All right, now it is time to turn back time. Oh, yeah, we love playing that song. The cream that claims to be an instant solution for erasing bags under your eyes. You see the videos there. These are videos of the product that are racking up hundreds of thousands of views online. We're about to see how well it works live here in studio but first ABC's juju Chang is here with more. Good morning, juju. Well, good morning, Amy. You know, aside from wrinkles they are the telltale signs of aging, dark circles, puffy bag, thank god for concealer and for those who stayed up till the wee hours for super Tuesday coverage, George, this morning is a doozy. What if you could get rid of the droop in a matter of minutes? I know, I'm skeptical. They are the videos that seem to be taking over my Facebook feed. Men and women erasing dark, puffy bags under their eyes. They aren't using botox or going under the knife as if by magic or air brush, it all happens in front of your eyes in as little as two minutes. The time lapsed video start with an application of an eye cream under just one eye. And then the timer begins. As the scream dries sometimes with the help of a fan or a waiving hand, the under eye bags completely disappearing. The difference between one side and the other remarkable. The videos appearing too impressive to be real. But are they? It's time we find out. Okay, here's the thing I usually dismiss these types of claims as exaggerations but these videos are everywhere and I kept going, this can't be real. How do I do it now I'm totally riveted to see if it really works. Strictly for journalistic reasons. Joining me now board certified dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe will help juju and the rest of us see. She's been applying the cream. We'll time it to see how long it takes effect. While we're watching what causes bags under eyes to form in the first place. So, take a look at this. So as we age, the fat pad under the eye, it actually herniates or pooches through, very much the way a hernia does in the gut so basically the internal lid structures that normally hold those fat pads in place, they get looser and then they bulge out, those fat pads and that's what people see as an under eye bag and it just makes you look tired. How did these products work? They claim they make the fat pats disappear. Is that the case. Think about a Chinese finger trap. So the bamboo is woven in such a way that it tightens as you pull. Now, very similarly the molecules in these creeps weave together tightly as they dry on the skin creating that smooth contour underneath the eye. It's like wearing an invisible film that temporarily tightens the skin like spanx or spandex. I can see that working so what ingredients should you be looking foror under eye cream. The main one is from silicates. As they mix with glycerin it creates a paste that dries on the skin and gives you lifting, tightening, pulling effect. Other ingredients to look for are caffeine, constricts blood vessels, hyaloronic acid, anti-ox dabtss neutralize free radicals and peptides trigger collagen formation to thicken the skin. We saw the flit screen before and after the eye cream and it really does look like it makes a big difference. My goodness, the catch is, it will only last a couple of hours. You told her not to smile. When it dries you have to hold skill and that is key or else it doesn't set properly. Then how long does it last? A couple of hours. All right. So she's good for a couple of hours. It's no long term but looks good for now. You look amazing. Thank you. Thank you, juju and outside to rob.
