wide . awake . Monday

I've had dark circles under my eyes since before I can remember. Not really the "You look a smidge tired," dark circles, but the "Wow, you look like you haven't slept in months" dark circles. Until a few days ago, I assumed that there were two things that could be done about this: (1) Get a series of painful and expensive injections under my eyes to "plump" up the thin skin there, or (2) Find a good concealer.

(If you can't guess, I've stuck with option #2).

I never bought into the serums, creams, etc. that all claimed daily use would rid you of dark circles. If that's all it took, absolutely no one would sign up for the injections.

Then the other day, a sample of Chanel Sublimage Regenerating Eye Cream came with my nail polish.

I figured since it was already here, I might as well try it. After just a day and a half, I was so stunned that you could knock me over with a feather. This morning I woke up and (I kid you not) already looked like I had concealer on. My dark circles were much less visible and the skin around my eyes was brighter.

Now the downside of this - I've discovered - is that a full size order is prohibitively expensive. But hey, there's always the hope that my sample will last until I win the lottery, right?
