Leena Asks:

Hi rati n other IMBB beauties..This is leena from banglore. I am a software professional.

I have a small issue.I have dark circles. I got because of my work on computer.My face is fair n pimple free.but my under eye, it is really depressing. I have tried many brands..garnier eye roll on,vlcc,biotique seaweed gel, even a ayurvedic cream..but no use.

Pls pls suggest me a best eye cream.It would be very helpful to me and many other software professionals..

guess i’ll copy paste my prev reply only. :P

You can use blossom kochhar’s almond cream twice a day. it has really worked for me and my mom.

You can try placing slices of potatoes on your eyes. they are quite effective. :)

Also check this thread :)

Try using clinique or estee lauder under eye cream. Its worth the price. Reduced mine a lot.

Pls be patient in using the eye creams cos it would take more than two months to see results.

Reply

Parita June 28, 2011 at 10:27 am

Hi Leena..try using Oriflame’s Seeing is Believing cream..I have used it and it does work..it reduces the dark circles and puffness around the eyes efectively..the only cone here is that it will take some time for the effects to show but you need to be patient :toothygrin:
here is the review of oriflame’s cream – http://makeupandbeauty.com/oriflame-eye-cream-seeing-is-believing-review/

Also I have heard great reviews of Avon’s Solutions Total Radiance Eye gel
the review for avon’s cream is here – http://makeupandbeauty.com/avon-solutions-total-radiance-eye-gel-review/

Hope this helps :)

slightly massage with almond oil everyday before you hit the bed.
every morning place (cotten dipped in rose water) or Keera or alternate between both for min. 10 minutes on the eyes.
repeat the above process 4 – 5 times in one day atleast once a week (there should be 2 hours gap in between)
Drink lots of water
Sleep peacefully for 7 hours
Say good bye to stress

estee lauder it is..(basically i dont have enough patience to finish one dabba to see if it really works). I like TBS also becos its a perfect base for my undereye concealer.

ha sure i will show my panda eyes (before)..clear skin (after) pics.. :toothygrin: ..one more thing..can anyone suggest best smudge proof eye liner for lower lash line..i would love to use..once i tried lakme liquid eye liner..it stinged me like hell:(..im looking for pencil type..i think lakme eye artist will work on lower lash line..any one had any idea?..

Reply

Rati June 28, 2011 at 11:42 am

leena dont use liquid liner on waterline.. use eye kohls

Reply

Aruna June 28, 2011 at 12:07 pm

or like VibrantHues said use Faces eye pencil on the waterline. Another tip I recd recently was that if you have small eyes and really dark circles then using black eyeliner on the waterline will only make the dark circles more visisble. better still would be to use a more subtle color like the browns, copper on the waterline and smudge it a bit.

Reply

Rati June 28, 2011 at 12:14 pm

yeah i love brown on waterline. :) they look very soft as compared to blacks. :)

Reply

Gini June 28, 2011 at 12:50 pm

You can try Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner, black shade… price is approx 475….
once applied, it sets and never smudges and doesnot fade for atleast 6 to 8 hours… if you rub, it simply fades away, but doesnot smudge…

I am also a software prosessional… so can well understand your pain with the dark circles :)

Reply

Gini June 28, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Also, i did buy lake eye artist… but it didnot work for me at all :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:
but since it has got great reviews, you may try…
i somehow, couldnot manage to use it on lower lashline

Reply

Gini June 28, 2011 at 1:35 pm

yes, it did poke badly!!! that is why i dont like the product
but somewhere in a tutorial saw that people do use it in lower lashline… :|

leena June 28, 2011 at 11:35 am

ha best idea .. prevention is better than hiding..thats why I concentrate more on products that reduce dark circles..than concealers..

I am having severe dark circles :wilt: **Heridity**…

Reply

Rosanna June 29, 2011 at 2:22 am

I am very pale with awful under eye circles. The ONLY cream that works is Shiseido Benefiance. I know it costs a lot, but it delivers a lot. If I put it on on regular basis I can even skip the heavier concealer (Estee Lauder Double Wear 02).
