Best eye cream for sensitive skin?

Can anyone recommend one? I get a little patch of eczema on my eyelid and I'm looking for something that won't aggravate that but that might help in my battle with the wrinkles (or that will at least make me believe it's helping!).

I've tried Dermalogica (but a while ago and can't remember which one), Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and Liz Earle (their smoothing serum one I think) but haven't found one I love yet.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

If it's excema, perhaps best staying away from perfumed heavy products. Have you tried Aveeno?

I've had problems with eczema around my eyes and now use Dr Hauschka eye balm - It's fantastic although a little greasy but no more eczema since I started using it and my fine lines are less noticeable too.

Thanks for replies. I have tried Aveeno on recommendation from several people who say it's great but unfortunately it just doesn't seem to work for me.

Will definitely give the Dr Hauschka one a try though - it sounds great.

Optimism - also forgot that I used this gel when I was really suffering with severe eczema - It sorted out the problem quickly along with the Dr Hauschka. Hope that helps.

I love I use alot of their products they are gorgeous.

I also really rate SBC collagen serum which i use all over my face including the whole eye area. I have super sensitive skin and patches of flakey skin all around my eyes (until I discovered this) and I have none now, plus it has really reduced my wrinkles.

I have little patch of eczema on my eyelids too.
I love This
it comes in a little pump bottle to, so no its always fresh to use and I don't even use a full pump.
1/2 pump, gently pat across and around my eyes, it takes a minute to soak in because I don't rub it in but it has cleared up my little patches of eczema on my eyelid amazingly.
