Eye cream with SPF??

I am looking for an everyday eye cream that contains an SPF - not a suncream, just a light cream that also does the usual anti-bags/puffy etc. I cannot find one anywhere, and when I have asked at the beauty counters they look at me like I'm mad. An Estee Lauder lady said 'Why would you want that?' Erm, surely the first part of anti-aging is using an SPF in the first place, rather than relying on 'magical' creams that will reverse the damage later...?
Seems bizarre that I can get a good facial moisturiser that contains an SPF but I then leave out my eye area.
I just found a new freckle just under my eye (horror of horrors). I don't like using my normal SPF moisturiser under my eyes as it makes it puffy.
Seems I have found an empty niche in the market - someone feel free to fill it.

Agree with you completely, I've had the same trouble looking but have found two. Boots time delay eye cream with spf15 and also superdrug do a vitamin e eye cream with spf15. I prefer the boots one as seems to absorb better. I usually stock up when they have those £5 off skincare vouchers.

Brilliant - I'll give them a go. Thanks!

The best one I ever got was clinique derma White eye cream with SPF 15. I bought it in hong kong but not available here. May be on eBay (will have to have a look now!).
