I really love this eye cream for the most part and I'll tell you why. There are so many creams that you use and use and yet you feel it has done no good or was a total waste of time and money. That is not the case here. I have a 15 month old and am 5 months pregnant with number 2... needless to say I am known to look a "little" tired. My eyes tend to be a little puffy and a little dark... I was more than a tad skeptical that this smallish tube would do much good. I was wrong. It goes on smoothly with a nice, soothing, cool and nicely shaped metal applicator tip. It's more like a cooling eye massage (not cold and shocking, but cool and refreshing feeling) than anything. After the first 4 or 5 days I noticed that my puffy eyes were gone and the darkness had greatly diminished. As I continued using it, I started to look more like myself and less like a tired mom. This felt like no small miracle. I felt like, due to the softening qualities this product had on the skin under and around my eyes, that my fine lines were far less noticeable. I use it twice a day. Once before bed and once after my shower in the morning. My one complaint is how long it takes this cream to soak in to the skin completely. It does leave your skin a little slick for quite some time. This is a little problematic if you need to apply make-up too soon after application. Other than that, I really do think this is a worthwhile product and am very glad to have found it!

Not my favorite whitening product
I was so hopeful, then so unimpressed. They have a claim on the back of the package that they dissolve in 5-10 minutes with nothing to brush away. I didn't find that to be the case. I was left with an icky plasticky film on my teeth that absolutely needed to be brushed away. They are similar in makeup to those old breath strips that dissolve on your tongue. Beware, they stick to everything that is even remotely damp. I made the mistake of not drying my hands thoroughly after brushing my teeth and washing my hands prior to trying these strips. My poor thumbs and lips got the bulk of the strips the first go round. I found them much more user-friendly when you make sure to keep your lips out of the way and your hands totally dry when applying! =) I think they whiten all right... but for the unpleasant taste, the delicate and detailed nature of application, and the residual filmy feeling... I would go with a traditional strip.

All right, but a little dry
I found that this product, while it will stay on through a lot of different conditions, has a drying effect on the lips that requires you to constantly be applying the top coat. I hate that dry feeling.

Thick and rich
These creams are great. They are thick and indulgent with lovely (even if a bit heavy) fragrances. I have found that they keep my skin feeling soft and smooth all day.

A bit heavy and sticky
If you live in an area with high humidity be careful. I have found this product to sit too heavily on my hair and leave a sticky residue which dulls my hair. I'm not blown away.

The thing that I found most helpful to know before applying this blush is to dab, don't smear it onto the apples of your cheeks. If you smear it it will be a lot harder to blend and after rubbing your face that much you won't be able to tell if you're red because you put on too much blush or because you rubbed too much. I tend to put a LITTLE on my fingertip or makeup sponge and dab it onto my cheeks, that way I am in control of how much and where it goes and it's way easier to blend.

I have olive skin and I found that all of their shades were too yellow for me. I'm sure it would have worked wonderfully if only they had had a shade that was less yellow.
