01 May 9 Eye Creams We LOVE
I don’t know if eyes are the windows to your soul, but they are certainly windows into how much sleep you got last week. An effective eye cream helps to protect and nourish the delicate eye area, whilst minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Added bonus: by keeping your under eye area plump and moisturized, you will instantly look bright eyed and bushy tailed. Just add coffee.
Choosing the right product depends on your individual needs, so to make matters easier here’s a list of tried and tested eye creams for every concern:
If your under eye area is dry you need a nourishing eye cream that will boost moisture levels.
Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Cream is a luscious but light eye cream filled to the brim with soothing ingredients such as carrot seed oil, aloe gel and 100% pure avocado oil.
Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Eye Cream is like a tall glass of water for dry, tired and aging eyes. Hero ingredient Clary Sage is proven to help increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
A roll-on treatment such as Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Roll-On helps to stimulate blood circulation and intensely hydrate with Hyaluronic Acid, Olive Extract and ionic mineral complex. The rollerball applicator massages the area increasing lymphatic fluid drainage, making this one an excellent choice for banishing puffiness.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Ingredients that WORK are your best bet at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Look no further than retinoids and active plant stem cells.
Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Eye Repair is Philosophy’s most advanced eye cream and clinically proven to significantly reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and lines around the delicate eye area.
Plant stem cells might sound gimmicky at first but they are proven to be an incredibly effective anti-aging ingredient. Elemis Pro-Intense Eye and Lip Contour Cream contains active plant stem cells from Edelweiss that work to protect the shape of skin cells, tighten collagen network and hydrate evenly throughout the day.
We want handbags, not eye bags. Loose skin under the eyes is a common sign that your skin needs help retaining its firmness and elasticity. Arbonne RE9 Advanced Lifting and Contouring Eye Cream is an effective choice that will plump and smooth your skin whilst making the area firmer, tighter and brighter.
Restylane Skincare Eye Serum improves elasticity whilst hydrating with Hyaluronic Acid.
If your skin is easily irritated you need a gentle formula that’s colorant and fragrance free like Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. This eye cream is rich, creamy and an absolute treat for skin in need of hydration. Ingredients include Avocado Oil, Shea Butter and Beta-carotene.
Smooth Make-up Application
Concealer can be a godsend in hiding under eye concerns, but if you’re prone to creasing things can go from bad to worse in a matter of minutes. Prevent your concealer from creasing with the genius L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Magic Blur Eye Cream which blurs the look of fine lines and wrinkles, keeping your concealer smooth and crease free.
