To know me is to know I am all about eye creams. I have been since I was 20. The thicker, the better. Yet, even between Botox treatments I have noticed some disturbing lines when I smile. Well, I’m not giving up smiling and am in need of some Botox – so those pesky lines and eye sag have got to GO! STAT. Here are some new eye creams I have recently tried that are all worth a mention to help fight the fight! Anti-aging is my jam.
This new formula from Murad is pretty life-changing. Dr. Murad’s professional-strength anti-aging firming and lifting eye treatment. It contains a proprietary surface-filling and firming technology that instantly lifts, firms and tightens to visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The use of eye pads helps boost the penetration of the powerful ingredients for optimal performance and results. You can actually feel it lift your eyes immediately! Eye Lift Firming Treatment™ is dermatologist developed, vegan, cruelty-free and formulated without gluten, Parabens, sulfates and Phthalates.
2. Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme, $50 – $90
Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme is a high-performance, multi-action, intense moisturizer that dramatically reduces lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, dullness and dehydration. I love a really good, thick eye cream so this one is best used over your serum at night.
3. Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream, $26.50
Clinique‘s new Pep Start Eye Cream is an instant brightening and hydrating eye cream that features a blend of peptides to help combat the visible effects of your busy life. It’s a lightweight eye cream that provides a rush of hydration and instant brightening so you look and feel refreshed, wide awake, and ready for anything in as little as three seconds. I keep it on my desk because its cooling and de-puffing tip instantly helps eyes look fresh plus its peptides help support natural collagen reserves that can be threatened by stress, fatigue and lack of sleep—the tell-tale signs of your actve life. The oil-free formula works under and over makeup. Bonus!
Sulwhasoo‘s Essential Renewing Eye Cream is another amazing age-defying eye cream that revitalizes the delicate skin around your eyes. Green tea, pomegranate and Korean red ginseng fight free radicals to prevent signs of aging. The thick (I love thick) cream restores radiance and vitality while diminishing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness.
NeoStrata Intensive Eye Therapy works multiple ways to lift, tone, smooth and hydrate your eye area. This thick serum contains apple stem cell extracts to preserve the vitality of your skin as anti-aging peptides stimulate the matrix to produce more collagen. NeoGlucosamine fortifies your skin’s collagen support structure while caffeine promotes a more awakened look as it reduces puffiness. Even the deepest wrinkles start to appear softer and smoother. Seriously. They do.
If dark circles and puffiness (along with lines) are your primary concern this is your eye cream. Anti-inflammatory, caffeine rich green tea and coffee (that’s a LOT of caffeine!) de-puffs and reduces swelling while increasing circulation to alleviate and brighten dark circles. It’s concentrated with organic potent anti-aging vitamins, antioxidants and nourishing blackcurrant oil. Truly, 100% Pure contains no synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, parabens, chemical preservatives, petrochemicals or any other toxins which is a obviously preferable.
