I got this mainly because of the consumer affairs report earlier this year claiming that this is one of the anti wrinkle products that actually works, according to the same report, several different brands of anti wrinkle products (a few were actually high end products) were tested, and that only 3 brands actually works, and Nivea was included.
After the report was published, this product actually went out of stock for several months, and I've to visit 3 drugstore to get hold of it. I've been using this for nearly a month and found that this eye cream absorbs really fast, hydrates my under eye area, but If I apply it too close to my lash line it burns my eyes....
Apart from the eye burning issue, this is a really good eyecream, and I find it even better than some of the high end products that I've been using.
