I have been a hoarder of eye creams because I have been struggling with various issues at different times. Though eye cream should be used quite consistently (say 3 weeks) to see any effect, I still believe an eye cream should be a must-have in your beauty product collection.

Most of the creams listed below are multifunction eye creams but I have decided to classify them according to the specific issues they treat. These are Puffy eyes, Dark Circles, and Antiaging. I have been a victim of these at some point over those years.

So here I go on debunking eight eye creams which I have been using for different purposes.

Puffy Eyes

Alba Botanica Hawaiin Eye GelPackaging: Pump Bottle

Consistency: Gel-like

Feels like: Not too moisturizing. Tingling sensation when applied around the eyes giving the vibes that it’s working.

Ingredients: Soothing aloe and green tea antioxidants help calm puffiness. Cucumber, chamomile and kelp extracts help firm.

Effectiveness: Immediately works on tired and puffy eyes. It was a miracle for me on the days when I couldn’t get a good night sleep and had to go to work next morning. If you have very sensitive under eye area please try using an emollient-based eye cream.

Price: 12.00 $ for 1 oz.

Soap & Glory Puffy Eye AttackPackaging: Small Jar

Consistency: Gel-like

Feels like: little bit moisturizing. Tingling sensation when applied around the eyes giving the vibes that it’s working. skin looks rested in no time.

Ingredients:  Contains Cucumber for reducing puffiness, orange and apricot extracts for antioxidants. Also, contains pomegranate bark extract and Nicotiana Sylvestris Leaf Cell Culture for anti-aging benefits. also contains botanical soy, rice peptides & yeast proteins for acting against dark circles.

Effectiveness: Immediately works on tired and puffy eyes. I was yet to see its actions on dark circles and antiaging so I categorized it for puffy eyes. If you have very sensitive under eye area please try using an emollient-based eye cream.

Price: $16.00 for 14 ml. or 0.4 oz.

Dark Circles

Eveline Deep Whitening Anti-Wrinkle Cream For Eye AreaPackaging: Small tube

Consistency: Creamy

Feels like: Moisturizing

Ingredients:  Contains cucumber, lemon, Chelidonium Majus and buckthorn fruit extract to act as antioxidant and brightening agent. Contains almond and avocado oil for moisturizing effects & hydrolyzed collagen and elastin for anti-aging purposes.

Effectiveness:  It is very moisturizing on the eye area and works well for hydrating and diminishing dark circles. As per the product instructions, first results of the treatment can be noticed after about 3 weeks of regular application of the whole series. Optimum results are achieved after about 2 months. To sustain the effect, it is recommended to use products from this series during the whole year, not more than 2 or 3 times per week.

Price: $9.99

Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Lift Perfecting SerumPackaging: Pump Bottle

Consistency: Creamy

Feels like: Creamy but instantly absorbs. overall lightweight texture.

Ingredients: Contains oat extract for moisturizing, green coffee for depuffing & smoothing properties and albizia herb for dark circles & anti-aging properties.

Effectiveness: Highly effective. Little expensive but it is my go-to eye cream for the night. The next morning my eye feel rested and the skin texture of my under eyes have improved considerably after using it.

Price: $64.00 for 0.5 oz.


Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus™ Wrinkle Correcting Eye CreamPackaging: Small Jar

Consistency: Very creamy

Feels like: Very moisturizing. Oily skin types should use it very carefully and in lesser quantities. a little goes a long way for this potion. However, It is very good for dry to very dry skin types.

Ingredients: Encapsulated micrococcus lysate (repairs UV damage); vitamins C and E (antioxidants); purified whey protein, xylinum black tea ferment, chlorella vulgaris, palmitoyl oligopeptide, and siegesbeckia Orientalis extract (anti-agers); rosemary leaf, cucumber, barley, and sunflower extracts and trehalose (moisturizers).

Effectiveness: Product claims that your entire eye area visibly improves starting in 4 weeks. In addition, clinical testing proved that the ‘lines’ around eyes disappear by 54% in 12 weeks. I got a sample size but this is no doubt an amazing eye cream for anti-aging. Highly effective and really works on diminishing fine lines. It also helped in improving under eye skin texture.

Price: $45.00 for 15 ml. ( I got a sample size so the jar may look different from the title picture).

Lancôme Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting And Firming Eye Cream

Effectiveness: Highly effective. really worked for de-puffing under eye bags. love the steel massaging head on the tube. skin looks rested after night application. My skin tone around eyes looks very rested and supple so I would say it equally worked as an anti-aging eye cream too.
