5 of the Best: Eye Creams

You’d be surprised how many people ask me if it’s actually worth using an eye cream in addition to your usual moisturiser. The answer is always, always YES!

When people talk about the three-step skincare regime, I always want to add a fourth… It should be cleanse, tone, moisturise and eye cream. The skin around our eyes is extra delicate so it needs special care, and there are plenty of options on the market to cater for your specific needs. Are you hunting for the best anti-wrinkle eye cream? The best eye cream for dark circles? Or an eye cream for puffiness? Whatever your skin type, I’ve rounded up a few of the best eyes creams for you to add into your regime asap…


The Best Eye Creams for all Skin Types

Best for: Tackling wrinkles

Decleor Jasmine Eye Cream

This is one of my favourites, as it slightly fills in any fine lines and gives a smoother, blurred appearance to the skin. It’s a great one for under makeup, as it instantly brightens the under-eye area, meaning it’s great for masking dark circles, too.

Best for: Puffiness

Carita Paris Progressif Firming Lift Genesis Of Youth

This anti-ageing eye cream is a great one to use in the morning if you suffer from puffy eyes, because the cooling gel formula feels really fresh and has a firming effect.

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Eye Recovery

My personal pick of eye creams for everyday use, this Sarah Chapman eye cream is great for use in the morning and evening. Containing antioxidants, peptides, and vitamins, it tackles puffiness and fine lines, which smoothing and hydrating skin ready for your makeup application.

111Skin Celestial Black Diamond Eye Mask

If you want an intense hit of hydration and to tackle dark circles, carve out some time to treat yourself to 111Skin’s eye masks. These are great for on the plane, so pack some in your hand luggage for an in-flight skincare treat.
