Dry patches of skin under eyes - which cream to use?
You sound exactly like me! Iv found vitamin e oil spread copiously at night soaked in nicely. Mines just from Superdrug. Vaseline i found good for keeping on top of it, so when the dry patches go, then I cover eyes in Vaseline at night.
Sounds weird but try Lanisoh, it's an intensive moisturising cream designed for sore nipples (was BF when I started using it!), but as someone who suffers from extremely dry skin Ive found its worked wonders on my dry skin on my forehead, mouth and feet! You can buy it in books but it's cheaper on amazon. Hope that helps.
I've got myself a small tub of organic extra virgin coconut oil so will see if that makes a difference. I have a retinol serum which has really improved the lines under my eyes but I've not used it since this flared up in case it exacerbated it.
To the PP who asked, yes the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer is good but I recently tried a bit of the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer under my eyes and the difference was amazing. Better coverage and it didn't slip into the fine lines under my eyes either, like every other concealer does. Shame it's nearly £40 for a small pot!
