Turns out it’s a combination of internal and external action. Internally, vitamin K has been shown in studies to strengthen capillary walls, preventing the bruised look that’s actually the root cause of undereye circles. Externally, it’s tricks of light and shade. The serum contains tiny particles of silica and mica, the same elements used to make glitter. With their super-reflective properties, the minerals bounce light back from the skin, camouflaging shadows.

Now, I gotta say I was startled when I saw the price on this product; $72 is steep, no doubt about it. But the bottle is good-sized, and you need just a teeny tiny amount; I use about three drops per eye, if that. I’ve been using this serum daily for three months and still have more than half the bottle left. And I’ll be replacing it when it’s gone, you can be sure of that. Since the other 20 eye creams my sisters and I have tested have cost an average of $30 each, and none has done what I hoped, I consider this a bargain.
