Hi JavaJo.... I will have to check out that product. I don't have dark circles... but sometimes I suffer from that puffiness.. due to lack of sleep. While I love laughing... I gotta say, I'm NOT happy with the lines.
Thanks for the info.
OK, just have to brag a little for Oil of Olay and Vaseline Aloe... went in for some bloodwork today and when the technician took my insurance cards and checked my birthday she did a doubletake and said, You're 70??? What is your secret? And she was serious, making notes, not just being nice.
Re circles...I don't know if this is true, but I've read they are due to little capillaries leaking under the eyes...so if you are taking a lot of aspirin for example, as you might if you were out late and partying, that's one reason you have circles after a big night out--the aspirin preventing blood from clotting so more leaks out. Maybe the cream described above strengthens the walls somehow?
Okay, beyond the ass/face equation noted above, I started using something new one week ago and it is fantastic - L'Occitane's Fabulous Serum. The whiteheads around my cheekbone that I've been trying to get rid of for decades - gone. My skin is rosy and smooth and dewy and this stuff is amazing. Don't just take my word for it:
Sephora - Fabulous Serum customer reviews - product reviews - read top consumer ratings
ETA: My co-worker, a straight male in his twenties whose favourite thing in life is sports, just said I looking "well-rested and glowing" in response to my saying that I had slept in. I asked if he was being sarcastic (wouldn't be surprised), and he said no, that I actually looked good. I cannot recommend this stuff highly enough.

As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. - H.L. Mencken .
Wow, those are rave reviews, other than for the smell... but someone more experienced...explain to me what a "serum" is vs. a "lotion"? Thanks!
It's for skin repair, not moisturizing. You put your moisturizer on over it, though I haven't had to use any yet and won't have to until winter starts in earnest.
I hope you like it, and yes, you are worth it
I started using Yonka again, and my skin is loving it. I cannot believe the difference
