Some people don't use 'em, some people must have them. I fall into the latter group. Generally, I feel that the point is ingredient concentration. Skin can only absorb so much, and rather than layer on facial moisturizers on the delicate eye area to try to achieve some effect, I'd rather just pick up a targeted treatment. If you're one of those lucky people who have no undereye issues...*twitch.* Go away. We'll be friends again tomorrow.
|Various eye creams I've tried, either in full or deluxe sample size.|
Typically, I use two different products with specific purposes.
For night, I need something to prevent puffiness in the morning. Also, I can't evaluate any anti-aging claims on a reasonable time frame, but I like having anti-aging ingredients in my nighttime product, as well. I don't mind if it's tacky, because I'm going to bed. My favorites are Ole Henriksen Eye Lift Gel (I've only tried the old formulation, and will have to repurchase the new one the next go around), and Kiehls Midnight Recovery Eye (have gone through a tube of this and would repurchase). The Ole Henriksen does leave the skin noticeably tacky afterward, the Kiehls doesn't. Both combat puffiness. I've also used and liked Philosophy's retinol eye cream, but it kind of stings, so I if I bought a full size, I would probably only use it once a week or so.
Are you one of the lucky, bright-eyed and bushy tailed? Or do you use eye treatments? What are your favorites?
