Help! I have major under eye wrinkles!

I know that my under eye wrinkles are due to wearing contacts for 26 (!!) years, and to all those years of sunning my face, both outside and in tanning booth (I'd even search out the booths with the "extra face tanner"). But that doesn't make it any easier to look at and accept!

I ran across a really good deal for the new Aveeno Active Naturals Ageless Vitality Elasticity Recharging System, Eyes, so I am currently testing it out and shall report back.

It's a two-step system- the first is a serum and the second a cream. I've been using it for close to a week and I like it so far, although that's not really enough time to decide if my wrinkles are reduced. It doesn't sting or have an odor, and my makeup goes on nicely over it. So as far as I'm concerned, it's a win so far.

If you purchase it from for $40.97 (that includes shipping, but not tax) you'll get a bonus $15 eGift Card to use later at

Then you submit your receipt along with this rebate form (must be purchased before 7-15-10) and get $20 back from Aveeno.

Net price:
$40.97 plus tax
less 15 gift card
less 20 rebate
Final price $6 plus tax

Not too shabby.

And although I myself forgot, you can go through ebates for an additional 1% off.

I didn't know that wearing contacts gave you under eye wrinkles! Used to wear them and now I'm stuck with glasses because I ran out and can't afford to go back and get more.

My ex. asst. manager at my old job has really bad under eye bags. I know I shouldn't be happy for her misfortune and that karma is going to get me for it one way or another but she's such a massive BEEEYOTCH that I can't help but be happy she has them. It makes her look a lot older.

Lasik is the answer to the contact problem. So worth it! Had it 3.5 years ago after contemplating it since 2001. Afterwards I wondered why I waited so long.
