Get rid of the bags under my eyes!

Three years ago I wrote a post about how to get rid of the bags under my eyes. Little did I know that it would become one of the most popular posts based on the search "tired eyes."

I originally wrote:

"I haven't really had a consistent, good sleeping schedule for a year and am in desperate need for some sort of product that will help reduce the bags/dark circles under my eyes -- not cosmetics or coverup but something actually that would reduce the bags. I've never been a particularly girly girl so I'm not even sure that this sort of thing actually exists (or rather, if it actually works). Any suggestions about a good product to try?"

I received a lot of advice in the comments, but that was for 2003 products.

Is there anything that's new and so revolutionary to make my bags less noticeable?



I have this same problem. I use Mary Kay's firming eye cream and one of the first things I noticed about it is that it reduced, nay eliminated, the bags under my eyes. I use it in the morning and in the evening. I can bring you some when I come out to the office at the end of Janauary, if you want. Of course, you can probably track down your very own Mary Kay consultant by throwing a rock or something (they're everywhere) if you want a bottle sooner.


I saw a post about this on Sheckys.com: http://www.sheckys.com/newyorkcity/beauty/blog.asp?aid=2536

As a fellow bag-sufferer, I haven't tried it yet, but I'm very eager to do so.

Just wanted to comment on your typepad blog. I think I will set one up myself.

Ugh, it gets pretty difficult to remove the bags when stress piles up. Products and creams may not give you the best solution to this, but perhaps your derma can help you with that. Waiting for the cream to take its magical effects just seems to make using it more stressful.
