Rated 4 out of 5 by Vi82 from Great retinol eye cream I’ve been using this for a few months and have been impressed. It doesn’t leave skin greasy or feeling laden down but feels like it really gets into the skin. The retinol is gentle enough that it doesn’t irritate my skin but I hope it’s still doing good! I liked the applicator which was metal and cool for massaging in the cream. I have to admit though that I pretty much gave up applying it with that and now use my fingers. Because it’s retinol I only use this at night. I’d buy this again. I’ve really been impressed with KS products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JanieLou from Not as good as I hoped I chose this as my recent Ndulge birthday present hoping it would be the eye cream I had been looking for, unfortunately it doesn’t do all I want it to do. The retinol has worked wonders on the fine lines at the corners of my eyes and my skin seems a lot firmer; however I just don’t find it hydrating enough and the skin under my eyes does not appear to be smooth. I really like the gold tipped applicator, it feels amazing and cool around my eyes when applying the cream.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SusieTD from A slightly surprising success I was given this as my recent Ndulge birthday present, which I thought was pretty good. I would never have bought a retinol product but, rather to my surprise I found it did work. I no longer have puffy eyes in the morning and the general effect is definitely an improvement. I assumed it was only for use at night because the retinol would make the skin more vulnerable to sunlight, however weak, and I use a sun block in the day all year round. I do have extremely fine and thin skin so, as I say, it was a slightly surprising success and probably worth buying again when I finish it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by turmeric_mama from Ouch! O My Gosh! for an eye cream this is ROUGH!!! I am one week in and the skin around my eyes is raw, sore and very sensitive. I guess that is what is expected from a retinol but having said that I has assumed prior to buying that it would be a gentle as the skin around our eyes is delicate. So far i have seen no significant results and I do go in with an additional eye cream, a much more soothing and hydrating one,on top of this to help deal with the burning sensation. I definitely would not use this AM, only PM. And I am hoping come near future I will see positive results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fay91 from Good night cream I have been using this Kate Somerville eye cream for about a month and a half now and I only use it at night after reading other comments about making the skin dry, etc. So far, I am very pleased, I think I can see a small difference in my fine lines, but I will keep using it for longer to see if it has more long-term benefits. I don't find it drying and I always use SPF in the morning anyway.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from A little harsh! I received a generous sample. Unfortunately with prolonged use, I found the eye area became dry and sensitive. I use retinols regularly, eye and face creams. I've tried several things in the Kate Somerville range but I find them a little harsh for my sensitive skin. The products I have tried are also heavily franganced which I'm not keen on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ivy2 from Wasn’t a fan at first but now a convert I know retinol can be harsh on your skin to begin with. When I first started using this I felt the lines round my eyes looked worse! To the point I stopped using it for a while but because I’d paid so much for it I thought I’d persevere. I’m glad I did as my fine lines have definitely reduced and the initial reaction has stopped altogether

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dollymixx from Light but strong I'm on my third tube of this eye cream. I only use it in the evenings and use the Kate Somerville Age Arrest or Wrinkle Warrior for AM, I find this combination to be perfect. The retinol cream is very effective but can be a bit strong. When I first strated using it I used it AM and PM but it left me a little dry so now I only use it in the PM to maintain its effects and have no issues with drynesss. Those with sensitive skin may wish to start using the product every second or third day but it is worth persisting with. I've seen comments on the the applicator and it can start to look a little "rusty" but it is just product residue which can be cleaned off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tancarp from Results I purchased the Kate Somerville retinol eye cream as I was keen to try even after reading mixed reviews.Im so pleased I did as I love it.Doesnt dry my eyes out like some retinol products & it’s started to soften fine lines even after a few weeks. Would re purchase & try other Kate Somerville products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam45 from Drying I had high hopes for this eye cream with all the amazing reviews, however after using the cream for a while I noticed that the skin under my eyes was getting incredibly dry. I started mixing it with a Boots eye cream to add some hydration... not ideal as it's super pricey. However I then spoke to someone in-store who advised me to only use it at night. This has made an ENORMOUS difference. The skin around my eyes is no longer dry and I am now very happy with this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kayceen from Applicator problem I am sorry to say that although I liked the product, the applicator discoloured after a few uses. Then after about 3 weeks it corroded badly so that I was concerned that flakes were going into the product that I was going to put around my eyes. I decided to stop using it. Until then I enjoyed using the product and if they sort out the applicator I will buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rachael25 from Good apart from the applicator This is a very nice eye cream, I have been using it for a while now and it does dry the area out a little at first (I presume due to the retinol) so that applying concealer can look a bit patchy. After that subsides it's great. The gold applicator gets a bit gunky and rusty looking which is annoying though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yenaled from Amazing results I’ve been using this eye cream for 3/4 weeks now and the results are incredible. Even when I smile now the deep expression lines are much smoother, and my concealer no longer gathers in the lines. I would never have believed a product could deliver these results until I tried it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sunny devon from Great product, bad packaging I have had this product for four months now and whilst the eye cream itself is very good the applicator had oxidised and become discoloured. I now squeeze the product onto my fingers and apply rather than from the tube as intended. The cream is lightweight, but don't forget it has retinol in it so spf is needed if used during the day. I have noticed a brightening effect, but the packaging has put me off a little, which is disappointing for a premium product.
