3 EYE CREAMS FOR EVERY BUDGET

By Maybelle Morgan, September 9, 2017

A good night's sleep can cure all manner of woes. But a couple of restless nights or heavy weekends can have you looking more panda than healthily functioning human being. In these cases, an eye cream to de-puff, smooth, brighten and tighten is just what the doctor ordered. Here are three for every budget…

The best thing for puffy under-eyes? A cooling gel — which is exactly what this pick from Anatomicals offers up. The formula tightens the area, providing a soothing base for makeup. And at this price, there’s really no arguing with that.

 

Anatomicals No Old Bags Allowed Eye Gel, $6.50

Spend

Now, for the science-y part. Hylamide (the same geniuses behind The Ordinary) bringeth forth a dream of an advanced serum which not only serves as a quick fix, but looks to help the long-term correction of puffs and bags. Hydration and circulation, here you come.

 

Hylamide SubQ Eyes - Advanced Serum, $32

Splurge

Yes, you’ll have to dig a bit deeper in your pocket for this one, but it basically does everything you could possibly want an eye cream to do, so no biggie. Exfoliates the eye area to brighten? Check. Contains the magical hyaluronic acid (aka dry skins worst enemy)? Check. Acts as a primer? Check. Soothes puffiness and smooths lines? All the checks.

 

Alpha-H Absolute Eye Complex, $72
