Not for me

It may be great for other girls, but I certainly don't need it yet and when I tried it, it didn't absorb. My skin felt weird and without result.

HATED this eye cream!!
Sampled

I was SO disappointed with this eye cream - I have owned benefit products in the past without having any issues, however, this eye cream actually STUNG when I put it on! I had heard from other reviewers that they felt a "tingly" feeling, but this was actually a really painful burning feeling. If your skin is even remotely sensitive, do NOT use this product. I have used plenty of other eye creams without having any reactions like this one. I tried looking through the ingredient list to see if there was anything I should have looked out for, but all I found were a bunch of unrecognizable chemical ingredients. From now on I will be sticking to only natural/organic brands for my eye area, and staying away from products with ingredients that I can't pronounce.

Worth trying

although it went on easily and smooth I didn't see immediate results. A little does go a long way with this product. Worth trying

Made my skin burn
Sampled

I was excited to try this product, because I already use and like several other Benefit products (including their under eye concealer). But when I put this on, the skin under my eyes immediately started burning/stinging pretty painfully. I don't want to take any chances with my eyes, so I wiped it off right away and didn't use the rest of the sample.

Wierd smell, and caused redness and irritation
Sampled

Not impressed. I received a sample in my August box. What a disappointment. I hated the packaging, and there was barley product inside! I used a entire packet on my skin test sample. I noticed a spoiled smell to it, it's possible I got a spoiled sample, not uncommon for Birchbox. I tested it on my hand to make sure it wouldn't irritate my face, and in ten min. I was soaking my hand in ice water to get the burning to stop. It was not only a bad experience for the product but Birchbox it's self. Be careful with samples ladies!

part of my daily routine
Purchased

I struggle to find concealer or moisturizers that actually work with puffy, dark undereye circles in the morning. This smooth cream is the perfect solution. It seems to perk things right up and set the stage for a light powder on top to help conceal shadows. It never feels sticky or too oily; very absorbent. Benefit is a quality brand, and the daily use to this product makes it worth the price.

Didn't fade my dark circles
Purchased

I had high hopes for this eye cream. After one months use I found that it did not fade the dark circles under my eyes . what I did notice is that it made the skin under my eyes seem thinner & crepey.

Didn't do anything for me

I got it as a sample last month and tried using it many times but it still has done nothing for the dark circles under my eyes.

Caused eyelid irritation

I got this eye cream as a sample in my Birchbox and really liked it.

However, after a few days of use, I noticed that my lids were irritated and the skin started flaking.

I wasn't positive that the Benefit cream caused the irritation, so I stopped using it for a few weeks. Eventually, I gave the cream another try and sure enough, the irritation was back.

It's now in my trashcan.
