Reviewers said: "This eye cream is awesome! It's a lovely rich pale yellow cream that is super hydrating and soothing. It's a bit thicker than some other eye products I've used, which is really good because that helps the cream to stay put instead of creeping into my eyes like a lot of other eye products do. I can see that it has brightened my under eye area and I don't get any lines when I smile or squint."
