I woke up with horrendous bags under my eyes this morning, which was kinda surprising since I *did* get about 8 hours of sleep. I never had this problem until recently, guess it’s part of getting old for me! Does anyone have a cream they swear by that masks those pesky bags? Thanks in advance! 🙂

Hemroid cream! I know it sounds gross, but when my eyes are puffy it’s the only thing that helps them go down – and I have chronic dark circles and bags under my eyes. No matter how much sleep I get, they’re alwayyyysssss there, always have been. So that and a generous use of concealer and a highlight pencil.
Just a tip – get the white cream, not the gel. When the gel dries, it tends to flake and gunk and come off, taking your makeup with it.

LOL that sounds pretty gross, but I guess it’s cheaper than buying an expensive eye cream

@stargazer102706: I think it just depends on genetics. I get really puffy eye bags, and nothing works for me. not expensive eye cream (even if it’s developed specifically for bags), not cucumbers or cold tea bags, not preperation H.
the only thing I can do is try to prevent them: don’t eat too much salt the day before and get a good nights sleep.
EDIT: I read that eye creams with caffeine might work, so that’s worth a try. I have not tried that yet myself.
