Hurt my eyes

I had such high hopes for this product. I researched it and read reviews and REALLY wanted it to work. Unfortunately I didn't get to use it beyond a few day because it made my eyes hurt really badly. I tried a couple of times with the same results so I had to give up. I don't want to knock the product but if you have sensitive skin or eyes be forewarned. On a bright note, the return process with Birchbox was very simple, so if you want to try this product, I would recommend getting it here just in case you have a reaction like I did.

Not good for darker skin tones

I wanted to love this product, but am not impressed. I've been using this for upwards of a month and have seen little to no result. It does sting a bit so if you have sensitive eyes I wouldn't recommend it. I also wonder if it only works on those with certain types of dark circles because I have tan skin and it did nothing for me. Back to the drawing board...

Not my favorite

Even though I am careful to keep this product away from my eye, it somehow still managed to irritate my eyes. I wasn't able to use it long enough to see results.

Works a little, stings eyes

This product smells really nice, and is easy to apply. It does seem to have a visible effect. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and have noticed a change. However, for the half hour or so after I apply it, my eyes sting like they're dry/tired and water like crazy. I have to wait to apply makeup due to the tearing up. If I'm really careful to pat it on lower, and let it dry before moisturizing, I can mostly avoid this, but it is a pain as that isn't the only area where I want it to do its thing.

I think it's working!
Purchased

I bought this and the strivectin-ev face dark spot and I can see a change in both my under eye area and my facial skin. It is definitely lightening both areas, and I've tried almost everything on the market for my dark circles. It's been six weeks now, but slow and steady wins the race.

love this
Purchased

I will be purchasing a full size of this in the future. I can see a difference. Dark circles have seemed to disappear so I'm hoping with continued use they will fade more and more.

OK, not GREAT

I have had dark circles since I was a little girl. They are genetic, my mother has them too and no amount of water or sleep or change in eating habits has helped. I have seen this product on the market for a while but could never justify the high cost. So once I accumulated enough BB points to cut the cost significantly, I went for it.

I experienced the same eye watering and stinging that others have, but it's gone down significantly. I have been using for several months, and I'm noticing some decrease in darkness. But not nearly enough to forego under eye concealer. I just don't know if it's actually doing enough to justify buying another one after this runs out. With a face of normal makeup my circles looks fine, but if I have a late-night they are just about what they used to be. Along with this, I've gotten higher-quality concealer and learned how to apply it like a pro, so I also don't know if it's the makeup or the corrector helping me!

I won't outright say don't buy it, but I haven't seen enough amazing results to completely recommend it.

seeing an improvement

This is one of the first eye creams that i have used that i am actually seeing results from. It has taken about 2 weeks but the circles under my eyes are noticable lighter.

High Hopes

I've been using this product for about a week after deciding to make the purchase based on the great reviews.

I use it faithfully twice a day, and have been for about a week. I definitely have some moments where it makes my eyes burn, but it's not severe enough to stop using the product. I'm hoping that I'll get a little more used to it as I continue.

I feel like I may have noticed a subtle difference thus far, and am excited to see the "two week difference." In fact, I am wishing that I had taken a "before" picture to see what the difference is.

Worth a Try

I got this because the reviews were so promising. I'm only about 3 days into the 2-week treatment, but I will not give up. My eyes burn a little, but I think that's just because they're sensitive. Hoping that will subside after a week or two. Looking forward to seeing my dark circles diminish!
