I'm looking for an inexpensive eye cream. I'm 32 yrs old and noticing my eyes are looking tired and oldish. Does any one have any tips or a good eye cream they can recommend for me? Thank you.

I great tip that I use is combining multiple uses for one product. I use 100% shea butter for lots of things. It's a great moisturizer for hands and feet, great for rough spots like knees and elbows, and is awesome for eye cream. You can also use it for a hair balm. A little goes a long way, and if you use 1 product for tons of uses, you can afford to get a pricy product like L'occitane 100% SHEA.

Clinique has an amazing one. But in addition; Cetaphil, which can be bought at WalMart, is awesome! I use the face wash and moisturizer alone and have noticed wrinkles in my face and around my eyes and on my neck have all faded and I've had a million compliments on my skin.


It's not too bad expensive, about 10.00 each. The product was recommended by my dermatologist.

Hi, since I can't afford any expensive stuff anymore, I went over to using almond, peach or apricot oil that I get at an Indian store. This has been and still is a perfect solution for me and I am almost twice as old :) Just moisten a cotton pad with water, squeeze the water out and then moisten the pad with some of the almond oil. I use it for my entire face and must say I am pleased with the results. Repeat a couple of times with new pads :) to make sure skin is entirely clean and moist as well.

I use extra virgin olive oil on my face and around my eyes at night. Everyone tells me I have a pretty completion and I'm 60 yrs old.

I have used Noxema to clean my face since I was about 12, and also Oil of Olay, (my mom started me early, and I am so glad now!) I am 53 and people say I don't look a day over 35. I hear that many make-up artists and dermatologists tell celebrities to use plain ol' Vaseline as long as they are not prone to zits, there is nothing better to hold in moisture, and also extra virgin olive oil. It is natural, it is good for you inside and out, and I know several elderly women who have used it for years, and their skin looks so young! For now, the Noxema /Oil of Olay ritual still works for me, but I may have to try the olive oil on my face and see how it goes.


If anyone has dry, wrinkly hands, put Vaseline on them right before bed and then slip on white gloves and go to sleep. I know it's hard to sleep with gloves on, but trust me, it's worth it every now and then for the awesome results! Olive Oil would probably work just as well. For deep-conditioning the hair, wash it, then apply mayonnaise all over, (not reduced fat or fat-free, and NOT Miracle Whip!), leave in for about 10 minutes, then rinse well with warm water, and shampoo again. If you dry your hair in front of a strong fan instead of using a blow dryer, it will be much more smooth, soft, silky, and shiny! I know you didn't ask about the hair or the hands, but just thought I'd share.

I agree the beauty magazine experts (and Consumer Reports) when they say that the Olay Regenerist line is the best product at any price.


I have used it for years, about 18 bucks at WalMart but now I get the store brand for about 12 I think. It last a long time and feels like silk.

I am sixty and have to really stand close to the mirror to see any wrinkles at all.
