    Let us know if you see a difference, how much difference, & if you feel it's worth the money. Inquiring minds want to know.
    I've got some puffiness, but mainly the dark circles pretty bad. I've found some decent covers that hide it quite well & use an under eye cream, but I'd like to use something that genuinely helps improve them.
    I've been considering this stuff, but have been hesitant to buy online (only place available here - I've looked) only to find out it's no better than what's available locally for less.

    I'll be waiting patiently for your assessment.

    I was lucky, I was able to get a sample first.

    I went into Sephora and asked for one. They scooped out some into a little jar, and I was sold. I love samples, and try and get them all the time before I buy( unless I know the product )

    If you go to Benefit website, they should tell you who carries it , that are nearest to you.

    It is pricey, but I bought mine around the beginning of October and I use it twice a day...I still have 1/3 of the jar left two months later. It doesn't take much and I'm pretty impressed because it's such a small jar. I figure I'll get another month out of it and $32 for three months doesn't make it seem quite so pricey And I use it below the eye and on my lids from lash line to eyebrow.
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didnít hear me call shotgun.

    A little does go a long way I have found. It's very soothing and so far so good. I have noticed a slight (ok - wishful thinking?) change in the darkness under my eyes. I also use a concealer but I wanted it for the puffiness.

    Since losing weight (as discussed above), I have noticed more of a gaunt look to my eyes and some puffiness and more noticeable darkness or so called "dark circles" under my eyes. I am not sure if it is from lack of sleep (I get up early to work out most mornings), not enough water (I don't drink nearly enough), or the actually weight loss (less "fat" in my face). So hoping this stuff will help it some.

    I went to the website. The closest carrier is about 1,000 miles from here as the crow flies. I doubt I'll be going.
    Eventually I'll crack & order some. Probably after PGM35's assesment after a few days or a week. If it works I'll buy out the place so I never run out.

    PGM35, you should take a picture of yourself once/week so that you can really compare the progression! These camera phones are good for something useful!

    I am surprised at how few people moisturize. All of the gorgeous women/models preach moisturizing the skin. I do like to moisturize, but I also spent a lifetime of battling eczema. I have been, pretty much, over that hump for a while except for an occasional tiny outbreak, and my skin is really good. My mother always told me I had "fine-grained" skin which, I guess meant small pores; hers were larger andmore noticeable, so I could see a difference in our skin texture/appearance. I used to use Oil of Olay, and then I became allergic to it. I remember, back in the day, that Noxema was a product that the girls liked to use. I did that for a little while, and became allergic to that, too.

    Can't tolerate facials, but I can tolerate a facial mask. Used to use something with grapeseed extract, and it seemed to like me, and then it disappeared. Had the mask on one day, my son came into the room, and totally freaked out!!! It was hilarious!!! He was a little bitty boy. Poor baby.

    I haven't tried it on my lids ( my eyes are so sensitive I get scared it will turn them red again) I should try this on my lids though, if only once thanks JavaJo

    THanks, Rattus. So by repair you mean... if you have wrinkles? Or your skin is flaking? Or what? Sorry to be so ignorant...I must have missed when ads first started using the word serum....
