Advice!! Which eye creams have people found to work well with this?
Ok guys, I'm desperate here! I started using this regularly (almost daily) about a week and a half ago & like so many of you, I've fallen madly in love with this silver tube of...cement...! =( lol But over the past couple days, I've noticed that the skin under my eyes is much drier than it normally is - so much so that my concealer (Benefit Erase Paste) cakes within an hour! Now, I'm still trying to master the application technique, so that could be it. I've also been experimenting with two new eye creams during the past 3 weeks - Philosophy's Eye Believe & Rare Minerals Active Triple Treatment Eye Cream - so that might be causing the dryness too (both contain Retinyl Palmitate & my previous one Dermatologica's Intensive Eye Repair did not). But I read that some of you experienced excessive dryness when applying this under the eyes as well and (sniff) had to stop using it.
Sorry for the novel but I really need some solid advice... I'm on a quest to find a super moisturizing eye cream so that I can combat this dryness and continue to use...! Price isn't really an issue however La Prairie, that is an issue!

on Photo Finish Targeted Pore & Line Primer
I use life extension products for my eyes and face. People think im 10 years younger than I am. Been using them for many years.
Even though $ is not an issue, you can use Vaseline and save yourself alot....No better moisturizer than plain old Vaseline. Believe it or not. Oh, and if you want to just give it a try.....you can gamble with a few pennies, not major bucks!
Try the SK-II Signs Eye Cream. I was using it when I started using this primer and I haven't notice any "climate" changes in the skin around my eye area .

There is NO moisture to this primer, so to start: that combined with the fact you are now using eye creams that cause cellular turn over, you are seeing the results.
You can either switch back to what you were using for an eye cream, OR you can try Dermadoctor's wrinkle revenge eye balm. It DOES contain cellullar activating properties, BUT it is the BEST hydration I have EVER had for my skin (they make a face one too.) Both are sold on Sephora's website.
Lastly - you might consider trying a more hydrating less dry concealer.
I hope this helps!

Kristin, I would go for the Smashbox Dermaxy Primer around the eyes, and just the Pore and Line Minimizer at the corner creases instead. The Dermaxyl Primer makes your eye area feel like its covered in silk. I also use the Smashbox concealer in the lightest pinkish/white tone around the eye area, and sometimes over the wrinkles above the mouth. It brightens beautifully and disappears. I have olive skin and it is not too light on me. I put it on over the primer, and then blend the makeup over it. I could not believe what a new lease on life it gave my face. Hope this helps you. I live in the dry desert where the sun has taken a toll on my skin. I'm over 50 and my skin looks like I'm under 40.(other people's comments, not just my ego!) ;)

I love Origins products-especially the Ginzing eye cream! I have always had dark circles under my eyes and now that I am getting older I see fine lines under my eyes. Ginzing eliminates both! Only eye cream I have ever used that does what it promises!! Good luck

I have exactly the same problem. I did not find this product to correct that issue. I am currently using TNS Illuminating eye cream and then a regular smash box primer, sometimes I use the Nars primer SPF 20 instead. What seemed to work the best, is finding a very creamy concealer that is somewhat hydrating. I am currently using Bobby Brown corrector then Laura Marcier #4 concealer. I apply them with the Bare Escentuals max coverage brush, not the tiny tip concealer brush that everyone recommends to apply concealer, and blend, blend, blend...I do not use foundation. So I use mineral veil to set my eyes and then use transulcent powder over the rest of my face. It has changed my life.
