Great buy!

One of the best eye products I have ever tried. The only drawback for me is that it has an effect on bags, darkness and lines, but is not so lifting for me. But it plumps up and perks up the eye area like a real star anyways. Lovely to dab on during the day in front of the computor as well.

Best eye cream that actually produces results. At least for me. After using my first bottle, I immediately ordered another one. Don't care about the price. My eyes are awakened and the fine lines are smaller!

A staple for me

I actually started using this one two years ago, and then happily re-ordered. Its chief selling-point is that it magically erases those crepey half-moons under your eyes within seconds, and it does this better than any other eye-cream I’ve tested. Quite fun to watch. The effect won’t last all day – you need to start again if you’re heading for a night out. Sorts out mild puffiness. Quite moisturising - though if your under-eye area is severely parched, there are probably better options. Tip: you may get some redness for the first few days. Don’t worry – this will go as your skin adapts. Also, use sparingly. I didn’t at first – and ended up with panda eyes from mascara migration. Comes in a generously-sized glass bottle, with a pump that allows you to squeeze out just a smidgeon.

Not for me

I used Start Over for three days. The skin around my eyes became sore and dry. I was so disappointed, having bought into the expensive mistake, for me.

A very good product

Again I was utterly scared to try something on my eye area after a horrible allergic reaction, but with this cream nothing happened, but good things. No watery eyes, no stinging, no red patches, only a very cleared out, even skin tone on the day after, as if I had been sleeping thorough the night for whole 8 hours(which is not the case having a very night active toddler). Shadows and crow feet have definitely improved. I gave 4 stars only because I didn't notice much of an effect on my eye bags, but it can be that I am chronically sleep deprived so only miracles would work...I will try and keep it in the fridge. Anyway highly recommended and will repurchase.

Not all it's made up to be

This is raved upon because of the caffeine content. Other creams have much more so this impresses me not very much. My main concern however is that other than the caffeine it is actually not a great eye cream. I find it very drying and even though it feels good upon application it does the opposite of what it promises. My eyes have never been so dry. The dryness of course emphasises fine lines and wrinkles. Not worth the price tag for me.

Excellent for normal skin too

This cream did sting my eyes the first one or two times I used it, but I learned not to let it touch the actual eye. You need a tiny amount and it is absorbed very easily and quickly. One bottle lasts a very long time - it's worth scraping inside with your little finger once the pump has finished. I like this cream very much - the skin around my eyes hasn't felt dry since I started using it and I only put it on in the morning.

This is my holy grail

I love, love, love this product. I am always in pursuit of anything that promises to reduce fine lines, tighten my skin and hold back the years and I have found the secret! This is not for everyone as it is very active, but for me it was fine and it absolutely delivers! I demand a lot from my skincare products- late nights, pollution, dehydration, the elements etc and this is my new best friend. Expensive? That depends on your point of view. The one bottle has lasted absolutely ages much more so than any other eye cream - possibly because of the pump - I only use less than half a pump but morning and evening and this has delivered the best results ever.

Best of the best

The only eye cream I would use. I tried most other brands, some of them would make my skin around my eyes very oily and some spots come out. But Start Over will not cause such problems. I use Start Over day and night before moisturiser, it's a luxury treat for my eyes everyday.

This stuff is great: it really works on puffy eyes and dark circles, and all of my eye area starts looking better after a few days. It's a true start over I use it in the morning and at night - in the morning, I just apply an eye cream afterwards, and feel comfortable and hydrated.
