No. I have fair skin too and am 25 and it did absolutely nothing. And I usually like this brand

Yes! It is a very fast acting, brightening, cooling, and moisturizing gel. I have the same issue and its great for me.

answer 3
Yes. Try this gel, especially if you are sensitive. If you are not sensitive and need more de-puff action than this gel provides, also try the Clarins Eye Revive Beauty Flash.

I, like you, have fair skin and dark circles (have had them most of my life), but I am 34, not under 20. This is a WONDERFUL product, and I've tried many. MANY, MANY, MANY. It won't take them away completely, but it sure does make a huge difference. I went for a month without it and could most certainly tell the difference!!!! ;)

No anti aging for you, just concealer in a peachy color.

answer 6
I would say no, you don't need anti-aging as that's more for wrinkles. The Ren Active 7 would be perfect for what you describe though (puffiness and dark circles)...

answer 7
Yes. I am in my early 20's with fair skin as well and I use this product for it's brightening (I have dark circles as well). It is not super moisturizing so if you feel like you need something with a lot of moisture this may not be for you. However, if you are more concerned with dark circles this may be a good option. It doesn't get rid of dark circles completely but it did lighten mine a bit over time.

Sounds like your circles are hereditary or caused by allergies. You may have a hard time finding a product, but this one helped me.

I'm 23 and filpino so I'm lucky to have youthful looking skin. Since you don't have any eye problems I don't think you need eye cream just yet. Eye cream is a bit expensive & if I didn't have puffiness & occassional dryness on my lids from eyeshadow (which is why I use eye cream) then I would rather spend my money on skin products. When you get dark circles or other problems you can start using eye cream and concealer and what not. But I don't use concealer under my eye because I don't need to. Even when I've gone to get my makeup done the artists tell me I don't need concealer. So when I buy products I think: Tackle the basics. Skin care first, makeup last.

Since most eye product do nothing, this one does several things well! It will brighten your entire eye area, however, nothing I've every tried removes dark circles completely. Your concealer will work better. You'll look refreshed and well rested. I know you don't have puffiness, but it is nothing short of a miracle for this problem.

Can I use this gel under the Lipovector Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream?
I do have dark circles under my eyes as well as fine lines. Will I get the best of both worlds (fading dark circles and fine lines) if I use both of the products at the same time?

I don't use the other product you mention, but Ren's gel is SUPER by itself, so I'd imagine you might get a bit more of what you're looking for if you use both. I layer different products on my face, but mostly try using one product around my eyes - other than retin-A on the slight crows feet. I like to see which eye product works best by using one at a time.

Yes, use this gel under your other products, you'll love the feel and it's absorbant.

answer 3
I have not yet tried Ren's cream, but I can attest that the Gel is light textured and extremely effective at brightening genetically dark under eyes. Since is it is so light, I would apply this before the cream & you will get the best cocktail of benefits: brightening and depuffing + moisturizing and anti-ageing.

I actually love to use a gel under a cream for my eyes and face, morning and night. I absolutely feel I get benefits from both. Some people tell me I use a lot of products, but I see results so that's ok with me. Besides I like going through my little morning and night rituals. I feel that this gel is probably one of the most effective eye products I've used so fay, and I've tried plenty. Enjoy and good luck!

It's slowly making my dark circles less dark (over the past two weeks, using morning and night) but I also don't have bad dark circles. On a scale from 1-10 my dark circles are around a 5 at my most exhausted.

How does this compare to Fresh Lotus eye gel?

answer 1
I believe the Fresh Lotus Eye is better for dark circles and puffiness.
This one is for fine lines, AKA signs of aging.
answered 2 years ago
answer 2
The REN Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel is very comparable to the Fresh Lotus Eye Gel. Both of these eye gels deliver similar results and they are both free of many synthetic fragrances, parabens and are very gentle.
