Hi, Just wondering if anyone who has dark circles has found a product that actually reduces them? I've been using DCX serum for a year now without results. I really would love to find a substitute. Thanks Smile

the skin under my eyes is a lot thinner than the rest of my face (i don't have thick skin to begin with, anyways), so i found that one way to help prevent those darned blood vessels from showing through is to use a collagen builder--preferably one with less irritation, like a matrixyl serum. there are TONS of these out there, just board search and you're set!

Thanks for the suggestion, I'm not familiar with Matrixyl, I'll check it out Smile

I had a lot of luck last year using a product called SkinCubed. It's pricey but it has lasted me a long time. I'm trying a new one, less expensive and I think it might be helping. It is True Radiance eye serum.

OK, I look forward to your review. The price is certainly resonable.

I tried many brands like La Prairie, Swissline, PTR... without seeing any improvement! Sad
I hope there are someone sharing good news!

I've been using the True Radiance for almost a week and as I just told a friend, I'm sold on this product. My circles are lessening and even better, the quality of the undereye area is looking very nice. The lids also seem tighter. I can't comment on how this would work with crows feet as that's not a big problem for me. I'm impressed and can't wait to see what further usage will do.

Has anyone tried the product from Roots Herbal? There was a poster on the Dark Circles Blog that had a bit of success with it.

I have the same problem! Mine's hereditary. Sad I'm looking for something too.

I'm also looking for a product I've tried many different product lines and all seem to work for a bit but lose effect on me.

I'm currently using one from Cellcosemet and it seems to be working great but it does come with a price tag $200+

I've seen Borba has one also LUSH has one anyone use those before?

I agree with PP, I rec'd a small smaple of Cellcosmet Gel and I used it a few times and within a matter of days my dark circles under my eyes were greatly diminished, I was extremelly impressed with this product, although the price is high a little goes a long way Smile

The cellcosmet eye cream is certainly great for the eyes- I have dark circles and puffy eyes but since using nearly all of the sample sized jar, my dark circles are less pronounced, although still slightly puffy, the whole eye area certainly looks better than better!
However, as others have said, its very expensive and its out of my prive range so unfortunately, although I like it, I wont be repurchasing Sad

PS- I cant comment on the anti-ageing benefits as Im only 21 though

i've heard a lot about the true radiance, and i've recently stumbled upon an eyecream (on skincarerx.com) called belli eye brightening cream--it's for post-pregnancy, but seems to work on everyone (the reviews are really positive).

If you have dark circle from sleeping late or lack of rest, you should try the product contains vitamin k. It can help and solve dark circle but If you have dark circle since you r baby I think only concealer can help it.

I like Illumineyes by Ice Elements. Not only does it get rid of dark circles, but it also de-puffs and it is sooo soothing! It is extra nice if kept in the fridge in the hotter months.

Also, anything with a good amount of Vitamin K... there is a great DIY recipe posted on here somewhere with knox gelatin and hot water. If you cannot turn it up with a search, I have it somewhere and can look it up for you.

Good luck and take care.

I have learnt something. let me share with you.
if your dark circle is in green colour, that means the blood circulation is poor, so you need to use the product with vitamin k or to improve the circulation. if your dark circle is brown in colour. It is the pigmentation. So whitening product is needed.

HI

I have tried it in the past and do think it was helpful and there was definitely a difference, but the only thing was the aplication with having to mix it and then apply it for 30 minutes before rinsing it off. Just didn't have the time to keep it up.

I too have read good things about True Raidiance, and plan to give it a go. I have tried the SkinCubed eye creme (very expensive) but it really did not make much of a difference to the darkness. It did however appear to reduce my fine lines around the eyes.

I'm waiting for the True Radiance reviews too. I guess if it's going to work it would take some time though. I hope people are having positive results with it, because the price is reasonable.
