Thankfully, we have never had to deal with dark undereye circles.
However, undereye puffiness, freckles, and the ability to gain five pounds by just looking at a Krispy Kreme are the gifts we were destined to have. Thanks genes!
Our husband on the other hand (who is very hot, by the way, even with dark circles,) being half portuguese, has dealt with his dark circles his entire life. (Not that he has ever cared, or even noticed them.) (That is what he has a wife for!)
Several years ago we tried Neutrogena Radiance Boost Eye Cream to see if it would help our undereye puffiness, which it totally did, but ended up urging our husband to use it for his dark circles. (For the record, and in case any of his buddies are reading this website, he wants us to make it clear that we forced this eye cream upon him. Got that? He was FORCED.)
Within a week of using this, his dark circles were noticeably lighter, and while they never completely go away, the powerful anti-oxidants in this product keep them at bay.
If you are one of the lucky ones that was destined for dark circles and have not yet tried Neutrogena Radiance Boost Eye Cream, you MUST!
