Eye creams: 10 of the best | Funmi Fetto

There are a lot of pretenders out there, but for a refreshed eye area, these creams are the real deal

“Can you recommend an eye cream?” is quite possibly the beauty question I am most often asked. But for the longest time I had no answers. Why? Because most eye creams are pointless, offering nothing your daily moisturiser can’t fulfil. (Additionally, if a cream’s sole purpose is to “refresh” the eye area, definitely give it a wide berth: cucumber slices will suffice.) These 10 eye creams, however, I’ve found to be excellent. They include active ingredients and antioxidants, such as retinol and vitamin C, that are proven to work, so they’re more likely do what they say on the tin – smooth, de-puff, hydrate, brighten, etc. There is a caveat. People predominantly ask me for eye cream suggestions to eradicate heavy, dark circles. Here’s the thing. If you have no underlying health issues, you’ve had more sleep, a healthier lifestyle and good diet, and still your dark circles show no sign of shifting, you don’t need heavy-duty eye creams – you need concealer. Dark circles, for the most part, are genetic and nothing topical can resolve that. Sorry for the bad news, but unlike the rogue eye creams on the market, I’d rather manage expectations.
