I can’t afford to be less than honest. I know you come to me for the best and most up-to-date advice when it comes to your look. And you’re super-busy, with no time to sift through every piece of fashion and beauty advice out there. Am I right?
So I couldn’t wait to share this awesome post that will quickly answer all your questions about eye creams. No matter what’s going on with your eyes – wrinkles, circles, puffiness (I’ve experienced them all, and so have most of my clients!), they’ve got you covered.
The folks at Review.com took 318 eye creams sold online and in shops, tested them out, and run them past dermatologists, using the latest research to find out which creams are worth the hype.
The dermatologists ruled out some ingredients right off the top, like synthetic fragrance, parabens, and mineral oils, which can block up pores. That’s a big no-no.
They also gave a mega-sized thumbs-up to some ingredients that do a great job, including wrinkle-fighters like retinoids, peptides, hyaluronic acid (it may sound horrid, but actually works by drawing moisture into your cells – you’ve gotta love that!!!), and – believe it or not – caffeine, which is terrific at perking up dark circles.
So which products came out tops overall? I’m sure you’re in as much suspense as I was!
Best for Wrinkles:
Best for Dark Circles:
La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Eyes
Best for Puffiness:

I’ve said for a long time that eyes are the most essential part of your look. The right look for your eyes can literally light up your face, bringing out and spotlighting the best in your personality. It almost goes without saying that when you’re tired, when your eyes are puffy, or when wrinkles get the best of you, you’re not coming across with your truest and best self.
This also settles something I’ve known all along. It’s not just hype: when it comes to eye cream, there’s a world of difference between the best and the rest. Save time AND money: use this guide to stick with the ones that really do what they promise and you know you can’t go wrong!
