You Wanted To Know: What’s Our Favorite Eye Cream?
One of the questions we’ve been getting most here at TheBeautyBean these days is about what eye cream we recommend.
While there are a lot on the market that we adore (like these and these), we thought we’d whittle it down to the 3 most common under eye concerns we’re hearing and a single eye cream we love for each.
Eye Cream We Adore…
Diminish Dark Circles. If your primary eye concern is under eye circles, check out First Aid Beauty’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy ($36). Not only does this easy to apply eye cream instantly brighten, depuff, and smooth with caffeine and licorice root, it is also slightly tinted to double as an under eye concealer too. And for all of you with puffy under eyes too, the cool, metal applicator helps to instantly reduce inflammation too.
Banish Fine Lines + Wrinkles. It’s rare that we try an anti-aging skincare product around here that has a profound result in a short period of time. Dr. Brant’s Revitalizing Retinol Eye Cream ($55) is one of those rare times. With Dr. Brandt’s proprietary ruby crystal complex, this eye cream helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles while also moisturizing for eyes that look more youthful both immediately and, more profoundly, over time.
Combat Dryness. If your primary goal is to up the ante on the hydration (and, no, your regular face cream won’t do since the skin around your eyes is a unique beast requiring smaller molecules and gentler formulas), try m-16 Hydraboost Eye ($78), a peptide-packed eye cream (those peptides help to strengthen your skin to prevent signs of aging later on) that also boasts of a hefty dose of vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid, both of which hydrate and plump the eye area. Plus, it’s 100% paraben-free, 100% synthetic fragrance-free, and gluten-free too.
