Most Helpful Positive Review Remarkable Eye Product
I'm a returning-to-Clinique fan. I used their products extensively in my 20's, and now in my 40's, I'm back. And wow! I'm so impressed! I tried the Even Better Eyes product with much skepticism. I've tried other products and nothing seems to really *do* anything - in fact, I almost felt ridiculous even trying it. The only reason I did was because in returning to Clinique I have been so impressed with their other products and how it has dramatically improved the health and glow of my face, that I thought I'd give it a try. In general, I go with a more natural look - light powder, blush and gloss for the daily routine, though I do wear more for evenings out or special occassions - so I'm not a super heavy makeup wearer and I don't like products that look heavy, wear heavy, or seem artificial.
Under my eyes is dark and also puffy. It's enough that I avoid wearing my contacts because my glasses disguise it more. In returning to Clinique, I washed my face with the Clinique products just once and my face breathed a sigh of relief (UNBELIEVABLE difference), and then I applied the Even Better Eyes cream. I was astounded! It is light, but not overly creamy, and I have oily skin so I would pick up on that! Within 10 minutes I was seeing a difference in puffiness, but the results for diffusing some of the darkness under my eyes was immediate. I just kept staring at myself in the mirror!! It is subtle (not like applying a heavy concealer that looks cakey or obvious), but it is noticeable! Even my 15 year old daughter commented on how nice my face looked! The product wears so nicely, in fact, it leaves a very light, silky feel without leaving any oiliness behind. Only the very slightest amount is needed, so I anticipate the product lasting nicely! I'm sold! I never, ever thought I'd find an eye product that I thought was worth any money, let alone be so impressed with how naturally, beautifully and immediately it worked, but I'm sold on Even Better Eyes! Overnight, my undereye area looks younger, less puffy and not as dark! I'm back to wearing my contacts!
Most Helpful Critical Review I gave it a good chance
I have been using this product for about 7 months now, so I expected to see some major changes in my dark circles. Unfortunately, I have seen little if any change. I have read that dark circles are caused by pooled blood underneath the eye skin and that topical products will not work. I believe it. I have been disappointed too many times by products that claim to reduce dark circles. I love other Clinique products, but I'd advise passing on this one.
Reviewed by 520 customers Irritates My Eyes
Terri from Humble, TX
The cool-touch tip feels great for puffiness, but the cream irritates my eyes. I've tried to use minimal amounts of eye cream, but within minutes I can feel the stinging sensation and must wipe off every trace.
I've been using Clinique for years -- this is the only product with which I've had adverse effects.
Great applicator! Brightens & primes the under eye!
Kygrace from Colorado
I've only been using the product for a week 2-3x/day. I love that the applicator keeps me from rubbing/touching my under eye area with my fingers. It's cooling & soothing, and immediately brightens and refreshes my under eye circles, especially first thing in the morning. I already see a reduction in puffiness.The cream itself is silly smooth and slightly pigmented which almost works like an under eye primer before applying concealer or foundation. I'm hopeful for long-term results and reduced gray/blue tones under my eyes!
Just stains your skin
Chelsea from Tempe, AZ
I used as instructed and found that all it did was stain your skin to make it appear something was improving.
Did NOTHING for my dark circles
Pizzagirl71 from Mesa AZ
I used this product morning and night for 5 days. I saw absolutely no change in my dark circles or puffiness. The worst part was that when I washed my face at night my eye lids were red and sore. Nevertheless, I continued to try it for a few more days and my eyes became increasingly sore and red and they hurt.
I have stopped using this product and my eyes are almost back to normal, meaning that they do not have that stinging, burning feeling and about 50% of the extreme redness has dissipated.
Not worth it
Liz from Dc
I was disappointed with this purchase, I did not see any improvement in dark circles under my eyes.
Calibee from Westlake Village, California
No more raccoon eyes!
Vonnie from The Woodlands, Texas
I love the Clinique skin care line. I have very dark circles and was really hoping this would help, but it did nothing for me :(
Does not work!
Kward from Lodi, California
This product is way to expensive and I don't see any improvement in my dark circles.
I've been using this for 8 years & sadly notice no change.
kls718 from Maryland
Does it feel good? Yes, it's cooling to the eye area & I've continued to buy it because it helps hold my eye makeup in place. I have very dark circles around my eyes & honestly it hasn't done anything to help them. I've been using Clinique products for over 25 years & I guess was hoping I'd see a change in my dark circles. Sadly, that hasn't happened.
Feels Nice but Doesn't Have Long Term Changes
HS from DC Metro
The cooling applicator was amazing; however, i've used this for months and I don't really think it has long term affects. I really only think it covers up dark circles at the time (it is tinted like a concealer) and the cooling applicator helps reduce inflammation, but nothing that will actually work overtime to help reduce puffiness and dark circles.
bea from Fresno
im 20 with bad dark circles and this is a miracle product
hashov from delaware
I really like this product, the texture of the cream is nice & light,
Britt514 from Woodbridge, VA
I'm surprised there are so many negative reviews for this. In a week of use, there is a very noticeable difference in my eyes. This cream took ten years off, and I wake up looking like I could skip the makeup. I love it.
Feels great !
Lex from Hesperia ca
It feels great while applying fingers crossed I see results !
Brightens my Eyes!
Eliza from Oregon
I did not expect to see long term results from this product - I use repairwear eye cream for that. What I love about this product is how it naturally brightens my eyes! I use it under my eyes, around my eyes where I have smile lines, and on my lids. If I've had a bad night's sleep, I will gently dab on the All About Eyes Concealer, just under my eyes. It helps cover the really bad bags, but it doesn't work nearly as well as Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector to brighten my eyes. Even Better Eyes, goes on silky smooth but you do have to be careful to only get a small amount so you don't waste it. After I apply this product, I use the cold applicator all around my eyes to wake them up. Great product
I love Clinique! But this doesn't seem to do the trick :(
Mich from Georgia
I've used Cliniques moisturizers and acne skin care products for years and I LOVE them so I figured that this would work just as well. I don't usually write reviews but this is pretty pricy. If it works for other people great but it defiantly didn't work for me.
Licia from Lanett AL
I've used this product for about 2 months. It doesn't work! Too expensive for no results.
Reggie from New York
This eye cream I use at night and another during the day. It's not bad but could be better. 1) I don't like the tube would prefer it in a jar, I waste to much putting it on. 2) Not that big of a difference, just okay. I been using it for a year reordered a couple times, thinking it takes time. If I don't see a big improvement I will just use the one I use during the day.
No noticeable change
Caryn from Memphis, tn
I have been using this for about 3 months now. I haven't noticed any change whatsoever. Going back to all about the eyes. Hopefully it will work for me again.
Tatiana from N.Y.
When I sleep little, I have dark circles under my eyes. Cream works! It helps to refresh the face. I like.
No change at all after 6 mos. Of everyday use
Senoritaatx from Austin Texas
Waste of money. Been using religiously for the past 6 months and my dark circles are still there. I would at least have hoped for a slight change in them but nothing. Highly recommend the all about eyes cream that one does reduce the darkness. I should have stuck with what has worked for me but wanted to give this product a try since it was created to address dark circles specifically. Save yourself some money and definitely try the all about eyes. Takes about 2 mos. Of daily.am and PM use to see it working. Good luck.
Another fake product
Grammzie from Atlanta, GA
I use Clinique products mostly, and I'm usually satisfied, but my fellow shoppers please be aware that this product does absolutely nothing! I've used it since May faithfully and not one change in my dark circles. To me, being on a budget, this was an extravagance and waste. I don't see how anyone can actually claim this works. Even the pics shown don't represent much of a difference, if any. The pic might just be one taken during one of their better days which we all have; has nothing to do with the product.
This is my favorite item! Because it covers great!
Momma T from Michigan
It really works!
Good Product, not so good Packageing
carolynb from florida
I really like this product, the texture of the cream is nice & light, and I love the cool feeling of the metal applicator, my only problem is the packageing!
Firstly, all other full sized eye products are 15ml, so I feel it's a bit mean only putting 10ml in this tube!
Secondly, when the tube is full, it's easy to squeeze out just a little, however, when you get about 1/2 through the contents it's difficult to dispense without squirting out too much, and then alot gets wasted.
So it doesn't last nearly as long as the all about eyes roll-on which I also have
It Really Works!
Jlschlaffer from Houston, TX
This product really works for dark under eyes. That being said, it doesn't do much for wrinkles or puffiness. But as the name suggests, it really does WONDERS for darkness. My husband and I have both been using this and our under eyes have went from dark purple to *almost* our natural skin color. I need very little concealer now. I have been pairing this with the Clinique Eye De-puffer products and it's really a game changer!
