Hi ladies...fairly new to EDS -- LOVING all the information. Wow!

I am 38 and am starting to see some eye area crepiness (upper and lower). Working on my facial skin (melasma -- HATE IT! and sun spots/hyperpigmentation) with TCA 12.5% (layering it 2x), salicylic (10% in layers also - that can go deep and gets rid of surface sun spots!), Meladerm (just started that 2 days ago), Retin-A and vitamin C (23%) but need some advice on the eye area and how to get rid of that crepiness that can easily give away age. Shock

Advice on doing a glycolic (lower % of course) around the eye area? Can anyone share their sucessful method with me? Razz

Thanks so much!!

I am surprised that your skin is able to cope with all those actives.
As far as your eyes are concerned, I would be fairly careful what you use around them as most products can easily creep very close to your eyes and cause problems. The Valmont Eye Mask will not only hydrate the eye area but really firm it as well and it is very safe to use. After you use it, you should really see softening in any lines such that they will be hardly noticeable.

Hi. Thanks so much for the information on the Valmont eye mask. I will certainly check that out! You have had good results from that, huh? That is great.

Just to clarify on all the other actives -- i only peel each month and rotate the TCA and the Salicylic. I use retin-a up to a week prior to prep my skin. Just started the Meladerm and vit C combo for the melasma.

Bushy, how much usage can you get from a bottle. Is this everyday, or weekly use? Thanks.

On many occasions, a sample of this eye mask has been available as a free gift with the purchase of Valmont products. Each mask has 2 vials, one is used to wet the eye pads which are placed under and to the side of the eye and left on for 20 minutes. Then the pads are removed and the second vial is used around the eye area. The full product contains 5 masks. It is used as a treatment so usage depends on the condition of your eye area. I found the effects lasted a week or two.
