Sleep? What Sleep?

I am a product whore. I love nice smelling soaps, lotions and potions. In my bathroom there is no less then four different shampoos and conditioners, two different sugar scrubs, one shampoo/conditioner in one and two different scented shaving creams.
I don't want to tell you how many lotions I have or different makeup samples, because I am a sucker for a free gift with purchase.
LOVE the free gift with purchase.

Alas, my product stockpiling and the lack of space* I have for such products is a different post for a different day.
What I need is help for you ladies. We all know with kids we get little to no sleep, so I have a little problem known as dark under eye circles.
With twins I have double the dark eye circles.

I need something that will help. I am aware that hylexin is a good product but I wanted to see if there was something else out there that works well before I have to give my husband a heart attack when I tell him my dark circles are only going to go away with cream that costs as much as our groceries for the week.
I like food but I like not looking like a vampire better.

So, girls, what works for you?

* Have you guys seen Kimora Lee Simmons cribs episode where she practically had a 8x10 room for all her products? Rows and rows of expensive creams and makeup, all lined up neatly and beautifully.
That was the best part of her 92783 room mansion and I am so jealous.
I know where she lives in Jersey, 10 minutes from my hometown, bitch better watch herself.

    mary kay has an undereye concealer thingie that works pretty well.... can't remember the name of it for the life of me - so I guess I'm not much help.. and I hear you re: the products. I am a product junkie myself - currently obsessed with bath and body works mango mandarin shower gel. deeeelightful!!

  2. I haven't been able to find anything that really "reduces" the dark circles, and honey, I have them!

    I once sent out a shout for someone to find my favorite discontinued Clinique undereye concealer, but it has gone unaswered. The dark circles perpetuate.

    How hard would you slap me if I was standing in front of you telling you to get more sleep and drink lots of water?

  3. Physician's Formula (and there are others), make special colored stick concealers for dark circles. I think they make one for red blemishes. It's a contrasting color thing. AND, it shouldn't cause you to go without food for you and your wee ones for a whole week. :)

    I've yet to hear of something that takes them away that isn't make-up. If you find such a wonderous product, do share!
