If you struggle with stubborn discoloration elsewhere on your face, use StriVectin-EV™ Get Even Spot Repair to target dark spots.


Birchbox Breakdown

The word “corrector” can sometimes remind us of grade school days: red Xs from teachers that signified you’d goofed on your multiplication tables yet again. But this is one corrector that will make you smile. Whether your dark undereye circles are genetic, a result of poor circulation, or a sign of stress and lack of sleep, the potent formula delivers real results: Based on consumer feedback, 90 percent of people see visibly lighter dark circles after two weeks of use.

How it Works

Strivectin’s proprietary NIA-114 (niacin) molecule normalizes pigment transfer, thereby targeting the triggers that cause dark circles, and helps stimulate DNA repair. It also boosts the effectiveness of vitamin C, which stimulates the production of collagen and reduces the production of melanin. Finally, caffeine drains the undereye area to diminish discoloration and puffiness, while mica reflects light for instant luminosity.

How to Use

Using your ring fingertip, gently dab (don’t rub) around eye area morning and night.

I think it's working!

I bought this and the strivectin-ev face dark spot and I can see a change in both my under eye area and my facial skin. It is definitely lightening both areas, and I've tried almost everything on the market for my dark circles. It's been six weeks now, but slow and steady wins the race.

love this

I will be purchasing a full size of this in the future. I can see a difference. Dark circles have seemed to disappear so I'm hoping with continued use they will fade more and more.

I have had dark circles since I was a little girl. They are genetic, my mother has them too and no amount of water or sleep or change in eating habits has helped. I have seen this product on the market for a while but could never justify the high cost. So once I accumulated enough BB points to cut the cost significantly, I went for it.

I experienced the same eye watering and stinging that others have, but it's gone down significantly. I have been using for several months, and I'm noticing some decrease in darkness. But not nearly enough to forego under eye concealer. I just don't know if it's actually doing enough to justify buying another one after this runs out. With a face of normal makeup my circles looks fine, but if I have a late-night they are just about what they used to be. Along with this, I've gotten higher-quality concealer and learned how to apply it like a pro, so I also don't know if it's the makeup or the corrector helping me!

I won't outright say don't buy it, but I haven't seen enough amazing results to completely recommend it.

Great deal- and real results

Now, the results won't be there immediately, but then again, the wrinkles and dark circles didn't just suddenly appear one day. i've used this daily for about 3 weeks, and can see a difference- will definitely keep going. Good skin texture. Also, i dab it on a spot on my face, and it is fading.

seeing an improvement

This is one of the first eye creams that i have used that i am actually seeing results from. It has taken about 2 weeks but the circles under my eyes are noticable lighter.

I have been using this for a little over two weeks and can already see a difference! My dark circles are slowly fading and my eyes are so much brighter! Must have - A+++

Love it so far!

I have definitely seen an improvement in the color of my under eye skin. This product is smooth and silky and a small dab goes a long way!

Works a little, stings eyes

This product smells really nice, and is easy to apply. It does seem to have a visible effect. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and have noticed a change. However, for the half hour or so after I apply it, my eyes sting like they're dry/tired and water like crazy. I have to wait to apply makeup due to the tearing up. If I'm really careful to pat it on lower, and let it dry before moisturizing, I can mostly avoid this, but it is a pain as that isn't the only area where I want it to do its thing.

High Hopes

I've been using this product for about a week after deciding to make the purchase based on the great reviews.

I use it faithfully twice a day, and have been for about a week. I definitely have some moments where it makes my eyes burn, but it's not severe enough to stop using the product. I'm hoping that I'll get a little more used to it as I continue.

I feel like I may have noticed a subtle difference thus far, and am excited to see the "two week difference." In fact, I am wishing that I had taken a "before" picture to see what the difference is.

Worth a Try

I got this because the reviews were so promising. I'm only about 3 days into the 2-week treatment, but I will not give up. My eyes burn a little, but I think that's just because they're sensitive. Hoping that will subside after a week or two. Looking forward to seeing my dark circles diminish!
