Now obviously this product is not cheap. However, it is a cult product that significantly improves dull eyes. As it contains vitamin C, it fights hyperpigmentation. It also makes the under-eye area brighter right after application because it contains light-reflecting ingredients like titanium dioxide. However, it’s more of a cosmetic thing that goes away once you wash off the cream. But over time, dull eyes look more radiant as the antioxidant benefits of vitamin C help refresh the skin.
