Under eye creams take time to actually show the effects. No matter how superb formula an under eye cream has, the day to day stress can counteract the effects of under eye creams. You will see a noticeable difference in the dark circles only if you use an eye cream daily for a period of 4 weeks or even more than that. Also do not forget to get a good sleep and eat some wholesome food to maintain the health of your eyes.
