I recently used up a sample tube of this and I can't say I was really all that impressed. I'm not particularly picky with eye creams as I've been subsisting off samples for awhile. This one seemed notable because it contains SPF. As other reviewers have noted, this eye cream doesn't seem to fully absorb on the skin. It felt a little bit tacky, even after several minutes. I don't think I have especially sensitive eyes, but accidentally patting this too close to your actual eye balls may cause a little irritation. As for the moisturizing properties - this eye cream did an okay job. Nothing spectacular. Foundation and under eye concealer did seem to sit okay on top of this eye cream, but I wouldn't apply powder direction to any areas where you've strictly applied this eye cream - patchiness will result! The SPF 15 is a nice feature, but it's not enough to make me want to go out and purchase this mediocre eye cream.

I first got this as a sample from an esthetician at a Massage Envy. Before the sample was gone, my husband, my daughter and I noticed a marked decrease in fine lines around my eyes. I've been using it for 4 months now, and have had none of the stinging, burning, or dryness I saw mentioned in other reviews. Maybe I'm just lucky. I DID order a large squeeze-tube of it through Amazon ($30ish for 2 oz - professional size); it's possible that I got a knockoff product, although I'm getting the same results from the Amazon product as I did with the sample. It did make a difference on my 49-year-old face.

Skip this stuff. It's over priced garbage. It stings, sits heavy on the skin and doesn't absorb at all. It didn't help brighten the skin, it smelled terrible. Such a let down, You can buy several of the Garnier eye rollers for the price of one of these. At least those deliver some noticeable results!

I had a Murad Facial and the eye cream was one of my favorite products they used. Unfortunately it retails for $68 and my skinceuticals eye cream is a tad less $$ and IMO more effective.Good but way too much $$.

It moisturizes nicely but I have noticed after some time it discolors which means the Vitamin C has lost its properties. I would like a higher SPF and more helpful anti-aging ingredients. This is basic. Better money spent else where.

it says to dab a small amount of the product to your brow bone on the package. but if you do so, your eyes will start to drop tears and sting awfully. online helpers on official murad site says to apply the cream on the orbital bone.I did it but I couldn't get what is the use of it as an eye cream. no other eye cream did this to me before. don't even try to use it.

I bought a sample on eBay because I wanted to test the product out to see if it worked before purchasing it. Eye creams can be super expensive!I have been using the eye cream for about 3 weeks day and night and have noticed some good and bad differences. Pros:1. My dark circles are much lighterCons1. It stings my eyes when applied2. I am developing small same colour as skin bumps under the eye3. Fine lines have not changed at allI do recommend people try out a tester if you are interested in this cream, as it will not suit everyone.Other things I liked about this eye cream was how easily it glided on; you only need to use a small amount ( my tester 4ml is lasting forever); SPF; doesn't leave my eye greasy looking.

This is a particularly terrible eye cream for me, by far the worst I've tried. I look very tired when I wear it, so much so that friends have commented with concern. My eyes look puffy and even *feel* heavy. It's odd. It isn't an allergic reaction, because I feel no irritation or discomfort. It simply feels like the area around my eyes retains more fluid with this eye cream. Worse, my minor dark circles become more pronounced. There are no benefits.

I hate this eye cream. When I used this, it makes my eyes all watery and tired-looking as if I haven't slept for a week. I used bobbi brown creamy eye concealer and when I used it with my HG eye cream from avon, it looks flawless. but when I used this with my eye concealer, it settles onto my fine lines. Not to mention having to wipe my teary eyes. I loved Essential-C line but not this product. For the price, I expected more.

For such an expensive eye cream ($67, .5oz) I would expect a lot more. Thankfully I was given a free sample (.14oz) a few weeks ago, so I didn't have to waste money on such a mediocre product. The only positive things that I can say about this are that it has SPF--albeit fake, chemical sunscreen--and that a regular sized bottle will last you a very long time. I can probably still get another month or so of use out of my sample tube. Other than that, however, this product doesn't do anything for me. It's certainly not moisturizing enough for me and I've seen no improvement in my (very minimal) fine lines. Unfortunately this also does nothing for my hereditary undereye circles, which I was very hopeful about. I've also noticed some redness and stinging if the cream comes even remotely close to my eye. I may continue to use this just because I don't want it to go to waste, but I would never purchase this with my own money. My Burt's Bees Radiance Eye Cream is much better quality for 1/4 of the price.
