The Dark Circle Erasers

It seems like I have been trying to get rid of my dark circles for...well, honestly, longer than I can even remember. I know at the end of the day it shouldn't matter, but I'm still self-conscious about them regardless. There's only so many times someone can be asked whether or not they're tired before a change becomes necessary.

Anyways, the point I'm trying to get at is that I've finally found a routine that really works well for me, and has genuinely made my dark circles look better than ever before. First up is my day time moisturizer of choice, the truly luxurious May Lindstrom's The Blue Cocoon. This stunning handmade mixture of blue tansy, camelia oil and marula oil (among other things) is a balm that immediately turns into an oil by the warmth of your finger tips. A little goes a long way (seriously, that tiny travel size above has gotten two months of daily use and still has tons left), so I actually have been enjoying combining just the tiniest dab of this with my concealer for any eye moisturizer and concealer in one. The result is hydrated, plumper skin and completely erased fine lines. Since introducing this into my routine, I've finally been able to say goodbye to my concealer sinking into fine lines, or drying out underneath my eyes. This has changed that for the better, and I'll never be without it. I just ordered the full size and I genuinely expect it to last well over a year.

For nighttime treatment, I have been swearing by Tata Harper's Boosted Contouring Eye Mask*, a thick formula that combines red algae, Spanish lavender and cucumber seed oil to reduce puffiness, dark circles and signs of fatigue. Now, this dreamy product is actually supposed to be used a few times a week as an eye mask, but I have been cheating a bit and using it nightly. I have had no irritation whatsoever, but instead am greeted by brighter, firmer skin every morning. I've always been self-conscious of, not only my dark circles, but they're sunken appearance, and this is the first product that has ever changed that. That combined with the pure and natural ingredients has made this a must-have for me.

Both these products cost a pretty penny (I'm anxious just thinking about it), but I was alright laying down the cash because they last literally forever and they truly work. I'm done with trying endless treatments that don't provide results, I've finally found my dark circle saviors.
