If not.. is there something else I can use to get rid of dark circles?
Ok, I know this sounds gross but put Preperation H on your
circles, it takes down the puffiness, seriously!!!
There are many reasons why the veins beneath our eyes become more prominent, leading to undereye circles. Exposure to the sun and age often cause the delicate under eye skin to become even thinner and so the veins are more apparent. If you suffer from allergies such as asthma and hayfever, or other skin complaints, you may find that you develop darker under eye circles than others. It is therefore important that you have your allergy properly treated by your doctor.
Another factor is lack of sleep, so obviously one remedy is to ensure you are getting enough. Lack of exercise, excess alcohol consumption can also have an effect.
You can reduce the darkness in the short term by applying slices of cold cucumber or cooled down teabags to the area. This also reduces swelling and puffiness which is another symptom.
Make-up can also prove very successful in disguising under eye circles, as long as you choose the correct product and colour. The best way to choose a special concealer for this area is to choose one in a shade of gold which exactly matches your skin tone. Experts say that the gold colour will counteract the blue/black shade of the under eye area. The concealer/foundation should be applied carefully and blended well, although you must ensure it is a product suitable for the delicate under eye skin. Try not to use too pale a concealer as this will actually work the opposite way and emphasise the area. The shade should really be no more than a couple of shades lighter than your natural skin colour. However, if the circles are of a more gray tone, then you may find a pink toned concealer works better in disguising them.
If you want to draw the attention away from the under eye area, just apply mascara and eyeliner to the top lashes and avoid the bottom. Avoid brown eyeliners and shadows as they enhance under eye circles. Using lighter colours can give the effect of brighter, more open eyes. Remember too that using a white eyeliner will open your eyes, whereas the darker shades can create a more smoky and sensual effect.
Try reading this website too, it is really helpful:
1. Get two normal sized spoons
2. Put them in the fridge overnight
3. When you wake up in the morning, take the spoons out of the fridge.
4. Sit down somewhere and put the spoons against your undereye cirlces and hold them there
5. Hold them there for about 30 seconds to a minute and it will reduce them a lot! Then you might want to wash them. :P
1. Find or buy a tube of preperation H.
2. Take the PH and spread it under you undereye circles, covering all of the circle.
3. Leave it on for a few hours, or until you notice the swelling has gone down.
4. I know it sounds gross and gay, but hey! It works!
To answer you question, no it will not help reduce the appearance of undereye circles, it will really just moisturize. Cocoa butter is more used for stretch marks, to diminish the looks of them.
Hope that I have helped!! :")
I wouldn't use cocoa butter under my eyes or anywhere on my face. It's very comedogenic (causes clogging and breakouts). Dark circles are very hard to get rid of because they are usually hereditary. Your best bet would be an eye cream containing vitamin c (brightens) and/or kojic acid (lifts dark pigment).
You can use any bleaching cream.
That'll make any dark circles or spots disappear.
Cocoa butter moisturizes and even skin tone, but doesn't necessarily get rid of dark circles.
I think it’s important to really understand the causes of you dark circles before trying to treat the dark circles. My friend has serious dark circles and her dark circles are improving by following the information provided by
Cucumber slices, potato juice, teabags are some home remedies for dark circles.More tips and home remedies at

nope, it just moisterizes it. But it doesn't help them go away. What you want to do is get a lot of rest, go to a day spa somewhere and relax.
