Hot! Confessions of an Eye Cream Junkie

We. Love. Eye creams! Love. Seriously. Our staff has used, exchanged, and recommended so many wonderful eye creams, we felt it was our duty to share our knowledge with the world. Inspired by one of our twitter friends, who referred to one of our staffers as “The Eye Whisperer,” we know of some amazing brands that will cure what ails you. From puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines, to just needing some soothing TLC, we’ve got the creams that will get you through the every day stressors, a tough morning, or a long night.

Want an eye cream that can deliver visible results that make you look 5 years younger, for a practical price? Avon’s Anew Genics Eye Treatment delivers results in about 12 weeks. And at around $36 per bottle, this cream is a steal!

An eye cream that uses botanicals and vitamins A,C, and E to repair skin damage and promote a youthful glow? Yes please! Caffeine acts as an anti-inflammatory that promotes circulation and reduces puffiness – so you experience instant relief. Let’s not forget that Dr. Brandt products are great for anti-aging properties. flaws no more r3p eye reduces the signs of aging while supporting natural callogen production and repairing skin. A nice tingly feeling upon application is nice and refreshing – you can feel the process of relaxation and rejuvenation. Dr. Brandt flaws no more r3p eye, Available here, $80

Long term use of this medium textured cream produces visible reduction of lines, dark circles and puffiness for younger, fresher, more luminous eyes. Expect to see a change between 7 to 10 days of consistent use. We would suggest using this cream before bed or in combination with SPF moisturizer or make up for daytime use. Since this cream is packed with moisture, it may sometimes seem slightly greasy. For day wear, make sure to powder down that shine.

We discovered this gem backstage during fashion week – the models were using gobs of it to transform tired looking eyes, weighed down by dark circles and bags, to youthful, luminous, runway ready peepers. We can attest that this gel produces near instant results and feels so light and refreshing we sometimes use it as an eye refresher...just because.

The key is in the easily absorbable Vitamin K, which increases circulation to diminish the appearance of dark circles while orange peel reduces puffiness and fights inflammation. Cotton powder fills in fine lines to lessen the appearance of wrinkles. These instant results, combined with anti-aging rice peptides and enzymes, mean long term usage will produce age defying results.

If you are looking for quick eye-popping results, try this heavenly scented cream, which helps to brighten and firm around the eye area while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Yes, yes…that’s what they all say right? Take it from us. After a long night out, slather this stuff around your eyes before bed and then again in the morning and you will be free of dark circles and puffiness. The Arnica extract in this product helps soothe the delicate skin around the eyes while the cucumber extract and Safflower Oleosomes keep your skin supple, refreshed and moisturized.
