Just went through my first tub of this eye cream. Since it was my first go, I purchased the smaller tub. This eye cream is heavy and hydrating. Does not do too much for black circles, - so if that is your major issue I would suggest something else - but I definitely noticed a difference in the texture of my under eye. A little bit of it goes a long way. To apply, I grab a bit of it, warm it up between my rings fingers, and then gently pat it into my skin. In the morning I notice how much smoothr and hydrated my skin feels. Would recommend!
