I don’t want to get a surgery that will be $400+ and have it desolve in 6 months. Currently I use Murad eye lifting cream. It works well but if you miss a few treatments; yikes. I ordered Kate Somerville Retinol Eye Firming Cream because it’s the highest rated eye cream on Ulta.
A little background I only have lines when I smile however they are deep and no dark circles. However I have small eyes and don’t need this in my life. I also don’t wear makeup so that’s not an option for me.

How can surgery dissolve? Guessing maybe 'devolve' might be a better word, if I try to figure out what you're getting at. I think you meant the improvement lasts only 6 months. Sounds like a bad idea. That's about $67/month and going under the knife twice a year.

I'm using a similar product (retinol) by LilyAna and I like it, but I haven't used it long enough (a month?) so I don't know if I will like it long term. Many of us are using similar products. We should have a topic that compares them all. I'm thinking of trying Retin A.

Your OP does not appear to have a question.

I didn’t mean surgery. I meant injections.
Retain A is good for hyper pigmentation as well. Vitamin C can be helpful too.

Okay, I get it now. I was researching Retin A but decided to stick with the LilyAna retinol for the time being, see if it does any good after a few months use.

It's not clear what you want from this topic. It's clear that the first alternative is too expensive. I don't know about Retin A simply because I don't know how long a 40g or 45g tube lasts. My LilyAna retinol seems relatively inexpensive but I don't know if it works. I got it from Amazon.

Just looking for ways and/or products others use to combat the problem.

Aha! Now we're at the root of the discussion. There's one more product I know about:

Swanson Pycnogenol Wrinkle Cream 2 fl Ounce (59 ml) $10.96 at Amazon

I heard about this product from jamminhealth here on the forum. She makes her own now, from pycnogenol capsules and some other stuff, you can see my topic on SeroVital or perhaps jammin' will see this topic.

It's a dark orange cream and medium thick, too thick for me and has a bit of an odd smell but not anything you notice after it's applied.

The LilyAna retinol is an odorless, white cream with a light texture and vanishes better than the pycnogenol product. The LilyAna is more expensive but due to the thickness of the pycnogenol it seems to get used up more quickly, can't apply small amounts as well as the LilyAna.

I don't know which one works better and I'm not helping things by using one or the other sort of random.

Maybe somebody else can add some more similar products or compare and contrast the three we have so far.
