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 really like Olay regenerist for my under eye moisturizer. It is not specifically for under the eyes but it works for me. The one I'm using doesn't have SPF though.

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! :)

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 :)

So the Clarins eye cream arrived yesterday :) I tried it and I really like it. It was a little brightening when I put it on, perhaps because it leaves a bit of a white cast but since my skin is nearly white it acted kind of like concealer. I didn't need to put concealer on over the top but I did so to test if it would settle into fine lines and it didn't! Some of the other reviewers said it was drying and that they needed an eye moisturiser underneath but I didn't find that today. My skin is oily but since I've been using acne products I get dehydration lines around my eyes (even though I avoid the eye area...) and sometimes concealer settles into them but it stayed in place well today. I don't know if long term my eyes might get dry with it, but I use a moisturising eye cream at night so I'm hoping that'll be enough... Hope that helps!

Wow! Thanks for the detailed response. I didn't think you would actually get back. I may go out and buy it today! Hope I don't get the drying effect, my skin is oily also so I don't think it will:-) thank you again!
