I am 68 going on 69 but look very young. My eyes are always puffy underneath and my neck is starting to loosen up a bit. I am very self -conscious and would like some products that can help me to look even younger. I am a widow and still date.and want to look my best. Actually I would like a complete makeover. I have a lot of makeup but do get confused with so many product and to pick the correct one for me.. I do not use foundation because it makes you look older and shows up the imperfections more. I have very few lines and my skin is medium with a little oil in the T. I could use some suggestions?

on 5 in 1 Eye Cream
I think you should try the 5 in 1 eye cream from First Aid Beauty. I used it for several months and loved it- it moisturizes so well but feels very light and definitely gets rid of any puffiness. I just had to stop using it during the winter because it contains retinyl palmitate- which is a form of retinol/retin-A so made my skin too dry during the winter time.
My mom also uses the same cream (She's 6 years older than you and, unlike you, has lots and lots of wrinkles under her eyes because she was obsessed with tanning back in the day and used to bake herself in the sun- she regrets that now) and has had great results in terms of both minimizing her wrinkles and decreasing under eye puffiness that was made worse by her allergy/sinus problems. She does not have to stop using it during the winter like I do. Just goes to show that everyone's skin is different so what works for one person may or may not work out for someone else. So I think you should definitely try it for a month or so- as eye creams go it's less pricey than most of the others- and if it doesn't work out try maybe Clinique's All About Eyes (another great product without the retinyl). I used to use that when I was in college to get rid of the bags under my eyes from staying up all night studying and it worked amazingly well! Hope this helps and take care!
Your best bet would be to contact your nearest store and make an appointment to come in for a makeover. They'll help you select skincare products and makeup.
