Done to death but if you are early 40s and using what would recommend?

I've used 8 hour cream
(Basic unscented one) for years. Or break an evening primrose capsule open and dab round eye.

8 hour cream is the best. I feel so much better waking up after some around my eyes (lots actually), on lips and a little on cheeks.

(At night). Find they're ok in the day.

The only eye cream I've noticed any real difference with us Boots No7 Protect and Perfect. I've used a gazillion different creams and while some I like (I've used Clinique All About Eyes a few times) this one actually helps a bit with my dark circles.

The only one that has worked for me is EA prevage. But it is expensive, and I'm not sure the results are worth the money. I still buy it anyway blush

If anyone can recommmend one I'd be most open to trying others (protect and perfect does nothing for my crepey undereyes)

I need one that plumps out the skin under my eyes, because unless I actually go and get my tear troughs filled I think I'm doomed to looking permanently exhausted. (Too scared for tear trough procedure)

I use the Boots P&P intense one during the day but at night I just use the blue pot nivea all over my face including my eyelids. It is great at helping with the dry crepey skin round my eyes but I'm not sure it does anything for dark circles or plumping.

Yves Rocher Riche creme eye cream is the one I have been using for many years. Tried lots of brands, but keep returning to this one. It is on the pricey side but they have all sorts of offers regularly.
