Fast Lift Eye Serum is my holy grail of eye care.  It’s a serum tht absorbs quickly.  I’ve used it {and the whole line} for years.  Their products are great for a aging skin” and aren’t we all aging?

Well, I don’t know about EYE CREAM SPECIFIALLY, but I do know that using high quality moisturizers for your face/problem areas on your face really will show results with time. My mom has ALWAYS used some kind of fancy moisturizer cream for her face, she’s now in her mid-forties, and doesn’t have a single wrinkle or that ‘aged’ look. Moisturizer does miracles, and I think if you have puffy eyes often, doing something about that continually will help reduce it drastically, and not make it worse as you age! Also, drinking lots of water regularly and getting good sleep will help. Best of luck!

nykkee :  You definitely shouldn’t be using your regular moisturizer in your eye area. That can contribute to premature aging as well as formation of milia– those teeny tiny stubborn little white heads that are impossible to extract. Only your eye cream should go in the eye area. 

ETA: Your eye cream will work its magic to hydrate your lids as you blink during the day. You CAN use an eye cream without vitamin C if you want something you can use directly on your eyelids.

I 100% believe in eye cream. I honestly think even just a super moisturizing formula works wonders, but if you want to go above and beyond. I use a retinol eye cream at night and then a special cream in the morning to perk up my eyes. The day of my wedding, we used eye patches (which are just like moisture surge masks) and then followed up with caffeine eye cream and we all looked awesome.

If you want just something super hydrating this is my favorite. It feels like butta going on: http://www.ulta.com/smoothing-eye-concentrate?productId=xlsImpprod3970071&sku=2239870&cmpid=PS_Non!google!Product_Listing_Ads&cagpspn=pla&CATCI=pla-168286444590&CAAGID=29315862390&CAWELAID=1102909970&catargetid=330000200000765679&cadevice=c&gclid=CjwKEAiA8JbEBRCz2szzhqrx7H8SJAC6FjXXyB7VBfpZEWzoxwIp30YlgUiiohBjpCacn524iKuU4hoC0urw_wcB

For real, I like to mix a little aloe with my normal face moisturizer and put that around my eyes. Works like a charm 🙂

MrsSMFC :  Huh, that’s really useful, thank you! I always kinda ignored the product direction to avoid the eye area with facial moisturiser. No more! 😄

I never believed in eye cream until this year.  I noticed that my eyes were looking a little haggard.  Used a gentle retinol formula and that helped with some of the crepiness (okayed by my derm).  Then got a mini version of the Rodan and Fields eye cream and have really loved the results!  For some reason my eye area has aged a lot in the last 5 years and it’s rolled it back about 5 years in the last few months.

nykkee :  I would discontinue the salicylic acid product for 2-3 days before using the glycolic product. Both of those products will facilitate exfoliation so you don’t want to over-strip your skin.
