To protect skin when using brightening products, be sure to apply sunscreen to treated areas (like COOLA Tinted Matte SPF 30 for Face) and avoid sun exposure.

Birchbox Breakdown

Are your night owl habits giving you panda eyes? Put down your concealer: this brightening eye cream by dr. brandt® reduces the appearance of dark under eye circles without the use of makeup. Using a signature blend of vitamins and marine-based skin brighteners, this unique formula repairs and protects delicate under eye skin while it brightens. You’ll look like you logged in 10 hours of beauty sleep even if you were burning the midnight oil.

How it Works

This remarkable formula uses a special blend of marine-based molecules and antioxidants to repair and protect skin. Abyssine® 657 protects skin from environmental damage, astaxanthine protects against UV photo-oxidation and inflammation, and algae-based Lightoceane® lightens skin. Vitamin C reduces melanin synthesis and is also used as a brightening agent.

How to Use

After cleansing your face, use middle or ring finger to gently pat a small amount of cream onto under eye area until it is fully absorbed. Use morning and night, but be aware that you should always use UV protection and avoid excessive sun exposure when using any brightening product.

Wow this stuff works!

A little goes a LONG way! This cream really does brighten up those dark circles we all sometimes get, thus brightening up your whole face! I no longer have to worry about going into work looking sicker than a dog when I have had a sleepless night!

I think this stuff works
Sampled

I tried this as a sample and there was only a few days of product to use. In the few days, it seemed to get rid of the dark circles. I didn't completely put away the concealer, but I probably could have gotten away without using it. Felt a little sticky going on and I used less than the recommended amount. Overall, I would buy again if it didn't cost so much.

Well rested eyes

My eyes tend to get puffy and dark circles below my eyes. I like the way this product makes my skin feel and look. A little goes a long way.

Excellent Product, Great Value
Purchased

This may seem expensive, but it takes a tiny amount of product per application. It has a great texture, so it goes on smoothly. I can already tell a difference in the skin under my eyes.

Actually works

Long before I became "middle aged" I had problems with under-eye circles (or darkness or excess luggage) Here is a product that actually works. It's on my favorite list now with plans to purchase in the future. It's most definitely worth the money.
