Ackkkk!! Help! Just looked very closely at my eyes in the mirror the other day for the first time in a long time and yikes!! – my crow’s feet have developed crow’s feet! How can this be? 🙂
Of course, I’m no spring chicken, and my 50-plus-year-old eyes can’t be expected to still look as fresh and dewy as a twentysomething’s, but still. I’ve not done the eye cream thing much at all over the years and now I’m starting to seriously regret it.
A good while back, a friend gave me a sample of a La Mer eye cream, but it must’ve been too rich or something, because after several nights, I began to develop a few tiny little bumps around my eyes. So I quit using it, or any others, to let my skin re-set, then kind of forgot about the whole thing and completely fell off the eye cream wagon.
But now I’d like to get back on and I’m not sure where to start. I’ve heard there are some good products out there (especially those that won’t break the bank), but most of all, I’m looking for a high level of effectiveness; something that would work well for someone coming late to the eye-care game.
So do any of you wonderful Posse readers have any eye product suggestions? Any tips and tricks to help conceal the lines I’ve already got? Or any recommendations for a concealer (for the dark circles) that won’t settle too much into the wrinkles and look even worse?
The only (tiny) silver lining to my dilemma is that since I’m nearsighted, my glasses tend to make my eyes look a bit smaller anyway, thereby also reducing the look of my lines. But that’s not that big of a comfort … sigh.
