I have lines around my eyes and I don’t like them, do any eye creams actually work?

I’m 39, have a lot of health conditions and am going through early menopause. My skin is generally good and having spend most of my life working for Clinique and then Chanel you’d reckon I’d know the answer to this but that was years ago and I want to know what people are using now...

So, do any eye creams actually work for lines around the eyes? That’s the only place I have lines / wrinkles and they make me look older than I am and tired. I don’t want to look 21 again; just the best I can for my own age.

I already drink a lot of water / eat healthily/ etc etc. I’m starting HRT this week so I’m hoping that will help with my skin as well.

Any budget considered!

I do think no7 perfect and protect works.

Thank you, I will have a look at that online. One brand I hadn’t considered!

Red light led eye mask.

I've been using the Temple Spa one, winner of 2020 Beauty Bible award.
Been using it twice a day for around two weeks now, and I think there's an improvement.
Have a look at BB website for their reviews of 2020 award winners.

I have dry eyes that can get irritated, I use Elemis pro collagen eye mask and Bobbi Brown extra eye repair. Both are lovely and do make a difference. Alpha H liquid gold eye cream is good too but not that moisturising.

I tried every eye cream going from £5 to £100+, none of then did anything profound. I have Botox twice a year and it's amazing, it looks natural and actually works out cheaper than the eye creams I was buying.

Creams only really work temporarily to plump the wrinkles i've not found any that can reverse them, I still do use creams so that dryness can't cause them to become worse. I find that botox is the best, it doesn't erase all wrinkles but it refreshes the face, I have it done about 3x a year.

Thank you for all your suggestions everyone.
