Whatever I apply to my face also goes around the eyes. I don't want to "sell them short," so to speak. Laughing

I think it really depends on your skin, how sensitive it is and how long you've been using a vitamin C serum. Some people caqn use 20% around the eye area but some people can't even handle 20% on the rest of their face.

My C+ Firming is 12% and I use it under my eyes with absolutely no problems at all.

I use a 20% C serum, and apply around eyes as well as face. But like Mabsy wrote, it depends on what your skin does well with.
