I'm a busy mum to 3 boys so constantly got something to do. I don't sleep very well at times and I constantly feel a bit worn out. I've had a few comments lately saying I look tired to me that's a pleasant way of saying i look rough
Anyway I've been using optrex eye drops for tired eyes to try take the redness away but looking for some extra tips to help with the bags and dark circles?? A cheapish revitalising eye or face cream maybe?? Or natural remedy that might help? ?

Ren Eye Gel works for me.

Do you wear make up ?
I think the only thing that truly hides eye bags is make up.

The Rimmel Lasting Finish concealer in the little red pot is Excellent .
I think good eye make up , mascara , liner etc , to open the eyes up also makes you look more awake / alert .

Can you work on your sleep ?
No caffeine after lunch and giving up alcohol worked wonders for me.
A depuffing ,cooling eye gel -Origins No Puffery is good.
If you have bags,rich creams make it worse.

Oh and drink plenty of water grin

Try pitter pattering your fingertips around your eyes to help release some of the puffiness.

And concealer, gotta have concealer.

Eye drops did help me. The other thing is a highlighter in with your moisturiser or foundation. I currently use benefit high beam but I know simple have a highlighting moisturiser. Oh and fresh air.

There is no better remedy than sleep and a good diet but as a sahm I know for me that's unlikely.

Ooh, can I join in? I have the worst eye bags in the world and have always had to use under eye concealer when out and about. More recently, my eyes look more inflamed and dry. I've been to see my GP, who did a test and advised me to get blood tests, and the results were normal.

What eye drops did you use jelly?

Optrex tired eyes help for everyday. I have been known to use eyedew blue drops but not often!
