Just that! I'm a lens wearer but even when not wearing them my eyes sting and itch from all creams I've tried.
Must be both sensitive as face moisturiser ends up in eyes too!
Am late 30s, combination skin so anti aging creams ideal!

Following because I have the same problem. I have been suspecting the sun protection/spf, but not sure.

I wear la roche posay Redermic C eye cream in the day time and Redermic R eye cream at night. They are the only ones I have found that don't sting my eyes. You could try asking a chemist for little samples to try before you buy.

Pai Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream. I have v. sensitive eyes that are prone to water and itch with a lot of products and this is one of the gentlest I've found. It comes in an airtight pump packaging which is great but you have to be pretty careful about how much comes out as I find a full pump way too much.

For nighttime (and anti-ageing purposes) I use the Verso Super Eye Serum with Retinol, it does sting the skin somewhat but I don't find it irritating but definitely get a sample first (the Pai one should be easy to get a sample of too). It's pricey but twice the size of a normal eye cream so actually quite good value for money. It works brilliantly for me but I use it preventively so can't comment on how well it would do in reversing signs of ageing although other reviews are v. complimentary.

Thank you! Good tip to get samples first!

Clinique. I also wear contacts and have no problems.

I've got ridiculously sensitive skin and wear contacts - Superdrug B. range is great and budget friendly. I use their day, night and eye cream and all feel great

Forgot to say, I was told by beautician to use tiny dab of eye cream gently tapped on using little finger well below lash line and near eyebrow as she said the cream, will kind of spread out...I didn't think this held much sway but since using that technique, no puffy eye reaction to any cream.

Thank you bingo, that looks great. I'm not in UK so don't have superdrug (am ROI) but will check that out next time am there.

La Roche Posay's Toleriane range is the absolute best for sensitive skin IMO.

Will get samples of that too, thanks.

Boots protect & perfect all really sting. As does Clinique.

Started wearing Bare Minerals make up which helps.

Good Luck with your search - another one to think of that I've had good results with is Darphin. smile

Bioderma products are hypoallergenic and effective IME.

Thanks. Boots Simply Sensitive hydrating range are on offer at the moment so bought the eye cream and spf 15 day cream. Very good and no stinging so far!
So need a good anti-aging night cream...
