i too suffer from this, it was a side effect of meds i took when i was younger. I have tried a cream called circle clear, its yellow and quite thick, so you dont need much, i found it very effective. also a bit of fake tan helps! maybe see your gp to rule out any medical causes, and try to drink oodles of water :) x

My daughter has dark circles too. She uses MAc makeup and is buying a concealer today which was recommended to her by the make up artist on the website when she emailed. Will let you know what its called and how it covers when she gets home tonight.

found this for you - if you want to give it a go............i know its not a creme - but will be more absorbant than creme

First prepare a bottle with eyedropper. Mix 4ml of Jojoba Oil and 1ml of Evening Primrose Oil together in the bottle. Blend well. Then add in 3 drops of Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil. Blend again. It is very important to take note that the sequence of steps is crucial. When the essential oil is ready, you can take 2 drops of the eye oil and massage around your eyes at night. You should able to see visible results after 2 weeks. Remember, persistence is the key to success.

The formula is quite easy to follow. However there are few things that you must take care of. First, It must be 100% pure steam-distilled Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil. Secondly, 3 drops of Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil is sufficient and the formula must be finished within 6 months. The formula can also be used to ease menstrual cramps as the formula contains Evening Primrose Oil.

hth
let us know how you get on with it (if you decided to make it) :hug:

the circle clear cream is quite thick, BUT it is designed to be used as part of your daily skin care routine, not as a stand-alone concealer. its no thicker than normal eye creams from elemis or dermalogica. as far as concealers go i find that a lilac one works very well, not tried a yellow one yet. good luck! xx

The best concealer to try and hide the dark circles would be derma blend or veil which is a professional camoflauge make up brand.
I agree that increasing your water intale will also help to improve.

I havent tried the blend yet, but thank I will also give that a go! Anything that helps lol
