I need a brilliant eye moisturising cream: recommendations?

I've been using that Garnier caffeine roll-on thing which is doing wonders for my dark circles and accompanying under-eye luggage, but that whole area is now desperate for moisture. Cost not an issue but it needs to work! Anyone recommend anything?
Thanks ladies! smile

I love the Simple eye serum. I have sensitive skin that was horrendously dry till I started using it morning and night. It's never a problem now.

Seriously, Aldi Lacura eye cream. In a White tube with pale green/turquoise writing. £3.99 and as good as my Estee Lauder Night Repair one.

I have just started using Estee Lauder re nutriv ultimate lifting cream and it is brilliant. I see an instant improvement to my baggy eyes in the mornings. I do think it is very expensive though. I was lucky enough to get some from a friend at a much reduced price.
It is so good that I think I would be willing to buy it at full pprice in future.

I was using the Night Repair Eye cream. It was nice but I found it a bit "thin"for my eyes.....not that moisturising. It's not just cutbacks....I really rate the firming action of the Aldi one!

Thanks ladies. MissKitty, is the Aldi one on general sale there, not just one of their specials? I don't have a local branch so if I make the trip I want to know it's there!
MissFoodie I've ordered one from your blog site: fingers crossed!

We have Aldi and it's always there.

I can really recomend Oleo Bodycare gentle eye cream, its all natural, a great moisturiser and the other nutriants help with the fine lines in the delicate skin around the eye. About £9.00 from

dermalogica -the dog's bollocks of eye cream

MissFoodie Fri 08-Jul-11 19:20:56

I ordered the Teneave serum, which arrived this morning. Will give it a go tonight...

the eye cream or the face oil? both are nice, am using their lip balm at the moment - has a lovely mintyness to it

The eye cream. I've had a couple of days use out of it now, and so far it's working well. Nice and light, but rich and silky. Lovely fragrance too. The only thing that worried me is that it felt a little burn-y when I first used it. My skin can be quite sensitive but no bad side effects yet! Thanks for the recommendation!
