Any good afordable eye creams you like?

I am 28 and just starting noticing my crow's feet starting to get deeper. I've been using Aveda Tourmaline eye cream/gel for a while and I guess I'm looking for something a bit more "active." I've been looking around and found Olay's Regenerist, anyone have luck with that stuff or anything else? I'm hoping to not spend more than $30.00 but if there is something you LOVE please share!Thank you in advance

I use ROC brand eye cream. It's hydrating and sinks into your skin. I feel like it helps out with smoothing out the lines. It costs about $20.00 for .5ml and it lasts me a while.
I've never tried the Olay Regenerist but I too am curious.

Two that I love
1. low budget - around $20.00 is ROC anti-wrinkle cream for eyes. light cream
2. Estee Lauder intensive eye around $60.00 (worth it). Light gel like formula

Careful you don't choose one too heavy you're still young. Look for one that has retinol in it.

Just sunscreen, plenty of water, no smoking and proper sunglasses. Genetics also plays a huge roll in skin overall.

Over the counter cremes say "reduces the appearance of". Not simply "reduces". You can plump them up with product but they will always be there. When the creme wears off, you will still see the wrinkles.

Try to avoid getting them in the first place and you will be much better off.

The sun plays a huge roll in this. Avoid it whenever possible.

i use arbonne RE9 products... they aren't exactly affordable, but they work great and the bottles last a long time, so considering how long they last they arent *that* expensive.

I second I was just about to suggest it when I saw someone else did. It is a very informative website. Don't be swayed by the fact that she has her own product line. She gives you all the information you need to make the right choice even if it is not her own product.

OP here

Wow, thanks a ton for your suggestions. I'm checking out and arbonne RE9 products online to see what the deal is.
Head's up. I'm not naive when it comes to skincare products, I understand most of it is advertising and marketed to give you a miracle, that's why I'm asking you gals for you're honest opinions. I do wear SPF 45+ everday and have since I was 16 and I do wear large sunglasses, have never smoked and drink PLenty of water everyday. I understand that preventing them is the key and I have never been a "sun-worshiper" but sometimes I feel like I could use an extra "oomph" in the hydration dept. My mother always looked younger than her age so I guess that's a good thing but I would like to do something good for the skin around my just looks thirsty. After all, water, I agree is great but I need something topical to help "up the anty."

I like Olay products in general. But I have not done a LOT of shopping around. I also use a sunscreen moisturizer as well, and put it on my eyelids, too.

Tons of water, and I consume a good bit of flaxseed oil and also olive oil in my diet

I started using gel around my eyes this year (when I was 28, also!) I can't remember exactly what it's called, but it's a clear gel by Olay and it comes in a little pot (like a lipgloss sized pot). So far it's helped keep that area a lot less dry and I don't notice the little wrinkles as much. Now I need something dramatic for the deep forehead wrinkle in between my eyebrows...... :(

I use the ROC cream also and have been for years - fantastic stuff. But also wear sunglasses constantly and get plenty of sleep and water.

Olay regenerist is really good. I really like it. I've also heard many positive reviews on the news and online about it in terms of price vs. product performance.

I use their whole Regenerist line-- the night cream visibly shows changes almost overnight, but can be a little heavy when summer comes.

OP here great is So awesome to be able to read all of her reviews. I totally get why you guys love it so much. Have you ever used any of her products? They are so affordable it's almost silly not to try them...worth a shot right?

Hello there

Here is the only eye cream/serum I plan on wearing. It does not swell my eyes out and drift into them as I sleep. I always said I will never wear eye cream and that they were a complete waste of time. Once I discovered "Revitol Eye Cream", I was hooked.

I use just plain old organic aloe vera jelly. Put a dab on my finger, pat it around my eye, gently smooth it in. Bought a tube at the health food co-op for $6, but I think you can get some that's not organic at Walgreen's and/or CVS for around $2-$3.

This stuff is also great as a regular face and body moisturizer. I've been using it after every bath and shower since I was 17, and now at almost 55, I have absolutely no wrinkles anywhere. People always think I'm my baby sister's age (40).

funny you should mention that about inexpensive aloe vera. I read on another thread that someone washes their hair with baking soda mixed with water. Cleans really well and costs next to nothing.

Good House Keeping 2010 Oct issue had Good Housekeeping Anti aging products rewards in it. I just picked up the magazine today.

But for eye wrinkles prevention is the best medicine.. Wear good sunglasses. Wear sunscreen. I noticed even with their "winning" products that wrinkle deminishing was "moderate at best."

I'm the 2:39pm poster.

2:52pm, guess what? I'm also the one who commented about using a baking soda and water solution to wash my hair, and an apple cider vinegar and water solution as conditioner.

All of these things are super easy to get, in just about any grocery, discount store, pharmacy, and even dollar store. Plus, they all work great and have no ingredients that cause allergic reactions.

Loreal illumination is the BEST best best. I look 8 years younger after I put it on under and around my eyes. It cost about $15.
