Recently a family member reached out about getting rid of dark circles, and my first thought was, “You and me both, sister.”  The obvious answers here are “Drink more water!” and “Get more sleep!”, but sometimes you need a little extra help.  Luckily these days there are tons of great products to help cover (or even better, fix) those pesky dark circles, and I’ve gotten the chance to try quite a few of them.  Through gift bags and blogger loot and maybe a little bit through my own addiction to trying out new beauty products, I’ve slathered on all of the products above and think they’re all pretty worthwhile.  It just depends on what you’re willing to spend and what you’re looking for.  Personally I like a good eye treatment at night (1, 2, 3, and 6 above).  For mornings, I love some sort of brightening cream (#7 is a clear winner here to me) followed by an undereye concealer that focuses on lightening (#5 is amazing).  So if you can’t get those 8 recommended hours (Guilty!), try lightening up the dark circles with something from this list.  Anything from your regimen that I’m missing out on?

    Skin Owl? I may try this brand based on the name alone. I rarely get 8 hours of sleep on workdays. One of my “go to” products is Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream for eyes.

      Ha, it’s a good name, right? I’d definitely recommend checking it out. It’s a cucumber-y gel that gives a tightening feeling. Will definitely have to check out that BB from Smashbox! xo
