Does Preparation H Really Help Puffy Eyes?


Question: Does Preparation H Really Help Puffy Eyes?
Answer: All my research shows the jury is still out on this debate, which has been raging among the beauty literati for ages.

I asked Mally Roncal, makeup artist to the stars and the makeup artist for Tracy Reese at the NY Fashion shows and she told me something I can’t print but that translates to -- she would never put a cream for the butt anywhere near the eye. The bloggers over at The Beauty Brain blog site claim the hydrocortisone in Preparation H can actually thin the skin and enlarge blood vessels. What's worse, this is not a product to get in the eyes.

Still, some people swear by Preparation H. Rona Berg, author of the book, “Beauty – The New Basics,” says the shark liver oil in Preparation H reduces water retention in the eye area just like it reduces hemorrhoidal tissues. Frankly, I’m too much of a wuss to try it.
