Best Under-Eye Product To Use Under Makeup?

8 posts in this topic

Hey all! Just wondering what kind of moisturizer (after u wash ur face) you put under your eyes for during the day to protect them from pre mature aging and the suns rays. I dab a little of my cetaphil facial moisturizer with SPF 15 under my eye but I noticed it makes my makeup settle into those little creases under my eye and it burns also. (Not sure why?) I tried jojoba oil oil but that was way to oily for during the day use & it just sat on top of my skin under my eye. Just wondering what sort of moisturizer the ladies use under their makeup? Doesn't matter if its natural, or a product you like from the store to use under your eyes (for daytime use).

Thank you!

I've got a Eucerin eye cream which I like, it's moisturising enough that my makeup doesn't settle into dehydration lines (which only appeared once I started using bp grr!) It only has spf 6 though... it seems hard to find an eye cream with spf... Which probably means it doesn't really matter... And I probably only care because I'm just ridiculously obsessive! I ordered a Clarins one with spf 30 yesterday because I suddenly panicked that as I was wearing spf 50 on my face and 6 on my eyes that I would get panda eyes! I think it is more of a sunscreen than a moisturiser so I may need another cream underneath... based on what I've read on makeupalley, will test it out when it arrives... But I'd recommend the Eucerin one for day wear :)

Hey! It's funny you mention the clarins because I just found that online yesterday and thought it would be perfect because it has SPF and its specifically for under eye area and it got good reviews. Did you find it @ sephora? And it's called Sunscreen for eyes wrinkle control cream SPF 30? Tell me how it works out for you! smile.png

Nice coincidence! We don't have Sephora stores here in the UK. I tried to get it from a department store but they didn't have any in stock - guess not many sane people want an spf 30 eye cream in England with the terrible weather we have! The sales assistant asked if it was for when I went on holiday, I kinda nodded rather than admit how neurotic I was... So yeah she ordered it for me and I should get it in a few days and yes definitely I'll let you know what I think of it smile.png

Vegetable glycerine.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
