Eye Savers

Set your sights on the ultimate eye cream.

Tell your facialist you don't use an eye cream and a gasp will follow. But why, if you use a quality face cream, do you need a specific product for the eyes? Well, to begin with, skin here is ten times thinner than the cheeks, so it's ultra delicate. The pores in the eye area are tiny, and the comparatively giant molecules in a face cream can clog them and lead to puffiness over time. Issues such as lines, bags and shadows are usually down to genetics, but that doesn't mean we should accept them. So ditch the cucumber slices, as there are dozens of amazing products out there to help combat signs of ageing: caffeine extract stimulates micro-circulation to drain away puffiness, hyaluronic acid works to fill out wrinkles, and antioxidant vitamin C reinforces skin against the leakage of blood vessels, which cause dark circles. Some new offerings multi-task to combat all your eye woes, so dot them on and hit the sack.

Editor's Picks

BEST FOR: WRINKLES

This heavy-duty cream provides an intensive moisture boost – so crows feet and fine lines lessen, and the eye area sports a beautiful healthy glow.

BEST FOR: PUFFINESS

This salmon-pink tint offers instant refreshment thanks to the cooling formula and the quirky metal iron applicator. Use under or over makeup when peepers are in need of a pick-me-up.

BEST FOR: COOLING

With a refreshing gel texture – this peachy formula instantly rejuvenates tired eyes and makes you look rested, like you had 8-hours of sleep. Plus helps to hold make-up in place – so you don't crease or crack-up throughout the day.

BEST FOR: FINE LINES

A thick ointment-like balm restores radiance, hydration levels, and plumps lines and also protects from environmental aggressors. It's especially good to use before a flight, hitting the slopes or if you're suffering from hayfever.

BEST FOR: BRIGHTENING

This velvety textured lightweight cream, supercharged with high-tech botanicals, diminishes the tell-tale signs of fatigue, dark circles and any water retention that might have built-up.
