I’ve been using the Olay Regenerist eye cream – and it’s not working 🙁 I’m also looking for suggestions as well.

Benefit makes a great cream for under eye circles called eyecon. Or at least, I think it’s great. They sell it at Sephora.

I haven’t found anything to get rid of mine, but MAC and Laura Mercier make great concealers to at least cover them up.

As my dermatologist says nothing I can do except cover up.

Laura Mercier makes a great duo set that covers dark purple bags like mine.

I use a pack made from grated potatoes. Just put them in the fridge to cool them and then cover your eyes with them under a cotton pad for 15 minutes.

I think it works but maybe its psychological 🙂

On the cheap home remedy side, cheap black tea bags, moistened and used as a pack, is supposed to work.

I typically have pretty bad under eye circles as well.  I haven’t had any luck getting rid of them, but I have found that the bare minerals  multi-tasking face in bisque does a phenomenal job with coverup.  They pretty much just disappeared… I mean, they’re still there, but you can’t tell that they are. 😀

Mary Kay TimeWise® Targeted-Action™ Eye Revitalizer is AMAZING!! I used it for a while… it’s when I STOPPED using it that I noticed the difference – my dark circles and puffiness came back. Needless to say, I’m using it again!

I have a friend who is a newscaster, and he says they use Preparation H for puffiness.  He keeps it in his refrigerator.  His eyes usually look great.  Obviously on the air he also wears professionally applied concealer!!

i hear ya!  i’m fair-skinned, so my dark circles look even darker.

go to your nearest bobbi brown counter and talk to the consultant.  bobbi brown has an amazing under-eye concealer (that comes with powder to set it!  the eye cream is light and nice (you have to get the eye cream for underneath the concealer).  it’s a super-highly-recommended makeup product.

another option is applying a lightening pencil (we’re talking super-fair to almost white with diffused sparkle) to the areas that are dark (i have something called benefit ‘flash’–it’s called something else now).  basically, it deflects light from darker areas. i’ve been using mine again and people have said i look more awake.
