The Best Eye Creams & Balms
Growing up, I always watched my grandmother put on her skincare and makeup when staying at her house, and one of the steps I remember most was her applying eye cream. I'm sure we can all relate to this- watching an older woman in our life apply eye cream and wonder: why don't we see younger people using this product? To most, eye cream isn't important until you start to see the formation of wrinkles, but in fact, eye cream can be used to delay the onset of wrinkles in the eye area. Today, we're showing you some of our favorite eye creams and eye balms and why you should incorporate them into your routine.
Youth To The People Superfood Peptide Eye Cream
This reparitive-packed eye cream is the perfect one to use if you have some catching up to do. With collagen-boosting ingredients, and all natural sunflower oil and aloe vera, this plant-based eye cream is perfect for all skin types from young to mature and feels light and hydrating on the eyes. Use this eye cream if you need to smooth out any wrinkles or crows feet on the eyes and to add more bounce to the eye area.
Biossance Squalane & Peptide Eye Gel
If wrinkles aren't your major concern but dark circles and puffiness, this squalane eye gel is the perfect fix. While some reviewers said that this eye gel wasn't good for hydration- it is formulated for discoloration around the eyes as well as firming lids and reducing puffiness.
Indie Lee Calendula Eye Balm
Although most clean beauty products are great for sensitive skin, this Calendula Eye Balm by Indie Lee is the safest bet for those who have an extremely sensitive eye area. With an oily, slippery consistency, this balm is great for hydration, smoothing, and plumping of the eyes. This is also a great product to use in the mornings, as it layers well under makeup and doesn't create creasing or smudging under the eyes.
Tata Harper Restorative Eye Cream
If you want a great all-around treatment, we recommend splurging on this Tata Harper number that has 4 to 5-star reviews on every site that sells it. This treatment not only gives the eye area a bounce without looking puffy but helps to diminish wrinkles and undereye circles as well. If you have tried dozens of eye creams and none have worked for you, we guarantee this one will.
