            I had high hopes for this product. I have tried many eye creams high end, cheap, organic. They all have the same result. It burns my skin. This one is no exception. In my opinion it smells nice and is creamy. If you don't have sensitive skin this will probably work great. It's just not for me.

                  I think it's still too early for me to really say this product is AMAZING. I like the product though! My eyes aren't too bad they just have a crease under each one that I wanted to see if this could help tighten up a bit. I do like that you can feel the area tighten up after you apply the cream. You can even see right away that your eye looks brighter, so I wouldn't doubt this would work for dark circles. But so far so good!

                    Comments about Philosophy Hope In A Tube:

                    I have tried various Philosophy products throughout the years and this is the only one I have stuck with. I am 42 and do not want to look old ever, so I have used this product almost daily since my early 30's. I am happy with the results at this point. I have only used it below my eyes and while I do not generally have bags, is has eliminated the limited puffiness I have had on occasion and it has kept the wrinkles away . I have been faithful with sunscreen too, but that tends to burn if it gets in my eyes so I have just used this. It does seem the consistency has thickened some over the years and that I need to reapply more than when I first started using it back in the day (could be my age now), but it doesn't seem the ingredients have been altered much (unlike some of their products I used in the past). There is little to no smell with this product. I have tried products double the price of this and was not impressed. I will continue to use this product unless I find something more effective in the future.

                          hope in a tube firming eye and lip cream will last anywhere from 2-3 months, depending on how much product you use in each application.

                      • Q:

                        What is the difference between this product and hope in a jar eye? I occasionally will get dry flaky skin under my eyes and notice caking or dry buildup when I apply concealer and I want to choose the best product to eliminate dryness and uneven/rough texture around the eyes.

                          A:

                          hope in a tube will mainly address loss of hydration in the eye area, and offers skin smoothing benefits. renewed hope in a jar eye will address the beginning signs of aging, including fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness.
