Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product, Flawed Tube I was surprised to read all the other reviews stating the same problem I had. After the second use, the tip came off... I assumed I must have done something wrong and kept using the product without a tip :-(. Needless to say, disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Defective packaging I do like this product, but the packaging is faulty. The tip was broken when I first opened it. The company sent me a new one but with the same broken tip issue on arrival. Both tubes have the tip broken off with no way to screw cap back on. Total shame (and surprise) to have this type of cheap packaging defect in a high end product line.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad Packaging, Fine Product SkinCeuticals really needs to change the packaging on this product. Like other reviewers mentioned, the tip on my bottle broke off after a few weeks use. I also made a point of being very gentle with the bottle, having read the other reviews mentioning the faulty packaging. Product is fine. The cream was a little grainy and didn't blend well on my first few uses of the product, but got better as I kept using it. Not sure that I will be purchasing this again, though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible packaging Eye cream is great but on day 1 of usage, the tip literally broke off when I was putting the cap back on. This has never happened to me with any product in similar packaging. I’m a long time fan of all SkinCeuticals products, I had bad packaging once on one eye gel before, but this tube is so simple, couldn’t even imagine it could break.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The tint is limiting I so wanted to love this product since there are so few sun protection products for our eye area. The tint was too stark a contrast for my complexion. Also most tinted products to have a weird texture to it. I hope you will being out a non tinted version of this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great product, faulty packaging This product would have gotten 5-stars, but the dispensing tip broke off inside the cap. Nearly a whole tube and no way to close the tube.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn’t blend in I was very excited to try this from the previous reviews. The product is thick and does not rub onto the skin easily or blend in well. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Sting! No matter how sweaty I get, this never stings my eyes. Wonderful!
