Kate Somerville’s CytoCell Dark Circle Corrective Eye Cream Review

Does It Correct Dark Circles of Simply Collect Your Money?

Are the dark smudges under your eyes making you look tired and old?

Are you sick of having to apply makeup every morning just to cover up those raccoon eyes? You’re not alone. It’s a problem that we all face eventually.

There are a million creams out there that claim to get rid of dark undereye circles, so what makes this one different?

We’re going to take a look at what’s in Kate Somerville’s CytoCell Dark Circle Corrective Eye Cream and what users are saying about it in order to decide if it really does brighten your undereye area and make you look fresher and younger.

What Do They Claim?

According to Kate Somerville, this is a supercream. It supposedly treats the signs of aging in your eye area by reactivating dormant stem cells.

To be precise, after 4 weeks of use, the vast majority of users in their clinical studies supposedly reported that the skin around their eyes was “dramatically more hydrated”, darkeness was significantly reduced so that skin looked brighter and lighter, and that their skin felt significantly younger. I’m not sure exactly what that last claim means, but let’s check out what’s in this eye cream that makes it special.

What’s In CytoCell?

For a change, I’m going to start with what’s NOT in it. There are no:

  • parabens
  • phthalates
  • sulfates
  • GMO’s
  • synthetic fragrances or dyes
  • petrochemicals
  • triclosan, an antibacterial that can mix with the trace amounts of chlorine in your water to form the carcinogen chloroform.

The vast majority of the ingredients in CytoCell are moisturizers, emollients, and humectants. Since one of the main causes of dark circles is lack of hydration, this may be a good thing if that’s what’s causing your problem. Citric acid’s on the list of ingredients, too. It’s often used to lighten skin.

There’s one ingredient, Pyridoxine Tris-Hexyldecnoate, that has me stumped. Pyridoxine is a form of vitamin B6 and decnoate is an ingredient that body builders use to stimulate protein synthesis that builds lean muscle mass. Hexyl is a compound of hydrogen and carbon. The chemical isn’t listed anywhere in any of my databases other than as an ingredient in CytoCell, so I’m not sure what to say about it.

There is one component that’s been accepted as a proven anti-aging ingredient by the NCBI, an American biochemical governing agency. Trials prove that tetrahydroxypropyl ethylenediamine (THPE) actually reduces signs of aging by lifting your skin and improving radiance and firmness. However, the trials were conducted with a 2.5% concentration and we don’t know for sure how much is in this product. It’s the 12th ingredient, which puts in about 1/3 of the way down the list.

Finally, there are a few different tints and light refractors in CytoCell that may immediately reduce the appearance of dark circles by simply covering them up or providing an illusion of brightness.

What Are Users Saying?

Reviews on the actual ability of this product to eliminate dark spots are a little mixed. Most people say that it helped at least some, but there are a few who report no improvement at all. Considering the fact that there are so many causes for dark eye circles, that’s not surprising.

People are pretty much universally satisfied with the moisturizing ability of CytoCell. They also say that it does make your skin feel firmer and look better.

Final Word

I wasn’t particularly prepared to like this cream because the ingredients in it, for the most part, are only moisturizers and softeners, plus I’m always suspicious when there are patented secret ingredients or ones that I can’t identify. It appears, though, that people really like it, and since it does have the THPE in it, it may be worth a try.
