DHC Eye Bright is the best product I’ve found for puffiness and dark circles. And when I say “best”, I mean it’s better than the others I’ve tried, which have done absolutely nothing for me.
I’ve tried super expensive stuff, cheap stuff, homemade recipes I’ve found online. The turmeric and pineapple juice paste was particularly unsuccessful. It dyed the area under my eye yellowish-green, so I looked like I’d been punched, which I guess at least deflected attention away from my dark circles.
DHC is a somewhat quirky, Japanese company. Besides skin care products, their catalog contains random items like porridge, vitamin supplements and recipes for tofu and vegetable stir-fry. (Maybe I just like them because they make me feel focused and succinct by comparison.)
They're extremely generous with their samples. You can choose 4 free samples with each order and God knows I would spend any amount of money for free samples. (Yes, I too see the irony.)
And Inside the catalog, glued to the pages, you’ll find yet more free samples. They’re kind of like the Santa Claus of skin care (and porridge and supplements).
Eye Bright, a DHC top sellers, contains cooling cucumber, de-puffing caffeine and brightening licorice.
When I applied it around one eye, that eye definitely felt refreshed and the puffiness was reduced so much, that my other eye felt like it belonged to a drunken sea captain by comparison.
Argh. Matt Groening is going to sue you for using this image, assface.
Dark circles? Uhhhhh. Let me just say mine are bad. This did brighten up the area a bit and made me look more awake, but it’s not exactly the miracle I was looking for.
Yet, for some reason, I find myself reaching for this product every day, even though I have a medicine cabinet full of other under eye products. So I’m going to defer to my subconscious on this one and apparently it gives Eye Bright a thumbs up.
Turn Around, Eye Bright.
Every now and then I know there's no one in the universe as magical and wonderous as you (subconsciously).
