    Default Why do you need an eye cream and a moisturizer?

    Can someone explain this to me? I don't really understand why you wouldn't want something for your whole face that's as good as the stuff for your eyes. Still trying to figure out the best skincare products for me, and it is so confusing!

    As far as I understand, the skin around the eyes is thinner, tends to dry out faster, and is more prone to wrinkling--crows feet. I know I usually end up adding extra moisturizer around my eyes in the morning before I put on make up--it gives me better make up coverage and doesn't make it crack as badly.

    And some face moisturizers have ingredients you wouldn't want to use on thin, delicate eye area.

    According to Paula Begoun (The Cosmetics Cop, creator of Paula's Choice) you don't. I thought this was an interesting read:
