I’ve been using eye care products from the tender age of twenty and now (many many years on) to me the thought of going without the stuff is unthinkable. But why the heck we should bother spending our hard earned cash on buying a separate moisturizer for our eyes? Well, believe it or not the skin around them is actually as thin as an egg shell, therefore extremely delicate. Facial creams are not specifically tailored to meet the nutritional needs of our precious peepers. I’ve been playing eye spy with a a ton of eye care lately and these five are by far THE best I’ve ever tried…
Packed with essential oils and anti-oxidants, boasting ‘Younger Looking Eyes By Morning’. They really wern’t lying. After just one night with a teeny blob around my eyes my skin felt more supple and looked brighter and well rested.
Burt’s Bees lovely little pot goes straight to the top of the list for value for money. It illuminated the eye area and felt light and silky. With Royal Jelly as a core ingredient my lids and under-eyes really soft. It even had a sweet tea scent. Nice touch. (Ideal for wearing under makeup.)
I almost heard the sound of you just gasping just now! Yes, that is the price. But, hear me out… If you’ve tried Natura Bisse skincare before than you’ll understand the hefty price tag. The brand originated in super luxury UK spas and now retails for home use in stores like Harrods and more recently Liberty’s. The Cure Sheer Eye contains self-adapting pigment matching, so the instant I smoothed it on my dark circles appeared to naturally fade away with a feather light consistency. After just a couple of days use my eyes feel nourished. Although accidental over pumping of this pricy potion nearly brought on a heart attack.
Designed for all skin types the refreshing cool applicator tip feels great in the morning and de-puffed my unsightly bags while the subtle colour tint eased dark circles.
The white tea formulae and blend of natural antioxidants not only cares for the eye area but protects it from damaging pollutants. The cool gel texture helped wake up my eyes and soothed under eye bags and skin felt tighter.
Application: Dab evenly around eye contour using ring finger (we’re less likely to apply pressure and drag the skin if we use our ring finger).
Beauty Trick… A little goes a long way so with any eye care product you only need to use an amount the size of a grain of rice for each eye.
