I bought this product because I started to notice fine lines under my eyes. I am in my mid thirties and trying to control wrinkles in the eye area. I have sensitive skin that tends to break out easily, and have to watch which products I use. This product was expensive, but you really do not need a lot at all, so it will last a long time. I applied it at night before bed and it absorbed really well. It did not irritate my under eyes, or cause any redness. I used it for about a week before noticing that the skin under my eyes was starting to crack and peel. It was causing the skin to dry out and my makeup would get heavy in that are and crack. I think this is a good product that works, however it is just to strong for my sensitive skin. Absorption This cream really absorbed well and did not leave my eyes looking greasy or oily. Effectiveness This product did reduce the appearance of fine lines, however it dried out my skin under the eye.
