How to Use
Rated 3.66 out of 5 stars
I sometimes have puffy eyes, and usually have some darkness (not too bad), and beginning wrinkles as I approach 40. Some products are too harsh or take too long to notice a difference. This is hydrating, soothing and helps reduce the fine lines, crows feet and even forehead lines. Over a week or two, the dark circles also lessen noticeably. I used to try others for a faster or better result and kept coming back to this. So, this is my permanent eye, forehead and lip treatment!
I intended to use this to treat fine lines (likely at least partially dehydration lines, given my dry climate), prevent aging, and help w/ tired eye puffiness/dark circles. This product does none of those things. In fact, it initially leaves my under eye area feeling tacky. As the product evaporates, my skin becomes dryer than pre-application. Concealer then only brings-out fine lines. Definitely don't see a difference in puffiness or dark circles either. Pointless purchase - actually threw it out. The only positive point I can state about this product is that it doesn't irritate my eyes.

I love, love The Body Shop's Vitamin E Toner. It makes my skin soooo soft. So I wanted to try their other Vitamin E products. Considering how The Body Shop touts itself as a Fair Trade, eco-friendly brand, I was shocked and extremely disappointed to see PARABENS in some of their Vitamin E products, including this eye cream. This is a hard NO for me.

I've been using this product morning and night for a week now. Let me tell you about the huge difference it has made. I suffer from terrible dark circles from allergies and sinuses issues. This takes the puffiness down and brightens the eye area. I was on the fence about this product but let me tell you it's life changing. I will be buying over and over

I received this product about two weeks ago now, and I love it! I was using the Roc eye retinol cream and developed a horrible dry itchy rash on my upper eye lids. I was looking for something less harsh, and this product is it. Although I have not seen reduction in my fine lines at this time (maybe with longer use I will,) the puffiness under my eyes has gone down and the rash on my upper eyelid from the Roc eye cream has went away. I would recommend this product for anyone who has sensitive skin like myself. The body shop has not let me down yet!

I struggle with (medium) dark circles under my eyes, they are not like black eyes but they are very dark and emphasize that my eyes are very much so embedded into my head, which makes me put on a ton of concealer.... well this product - I use a light amount day and night has really helped my problem more so than any other product before it. I bought it on sale during Black Friday but it's really worth the money and I'm only 1/3 through in February. So truly it's worth the money!!

I had never had any acne under my eye and it burned so bad! Will return to the store

A must have for elderly contact lenses wearers. I have tried many products and this is the only one that does not irritate my eyes nor does it leave residue on my contacts. Works well, moisturizes and firms eye area. It's ridiculously expensive but I'm addicted.

Natural Ingredients, for the sensitive area.

I picked this up at ulta store. I didn't know anything about it.

under my eye. I didn't even realize it until I thought. this is all I had been using.
that's why I got it that day. goimg back for this sale getting 2.

I was in awe after my first or second use. I noticed a lot less puffiness, and more awake looking skin around my eyes. But, by the third time, it started burning like heck*, horrible horrible burning, in addition to not doing too much. But, if you can avoid the burning, it's not a horrible budget daily eye moisturizer.

I was sick and my skin around my eyes got really dry. I was in dire need of an eye cream and wasn't gonna pay through the nose to get it being a college student. The first time I put it on I was in love! The next morning the skin around my eyes looked healthier and more nourished, and my dark circles and puffiness were gone. But as the day went on they got dry again. So I put it on again and it burned so badly!! I followed the instructions to a T about where to not put it and I made sure to avoid the area. But what kind of eye cream can't go near the eye? My skin is still so dry and cracked, but I can't use this product because of how bad it burns and how ineffective it is. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

I liked this eye cream, so I was disappointed to find that it had parabens in the ingredients. I had assumed that all body shop products would avoid parabens, as many of them do, so it was my mistake in not checking the ingredients more closely before purchasing. I will continue to use to finish it up but will not be repurchasing due to the ingredients.
As for the product itself, I like that it is lightweight. It is very moisturizing and soothing and it definitely helped with eye puffiness. I assume it helped with wrinkle prevention, since it is so moisturizing but it didn't minimize existing wrinkles or do anything for dark under eye circles (though I have yet to find an eye cream that actually delivers on that promise). It's good if you're a 20-something like me looking for a simple moisturizing eye cream. The price point is amazing for what you get. I would have repurchased it not for the disappointment in the ingredients.

I've been looking for a good drugstore eye cream and finally found it. The main thing I look for in an eye cream is fast absorption that doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy, this is definitely not greasy and sinks in fast! It's so soft and velvety And moisturizing. It hasn't helped dark circles a ton but I have noticed a slight difference. For the price it's good enough for me
Lily from Downey, CA
have been using this product for about a month and have not seen a difference at all. does nothing for my dark circles or puffiness, barely even moisturizes.
Samantha from Maple Grove, MN
I like how it wakes up my tired eyes, but it did burn a little. Some of the product got into my eyes and made them really red. I like the smell of the product and the effect it has, but I don't think it was gentle enough for me, despite the fact that my skin is not particularly sensitive...
Karls from Va
It takes a very little amount to cover your eye area. I also use it on my for head and where I see puffiness on my face. (I have sun sensitivities) and its very cooling and soft to the touch after application.
Andrea from TUCSON, AZ
I started using this product about 10 years ago and thought I should look for something to focus more on fine lines since I was now in my 30s. I have been on a hunt for a new product because I thought if I spent more I would get more high end ingredients to prevent fine lines....but I just end up missing this eye cream! I always come back to this simple product. I've tried every brand and promise out there to no avail because none deliver. They all either feel like my eye skin is overly dry or so greasy it makes my eyeliner and mascara run. This eye cream is perfectly hydrating but never greasy and feels super refreshing.

It made my eyes water so I took it back

This product was separated in its tube, the oil from the rest of the product. Yuck

Under my eyes... Where I have never had a problem with breakouts before.

I have been using Body Shop Products since its inception because of their mission statement to make the products from natural products and support indigenous people. I was so delighted when Body shop products came to Salt Lake City. I have used the Vitamin E. eye cream for many years and find it a very good product at a reasonable price.
Kdb from Texas
I like this product i havent had any issues with it. Soothes my skin and seems to be lifting the dark area under my eye as far as wrinkles so far i dont have many but my eyes look better.
Lemon from Rancho Cucamonga, Ca
I've been religiously applying this creme morning and night for about a week or so. I haven't noticed any difference. It glides on nice, not greasy at all like other under eye creme. One day I did wake up with some puffiness and after applying it, it helped a bit. I also apply right before I apply my concealer and it does moisturize a little and causes no creasing either. It's decent price to try out and see if it works out for you, but not a repurchase for me.
Libby from Wilsonville
I love it. It's hydrating.
Peaches from Dallas, TX
I have very sensitive eyes and unfortunately this product irritated and burned my eyes. The area around my eyes turned red and it made my eyes tear profusely. I had to return it.
NorthernCaliGirl from Arcata, CA
This doesn't get rid of bags or dark circles or anything like that but this does moisturize and it does a great job! I usually love most skin care products from the body shop, that I've tried.
