Well if you haven't already guessed it from the awesome picture above, it's VASELINE! (Seriously, does anyone know where I can get a Vaseline container that looks like that?!?!)

Many people go through life only thinking inside the box when it comes to this tiny little bottle of wonder, however I have never been one for that. A long time ago I stumbled upon an article that revealed how Jen Aniston kept her under eye area flawlessly free of those dreaded DARK CIRCLES! (screech in horror! haha) The article went on to explain that on top of drinking her H20 daily, she faithfully rubbed Vaseline under her eyes each night before she went to bed. As I sat and read this article I thought "No WAY! She has to be using some fancy pants under eye cream made from moon rocks or something like that, no way Jen Aniston uses Vaseline to get rid of her under eye bags!" As I sat and giggled to my self I also started to look at my face and realize that I had some very serious under eye circles going on, and maybe trying something is better then not. I am sure I am not the only person out there who has had someone say to you "Oh you look so tired" or "Are you sick?" As they stared at your under eye circles that were still showing even though you tried your hardest to cover them with any cream or concealer you possibly could afford to own.  UGH!

Now on to the goods! After remembering that I had an unopened jar of this "Gold Mine" in my makeup bag I quickly ran to the bathroom, washed my face clean, and began rubbing as much Vaseline under my eyes as I could! The article explained that gently rubbing the Vaseline under your eyes in a small circular motion, down to the middle of where your nose is and out to the end of where your eye brow is is the best way to fully cover the area and get MAX results. (You may think to your self that this seems like a lot, however a little goes a LONG way. If you look carefully, your under eye area and dark circles/wrinkles usually extend for this entire area.) Rubbing in small circles all over this area stimulates the flow of blood under your eye area causing the under eye circles to disappear! After, simply go to sleep, and in the morning all of the product will have absorbed.

I have been faithfully doing this each night before bed (some nights I do forget, haha) for more then 2 months now, and I have noticed that my under eye dark circles have disappeared almost entirely. Sometimes after I do this at night I will also apply a cold compress under my eyes and this has really helped too! I use far less under eye concealer then I have before, and I have actually had people compliment me and say that I look more rested and they don't notice any dark circles under my eyes and have asked what my secret is!! I PROMISE it is worth the $1.00 you will spend on a jar of this stuff and it is so simple and easy! Good Luck Ladies!
