You’re Probably Using the Wrong Eye Cream

Hey guys!  So many of you have asked me “What eye cream works the absolute best?” and my answer to that has always been, “Well, what are your concerns?” Just like everyone’s eye colors and shapes are different, the skin around your eyes are different and unique to you too!  Not to mention that it’s the first place your skin will see signs of aging as it’s the thinnest part of your skin so we better take care of it.

For me, my biggest concern with my eyes are that I have dark under-eye circles and as I’ve gotten older, the skin texture around my eyes has changed as well.  So, no matter how old you are, or what your needs are, there’s an eye cream that’s perfect for you. I rounded up my favorite eye creams based on your individual concerns.

1. The Wrinkle Preventor: Honest Beauty- The Younger Eye

This little tube, which kind of looks like a tube of lip gloss, is actually a super hydrating anti-wrinkle eye cream! It’s super light, has a pleasant scent and leaves my skin feeling super soft and moisturized. Did I mention it’s super affordable? (Under $25 bucks!) Your eyes and your wallet will thank you!  This one is great for those of you that are in your 20’s  that are looking into an eye cream to prevent future wrinkles from happening.

2. The Wrinkle Fighter: Kate Somerville- Wrinkle Warrior 

The Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior moisturizer was so great, they made an eye serum version of it. It’s perfect for more mature skin, it targets crows feet and deep wrinkles while delivering ultra hydration. The product also has hyaluronic acid in it which instantly plumps and hydrates the thin skin around your eyes! I like to use it in the morning right before I put on my makeup.

3. The Firmer: Korres- 3D Sculpting Firming & Lifting Super Eye Serum 

This sculpting and firming eye cream from Korres is so weightless it doesn’t even seem like anything is on my skin! It’s great for all skin types and it not only helps tighten the skin around your eyes but it also helps target my dark under eye circles!

4. The 10 Minute Depuffer: Sisley – Eye Contour Mask

I love to use this eye mask when I have an extra 10 minutes to get ready. It’s so cooling and soothing totally helps de-puff my eyes! What’s really cool about this guy is that it’s a mask designed specifically for your eyes! You put on the product around your eyes and leave it on for about 10 minutes, then gently wipe away the excess!  

5. The Age Spot Fighter: Drunk Elephant – Shaba Complex Eye Serum

If you’ve got aging (a little bit more mature as they would say) skin, you’ll love this eye serum. It’s on the creamy side but soaks into your skin almost instantly, and doesn’t feel greasy or gross afterward! The formula has tons of amazing antioxidants that help fight signs of aging from environmental aggressors (like pollution!) and also helps the reduce the appearance of age spots! 

6. The Elasticity Enhancer: Darphin – Revealing Eye and Lip Contour Cream 

This eye and lip contour cream from Darphin is great for helping boost micro-circulation and soothe the skin around your eyes and lips. Plus, it helps firm, reduces the look of lines and wrinkles (which are starting to sneak up around my eyes!) and helps de-puff and brighten!


7. The Dullness Fighter: Cle De Peau – Intensive Eye Contour Cream 

This eye cream is amazing for dark circles, dullness, and wrinkles. I like to use it at night, right before I get into bed so I can soak up all of the moisture as I sleep! When I wake up my eyes look bright and healthy. It smells incredible and (not pictured) it comes with a beauty massage tool to help apply the product! 

8. The Total Rejuvenator: La Mer – Genaissance de la Mer The Eye and Expression Cream

If you’ve got tired eyes, this eye cream is for you. It’s super hydrating and really helps brighten up the skin around your eyes. It comes with a cooling metal massager (which magnetically attaches to the top of the jar so you’ll never lose it!) which is a lifesaver if your eyes are puffy, especially after traveling or long work hours! 

9. The Pollution Fighter: Royal Fern- Phytoactive Anti-Aging Eye Cream 

You don’t realize how much your skin can get affected by pollution, so finding this eye cream was a great discovery for me. It helps fight toxins, plus helps prevent aging. It’s just as light as it is rich, and is really great to use if you know that the skin around your eyes is sensitive.

10. The Dark Circle Diminisher:  SK-II LXP Ultimate Revival Eye Cream (pictured on me)

Last but not least, you guys know my biggest insecurity for my eyes, in particular, are my dark circles.  This eye cream by SK-II has done wonders for my dark under eyes and is made with 8x more concentrated Pietra.  Translation?  Goodbye dark circles and hello brighter, younger looking eyes!

What do you guys think about these eye creams? Did you find one that addresses your eye concern needs?  Let me know in the comments below and have a great weekend!

    I really love your posts and the products look great but as a single mama with 3 kidlets there is no way I could afford any of those suitable. I mean £300 for an an eye cream, not for all creams I might need but just that… Does it mean that I can’t have good skin? I’m also in a wheelchair so I never have much time because everything takes me longer than most people.

      Mizon and Benton have amazing eye creams usually way under $20, also raw Shea butter is fabulous, cereve is also a favorite, I’m turning 43 and still get carded, I use mostly Korean, Japanese, and cereve products. I’m sorry no skin care product is worth $300 😂 also mineral water or rose water between moisturizer is key, good luck 🍀

    Thank you so much for this super thorough round up of all of these amazing eye creams! I liked how you broke it up in to different concerns, so that every problem/issue was covered 😀 <3 Really want to give the Honest Beauty one a try, since my skin doesn't really need anything to rich yet!

    XO, Elizabeth

  • That’s definitely true. I think everyone needs to know their concerns when picking out skin care, not only eye cream.
