Dark Eye Circles - Under Eye Treatments

By Mary Frenkel

Ugh! Those dark eye circles! Looking at pictures of myself during childhood, I can’t help but notice my dark eye circles before anything else. Over the years, I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on products claiming to banish those ever-present shadows forever; unfortunately, they’ve all been to no avail.

While researching ways to get rid of dark circles, I learned that the causes include genetics (as in my case), lack of sleep, sickness such as colds and allergies, and dehydration.

Add ageing and the fact that under eye skin is the thinnest and most delicate area on our body into the mix, and the odds are stacked against you in your battle against the dark side.

After all, eating healthy and drinking lots of water only gets you so far. 

Have I have found the holy grail of under eye circle and crepey skin cures? Maybe not, but I'm very happy with my current eye serum. As you see it does a pretty decent job :-)

What about serious dark circles?

Well, here are a few products that offer serious results for those with really dark eye circles. Starting with the most impressive concealer, most loved by many women:

Mommy Makeup Concealer

  • This versatile concealer is not only great to erase dark under eye circles, but can be used as an eyeshadow base or even a complete face cover-up. It melts into the skin so it never looks cakey and blends well with your own skin tone.

Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector

  • This is a lightening cream that claims to help hide your dark circles temporarily as well as permanently; I would say mine are about 15% better than they were before. The cold metal tip feels nice and soothing around your eyes as well. 

Lancôme Effacernes Undereye Dark Circle Concealer

  • This offers excellent coverage with a matt finish that lasts all day. Helps conceal fine lines and contains SPF protection.

Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen

  • To make your under eyes look lighter and brighter naturally, this is fantastic. It is easy to apply and has micro sheen pigments that hide imperfections by diffusing light. The pen is also great for highlighting other areas on your face as well; I use it on my cheekbones, nose bridge, and on wrinkles. It is sheer to medium in coverage.
