Any recommendations to help with puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, etc? Need an all-around good eye cream that works as a good moisturizer also-not looking to spend too much money either.

There are two I like a lot - Olay's Regenerist Eye Derma Pods and Estee Lauder's Resilience Lift.

Dr Hauschka's Daily Revitalizing Eye Cream is wonderful! I'm not sure what you consider expensive... this cream runs about $50 for a tube.

Clinique's Repairwear is very good and you usually get a free gift with purchase. Easy to shop online with them and get free shipping. I use that and Perricone, which is not inexpensive. Also, there is a lot of good info on Avon and Mary Kay. They have good products that are not expensive and they are brought to you by the rep.

I seem to need to use less of the higher end stuff. I would just go with a dept store type when it comes to eyecreams. When I go cheap I just have been using olive oil over my eyes to condition my lashes and as a night treatment.

Switching your concealer type may help too. More drying ones can dry the eye area and make the skin thin looking which lets your dark circles show through more. Get a new pillow with an allergy case. Old pillows can make the puffy thing happen from mild allergies.

I also use that on my eyes and face.( Under the eye and on the orbital bone. I skip the actual lid. )
On sale for 10$ now.

Dead layer of skin makes all skin issues worse. Make sure to exfoliate twice a week.

Biodroga makes a great eye cream but it is a little pricey. The same for Sans Sucies. Erno Laszlo is good too. But again, all are pricey.

My experience is that the more expensive eye creams are not that much better than department store or drugstore brands. The important thing is to stay out of the sun, wear sunglasses when you're in the sun, use eye cream (not lotion) at least twice daily, be gentle when touching your eye area, and begin all of these things when you're in your teens. You can't apply eye cream early or often enough.

I am now using Olay's Regenerist thanks to this post, and I can't believe the difference!!!! I can hardly recognize myself. I've been dealing with dark circles under my eyes all my life. Now, I put the cream on and they are GONE. I can't thank you enough!!!

I used Olay's Regenerist line throughout the summer and fall with good results, but the winters here are very dry and the cleanser was drying my face. Now I am using Origins' Starting Over and GinZing, which I got for Christmas. So far, I love them. I wash my face in the shower and moisturize right afterward, and my skin glows. I have definitely noticed the lines around my eyes diminishing.

I might switch back to Olay when it warms up and the humidity comes back, but in the winter, dehydration makes my skin look older.
