Circles Are Better Than Squares

Lately, I’ve been experiencing dark circles under my eyes. I suppose it’s from something that I’m not doing. I’m not working out regularly, but I’m eating fairly well. I’m getting a decent amount of sleep, but I also never see the sun. Not a lot of sinus issues or allergies. I suppose it comes with age so I picked up an eye cream that was rated well on Sephora. It makes my eyes water which sort of freaks me out.

Using eye cream is like eating local honey for allergies. There’s literally a 50/50 chance that it will work. For every article that states local honey works…there’s another that says it’s total BS. There’s absolutely no incentive to do this every day. No instant gratification.

So I’ll keep you posted unless some of you have any suggestions. And until I see any improvement, I’ll share my favorite concealers soon.


A weekly email where I share things that made me stop and consider: opinions, other articles on the internet, trying new experiences, and products you might like to buy.

    Maybe you should try a different eye cream if it makes your eyes water. Sephora is great about returns. I used an eye cream for a week, and it made my eyes water and I returned. No questions asked. It was wonderful.
