Adding to its much-loved Vitamin C Ester collection, science-backed skincare brand Perricone MD has announced a new, supercharged formula that dramatically reduces three types of under-eye discoloration: Brown, blue, and red.

Vitamin C should be an essential part of anyone's skincare routine. Not only is it a powerhouse antioxidant that helps the skin fight free radical damage, but it also brightens the skin and and can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The trouble with Vitamin C, however, is that most products are far too irritating to be used around the delicate eye area.

Enter Vitamin C Ester CCC + Ferulic Brightening Under-Eye Cream (try saying that three times fast), which is specially formulated for use under the eye, which means you get to reap the intense benefits of Vitamin C while avoiding any irritation or discomfort. The way that it works is that three forms of Vitamin C, in addition to free radical-fighting ferulic acid, work together to visibly reduce dark brown circles, while peptides help minimize the blue appearance of under-eye puffiness and bags caused by poor circulation and fluid drainage. In addition, biomimetic oat protein visibly reduces redness triggered by allergies and inflammation, leaving the delicate eye area feeling calmed and comforted.

"We had tremendous success with the launch of our Vitamin C Ester CCC + Brightening Complex 20%, which inspired us to innovate in other segments," said Chief Marketing Officer Robert Koerner via a press release. "The Vitamin C Ester CCC + Ferulic Brightening Under Eye Cream is the ideal complementary product to the face serum using a multitude of powerful ingredients to deliver proven and effective results against one of the most prominent eye concerns."

In addition to being backed by science, there are also consumer studies that speak to the product's efficacy: After 28 days, 89% saw firmer-looking skin, 87% saw brighter, more radiant skin, and 87% saw improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
