    Comments about L'Oréal Eye Defense:

    This product unfortunately gave me acne right underneath my eyes so I have to stop using it. I'll use the rest of it up on my hands to try and Fight the signs of aging there because it absorbs quickly and does a decent job moisturizing. Disappointed I didn't get the chance to see its effects on my under eyes.

      It did well with puffiness, however didn't do well with any other area it says it's supposed to improve.

      Comments about L'Oréal Eye Defense:

      I have terrible dark circles and this cream visibly lightens them! I used this product morning and night every day for a month and didn't see any permanent change which was a little disappointing, so now I just use it every morning after I wash my face and before makeup. It does the job and I am fine with it. Sometimes it slightly burns the skin... not sure why, but the burning disappears 30 seconds after application. For the price and results I will be buying this product again!

      Good Enough for Price

      By Miss_baconator

      from Berkeley, CA

      Comments about L'Oréal Eye Defense:

      I picked this up hoping to find a long lasting solution to my perennial dark circles and puffy eye bags, and this was well reviewed and inexpensive. When I apply in the morning or at night, it does quickly and visibly reduce the puffiness and some of the darkness. Plus it wears well under makeup, and one small jar goes a long way (I've had mine for about 2 months and I think I might be 1/3-1/2 way through the jar). But you do get what you pay for. While this is a short term fix, I've noticed no long term change in the state of my dark circles - if I have a rough night, they'll reappear with a vengeance. So it's more of a hangover product, pop it on after a night out and look more awake. In addition, for the love of all that is holy, do NOT let it get into your eye: whether it's the caffeine or the glitter, it absolutely burns. So when this runs out - if it ever does - I think I may upgrade to a retinoid that might have more long term results. But if you just need a quick pick-me-up for a good value, this is for you.

        Even my husband notices a difference. I naturally have very dark circles, this actually helps. In the winter, I also start getting very dry eyelids to the point where they start flaking. Wearing this every night, I saw a change within 2-3 nights.

          Comments about L'Oréal Eye Defense:

          This is a really nice, lightweight formula for under the eyes. I haven't been using it long enough to see any changes in dark circles, but it has a cooling effect which lends itself to de-puffing. HOWEVER, do NOT get the product right up against your lash line or into your eyes. There are very very small particles of glitter that burn like crazy if they touch my eyeball or inner lash line. If you're cautious with application, this product is worth it. (not sure why L'oreal really needed to put an irritant like glitter in an eye cream in the first place)

              Yes ! I never really rate products but this is a go to product. It reduced my eye bags drastically in two weeks. Smell is really no that bad. Easy to apply. I've actually recommended this product to a couple of my friends. It does not irritate the eyes at all p.s. I have a sensitive face. It's not greasy and you really dont have to apply much when applying maybe that's why it's so small. Wish it would come in a bigger.

                  Got this product because I wanted a everyday eye cream. I have tried a higher end one before and it really irritated my eyes and would make them water. This product doesn't not do that and I've seen changes under my eyes! It's only been a few weeks so I'm going to continue to use this product :)

                      The L'Oreal Eye Defense is designed to diminish dark circles. However, we cannot recommend to use caffeine to prevent dark circles. Please try our Visible Lift CC Eye Concealer after the cream to cover the dark circles, as well.
