Does Vitamin K (Auriderm) work for under eye dark circles?

Dr Irwin, what do you think of Auriderm for undereye dark circles. As always thanks for your caring and insight. Arleene

I wish!   We’ve tested 3 so far in our office (but not this one) and so far none of them have done much.   There may be a very small difference, but we are all so subjective about our skin that it’s hard to know.    The evidence for these Vitamin K creams in real humans is weak.

In my opinion, spending your money on a good eye cream, eyelid sunscreen, a concealer and for a laser – the Fraxel Dual FDA approved eyelid tip, would be better.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
