Have I read caffeine (in products) works? Or am I confusing that with cellulite?

100% Pure has a caffeine eye cream that's really good.

Re: Dr. Oz. He's a heart doctor. How would he know what to use on under eye bags? I don't listen to a word he says. I don't watch his program.

Look for a gel with green tea and caffeine. Origins No Puffery is a good one to try.

Surgery.

I had a co-worker who had lovely skin EXCEPT for un-eye bags. She had surgery, no external stitches, little down time.

It was fabulous we were all amazed. She said the money she spent on lotions and such over the years probably cost more than the surgery.

I had it done, too -- and NO down time. It was hereditary fat pouches. Unfortunately they've returned somewhat when I've gained weight PLUS I've lost the "good" fat around my eyes with age.

Wayne Goss talked about a procedure he had done and the before and after was really wonderful. It was more filling in the depressions rather than removing anything. Not available in the US currently, though.


Same here. The procedure to fill in depressions sounds very interesting. Hope we see more of that here and that a drug company will run clinical trials soon.

I use the Genie Line smoother from here on the Q. Would not leave the house without it. To test it sometimes I put it on just one eye and ask DH which looks better. He has ALWAYS picked the Genie eye. With this product less is more. Works great for me!

The skin around your eye is the thinnest layer of skin on your entire body, and the most sensitive skin. Eye creams can, and often do, show results if they are used appropriately and for a long enough time.

 

The trick is to find the best eye cream for your skin's needs. If you feel like you've been duped by the hundreds of eye creams on the market promising to erase your dark circles, puffiness and fine lines, you probably haven't tried the ones that have proven results and scientifically researched ingredients that assure you of the same……


There really are skincare options that work beautifully for an eye area, an eye cream product for your skincare regimen like Eyevage cream and many other available in stock. It's true that skin everywhere on the face should be treated to formulas that don't cause irritation or a sensitizing reaction.

 

What the eye area really needs are antioxidants, cell-communicating ingredients, and skin-repairing ingredients, in a soothing, fragrance-free formula, just like what you need for the rest of the face.

 

Whether you decide to use a product labeled eye cream or a facial moisturizer/serum that you can use around your eye area, make sure it's a fragrance-free formula packed with the types of ingredients we mentioned earlier- antioxidants, cell-communicating ingredients, and skin-repairing ingredients to fight wrinkles, stimulate collagen production without irritation.

 

All choice is yours, I was there to suggest you for the best!
