I've heard that you can use hemorrhoid cream to reduce the bags underneath your eyes. Mine are really bad. Do you know if this really works?  Thanks!

    I've never tried it, but Diasy Fuentes swears by Preparation H! And being that she's a model...I'm thinking of trying it myself. A few of my friends have used it as well, and while I don't notice a drastic difference, they certainly don't have any bags under their eyes and it costs a fraction of the price of themore expensive eye creams!

    I believe the main problem with this - because it will work - is that it is very drying.  Perhaps not a good thing for everyday use.

    I use this, and it works.  It works because it shrinks the tissue.

    Surprisingly, it does help.  But I wouldn't recommend it for every day.  It can be drying.  When I use it, I always put a moisturing eye cream underneath.  Then I use the hemorrhoid cream on top, let it set, and then wipe off any excess because it can be a bit shiny.  Good luck!

    I used it every night when my husband was dying and I cried all day but I didn't want puffy eyes in the am.

    It works!

    Prep H has been reformulated. One of the ingredients that supposedly reduced puffiness 
    was "live yeast cell," but this is no longer part of the recipe."  I know some swear that it works, I tried it a few times and it never made a difference. The products that contain caffiene are more effective than Prep H for under eye bags.

    I've been using Tucks pads for years.  It reduces under eye and eye lid swelling in a second or two.  Didn't like the feel of Preparation H, heard that Tucks works well, and it does.

    I also heard that they removed an ingredient from the original product. I will try and see what happens. I to think it can be drying to the skin.

    I tried Preparpation H once under my foundation, as soon as I put my foundation on it all flaked off! What a mess! Tucks pads might work, or witch hazel.

    I used this back in the 80s and did think that it reduced the puffiness under my eyes but the original formula was changed and I think the new stuff doesn't work.

    It is an old Hollywood make-up artist trick. But newer eye products may be more effective as they are formulated specifically for this.

    I have it on good authority that the only way it works is if you get it from Canada! Apparently the US version doesn't have the right ingredient.

    I'm not sure about that cream, I've never even heard about it. Something thats worth trying and is easily available is Lancome's Light pearl. You instantly see a hudge difference in reduction of puffiness under the eyes. Plus if your not happy with it they will take it back :)

    You can find suggestions in order to treat eye skin difficulties. First is to understand which kind of skin you have. Upon realizing that, consult a dermatologist on which ingredients are suitable for your skin layer. After doing this, evaluate the ingredients in it and read as all the eye cream reviews available on internet.

    There are plenty of ingredients the organic eye cream has. The best thing regarding these types of elements is they are non-synthetic and so are clinically proved to be risk-free.

    The first thing should be to carry out a few research of your own making use of the power of the internet. Check out some of the top eye creams and see what active ingredients that they're implementing. Compare the actual ingredients in between eye creams to see which ones rely on them, and how much they use of each. Take a look at product reviews and ingredient reviews to make sure that they're both safe and effective.

    Active Ingredient In Tucks Medicated Cooling Pads Witch hazel 50% ............................Astringent (DRYING) Ingredients List: water, glycerin, alcohol, propylene gylcol, sodium citrate, diazolidinyl urea, citric acid, methylparaben, propylparaben I'll just go through all the bad ingredients just to use on any part of your skin - glycerin, alcohol, diazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben parabens on your skin = nasty nasty nasty...They are used to prevent the growth of microbes in cosmetic products and can be absorbed through the skin, blood and digestive system. They have been found in biopsies from breast tumors at concentrations similar to those found in consumer products. Parabens are found in nearly all urine samples from U.S. adults of a variety of ethnic, socioeconomic and geographic backgrounds. Please make sure you know what you're putting on your skin..ESPECIALLY in the delicate eye area!!!!!
