Did nothing for me
I was excited to see this product on special at my local supermarket after reading rave reviews of the serum. Unfortunately I found this eye cream did nothing for my skin. After a month of use I noticed no difference or improvement. I don't find this eye cream to be hydrating, moisturizing, brightening, firming ... nothing. As I got it on sale I'm not too disappointed with the price and I will use it up but would not repurchase.

I think this cream is too thick. It doesn't absorb well into my skin.
There is a little tint so it does help a little to cover up by dark circles. It doesn't have any fragrance.
Also, I find I can't use makeup on top of it. All my foundation becomes a little flaky near the eye area.
I've nearly finished the jar and I haven't noticed any difference.

I used this together with the Luminosity serum. This is very lightly fragranced, creamy and very easy to apply. I used this together with the Luminosity serum; and like its serum counterpart, I don't think this line of products suit me. Despite using this constantly for a few weeks, the fine lines around my eyes were still noticeable, and the overall condition of my eyes were unchanged.

This eye cream is quite thick and can irritate my eyes a little bit. I also did not see any improvement to fine lines after continued usage. It does have a nice scent to it and come packaged in a nice glass jar. However, I did not get any anti-ageing benefits from using it.

Hydration for the Eyes
L'oreal has some fantastic products, so I really wanted to try the eye cream from the popular Youth Code range. Everyone wants to retain a youthful appearance, so I must admit that the name was appealing to me.
L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Rejuvenating Anti-Wrinkle Eye Care contains pro-gen technology, adenosine and a soft focus effect powder, so whilst the ingredients work to target concerns related to the eye area, the subtle tint acts to illuminate, creating an immediate effect. The formula of the Eye Care is an oil-in-water emulsion made from wax and glycerine. Claims are that the eye cream reduces the look of crow’s feet, dark circles and eye bags after a month.
Packaged in a 15ml jar, L'Oreal Youth Code eye cream is pale pink in colour. I can detect a very subtle scent that is pleasant. The cream is quite thick, but almost seems to be of a whipped nature.
Upon application, I found that dabbing a small amount around my eye area, concentrating on crows feet and dark circles, the cream absorbed quickly in this delicate area. There was the subtlest hint of illumination, but quite honestly was not enough to detract from my dark circles
I am now almost finished a jar, which has lasted for a few months, as not much product is needed.
The dark circles and crows feet unfortunately remain. I'm not surprised about the dark circles, as nothing I have used over the years have diminished them.
What I have noticed is that the crepiness around my eye area has disappeared, thanks to the extremely hydrating nature of this product. It seems as I get older, although I have combination skin, my eye area continues to become a dryer area. With this immense hydration comes a plumping effect. There seems to be a little more than just skin and bone.
It is nice to have extra hydration for the eyes, but I'm not sure I'll stick with the L'Oreal Youth Code alone, I expect more from an eye cream, and will continue to be on the search for my perfect wonder cream for the eyes.

The secret to staying young?
I'm still only young and do not have any wrinkles at all but I am very worried about ageing, a bit of OCD so I bought this and have been using it for about a month now. The only lines I really had were these tiny little lines under my eyes, like directly on the skin about 2mm under my lower lashline that everyone has. They are now about 90% gone! I am shocked. I will definitely continue to use this and I am now considering purchasing the full range. Maybe I will never age!

Hydrating Eye Cream
This pale pink cream was quite gentle for around the eye area. I did help with my hydration issues but I'm not sure that it made a big difference to my wrinkles (well, perhaps a subtle difference). You really didn't need to use very much at a time so this lasted me a long time really. Overall, I found it quite a nice cream for adding moisture and did make my eyes look brighter.

I have reviewed this product before and was surprised to see how I rated it ( 4 stars). I suppose I'd only been using it a week or two. My review is now officially being downgraded. I've used this eye cream for 8 weeks continually and then at least 2 times a week since then. I'm nearly getting to the end of it. Out of the 3 products in the Youth Code range, this was my favourite by far. It is a gentle cream for around the eye area, although there have been no major differences. That's why I stopped using only this eye cream. It states that it is supposed to get rid of dark circles but it doesn't. The cream is a nice consistency, it spreads easy and doesn't irritate my eyes at all ( which is a great trait, as my eyes are sensitive to a lot of things).

Very moisturising =)
I love the way this product feels going on. It has a great texture and a small amount is all that is needed to get right around those eyes!
I personally don't really have any problem wrinkles or anything, but believe strongly in preventing these things before they happen! The cream is lightly scented and absorbs into the skin quite quickly. It leaves the eye area feeling hydrated and soft.
For someone who wears alot of eye makeup, I find it's really important to take care of the eye area as it is quite delicate.
I experienced a small amount of milia after using this product and decided to have a short break. After that I decided to just use it every second day. Ever since the milia has cleared up and I am still reaping fantastic results from the product
