That actually have some effect on crow's feet! Have tried many over the years, without finding anything that has helped beyond hydrating the area a bit. Ideally not too many £, but beginning to despair... TIA

Surely someone must know more about this than me? smile

Having tried many eye creams I don't think any have an effect on crowd feet except like you said hydrating !! I've stopped using them now and use glycolic nip and fab pads , a cheap serum and moisturiser and retin a ! Can see a considerable difference around eyes and forehead lines smile have a look at the amazing faces thread , there are lots of good skin care ideas smile

Crows not crowd !!

Now that is interesting. Will take a look at that thread, but can I ask where you get you glycolic pads please, and how much you pay?

You need Retin A cream , works wonders .
I get mine from friend who goes to middle east where you can buy over the counter .
eBay maybe?

Sorry for the interruption but what type of Retin A cream? Could you maybe link? There is SO many different ones when you google!!!

Nip and fab glyclolic pads from boots about 12£
I get the jennsen ( made by johnsons ) in the blue and white tubs from ebay ,, the seller was abhealth care but they haven't any at the minute , but other sellers have it , currently looking for a new seller ! I started on 0.05 but it's recommended to start on 0.25 and build up ! My skin is tolerant to the higher one though ! I did initially use la Roche posay redermic R for a few week prior so maybe that's why Mr tolerance was good !
