If you had to prioritize; are you trying to reduce the puffiness or to minimize the lines?
I don't mind laugh lines, crows feet.. they are minimal for me. the problem is.. there are lines under the 'bags' - sort of outlining the bags.. which is what i dislike. so i'm not really sure how to answer ... in general i don't have many line. what are you thinking?
hhhhmmm. have you tryed Avon? Try their "Eye lift pro" In all honesty compared to all the other retailers its not a bad price and if you dont like it you can retrun it and get your money bakc. you can also ask an Avon rep for a FREE sample.
Or yould also try AVONS NEW eye treament cream called "Genics". Again compared to other retailers its not a bad price and you can always return it and get your money bakc if you dont like it even after you opened it and tryed it. I hear it soiposed to work wounders on the eye area, so it may be worth a shot

When it comes to line fillers a lot of them work to plump up the skin to help minimize the lines, whereas creams to diminish puffiness work against that. It's not that they're drying per se, but if you're taking the volume down the lines may become more obvious.
Does that make sense?
Shiseido is by far the best i've seen, a little expeansive, but worth it go to a dillards or macys and find a shiseido counter they will do a free facial massage using the eye cream

You are beautiful without make up :-) ... my mum (and many of my mother of the bride clients) have a similar problem. My mum saw a plastic surgeon about the issue to see if there was a non-invasive way to remove some of the puffiness from the bags under her eyes. He informed her that the illusion of bags and puffiness under her eye was not an excess that needed to be removed but it actually caused by a loss of collagen beneath the skin and a loss of skin elasticity in the eye area he advised the only way to remedy this is with fillers to plump out the skin around "the bag". I help out my mum and my clients by using a combination of concealers to attempt to minimise shadows and bring forward the skin around the puffiness. I use a skin tone concealer to conceal any darkness or discolouration and then I use a lighter (about 2 shades lighter) directly in the crease below the puffiness. This will give the appearance of bringing this area forward and making t appear less deep, minimising the appearance of the puffiness. It will help to experiment with different shades and blending until you find what is perfect for you but just keep in mind light and shade in the same way we contour and highlight but just on a smaller more detailed scale. I hope this helps :-) Much Love
ps - if any of my rambling doesn't make any sense please message me or leave a comment on my profile :-) xoxo
Hi Sherri. I advise for you to try out Benfits cosmetics. They have an amazing eye concealer, called "stay don't stray" its amazing because it brightens and reduces dark circles and can be used all around the eye and it won't clump or look heavy. But what i find works on a lot of my customers is combining that with the "It's potent" eye cream. mix them both together when applying if your in a rush. It boost micro circulation to the skin of the eye which means it reduces puffiness and dark circles.
Let me know how it goes.!

Thx Secretlysarahann S., his video was amazing... I did try that... but maybe the line under the bag is too deep set already... didn't melt away like his... but I'll keep trying just in case it's technique! If anyone hears of a great product like Genie instant line smoother or Peter Thomas Roth Instant FIRMx Eye, please let me know.. hoping someone makes one without the white crust effect..lol
