Most Helpful Positive Review Love this eye care product-AMAZING product
I have always taken very good care of my skin. I have spent probably thousands of dollars over the duration of my life time on different skin care products. Although finally at 52 I have found the skin care line that I am happy with it is very pricey. No one likes to spend $100.00 for 1 skin care product. So when I came across The Ordinary line I was super eager to try several of their products & so far I have loved them all in more ways than 1. I am a firm believer in a a few skin care products & a good eye care product is essential in order to retain a youthful look. From my experience the eyes, forehead, mouth & neck are the first to show signs of aging, other than the gray hair of course lol. I have been fortunate not to get a lot of gray YET lol. However my eye's look tired, puffy & have dark circles. So finding a good anti aging & over all good skin care line was essential for me. After years of spending thousands of dollars on different skin care products I was ESTATIC when The Ordinary hit the shelves. Every product I have purchased has done what it stated. As far as this product again it has done just as it states it will do, dark circles GONE, puffiness GONE, tired eyes-IMPROVING. I stayed tired chasing around my 9 years old child with ADHD so being tired comes with that lol . I just can not brag enough about this product & I hope Ulta continues carrying it because it is going to be my new go to- skin care line & I am certain anyone that try's it will feel the same. BRAVO to The Ordinary great work on your skin care line!! LOVE IT all!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Chemical burns around my eyes!!!
The ABSOLUTE worse product ever and I'll definitely be returning. Read the one and two star reviews (I wish I had). Not to only did it make the dark circles significantly darker but I also have chemical burns around my eyes after a few days of use once a day as another person mentioned. The skin is raw and so painful it's has me almost in tears. Since the area around my eyes is so swollen I'm having to hold an ice pack over my eyes, cannot wash my eye area and the skin is crepey and dry. This company puts very vague information on their products and minimal warnings to stop use and contact a doctor if burning or irritation occurs. I should have read more about the product and ingredients on the internet instead of just going by what's on their box. Save the $10 or whatever it costs. I would have never bought knowing I'd miss work and spend 20 times what I spent on the bottle at the doctors office.

I use a drop under each eye & on each eye lid. It does a great job of depuffing, but it emphasizes my wrinkles (65 years old). I like to use it alone at night, but top it with a moisturizing eye cream for daytime.
Took time but works! Fat Pads too
Ambrose1 from new York
I have had desk circles under my eyes since I was a teen. I even had an eye loft at 42 but I didn't know the dark circles were from fat pads under lashes. Twenty years someone said"look up" and there we're no circles!
Put a tiny amount chronic puffiness or fat every night and let dry. It took three months but the eye area is,flat!!! The only discoloration is normal and concealed works.
Because the area is small it is still half a bottle after 3-4 months. After I put eye cream as usual, patted on
Will purchase again.

I have always had very puffy eyes and have tried everything. After 1 week I can see a big difference. No burning to the skin and it absorbs fast.
Alexis from Ocala, Fl
I have a complicated relationship with this product. It's good for puffiness and helping me appear more awake (like I got 6 hours of sleep instead of the 4 or 5 hours I got). I tend to stop using it because it gunks up around the dropper and is not travel friendly for that reason. Another thing is I'll use this product for a while stop out of laziness and sometimes not notice unless I have a bad sleepless night. It's not bad to have in your rotation but it's also not needed
Some days I notice a difference, some I do not.
akyabreu from Georgia
This serum absorbs into the under eyes quickly, I apply it most days and along with "Buffet" in the morning and evening. I do not always notice an immediate difference, but I think it is harder for me to notice a difference because I am not as consistent with it as I am with "Buffet", and one of the HA serums.
Burning Sensation and Made Eyes Look Worse
MandyB from Jefferson City, MO
I had such high hopes. After my old caffeine infused eye gel was discontinued I searched for a replacement. After using this for about three weeks I had to stop. I do not have overly sensitive skin, but this started to burn. It also made my eyes look more tired and did not smooth the skin; if anything it made my skin worse in every way. Very disappointed in this considering the hype this brand has.
I would definitely buy over and over
Fingers from BG Kentucky
Ok so this little bottle is a miracle in a small bottle and it is amazing to say the least. I have baggage under my eyes plus the puffy pillows to go with them. I wasn't sure it this was going to do what I wanted it to do but I had to leave to go somewhere and I thought we'll it's now or never and I couldn't believe the results the pillows were gone darkness was lots better still a little luggage but not enough to talk about. I really couldn't believe the difference oh and the price was amazing too . Not all great products have to cost an arm and a leg to be great . This is definitely a must have
Wouldn't buy this again
jes058 from Debary, FL
I wish it worked but it did nothing; I'm so disappointed.
It works but with a catch
Sharon from Southern Illinois
This stuff absolutely works on the puffy bags under my eyes, but now I have wrinkles under my eyes? I'm not sure what's worse.
Rachael from New Jersey
This product I use every morning!! Or every night!! I love it because it actually works I would recommend this product the price is reasonable and Depuffs my eyes and dark circles vanished!
Did not see any improvement
Anna from North port FL
I've used the product for 2 weeks and unfortunately did not see any difference, no improvement what so ever. Maybe it just did not work for me.
Lou2 from Raleigh NC
Use for under eye bags/swelling, works great to decrease puffiness.
I do think it works
Turbo from MI
This bottle lasts a long time for undereyes. I do think it helped my undereyes to be smoother over time.
Ximena from Dallas, Texas
I apply under my eyes after washing my face in the morning. And again before bed every night.
Say by to your Puffy Eyebags :)))
Kelly from NY,NY
I used to have puffy and swollen eyes due to staying up doing homework and my sleep schedule. However, I put a small amount and generously massaged it on my puffiness. I did it a couple of times and I don't have ugly eyeballs. I applied an eye cream after and boom! I look alive lol :)))
Amazing, especially in the fridge!
Anna from Washington
I read online that this product was able to be refrigerated without affecting the quality, so I have been using it cold in the mornings. It's so relieving! My skin feels almost instantly rejuvenated. At first I wasn't sure about the product because the area under my eyes was pretty raw and I was afraid it would sting, but it was gentle and de-stressing, especially when applied cold. I use this combined with the First Aid Beauty hydrating under eye cream, and my face has never appeared so bright! I am going to have to make this a staple. I originally purchased because a student of mine asked me why I had under-eye bags if I'm in my 20s, lol. I would definitely say this product has helped the appearance of my under-eye area for sure.
Expected so much more
MUC from Metrowest, MA
Given that this is a pretty hefty caffeinated product I had really high hopes for it. However it did absolutely nothing for my puffy eye bags. Applied it directly to the area every morning hoping for some kind of reaction but nothing happened! Very disappointed.
lydia from florida
I don't know if the product itself is truly doing anything i just know my concealer doesn't look so dry under my eyes when i use a bit of this before hand
So far I really like this product
Erin the Natural Beauty from Montana
I was worried it was going to be oily just by the look of the product but I was delightfully surprised that it just short of melts into the skin and absorbs right away. I can't wait to try other products from this line.
Causes break outs
Nichole from CA
I have that type of skin where I always have dark circles under my eyes, so I was happy to try this product. I've used it maybe 6 separate times over a few months, and keep stopping because it kept cause a breakout in my delicate under eye area every single time I used it. By break put, ii mean, I'd develop a zit, and I am not prone to breaking out under normal circumstances. Id return this except I tossed the receipt. But its a bummer that it seems pore clogging.
Saw results in about a month
Paige from CA
I definitely saw a result. Sometimes I don't even wear concealer under my eyes.
Good formula, packaging is the issue
VR from Somewhere
The formula is great when I don't sleep well. I'm not a fan of the dropper style packaging because it actually gives you too much product so there's some waste. Very little is needed to go around the contour of your eyes. You get about double the amount.
My Must Have
Celia from Florida
This is one of my favorites of The Ordinary line. I have hooded eyes and used to wake up very puffy in the eye area. This is part of my a.m. and p.m. routine. What a tremendous difference, a wake up call on the eyes.
Didn't work for me!
Jhel from NV
I don't have sensitive skin but this one didn't work for me. After using this product for 3 days it made my under eyes so irritated, red and swollen. It made my under eyes more terrible.!!
Hopeful It works but it burns
AnjyRajy from Chicago, IL
I bought this as its always voted the best eye cream for puffiness but it burned my eyes for a good 5 mins but then it was fine.
