As I've said in other reviews, I use tons of the philosophy skincare line. At one time I worked at the counter in a department store, so I had access to many of their products at that time. This is one product that I never really bought again. It's nice, but not necessary. Eye believe is an eye cream treatment. That means basically that you still should use another eye cream to actually give hydration to the skin around the eye area. That right there was a minus for me. I love my skincare products, but I like to only use one of each thing. The fact that I was going to have to use another eye cream seemed to defeat the purpose. But I digress. When you apply this product, the first thing you'll notice is the texture. Wow, it's smooth! It totally glides and slides, and feels so silky. It really does smooth over the lines and wrinkles around the eye area-at least, it seems to. Upon touch it is indeed smooth, but I didn't really notice much difference. It FELT smoother, but the product seemed purely aesthetic- a smooth texture, but not a whole lot of treatment. To be fair, I don't have tons of lines around the eyes, but I do have some. And it didn't really do much to impress me. So I'll stick with my hope in a tube-it gives me the hydration I need.
