I like this night cream because it has retinol and it repairs my skin while I sleep while my skin is the most receptive to creams. I used this nightly after removing my makeup. I liked how I could feel the cream sink into my skin and start working. I think this did help repair some fine lines around me eyes. I also liked how it made this skin smoother. The cream is a nice smooth consistency and applied evenly. There was no real fragrance which I liked. I have crepey eye skin so I needed gentle ingredients that still work and this retinol works yet is gentle enough for daily use for me. Absorption This absorbed quickly and evenly without being runny or greasy. Doesn't Clog Pores I had no problems with clogged pores or breakouts while using this. This eye skin area is very sensitive for me and this cream gave me no problems. Effectiveness I think I saw improvement in fine lines around my eyes. I would buy this again.
