Wasn't overly impressed with this product. The cream itself didn't really do much for my eyes and the micropulser heated up which seemed counterintuitive. Typically you would apply a cool compress to reduce puffiness.
I received this product as a win from ChickAdvisor.
The concept was interesting - using a vibrating metal tip to massage in anti aging, anti puff undereye cream. But in reality it's far from great. The cream itself is okay but I have used much better. The supposed 'dark circle' cream contains L'Oreals own "Erasyl", but good luck finding any concrete information on what its is and proof it works as said.
You unscrew the vibrating tip portion on top to get to the opening of the tube of cream. Squeeze out a small amount and pat around eye. Replace tip onto tube and slide up this tiny button on the blue tip to start the vibration. As you are instructed to disassemble the tube after its all used - to access the battery for proper disposal, its not constructed very well. I still have plenty of cream left but I have to keep popping the button back into place to use the vibration aspect.
The vibrating tip can drag and pull your under eye, especially if you're in your 40's like me and are starting to lose skin elasticity. Using the tip on an angle instead of straight on helped but I could imagine if you repeatedly dragged this thing on your skin you could do more harm than good.
Also as I have used this product for some weeks and at different times of day, I suspect that its the vibration on the skin that helps fluid drainage, resulting in less puffy and dark eyes, rather than any new ingredient (that doesnt even seem to contain a skin lightener). If your dark circles are due to chronic lack of sleep or food allergies this isnt going to help one bit!
As much as I love most of L'Oreals other products I suggest you take a pass on this one.
