Help me rewind time!!

I always looked young for my age.  When I was in my early years of teaching - despite being all dressed up & in heels I actually got in trouble a few years for being in the halls (they thought I was a student).  When I was married and had my first child (age 27) I was reprimanded about being a "young mom" by a checkout lady.

Anyway - those days are long gone.  At 42, my face is finally catching up to my age - and possibly surpassing it.  :(  Honesty, I don't do anything other than wash it.  No lotions or creams or masks or anything, (I don't wear makeup either) but I think I need to start using something.

The worst part is my eyes - dark circles/bags under my eyes.  Any suggestions on the best products to use??

    I use the Simple brand - it's found at WalMart, Target, Walgreens....relatively inexpensive. I used to use the Philosophy line and loved it. Not sure why I switched other than sometimes I feel like I just need a change.

    I think I have an eye thing from Olay, but I didn't use it long enough to notice any difference. Out of lazyness, I didn't have any issues with it or anything.

    I've always looked young for my age and would get mistaken for a teen mom.  I'm 35 now and I DO notice little things.  I switched over to olive oil soap to wash my face (best thing ever) and moisturize and use sunscreen.  For my eyes, I use Oil of Olay eye cream (I forget which one) and for my face, I use a light moisturizer at night (DH is addicted to Ole Henrickson so I use that - it's a Vitamin C cream) and I use sunscreen during the day.
