Boost collagen production in spots plagued by wrinkles and fine lines with dr. brandt’s collagen booster®.

dr. brandt® skincare

Birchbox Breakdown

An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but when it comes to dark circles, we turn to dr. brandt®. His sheer dark circles away® serum is a veritable multi-tasker. It minimizes puffiness, lightens dark circles, shrinks under-eye bags, and boosts collagen production—so you always look your best, no matter how late you got in.

How it Works

A proprietary blend of amino acids and hyaluronic acid boost collagen levels, while plant extracts reduce dark circles, puffiness, and bags. A microencapsulated skin brightener (Lumisphere™) and the cold ball applicator help boost radiance. Finally, microencapsulated water spheres permeate deep into the skin for intense hydration.

How to Use

After washing your face, gently press the dispenser to release a small amount of product and roll the ball along the orbital bone. Gently pat any excess with ring finger until absorbed.

good eye cream!

I love the rollerball that's on the applicator with this... it always feels cool going on and it allows you to really stretch out the product, as you don't need a lot of it! Immediately makes my eyes look better!

Serum doesn't blend
Purchased

The good: the roller-ball applicator is soothing and easy to use, though you really only need half a pump. It also did moisturize the area and make the lines around my eyes more smooth for a short time.

The bad: the product didn't lessen dark circles, and after a few weeks of use (with my clarisonic opal, no less) I haven't noticed any reversal. it's definitely just a treatment

The ugly: this is a serum and the product recommends using a moisturizer as a follow-up. i DO use eye serums + moisturizer + supergoop eye cream with SPF, and this was a disaster at blending. it would start to have a weird, flaky residue when blending multiple products. in the morning, by the time i got to eye shadow primer and eye makeup, i was using makeup remover so my eyes didn't look like they were seriously peeling.

overall: will NOT be purchasing and would NOT recommend. MUCH better products out there.

Can I give it zero stars?
Purchased

I was super disappointed in this eye cream. First of all, it did nothing to brighten my undereye circles or de-puff my eyes, which was the main reason I purchased this product. Worse than that, the product didn't actually sink in to my skin. It just dried right there on the surface. Once I applied my BB cream over it, the cream just flaked off. It didn't even moisturize my eye area. It was truly awful and I'm sorry to say that after loving so many other Dr. Brandt's products I will be returning this one.

Goopy and doesn't blend
Purchased

You can't use this in any daytime out of the house application. Comes out in bulk, doesn't blend in. Only useful as comfort at night.

This is the best ever dark circle eye product I have used up to this date! I would highly recommend this product to anyone with severe eye circles!

An eye cream that actually works!
Purchased

I had doubts that this eye cream could possibly live up to the hype. This morning, I applied it after a very late night at a rock show. The cold ball applicator was so soothing and the puffiness and bags under my eyes disappeared quickly.

The dark circles under my eyes seem lighter already.

It delivered on every promise and I am excited to see how it works long term to boost collagen.

nothing to write home about

My sister loves trying new products and is always looking for something new for dark circles. I sent this to her as a birthday gift and she said it feels good, but does not do much. It's s shame that she must continue her search.

Smells Funny
Purchased

Love dr brandt's microdermabrasion face wash so I thought I'd try this... It literally stinks! Doesn't really matter if it works well or not if I don't like the smell
