this is a lovely eye cream, but I will not buy it again as it is a pump it expresses too much cream however gentle you are! therefore very wasteful I did put the excess on my skin round the eyes,it is so rich it gave me spots. you cannot open the bottle to get it out any other way. It would be better in a small jar. I am sure everyone would wash their hands before using it! As I know a lot of companies use pumps for hygienic reasons.I didn't find it economical.
