area was burning and itching from extreme lack of hydration. It was so bad that I used aquaphor as a makeshift eye cream, just to soothe my eyes while traveling. Needless to say, I would not spend money on this.

I've been using this eye cream for about 6 months and I'm still loving it. The one I was using before was just not providing enough moisture but I still loved it's ability to fight my dark circles. Would you believe it that this works even better in that department? It helps with the little puffiness I have too. On top of that, it's moisturizing enough to help with my itsy bitsy fine lines... I'm only 40, after all :)

I've been using a .23 fluid ounce "deluxe" sampe of this (thanks Sephora, sometimes you really come through! The full-sized version is .5 fluid ounces and $65!) for a few months now and I've come to the conclusion that this is a pretty decent eye balm/cream. Now it won't work permanent miracles, despite containing Alguronic Acid, but it is a non-irritating eye cream that absorbs quickly (nearly no residual stickiness left behind) and doesn't cause smudging with my foundation and concealer.

I have a fair amount of fine lines under my eyes and using this eye balm once or twice a day does indeed minimize the appearance of the fine lines immediately after application, but the results are of course temporary. I do also suffer from slight puffiness and the occasion dark circles - I don't feel this eye cream is especially effective at addressing those concerns for me but again, it does nicely prep the under eye area for application of coverage products.

Overall I think this is a good eye cream, but it isn't worth the $65 price tag for me, so I will not be purchasing it once I've depleted my sample. However, if Sephora happens to have this as a 100 point perk or deluxe sample, I might be inclined to order it again.

This product didn't work for me. It lacked moisture, smooth application and has an inconvenient packaging. It has no smell just a plain white cream in a little jar that I need to scoop out for daily eye cream.

I tried dabbing with ring finger around my eyes and gliding it in circles around my eyes, and still no luck.

I've been using this for 2 months and I noticed no changes in fine lines or dark circles. I gained some bumps around my eyes and had to get it extracted to prevent it from scarring. I'm not sure what's this product suppose to help me accomplish, because I saw no good results on my eye area.

The only thing I figured it did was a smoother application for my urban decay eyeshadow primer.

I received a generous sample of this from Sephora and used it for a few months. Then I bought the full size (0.5 ounce size for $65). The cream is rich and luxurious without being heavy or oily. I apply it in the am and pm and it doesn't interfere with eye makeup application when I apply it in the am. I have a wrinkle in between my eyebrows that has significantly softened since using this balm and my undereye area looks more supple. I do have some light smile lines under my eyes on my upper cheeks area that I am waiting to see if they improve. It's pricey, but a little goes a long way.
