My review: this is a good product; it absorbs very quickly, and it hydrates the skin around that is really dry. In that sense it did a good job.
On the brightening part I didn’t see much of a difference on my dark circles and to be fair, it is very difficult for a product to help dramatically on dark circles, They can help but never erase, unless if you are doing a treatment like laser, for examples.
So, to be fair I was not expecting a major change on my dark circles, but maybe some brightness a least a little bit.
Overall is a good product, but as a normal eye mositurizer. nothing more.
