Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect for Dark Circles
This product is amazing and does exactly what it claims! Probably my favorite of all the CeraVe line.
Really the dark circle relief and puffiness relief in the morning is what impressed me, I've been using it only a week and a half, so I'm still waiting for the darker circles at my inner eye to fade with further use. Already the main portion of my dark circles have faded to invisibility.
I use this product everyday once in the Morning and once at Night. I spread it along the orbital bone as my dermatologist instructed (VERY IMPORTANT, and the cream will reach the rest of the undereye area from the orbital bone area, don't worry) which will prevent the bumps/breakouts some people report using this (bumps/breakouts comes from getting it in the eye/tear duct itself, though it's possible some reviewers were just allergic so always patch test!). I also use the cream on my top lid because I have some dark/brown discoloration there and it seems to be helping that fade as well.
It's disappeared most of my dark circles almost completely and I can tell the skin under my eye isn't so thin anymore--I get itchy eyes a lot so the skin around my eye has thinned out and this product has countered that and started to restore the healthiness to the skin around my eye.
The only warning about this product I'd give is that it can sometimes mildly burn if the skin around your eye is thin--the burning will go away once you use this for awhile as it thickens the skin around your eye. It also burns pretty bad if you get it in your eye, so pleaseplease avoid that! And again only apply under the eye by feeling around the orbital bone (that bone under your eye) to avoid getting it in your eye and causing irritation to the eye, or worse, in some peoples' case, breakouts and bumps.
The only other complaint I have is that I wish they gave you more cream for the price. It's still a fair price, though, considering how well it works. But I've recommended this to a friend and will continue to do so with everyone I know who struggles with eye discoloration, puffiness in the morning and/or thinness of the skin around the eye.
Most Helpful Critical Review Moisturizes but doesn't repair...
I used this product twice a day for a full month. To be fair, you should know I'm 41 and have that dreaded crepey under eye area. Here's my two cents:
I love that this cream comes in a tube because it makes the application very easy. The only con to this is that I have no idea how much product is still in there after a month's use. It still feels like there's quite a bit left, though.
The cream is a nice, thick formula and blends quickly and smoothly into the skin. I usually wait about 5 minutes for it to sink in before applying my makeup, and I have no problem with smudging.
Overall, it's a good product for the price. Considering the reputation of the brand and the fact that this cream contains hyaluronic acid, I was expecting better results. While it moisturizes well, it didn't deliver on repairing and restoring my under eye area.

It will moisture, however I thought would help with my dark circles and I have. It seem a difference. I have been using probably around a month. I will use till empty & probably look for another product. I didn't expect a huge change, however I don't notice a difference at all.
Wanted to like this

So this isn't terrible at all, but not for me. this brand is supposed to be good for eczema, but if i'm having a flare up on my eyes this makes it burn A LOT. this would probably be good for normal skin types in my opinion.
Great eye cream
bevp61 from AZ
This brand was recommended by my dermatologist. I've used the body cream for a few years and was happy to discover the eye cream. Very affordable and great for your skin and eyes.
jess from AL
Normally cervae is a safe brand to use and I don't get adverse reactions but this caused breakouts each morning. I applied at night and it isn't a greasy product just not a fit for my skin
Brenna from Huntington Beach
Purchased this because I have a lot of fine lines under my eyes and thought this would help my concealer sit better on my skin. To be honest, it's not a necessary product. You can simply pull your regular moisturizer up toward your eyes to hydrate the skin around them and get the same benefits.
Kc from Nevada
It's hydrating, but that's about it. It doesn't seem to help with dark circles for me. I'm going to try something else.
nono from VA
Honestly I've been using it for 3 months and it's didn't do anything, not even in the slightest. Around my eyes I kinda dark but not too much but it still bothered me so I got this and it simply doesn't work.
I will buy this product again
None from Monroe, LA
I use this product under my eyes and on the outside corners of my eyes. It is non-greasy and easy to apply. It keeps down the fine lines and puffiness.
vintagebeauty from KY
Bare basics eye cream. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lenses. Caused milia that I previously have never had. For a few more dollars just get the Mad Hippie eye cream.
Great for all, really great for us w/acne
lillianGR from WA
A mature+dry skintype friend gave this to me(25, dehydrated oily+large pores) so we could try it together & compare.1st use burned my v.tender undereyes so I shelved it. Gave it another go months later... has been my main eye cream since. I don't get puffiness, but it's 1st thing ever to make noticeable dents on dark circle issues, not lines tho. Undereye sensitivity greatly reduced, havent had a single tiny hard bump since, never clogs surrounding pores. Most days I layer a thicker product on top as it's my only spot w/ dryness+flaking. But if I'm extra oily or problematic, this is plenty.
HIGHLY reccomend for brightening, repairing underye's moisture barrier/sensitivity+tenderness, & finicky skins.
i would buy again

love it. works great.
Candice from Boca Raton
I have been to several dermatologists and have had many problems with Rosacea. I love this eye cream. It is inexpensive yet it does not feel that way. It's not greasy and does what it says it would.
I love this!
Jordyn from PA
I love this product it is my new favorite! I noticed a difference after the first week of using it. It literally makes my under eyes not puffy and it took some of the darkness away. I will be buying a new one soon. Definitley recommend. You have to use it everyday morning and night to notice the results!
Missy from Florida
It goes on well, and absorbs nicely. My eyes are very sensitive, and this doesn't irritate me at all.
Sophi from Arlington va
This is my second bottle I loved it my eye are is so soft clear and bright 😘
Jenn from California
I've used all cerave products from face wash, night cream, sunscreen moisturizer, so I ordered this hoping it'll help with my under eyes and it caused me a irritation. It caused an irritation now my under eyes are flared up and red. I have oily combo sensitive skin. Definitely did not work for me. Now I'm questioning whether their products have gave me red flared up face spots in the past.

Been using for almost 2 months and haven't noticed anything .mainly wanted for puffy eye and no change . It is moisturizing that's about it
Best eye cream so far!

Perfect for what I needed!
Molliele from Denver co
A little goes a long way but it's very hydrating and is great for the price
burned my undereyes :(
onima from New York
i used this for three days straight, morning and night, and all it did was leave a weird film on my under eyes and it was burning so bad. it also left dry patches in my under eyes and theyre not going away :(
Makes eyes tear up and not hydrating
Madeleine from Texas
I wanted tl love this, and used it twice a day for a few weeks, but I noticed my eyes watering pretty strongly before going to sleep, and even at random times throughout the day.
I also did not see an improvement with fine lines, wrinkles, or dark circles.
I can't really speak on the de-puffing effect, given my eyes aren't too puffy anyways.
Didn't work for me
Shani from DC
Whew, child!!! This eye cream dried my undereye area and eyelids. I put it on in the evening and woke up to crepe-like undereyes. I nearly passed out when I saw myself in the mirror. I was hoping this would work because I like the consistency and the price. Hopefully this works for others but I'm not the one.
Don't buy if you've got sensitive skin
Kate from Salt Lake City, IT
Bought this due to experiencing dry eyelids and under eye skin. Was fine for a day or two then had a pretty bad allergic reaction. Intense burning sensation and red irritation. Super disappointed since I love this brand of skincare.
Best eye cream!
Love love love! from Anaheim
I love this cream! I have spent 30-50+ on eye cream and I this product for me has worked just as good if not better! It feels very light weight and almost as it brightens a bit and my under eye looks more awake and moisturized I definitely recommend this!
Not for sensitive eyes
Juju from SD
I had to stop using it before half bottle use because I was always tearing up a lot before bed and didn't see anything different :/
