I recieved a deluxe sample of the product about a week ago. I use only in the morning and use another eyecream at night. I was more interested in the tightening and anti wrinkle aspects of this eye cream not the brightening. So far it has lifted my drooping lid area slightly. As for as brightening im not sure. Besides deluxe samples are meant to try out the product not to give you full results. Over all i think id buy a full size.
