I use this product in conjuction with Strivectin's Tightening Eye Serum and Bliss' The Youth As We Know It Eye Cream. It's effective at brightening my under eyes. It's gentle and absorbs into the skin well. No complaints. Will buy again.

The Jury's Still Out

I think I like this product. IM being very particular because of what I paid for it. It is an ok moisturizer for the under eye area. I have to use only a little in the morning or it leaves a noticeable layer. I do think I see brightening of the skinunder my eyes. I've used this now for about two weeks. I'llknow when its time to reorder if its worth purchasing again.

Best eye cream I've used

Love this eye cream. I've all ready used entire bottle and need to re-purchase. I saw instant brightening results. Made my under eye area glow. Expensive but worth the investment...a little goes a long way.

Wow this stuff works!

A little goes a LONG way! This cream really does brighten up those dark circles we all sometimes get, thus brightening up your whole face! I no longer have to worry about going into work looking sicker than a dog when I have had a sleepless night!

I think this stuff works

I tried this as a sample and there was only a few days of product to use. In the few days, it seemed to get rid of the dark circles. I didn't completely put away the concealer, but I probably could have gotten away without using it. Felt a little sticky going on and I used less than the recommended amount. Overall, I would buy again if it didn't cost so much.
