Don’t you feel like a zombie (at times) when you look at yourself in the mirror? We’ve all been there. Stand in front of a mirror and you will see the eyes of a tired woman with wretched eye bags and dark circles staring back at you. While many claim that a good night’s sleep is all you need to get rid of dark circles and puffiness, the fact is that it won’t do much more than diminish their appearance a bit.
This is where eye creams, also called the dark circle slayers, come to the rescue. Because the skin around your eyes is thin and you use the surrounding muscles all day long blinking, squinting, etc., make sure you use eye creams in the morning as well as at night.
With the availability of multiple eye formulas that promise to refresh and rehab the problem area, here are 7 eye creams that will help you say goodbye to those under-eye problems.
Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask
This reviving gel mask contains the extract of Kalanchoe Leaf, which is also known as the ‘Leaf of Life’. Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask reduces the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines in a matter of just 10 minutes.
Nivea Cellular Anti-Age Eye Cream
If you want an eye cream that delivers instant results then try Nivea Cellular Anti-Age Eye Cream. The formula contains moisturising hyaluronic acid that gives a shot of smoothness to the delicate under-eye area while magnolia extract helps in boosting cell turnover, leaving wrinkles faded and skin firmer.
Kiehl’s Youth Dose Eye Treatment
Kiehl’s new wrinkle-fighting eye cream contains vitamin C and polyphenol-packed grape-seed extract that helps reduce puffiness and dark circles. A multi-benefit eye cream, formulated as a powerful youth dose solution for eyes, also has a shot of gentle pro-retinol that improves the skin’s elasticity over time.
Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream
If you want a product that does everything, this is one product you can rely on. Olay eye cream contains a color-correcting technology that acts as a very light concealer to hide dark circles instantly, while niacinamide, peptides, and vitamins combat wrinkles and dryness over time.
L’Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Eye Treatment
Formulated with pro-xylane, not only does this moisturizer/serum hybrid de-puff and de-wrinkle, it also helps treat and prevent the upper-eye droop. The lightweight cream comes in a squeezable tube with a metal applicator tip that feels cool and soothing to the touch.
Garnier Clearly Brighter Anti-Puff Eye Roller
This gel formula has antioxidants such as vitamin C, mint and caffeine that instantly reduce under-eye puffiness giving a brighter, more rested look. The micro-stimulating roll-on applicator helps de-puff and reduce the look of under-eye bags. All you have to do is gently roll it under the eye from the inner corner to the outer corner. Rub in excess until fully absorbed.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel Cream
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel Cream is loaded with hydrating hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin, and acts as a sponge for dry skin cells. Though it’s a gel formula, it has a long-lasting moisturizing power of a cream that will keep your eye area hydrated, supple and smooth. Dot the gel around the eye area and smooth in until absorbed.
