Most Helpful Positive Review Used since 18... now 57
I have used this product since I was 18 yrs old, daily. Never have less than 1 spare on hand. Best compliment @ 57... how come you don't have wrinkles by your eyes? Answer... used an eye cream since I was 18. Whatever moisturizer works for you, use it diligently is my advice. I happen to have used this for almost 40 years and time tesing results like... "How come you don't have wrinkles by your eyes?" or flat out "You don't even have wrinkles or dark circles to show your age" have convinced me it works. Love the lightness, coolness and how it blends so well with any eye makeup I have used and helps set it. ALSO, doesn't absorb THROUGH your eyelids to your eyes like other eye products may. I love this product. Just a quick dab on your finger for each eye and pat it gently under eye and lid (great eye massage - use your ring or center finger to pat it on)under makeup and when your makeup looks a bit dry, just use a Q-tip to add just a bit very lightly over your makeup. It sets it and adds a bit more moisturizer to even it out your makeup across your lid. I have not been disappointed by this product. L'Oreal, please KEEP this product in your line...
Most Helpful Critical Review Hydrates Eyes!
I have slight dark circles under my eyes so I thought I'd give this product a try after reading a few good reviews about it. To be honest, it does NOT get rid of dark circles. I don't think there really is a product out there that can eliminate dark circles anyway. However, it really moisturizes my eyes. This product comes in a small pot, but you don't even need to use a lot. A little will go a long way! I think this will last me for about 4 months or more...seriously. The other negative thing about this product is that the skin around the eyes can get kind of sticky due to too much moisture. So I highly suggest to not put so much. I'm not sure if there is a difference in how my eyes look after trying this but it definitely hydrates around your eyes.

I bought this when my go to eye cream was sold out during the shutdown. Had to use grape seed oil with this just to keep my eyes from stinging. Couldn't return it and couldn't wait to use it all up. Will not repurchase.
My favorite eye cream for my sensitive eyes.
Mmmm92 from Atlanta
I'm 28, I have been using anti aging skincare products since I was 20 to be proactive in preventing signs of aging of my skin. I haven't really been dedicated to an eye cream because most of them irritate my eyes and I wake up in the mornings to swollen eyelids and red irritated eyes. I've tried a few other drugstore eye creams that were double the price of this. This has been the best eye cream for me! I put it on in the am and pm and it does not irritate my eyes at all. I do not think this product is meant to significantly reduce bags, crows feet or severe dark circles. As the name says "Age Defense", I feel that it is more of preventive measure in helping to prevent aging around the eye. I have noticed a difference though. My eye area looks hydrated and fresh. It does have a slight shimmer to it but it's not sparkly. I would say that it just instantly helps to brighten the eye area. It's light feeling and it is a gel consistency. This is also a very affordable eye cream and I think it is fabulous. I will continue to purchase this over and over. I really love this eye cream.
Didn't notice much difference
Geo2smart from Southern Oregon
Didn't notice much difference. My eyes stayed just as puffy and I didn't feel that it really helped the dark circles either. I completely finished the little jar but would not buy again.
Not Worth It
Vidhi from White Marsh, MD
I'm disappointed in this product, mainly purchased for dark circles and de-puff eyes, but it didn't do anything. I found it quite drying as well because once I applied and let the product absorb, it left a white residue which means it didn't get absorbed into the skin as I hope. Don't waste your money, it's not worth it.
A staple for ageless beauty

Have been using it for years. Mild, yet effective on your skin

Unhappy12 from undisclosed
Used this product faithfully for 6 months for the dark circles. It didnt change a thing other than make my eyes look wrinkled when having makeup on. Would not recommend this product to anyone.
Not worth the money
Mscp from Athens, ga
I've been using this twice a day for 3 months with absolutely no change.
Brightens and reduces lines!
Hal from United States
This is my favorite eye cream! It really brightens my under eyes and reduces signs of fatigue!!
It really does work!
sexy goddess from Alaska
This product is great, I just wish it came in a bigger jar because I would buy quarts of it!! I use it every night and morning. It's been 3 weeks now and the difference is noticeable!! Like seriously just check out the before n after pics!! My friend says she needs to buy some because she saw the results! Truly an amazing product!
Best eye cream ever
Mk 1972 from Newport, RI
I've come back to this gel-based eye cream time and again and have been using it for many years. This is a lightweight hydrator so if you're looking for a miracle product for dark circles or deep wrinkles, look at the other products and don't blame this one because it's not made for that. This one is my favorite though because it doesn't have all those bells and whistles, just great hydration that is safe for my sensitive eyes. I can't say enough how perfect it is. It's cooling, soothing, hydrating, and gives my eye area a glow. I'm about to turn 48 and ppl don't believe I am over 40. Thanks L'Oreal!
tcm12 from Iowa
This has helped brighten my eyes so much in the last month! I didn't want to break the bank, reviews from dedicated customers sold me on it, and I actually feel like it's helped my bags using it every morning/night, and a little goes a long way!
Does not work
Abreanne from MI
This cream doesn't do anything it advertises, I've been using for 2 weeks and see no improvement with dark circles under my eyes.
H from New Jersey
Was burning underneath my eyes.
Pink and shimmery
Caligirl from Ca
During the covid-19 shut down, I unfortunately lost my job, so I was on a budget but needed an eye cream quick!!
This is not a cream more like and tinted pink gel with shimmer, It is not as pictured now I'm upset because i cant even return this junk! Yes I still tried it but saw no results and and still felt dry under my eyes, which is why I prefer cream and not gel
abby7896331 from Alabama
My under eye area gets really dry and was making my underlies look wrinkly, so I bought this hoping it would help with that. But it made my under eyes dry, red, puffy, and showed the wrinkles more. Now, it burns to put anything on it and I am treating with something different to help calm the irritation.
Miraculous Eye Cream
Lexy Luong from United States
* Pro: This is my third time ordering this eye cream, and man, I can testify that it truly works! Its my favorite, most affordable eye cream with results within one day. It truly helps with the puffiness, and I can see the dark circle under my eyes really diminish. The bottle may seem small to the buyer, but it will last you a long time. The cream has a shimmer effect to it, that makes you look all that brighter, without overdoing it. It has a gel-like consistency, very smooth.
* Con: Now, the only reason I took a star off. was because if you are like me and you have sensitive skin, this cream may sting a little for the first few times, so be careful, especially if you just exfoliated your skin.
* TidBits: When you apply the eye cream, just make sure you give it a minute or two for your undereye skin to absorb before you put any moisturizer and/or serum. You will see better results. Be patient with it, and try it for a week or two, and keep in mind, everybody's skin is different. Also, make sure you do apply it morning (for dark circle mainly) and night (to help reduce the puffiness under the eyes in the morning).

I never saw any great results during use. I used product until the product was gone with a consistent morning and night routine.
Maybe don't use if you're sensitive to caffeine
Paige from St. Louis
I got this and started using it in the am and pm. However, after using it for a few weeks, I noticed a twitch develop underneath one of my eyes. This twitch would only go away once I used the cream or drank some coffee. I've had a history of sensitivity to caffeine before (when it makes my hands shake or it makes me sick), so I suspect this cream was affecting me in that way. It never really did anything for dark circles but I felt moisturized.
Mary75 from Pittsburgh
I bought this about 2 weeks ago using it faithfully. I would look in the mirror to see if I see results with dark circles yes but it seems like it is drying out my under eyes and making wrinkles look more noticeable. I am really upset with this product thinking it would work or at least see an improvement instead of more noticeable wrinkles I had to put another cream on top it to make it look smooth
Ineffective on undereye puffiness
OKBookworm from Tulsa, OK
This product was purchased specifically to reduce undereye puffiness. After using the entire tiny jar, there was absolutely no improvement in my undereye puffiness, in fact, the moisturizing ingredient seemed to increase the puffiness. I called L'Oreal to report my experience & received only an "I'm sorry", no offer of a coupon to encourage purchase of additional L'Oreal products.
Saw quick results
Anna from Rialto ca
I've had an issue with my dark circles for quite awhile now and couldn't find something that worked with my skin. But after a few days of this I found no irritation and my eyes are plumper and smooth and saw huge improvement on my dark circles. It used to be all I could see when I looked in the mirror. Now I don't look sick and I'm so happy to see something come out of this.
VioletsLite from NorCall
Specifically I purchased this for its claim to reduce eye puffiness. No result after using for 3 weeks. This product did not do anything for my puffy eyes. Wasted money.
Iros from La Puente
I like that it is light not sticky and applies very nicely. It's like a gel, creamy, refreshing feeling to your eyes.
Lucky329 from La Habra, CA
I've been using Eye Defense for a few years and like it better than the higher priced eye creams. This one is gel based so it goes on smooth and feels light and cool. You can "feel" the moisture hours later. Give it a try.
