Katherine Heigl's Secret Under-Eye Treatment

05/17/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

Whether fresh-faced in her scrubs as Grey’s Anatomy’s doctor Izzy Stevens or turning heads on the red-carpet, Katherine Heigl always makes me envious of her flawless skin and rested-looking eyes. Her secret? Hylexin, an advanced formula that breaks down the dark pigments in the skin that cause chronic under-eye circles. As someone that is genetically predisposed to terrible dark circles and never gets enough sleep, I am always skeptical of eye creams that promise miracles, but Hylexin actually worked! After just one week, my eyes were brighter, skin was firmer and no puffiness. Of course Hylexin doesn’t come cheap- $95 a tube- but the benefits are worth it and the small amount needed in a single application make it last longer. Buy Hylexin at sephora.com. If you don’t want to spend the money, try Oil of Olay’s Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream, $19, at cvs.com. Tell us: Do you have a secret under-eye treatment?Andrea DeSimone

I was desperate to try and get rid of my under-eye circles. I’m only 22 and I’ve had them for over 8 years now so, I bought this stuff. IT DOESN’T work. I’ve been usong in for months, twice a day and nothing. Don’t waste your money!

I’ve had great results with the Neutrogena Copper eye cream. This and the Oil Of Olay Complete have worked wonders for my skin. Been using both for several years. I’m 30 and am constantly asked if I am 21 or a college student.

I have tried the product hylexin and was really disapointed , I followed the directions used it every night and it did nothing for my dark circles under my eyes . I have too say it was a total waste of money .

To all you girls with dark circles, I have tried every single products that comes out saying that dark circles will
disappear in a wink of any eye, but this is false. But this
is my secret it cost about a dollar and its NYC cover stick
number 785A it’s green and this really works for my dark circles give it a try and you won’t break the bank. Yvonne

Ladies don’t worry I’ve got the answer, i’m 40 and everyone thinks I’m 25, I don’t get sucked into the cosmetic industry, but i got a sample of fastcripition by Patricia WexlerM.D. it’s no-injection instant line filler for eyes and lips at bath and body and boy does it work for dark circles I went back and bought a tube for $17.50 and this tube goes a long way you just use a little bit.

There is a new product that I have become hooked on. It is called Ocean Actives Topical Deep Water Squalane it costs $32 for a 2fl oz bottle, which lasts 2-3 months because it is highly concentrated and a little does go a long way. After one week of using it, my skin actually glowed. Under eye circles gone, fine lines and wrinkles gone, blemishes gone. My skin has never been this healthy! I tried it just by chance through a free sample in the mail, and I was so shocked at the results, I immediately ordered it. I think it is only available on line, but they offered free shipping for the first order. It has been My miracle in a bottle.Go to drlark.com and see for yourself.
