Treating dark circles under the eyes can be an extremely trying problem. Whether from lack of sleep, genetics, illness or any number of other factors, dark circles can be the most stubborn appearance issue that one can face, and they affect both men and women alike. Products designed to treat these dark circles, like Hydrolyze, are thankfully quite abundant. Like any other product, however, some creams for dark circles are more effective than others.
Hydrolyze is a cream designed to treat the dark circles that appear under the eyes when blood vessels and capillaries leak, causing puffiness and a bruised appearance to that delicate skin. The makers of Hydrolyze claim that their product will repair these damage vessels, stopping the leakage of blood beneath the thin layer of skin, completely erasing puffiness and dark circles. A number of other products make the same claims as Hydrolyze, and very few are able to actually back it up with noticeable, lasting results.
As with any other kind of product applied directly to the skin, analysis of the ingredients in Hydrolyze is necessary not only for safety purposes, but also for effectiveness. There are some ingredients, like chrysin and Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3 that immediately signal the savvy consumer that the product is well equipped to battle dark circles. As for the ingredients in Hydrolyze, however, there are few that trigger such a reaction.
The two main active ingredients in Hydrolyze are middle of the road, especially when it comes to the treatment of dark circles. Matrixyl 3000, for example, has been shown to have a positive effect in anti-aging products in general, but the problem of dark circles under the eyes is extremely specific and best handled not by general ingredients, but by those tested and proven to be effective in the treatment of the delicate skin under the eyes.
Consumers who would like to give Hydrolyze a shot can take advantage of the free trial offered on the manufacturer's website. For the cost of shipping and handling, two jars of Hydrolyze plus a free bonus gift will be sent out to test for 30 days. At the end of the 30 days, if you are not pleased with the reduction in dark circles beneath your eyes, you can return any unused product for a refund, minus shipping and handling fees both ways. If you do nothing, or do not return the product with the 30 day window, you will be charged the full price of $70, and a new jar of Hydrolyze, along with a new $70 charge, will be sent every month.
There are two components to treating dark circles. The first is reducing swelling and puffiness, and the second is stopping the slight blood leakage that causes the bruised appearance. While Hydrolyze does contain popular anti-aging ingredient Matrixyl 3000, it does not contain any ingredients that adequately address the two causes of dark circles. As a product specifically marketed as a solution for dark circles, Hydrolyze is a failure.
