I am not a fan of many layers of makeup, especially in the AZ summers! I also have very sensitive skin and deep, dark circles (thanks genetics). This eye cream is so soothing and the added benefit of minimizing my dark circles, without a cakey appearance makes it the best eye cream out there. I am 47 y/o with medium skin coloring and it works great for my complection. I also wear contacts and this doesn't bother my eyes with them in. All around a great product!
