I like Clinique all about eyes and the Clinique rollerball for eyes. They both help with puffiness.

Yes!!!  And I believe you should start using it in your early 20’s.  I realized this at 30. 😖  I really like and have seen results with Tula.

For wrinkle reduction and moisture use coconut oil, or a beeswax balm at night. Something natural that absorbs well.

nykkee :  I use the cream at night and the rollerball in the morning. I think the rollerball does a good job of reducing puffiness really fast.

Garnier green eyeball roller in the AM. Liquid vitamin E in the PM.

I’ve used the garnier rollerball before but the one with just the clear serum in it so I’m not sure about the one with makeup in it. I liked the garnier one but I think the Clinique is better.

The garnier one I used was in a green tube.

selena1331 :  coconut oil is highly comedogenic. Not ideal as skin care, it’s bad for your pores.

nykkee :  I use Kiehl’S Creamy Eye Treatment and I really like it. I’ve been using it for a while now. I recently started using Dr Sebagh Serum Repair. I tend to use it under my makeup and it works a treat under my eyes. Instantly plumps and tightens. It’s a little more expensive, but it isn’t solely for your under eyes, I just find it does a wonderful job on them.

I’ve always used Clinique products.  I recently swicthed to their Pep Start line and love it (cleanser, eye cream, and moisturizer).  I put it on after I shower in the morning and when washing my face in the evening.

nykkee :  I actually do- I was using one brand for a few months (I love their other products so wanted to try eye cream) and noticed my eyes looking more tired, and puffy. THen I switched to an eye cream that has awesome reviews and after a week my eyes started looking better again.

I’m an esthetician. 

Yes, you need a separate product for your eye area and for very good reasons.

First, the skin around your eyes is the most delicate skin on your body. If the skin on the rest of your face is notebook paper, the skin around your eyes is tissue paper. It can’t handle the same heavy products that the rest of your face can. 

Second, the pores in your eye area are the smallest pores on your body so eye products are specifically designed with smaller molecules so that they don’t clog the micro-pores in that area. You (hopefully) wouldn’t use body lotion on your face, right?

PS: Most eye creams are not designed to go directly on the eye lid! If you want a product that can go on the lid, look for one without Vitamin C.

As far as de-puffing goes, look for an eye cream with caffeine. Caffeine will help to tighten the skin and draw out water. I’ve been using the eye cream from Regenica. It’s available through select physicians– You can probably find an office in your area that carries it on their website.

Hope this helps!
