    has been working. It was expensive - $95.00 for a little tube. She just uses a little but people have been noticing the improvement. It was in our May Co. store next to the "Better than Botox". I think it has hylexa or hylexia in it. She said she saw it cheaper on eBay.

    I'm a racoon and the less sleep I get the bigger the bags and dark circles. I've always had this. When I was 2l I went on one of those "If it Tuesday it must be Belgium" type tours. My Mom said they hardly recognized me when I got off the plane. I slept for 2 l/2 days sraight when I got home.

    I guess allergies and this FMS/CFS.
    I try different cover ups,but NOT for $95.
    Now I am using Bare essential mineral makeup,bisque powder with their great little brush.I think I just heard on tv Sally Hansen has a cheap,but effective eye concealer.

    Take care,

    are related to allergies. My son and hubby both struggle with sinus allergies and I can always tell when they are worse by the circles.

    I also have the dark circles and they seem to be related to either too little sleep or too much sleep when I am in my 15 hour a day sleep cycles.

    I use Physicians Formula "yellow" concealer. I like the lipstick looking one better than the one in the tub (it's a little creamier)
    Also, I use a self tanner by Neutrogena that seems to make my other skin darker so the dark circles are less noticable.
    Very affordable.

    the dark circles are bad, but the puffyness is worse. Makes me look 10 years older than I am.

    forgot to say, I also have been using the stuff from Macy's for 95.00 a tube. Only a week, but I think I can tell a little difference.

    I bought some concealer from Mary Kay cosmetics that works very well. the undereye circles do get worse when I eat the bad stuff, too many carbs, too much sugar.

    They call 'em "allergy shiners". I have them, and my youngest child has them really bad, she has asthma, eczema, lactose intolerance, and is allergic to everything outdoors.

    I don't have a solution. Sorry.

    I have been in health care for 15 years, and we could always tell a kid or adult with allergies from the circles under their eyes.

    I had allergies as a child and had the circles under my eyes. I guess they like to stay there, because I have no trouble with allergies now, but still have the circles. I think the bags saw them and thought they'd join in too, because now I have both.

    I try to ignore them when I look in the mirror, but sometimes they bother. Sinus and allergy also make them more noticeable to me atleast

    I have been told usually are allergies or lack of sleep of course

    FUNNY STORY - I was buying making once, and the snooty clerk said "I think you need some undereye concealer, here put some on.

    I did, then she said "you need more".

    So I put more on and she said "MORE"

    I was ticked at the time, but had to laugh afterwards. Guess I looked pretty bad!
