Most Helpful Positive Review It brightens! And tightens!
Since I've fallen in love with all the moisture surge products I just had to go to my Clinique store to check this eye gel out, I'm delighted to say wow! Thanks to the store manager she taught me how to place the pea size amount on my finger, and gently rub the product to "break the capsules" required to get the eye gel to work with the full effects, this is important, I tried it anf fell in love with it, I purchased and started using it immediately and my eyes were brighter, you can feel it working like a gentle tightening, and my favorite part, it is totally non irritating, I gently put under my eyes near the corners, and a bit on the lids, the next morning I felt my skin around my eyes and the moistureizing effect is huge! I still use my Clinique All About Eyes for puffiness and use this a couple times a week as it lasts so long on your skin, even after that morning face wash they are still hydrated, one pump gives that pea sized amount so the product goes a long way, and will last a long time. The texture of this eye gel is unbelievable it's so silky and yet you almost feel the aloe butter working around your eye area. I would recommend for everyone especially for women who don't sleep well, (like myself) and for anyone looking to brighten the eye area especially under eye makeup it truly is the only eye gel I've actually felt and see it working! Thank you Clinique for an excellent product and another favorite moisture surge product, nothing compares!😍😊
Most Helpful Critical Review The product is okay
I really wanted to like this eye product. I am nearing the end of my second pump container so I feel like I have given it more than enough time to write an accurate review. The gel itself is ok. If you use too much it gets very sticky and you will be waiting AWHILE before you can apply eye makeup. I use it every morning and every evening and I feel like it does a good job moisturizing my skin without irritating my eyes. That being said, this stuff is being marketed in the wrong container. The beads get stuck in the pump and then a TON squirts out at once. Well then I'm left wasting a lot of expensive product or rubbing it all on in a ridiculous attempt to not waste (it's still wasted, your eyes can not absorb that much, trust me). So while it does moisturize and you should only use a pea sized amount, good luck getting your money's worth. It will get stuck in the pump.

I wanted to love this product because I love the moisture surge gel and eye cream. I initially got this to layer under the cream for extra hydration but after about 5 days of using AM and PM the skin around my eyes got red and started burning. My eye lid even started peeling and I couldn't put foundation or concealer on without it stinging to the point that I had tears streaming down my face. That said I can't use any Clinique mascara because it burns my eyes, so I would avoid this if you have the same problem.

I use this in the morning and at night. I can't believe how quickly it works! Visible results in a week! My under eye area was smoother and younger looking! It is incredible!
My holy grail eye product!
ABCK from Tennessee
I am 37 years old with horrible allergies. You name it and it makes my eyes swell. I developed a mild sensitivity to gluten about a year ago. For whatever reason this made my skin around my eyes super dark and sometimes they would even peel. This product has taken away 100% of the darkness and 90% of the wrinkles that had formed! I cannot say enough good things about it. I also love the all about eyes... really helps to stop the peeling. Clinique just makes the best eye products, hands down. I really thought there was no hope for my wrinkles and darkness before trying this. The all about eyes would take away 75% of the darkness, but wasn't doing much for wrinkles (I'm not sure it claims to though). I will buy this for the rest of my life! I love it so much, I bought my mom and sister some as gifts after only using it 3 days on myself. Greatest product ever!
eyes are mirror of the soul!

I followed all directions when applying this product, including popping the little spheres, and it gave me and eye infection. I was on meds for 4 weeks.

Pros and Cons
Dani from CT
I've been using this product for some time now and I do enjoy using it , I have very bad under eyes and I've seen a difference, a few cons to this product is 1- there is a sticky residue 2- I havnt been able to wear it with makeup because of the sticking 3- be careful when pumping the product it's not a consistent amount that comes out. Other than that I do really enjoy using it , I put it on to start my day and at night and havnt felt any irritation at all and have seen a difference.
Latte from Ca
I bought this because I watched an influencer use it before applying makeup. It's supposed to make your undereye area look like a "filter." Anyways I really love this product!! It goes well with makeup BUT I do recommend waiting for it to fully dry down before applying any foundation, concealer, powder etc. Sometimes I do use this alone and I like to pair it with the Clinique eye puffer roller. It works well alone and you can definitely feel the difference and also my under eyes are a lot brighter. I recommend this!
Kinda yukky to apply
Jujubean122 from Virginia
I don't love this product. The pump is inconsistent in the amount of product it dispenses per button push, and gets goopy and messy after just a few uses.
The thing I dislike most though is the product goes on sticky. Like SUPER sticky. Like my eyelashes stick to my undereye area for several minutes after applying.
Obviously not so much that I can't blink, but it's quite uncomfortable.
That being said the sticky does go away after the product dries/is absorbed, but I don't understand why anyone would choose this over a cream that feels good from the start.
Won't purchase again, however I will use up what I have.

I received a sample and ended up ordering the double pack on sale. This is a little sticky at first but it dries and feels so smooth and hydrating around my eyes. Plumps up those little crows feet that are starting to appear. It doesn't feel heavy once it has dried, just silky and plump.
Great for everyday use
Sgh from Wilmington, De
Keeps moisture in for the whole day. Give nice velvety feeling. Will recommend for everyday use to keep moisture around eyes
Not for sensitive skin
JennyB from New Hampshire
I've been using Clinique's face wash and dramatically different moisturizer for some time and love them. I reapply the moisturizer a few times a day and thought if I tried the moisture surge it would be a one and done application, however my face became itchy, red, and rough to the touch. This product is not for sensitive skin!
Hydrates and tightens delicate eye area
PMSunchaser from Newark, DE
This moisture packing serum really does tighten and brighten the eye area, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Only apply a small amount twice a day (can build up with other products as well) to see results. Immediately hydrates and de-puffs delicate skin and fills in crows feet. Gradually reduces and corrects wrinkles and sun damage. As with any product, results are contingent upon usage. For best results, use daily and within one month you'll see a noticeable change. Great addition to any skin care regime, especially for first signs of aging and damage.
Lili from NY
This product is very good, I will buy it back again.
For tired people
Sarah from Sacramento
I am a nursing student and a dialysis tech. I work 12 hours and go directly from work to school. I have 22 hour days and get roughly 5 hours of sleep if I'm lucky. I begged my dermatologist for some guidance and she just said sleep and water. Well, that isn't going to happen any time soon. I had dark circles and super puffy eyes. I had been using all about eyes and that wasn't enough. I tried so many other products from other brands and nothing worked. I didn't want to try this because I have oily acne prone skin, hence why I see a dermatologist. I had received a sample of this and decided it couldn't hurt. Best decision I had ever made. I bought a bottle and kept replacing it. When I saw my dermatologist again she said I was looking much more rested this time, 3 months later. Lately with finals and big exams my sleep has reminisced to roughly 3 hours. I told this to her and told her what I was using. She said it isn't going to hurt and if it works keep using it. So I am. People are telling me I look relaxed and awake. I fooled them all with this because I am not awake, relaxed or rested. Lol anyways. If your desperate, try this. Also, I see people complaining about none of the beads coming out. I don't know what they are doing but I always see them come out, but they pop on the way out and kinda start dissolving quickly. Maybe that's why you aren't seeing the little balls? I don't know.
good eye concentrate for young skin
jane from Illinois
Received a free sample and could not see some visible effect, but it really hydrated my eye area.Maybe it prefers the younger skin.
I would buy this product over and over again!
Rosie from Medford, N.J.
I use it every day, mostly at night!
Daph from Boston
hydration just use green bean size morning and evening but no significant function on dark circle and wrinkle. Good for young and dry skin.
Akelly747 from Indianapolis, I
I'm still an amateur when it comes to makeup and skincare but I bought this cream when a store employee at ulta said an under eye cream should be used with under eye concealer. I was hoping it had an instant lift type of effect (help dark circles) but I notice nothing at all. And it takes FOREVER to dry so if you try applying your makeup toO soon, it sticks, creases and smears.
I love this product!!
Brutus214 from Columbiana, OH
I bought this product two months ago. I don't think I will ever go with out it. I apply it every morning under my eyes and most of the lines just disappear. I decided to try it around my mouth and most of those lines disappear as well
Sticky and Dry
Mona from Portland, OR.
Immediately after using this my son felt completely sucked of the moisture it originally had and the texture itself was very sticky
Not what I expected
NalKP from Florida
I bought this as a birthday gift for myself. I thought it provided adequate hydration but it did not do wonders. It's no better than hydrating jelly which I used around my eyes before I bought this.
Toka from Delaware
I use it in my AM routine as it sits nicely under eye makeup.Difference I've noticed is a plumper andhydrated under eye area.It's brigtened a bit.I reccomend it.
