I am becoming increasingly intrigued by DIY solutions to skincare. I don't mean slicing up a cucumber. I am referring to getting hold of raw ingredients that are known to work and making your own potions. So when I heard that you can send your under eye bags packing with something called Eyeliss, I immediately wanted to know more.

Eyeliss, which can be bought for $7 is a concoction of the actives that you would expect to find in a $100 cream, such as Hylexin. In a base of water and Glycerin, there is hesperidin methyl chalcone, steareth-20, dipeptide-2 and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7.

Hesperidin is a flavenoid found in citrus fruits and it strengthens capillaries (the idea is that they would then leak less - the cause of dark circles). Dipeptide-2 improves lymphatic drainage so that bags are diminished. Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 is an antioxidant and one of the peptides that forms matrixyl 3000.

I can't find any clinical trials about these ingredients individually or in combination. However, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence suggesting Eyeliss works. Anyway, for seven bucks, it has to be worth a try. Don't use it neat: Eyeliss is formulated to be added to a base cream.

    At the time of this posting, Eyeliss has been discontinued and I can not find it at Lotioncrafters or Does anyone have alternative suggestions for a depuffer additive?? Would love to hear them if you do!

    Hi Marta,

    Would any base cream or moisturizer work, or are there certain ones we have to mix it with, or avoid? I heard if we mix the wrong ingredients or chemicals, some can turn poisonous or toxic? If so, would you just recommend that we buy Dermaradiant, which I think has eyeliss? I'm not sure if the concentration is strong enough though.
