It's bad enough when you feel like your face is thirsting for moisture but when your eyes are thirsty, well you've got a BIG problem! Let me paint a picture for you: dry, flaky, crepe-y, sensitive, contact wearing eyes with little bags underneath that accentuate the dark circles under each one. Sounds pretty, right? They're not the worst I've ever seen but they're the worst mine have ever been. Off to one of my favorite websites again (makeupalley.com) to find a "miracle cure". Being a "Neutrogena girl" I checked their reviews first. I'd been wanting to try the Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream so I made my choice. I have to admit that I like it. The problem is, it wasn't doing enough for my dehydration. Off to research eye products again. This time I decided to go with another favorite line of mine, Boots. I settled on the Boots Expert Sensitive Hydrating Eye Cream. Very nice product, but for nighttime only. I found that my makeup settled into the fine lines when I used this during the day. After some trial and error testing I found a happy medium, Rapid Repair and Yes to Blueberries for day and Rapid Repair and Boots for night. Ahhh, relief. My eyes no longer look like the eyes of a dehydrated 85 year old.
