    I'm posting about the creams you see on the commercial that old people put on to reduce the "bags under the eyes" effect of aging skin.

    Has anyone here tried it? I have serious "bags under my eyes". My Dad had them so I got it from him.

    Doubt if it'd help much overall for me but I'm curious. LOL!

    Pretty sure I heard the best thing for this is haemmorhoid cream

    Not tried it myself. Don't want to milk one, never mind make cream from it

    I think I've seen the TV ad you're talking about...timelapse video etc.
    I'm no doctor...but if I had to guess what the active ingredient was in it, since it's over-the-counter I'm willing to bet the active ingredient is the same thing that's in hemorrhoid cream. That might be cheaper.
    Honestly not trying to be a smart-ass, but I've heard of models using that for under-eye bags.

    I read somewhere that some of these creams are made out of some sort of foreskin cells
    Seriously

    Maybe not the one on the commercial just be careful what you get
    I think a lot of these fountain of youth products just pray on peoples needs to recapture the impossible

    My wife buys me “eye contour gel”. Seems to help.

    I have them too. I guess it's one of the positive things about having to wear glasses, the right frames can hide the bags from the general public. I doubt any creams would have more than a brief effect but I've been wrong before.

    Here's a tip: Don't Google "Facial creams"

    I worked at a place where the staff were mostly women and a only a few guys. Every once in a while at the end of the day in the staff room while making notes them womens would be excitedly chatting about making plans to go get facials together.....me and the boys would just kinda be looking at our feet, shakin' our heads and trying not to make eye contact with each other.....

    The bags under my eyes seem to be interpreted as having great wisdom by others. I think I'll keep 'em.

    If fresh is best i'm surprised no one in Hollywood has rubbed a heammorhoid on them.
    Maybe they do but just don't talk about it?o_O

    I think he should buy all three and do a side-by-side comparison and report back to us.

    the bag under the eyes cream probably IS hemorrhoid cream... sales were low so they needed a new angle to sell more product...:lol:

    You have to be careful to wash your hands between applications from there to there, otherwise you'll end up **** faced. :twisted:

    Bags under the eyes, hemorrhoids, they're both a pain in the a$$.
