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.

doesn't work

I wanted to wait to review this product until I used this sample a couple weeks so I could give it a fair review. It really did nothing.

Not worth it

I have really bad under eye bags. This cream did nothing for me. I couldn't tell a difference in the appearance of my bags at all. I was so disappointed.

Not good.

At first this product seemed to be ok. Although I didn't see any difference in the dark circles, I figured I should keep using it to see if it progressed over time. A few days later I realized I had a burning sensation under my eyes where the cream was applied. I looked closely and my entire under eye was dried up!! The skin was beginning to peel! I immediately threw the product away and had to put vaseline on my eyes for about a week after to rehydrate the skin. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

No difference

I like the smell and texture of this product. I am in law school and I always look tired, so I have tried a lot of eye creams. This one I have noticed ZERO difference.

puffs and smooths wrinkles
Sampled

This creme puffs up the skin around your eyes and smooths out any wrinkles. I did not like the way it made my upper lid look swollen.
