Your best solution for dark spot under eyes?

okay.. they arent super dark but a little dark that it bothers me now (had it for as long as I can remember, even seen them in a pic of me in 2006). i get about 8-9 hours of sleep alot and use my pc quite often as most of my work is done on here. i've tried the cucumber slices along with drinking lots of water, but no luck

allergies is also a problem with me, which I think is the cause.. but I'm not exactly sure of it. I purchased Neutrogena Radiance Boost eye cream today for about 25$ and going to try them for as long as the bottle lasts to see any effect. if not i'm going to have to seek alternatives

I prefer using creams over putting slices of potatoes, cucumbers and what not over my eyes, would probably be more effective anyway? Plus I remember reading something about vitamin k and retinol in creams work best, but I didnt see any eye creams that had those ingredients in them at all

so.. post any creams that worked for you and the price. i'm taking any suggestions! local Wal-mart didnt have much choice so I might just get them over the internet if needed.. thanks!

ps. I dont have bags under my eyes, or puffiness. just dark :P

Some people just have dark circles...
Until you find something that works more permanently, a light-reflecting concealer patted down around does wonders. It depends on your skin tone, but I have really been liking mineral make-up over cream and liquid-based concealers.

i've checked older pics of myself and they didnt have those so i'm hoping for a cream to brighten them away, or a bit atleast..

by the way, i'm gonna avoid concealers and make up since i'm a male

Run a search for eye cream. We discussed this many times in the hair and makeup section.

allergic shiners...unless you figure out what food allergies you have (wheat and dairy are common ones) and eliminate them completely, you'll be stuck with them!
