I use Mario Bodescu products. You can buy them online, via the phone. Nordstrom's has a limited selection but since they don't carry everything, I buy mine online. Another brand that I also use is DH. All of the products are olive oil based. They're available online as well.

Correction to my above post...the Japanese line is called DHC. It's really good stuff - I hear popular in Japan and Japanese women seem to have really nice skin. They have this one product called Velvet Skin Coat that I adore.

Oh my God lisak64 Do you realise that i have told people about dhc and not one person i have ever told has heard of it. I loooovvveee the stuff. I use the olive oil collection by them. My dad was born in sicily & my grandmothers answer to everything is olive oil every cut scab or wrinkle olive oil is her answer. Since no one ever heard of it i always kept it my little secret. The olive milk is the best thing ever I swear you just made me feel like i wasnt nuts. Thank you so much. And yes give them a try they also give you free sample if you call them. Vitamin k is still good for the circles though

I use Clinique Moisturizer because I'm not allergic to it.

In general, you don't need to spend a lot of money of skin products. The brand name stuff contains the same ingredients as the stuff you buy as Rite-Aide.

I bought some Mario Bodescu for my daughter--who had post-partum skin problems. They worked above average, and come highly recommended.

Just remember to stick to a 'treatment' and not a 'cosmetic'. There are tons of products that can make your skin "look" like whatever you want it to look like but pay attention to the active ingrediants and research what the long lasting overall effects will be.

I guess the secret if "out of the bag". You're the only other person I've encountered that's ever heard of it, lol! Other customers must be out there somewhere. It is great stuff. Olive oil based products are wonderful and this line is good and a bargain considering how great it is.

I LOVE DHC products! I use their cleansing oil and their Acerola set (treatment, toner and gel moisturizer). I think the Acerola line definitely brightened up my skin thanks to the Vitamin C content. And the cleansing oil is a great first step to remove makeup before cleansing. I use DDF's Glycolic Cleanser after the cleansing oil and my skin feels clean and exfoliated!

Under eye circles can be due to a wide vary of things.
Heridatary-sinus-loss of sleep-circulation-dehydration and others.
Diet can help, omega 3's either in a supplement-(make it a good one) or foods like salmon-herring-sardines. A great cover up for them is by Jane Iredale cosmetics called circle delete. Mineral Makeup-very nice line-no chemicals-good luck!
