This eye cream is nice, but it's pricey. I don't believe you need to spend a lot of money on your eye cream. I use whichever face serum and moisturizer I'm currently using as my eye cream. Works great and I don't have to spend extra money on an eye cream.
I was using Clinique Repairwear that is the higher end of Clinique's eye care lotion, and I have to say this stuff really works better. It not only moistens but tightens the skin which helps with the puffiness. This will help with come the dark shadows.
It's a great option! I used to use Clinique All About Eyes but then it started causing my eyes to break out with little red dots, and I switched to this, and immediately noticed the difference (a great difference).
My other go-to eye cream is Clinique All About Eyes and I think they both provide awesome results. I've tried a lot of other products including some from Ren, Olay and a million samples from Sephora and I always go back to my 2 faves.
