Himalaya Herbals Under Eye Cream Dermatocare Reviews


Himalaya Herbals Under Eye Cream has two rare herbs along with tocopherol and wheat germ oil. They might reduce pigmentation and aging changes in under eye skin with regular use as claimed on Himalaya website.

Will it work?

Himalaya Herbals Under Eye Cream has Cipadessa Baccifera or ranabili  and Winter Begonia, that might help in reducing dark circles. However, we could not find any reference for the efficacy of the 2 rare herbs in under-eye dark circles. It also has Vitamin E as tocopherol and in wheat germ oil, that can help in repairing the damaged skin and delay skin aging.
