It's the Real Deal


I always thought eye creams were so much snake oil. One of the (many) reasons I love Paula's Choice is that they're into the science, and never sell miracles in a bottle. This stuff really does work, I saw notable changes in about a week. I was a little nervous about the retinol, but I've had no trouble. Lovely, luxurious-feeling addition to my nighttime routine.

So far so good!


I've been using this day and night for the past three or four days and I've had no issues with puffiness which I was worried about since it has retinol in it but I can detect some soothing anti irritants in it and a cooling feel that's like the eye gel which keeps my eyes from being puffy and this definitely brightens them and makes them look moisturize and the elasticity is more firm. I noticed this after the first use! Can't wait to see how the results continue. Excellent job again Paula and her team♥️




Amazed At The Results


I've used Paula's Choice products for years but I've never written a review until now. I ordered this as soon as it was available because when it comes to eye creams, it's what I do. I've tried too many to count and I get middling results at best. I have sunken, hereditary dark circles and pale skin. Every day someone asks me if I'm feeling okay/did I get any sleep and it's only getting worse in my early 40's. After the first night I used this my circles looked noticeably lighter, but my undereye skin also seemed...puffier? That was worrisome but I kept using it every night because it wasn't irritating and I have nothing to lose. I've been using this for just under a week and my dark circles seem almost coverable by makeup. My undereyes are no longer puffy --they actually look more filled-in/less sunken looking. I've never had these kinds of results before and I'm honestly more than a little shocked. I hope it keeps working!

Your product truly does what it says!


My mom has been using your product for many years .... She is a living example of how wonderful your products really are - and she'll tell you that .... She's 83 years old and her skin looks better today than it did 10 years ago! Thank you for what you do, Paula!!!

Give it a week


Eyes were puffier then normal at first. Skin had adjusted and now feels moisturized and less dehydrated and wrinkly around eyes

Unsure if I would buy this again.


This product has a moldy smell. Is this normal? It is very unpleasant. I have been using Paula's products for years. This is the first time I haven't liked one of products.

not for my eyes


I have been using the anti-aging eye cream, which is a little difficult to work with and since I really liked the ceramide/peptide for the face, I was excited to try the new eye cream. Unfortunately, I guess I must be sensitive to one or more of the ingredients and the "bags" under my eyes were much worse in the morning. The upper lids were also a bit puffier than normal. I'm sorry it didn't work out. I'll be going back to the anti-aging eye cream.

Not for super sensitive skin


The good news is that Paula's Choice never tests on animals, and I applaud that. The flip side is that we sometimes have to experiment on ourselves. Retinol and Vitamin C are too irritating for the area around my eyes, and the results showed up within two applications — itching, burning, swelling. Regretfully, returning the product.
