    looking at your pic I'd say that I've never seen dark circles that stretch all the way to the solar-plexus.

    You can either get a shaggy do + grow a beard to match your dark circles and go grunge
    or
    eat better + sleep longer + drink way more water.

    Sorry I don't know about any creams that might help.

    Go to your local makeup counter and ask them. I heard that Dior makes some good cremes. If you have a Sephora where you live that would be my first stop,but cremes are not cheap at all. So try the advice below first before you invest into a $50+ creme.


    eat better + sleep longer + drink way more water. This is also good advice

    I'm not the kind of guy that would normally look for something like that at all, but my eyes get pretty bad. I got tired of people askin me if i had trouble sleeping, or saying i wasnt getting enough rest. I came across this neutragena eye firm stuff. It works pretty good. I see a noticable difference after I use it. I bought it at the store but you can order it online.

    first you gotta stay hydrated and rested...then for products, I read reviews that garnier fructis sp? under eye stick works just as well as the 50 dollar creams...I personally use garnier and kiehls products....if you have to use makeup they sell stuff you can put under your eyes but I never ventured into that territory

    I did see an infomercial the other night about this very thing! I'd say try to stay up and watch it but that might cause your circles to get darker! Google search it. you should find it. I remember it being relatively inexpensive. Cucumbers wrk too....I think!

    I used Orlane for a while a few years ago (I had bad eye circles). I improved my diet and restructured the way I exercise and that pretty much eliminated them.

    I use this stick you are talking about if it is the one with the ball at the tip. It makes the skin under my eyes tingle so it at least feels good. I've been using eye cream since I was about 20.

    I was watching a program the other day... may have been Oprah, don't really remember. What I do remember are some of the tips they had, one of them having to do with under eye circles. Supposedly, if you slice up a Potato and place them on your eyes, with time you should noticed that the swelling and the dark circles should diminish. Can't say that I've tried this, but it's worth a shot.

    The following is what I use for my eyes...

    Mornings: After washing my face, I use the Garnier under eye roller. Great stuff cause it reduces any puffiness and I feel that it tightens the area.

    Nights: Again, after washing my face, I use the Aveeno firming creme.

    Don't forget to tap around the eye area in order to increase circulation around the eye area.

    Also, hydration and rest are huge factors as many of the guys on here have already stated.

    hydrate & moisturize, specifically under your eyes, pat don't rub. the skin there is very sensitive and prone to stretching and discoloration if you are rough with it. Get lots of sleep and try to eat well. Most moisturizers are all the same and eye specific "creams" are concentrated versions of what you put on your face.

    Don't spend a boat load of money, get samples of regular moisturizers from your local dept store, try them out and then buy the one you feel best about.

    remember, blot moisturizer under and around your eyes, pat it in, don't rub

    1969ER Zirh
    :
    ZIRH: RESTORE makes the delicate skin around the eyes stronger, healthier and more resilient, locking in moisture on the surface. Includes caffeine, to stimulate circulation underneath your eyes and help remove dark circles under the eyes. Unbeatable after a long flight, or a rough night.
    Key ingredients: Caffeine Extract, Chamomile Extract, Cucumber Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, PycnogenolĀ®

    I had reeaallllly bad dark circles for years icon_cool.gif- insomniac since childhood.
    I now live in seattle where the weather provides constant moisture in the air and I am "blessed" with zero capability for any sun damage unless I travel far far way.. I start my day with a quad shot espresso, then move on to dbl latte's throughout the day. --little did I kinow, i was systemically getting the primary key ingredient in ZIRH Restore while tripling my productivity at the same time! icon_eek.gif
    Seriously, though, I did have a dermatologist tell me that in comparison studies, L'Oreal for Men's eye cream did as well as some of the more expensive designer creams. Iused their eye cream for awhile, but after awhile, it fell out from being embedded it into my regime.
    I vote for bernd's advice: icon_idea.gif"eat better + sleep longer + drink way more water."

    TheGuyNextDoor saidI've tried a lot of things over the years to help keep the morning puffiness down and the dark circles at bay. Probably the best product I have ever used and least expensive is


    Actually, I've used this before too and it's actually quite good.

    I doubt that there is much you can do cosmetically to permanently remove the circles. The circles have to do with the dept and thickness of the skin under the eye and the skins ability to clear minute blood cloths that lay in the capillaries under the eye. Most of that is decided by your genetic makeup.

    Thanks for informing me about the $4000 operation though. Gonna start saving right away.

    Bag under the eyes are part of going old. I use to worry about it. Not anymore. I am maturing. Youth dont last forever.

    Dark circles under the eyes are caused by capillaries and small veins there expanding and becoming filled up because of a number of reasons from tiredness or heredity to a variety of sicknesses
    Anything that can lessen this swelling can lessen them
    That's why cuccumber slices work because of the coolness
    hell the best thing is to go to the drug store and grab a tube of Preparation H

    This was brought up in a thread a long time ago, and I believe it was ObsceneWish that recommended CammoCare, which you can get at a Natural Food store for about $8. I just ran out of the eye cream that I've been using so I was going to pick that up, but given the recommendation of GuyNextDoor, I might go for the Garnier. Hey, if I can hope to look as good as he does, I'll have what he's having! icon_smile.gif
