There is a sucker born every minute...

and I am a big one! Let me explain. I have horrible dark circles under my eyes. It has always been bad but with my health in decline the circles have been worse. And I have eye wrinkles now too. If there is a product that PROMISES it will "dimish" dark circles, I will buy it. I cannot tell you how much money I have thrown away and nothing has helped. NOTHING! I have spent small amounts at the drugstore to huge amounts at the clinque counter. I have tried everything, nothing has helped. Some of them feel very nice but they havent helped. So now Avon has introduced a new eye cream that promises not only to help with the circles but also to give you "instant eye lift" This new product is $28!!!! Highway robbery. BUT guess who is $28 poorer today? Hope springs eternal. Maybe....just maybe this one will work. Damn you Avon.

You know, I have a smartass comment for this post, but I am not gonna make it.

I want you to get better first. Once you are back in the pink, I will go back to being a smartass.

You know if that stuff worked the plastic surgeons would have it outlawed.

Hey Mel.

I hope you're feeling Ok these days.

Training a new person can take its toll on you, huh? (But I think it'll be good in the long run).

I've heard that Preparation H (yup, the hemorrhoid cream) is good for reducing eye wrinkles...Honestly...

Anyway, take care out there, Mel!

Your Pal,

Ah Avon, my Mom just to buy something every single time the Avon lady came over... I think she just liked to hang out and chat with her because she never used half that stuff either.

Well I hope it works for you! I am not a believer in all these magical creams and stuff! If it doesn't work, you should try some cool cucumber slices or used tea bags - apparently that does work and it won't make you poorer! So next time you make yourself a cuppa, instead of throwing away the bags you can stick em on your eyes instead! Good Luck and enjoy your weekend!

Good luck with the good fight....we're all joinging you there in one way or another. Now if only they made a reducing cream for asses.....takes 10 pounds off instantly! I would pay 28 bucks for that, LOL!

I've had success using Anew products. Haven't tried this one though.

Be sure to let us know if it works!

HAHAHA I have awful dark circles too. When I was a kid, some doctor told me it was because of allergies. I have asked a ton of Doc's and my dermatologist and they all say there is nothing they can do for dark circles. All the retin A stuff doesn't help circles either. Sorry....
