Recommend please...

I looked really closely at my face in the washroom mirror this morning, and I saw a few fine lines under my eyes. Then, I looked again... and again... and again... and realized that I suddenly looked 60 (although inside still felt like 18, okay).
A few months ago, when I went for a make-up session in Bangsar, the make-up artist commented that my eyes and the area surrounding them were so dry and looked like had started to show some signs of ageing (sagging and thin lines). I heard her, and accepted the advice. However, I haven't found the eye cream or moisturiser that I should try experimenting. I have been checking out a few products but none actually fit my criteria. The product of my choice would be:

1. not tested on animal
2. doesn't contain animal by product
3. affordable (read: quite cheap because my road tax mati bulan ni, ok!)
4. nice smell
5. not greasy
6. easily absorbed by my skin
7. doesn't contain lead or any other poisonous chemical
8. branded stuff (otherwise, how to start this topic during those gossip sessions, right?)

So, if you know of any eye gel/cream/moisturiser that work magic and fit my criteria above, I'd be glad to hear your suggestions. Locallly made products are welcomed too. Yeah, I support the local entrepreneurs whenever possible!

alamak... cik pijah... i baru nak suruh kak yang and you try Clinique's All About Eyes. It worked wonders on me. puffy, lebam, lines...

urmm.. the best way to lose panda eyes, is to get plenty of sleep. unless it's genetics laa.

At the moment, I'm using Oil of Olay Eye Gel..so far so good la, however kena rajin pakai then you'll see the difference. Macam I nih, dah sebulan tak habis-habis. Padahal botol gel tu kecik je. hehe... (sungguh tak sesuai nak recommend kat org kan!!!)

Cik Pijah,
ok... Clinique tak jalan, eh? Mahal plak tu kan?

Jade,
tido banyak-banyak, nanti muka sembap la pulak. How to get enough sleep, eh.. anak2 I pukul 12.30 baru nak tido. 6.30 I dah kena bangun.

Eyna,
hmmm.... mungkin boleh consider gak Oil Of Olay ni ni. I pernah guna the facial clenser, OK jugak.

hmmm
I am never rajin to put "eye cream".
The 3-step penjagaan muka tu jer pun dah macam such a big chore, gitu.

So, I usually tenyeh extra night mosturizer on my eyes area.

hi Dnas... I've been using Artistry skin care range for a few years now, and it worked wonders :)My skin has improved so much... I love their eye cream coz it's easily absorbed and not greasy....

DNAS said...

Lanie,
that's what I'm doing now, but seems like it's causing some damage. My eyes area are extra sensitive, I guess.

Naddy,
I've heard of Artistry a long-long time ago. Never had the chance/money to experiment it. How to get the skin/eye care range?

Dee, I ni pengguna setia Body Shop. The eye cream dia ok jugak, ada vitamin c lagi. Mahal, dalam RM 50 sebotol.. tapi pakai setitik je sehari.. so far dah setahun belum sampai 1/3 pun I guna... Jimat le jugak, kalau kita divide 1 botol = 3 tahun punya use...

Dee, what I mean by mahal tadi, is mahal for me la... for you ok kot! eheh.. coz I ni rela guna duit untuk makan2 dari beli make-up! Pasal tu nak masuk slimming program tak jadik-2 tu!

naddy said...

Dee, can get from me... I'm one of the distributor... It's not that expensive compared to other over the counter brands... And also its quality, if anytg at all we offer satisfaction guarantee or ur money bck :) Even my husband use Artistry before this, and has helped his skin juga... Dulu dia byk jerawat.... now sbb they came up with men's range, he uses that one aje skang...
