As anyone, who reads this blog regularly knows, I’m obsessed with finding a cure for my dark, under eye circles. Well, turns out, it was next to the toilet bowl cleaner at Walgreens all this time. Huh? What?
I lived in my old apartment for 14 years. When I was packing up to move, I had an apocalyptic allergy attack from all the dust I unearthed.
It’s not like I never cleaned my apartment, but apparently dust is very stealth. I found it on top of books, underneath stereo equipment, clinging to lamp shades. In fact, the top of my armoire was so covered in a puffy cloud of dust, that I half-expected an angel to be up there playing a harp.
I realized that when I moved to a new, fresh, dust-free apartment, I no longer looked like I’d just participated in a sleep deprivation experiment. My dark circles had decreased by at least 70% and my eyes were no longer red and glassy. (The only negative side effect, is the whites of my eyes are now so white, they’re making my teeth look more yellow.)
I’m getting to the product, I swear.
When I was having my allergy attack, in my old apartment, my mother recommended I get a Swiffer Duster. So I did. It’s the best under eye product for dark circles I’ve ever found, because it turns out my dark circles were caused by allergies.
Just wave the Swiffer Duster around on your furniture and dust gravitates towards it and clings to it, like Jennifer Aniston to the wrong guy.
It easily maneuvers into hard to reach places, so there’s nowhere for dust to hide. Use it on furniture, plants, tops of books, knickknacks (you’re supposed to dust knickknacks? You mean that wasn’t a Chia Pet on my shelf?)
Since I’ve started using it, it takes me mere minutes to make my entire apartment dust-free.
So if you have dark circles and/or puffy eyes (caused by allergies) get yourself a Swiffer Duster. It could be the cheapest, best under eye product you ever buy.
Since my cats' dander is contributing to the dust, I thought it was only fair that they help with the cleaning. (That’s a joke. I swear that’s not my cat.)
