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.

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.

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.
Overall good product
Vee from Salem Oregon
There's nothing much to it, it's a basic staple. Keeps the eye hydrated but doesn't do anything else. No luxurious feeling or anything fancy. Don't expect too much but overall good and I would buy again!
Does a decent job of moisturizing but that's it
Alicia from South Carolina
The price point is fantastic and it is decent As a moisturizer. I didn't notice a whole lot more than that.
Non-irritating and moisturizing
Rocky from Michigan
I read that quite a few people experience redness and irritation with this product, so I'm wondering if retinol would work better for them. I experience redness and irritation with products containing retinol, so I'm thankful to have hyaluronic acid (i.e. this cream) to combat wrinkles and provide moisture. I wear contacts and have sensitive skin and so far, so good. I've used this cream for a few days now at night and I wake up with moisturized eyes in the morning. Still waiting to see what it can do for my dark circles and wrinkles, but moisture is the first step!
Eye Repair Cream
Delta from Texas
I get eczema and skin irritation on my eyelids, and I needed a cream that was hydrating but didn't have any other active ingredients. I saw this recommended for a purely moisturizing eye cream and I'm glad I bought it! It helps to keep eczema away and if my skin does get irritated, it heals quickly due to this cream. I apply it almost every day, on my eyelids and under my eyes. I use a small amount, and apply it once in the morning. It's unscented, lightweight, and absorbs quickly. Eye makeup does crease and fade more quickly but if I use primer, then there is no noticeable difference in how long makeup lasts. I haven't noticed this cream help with puffiness. I'd recommend this only if you need a simple, moisturizing cream.
Okay, Nothing Special
Starfishie from Melbourne, FL
It's an okay eye cream, but I have sensitive eyes. And it was a little irritating. Otherwise, no complaints.
DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT
kay from hartford, connecticut
me my mom and my friend tried this and it BURNED our eyelids and under eye. like my skin was RAW and i couldn't even wash my face because it hurt so bad and it made my eyelids and under eye bright pink. i would NOT buy this it literally is the worst thing i've ever used in my life.
Sharon from Denver
I use much oh the CeraVe line and figured the eye repair cream was a no-brainer. I have been using it 2 times a day for a few weeks-the skin is peeling off my uppers and red and irritated on the lowers. Much better when I was not using anything!
JH from Dallas,TX
Been using this for a month now and I really haven't seen a difference. I'm looking for something to help with my dark circles and puffiness under my eyes. This product has helped make the area under my eyes a little brighter but that's about it.

DON'T BUY. SUPER IRRITATING. MADE FINE LINES WORSE. VERY DRYING. MADE NO DIFFERENCE. THAT'S ALL I GOTTA SAY!!!
