The key to remember about eye creams is understanding the anatomy of this area and what can and can’t be helped with a cream! Many issues that people complain about around their eyes are ‘structural’- they are a result of the way our eyes sit in the eye socket, there can be a fat pocket that develops under the eyes, excess upper eyelid skin can droop,and the under eye area can appear darker because of how close the muscle sits next to the skin to give a bluish hue to the under eye area. A  cream can’t fix these things! 

Eye creams can help decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate the skin to minimize the dark circles under eyes, and reduce puffiness. Be really cautious about product claims that are simply too good to be true and be cautious of really pricey products. 


The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% plus EGCG


I’m actually obsessed with this brand. I discovered them because they use ingredients that are legitimate with proven benefits that we just don’t find in most brands. I also get a kick out of how their labels don’t really tell you much about what the products do:) Caffeine has clinically been shown to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. EGCG is a green tea extract with clinically proven benefits as an antioxidant. This is a great product for this area.
