How To Use: "Apply one pump of serum under the eye area, around the orbital bone and on the eyelid. Follow with OSEA Eyes & Lips and moisturizer." -Osea's site

Scent? It's got a nice subtle, floral almost honeysuckle like scent. Barely there.

Texture? It's a gel for sure. When you rub it between your fingers it's slippery.

Length of use? I've been using this serum since the beginning of June. I clumsily broke my first bottle whilst cleaning my bathroom counters and Osea was kind enough to send me a replacement. I had been using that one for about two weeks at that point, I went about a week without it and I'm about half way through my current here on Sep 2nd. So that's close to 3 months of use and still going!

My experience: I. Love. This. Serum. It is easily my favorite product of Osea's I've tried to date. The skin under my eyes tends to be very dry, so I need moisture daily. I don't really have dark circles or fine lines (yet! lol) under my eyes so I can't speak to that. But this stuff does such a fantastic job at hydrating and softening the skin around them. I put it on at night before I go to bed and the skin still feels silky soft the next morning. The texture is nice and cooling and I love the way it feels as I dab it on. It has this lovely barely there scent that just adds to the overall experience of using it. It also absorbs quickly and doesn't leave anything behind. This is important to me and others for makeup reasons! My eyes are super puffy in the mornings usually. I don't think it dramatically helps reduce the puffiness, but I think it helps a little. It can burn a bit if you get it in your eye so don't be a dummy. The instructions say to use a full pump but I found that I only need half, so it goes a long way.

Overall: This is something I would re-buy in a heartbeat. It's hydration lasts through the day and night, it feels great on the skin and it's lasted me quite a while. So at $60 I think it's a solid buy. Yes I received this as a gift, no I am not an affiliate and yes I am going to buy this once I run out. That's how much I like it. So if you are looking for a hydrating, softening eye serum that absorbs quickly for a reasonable price: Do this one.
