MRS MOP; We don't all manage eight hours' sleep, especially not with little Mops about the place, so which dark circle-blitzing correctors will rid you of unwanted baggage? I've tested a few, here's my top of the Mops.

Weil for Origins Mega Bright dark circle minimizer

This works on strengthening and re-densifying a dark under-eye zone using natural extracts such as grapefruit and magnolia. It absorbed quickly and was very soothing. Although it took a couple of weeks to do the trick, now I hardly have to use my concealer.

Soap & Glory Puffy Eye Attack Turbo Boost Hydragel

This has cucumber extract and soy and rice peptides for soothing and deflating dark bags, along with hard-hitting hydrators including shea butter for softer and smoother skin. It took along time to absorb but certainly reduced puffiness. My dark circles were unchanged though.

Mother's little helper

Tackling the problem of, "Is it OK to use the bread knife to spread the mayo when making a sarnie?", Kuhn Rikon bring us the Sandwich Knife, PS12.95. The serrated edge cuts bread, cheese, veggies etc, the smooth edge spreads, plus the blade is extra wide for cutting even deep-filled sandwiches easily.

But be warned, you might end up with mayonnaise on your cucumber.

Filorga Time Filler Eyes

A multi-tasking cream inspired by treatments such as botox, peels, fillers and mesotherapy. As well as tackling dark circles, it aims to plump hollowness, firm up saggy eyelids and smooth out crows' feet. It even claims to thicken and lengthen eyelashes while it's at it.

It certainly delivered results, my dark circles were dramatically reduced. You only need a tiny amount so it lasts a long time, too.

If you're a salad dodger, have a look at the latest beauty drink from Fountain. The Super Green Molecule, PS27.99, is a blend of chlorophyll, kelp and other virtuous detox-y things. And it's so concentrated, just one teaspoon is the equivalent of six bowls of dark green leaves.

FANCY THAT!
