Hello.

Thanks for posting your query.

Dark circles have a multifactorial etiology- vitamin deficiency, sun exposure, inadequate sleep, anemia, applying XXXXXXX etc all can add to dark circles.

A comprehensive treatment for the dark circles include targetting all the parameters mentioned and using topical creams containing Kojic Acid, Vitamin C, Arbutin, Mandelic acid, mild steroids, etc.

In case, the creams doesn't show results, other options include Peels and Fractional lasers.

In case anaemia or dietry deficiency is present, they should be treated with nutritional supplements.

A Dermatologists advice should be taken and one should be patient enough to see results as the condition responds slowly to treatments.

Hope, this answers your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Regards.

Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks again.

It is difficult to comment on an OTC product which is out of domain of medicine. Hence I am unable to provide you with any information regarding Garnier Light.

Hope I have answered all your queries. Please accept my answer if you do not have any follow up queries.

Regards
