Rated 2 out of 5 by Claire15 from Not for me I received a decent a decent size sample of this to try from one of the Space NK stores. Am very glad I tried it before buying the full size product. I’ve used retinol on my skin before with no problems. Unfortunately this caused my under eye area to sting rather uncomfortably. I reduced the frequency of use to allow my skin to get used to perhaps a more concentrated retinol than I’ve used before but this made no difference. I also did not find this cream very hydrating. It left my eyes sore and red. I love many other Kate Somerville products but this is not for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MarieB from Careful with nightly use if your first retinol I actually like this. It has a pleasant texture and provides some hydration, in addition to the retinol benefits. I have been using retinol and tretinoin for some time, and have used some retinol eye products before, so I blithely went straight into using this nightly. I don’t know if this is strong, or if I was overlapping it with my prescription tret, but I found I could only use this for a few nights in a row and then my eye skin would get a little stingy and I’d need to go back to a normal hydrating eye cream for a while. I was able to continue using, but needed to listen to my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RuthM from Really effective night eye cream I have used this twice a week over the last year, and I’m at the end of my second tube. I use this regularly (with the matching night cream) and it leaves soft, hydrated eye area. I have never experienced any irritation ( and would happily use it every other night if I didn’t have other products to use up). Highly effective and I strongly recommend it. And it lasts for ages, it’s light and you need a tiny amount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KipHip from An eye cream that actually delivers I have super sensitive skin, but for some reason not to all products. Somehow retinol seems to be ok so I was a bit cautious about trying this product but it really has made a difference to my fine lines on the outside of the eyes that have started to appear this year. You need to use it a few times but then for me there were results that got better with more use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MitchScott from Good but strong Around the start of the year I first tried a retinol eye cream from another brand and I was impressed with the results. Decided to try the KS retinol firming eye cream as generally I do like her formula’s and products. I use a tiny amount and apply with my fingers rather than the tube applicator as I find it easier. The skin around my eyes is rather sensitive and discovered I can’t use this every day nor can I use it morning AND night. After a few days in a row of usage it caused the skin to go red and there was an uncomfortable burning sensation that lasted a few seconds or so. So I tend to use it every other day and only in the evenings. My skin seems to be fine with this. It does absorb quickly and it is effective – skin around my eyes does appear firmer and smoother - but as mentioned, I do find it on the strong side! I would recommend but if your skin is on the sensitive side, definitely worth trying before buying.
