The promise

This product promises to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness by smoothing out the contour of the eye, stimulating microcirculation of the area and relieving skin congestion.

How it works

Story continues below advertisement

Three active ingredients – ash-bark extract, vitamin B3 and organic silicon – work together to address puffiness, dark circles and sagging. The ash-bark extract decreases the permeability of blood capillaries, thus addressing dark shadows, while the vitamin B3 restores normal blood flow in capillaries to prevent dark circles and decrease puffiness. The organic silicon provides strength and flexibility to connective tissues to keep the area tight and smooth.

How to use it

Gently pat product under your eyes in the morning before makeup application and at night before bed.

The bottom line

My complicated relationship with sleep often results in under-eye bags that could rival a Louis Vuitton duffel. And this product definitely helped with those – within minutes of applying it, I could see the duffels shrinking to mere pochettes. But I also have natural dark circles under my eyes, a quality a guy at a party once called exotic (um, yeah) and the Reversa didn't do anything to reverse those. Overall, I think it's a good eye cream but it won't replace your concealer.

$35 at Shoppers Drug Mart and PharmaPrix.
