I love this eye-cream. It is neither too light nor too heavy. Some creams tend to be too watery or too thick, but Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream is a nice creamy consistency which moistens the skin around the eyes and makes it appear a little brighter as well. I have very sensitive under-eyes, and this is one of the FEW creams my skin does not react to. It doesn't have that strong medicinal smell or make my eyes burn, like so many others do.
Just carefully pat on a minimal amount at a time and lightly smooth it in. I saw someone mention a chalky residue, but that is only if you glob on too much and don't smooth it in. I use it right before applying my undercover eye makeup (I have very dark circles), and it blends well with my undercover (It doesn't make my make-up streak or clump, like other eye creams have).
This eye cream is definitely worth a try. I am very picky, and so far this is my favorite!

As an altime fan of most of Oil of Olay products, I am quite disappointed with the Total Effects Transforming Eye Cream. I understand that what works for someone else may not work for me and I didn't see any results by using this product for two months. It did not diminish my lines, nor did it brighten the skin under my eyes. It does glide on smoothly and never burned my skin, but the drawback to this product is that it leaves a chalky residue after each use. I found myself having to use a toner to remove the chalkiness after each use and that truly defeats the purpose. I love the Total Effects Creamy Facial Cleanser, but the eye cream didn't do anything for me.

    Comments about Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream, .5 oz:

    I was born with very dark circles under my eyes, a terrible contrast with my fair skin. My nickname when I was a kid (from my older sister's friends of course) was zombie. I've tried everything trying to make the circles go away, but nothing worked, I turned 30 this year so I can tell you I've tried a lot of gels and creams over the years. I used to rely on concealer to make them less noticeable (and really still do).
    When I started using this product I saw instant results. The cream has a pinkish color and it instantly lightens any dark circles. The amazing thing is, I used it again that night, and when I got out of the shower, even after washing my face, my undereye circles looked lighter. I was amazed. I'm not saying everyone will have the same results, but I am extememly happy with how my eyes look. I am a faithful olay user, and love their products (as well as Mary Kay). I was using Avon undereye cream for a while, but nothing compares to this (by the way, I use the one in the jar)

          I bought this as an emergency fill-in until I could get my regular eye cream. It works just fine, but sometimes it cakes, so, I started using it OVER my regular eye cream as a concealer. It has wonderful brightening properties, and it made my whole eye area look bathed in light and wrinkle free. Just be sure to use a small amount and pat it in well.

                Comments about Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream, .5 oz:

                I would not typically give a review but I have been plesantly surprised by this product and thought this may be of some help to someone else out there. I have warm brown skin and have been plagued with very dark circles around the eyes coupled with increased puffiness and dryness which was starting to cause a few small lines. I wasn't expecting a lot from this and only bought the two Olay products since I had a really good coupon for saving on the purchase. I have been using both on a pretty regular basis of about 5 out of seven days in the week for the last five weeks and not really payng much attention. It finally struck me this week that about two weeks ago I stopped using the concealer that I would faithfully use every morning around my eyes! The change was so gradual that I didn't see it happening but I noticed that my skin was smoother and radiant. I have honestly gotten up a couple of mornings and not wanted to put makeup on because my skin looked so good! My routine is simple, remove makeup with an inexpensive cream (no water) at night and apply Olay Total Effects Eye Cream and 7 in 1 Mousturizer. Mornings consist of the same cream removed with warm water and followed by the Olay products. Since I have started using this product, my face has returned to "39 and holding" even though I'm fifty!

                Well, it is quite pleasant to wear - it is very lightweight, I feel it does depuff and it is a nice consistency. However, I think it's brightening and covers up dark circles slightly because it's makeup-y. It appears to have slight color. I think I will keep it because it can work for the morning since I put some make up on to cover up the dark circles anyway, so this is for the times that I want to be natural. But for the night time, I'd like something else

                    This is a super creamy product that is more of a makeup. You can put it under or over your eye concealer or cover-up, eye make-up. I works very well as an eye brightener and helps to smooth out the creases (of makeup) under your eyes.

                      I just ran out of this product, having made the small pot last a whole year, using sparingly 1-2 times daily. I've been looking into high-end eye brighteners, and was more pleased with the effect of this product, so I'm purchasing another. I can't say that I noticed any fine lines disappearing, but I am hoping that using this is preventing new ones from appearing. Overall, I see myself continuing to use this in the day time under makeup, since the subtle shimmer gives me a nice, natural, instantly younger and awake look. In a hurry, I use only this and mascara. I may look for something a little more powerful to fight signs of ages at night in the long run.

                          This eye cream is a lovely consistency and color. It doesnt make my eyes puffy if I put it on before bedtime and it doesnt irritate my eyes in the morning when I put it on. I love that it lightens up my dark eye area a little bit and it doesnt have any odor and it glides on easily. I love this eye cream and hope they always make it because I have tried dozens of brands, more expensive ones too and this is the best! Great value because it lasts a very long time too. Olay, please do not discontinue this eye cream!!!!

                              I bought this because I liked the Total Effect SPF lotion so I thought I'd try this one out. I don't like it at all. I've tried it for 2 weeks, and it left more lines on the area around my eyes than it did take away. And there's a shimmery ingredient in there that I wish would go away.
