Recommend an eye cream? Cant use baby oil! Help!

The other night I ran out of eye makeup remover (I usually use a really gentle one from Lancome), so I used baby oil. I know a lot of people who use it as a makeup remover, and if it’s gentle enough for babies I figured it would be okay. I’ve been using it for years as an on-occasion, as-needed body moisturizer, so I thought the moisturizing aspect would help as the skin around my eyes has been really dry lately, even though I try to keep the BP away from it. Turns out I can’t use baby oil on my eyes! I had a really bad reaction to it. I woke up the next morning with really puffy, swollen eyes, and when the swelling went down I had what looked like two black eyes! The dark circles under my eyes were purple, and as the purple faded in the last few days the skin around my eyes is really dry and itchy and wrinkly! I’m not sure what to put on it. I haven’t been putting anything on it, as I’m waiting for the irritation to go away.

So, after that long-winded intro, I guess my question is: can anyone recommend an eye cream? I know some people use jojoba oil, or vitamin E, or lanolin, but I’m afraid to use another oil. Can anyone recommend something con-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and doesn’t have anything harsh? I don’t want to use any strong chemicals, no wrinkle reducers, anything like that. I just want an eye moisturizer for when the skin is dry.
