I need something that will deal with dark circles, some puffiness and now the onset of wrinkles! shock

I have always used Clinique All About Eyes, and although it is good on the dark circles it doesn't seem to do much for the wrinkles. I have tried the No.7 Protect and Perfect one but I don't really like it, it does nothing for the dark circles - not to mention the bloody daft design of the pot which makes it impossible to get the stuff out.

What do I need - please share your secrets!

PS - I don't like the Clarins Flash Balm Eye stuff either. <awkward emoticon>

Hey we should be in bed that would be a a start wink. Not much works really when you think about it a cream is not going to cut it.

I cover mine with Lancome anti-cernes softening concealer. It is often genes unfortunately. Better than bags though.

Yeah wouldn't it . That of course is the major problem, lack of sleep!

For the wrinkles I haven't found anything that actually works!
But for the dark circles and puffiness a bit more sleep and drink water should help a bit.
But dark circles can be hereditary so not much you can do about that except cover it.

If it's puffiness as opposed to bags, it could be due to dehydration or the eye cream you're using is a bit too rich. But you can do something about that, for bags the only answer is surgery.

Can you tell I've done extensive research into eye wrinkles and dark circles!!

I actually like this Liz Earle one for the daytime. It says it has "Light-reflective particles conceal and help brighten dark under eye shadows while SPF10 mineral sunscreen protects against UV light." I think it does make my eyes look better and it's pretty light to use in the daytime.

I tend to use either of these Elemis or Burts Bees ones for the evening. The Burts Bees one smells divine too.

There are no bags thank goodness!

That is discouraging that there is nothing that combats the wrinkles - I have to say that at the moment they are very fine lines but until recently there was nothing but smooth skin so things are definitely starting to head downhill!

Boots Protect and Perfect eye cream is fantastic for bringing down swollen under eyes.

for the wrinkles try the kiehls avocado eye cream. i think it works well and feels lush. Agree you'll need more sleep and lots of water to help the dark circles.

I really like Avon eye lift which has a cream for under eyes and a lifting gel for upper eye lids.
