Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced line of products for me...I am looking for my mom:)

She is 66, smoker(always quitting), dry to normal, no big problem with enlarged pores, some sun damage, dicolorations, sagging and wrinkles. I think what bothers her most is the eye area, heavy bags under and over the eyes and dark circles- does'nt run in the family and she thinks it was caused by malaria(sp?) as a child. Good Lord LOL, she sounds like a monster! Actually she is gorgeous with dark hair and green eyes and a nice figure. She has a beautiful widows peak which she likes but covers it with bangs because she feels her brow is too wrinkled.

she has been watching me try new products I have learned about from this forum- with a wary eye and skeptical attitude- I ramble on and on about a new stuff I am trying and her response has been a tight lipped-"good luck" LOL. But now she is seeing a difference in my skin over the last few months and is interested. She has always used oil of olay but is finally willing to try something different. I need some help finding a line of product for her. Especially the eye area, something to help depuff the upper and lower bags.

I personally have been using cellular skin rx line- VitC sreum, age limit refinishing serum, biolipid repair cream. This has been working great for me so far and while our skin is different in many ways, "mom" and I have some of the same sensitivities, so this product may be a safe bet. I was thinking of ordering her the trial kit, it's around $21 which is more than reasonable. http://www.cellularskinrx.com/products_aha.html (scroll down the link page to see the travel kit)

Any other suggestions welcome please!!!! I think a Vit C Serum would be good as she is a smoker- right? If she has a bad reaction to something I am in trouble LOL. Not really, but looking for something that has a good reputation with mature skin.

well thankyou rosebud! I agree LOL, think I'll go ahead and order it. Had her try something for her eyes the other day- made 'em worse- zia product. It was hydrating and made her puffies worse and stung. So feeling a bit unsure here and thought I'd post and get second opinions. She wants to try Burts bees serum like I am using...keeping fingers crossed.
