    Thank you for the post. It is very useful for almost all soft ware professionals and especially for a person like me who spend so much time in front of a computer almost 10 to 15 hours in a day. What about people who are working in night shifts ?? Can you please give some advise for them also ?

    I hate it when I wake up with bags under my eyes. I used to use real cucumbers (which helps, but gets messy). My doctor recommended the Made from Earth Cucumber Cool Gel – and it works even better than real cucumbers. I have tried every eye product out there and this is simple the best and its simple.
