I was in Sephora today checking out eyecreams (I'm on the hunt) and was told that eyecream should only be applied on the orbital bones and not directly underneath or above the eyes. The SA said the cream will migrate/spread out to the areas right around the eyes - and that the reason I get milia is because the product has "nowhere to go" so comes back up instead as a bump.

Does anyone know if this is true? (as a side note, she said she learned this when she worked for Shiseido)

I don't know if it's true but I was told the same thing by an esthetician. However, I don't understand the migrating concept. Yes I think it can migrate a bit, but I have doubts that it would migrate enough to cover the entire area. Especially in an upward direction. How does eye cream move from the bone under your eye all the up way to the lashes?

I was thinking about it and remembered that the SA was talking about how the skin around the eyes is like tissue paper and doesn't produce oil. Maybe it's like if you were to stick half of a tissue in water, the water will eventually seep into the dry half. Sounds possible in theory....

I'm not sure if this is true or not, but the described application method is the way that most eye creams say you should apply them. I generally apply right up to the lash line, otherwise the eye area feels dry. I haven't had millia problems unless the cream has been too rich (and sometimes not even then, so I'm not sure what else it depends on). Also, there are some creams that I don't apply to the eyelid, either because they make my eyes puffy or because they hace actives that I am not comfortable putting on the eyelid.
