Reviva Labs #Skincare Part 2: Under-Eye Dark Circle Serum #Review

Welcome to Part 2 of the Reviva Labs Skincare instalments. If you are just joining us now, check out part 1 too. Today, we are going to review the Under-Eye Dark Circle Serum.

With my lifestyle and the profession I've thrown myself into, sleep really doesn't happen. When I get any sleep, I gladly take it. Unfortunately, that means I suffer from the Panda Eye Syndrome. The wonderfully pigmented dark circles under my eyes and the puffiness that comes along with it. What to do?

The Under-Eye Dark Circle Serum offered a potential solution. Apparently, the source of dark circles was due to capillary leakage of hemoglobin and its breakdown products, bilirubin and iron. With their innovative formula that is a combination of 4 ingredients:
  1. Chrysin -stimulates an enzyme to clear and eliminate bilirubin
  2. Hydroxysuccinimide -Makes iron soluble so that it can be eliminated
  3. 2 peptides which help to avoid future capillary leakage and protect against further discoloration
The result? No more dark circles. It also reduces puffiness and protects against future discoloration. It can be used as a drop or two in the morning alone or under makeup and at night alone or under eye cream. I found that one drop was more than sufficient.

I'm sure you're wondering if it works. I've been using it for a little over a week now and my puffiness is gone. My dark circles have definitely gotten lighter and trust me, I haven't been sleeping any more than usual. I've actually been getting less. The only thing you have to be careful of is getting the serum into your eyes. I have a bad habit of rubbing my eyes and accidentally did so shortly after I used the serum. It stings so be careful.

Before (After the 1st application)
My puffiness is over the top!
After (Puffiness gone, circles fading)
In conclusion, its an amazing product. Within a week, the puffiness I had was gone. My panda eyes are slowly disappearing. I really look forward to the results in another several weeks. Purchase these products here. Stay tuned for Part 3: The Giveaway!

Hmm...maybe I'll try it. Too many nights up blogging is puffing up my eyes big time. ;)

That is one great product to banish those 'panda eyes'. Mine cycle through depending upon how much sleep I manage to get. But, more often than not I've got circles.

I definitely need to give some attention to my under-eye area. Great info! Sounds like a good product.

I have always been told that 'panda eyes' run in my Dad's side of the family. But what I hate is that they make me look and tired. I am a nightowl trying to convert to a morning person. So far its not working so well. I will be staying tuned as I think it would be a neat product to try.

I always have dark circles under my eyes - I call them raccoon eyes. I think that I would really like to try this. Thanks for the review.

Dark under eye circles run in my family and I have allergies that only make it worse. If this product works, I am going to become its BFF!

Unknown said...[Reply]

I definitely would love to try this product. Dark circles under the eyes run in my family as well, and the allergies certainly don't help. I'm loving the comment above, I'd be BFF with this stuff it if works, too! I am so tired of hearing "are you tired? you look tired!"... and that's from my own mother!

I have been looking for something for my dark circles. They tend to be worse according to my amount of sleep but regardless, I always notice them when I look at pictures of myself.

I haven't tried anything yet for my dark circles. I've tried to ignore them and tell myself that I don't care if I look tired and worn down, but now that I'm in my 30's, I think I might try this serum. Especially seeing your results...

I love Becky's comment about 'panda eyes'! I have only recently begun to notice that phenomenon appearing under my eyes...and I hate it! I would LOVE to try something that would slow them down or even get rid of them completely! Thanks for your review!

Sleeping more...I haven't really tried getting rid of them ~,~''

I've tried everything... Let me just say that concealer is not my friend anymore! ;P

Missy L said...[Reply]

This product would be perfect for me. I've tried lots of concealers and nothing helps.

Tried make up and concealers, but it could be better. Cheryl

Jessica Peeling said...[Reply]

I have only used makeup to try and cover up the circles, but I haven't actually used anything that removes them

I have really dark circles and have tried many products! Would love to find one that really works.
