I have used Bright I for a month.  I have not noticed it doing anything to my  under eyes.  How long does it take before you see the benefits of this?  I have read all good things about it, but I am still waiting.

You may end up not seeing any results. I have no doubt that the Bright-I will improve the health of the skin in the area you are using it, but it cannot do anything for factors like bone structure, which affects the way your eyes look.
In any case, one month is not long enough to give up on actives. The least I would give it is 2 months.

I am using Bright - I cream too, just started.  So far I like it.  I have only used it for three days now.  What I want to achieve is improvement on my dark circles.  I have dark circles that look like I have been hit in the eyes.  Bad ones.  Mostly on the inner eye area towards the bridge of my nose.  They have gotten much worse as I have gotten older.  And I would like to see the skin around my eyes perk up, look fresh and young.  I am hoping for firmer skin, not such fragile looking skin.  Oh and the skin on my eyelids to smooth out so that I can wear the shimmery eyeshadows. 

My goal - to be makeup optional.  Not to have to wear concealer on my eyes if I don't want to.

Well, dark circles can have many reasons some which may not improve without some type of medical intervention, and even that does not always work. A derm or PS will tell you that dark circles are difficult to "cure".

Some causes:

Illness and/or fatigue.

Allergies can cause dark circles. All the eye cream on earth won't help with that.

Heredity, again, if circles run in your family then eye cream is likely not going to make a huge difference. Some ethnicities (those of Mediterranean heritage) often have hyper-pigmented areas beneath the eyes. Eye creams may or may not help with this hyper-pigmentation, but not dramatically.

Natural aging and/or bone structure as Hannah mentioned. When you age, your eyes tend to "hollow" somewhat causing what is called "tear troughs". This process causes shadows which cause the "appearance" of dark circles. Your orbital rim projects more as you lose fat under your eyes, causing shadows, causing the "appearance" of circles.

Blue vascularity below the eyes (blue veins) won't be affected by eye creams.

So, as you can see there are a great many reasons for dark circles beneath the eyes. Some may/may not be helped by medical intervention (visit your derm for his/her input) and others can be helped by eye creams-depending on what caused the circles in the first place. If yours are not improving, or don't in the coming weeks, you may wish to visit your doctor/derm.

well golly!  I think it is partly hereditary however....they have gotten worse since i have gotten older.  So I wonder if thinning of skin could make them look worse?  owell...I will keep using it anyhow cuz ig is good for my skin around the eye.  Dark circles or not!  Sooooooo thank you anyhoo.

With age, skin in that area gets thinner, one of the problems the Bright-I tries to correct.

Exactly Hannah, I am using it and am looking forward to that correction.  Nice plump and juicy skin.

I failed to mention I've used Bright-I for nearly two years. I love it and it's done a great job for me. LMC has helped under my eyes a great deal as well.

Honestly, can't think of a SAS product that has not helped my skin in one way or another. Healthy skin=good/better skin.

Maybe we can call SAS The Fountain of Youth. 

I am so glad that I found this place.  I had been using "Skinn Cosmetics" brand of skin care and it helped me out somewhat.  One year ago my skin, especially my face was having such problems.  Rediculously dry, rough, horrible, red, tight, irritated.  It was awful and no matter what I used it just was terrible until I used Skinn olive and enzyme cleanser and their moisturizer.  But it took care of my skin to a certain point and that was it.  I had ordered thier lip plumper and it was supposed to inflate my lips and make them so plump and it did no such thing.  I am tenacious, tenacity is my middle name, and I went through 2 containers of their plumper with the ogliopeptides and my lips were still dry and not in the least bit plumper.  Well I then got some other anti aging serums and what not and used them for a couple months to my disapointment.  And then I found SAS!! hurray!!!  Hurray for Hannah and Jonatan!!!!!!  And all of you wonderful folks in the forum!!!!!!!!  I really believe that this is the ticket.
