Dark Circles? Can Vita-K Professional Help?

I tried yet ANOTHER eye cream for dark circles.
After a steady stream of failures, you'd think I would give up, right?
Well, I found another one & succumbed to the siren song...promises of lightened dark circles and less wrinkles and lines to boot.
I started applying Vita-K right after I ended my testing of Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream back at the end of February.
I applied it only to my left eye so we could get a really good, accurate comparison. I applied it darn near every single morning and night, without fail. I can count the times missed on one hand. When it comes to being thorough for you guys, I pull out all the stops!
So, I applied it consistently, following the directions. I found that the cream took a while to dry and when it finally did, it was almost like hair gel that had dried on my face. It had a tight "film" effect. I did NOT like it. It also seemed to emanate a vapor that caused my eye to sting and burn mildly. This passed rather quickly, but was very annoying. Even so, I kept up the regimen faithfully. Like I said, for you guys I put forth my best efforts. Even if they are somewhat painful!
Here we are, a little over 2 months later and here are my results.
Keep in mind, as you look at my pics, my left eye (the eye I treated) will be the eye on YOUR right each time. I've given you 4 different pics, all makeup-free, all taken at the same time, so we can make sure that angles, eye position, flash/no flash, etc., doesn't give us a false interpretation of the results.

As you can see, my left eye (the right eye facing you), doesn't look one single iota better/lighter than the untreated right eye (the left eye from your perspective).
$10 down the drain.
I officially give up. I will NOT buy another dark circle eye treatment again unless a dermatologist recommends one to me, personally!

i am a man with dark circles, and ill tell you what ACTUALLY works. Gluten-free diet, lots of spinach, kale, and collard greens. and a little bit of meat every day. no topical ever worked for me. you have to solve the problem from the inside. please note, it takes months for your body to detoxify from gluten, dont get discouraged because it takes a while. BUT IT WORKS.
