I currently use the Garnier one which works, but wondered if there were any others that were better?
I know it's not a permanent fix but every little helps.

I've been looking for something too. I'll give the Avon a try.

I've resigned myself to needing a surgical eyelid lift in the future - all of the women in my family have heavy eyelids - my nan actually had hers done on the NHS as they were that bad they were affecting her vision!

I've ordered the Avon one.
I'll hold you personally responsible if it doesn't work wink grin

Creams don't lift eyelids, sorry. That tightening feeling you get is just the cream tightening on the surface of your skin as it dries.

Botox to the forehead lifts eyebrows and droopy eyelids.

Don't spoil it for me cote sad

Sorry. Creams smell nice and feel nice, though smile

Nothing in a cream will work for this. You can botox your eyebrows or have surgery. Some creams may moisturise and puff up the eyelids a bit so they temporarily look a bit fuller, or as CoteDAzur says give a tight feeling as they dry, but no cream is going to achieve actual lift.

Try eye lid tape too. This works a treat, albeit a temporary effect.

I tried that a few years ago Foxy, but it wasn't very good. Maybe my eyelids werent droopy enough then <ponders>
