Les pattes d’oie

Les pattes d’oie (pat dwah) literally means duck’s feet, but it’s the equivalent expression to crow’s feet in English. I prefer my pattes d’oie on a duck paddling happily on a pond than anywhere near my eyes, but I must admit that I prefer ducks to crows. Some of the best rated eye creams are French: Lancôme Génifique Yeux and Caudalie Premier Cru, among them. Caudalie products incorporate grapes, one of the most famous creams in the world uses sea kelp. I’m never sure if the eye creams I’ve been using for almost three decades are effective or if they just make me feel better about my efforts to stuff the sands of time back into the top half of the hourglass. But I’ll keep using them; I don’t want those duck feet making any more tracks on
