When exhaustion hits, your eyes give the game away. The skin around your eyes is forty percent thinner than the rest of your face, making it more susceptible to dark circles, puffiness, lines and wrinkles. Give this delicate area some extra special TLC with these top eye creams.
Aurelia Eye Revitalising Duo (£90, aureliaskincare.com)
This AM/PM eye duo work in partnership to fight all the signs of ageing around the eyes. Apply the cooling rollerball in the morning (perfect for late night-induced puffiness) and the repair cream at night to protect against ageing, fight dark circles, wrinkles and puffiness, whilst reversing the effects of UV damage to collagen and elastin.
Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream (£20, balanceme.co.uk)
If your skin is a little drier (not getting enough water or sleep won’t help the cause), this is rich enough without being too heavy for delicate eyes. Formulated with brightening lemon and hydrating hyaluronic acid, virgin coconut, rosehip and carrot oils, to smooth and protect the skin.
Lancome Visionnaire Yeux (£40, lancome.co.uk)
The coolest thing about this eye cream is the plastic applicator tool. Apply a little product to the eye contour and massage in the formula, making diagonal movements from the inner corner of the eye out towards the temples to help drainage and microcirculation.
NeoStem Anti-Wrinkle Eye Contour Care (£39, marksandspencer.com)
The NeoStem skincare range was born after research was conducted into a rare genetic disease that causes children to age very prematurely, and this eye cream is the latest hit. Light enough to feel refreshing after a long night, but hydrating enough to address lines and wrinkles.
Instantly refreshes and ‘tightens’ tired eyes, but also works on dark circles over time. Light enough to reapply over the top of make-up during the day when your lids start heading south.
Soap & Glory You Won’t Believe Your Eyes Moisture Serum (£12.50, boots.com)
If you need a little ‘assistance’ to lift your eyes from the floor at 7am (or 3pm when struggling at your desk), this trio rollerball applicator drains puffiness and feels soothing on scratchy, tired eyes.
Apply this silky, concentrated cream at night and the circulation-boosting Butcher’s Broom and soothing lavender leaves eyes rested by morning.
Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion (£45, esteelauder.co.uk)
A powerful cocktail of free-radical fighting anti-oxidants and moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid in a lightweight serum formula. Can be used AM and PM and even underneath your usual eye cream for maximum effect.
Skinceuticals AOX Eye Gel (£70, effortlessskin.com)
This serum-in-a-gel formula is loaded with antioxidants to fight oxidative stress, puffiness and correct damage. Future-proof your eyes by applying religiously every morning.
Olay Regenerist Advanced Age-Defying Eye Roller (£14.66, boots.com)
This pen-shaped rollerball delivers the smoothing amino-peptide and glycerin complex, whilst the massage action de-puffs and drains away toxins. Chuck in your handbag and re-apply whenever your eyes feel tired.
This thin-but-powerful fluid contains a collagen-boosting peptide, plus red algae and golden chamomile to reduce puffiness. Formulated for very sensitive eyes, so it won’t irritate even delicate skins.
