Pros: hydrates eye area, lightens dark circles
Cons: leaves shiny residue, smells odd

I was searching for a product to use under my eyes to get rid of dark circles (due to lack of sleep). I was shown a couple products, but the sales clerk at The Body Shop recommended the Vitamin E eye cream and told me it would hydrate the skin under the eyes and alleviate the dark circles. I decided to give it a try and was a bit disappointed.

While the eye cream certainly hydrates the under eye area, the vitamin E oil left quite a bit of shine on my skin. I waited for awhile and the shine didn't go away. I suppose you could cover it with a bit of concealer and powder, but I don't like to spend a lot of time on my makeup, so I was hoping for a product that would hydrate my eyes and get rid of the dark circles without causing any other issues.

I do like the fact that this is not a thick cream, so it is easy to lightly apply to the eye area without having to press or pull at the delicate under-eye skin.

The extra hydration provided by this cream does get rid of the dark circles, which is a plus. If it had more of a matte finish, I would certainly give this product a higher rating.
