My top eyelids puffy due to oil gland buildup .Can i put a cream on top eyelid to soften or mayb reduce inflammatory look?
Sounds allergic: What you describe sounds more like a allergic reaction to something you put on your eyelids. I would avoid all make up and try to find out what is causing this.

Possible causes: The skin around the eyelid is very thin and prone to swelling and fluid retention. It could be swelling from inflammation (e.g., allergy eye, contact lens overwear), or simply an accumulation of fluid while you are horizontal (asleep). Do you eat a lot of salt in your diet?
