Does It Work?
I felt almost bad putting any product through this particular ringer. Over the weeks I tried Eye Defense, I had various deadline-induced late nights, and a fair bit of travel (some of it by plane). To top it off, it was winter, which means that radiators on full blast and dehydration galore.
L'Oreal Eye Defense came through with flying colors. Not only did it minimize my eye bags more than some of my other favorite, far more costly brands, but it did several on my fine lines, as well. Generally, I felt that I looked very fresh-faced while using this product, and was amazed with how quickly it soaked up into my skin

  1. I see a lot of mixed reviews on this product so I guess I will try to explain what kind of dark circles I have. Mine are definitely the type that don't go away with extra, it may fade slightly but it's generally there for life. This eye cream has not completely eliminated my dark circles, but I have to say they do look better than without using it. I was patient with this product though, I could only see a noticable difference after a month of using and I used it religiously each day. I have to say if you are expecting to never have to use concealer again on your dark circles, then thats probably too much expectations for this product.
