  • Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Eye Treatment. It is about $50.

    Anti-histamines can also help with dark circles, and birth control can make them worse. Just an FYI

  • I'm not sure about a cream, but if you wear makeup, there is a great under eye concealer from Physicians Formula, get it in yellow. A few dots under your eye, blend and some powder on top. Makes a HUGE difference. GL

  • Sally's Beauty Supply actually has some great things that are pretty reasonably priced. You might check them out.

  • Jordan Essentials Cucumber Eye Treatment. 12 or 24 count. These are pre-soaked eye masks. You just pull it out, put it on, & relax. It's quick & easy. Perfect for the busy mom.

  • Unrefined raw shea butter is an amazing all over moisturizer. It's good for even your hair and tea bags for the dark circles.

  • Bright-I Cream from Skinactives is the best!  And at $17.50 for 0.5 oz, it's a steal of a deal.

  • Preparation H joke..;) Models have used it for decades

    Also, natural aloe vera gel....the secret to perfect skin...

    Be sure to look up "face exercises" online..or you tube...these work to lift the eye area and firm up your face. It works for me--and I'm only start doing them now--so you will see big changes..the reason why is because the muscles in our face are smaller then our body--so results are pretty instant. ;)
