In brief: Aquaphor

Vitamin k cream, retinol, glycolic acid, antioxidants in eye creams can help with dark circles.
One of the best things to apply under the eye before bed to prevent wrinkles is aquaphor because it contains petrolatum (also in vaseline).

In brief: They don't help much

Before a person spends money on creams, vitamins, or supplements to try to look better, he should see his regular doctor to be sure he is in good health.
If he is indeed in great health, then his wrinkles and darker lower lids are due to age, sun damage, smoking, or genetics; which means night creams will not make a difference. If he has an illness, then getting healthy may improve his appearance.

In brief: Liver

Bags under eyes is due to kidney issue whereas dark circle is liver issue.
Energize liver with vit b, nac, milk thistle and co-q10 and for face use hyaluronic acid or glycolic acid lotions - first one will freshen skin the second will remove discoloration.

In brief: Preparation h

Preparation h has been used for hemorrhoids which are swelling of veins.
One of the reasons for dark eye circles is superficial blood vessels that may respond to preparation h to improve appearance. Do not get it in the eye , apply downward.
