I have dark circles AND puffiness.
What do you use (if anything?). I need advice before I end up looking like this:
Come on, don't pretend you don't use eye cream you twats.
it actually can have a negative effect, and even clog up tear ducts etc.
We do a really light one called enchanted eye cream, but any lightly moisturising one will help. Also chilled green tea bags, frozen cotton pads sprayed with toner and a touch of moisturiser or cucumber slices on the eyes for 10 minutes or so a day will help with puffiness.
Avoid rubbing your eyes too hard as well, which aggravates and stretches the skin and speeds up wrinkles.

if you're not too fussed, you can use pure vitamin e oil (make sure theres nothing else added, you can get it in health food shops, pharmacies and the body shop have a line of vitamin e eyecreams)
i get severely dry at the outer corners of my eyes, and bought a couple of these when it was half price online. bare bones but really moisturising. doesn't help at all with discolouration or anything else. http://www.laroche-posay.com/products-treatments/Hydraphase/Hydraphase-INTENSE-Eyes-p5406.aspx
I'm going to buy all of the lush things on Sat. (the one near work is closed :( )
my love/hate relationship with lush is so turbulent. i first became a casual lush customer nine years ago and now i only have about three products or so that i repurchase. i'm looking forward to let the good times roll coming back after i was WRONGLY INFORMED by staff (apparently there was a miscommunication and something the lush times) that it would be permanent (we're cool now, though).
last time i checked there were only 19 100% natural products that are permanent- 21 if we're including incence - three body butter bars, a lip scrub, two lip balms, a balm cleanser, two fresh cleansers, a serum bar, two fresh cleansers, three fresh face masks, four henna bricks, a dry shampoo and a hand care product.
coming from an allergy sufferer here, who uses 50% all-natural products, the fact there isnt a soap or hair product (not including no drought, or the henna) without any form of sls in is upsetting, or the fact that there isn't a body fragrance or deoderant product without synthetics and parabens.
i am thinking about potentially purchasing a full size ultrabalm to use as a makeup remover, though!!!!!!
Sorry to hear that - there was a massive fuck up last year. I was told it was permanent too and then found out 2 weeks later that it wasn't. Not sure what went on there, but it's coming back, and it will be permanent this year.
The thing with the SLS that we use is, that it comes from coconut oil, so while it is a foaming agent - it is still naturally derived. Parabens are also in nature too - blueberries are chock full of them for instance, but I digress.
We are working on a 3 year plan to be 100% preservative free among other things so hopefully that target will be hit, and we'll have more new products out and suitable for you.
Ultrabalm is pretty good, vegan vaseline basically, can use it for anything and only three ingredients!
i was aware about the fuck up :D one person who initially told me it was permanent made a point of apologising to me when i went back to ask about it and offered to ask around to see if there was any stock left so i could freeze some. everyone is just SO NICE.
i still have nearly as much trouble with laureth as lauryl, i find i'm best off avoiding sulfates in general, which not something that i can always afford to do, unfortunately.
i'm not too fussy about using parabens unless it's something that is going to be staying on than a few minutes (i.e. moisturiser). although alcohol is something that disagrees with my skin.
i understand how difficult it already is for lush with regards to formulating and sourcing their ingredients, so to hear you're dedicated with regards to becoming preservative free is super promising!
i've had two separate samples of ultrabalm, and it lasts so long, oh my. definitely purchasing once i get around to finishing other balms i have lying around.
Check your PMs!
Dont be duped into spending top dollar on products
go to bed early.
I have no eye wrinkles.
You could just be blessed with young looking skin
big whoop, granny
Man, you are a real girl. Seriously
Not sure how to take that as anything other than a compliment, maaaaaaan!
tongue in cheek
Big fan of clarins. Their moisturiser (with toner) is really good.
