As a reference I am a caucasian female and I have hereditary dark circles and puffiness. All the women I'm my family experience this. I also have lots of allergies, and irregular sleep patterns that can affect the appearance of my under eyes. So I decided to give this product a shot, and I've been using it for a month straight. I've used it everyday, 2 times a day. I took before and after pictures and I was very surprised by the difference I saw. I'd say I started to notice a change about 2 weeks in, and after a month I can say this product definitely works. BUT, do I still have some darkness and puffiness? Yes. I'm not sure if my results will get even better over time, but so far I'm seeing theres only so much this product can do. This isn't a serum that's going to completely irradicate any puffiness and dark circles immediately. With that being said, it won't start working just after the first use either. It's not something that's going to give you instant, dramatic results. I used this once in the morning and once before bed as an eye cream. I use it after my thinner, watery products and before my heavier, cream products. The consistency of this is like a very thin gel almost, but it's not sticky. It leaves a very slight tackiness on the skin, but its hardly noticable unless you're analyzing it. Still, it may bother some people, but doesnt bother me personally. Also, I'd recommend doing a patch test before applying this to your eyes to see if you have a reaction to it. I didn't experience anything, but I know some people have. It really didnt feel like anything on my skin, no sensation whatsoever. So overall, would I recommend this? Well that depends. If you have very severe, hereditary dark circles and puffiness, this product probably wont do much. But if you have moderate to light puffiness and dark circles, whether it be hereditary or occasional, I think you would benefit from this product. Something else I noticed is that this product helps puffiness more than it helps dark circles, so if you're only looking to treat dark circles it probably wont give you the results you're hoping for. But anyway, I'm satisfied with my purchase and will continue to use it!
I started using this about 3 months ago. I never had much puffy-ness or terribly dark undereye circles, so maybe that's why I don't see a huge difference. It might work better for people who actually have really puffy/dark undereyes. I have noticed that my undereye skin is much softer, concealer goes on more smoothly/less cakey, but I still feel like I need a little undereye concealer. No difference in fine lines around my eyes. I tried this because it is the only eye serum that The Ordinary has. I wish they would develop an undereye serum that targets the fine lines/crows feet. I don't really have crows feet, but I think that people would like that and I'd like to prevent them from starting. I'd still recommend this. Give it a few months before you review. pros: you only need a tiny drop and the bottle lasts a really long time.

Alex from IL
Used this for 2 weeks now as directed. Nothing has changed at all. Hasn't done a single positive thing as it stated it would. :(
Lynsey from FL
This stuff is fantastic! I love how quickly it works and I don't look like the undead anymore! Love it! will be repurchasing!
Dana from Woodland Hills, CA
Been using for three weeks and noticed no difference in my dark circles. Some reviewer's say they feel a tingle and I feel nothing. I've also read that it works well under eye patches but I saw no difference that way either
Would by again from Ulta
I never sleep well so this wasn't a cure all for me but it definitely helped a lot with my dark circles and puffiness in the morning

I purchased this serum and have been using it for around two weeks. I notice a significant reduction in amount and the severity of the darkness under my eyes. I'm very happy with how this product works. It's viscous so it only takes a drop to cover both eye contours. You will not regret purchasing this product

I use the product only in the morning but you can use it at night. It applies great and I can see a difference in my eye bags.
Baroness Isabeau from Tacoma, WA
No real dark circles to contend with (I recommend a good concealer for that) but I do have chronically puffy lids and under eyes. I have used more expensive treatments but nothing worked as well as this. I even put it on the one side of my lower lip that, for no apparent reason, swells a bit and have seen improvement, Only a temporary sting if I get a bit in my eye but nothing more. Like many serums, it can feel a little sticky at first but that quickly goes away. Give it a few minutes before you go on with your makeup routine. Oh! I keep a bottle of it in the frig for "extra puffy emergencies." Don't know that it expedites the "de-puff" but it sure feels nice.

The price is affordable I like the texture but I don't see not result yet. I'm using this product for the past two weeks but I'm willing to give it a lil but more time to see results. Not bad for the price .
Ashleyciaf from Jackson, Nj
Very hydrating for your under eyes! I wouldn't say it gets rid of dark circles but it's definitely a great eye serum for a good price!

Helps with dark circles
Mimi from STL
I have struggled with my dark circles all my life.....I've used so many natural sources to get rid of them and nothing has work. I've only been using this product for 3 weeks to a month and I have notice a difference. At first, I just used a small dab on my ring finger and gently patted around the contour of my eyes and I've notice no change. So, I started using a generous amount and start noticing a difference. I be sure to use it am and pm along with my other "The Ordinary" products. Im ditching my spectacles and getting contacts soon and I want to feel secure about my dark circles. I will buy forever. P.S. give it time, don't nothing happen over night, just stay consistent.

I've definitely seen some change in my eye-bags. I took some before and after pictures and recently started getting compliments by people who I didn't even tell I was using the product and family members. It isn't a dramatic change but it's way better than before. We all still have to remember sometimes eye-bags are sometimes genetic and may not be fully removed but improved. I haven't had any reactions to it, I've had this product for about a month or so, maybe more now. Don't put it all the way near your eye. I use it twice a day, when I wake up after my morning routine and I keep it on till my night time routine and then put it on again before I sleep.

This is great and works amazing
butterfly from naples FL
I used it morning and night for about 5-6 weeks straight and nothing.
Dee from Trussville, Alabama
I use this after cleansing and exfoliating, then I use the Hyaluronic Acid and the Ascorbic Acid last.
Amy from Knoxville, Tennessee
This is not an overnight miracle - but I work night shift and definitely see a difference after using for two months. Yes, it burns; it has caffeine in it and it creates a tingling sensation.. worth the money to me :)
Hannah from Ohio
I love the feeling of this serum under my eyes. It's always cold and it feels nice! Although I don't have dark circles so I can't say if it works for that purpose, I can say I used to have pretty bad puffy eyes in the mornings but not anymore! This stuff totally helped my puffy eyes.
CA from San Diego, CA
Are use this in the morning and in the evening.

This works within the first few minutes of application. I apply AM and PM and my dark circles begin fading. Grateful for this product.
Ann from New Jersey
This only works as long as you're using it every morning and night. If I don't put it on in the morning by the end of the day my circles are back to being very dark. This product is only for temporary use.
Newbie from Morrow ohio
Great product and great price
Ken from Los Angeles, CA
I love the idea of a serum rather than a cream or balm for the eyes, however I just don't see any results with this product. I had high expectations for it to help with my fine lines and puffiness in the mornings, but I really just didn't see any difference. I have seen better results with creams that have better brightening ingredients. It also takes a while for this to absorb no matter how much I pat
