In the day and age of screens, everyday stress and lack of sleep – our eyes bear the brunt of it and in our quest for bright, puff-less and hydrated under-eyes, it can be hard to know what products to use. First of all, decide on your priorities and the results you want to achieve – do you need to de-puff, brighten, hydrate or firm that under-eye area? Luckily, in the wonderful world of beauty, there are many products that will remedy all of your under-eye concerns and we’ve picked out our top four favourite products just for you.
Pro Tip: When applying eye cream remember not to drag or pull the delicate skin under the eyes, always dab the product around the eye socket, avoid the eyelid area and don’t forget to apply over the brow bone. You don’t need much product either – just a small pea-sized amount should suffice. Applying eye cream should be the last step in your skincare routine.
Our pick for the best de-puffing under-eye product is the Dermalogica Stress-Positive Eye Lift. It is an active, cooling gel-like masque to help energise the under-eyes and reduce signs of stress and fatigue. This clever product reduces puffiness and also increases the skin’s luminosity. With the applicator made from metal to help cool puffy under-eyes as you apply.
Homegrown brand, Syrene has our pick for the best hydratind eye cream with their Aqua Restore Eye Cream. This eye gel restores the elasticity of the skin and smoothes the appearance of fine lines around the eye area – while firming and brightening, leaving eyes feeling restored and refreshed.
Another star product from Dermalogica is the BioLumin-C Eye Serum. This supercharged serum is packed full of Vitamin C, to dramatically brighten and reduce those pesky dark under-eye circles. The serum is a lightweight consistency and is also said to firm and prevent premature aging around the eye area.
Glow Recipe’s Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Mask takes the win for the best firming eye product. This product has a creamy consistency and is formulated with rich anti-oxidants including avocado and features a gentle form of retinol. Pop it on before bed and leave it on all night for a refreshed, under-eye area in the morning.
