Jar Packaging:Yes
Tested on animals:Yes

Power K Eye Rescue includes several antioxidants front and center, but none of them will do much good for your skin because of the jar packaging. In addition, vitamin K isn’t a slam-dunk for dark circles, as there’s only minimal research pertaining to its benefit, not to mention its stability will be affected by the jar packaging.

This also contains arnica, and although arnica has a history of being used for bruising, it is ill-suited for use around the eye, not to mention that very few cases of dark circles are actual bruises. Last, the amount of film-forming agent (polyacrylamide) this contains may be irritating when applied around the eyes.

Brand Overview

Peter Thomas Roth At-A-Glance

Peter Thomas Roth is a large but straightforward line with mostly uncomplicated formulations that, for the most part, are quite good and state-of-the-art. Unlike many product lines, most of the acne, AHA, BHA, sunscreen, and moisturizing products contain what they should to be effective and helpful for skin.

Even more impressive are the well-formulated cleansers, sunscreens, AHA products, and skin lighteners. The moisturizers have improved somewhat, and most are now packaged so that the light- and air-sensitive ingredients remain stable. In fact, Roth's packaging deserves special mention because it is exceptionally utilitarian.

After all that glowing praise, what you should be aware of are the instances of products containing potential irritants (noted in their respective reviews) as well as the products in jar packaging that contain ingredients which are sensitive to air and light.
