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.

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 :/
Cookadee from MB
Product very thick & cannot be dotted under eyes. Therefore skin is being stretched.
Racyta from Ms
After using this the next day I had red dots on my eye lids. Not good for me. I had to discontinue.
Doesn't really do much
Kyla R. from Fayetteville N.C
So i have mixed feelings about this eye cream. So for 1 its very hard to pat into the skin so i find my self rubbing it then patting in. The next problem is it doesn't do what it says its supposed to do. I only bought the eye cream because i have developed dark circles since being in virtual learning. But this has not helped at all with my dark circles. The reason why i gave it 2 stars is becuase it does hydrate the under eye area but thats about all it does for me. But if it actually works for you good just didnt work for me. I will continue to use it but will not not rebuy.
Jess from Austin, TX
A friend who is finishing up aesthetician school told me this was a good, lower cost option for under eye cream. I like it, it seems to be working just like more expensive products. I'm always up for a good bargain!
Skip this one
Anna from Detroit, MI
While this is a thicker eye cream, it's too thick in my opinion and not creamy. I felt like I had to tug around my eye area too much to get the product worked in. Wish it was a bit more creamy.
Jo from Chicago
I've been using this product for 5 months consistently and I haven't seen any improvement in discoloration correction. It does slightly hydrate the eye area. Nothing wow! Won't buy this product again.
Best Cream Ever
Meme from Alabama
I've used this cream for years and its the best.
It works. Period
ItbanKowgirlsMom from Stillwater, Ok
This stuff is the real MVP. My husband is using it now, my 75 year old mother and I tell every friend. Cerave may not have fancy packaging or some amazing smell but it has working skin products. I'm about to switch to all their anti again stuff. My eye puffiness and dark circles have went down by prob 75% in two weeks. This is the real deal.
Great eye cream for the price
Lucy loves beauty from Brick, NJ
I use this in conjunction with my higher priced day/night moisturizers. It works great in terms of hydration and a little goes a long way. My eyes look rested and hydrated over time.
CA from Md
Been issuing it for a few weeks and see nothing for depuffing or helping wit dark circles. Just feels like a heavy moisturizer, might as well just use lotion.
I have used this product before and will keep using it.
Holly from PA
I love all the CeraVe products used them for over 10+ years
I've this eye cream!!
GG from Nashville, TN
I use this eye cream in my am & pm skincare routine. It makes my tired eyes look rejuvenated!! A must have!!
It didn't work for me.
Natalie from Tempe, AZ
I have used up this product and havent noticed any improvement in my eye issues.
Amazing value for the price!
Marin from PA
While it's true that this lacks the bells and whistles of fancier creams, this is a gentle, effective eye cream at a price you can't beat!
I love it
Fofo from Harrisonburg VA
I literally love it so much
I would buy this product again.
Alfalfa's girl from Gilbert, Az
I have been using this product for a couple of years. I have a genetic eye condition that makes the skin around my eyes very dry. This product has been outstanding in combating this problem.
I don't recommend for those with sensitive skin.
Strawberry Gurl from Mililani, Hawaii
I was recommended to use CeraVe skincare by my dermatologist. This is the only CeraVe product that has caused me to have an irritation. I only used this eye cream 3 times. It made the skin around my eye area red. My skin also burns. My skin has been very sensitive lately and I'm not sure why I had a reaction to this product since it's made for sensitive skin.
I would buy this product again and again
Rickeyc from Carriere, MS
I have used this cream for many years and it must be working as people say I don't look my age.(73).
It doesn't deliver what's in the description
JericksbrgKing from Massachusetts
I picked this up because of the claims and the price point and honestly I've seen zero difference. I have seen other products improve my dark circles so I know it's possible. But this just hasn't done anything. It doesn't really even moisturize that well. It's just ok. I have really dry skin overall so maybe if you're not as dry as I am this would work better but not for me, unfortunately. Overall I'm not that impressed. Which sucks because I really wanted this to work so I don't have to keep buying like $50 eye creams and gels to minimize the dark circles.
veronica from lakewood, ca
basically their moisturizing lotion in a small tube. moisturized well but saw no improvement in dark circles.
