It takes a high level of confidence for a company to have Truth In Aging review its products. The Truth in Aging community is smart, savvy and widely varied in focus, so I have a lot of respect for Veris from the start. Bravely and generously going where many, many other brands would never venture to go. Veris is so confident in its products that its website offers a 60 day money back guarantee.

Eyes are the mirrors to our soul and it's our eyes that convey to others, not communicated in words, so much about us. Our age can't be concealed by our eyes, but the skin around them can validate what they divulge, or, call them lairs! I'm in search of products that will do the latter. When a topical 'fountain of youth' cream is created, I'm certain it'll be an eye cream.

A full size bottle of Veris Youth Restoring Eye Cream with Vitamin K arrived and I was a little disappointed that the label looked like it had been printed on a home inkjet printer instead of being commercially printed. I do forgive their labeling, since the ingredients in this eye cream are so worthy. Key ingredient vitamin K, dermatologists have found, to be successful in the treatment of dark circles, facial bruises and under eye puffiness. Hydrolyzed rice bran protein, soy peptides and oxido reductases are similar to those make up REGU®-AGE, which is supposed to reduce inflammation, dark circles and under-eye puffiness. Arnica montana or wolfs bane has been used since the 1500's to reduce inflammation and heal wounds. With these, you can see that one of the primary purposes of this cream is to reduce puffiness, darkness and inflammation. Its other purpose is to hydrate and moisturize which it does with jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, squalane, hyaluronic acid and oil of kumquat.

This cream does accomplish what it sets out to do. I've used this fluffy, lightly scented cream every night for 6 weeks and the bags under my eyes look much flatter in the mornings now then they used to upon waking. Richer eye creams used at night will often hydrate my bags, making me wake up a bit puffy, but Veris does the opposite. I don't have dark circles, so I can't speak about how well it reduces darkness, but many of its ingredients are supposed to work on this as well. Veris absorbs immediately leaving the area around your eyes refreshed and hydrated. On a score of 1 to 10, I'd give this cream a 7. If you’re needing a lot of hydration without increasing bag puffiness, and (darkness reduction), this mid-priced cream at $42.50 for .5 oz. of quality ingredients, with a money back guarantee, is definitely worth a try. It took about 5-6 weeks before I saw noticeable results, so do give Veris time to work for you, before you scrutinize.

Thank you again Veris for generously giving your products to TIA for review. I’d say you’ve made a very nice and effective eye cream at an affordable price!

    Thanks for the CSI cost savings post Marta! I'll be ordering the CSI (do a lot of shopping at Vitacost already) and see if it compares. Half the price at $21.75??!!

    Hi everyone, the real issue with Veris is that I discovered (after sending samples out for review) they use formulas that are exactly the same as those by CSI - and CSI at Vitacost is cheaper! Here are the ingredients for CSI Recovery Eye Cream With Vitamin K on sale for $21.75:
    Purified water, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, squalane, hyaluronic acid, arnica montana, vitamin K1 (phytonadione), oxido reductases, soy peptide, hydrolyzed rice bran extract, laureth-7, C13-14 isoparaffin, polyacrylamide, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin and oil of kumquat.

    I'm always watching and reading the eye cream reviews- Junko, this one of yours is no exception. But as bags aint my thang... forgive me... *cough* I have heard good things regarding Vit K around the eye area, though. Good price on this Veris gel. ~jk

    L, Deborah & Susan ~ Thank you for your kind words, we're all in this together! Trying to weed out what's worth buying and what's NOT. Left out that this cream is not for purists. Laureth-7, Polyacrylamide, Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin each have hazard ratings of 3 in the Environmental Working Groups Cosmetic Safety Database (toxicity/irritants). Veris could do better by replacing these with better. L, I think this is the best night cream I've used so far for keeping my bags at a minimum upon waking. It did take 5 weeks before I started seeing this. If you'd of asked me prior to that, I'd of told you that this cream does nothing. Don't forget * 60 Day Money Back Guarantee. Leaves you 2 weeks to return it if you don't see results in 6! Fat deposits yes, but my fat pockets can be smaller or larger maybe due to inflammation/hydration/water retention? Maybe it's the inflammation reducing ingredients? I'm almost out of Veris and at a cross-roads. This is good enough that I want to continue, but just read in People Magazine Kate Gosselin's raves of Ole Henriksen Ultimate Eye Lift Gel. Anyone try this one? I'm curious if it's as good as she said it is.

    I wonder what ingredient helps reduce undereye bags, as these are fat deposits. Oh well, who's to question it if it works! :-)

    Thanks for a good review, Junko. Also, I appreciate the warning to be patient before seeing results--not my strong suit.

    Hi L, its actually Junko's review but it defaulted to my byline when published, I've changed it now - so kudos can be directed to the correct author. Sorry about that Junko.
