Edited: Sorry, got you confused w/a new poster whose info. I recently read. You probably already know all this...

Bushy recommended Juvena Juvedical eye serum and I do like it.

Unfortunately, I can't find the companion eye cream anywhere. Wah. The serum is available at Sephora, among other places.

One thing to keep in mind is that too much of a good thing can keep your eyes puffy. Just use the very littlest amount of serum under your eyes. Those pump bottles dispense waaaayyyy to much product. I've perfected the slow, measured squeeze so as not to waste! Laughing

I've used La Prairie eye serum and it was nice, as well.

Some non $$ means of unpuffing (I know, not a word!) is to not drink water for a least an hour before bed and to sleep with pillows to elevate your head (helps w/any drainage that needs to happen).

Dark circles? Don't know. Still looking for the perfect product.

HTH!

I recommend DCX serum (Dark Circle X) from Professional Solutions. Available from either www.dianayvonne.com or from the Professional Solutions website (not sure of their URL).

How about the DDF eye cream with SPF 15? There have been reports here of its depuffing capabilities. Here's the description of it:
Quote:
A luxurious daytime eye cream formulated to reduce puffiness, decrease dark circles, firm and tighten delicate eye area while protecting from future environmental damage.


I kind of disagree with the "luxurious" comment. I have a bottle of this and while I think it's a very good eye cream (it's more of a lotion that a cream actually) I think it is quite bland - I mean this from the marketing point of view I guess. To me luxurious means great packaging, and lovely light scent Embarassed The texture of this is nice but there is no hiding that it smells like sunblock!

I am still a huge fan of the Cellcosemt cream, but I do not think that this would be your best bet for puffiness and circles. Looking at the three eye products they have, the Eye Contour Gel-XT Phyto-Gel sounds best suited. Unfortunately this is the one eye product from Cellcosmet I have not yet tried. I do have the full size of the other Eye Complex gel - this is a thicker consistency gel. Quite nice but I haven't used it on a regular basis because I always tend to reach for the cream version, so again I can't comment either way about this. Sorry, I haven't been much help with this...

I think the only difference between those is the moisturiser. I don't have sensitive skin so it's difficult for me to say, but I for example didn't find the Ultra Vital to seem like a product that would be likely to irritate. I do find it a bit too rich, however, and I have normal skin - so this might be a concern for you if you wanted to use it during the day (I used it at night). To be on the safe side though I'd recommend the sensitive skin one I guess.... Your best bet would be call up the EDS ladies if you can and ask for their advice - they are really helpful!

Isn't there a product called Teamine that is for puffy eyes and dark circles? Also Dermadoctor sells a product called Wrinkle Revenge that is supposed to help with dark circles--they sample btw.

Arbonne offers great eye creme's....I've seen great results when it comes to puffiness, dark circles, and wrinkles. Of course drinking lots of water helps also!
