Hi, I am trying to reduce under eye puffiness and wrinkly eyelids. I've tried some popular firming eye creams but they have left my eyelids red, rough, itchy and scaly. I've always had sensitive eyelids and I typically cannot wear pearl or frosted eyeshadows for the same reason. Is there any firming eye cream for sensitive eyes (reasonably priced) that I can use on my eyelids that won't cause a breakout? Thanks for your help!
You might try going to some of the mid-priced department stores. Most of them can give you small samples that you can try until you find something you can tolerate Otherwise, you might try looking for home made recipes on the internet and try some of those out. I found some very good masks and facials out there.
You should go to the Paula's Choice website and look for her advice on eye creams, esp how most eye creams are not formulated any differently than other face creams except that the jar is smaller and costs you more money. Search her site for steps you can take to find out what really works. You can also get her advice on facebook. Good luck!
