Vanilyx Eye Cream
In the morning before you have had your morning pick-me-up beverage and showered, do you ever find yourself wondering why it looks as if your eyes have sunken deeper into your face? T
hose dark circles haunt your self-esteem until you then start the mad hunt for a great lightening cream.
Vanilyx Eye Cream is a topical cream that claims to lessen the appearance of under eye puffiness and chronic dark circles by increasing circulation.
Let’s hone in on the main ingredients to see what’s going on in this product:
Vanilyx Eye Cream Ingredients
• Chrysin – Has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties which would help with under eye puffiness.
• Green Tea-A powerful antioxidant that combats free radical skin damage.
• Sunflower Seed Oil, Aloe, Cucumber Extract & Horsetail Extract- Sunflower Seed Oil is a great natural moisturizer that does not easily evaporate off the skin providing lasting moisture. Aloe and Cucumber can act as gentle conditioning agents to the skin that can also help with reducing puffiness. Horsetail has been shown to be a mild diuretic, which would also contribute to the reduction of puffiness.
The positive? Vanilyx Eye Cream has some good naturally derived ingredients that should make the product gentle and effective in regards to hydration and reducing puffiness. The negative? We could not figure out which ingredient is supposed to help with circulation to decrease the dark circles. It seems as though the product may be lacking anything particular to target the darkness, which is one of its major claims. Makes us wonder…
Vanilyx Eye Cream Safety & Testing
Safety: All the ingredients in Vanilyx Eye Cream are safe to use cosmetically. However, the product does contain parabens, which have been largely argued by many about whether they are truly safe to use or not. Got beef with parabens? Then this product may not be for you.
Testing: The manufacturer performed a double-blind clinical trial wherein more than 72% of the subjects (who suffered from chronic dark circles) saw a visible reduction in color and severity of their dark circles. We like studies even when conducted by the manufacturer and this one has good results.
Vanilyx Eye Cream Policies
We also love guarantees. The manufacturer has a 30-day what they call “no-nonsense” guarantee, where within 30 days you can return the unused product in the original packaging for a full refund.
However, the company says it takes about 4-6 weeks to really see results when using the product. So if you hold out as long as they recommend, this guarantee is void. As much as they brag this is a “no-nonsense” guarantee, we wonder what hidden rules are attached to it based on the aforementioned discrepancies.
Vanilyx Eye Cream Overall Value
You can find Vanilyx Eye Cream for about 30-40 dollars online. The product contains .85oz of cream and the company recommends you use it up to three times per day and describe the product to be very thick (so no need to apply much for effectiveness). If you really used a small amount, the product should last a month with twice daily application.
With a lack of convincing ingredients and a questionable guarantee we’d give the Vanilyx Eye Cream a pass.
