Do you use an eye cream daily?

It has been said by many a wordsmith, that your eyes are the windows to your soul.  As lovely as that sentiment is, I'm guessing that these poets didn't look at our eyes after a heavy night or a tiring week.  They certainly wouldn't be seeing windows; more bags big enough to carry our groceries in.

If there's any part of your face that'll give the game away it's your eyes.  Whether you're tired, stressed, ill, dehydrated, hungover or just not tip-tip your eye area will show it.  Why?  We're glad you asked.

The skin around your eyes is fragile, more so than anywhere else on your face.  The thin skin is really prone to dryness.  Add to that the constant moving of your eyes, squinting and well, we hate to say it, smiling and your eyes also become the area of your face to age first, and more rapidly.  As if that's not enough - BAGS.  Sigh.

Determining what causes bags is dependent on your age - bags in your 20s are different from bags in your 50s.   Bags in young people can be caused by too much salt, lack of sleep, lack of exercise and water retention. It's obvious how to 'cure' these types of bags - sleep, exercise, eat well and drink lots of water.  Bags later in life are caused by aging.  As we age collagen levels decline and our skin loses it's elasticity and starts to sag.  There's only so much we can fight the aging process, but luckily there are products to help.  And a dedicated eye cream is a great place to start - and it's never too early to start using one.

We're putting Goodness twice-a-day eye cream to the test.   This soft, delicate and fragrance-free product is here to help make your eyes look and feel ah-mazing.  It has witch hazel extract (which is incredible for dark circles!), chia seed, coconut and avocado oil and is so light you'll be able to wear it under make-up without feeling overloaded with product!  

As the name suggests you use this product twice a day.  Use your little finger (it's the most gentle) and dab a dot around the eye area and up to the brow bone.

So, now's the time for you to get talking to us about all things eyes and eye cream.  Do you find your eye area gives away how you're feeling?  Do you use an eye cream?  Do you notice the difference if you don't?

i've been using the Olay eye cream coz i read it was voted one of the best products for value (and it's the only one i could get in NZ as the other good ones are USA only). it seems ok. i use an eye cream every so often, and especially when i do a mud mask. i'll be 26 this year...gotta start treating those wrinkles and crows feet ;-D

Eye probably should. Big three oh this year

Youd think id have learned by now under eye bags look good on noone but I honestly wouldn't know where to start

I love my eye cream, I use Moreish its great :)

Having a new baby and minimal sleep means huge eye bags and puffy eyes! Thinking I most definitely need to start using something

Oh I need a good eye cream! Stressful job and two babies, this Mumma looks like the Walking Dead all day!

My eyes already have a few creases here and there! Would love to try this out!! :)

I have been using eye cream twice a day since I was 15 years old. If only one skin care product I can choose, that will be ---- Eye Cream !!! O really want to try " Goodness Twice-A-Day eye cream" !!! How I can get this great opportunity!!!

I've never used an eye cream in my regular regime but have been told several times I should. Have never found one that suits my skin so would love to try this and deplete those bags from under my eyes once and for all

I don't use an eye cream, but I'd love to try one!

this looks so good! I've never thought about eye cream to much, but this made me really think about it, i have quite bad bags under my eyes, so would love to try this!!

I'm obsessed with eye creams and always on the hunt for really good ones. I've lately been using the midnight recovery eye cream by khiels, I love it but it is very dear which makes my pocket unhappy. Would love to try something more affordable :)

I've always had a problem with circles under my eyes. Now that I'm in my 30's, there's a whole bunch more issues with my eyes... crows feet etc. I'd love to give this a go. My eye area is where I'm noticing aging the most!

Would love to try this product. Haven't ever found one that does all that us room used.

I am interested to try Goodness products as it is not a brand I have used and I am always on the look out for products that deliver on their assertions. I have heard good things from my friends so would be very interested
