A colleague saw a thumbnail picture of me from pre-DS days (4 years or so ago), for about 10 seconds and exclaimed "that was from a really long time ago, wasn't it! Definitely before you were a mum!!!"

So I clearly look like shit now. My eyes are the worst affected I think, especially now DS (2.3) has decided to wake at 5am.

Please tell me if there's a magic potion I can apply to roll back the years. I'm despo... <ever hopeful emoticon>

I've been using one from Dermologica that I got given as a free sample and it seems to have brighten up the area. The therapist I had a facial with basically said the same thing as your friend and gave me the cream. I have no idea how much it costs as there's still some left but I bet it's £££££££

A friend of mine is a dermatologist and she recommends 2 brands to all her patients, La Roche Posay and ROC. I use a combination of the 2 and find the ROC Retinox is brilliant.

But, a while ago I read this test of eyecreams, and ROC came out worst!

If you really want to make yourself happy when you look in the mirror, get By Terry Light Expert. I have recommended it here before, but it is the most miraculous cosmetic product I have ever used. It will help you look lovely again smile

I like elemis pro collagen eye cream but it's ££££.

Ooh, these all sound great. Will research them and put a couple on my Christmas list.

Chanel Hydramax+ range is really good; I have a serum I bought in duty free and it's magic.
Pricey though - you should go into a department store or big Boots and go around to all the posh counters getting samples so you can find one you love before forking out.
