One of the hardest Top 10 lists I’ve ever done is this one…Top 10 Eye Creams. Why? I’m so particular about my eye creams that for me to call one a “Top 10” puts it in an elite category. A Top 10 Eye Cream is one I see results from, would re-purchase (or already have repurchased) and most importantly, would recommend to one of my friends. And for someone always in search of the best, that’s a tall order.
Many eye creams excel at targeting one concern, whether it be dark circles, undereye puffiness or general anti-aging (tightening, etc.). My personal preference is an eye cream that addresses multiple concerns. The eye creams that I’ve found that do that.
My Top 10 Eye Creams (in alphabetical order) include:
2. Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 Age Defense Eye Cream $39.50, (review)
I’ve linked to the more in-depth review in all but a few cases, so I will focus on those eye creams here. The Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado was a nice find. Extremely hydrating, this eye cream would be a great choice for any age and excellent if you have dry or sensitive skin. Kate Somerville Age Arrest Eye Cream has a beautiful, silky feel to it and the formula contains nourishing peptides. A nice complement to the Age Arrest Anti-Wrinkle Cream (review), if you’re a fan of Kate Somerville skin care, you’ll love this eye cream.
Another eye cream I really like is the Sunday Riley Start Over Active Eye Cream. This is the first Sunday Riley skin care product I’ve tried and looking at the ingredients, I was prepared for tingling, but didn’t have any. The formula contains actives like Vitamin C, pomegranate seed oil and rose hip oil (antioxidants), emollients like Squalane and olive fruit extract. In using Sunday Riley Start Over Active Eye Cream, I found it best at improving dark circles and tightening (general anti-aging). If those are your concerns, then take a look. On the other hand, if your primary concern is needing more moisture in the eye area, I think you might benefit from others in the list.
Although I didn’t list it because technically it’s not a cream, the Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum, $65 (review) is an excellent eye treatment that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and consider among my top favorites.
