Suggestions for under eye moisturizer to use before concealer

Does anyone have anyone have any suggestions for an under eye moisturizer to use before applying concealer?  I've used Bobbi Brown under eye cream for ages and was thinking of trying something new.  Over 60 with some wrinkles.  TY!

I like to first apply some hyaluronic acid serum.  I think it makes a difference when you hydrate first and then moisturize. Then I moisturize with either Mad Hippie Eye Cream or Acure Radically Rejuvenating Eye Cream.  I'm 65 and this works well for me.

I use the MD Complete Eye Wonder.  It's from their Dermatologics Line.  It's more expensive than their regular line but I think the results that you get are worth the higher price.   

 

It is very thick though so you have to be careful to use only a tiny bit.  If you apply too much it will not sink into your skin and will look very shiny.

I use Clinique smart clinical repair.

 

Its a wrinkle correcting eye cream.

I love the Tatcha serum stick, and their eye cream. I also use and recommend Josie Maran eye devotion.

@kitty76 

I agree with @JeanLouiseFinch to use a Hyaluronic Acid Serum first, then moisturizer, then concealer.

 

I use Naturium's Hyaluronic Acid serum + Peptide Eye Cream.  I do not have any pilling.

@kitty76 Unfortunately it is mostly trial & error to see what works for you.

I'm 62 & I need moisture around my eyes. 

I have used all of the expensive creams & I have found 3 favorites.

Acure Radically Rejuvenating Eye Cream-Neither radical or rejuvenating but it is a great, moisturizing eye cream for about $15. It is a 1oz tube.

Trader Joe's Supreme Hydrating Eye Cream. It is only $7 for .53oz & it is wonderful.

Vichy Minéral 89 Eyes Hyaluronic Acid Eye Gel Cream is the most expensive at $24.99 but I get it when it is on sale. 

I don't have a lot of wrinkles around my eyes. Either because I use these eye creams twice a day or just because I don't.

When I need an extra boost before concealer or later in the day to freshen up my eye are I use Velamo Advance Retinol Eye Stick. I get it on Amazon for about $20. I saw a youtube person use it before her concealer & it looked so nice & smooth I had to have it.

I am on my 3rd tube & my daughter ordered it after trying mine.

When I get to the end of the tube I scrape out the rest (there is a lot in there still).

Hello @kitty76 . I love Bobbi Brown's Hydrating Eye Cream. There's also one in the EXTRA line that's more emollient, but just a bit for day wear and I'd use it mostly at night. 

 

I'm now using one by Kiehl's and have always added a tiny drop of oil before any eye cream to first prep the area.  

 

Hope this helps.

@kitty76 ...personally I use and love Shiseido Benefiance eye cream...this one cream does it all.  That said, I would try what @SurferWife surfer suggested...because I like a hyaluronic applied first.  Hyaluronic is always a nice plumping prep., and our skin loves it.  I have not tried Naturium eye cream, but, for price, and ingredients I'd surely give it a try.    If you want to cut to the chase...order the Shiseido...apply over moist skin...its wonderful.  Very rich.   Macys often has it on sale, and tjMaxx has it at half price if you catch it while there.

Re: Suggestions for under eye moisturizer to use before concealer

@JeanLouiseFinch , you mentioned hyaluronic for under eyes...which do you use?   I've used several different ones, Dr.Brenner, Timeless...I think I tried The Ordinary and if I remember right it was stringy, sticky.
