Started using this on the 13th around my left eye area and the Ultrasmoothing eye serum on my right to be able to compare the difference - both were sachet sizes and both lasted me roughly the same amount of time. Whilst I didn't like the Ultrasmoothing for various reasons (please see my seperate review for it), I did notice better results using the Age Reversal one. The biggest difference was how much brighter my eye area looked on the left side, compared to the right. The ingredients list is almost twice as long and includes good stuff like Retinol - possibly the only ingredient that can actually reduce fine lines. Did I see any reduction in fine lines? Not at all! It would take several months of daily use to see that kind of effect, especially as the concentration of Retinol in here is not that high as it is in face serums (for obvious reasons). Add to that ceramides, peptides and other good things and you have a winner! My only slight dislike is that I found it a bit greasy. It took at least 15 minutes for the oily layer to sink in and that's keeping in mind I only used the smallest amount each time. I do have oily lids, so I reckon if you have a dry eye area, your skin will probably drink this straight up and you won't even notice the texture. Overall a nice eye cream but I will probably keep searching for my HG.

I was a big fan of this product... until it started to give me break-outs (after applying it every night for about one year).

Such a pity... had to find myself another good anti-aging eye cream.

This is a nice cream that sinks in well and is moisturising but I just don't think its strong enough to see a huge difference. I feel that the Dr Brandt retinol eye cream does a lot more for a similar price. The packaging is great but I also don't think this layers well over make up, in that it causes it to roll. I used the entire tube but won't repurchase.

Amazing eye cream. I had 2 trial sachets which have lasted about 3 weeks..and I've just purchased the full size. I was hesitant about spending this much on an eye cream..I've never spent more than £35. But many of them have made no difference. This on the other hand...wow! Within a couple of uses I noticed a difference. It's an excellent base for eye makeup. My HG eye cream.

This is by far the best eye cream for fine lines and ageing eyes!!! I've tried so many high end brands and this eye cream has transformed the skin around my eyes. I am coming to the end of my tube so will be repurchasing but I've used it long enough to recommend this product. I had fine lines and this cream has made all of them disappear apart from one which still needs to fully disappear but has nearly gone. Price wise it is expensive but I'd rather pay this much for a product that works than waste money on various eye creams that don't do anything at all!

The best eye cream ever! This has saved my eyes from wrinkles which had begun to appear, as if by magic they've gone. It's truly miracle stuff and I'd highly recommend it. It may be worth mentioning that it takes a bit of getting used to and gave me terribly sore skin to begin with. Be patient, follow the advice to only use every other night and it will be worth it! :)

Yet another Dermalogica product I love.

Pro: it comes in a tube, so no unhygienic pot to stick your fingers in and get the cream contaminated. A little goes a very long way. Non greasy, non sticky, non dropping into the eyes. A line I had on the upper eyelid started to disappear. The whole eye area started to look firmer and brighter after a couple of weeks if use. The slightly exfoliating effect is just what I need to keep this delicate area under control.

Cons: I do not use it by day, because of the Retinol content, and once every other night is enough exfoliating effect for me. So I need another eye cream to balance the effect of this one. But I dot mind, as I was already rotating products.

Would recommend for its gentle exfoliating effects and might buy again, especially for winter use.

I waited a long time to review this because I wanted to see if the results were all hype. I have been using this cream for at least three months now, mostly at night. While I do not have a very aged eye, I wanted to repair and protect and this cream seemed to meet all of the criteria. It also boasts some nice extras like peptides, which made this an enticing purchase. At first, I did not notice any change in the surface of the skin. Over time, I can see that the undereye skin is smoother and that fine lines are being kept at bay. While this cream is not the most hydrating, it does keep my eyes looking fresh. I will continue to purchase this product.

The Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex is the first eye cream I've used that I've actually seen results from. My under eye area is quite dehydrated and lined (pretty sucky for a 30 year old!), and after a couple of weeks of using this, I noticed quite a difference. There was ANOTHER line creeping it's way in under my eye, but the Age Reversal Eye Complex has helped to make it a lot less obvious, and I imagine that if I keep on top of it, it will go away all together - yusss!!! Under each eye I have two lines that are deeper, and I don't think that they will be going anywhere soon, BUT I have noticed that they've become shorter, so there's hope yet, ladies and gentlemen!
You absolutely must stick to the application rules for using this product, otherwise you'll end up with puffy eyes in the morning...not so attractive...
I've found the texture to be quite light - almost gel like, and it sinks in reasonably quick. It doesn't have much of a smell, and doesn't irritate my under eye area like some eye creams / gels have done for me in the past.
I use this product in the evenings only, and then use the Total Eye Care one in the day time as it has SPF protection in it. I can't imagine that the results would be any different if I stopped using the Total Eye Care with this product, although I do like to protect the area as much as possible from the sun to try to prevent more lines...
I would definitely recommend this product to people who are concerned with fine lines in their under eye area - if it has worked wonders on mine, the possibilities for you are endless, I'm sure.
As I stated in my Total Eye Care review - I am looking for a concealer to hide my dark (purple circles), but also one that doesn't sneak into all of my lines...if you know of any good ones I should try, I'd love to hear from you!!!
Thanks, and I hope this helps you make your decision! x
