A very inexpensive eye cream that provides moisture but does not lighten dark circles


Good for for general moisturizing


Does not help under-eye circles

by Cindy

I have been testing the SkinActives Bright-I Cream ($17.50) to see if anything can help my dark under-eye circles. I’m in my 50s, and I mostly like my skin; it has few wrinkles (thank you sunscreen!), is neither oily nor dry and is healthy for the most part. Those circles, though, are not good. I use concealer, and that helps a little, but the skin is a bit loose and purplish.

At first, I lavished the light cream under and around both eyes twice a day. After two weeks of not detecting any differences, I stopped the treatment on one side and just used my regular moisturizer there. The other side continued to receive the Bright-I treatment morning and night.

Bright-I cream has a pleasant texture and very little fragrance — a plus for sensitive skin. The only detectable scent was a faint but pleasant nuttiness. The cream was light but appeared to moisturize nicely. The price was extremely attractive, but the cream has tons of active ingredients: caffeine, retinyl acetate, hesperidin methyl chalcone, grape seed proanthocyanidins, hyaluronic acid, chrysin, epidermal growth factor (EGF), glutathione, Pal-GQPR (palmitoyl tetrapeptide).

So, what was the outcome?  I’m sorry to report that I still have circles under my eyes. I don’t see any difference between my “control” side (moisturizer only) and the treatment side and cannot say I recommend it for life-altering results with dark circles. I do like the cream for general moisturizing and love the very attractive price. I am going to check out SkinActives for other everyday products, because the price and quality are excellent.
