The consistency is light, but it leaves the skin a teeny bit sticky. When it first comes out from the tube, it can look runny, that’s because of the Vitamin C. It’s still easy to apply and it makes the under eye area look illuminated. The Vitamin C can cause sensitivity to the skin and eyes. If I wasn’t careful how I applied it, it would sting my eyes. It’s drying for my under eye area and peels the skin sometimes. I didn’t see any improvements to the skin texture around my eyes.
