Let's start with a quick primer on the different things that can happen under your eyes. First, you can have bags from things like fluid retention or seasonal allergies. You can have dark circles that are caused by vascular issues or hyperpigmentation. Or you can have fine lines and crepiness caused by dryness, sun damage, or aging that you might want to help plump up. Every situation calls for a different remedy, and this particular cream is best for fine lines and plumping. It has a thick, traditional eye cream consistency that goes on and hydrates deeply. While it works for all skin types, it's particularly helpful for those with dryness who are beginning to develop fine lines or crepiness.

Here's how it works: By utilizing a hexapeptide to repair damaged skin cells and hault the proliferation of cellular aging process as well as an octopeptide to help relax expression lines and reduce the depth of wrinkles, this cream targets aging at the surface and far below it to assist immediately and in the long term. It also contains lime pearl, which is a source of alpha-hydroxy acid that helps you resurface your undereyes if you have pigmentary dark circles. All the while, the cream is also packed with hydrating ingredients like panthenol and glycerin that help to pack moisture into the eye area.

For some, just the application process is spa-like. “In terms of overall spa-like experience, this is my new favorite part of my entire skincare routine,” one reviewer wrote. “The metal applicator is so cooling and heavenly. It takes me to that peaceful happy place when I glide the applicator under my eyes.”

Apply to clean and dry skin using the cooling applicator wand. Glide the applicator over the orbital bone that surrounds year eye, then pat product into dry skin—a little really goes a long way here, so opt for less is more. Gently press around the eye to encourage microcirculation. And remember to use it daily ahead of bed for best results.

BTW: Here's some intel about under eyes from a derm:
