I am looking for a good under eye cream, one that will help reduce crows feet and puffiness, as well as a good evening facial moisturizer. Any suggestions? I have been using Serious Skin Care for years now, and I am simply wanting to try something new. Anything you have used and absolutely love?

Arbonne is the best I have ever tried; and you will see and feel results. The NutriminC RE9 skin care has 9 anti-aging elements, all botanically based. You order it from a consultant, it's not sold in stores. Contact S. Britton to order, or for a free sample!

Hi Kim,

I am a HUGE fan of Mary Kay's firming eye cream and their Miracle Set for skincare. I am 35 years old and I don't have any wrinkles on my face or around my eyes at all. My mom is 72 and has been using Mk since I was around 9 years old and she looks absolutely amazing. People think she is in her 50's all the time. She has her 55 year class reunion this year and every time she goes to those she is by far the youngest looking person there. If you are interested please contact me. I have been a consultant for 6.5 years and I am a firm believer!

Hi Kim-

I see that you have had some really good recommendations. While I have been a devote Arbonne user for years and the products are really wonderful. Karen M. already responded to you and she is a great rep for the company. I have been a wholesale buyer for 7 years and my skin has never been better. It is all enzymatic based with many essential plant based products.

As far as over the counter products-read the ingredient list-the crude oil derivatives and gasoline by-products do not belong on your skin.

Ok, I'm not a sales rep for any product! I have tried a few of the products listed here and they are okay (but not for me). I have found that I love Aveda products. They work with my skin type and I never feel over dry or like an oil slick!

I go to to Ben E Salon on Northwest Hwy in Barrington and go to Cristina. (I go for facials and waxing) She will tell you what products you need and which ones you don't.....she has never tried to force products or get me to buy more then I can spend.

I have been to other Aveda spas where they do try to get you to buy tons of stuff but any time I have double checked with Cristina she has almost always told me I don't need the extra products or it was not right for my skin.

I use the gel face wash, toner,eye cream, spf 15 day most, and a night cream.....that is it! I do have a gel mask I do once a month in the summer.

I'm 37(almost 38) and most people think that I'm around 31 or so.....

Kim,
I use a great cream from a company called Kara Vita. You can visit there website Karavita.com If you choose to purchase any of the items my consultant that I use her name is Gini Kempen. I have also used Arbonne and have switched over to Kara Vita, I see way better results, a lot quicker, and it is not as costly. Arbonne products use to make me break out within a day of using them.

Hi Kim,

I'm not sure if you have ever tried any of Arbonne's products but they are absolutley amazing! All of their products are botanically based so they are pure, safe and benefical. Many people that have tried a variety of other skin care products really love Arbonne. I would recommend using their anit-aging RE9 line. The eye cream is part of this line and is extremley popular and works great. If you would like to try it let me know and I could send you a free sample of the RE9 products. I am an independent consultant for Arbonne and I truly believe in their products, I wouldn't be selling them if I didn't.

For daily moisturizing I use Aveda's Hydrating Lotion. I used to have extra dry, flaky, peeling skin until I started using that. And you don't need much - I little goes a long way.

But for deep moisturizing or very dry skin, Kiehl's Panthenol Protein Face Cream is excellent! I even use it on everything from sunburn, to small patches of excema, to shaving rash! It is very rich, so use sparingly on your face, but it makes the skin feel moisturized and soft.

As for eye cream, the best I've ever used is Kiehl's Cryste Marine Firming Eye Treatment. Even my husband uses it, and he swears it keeps the lines away and the skin supple.

Good luck!

Hi Kim,
I have used all the best (and pricey!) brands of skin care. Arbonne is by far my favorite. It works, and you use very little of each lotion, so it lasts a long time. It's available for sale at Multiform Fitness in Hoffman Estates. If you stop by and ask for P., I will give you a free 3-day supply to try for yourself. We're on Rt 62 in the Huntington Shopping Plaza, 1 mile east of Barrington Rd.
If you want to go organic, I would recommend Starflower. You can Google to get to the site. It's more expensive, but out of all the 100% organics I've tried, I think it's the best.

Kim:
I can't say enough about the brand that I use and have recommended to so many. The Arbonne eye cream is incredible. As a matter of fact, they have a whole line devoted to anti-aging of the entire body! Truly amazing products and all are pure, safe and botanically based. Many people actually see results in a week or less!

Arbonne is a Swiss based company that is made here is the US. The European standards for personal care products are much higher than here and that is why the products are exceptional and second to none.

If you would like to try a sample of the whole facial regimen, let me know. Many people on this site have switched and love that you get great results, without chemicals and are fragrance free products that truly work and come with a money back guarantee. Let me know if you'd be interested in a sample. I know you will love what this line can do for you. It has helped me and even women older so it doesn't matter what age you start the product, just try it!

I'd love to share it with you and see what you think. Let me know, ok? Take care and here's to your health!

Hi Kim,
These are a few of my favorite Mary Kay products, and yes I'm an Independent Beauty Consultant, but they work great and I love them and you will too.
the first one: TimeWise® Targeted-Action™ Eye Revitalizer is specifically formulated to address multiple causes of dark circles and undereye puffiness.
The 2nd: TimeWise® Firming Eye Cream, Imagine a luxuriously rich eye cream so advanced it firms, brightens, provides intense moisturization, plus minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. Its one product with multiple benefits, for beautiful eyes
And for an extra special treat:
Indulge Soothing Eye Gel. It's a cool gel to reduce the appearances of puffiness, leaving the eye area firm, toned and moisturized. I keep mine in the fridge sometimes for an extra cooling effect.
Hope these help! You can visit my site for more info.

I have been using Shaklee's Enfuselle line for 7 years, and no one guesses my age. I used to use a well known department store product which was a lot more expensive and didn't work as well. Enfuselle is Nutrition Therapy for the skin. It was clinically tested at the Scripp's Institute and has 8 patents on its formulation. All products have a 100% guarantee, so you can try without risk. If you are interested in hearing more about it, I would be happy to provide more information.

Hi Kim,

I'm a big fan of the Mary Kay Timewise collection and particularly of the Timewise Firming Eye Cream. The Firming Eye Cream lasts me over 4 months...a little goes a long way but it's great for anti-aging, puffiness and circles. I use it twice a day and it absorbs quickly so you can use it under make-up. There are a few other eye specific products as well I can tell you about. All the Mary Kay products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed. I am a Mary Kay consultant and give 10% off to mamasource members for their 1st order in addition to free shipping.
