I agree with everything you have said Nonie for sure Wink water-based moisturizers just seem to irritate my skin and exacerbates de-hydration! Shock

And I find people with the best skin use nothing or not much at all -- if you ask them what they use, they usually say something like Dove Soap to wash their face and little more than sorbolene to moisturize or sunscreen, and that's if they can be bothered! lol Laughing

I've definitely come to accept that less is probably far more effective than more too Wink

I find water-based moisturizers to be drying no matter where they are used. I don't even use water-based moisturizers to moisturize the skin on my body; I use coconut oil as my body moisturizer.

As far as the under eye area, nothing works better than Vaseline IMO. Doesn't make my eyes puffy, doesn't make them look lined. A few friends have tried this and reported improvement too.

Some people get milia from using oily products. Eva Fraser who introduced me to using Vaseline under the eyes, mainly before doing eye exercises and at bedtime (or was that someone else), also believes in using nothing at all. I've done both, and my eyes have done OK with that.

I think sometimes we overdo things. There are very few pores under the eyes which IMO seems to say God felt we didn't need a lot of sebum (ie moisturizing) there, so I think the fact that people are so fond of smothering their eyes with creams etc is why that area seems to pose the most problems. It's like you create this dependency that was never necessary in the first place: kinda like the junkie who can't do with coke when had he not messed with it in the first place, he'd find he never needed it at all. And if that isn't the cleverest trick the cosmetic companies ever played: give them something that makes them need more of it and you will be sure to stay in business.

Everyone I know who doesn't fuss over the under eye area has better looking eyes than people who feel they need umpteen things. Less is more, IMO.
