Are you one of the many women who are tired of looking tired? Under eye bags and dark circles can be unsightly and, quite frankly, embarrassing.
We speak from experience as many of us here at BES suffer from dark under eye circles. It seems no matter what we do, they are always there.
You can sleep more, try to better hydrate your eyes, even give natural under eye remedies a shot, but in the end nothing works better then the daily application of an under eye cream.
That’s why when someone mentioned a new product called Vivexin specifically made for under eye circles, our ears perked up.
We also decided to add it to our comparison list of the top eye creams and currently it sits at #3.
If there is a solution to dark under eye circles, we want it. So we combed the web for information, learning as much as we could.
What we found was interesting. So let’s get into it…
What Is Vivexin?
Contrary to popular belief, under eye circles are not caused by being tired or stressed. In fact they are caused by capillaries that leak blood close to the skin’s surface.
When this blood starts to oxidize, it turns a dark red colour, similar to an ugly bruise. Since the skin under our eyes is so thin and translucent, it easily shows the damage which then appears on our face as dark under eye circles. Not a pretty sight.
Through our research, we found that Vivexin helps to solve this issue through it’s powerful formula that combines clinical ingredients and botanical extracts which helps to maintain capillary strength as well as microcirculation.
Ultimately this eye cream helps to diminish the appearance of dark under eye circles by treating your skin at the root of it’s problem.
Like most under eye products it also contains ingredients to help de-puff the area under your eyes as well as incorporating in the use of Matrixyl a common ingredient used to promote collagen production that supposedly can help fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does Vivexin Work?
Essentially Vivexin is comprised of a few powerful ingredients that help to not only lighten any dark circles, but also help to erase fine lines and wrinkles, on top of eliminating any puffiness around the eyes.
Similar to Hydrolyze, Haloxyl is one of the ingredients found in Vivexin that helps to reduce dark circles. It does this by helping to strengthen the capillaries around your eyes to help reduce the leakage of blood.
It also uses natural enzymes to break down the existing dark pigmentation under your eyes, leaving them looking refreshed slightly more refreshed and awake.
Eyeliss is another key ingredient found in Vivexin which helps to reduce any under eye puffiness you may have. It does this by strengthening the veins and capillaries found under the eye that may leak fluid, as well as promoting the drainage of any fluid that may collect under unknowingly.
It also contains properties related to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, however not a lot of testing has been conducted to determine whether or not this is true.
The final main ingredient found in Vivexin skin care is called Matrixyl(mentioned earlier) which helps to provide your skin with specific proteins that help to encourage the production of collagen.
This ultimately helps to erase any remaining under eye lines and wrinkles which can make you look far older than you are.
Although on paper these ingredients seem highly effective, not a lot of testing has been done to ensure results can be given when combining them together into one remedy.
Which leads us to talk about some of the problems with this eye cream…
What Vivexin Cannot Do
We combed the web and read countless Vivexin reviews to find certain skin issues that this product couldn’t fix.
In one Vivexin review (written by a recent customer) they found that while Vivexin did an excellent job in treating her specific under eye issues like dark circles and puffyness, it tended to cause a surprising amount of dryness as well.
This wasn’t the only time we came across someone who mentioned similar effects.
This lead us to believe that the combination of ingredients used in this cream does cause a certain level of dehydration in your skin and therefore should only be used spareingly AND better should be supplemented with another moisturizer.
On The Other Hand, We Did See Some Positive Vivexin Reviews
I use it every day
“I found it by accident, but it turns out to be some great stuff – my eyes look much better now! It also fights wrinkles really well without any no sides effects, this is way above my expectations. I use this in the mornings and when I want to refresh my eyes from fatigue or lots of reading. I have also tried some other products but they didn’t work overall as good as Vivexin – just love it!” -

Dark Circles are gone!
“I was using another way too expensive eye cream before and had good results but I was tired of spending so much money on each bottle. My friend told me about this product as she was liking her results so. I switched to try it out. I was very impressed with the serum and how smooth it went on and dried. This did everything the more expensive cream did and was a fraction of the cost. Very happy with eye revival and will continue to use it.” -

While no cream or serum is perfect for every single person, we did find Vivexin to be an effective way of fighting under eye problems.
From reading countless Vivexin reviews, the majority of people did see fairly good results after a short amount of time, BUT the majority also were affected by dehydration around their eyes, a side effect of the remedy perhaps?
Would we buy Vivexin?
At this stage there are better options out there for under eye treatment and most importantly at a cheaper price. There’s also been some rumors circulation about problems people have been having when attempting to get a refund.
Plus what they don’t mention very well on the site is that once you pay using your credit card, they keep the information and bill you $80 for every month until you physically call them to cancel.
If you are to make a purchase, we’d recommend you give them a call first and ask them exactly what is involved in their 90 day return policy and what you need to do to get out of their rebilling cycle if you’re not happy with the results.
All-in-all a mediocre eye cream which is why we rated at #3 in our list of top eye creams.
