No putting it off — my review. First, thank you for this opportunity!

I am a Truth in Aging reader who has been using an eye care product called Your Best Face Correct ($150 in the shop). The last of my YBF's Correct left the pump last night. I've been using this product for four weeks. The tiny pump measured out exact portions for each eye like a champ, and never failed me — as it had an earlier sampler. What I might miss most is that burst of scent I absorbed and savored. (Although I think it's intended to be unscented.) I found it utterly comforting — that scent.

The nitty-gritty: I have 57-year-old eyes that inherited in part the Polish dark circles my mother had her entire life. I've never seriously (trust me, I 'have' tried — just not on this kind of economically unattainable plateau) tried to treat them, thus, believing nothing could be done.

The YBF affect is subtle at first, and best described as a soothing balm. Overnight - each night - all redness disappeared, which goes a long way to lessen the bruised look. Each day I woke to a fresher canvas, so to speak. I've watched closely for an overall lessening, and I have good/bad news. The good is just this past week — week 4 — I have seen a visible lightening of the orbital rings. Bad news, of course, is for me. My .5 oz pump has pumped its last drop of nector. I believe in time I would have been stunned with the results — I already am.

Your Best Face, you make an incredible product. And thanks to Marta, I was able reach a new plateau.

    <p>Julie, the fact that you've run out of this expensive cream that works for you makes me a little sad. I took a look at the active ingredients in YBF's eye cream. I'm not entirely sure what is in the cream that would warrant a $150 price tag, maybe the ocean of peptides they have put in the formula are some sort of magic youth elixir, but I doubt it.</p>

    <p>You could get something very close to this for a much more affordable price. Skin Actives sells a ready-to-use eye cream called Bright-I @ $17.50 for .5 oz (<a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> ). There is a lot to like about this product:</p>

    <p>* Fucoidan, (for collagen synthesis)</p>

    <p>* hesperidin methyl chalcone, a flavinoid derived from citrus like oranges and lemons. Hesperidin helps to reduce capillary permeability - which means it helps prevent the tiny blood vessels in the skin around your eyes from leaking.It is this leakage which leads to the dark bruise-like discolorations or dark circles,</p>

    <p>* a mix of small size natural active peptides (below 5,000 MW)</p>

    <p>* A variety of the usual antioxidants, including pomegranate.</p>

    <p>* Chrysin</p>

    <p>* Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) to thicken the skin around the eye and hide the blood vessels underneath</p>

    <p>* astaxanthin</p>

    <p>* lycopene</p>

    <p>* vitamin E</p>

    <p>* vitamin B</p>

    <p>* lutein</p>

    <p>* alpha lipoic acid</p>

    <p>* Glutathione</p>

    <p>* Pal-GQPR (palmitoyl tetrapeptide) </p>

    <p>The only active ingredient that seems to be missing is the spin trap, but at a savings of about $130.00, maybe you can make do. :)</p>
