Juvena Renewing Eye Serum is really great for puffy eyes I've found. I've also recently started using Garden Of Wisdoms GoAway Dark Circles Eye Serum followed by their Majik Eye Cream and after a few weeks of use I am definitely seeing some good results.

Hi Mozaik

I'm in my twenties and battling the same issues as u r.

For me pore size is temporarily reduced a bit when I use masks like cellex c skin toning mask. But these masks also dry out my skin a bit. One more problem I have is sensitive skin, so most "harsh" products like TCA peels may not work for me. But they may work very well for you. see members' advice on peels: http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=23481&highlight=

Dark circles: I guess it depends on what is the cause. IF it is just lack of sleep, stress, etc. you can use teamine or other eye creams with vit K. I think many forum members had success with teamine. But if they are deep and hereditary like mine, these products will only minimize the dark circles a bit. I am looking into laser treatment for dark circles although I may not be a good candidate at this point. See http://www.beverlyhillsmakeover.com/BeverlyHills_Botox_Skin_Laser_Before_After.htm#Dark_Circles (my dark circles are worse than the guy's in the pic).

You can find Juvena here on EDS, or Ebay sometimes has the Juvena Renewing Serum. There are a few reviews on the Juvena on this forum so you should have a read.
Just wanted to say that I have tried the PTR Vit K Eye Cream and unfourtunately I didn't see any improvement in my dark circles, but I know many others. Though I am interested in trying Revision Teamine Eye Cream since I've heard good things about this too.

You can find Garden of Wisdom products here www.gardenofwisdom.com they are under the finished products header. HTH.

Thanks! It is really so much outhere, that is easy to get confused. And there are so many places where for DIY. But these things are not for me, as i never touched this subject. However i am overwhelmed when i see how much informed can someone get from the info on this forum. I cant say never, but i dont think i will ever touch the store staff. BTW, any suggestion for enlarged pores. TIA. Very Happy

Hylexin is supposed to be v good for dark circles. I used products with AHA and PHA for an extended period of time and I find that my pores have diminished. I have VERY oily skin in the the nose area. When I say diminished, I mean it's not like so small you can't see it, but it is noticeably smaller. Someone also wrote a thread on a something called oil pulling in this forum which is supposed to diminish dark circles. It's a method involving swishing around a olive oil and sunflower oil method in your mouth.

Different things are obviously going to work for everyone, but my pores have noticeably decreased, they haven't disappeared but they are much less noticeable than they were. I can't pinpoint an actual product, but I found that finding a great cleanser that works for your skin type, and keeps your pores clean works wonders. I'm using Osea Ocean Cleanser at the moment and alternating it with Osea Cleansing Mudd. The Cleansing Mudd is amazing, my pores look almost non existant after using it. Eve Lom do a great cleanser aswell.
I recently began to use an asprin mask a couple of times a week too, and this type of exfoliation again seems to have helped minimize the appearance of pores for me.

There are so many products, but it really is a case of trial and error. I used products in the past that others have given great reviews on, only to find that they didn't work for me, and in some cases made my skin worse.

Mozaik, I personally don't make my own DIY products, but have bought finished products from small DIY based companies and i'm so pleased that I did. I have had better results with many of those products than branded ones.
You should do a search on the reviews section of the forum, because as you mentioned there is an overwhelming amount of information on the forum!

Thank you!I've heard about the aspirin mask but i didnt know the reason for it. I will read more, but is good to have some suggestions to start with. Before 2 weeks ago, i had no idea that this forum existed! I even dont remember how i found it, but I'm soooo glad i did! Very Happy

A suggestion from Kimberly Sayer's website which, surprisingly, is effective:

Puffy Eye Treatment: This is so simple to make and can be done so in about 1-2 minutes. Very simply grate a potato and collect the juice from the grated potato. Apply the potato juice to damp cotton pads and leave on the eye area for 15 minutes. Very restorative and takes away puffiness. For extreme problems leave on for 30 minutes. Alternative is using chamomile tea bags.
