There’s nothing that cheers me up on a Monday more than a reader question. If you would like your burning beauty questions answered then e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi! I was wondering if you could advise which is the best eye cream to reduce puffiness for sensitive skin? I’ve been recommended Benefits eye cream, which has great packaging, and Elizabeth Arden’s After Eight which I know is a classic. Any advice you can give is greatly appreciated.
Elizabeth, I know exactly what you need – Organic Eye Gel from Green People. It’s free from Parabens, Lanolin, ethyl alcohol, artificial perfumes, petrochemicals, phthalates and colourants (crikey – long list!!) which makes this gel fantastic for sensitive skin, but the light formula also means that it calms puffiness right down. It is made for use during the day so you can wear it under make-up and it sinks in really easily and it’s a real bargain too at just £6.84.
At this price, you can also splash out on their Eye Cream for night use which will deliver a hit of hydration whilst you sleep. Remember just to use a teensy bit or it will make puffy eyes worse, not better.
