Fountain of 30

If eyes truly are the windows to your soul then they shouldn’t be framed in wrinkles. At least that’s my opinion. So I think you should only consider the best when it comes to eye creams. even if that means dropping some serious coin. Personally I prefer a cream over a gel for fighting wrinkles. I just think they work better. But, that’s me. Here are 5 eye creams I have tried recently and can recommend without hesitation.

1. Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream, $55

This eye cream is the most popular at Spehora so of course I had to check it out for myself. It’s an ultra-rich, age-defying cream that visibly improves the appearance of all types of eye area wrinkles. It addresses signs of aging in the eye area, including inner corner creases, undereye wrinkles, crow’s feet, lid creases, and undereye vertical lines. The WrinkleResist24 signature ingredients prevent future wrinkles and repair existing wrinkles. I loved how thick the cream was, but was non-greasy when applied. My eyes felt instantly relieved. Pretty amazing for $55. I would have expected this cream to cost more frankly.

2. Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm, $65

Aside form the fact this cream is only available at Sephora, it’s also one of their most popular eye creams. For good reason. This eye balm  the exclusive is comprised of the antiaging ingredient alguronic acid. It hydrates and soothes the eye area to decrease puffiness and dark circles. The revolutionary microalgae-based ingredient alguronic acid fights visible signs of aging. It joins complementary active ingredients to deliver renewing properties to the eye area and doesn’t have anytihng icky in it like Parabens and Sulfates. Following a self-assessment of 100 women, within 10 days of daily use: Skin density (suppleness, elasticity) is restored in 86% of subjects and skin radiance is boosted in 93% of subjects.  Within 4 weeks of daily use: Deep wrinkles were minimized in 78% of subjects and 81% had noticeably tightened and lifted skin around the eye area.

3. Clinique ‘Repairwear Laser Focus’ Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream, $43.50

This new eye cream from Clinique is a great value considering all it does for this price! It provides three-dimensional improvement that visibly smoothes lines and plumps and refines the entire eye area with noticeable results in four weeks. They claim you’ll see a 54% younger look in 12 weeks. I swear I noticed a difference in 2 weeks using it both at night and in the morning under my makeup.

4. AMOREPACIFIC ‘Time Response’ Eye Renewal Creme, $260

I know the price is staggering and I have to admit, I got a free sample which I am now scraping the bottom of, but when i tell you this eye cream is amazing, it’s AMAZING! This eye cream has a powerful 1-2 punchthat renews the area around the eyes taking years off in just days. The advanced 24-hr time-release formula restores collagen production, increases skin’s own antioxidant production and speeds up cellular regeneration to address all aging concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles while radically improving skin firmness. You just need a little so one of these should last a long time!

5.  Freeze 24-7® ‘Eyecing™’ Fatigue-Fighting Eye Cream, $115

Give tired eyes the TLC they crave with Eyecing™ Fatigue-Fighting Eye Cream. Packed with a powerful new technology, Eyecing™ heals, nourishes, revitalizes, detoxifies and moisturizes skin cells to restore a youthful and refreshed appearance. This creamy and soothing eye treatment battles tell-tale weariness with specially formulated Hydroptix-171 Youth Boosting Complex™, a proprietary, time-released polymer that works to revitalize skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness, bags, and dark circles around the eye area.  It also brightens the skin around the eyes.
