It's all about the Eyes!

One area on my face that I am always watching for when it comes to lines and wrinkles is my eyes. I have used a fair number of eye creams in recent years, but one thing I like are eye creams that have an applicator on the end, be it a roller ball or an applicator that is soothing.

In recent months I have been on a bit of a mission to find some of my favourite eye creams and I have managed to find four that I really like and have used the most.



It's all about the Eyes!


Pixi by Petra 24K Eye Elixir (£22.00) which is an anti-fatigue peptide serum that massages away puffiness as it smoothes and refreshes the eye area. The formula contains actual gold, to stimulate circulation, peptides to plump fine lines, and raspberry to tone the skin. The metal rollerball gives a fantastic cooling feeling on application, which is instantly refreshing.

Vichy Idealia Eyes (£23) is enriched with ingredients that both immediately and sustainably rejuvenate the area. There is also the use of instant illuminators and a combination of DRM-Bright complex and Vitamin B3 to reduce dark circles, Vitamin CG to smooth fine lines, and Caffiene to energise. A rich infusion of Vichy’s signature Thermal Spa Water intensely soothes the area.  I love the applicator on this product, it is described as being a revolutionary applicator that replicates the soft touch of a finger, made from ultra flexible and ultra soft silicone.

Garancia Phantom's Tears (£25) is possibly the best name for a product I have ever come across! It is a 4 in 1 Eyelid and Eye Contour Area Treatment with active ingredients to combat dark circles, bags, wrinkles and sagging and it also contains High-Tech light reflective powders and active patented ingredients to help combat the appearance of wrinkles, protect superficial periorbital blood vessel from the loss deposit of pigments responsible for colouring dark circles and pufiness, promote their natural elimination and redensify the supporting tissue by boosting collagen and hyaluronic acid.  The small rollerball on the end is exceptionally soothing and comforting around the eye area when used.

Eucerin AQUAporin Active (£15.50) is enriched with Ginseng and is an ophthalmologically tested, moisturising formula that works to provide deep and long-lasting hydration around the delicate eye area to de-puff and counteract the appearance dark circles. Hydration is a key factor for healthy skin as we all know and the Aquaporin Active range uses the skin’s own distribution channels (Aquaporins) to give it the hydration it needs. It uses a unique, patented formula which works by transporting moisture between the skin cells for optimal, maintained skin hydration. The applicator is a metal nib which glides under the eye with ease and gives an instant cooling effect.

Each one of these eye creams has been fantastic to use and each one has it's own specifically designed applicator which all work differently but are all cooling, refreshing and all help with puffiness and dark circles.

Do you have a favourite eye cream?

  1. I've never worried about my eyes (apart from the nights when I have to pull an all nighter) used to use something similar to Eucerin AQUAporin Active. Great product information!

  2. I love using rollons especially round the eyes. I think Pixi by Petra 24K Eye Elixir might be the one for me.

  3. I don't normally spend a lot on eye cream, I usually use the one from Simple but i don't use it as often or worried about it. But thank you for sharing such a great selection and perhaps I would invest in one in the future.

  4. I am not a big fan of applicators and roller balls and prefer to use my fingers, but these all sound packed with amazing ingredients!

  5. I tend to just use a moisturizer. I love the packaging on the Garancia one but these are all a bit pricey for me! They all sound good though, I guess its true you get what you pay for :)

  9. I have never used an eye cream before. I don't like things round my eyes as I'm always scared I'll slip and blind myself.

  19. I have to admit that I haven't tried any of these! I'm currently using First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy (which is a mouthful isn't it???) and that looks very similar to the Eucerin AQUAporin Active one you mentioned above :)

  33. Eye cream has to be the one product that I forget to do the most...but it is so important! I really need to get better at remembering to apply this at night. I just got an eye cream from Algenist and can't wait to try it out! I hear such awesome things about the brand!

  34. Never been a fan of these types of applicators for my eyes, I prefer using my finger and patting motion, but I love "Phantom's Tears" what a brilliant name.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I find its so hard to come across a eye cream which actually works. I'm having the driest under eye area and so many eye creams don't works. So thank you for sharing these :)
