Have you learned about something totally new and then suddenly you start hearing about it or seeing it everywhere? It’s actually called the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon and it’s exactly what we experienced in the last two months as we were sent two different eye-brightening creams from two different companies and both work. (Read our review of Instytutum here.)

Iluma Intense brightening eye crème by Image Skincare has a luxurious feel and lovely, lightly citrusy smell, and after using it for about a month we are elated to report Iluma not only reduced our dark circles, it also tightened the lines around our eyes. The crème is Paraben free and wears well under makeup, too.

We had been recommended Image Skincare products by two different estheticians and had been using the Prevention+ daily hydrating moisturizer SPF 30 daily for months with great results, so we were thrilled to see the Iluma Intense brightening eye crème is also a winner.

Image Skincare products are exclusively available in spas, salons, and medical offices, but the site provides a handy locator to help you find a place to purchase.

We’ve tried dozens of products to combat our dark circles and had honestly given up hope, but Iluma Intense brightening eye crème really delivers on the Image Skincare brand promise to Age Later.
