This cream is AMAZING!! It takes a few pumps to get it to come out for the first use but once you do, it only takes just a little. I used it for my dark circles. I put about a pea size amount on my fingers and rubbed around my eyes. Within about ten minutes, my dark circles were gone!! I've tried other products that claim to remove dark circles and I haven't seen instant results like this one. The cream is yellow but doesn't leave any discoloration on your skin. It smells like lemons or has a lemony scent to it, but it's not overpowering. It absorbs well into your skin and as I said, a little does go a long way. Your skin doesn't feel sticky after it absorbs. I had a slight tingling sensation when I applied but nothing to the point of it irritating my face or eyes. You can also apply this cream multiple times per day, if you want. So far, I've been able to apply once and have it last all day for my dark circles. The bottle has a cap on it that stays on well, so, you can keep it in your purse or on the go without the worry of a mess. I'm really impressed with it!!
