Review of Neutrogena® Rapid Dark Circle Repair eye cream.

I have awful dark circles under my eyes.  I've had them for a long time and have been told it's due to allergies, not sleeping enough, diet, and most recently, possibly due to my thyroid condition.  Whatever the reason, I've learned to live with it and also learned to spend a lot of money trying to cover them up.  So when I received this Neutrogena® Rapid Dark Circle Repair eye cream, I was excited to give it a go.


  • Retails $20.99 for 0.13oz.
  • About the product: Wake up fatigued eyes & visibly reduce the look of dark circles in just one week.  This nourishing, ophthalmologist-tested eye cream is formulated with Accelerated Brightening Complex to make under-eye skin tone more even and diffuse the look of dark circles while light reflecting minerals brighten eyes.

  • How to use: Twist the bottom of the package until the product appears on the brush, approximately 10 twists.  Apply to eye area alone or under makeup.  To clean, wipe brush with dry cloth or tissue.  Do not wet, or allow water to pass through brush.
  • What I thought: First off it took just over 50 twists to get the product to come out onto the brush.  Yes, I counted!  The wording on the package, "Visibly reduces the look of dark circles in just one week," makes it sound like after a week you could either stop using the product or use less, but after a week I noticed no difference in my dark circles.  I also wasn't sure how much of it I should use so I ended up using it 2 times a day.  Once in the morning before I applied my makeup, and once in the afternoon after removing my makeup and washing my face.  It reminds me of a Clean & Clear Under Eye Brightening stick I used to like that has since been discontinued.  How it helps diminish the circles is by reflecting light and you can see the shimmer in the product when applied.  The brush was soft, the product was definitely moisturizing.  Unfortunately, it left the skin around my eye looking dewy and feeling oily on its own and I ended up using the same amount of concealer as I had in the past.  One thing I wish it would have done is left a cooling effect on my skin.  Something I had loved about the Clean & Clear product.
  • I wouldn't buy this.

I must say this might be a better product for someone who doesn't have dramatic racoon eyes like I do.  So my search will continue to find something that will help save me from my awful dark circles.

  2. This is pretty much my experience as well. I experimented by only putting on one eye for a week. No difference whatsoever. Don't waste your money.
