clinique all about eyes causing puffiness?
i used clinique's all about eyes for a long time and liked it alot, it irritated my lower rims a little, but it didn't burn like most other eye creams. then all of a sudden it started making my under eyes puff up, like after almost a year of being fine. i had to stop using it and now i can't find anything else that doesn't burn my extremely sensitive eyes. why did this happen? should i try it again? maybe with an anti-puff roller? is there something simillar out there that might be just different enough to avoid the puffiness?
Hi, uhmmm. Even as weird as it sounds, people can develop allergies overnight to things that they've never been allergic to before in their entire lives. This may be the case with the Clinique All About Eyes, or it could be that something in the formulation has changed that's causing your irritation. If your eye irritation cleared up when you quit using the All About Eyes, then I'd not use it again because it could also have become contaminated with germs, which could also be the source of your eye irritation. (By the way, if your eyes are still irritated, you should go to see an eye doctor to make sure that you don't have an eye infection.) If you really love the All About Eyes product, you could always try purchasing a brand new container and see if the brand new product irritates your eyes. If it does, then you'll know for sure that it's the product itself and not a contaminate. However, if you're afraid to continue using it or if you do use it and it does cause irritation again, I'd suggest switching to an all natural anti-puffiness product and see how that works. Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Pen is an all-natural product that is a best-selling essential which helps address all three major eye care concerns: puffiness, wrinkles, and dark circles. Skin is revived by a blend of soothing nutrients while optical diffusers brighten the entire eye area. It's this travel-friendly and it's 100% vegetarian, cruelty free, and allergy tested. The natural solution does not contain petroleum or mineral oils and you can find it here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P23
Hope this helps and have a great day!
