    Can anyone recommend an eye cream for dark circles under the eyes?!

    Basically i have a teething 5 month old daughter so not much sleep and it's started making my eyes dark. Need something for make up free days, thanks

    you could still use a little bit of concealer under your eyes, even if you weren't wearing full make up.

    Teabags are meant to help.

    I've got the same problem but I'm not willing to use that...that's only supposed to be spread over others. :giggle:

    I use a nivea cream, I think it's called Q10 but I keep forgetting to use it...so it's not making much difference.
    My brother has some really expensive stuff that's supposed to be extremely effective but I haven't noticed any difference.

    I have 3 boys aged 4 and under.............i've looked like this for years now :-D

    Thanks but was looking for something that would maybe help it fade rather than cover it up.

    Lol, frozen tea bags yeah? Just kidding!

    cucumber.
    It more or less proven that cream dont help. Only concealer can make any difference.
    I know cos i spent hours researching it the other day, looking for a miracle.

    as well as a good eye cream i would slap on some a bit of fake tan. we tend to get pale this time of year. buy some nice perfume too.

    Attack it from all angles girl!!! and you will feel much better.

    here's a hug for a boost :friends:

    Thank you Tan will help hide stretch marks too! :-D

    Creams don't work and it's all down to your diet, usually an iron deficiency. Try eating a handful of sunflower seed mix every day as a snack along with dark choc (just a small square), no more dark circles within a month I reckon

    ahhhhhhhh im aneamic so thats why mine are bad. Daint know that thanks choc

    I just found it but it's the mens version...it works out £163 per 100ml but don't worry, you can get it in smaller quantities and they have 3 for 2 promos.
