If you have not heard of the importance of an eye cream, especially after the age of 25, I am here to tell you- IT IS SUPER IMPORTANT!

The skin under your eyes is the thinnest skin on your body.  And as I am sure you have experienced, that area shows signs of fatigue before you even knew you were tired.

There are many types but all eye creams are created with keeping this delicate area moisturized and healthy.

I use an eye cream twice a day-morning and night.

Are you currently using regular lotion under your eyes?

I know it seems like it should work just fine but again, this area of your face is delicate and sensitive and you have to treat it like so.

Although you may not be worried about wrinkles yet, it does not hurt to get ahead of the game and prevent them. (I would not suggest going overboard but I definitely think using a product or 2 is a good idea. Even if its once in awhile that you repurchase it.)

And a VERY important note- ALWAYS use your ring finger in a patting motion when applying products around your eye! Your ring finger applies the least amount of pressure and as I have mentioned a few times now (yeesh) that area needs only slight pressure because it is delicate.

If you remember anything from this post, it will be that your eye area is delicate. 🙂

My Personal Favorite Eye Creams

This is probably my favorite but it is also the most expensive drugstore option. Runs around $19.

Why? The gel formula feels really nice on my skin and I really do feel like the moisture lasts all day.

Neutrogena’s claim: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel-Cream, a fragrance-free, lightweight gel-cream that instantly quenches and continuously hydrates skin around the eye area.

Clinique Repairware Laser Focus (TM) Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream

Obviously this a prestige product and runs at $45. But its worth it.

Why? It is clinically formulated so you can be confident in knowing that is truly correcting wrinkles AND smile lines.

Clinique’s claim: See your entire eye area visibly improved starting in 4 weeks. Then, we went beyond our usual clinical testing and invented a unique test to prove ‘smile lines’ around eyes disappear by 54% in 12 weeks.
