Pros: soothing
It's been one month now since I started using this product as instructed with morning and nightly applications. I still have ~ 2/3 the tube left so you can expect this to last a decent length of time for the money spent. You only need a TINY amount for each eye; I use about a grain of rice sized amount per eye. As for how satisfied I am with this cream, I'd say pretty well. At 20 years old, I don't really have puffy eyes to complain about - my eyes are only puffy when I first wake up, or if I'm having a really tiring/stressful day. My problem is with constant shadows under my eyes regardless of how rested I am. That's the main reason I bought this treatment - even though it's not advertised to take care of shadows, I wanted to see if it might do so anyways and I figured it couldn't hurt regarding the slight morning puffing. Sadly this cream didn't do anything about my dark circles but I wasn't really expecting that anyway so I don't mind. I did however notice a slight improvement in the firmness of the skin under my eyes... and considering the fact I don't really HAVE a probelm with age-related puffing, you can imagine how well this would work on eyes that do have an issue with that. Although I do still have a slight puff in the morning (which could very well be due to the fact I sleep on my face) it goes away quickly and during the day my eyes look more rested. It wasn't a dramatic change from before, but that's probably because my skin is still fairly young. Overall I was very satisfied with the product (which I purchased more out of curiosity than need) and in the future I will probably try something else that's aimed at dark circles instead. For anyone who does really suffer from tired puffy eyes though, I definately recommend this product. It smells nice and is quite relaxing to put on before bed. It also moisturizes my eyes really well.

Pros: transforming
I've always had dry/oily skin and used a face moisturizer by Olay for years. I used to have to put it on several times in certain problem areas like my nose and chin (sometimes 7 or 8 times) before I could put on my Bare Minerals foundation, or else my makeup flaked and my skin overall looked terrible. Finally fed up, I purchased this cream and the very first time I tried it, I was in love. After years of frustration, I was able to apply a small amount of moisturizer to my face ONE TIME and then put on my foundation with absolutely no problems. I was amazed. I used to think my skin was just in horrible condition, but I realized that my skin really wasn't THAT bad... I just needed the right moisturizer. The only thing I disliked about this product was that it sweat off very easily. Whether I'm blowing my hair dry or spending time outside when it's hot/humid, my face quickly gets very slick and shiny with this lotion. The price is also a slight turn-off - $28 for 1.7 oz. I must admit that after finishing one container, I bought a different moisturizer that was much more economical. Although it does not feel quite as smooth on my skin after application as the Bare Escentuals one did, my Bare Minerals makeup goes on just as smoothly, I only have to apply the cream one time (so I'm just as satisfied with the results as this much more expensive brand), and it doesn't sweat off as easily. Perhaps it's just my skin and on someone else it will stay in place longer, and if you don't mind forking over the money for such a tiny amount of cream, I definately recommend this product. It gave me so much more confidence in my skin - the only reason I switched was because I couldn't stomach paying the price and having it sweat off my face too easily when I could buy another, MUCH cheaper product that worked just as well and stayed on longer. That's the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5, because it's still an amazing product.

Is this product noncomedogenic?
My skin is very dry and acne prone. I break out very easily so I'm trying to find a product that won't clog my pores.
I suffered from terrible acne for about 5 years before it finally cleared up. Although I still get occasional pimples and I have some scarring, I'm very satisfied with my face. I also have very dry skin (and slightly oily) so I was hesitant to buy this fearing that it might clog my pores. It really didn't though - I absolutely loved it. Where other moisturizers had failed to help with my dry skin in the past, this one worked wonders. It also didn't cause any acne flairups or irritate my skin, so I was very happy with this product and recommend you try it.

does it leave a residue??
i have this cream and after i aply it it starts to sort of peel off.its not really a cream. i dont know if this is normal or not. please someone who on this let me know if this happens to you or not.
I found that if I put on too much of this cream, so much that I had to really rub my face to work it in, it left a bit of a residue. I don't know that I'd say mine peeled off, but it flaked a little bit and I had to let it dry and then brush off the excess before applying my foundation. If I didn't put on a ton of this cream (and really, since it's so thick I didn't NEED to put on a lot), then I didn't get the residue. If you put on less and just spend more time spreading it around and massaging it in, maybe you'll be ok.
