Creamy formulas clog pores especially around the eye area. Avoid heavy formulas and go for serums. They are light, refreshing and moisturizing. Gone are the days when women used Vaseline around their eyes, making things worse.
I made the mistake of using heavy creams on my eyelids years ago and ended up with a painful sty. The sty disappeared in time, but it left me with a hefty doctor’s bill. Since then I stick to serums. None have erased the signs of aging overnight, but they have kept the delicate skin around my eyes hydrated. I’m sure some serums have improved my skin slightly.
Just tried Advanced Night Repair Serum by Estée Lauder and I have enjoyed the benefits of waking up to less puffy, hydrated eyes. It is very light and as with any Estée Lauder product, the scent is subtle and fresh.
It is fast absorbing, and I agree. In time, I hope to see more of the results this product promises.
