I posted to here yesterday, but it seems to have disappeared.
Aloette makes 2 awesome eye cream, specifically designed to reduce dark circles . Eye Restore Complex & Advanced Eye Recovery Complex (this one is part of the anti-aging line) Dark circles can be caused by dark pigmentation in the skin. Both products cantain Vitamin K which helps to lighten the skin without bleaching agents. Dark circles can alos be caused by the thinness of the skin & a stretching od the capilarries underneath. Both products also help help with this condition.
The Eye Retore & The Advanced Eye Recovery also help to reduce puffiness, which causes bags & shadows & also help to reduce lines & wrinkles. The Advanced Eye Recovery contain peptides the greatest breakthrough in anti-aging today.
I definately have my father's eye. . . . dark, puffy, saggy, baggy. Aloette's products have made such a defference in my eyes. I have been using these products for 6 years. I turned officially old quite a few years ago. My eye look better now than they did when I was in my early 40's
I had a vague recollection that this was caused by a dificiency. I remember hearing that it resulted from a lack of vitamine K. The following link made an intereseting read also. bags under eyes - HealthBoards
Some people have darks circles relative to their heredity, allergies, or thin skin under the eyes. Examples:

At 32, I have had dark circles under my eyes since I can remember, and it has nothing to do with the amount of sleep I get. They're there to stay, and good concealer is my best friend. (FYI: I am a former make-up artist, have fair skin, and blonde hair.)
If circles are related to fatigue, or you wish to try reducing the appearance of ever-present circles, try one of the following: Hylexin, Peter Thomas Roth Power-K Eye Rescue, or Murad Lighten and Brighten Eye Treatment.
Concealers: Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer or Jane Iredale Covercare Camoflage.
