Most Helpful Positive Review This works OVER your makeup, not under
I've read the mixed reviews but the problem is that people are putting make up over it and that dissolves the firming gel. Apply foundation as normal. Hopefully you're not using an "oily formula" which is drying. This will not apply nicely. Your foundation needs to be soft and manageable. I use Loreal Lumi and Visible Lift in combination. I find this product works well with them. You can add a bit of hypo-allergenic moisturizer, dab a very small amount and apply a little more foundation(you don't need to use a light colored concealer, this will lighten under the eyes too). After you're done with your foundation on your entire face, put a small dab on your finger smoothing it out it out staying under the eyes the best you can. After it sits for a few minutes it will tighten and thats it. Don't try rubbing your eye any longer. You cannot touch this up. You really only get one chance. I will tell you that this went on better during the spring and summer. I'm finding that that being in the indoor heating will dry your skin and the only way around that is to concentrate on moisturizing regimen. This stuff WORKS. But I really cannot believe the directions say to put it UNDER your makeup! Unreal. Careful applying hair spray because if one drop hits your under eye area or wherever you put it, the droplet will dissolve the gel. Nothing lifts your skin like this product except for an eye lift surgery. When you put your blush on you may find it reveals the gel. Just take your cleaned off blush brush ( a puffy one), squeeze it tight and 'buff' off the noticeable edge. This product is about as good as it gets. Similar results can be found w/egg whites! But egg whites crack! Put this product OVER your makeup and you'll like it much better.
Most Helpful Critical Review It worked.... But .....
I was so excited to get this product. However, the magic undoes itself if you add anything on top of it. Moisturizer, eye cream, foundation, concealer, it brings the puffiness all back. I gave it 3 stars because it DOES work... But ... I wear makeup so its its not for a girl who loves her coverup. Bummer :( I've been playing with it and reading reviews and this is a common complaint. I do have the amount down to wear it won't leave the white residue, but it's just not powerful enough to withstand anything over it. I will be returning it. So if your a gal with bags, and don't wear foundation... This is definitely for you! Otherwise, don't waste your money.

I have tried this product twice now. I even followed all the application tips and it still leaves a crusty white residue under my eyes. I will be returning this.
Not it! from Mobile
I've tried this now 3 different times the last few days and everytime it just makes my eyes look worse and peels around my eyes.
I have been using for a few years

I have been using for about 4 years, there are rules to follow which took awhile, trial and errors. You can mix with a eye cream and use that way but to get the maximum results make sure it is the last thing you put on under your eyes. It takes very little or else it will flake. you will feel a tightness but I am assuming this is the effect you want. It lasts all day for me and I have no bags under my eyes. I will continue to use it. I am 64 years old and have a twice daily skin regimen. Moisturize, foundation, finishing powder, finishing spray, eye makeup then the eye creme very last. It works for me.

I wanted to like this product, but it left a burn under my eye on the first use. I thought perhaps I just used too much. I tried again a month later and it still irrated (not as bad) the skin under the eyes. It does not provide as much tightening as other products used.
Too many layers of flakes

Not worth it
Belizabub from Sharpsburg, GA
This is a great addition to your morning routine if you experience underage puffiness or bags. It almost instantly firms up the under eye area. It doesn't really "correct" them, but gives a great boost for those of us with genetic puffiness that's not going anywhere. I highly recommend!
I will buy this product again
Moi from Colorado Springs
I apply a small amount with a small soft brush
would possibly purchase again
Kat from Minneapolis MN
Use for special occasions or when you are tired and puffy, before purchase learn hands on from a professional.
This works just like it says. Love it!

I am 50 and have started having droopy eyelids. This does tighten and lift them. It works best on a clean face. Let dry and add any makeup on top of it. I can feel and see it work.
Meg from New Jersey
This is an absolute MIRACLE. I just turned 40 and have very pronounced hereditary under-eye bags and I cannot tell you how life-changing this product is for me. I have not looked like this since I was 21.
This product really does eliminate my undereye bags by about 95%. And mine are really bad.
I apply moisturizer and eye make up, then use a make-up removing wipe to clean my undereye area. Once dry I shake well (v. important!) and apply the product with a small square paintbrush in a V-shape under my eye and feather out the edges. I also put a swipe or two under and over the outside of my brows to life my upper eyelid a bit. It goes on smoothly, is not sticky, but for me, it burns momentarily. No redness or swelling, just strong tingling for a few seconds. Then I go make coffee and wait for it to set. After 5-7 min I can usually tell if I need a little more or if I missed a spot because of how tight it feels. You can feel it tightening and it feels tight all day long-- a good indicator of if it's still holding. Once totally dry I take a makeup brush and carefully dust over any dark circles with mineral powder. The product also is a bit shiny- almost like a dried egg white. But it's not that bad and powder helps. You can definitely feel a bit of the residue if you touch it, but also not bad, and I haven't had a problem with the 'white residue' that some people complain about. When I smile I still do have a few wrinkles under my eyes but they are so minute compared to my normal condition that I am 100% ok with them. There is some conflicting info about if you can put makeup over/under the product. In my experience anything wet breaks down the product. I only dare to put mineral powder on top. This also means no moisturizer underneath so I double down on my nightly undereye moisturizer. / treatment. A winning combo is the Peter Thomas Roth 24k Gold undereye patches (I wear them overnight) and then this. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I will buy again
Pam from Sacramento
This stuff works pretty good. I wish I had no wrinkles but this get the job done.
Totally got rid of the under eye bags!!

Would not buy again.

It does tighten the skin but it leaves a white residue.
Filler in a bottle
KM from LA
This stuff is amazing when used correctly. What works for me is I use a gripping primer and then putting foundation/concealer first. Then I dab a very small amount with my ring finger lightly on top. Set it by using the all nighter powder by dabbing with my ring finger. It doesn't budge the whole day and no white cast. Just leaves my under eyes so smooth and brightened like I'm 10 years younger. It certainly is a confidence booster and I love it. Hope this helps!
Waste of money
Aunt B from North Carolina
I tried this multiple times. Seemed to last about 20 minutes....not even long enough to get through a Zoom meeting. I shudder to think what would have happened if I had waited to use it the day of my event. As the under eye firmness slowly wore off in front of the camera my Zoom group would have thought that they were watching Twilight Zone .... as I aged before their very eyes. 😳😱 when put on with a brush as directed the "light" coat did not hold up. The heavier did but turned white and crispy looking. Not for me. I'll be returning it.
I would most definitely buy this product again it's amazing
Bell from DesMoines
I use this product around my eyes my chin and where my mouth goes up when I smile it really decreases look at the lines from a gene because I am 64 and it made me look at least 10 years younger absolutely love it
Love love love
Cjorgey from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
I love how it tightens the skin around my eyes and smooths out the wrinkles! Wish it lasted all day!
Yes it's my most important piece of make up,
Ally Cat from Newport beach California
I use it under my eyes....... it makes me look 10 years younger. I use it every day, it lasts all day long !!!
The only drawback is many times it gets the white residue that I have to carefully try to take off with a Q-tip, without taking too much off. If you take too much off you have to start all over again !
Just takes a lot of practice with your own little tricks how to get it just right !
Be Patient with it and you will love it !!!
Would nit recommend
Christini from Riverside California
This product does not do what it says I see no change in skin texture what so ever. If you use too much you will get a white film on your face. Very disappointed
It's my go to now.
Mrs. Clean from Myrtle Beach, SC
I've tried several products that said they reduced puffiness around the eyes. A few did nothing and one did just slightly. FirmX is by far my new go to ..
.The best Firming EYE, EVER!!!
Billie from Sacramento CA
I use this product daily for the tight/firm look, that stays all day.
Dull And Terrible With Makeup!!
Tina from Massachusetts
Product definitely smooths out bag and fine lines but unfortunately to a dull matte finish which looks unnatural with the rest of my face and then if you try to use concealer or any kind of makeup with it it's just terrible! I tried using this product 3 different ways, concealer on top of it , underneath it and then mixing the 2 together, just doesn't work well if you are a makeup user!
Miss Mary from Central Texas
I really REALLY tried with this dude. It really works for a YouTuber i love, so I saved my coins and treated myself. Oh boy. For me, you can gather up all the negative reviews below and just know that I agree. I couldn't get it to work as directed by the company, by others suggestions (even my YouTube lady's advice!) nope! Hate to return anything ever, but I'm afraid this little tube is going back! Two stars because it technically did tighten up my little eye bag (on one side😂 for some reason) but I couldn't use any other product with it making it unusable.
I would buy this product again
Marie from Richmond KY
It really tightened my skin
This worked wonderfully for me!

I have tried numerous things to get rid of my old lady bags and wrinkles. I'm in my early forties but my eye area made me look older. I am genuinely amazed and overjoyed! I feel so much better about myself now. Thank you so much!!
