Best eye cream?

I have tried a few different eye creams or serums for firming the upper eye area as well as minimizing fine lines around my eyes and crow's feet. From experience, what eye cream can you recommend to try that has good results and doesn't cost more than about $30-$35.00?

  • Loreal Eye Defense is good at firming the puffiness under the eyes and it's about $10.00 and you can find it at drugstores or grocery stores if they sell cosmetics.Clinique's All About Eyes is really good stuff too and it costs around $30.00, they make it in two forms, the original one it is a gel-based formula that moisturizes and firms, and then they have their newer one that's a thick cream-based intended for those with really dry skin. For me, these are the only things I found that work really well for the eyes, they are gentle and effective.

  • Don't get suckered in to buying expensive eye cream. You can get Olay or like txsgal said. A few tricks are also to use tea bags which contain caffine and will depuff the eye along with using a firming lotion for your face, wear sunglasses so you don't squint and always use sunscreen even in the winter

  • Thanks for the tips girls! I am really wanting to get something that helps to target 'crow's feet' and the droopiness of my upper eyelids without cosmetic surgery (as I am never going to go there!) so although no cream can 'take it away' I know there must be something out there that can help to 'plump up' the wrinkles throughout the day.
    I have tried Mary Kay's line eraser (didn't do anything), Avon's Anew Ultimate Contouring Eye System (geared to undereye puffiness and bags which aren't my issue), Anew Clinical eye lift and one by L'Oreal that I can't remember the name of. I always try it and if after using it all, I don't really see much of a change, I try something else.
