Rated 4.58 out of 5 stars
I'll start by saying I'm in my mid-forties and I'm always on the lookout for a good eye cream. The Smart Clinical Repair Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream from Clinique is off to a really good start. I received a sample free from BzzAgent in exchange for my honest review and honestly I'm really enjoying this product and its results.
You only need a small amount of this cream and I only used it at night. It's very emollient and creamy but also absorbs quite quickly. It's pretty lightweight for such a dense cream. It doesn't leave any residue or sticky feeling on the skin and my under eyes feel lovely in the morning. I've only been using this product for about a week but I'm seeing some wonderful, and immediate, results already.
It does seem to be helping with finer lines and my under eye bags and darkness are starting to fade a bit, a definite, visible Improvement. Dare I say it's even brightened up my skin a little. I have such dull skin under my eyes, kinda like a corpse, with quite a bit of discoloration as well as a couple of veins. It's very moisturizing and it visibly hydrates and plumps my skin.
I don't know if this eye cream is fragrance-free but it doesn't smell like anything to me. It has no discernible scent that I can tell. It's non-irritating and it doesn't bother my sensitive eyes at all. I do use it under my eyes as well as around my eye socket and orbital bone.
It's made with some crazy peptide complex, a bunch of nourishing butters and extracts, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid of course, and a little bit of, what I do believe, is either a slight bit of Witchcraft or Voodoo. All I know is It's Magic and it seems to be a little powerhouse of an eye cream.
I also apply it to the lines around my lips and mouth where I feel it's also making a difference.
My only critique of the product is that I cannot wear it under my makeup. It does, and will pill. It's quite frustrating because I'm loving this eye cream. I wish I could use it as part of my morning skincare but so far I haven't been able to get it to play nice. This doesn't seem like a common issue and I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong in my routine. I'll be glad when I figure it out though because I'm looking forward to using this product twice a day. I'm so grateful I got to try this stuff. I do intend on purchasing and I highly recommend this eye cream. Even if you don't have maturing skin, this is such a comfortable eye cream I think anyone of any age will enjoy it!
I'm usually a fan of Clinique, it's part of my daily facial routine. I was happy to of been chosen for the buzz campaign for sampling the Clinique Smart Clinical RepairTM Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream. The packaging that the wrinkle correct and a cream came in was very nice and well packaged, the cream itself look to be creamy and soft, but felt much different on my skin. When I put the cream on my skin it felt very sticky to me and I feel like it never fully absorbed well into my skin. Clinique is usually a great product for people with sensitive skin, but I Felt that Clinique Smart Clinical RepairTM Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream Caused more of an irritation under my eyes rather than any kind of repair. I did give Clinique Smart Clinical RepairTM Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream a fair shot, but after two weeks of feeling like my skin felt heavy where I apply the cream and sticky I threw in the towel. The only thing that I noticed after two weeks is that the skin under my eyes where I applied Clinique Smart Clinical RepairTM Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream looked to be more irritated than corrected in anyway. I am still going to stay loyal to the clinic brand, but unfortunately the Clinique Smart Clinical RepairTM Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream was not a winner in my book and I do not recommend people to buy.

The first time I used this eye cream it tingled but now it doesn't. It has only been a few days since I started using this cream but I am not noticing any improvement so far. I will continue to use this but I'm not sure I will buy this again.

The product is fine. I usually use Bare Minerals but the store was out. Comparable products but this one does cost a little more.
Does not irritate my contacts

I purchased this a month ago. Started using the next morning and only apply once a day - I am 56 and my eye lids had a crease just where you would put on eye liner - after 1 month of using this the crease is gone and my eye lids look tighter and the fine lines are not as deep. this is so worth the price and yes would buy it over and over a little does go a long way

Disappointed. I have used Clinique products for 20+ years and this is the first product that I had a reaction to. It made my eyes swollen and puffy with a rash. I used previous Repair wear and I am disappointed that it has been replaced by this. Just looking for a product with caffeine and vitamin C. This is Not good for sensitive skin!

This is one product you can visibly see working. I do not go a day without it!! Not only does the skin on and around my eye feel moisturizer but you can see the wrinkles disappear.

I got this as a sample. As Clinique has either stopped making the eye cream I love or it is not available on the website, I decided to order based on reviews. In the meanwhile I tried the sample and my eyes puffed up and I got a rash. I will be calling to stop the back order of this product. Very disappointed and I rarely am with Clinique. Bring back the old version with the pump. It works.

I love the ice cream I see noticeable improvement after just a few uses.
jst50 from Phoenix AZ
I love this eye cream. It is a creamier texture than others I have used. Not too thick but still has enough texture that it feels like it is doing it's job. It keeps my eye area hydrated.
Ari from Florida
Smooths and lifts. I have been a loyal Clinique customer for many years, and this is my favorite eye cream so far. I have some under eye hollows and this helps tremendously.
MAD from New York
I was advised that this product replaced the custom eye repair serum that worked well for me. This is OK, but takes a while to work on wrinkles and does nothing else. I've been using Clinique products for nearly 40 years, and have seen a change in them. I had an allergic reaction to this one; therefore a waste of money. Eminence and Naturapathica - both organic, have a better eye product on the market at present.

I have used Clinique products forever and have never been a fan of their eye creams…I'm still not. The new smart eye cream is just okay. It's more moisturizing than any of the other eye creams (dryness is a bigger issue for me than wrinkles), and a tiny bit does go a long way but it takes much too long to absorb. I can't even keep waterproof mascara from slipping when I use this product. I need to touch up around my eyes several times a day. Sadly another new smart line disappointment. I will not repurchase.
Lil from Cherry Hill, NJ
This eye cream is one that I really like. I use it dayly and have noticed fewer wrinkles and overall fresh skin underneath my eyes.
lili from Portland
After more than a month's use, I feel that the fine lines and dry lines at present have improved a lot, and the skin around my eyes has become tough and not easy to dry and itch.
Peggie06 from Maryland
I've used Clinique products forever and never had a bad reaction until I tried this eye cream. The cream caused unbelievable itching and soreness especially of my lid. The itching was so intense and I rubbed my eyes until the skin was red and swollen. Thankfully I was able to return for a refund but be careful if you try this.
Princess from Bristol
The Clinique smart under eye repair cream is very good and moisturizing for dry skin. I use it at night and it has made the lines sort of diminish.
Elena from Helena, Montana
Very happy with this cream.
jdinroch from Rochester NY
I've used this all over my eyes. Very moisturizing, no irritation. Love all Clinique eye creams!
NikkiG from Los Angeles
I really like this. I was surprised how it's helped with my fine lines and dark circles. I use the All About Eyes. I use this cream at night and I've been using in the colder months since it's very moisturizing and doesn't make it greasy either. I would recommend this product.
Ann from La Grange, Texas
Used product only a few days. Too soon to tell if it it making a difference.
KK from KCMO
The product is thick & rich and spreads easily and glides across the skin without leaving a greasy feeling imo. I have very oily skin and feel like the cream gets absorbed without that feeling of suffocating/weighing on the surface. There is no scent & I've not experienced any negative reactions with it. I pair this with Clinique's Acne Solution Acne + Line Correcting Serum & their Smart Night Custom Repair face moisturizer and the products all work beautifully together.
JR from Idaho
Both my mother (60s) and I (30s) love this eye cream. I use it at night and wake up with refreshed eyes.
