Yes, I do have allergies, and I think this is the main cause of my dark circles. I take antihistamines daily.
Ziggy, your Mum's product looks interesting but I'm in the UK and postage would be a problem. I would spend a fortune on Etsy if I lived in the US!
I have heard the Preparation H thing before...it is very gloopy though.
I ended up buying Dior Capture 10, as the drooping eyelids are my main concern. It is great so far. I think i'm also seeing an improvement with my dark circles as it seems to be making the skin thicker and less translucent if that's possible. When i'm feeling quite bad about them I do apply hardcore concealer but I don't really like applying it too often as it's very thick..

Do you have allergies? What you are describing could be caused by seasonal allergies. And those of who have seasonal allergies can tell you that all seasons have allergens! I have to take my allergy medicine in a blizzard!

I wouldn't put too much stock in expensive eye creams. The darkness is also hereditary. My son has them and they improve with better nutrition, more sleep. I use vitamin e for the texture problems. Just pin prick a capsule or use olive oil at night as a sleep mask. It works for me.
Check out this line..there is a product specifically FOR dark circles under your eyes called Bright Eyes, and also the Steal Youth Face & Eye Cream is amazing (firming)!!
This is actually my mom's business so sure, I'd love to bring some business her way. But honestly, I would recommend her line to anyone. She's amazing at what she does and her products really WORK, I'm serious. And just a sidenote about wrinkles, a woman who was using the Steal Youth cream actually sent my mom pictures before she started using it around her eyes and a few months later, and it was remarkable. So if you're looking for quality product that will work, and is made with my mom's love lol, look no further :) I hope you find this helpful!

I've been searching the net for reviews on good eye creams, but thought that I would try here for honest opinions.
I have had dark circles and a weird texture under my eyes since being a teen. Increased water intake hasn't fixed this so I would like to try a new cream as the Olay isn't cutting the mustard! I also have quite heavy eye lids / brow and so something firming would also be great. I'm 31 and I don't really have any lines or wrinkles...yet!
Can anybody recommend any creams at all? My buidget isn't too bad, up to £50 ($85). I have been looking at Dior and Clarins so far.
