What Can You Recommend for My Eyes?

Allergies are kicking my butt. I didn't know I was allergic to anything until this last transition from summer to fall. My eye lids are terribly itchy and swollen so much that when I try to apply eye liner it's a fight to get it on and make it stay on. The skin is dry and chapped as if it needs some sort of hydrating cream. Can anyone recommend a good eye cream I can use on my eye lids? I've had to take Claritin every day for the last couple of weeks. Without it I'm a sneezing, itching, runny-nosed mess. I wonder what I'm allergic to?

I'm in full fall mode. I've gone through the closets and pulled out all the tank tops, shorts and summer outfits. I'm putting them in trashing bags and hiding them in the basement so the girls can't find them. I'm pulling out the winter stuff and washing all the pajamas, long sleeved shirts, and pants. I have to hide the summer stash because if I don't the girls will wear everything summer during the fall and winter season. It's not happening! All those favorite outfits of the smallest child are being donated or hidden. If she had her way she would wear the same thing every day.

I'm still in workout mode I'm just tired of jotting down my physical fitness every week. I'm still recording it on my planner but would prefer to update you guys when I've actually put a dent in the scale or graduated to a smaller size. It's totally a mental game for me. I'm to the point where I'm about ready to just make sure I'm exercising every day until I've dropped a pound or two on the scale. Once I do that then I can rest for a day but after that get right back to it until more dents are slammed into that scale. If my BFF can get down to a size 8 loose and fit into a 6 I should be able to do the same thing..right?


  1. Angela,

    Cetaphil is THE BEST moisturizer, hands down. It was originally formulated for people with eczema, so it's super hydrating yet very, very sensitive. Nothing works as good as that stuff.


  2. Can you use Cetaphil moisturizer around your eyes and on your eye lids? Thank You Sandy!

  3. I do. Just apply a thin layer and, as with any moisturizer, try not to get it in your eyes. Let me know how it goes!! Sandy

  4. I will certainly give it a try. I'm pretty sure that is what my problem is. I just need some moisture on those eye lids.

    I also think I have issue with dial soap. I'm not going to use dial soap any more.


Thanks for the comment
