The 10 Best Eye Creams of 2019

Best Eye Cream Buyers Guide 2019 - ReviewThis

Oh, the eyes. So beautiful, so delicate, so susceptible to the signs of aging. Puffiness, bags, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles, crow's feet. None of us are immune, even at a young age. Fortunately, there are some pretty effective solutions to help stave off those pesky enemies of the eyes. And we've compiled a list of our 10 best eye creams of 2019.

Many eye creams promise to do the same things: reduce swelling, lighten the circles, nourish and hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes, help wrinkles and lines fade away. But not all eye creams are created equal. We've searched high and low for the best of the best. Some brands you know (Olay, Cetaphil), the others you may not recognize. One uses caviar extracts, another uses snail secretions. For real. The one thing they all have in common, though, is that they do a masterful job of fighting the signs of aging, nourishing the skin around your eyes, and helping you achieve a more youthful appearance. What else could you want from an eye cream? 

Our list of 10 best eye creams of 2019 features some products that are creams, some that are gels, others that are balms, and they're all created to make your eye area look its best. But, as always, keep in mind... what works for some people may not work for others. So, read on, check out the products below, and decide for yourself what you think the best eye cream is for you!

If you're looking for an eye cream that does it all, you can end your search now. Pure Biology Premium Total Eye Cream Serum is the total package, a multitasking marvel that moisturizes, refreshes, lifts, restores, and fights the signs of aging.

Restorative ingredients like shea butter, primrose oil, and other natural extracts help lift the skin while EyeBright, caffeine, and Vitamin C promote antioxidants and increase collagen to brighten and protect skin.

Pure Biology Premium Total Eye Cream Serum's formula is full of good stuff (see above) and free of bad stuff, like GMOs, fragrance, and parabens. It's also a cruelty-free product, so you can feel good about buying and using it.

Eye creams are not unlike just about any other beauty product. Most brands promise customers the same benefits: miracle cures for dry skin, elimination of under-eye circles, magic vanishing of wrinkles to shave years off people's appearance. Most of the products on our Top 10 Best Eye Creams list assure customers, to some degree at least, that they'll help diminish fine lines and wrinkles, brighten the dark under-eye circles, and reduce puffiness. And the creams on this list certainly do. But what type of eye cream is right for you?

First, let's look at why there's such a need for eye cream. The skin around the eye is very thin, delicate, and sensitive. It's susceptible to dryness because there's no real natural moisture provided to that area. That dryness, combined with pretty much every facial expression you make (smiling, crying, wincing, blinking, etc.) makes the eye area super-prone to wrinkles, creases, and lines. Combine ALL of that with other contributing factors like smoking, lack of sleep, and lack of sunscreen, and you've got the makings of a tired-looking, aged set of peepers. That's where eye creams come in.

Formulated as either creams or gels, they're specifically created to address the sensitive eye area. Eye creams generally provide intense hydration to take care of the dryness issue, helping to smooth and soften the skin. Many are infused with other ingredients that help reduce swelling and puffiness, conceal wrinkles and lines, and brighten the skin to lessen the effects of dark circles.

For essential hydration and plumper skin, look for products with hyaluronic acid, which boasts amazing moisture-retention properties; glycerin is important for hydration as well. Peptides (or neuropeptides) stimulate collagen and elastin production to improve your skin's tone and texture while being gentle. Caffeine actually helps lighten the dark circles and reduce puffiness. Vitamins C and E are effective at battling wrinkles. And those are just a handful. So, there are plenty of ingredients and antioxidants to look for in an eye cream.

There are lots of eye creams out there from which to choose, and we've narrowed it down to our 10 favorites. But remember, there are no miracle cures. None of the creams on our list will instantly remove your wrinkles or completely erase dark under-eye circles or permanently remove swelling or puffiness. However, these eye creams can certainly mitigate the effects by nourishing your skin, smoothing it, and rejuvenating it.

FAQ

What makes eye creams a good idea?

Eye creams have been specially formulated to care for the skin around your eyes which is pretty delicate and rather thin compared to other parts of your face. And that makes them an excellent option for providing it with some much needed pampering. Especially since that part of your face is one of the very first spots to show the effects of exposure to sunshine, UV rays, dust, smog, and several other factors which simply spell bad news for your body’s largest organ.

The very best eye creams contain antioxidants, moisturizers, vitamins, emollients, and anti-inflammatory ingredients, in suitable quantities. Hence, they’re capable of combating dryness, soreness, as well as UV damage. Such products will also not only moisturize your skin, but will lock in moisture too. All these qualities make eye cream a superb choice for caring for the skin around your eyes.

What’s the best way for me to apply my eye cream?

Eye cream should be applied to the skin which surrounds each eye with a delicate touch.

Doing so as opposed to solely focusing on the skin beneath will ensure that the entire area will benefit from the moisturizing, nourishing goodness the product has to offer.

Especially since it will target all those fine lines, as well as any resulting damage from sun exposure and soreness.

Certain experts recommend applying it with a series of gentle dabs before gently rubbing it in as opposed to massaging it in vigorously, to prevent your skin from becoming sore and irritated.

What ingredients should I avoid?

In some ways, knowing which eye cream ingredients to avoid is just as important as knowing which are virtually indispensable when selecting an eye cream. Some ingredients which have caused particular concern to healthcare professionals include:

Phthalates

Cosmetic products often come to us floating on a fragrant cloud. However, quite often, the source of that enchanting scent might just turn out to be a rather worrisome bunch of chemical compounds, otherwise known as phthalates.

Known to pop up in just about every cosmetic product you can think of—nail polish, moisturizers, shampoos, soaps, and makeup items—this family of chemicals has also been linked with health conditions such as endocrine issues and cancer.

Quite frequently, manufacturers will list them as: phthalates, DEP, DBP, DEHP, and fragrance—a clear sign that such products might be best avoided.

Parabens

Heavily relied on by manufacturers to prevent microbes from thriving in your cosmetics, parabens are another family of compounds which are likely to make an appearance anywhere you look.

Their widespread use notwithstanding, these chemicals have been linked with testicular and breast cancer.

Names to pay attention to when examining cosmetic ingredients include: benzylparaben, butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben.

Oxybenzone

A firm favorite of certain manufacturers to stave off sun damage, this chemical ingredient has actually been linked with hormonal issues, irritation, as well as allergies.

What natural alternatives to eye creams are there?

If you’re in search of the best ingredients which will come packed with all of Mother Nature’s goodness and no bothersome caveats, you’ll be thrilled to know that there quite a few of them, and we’ve listed a few firm favorites right here:

Shea Butter

In recent times, this tropical, whitish vegetable butter has taken the beauty world by storm. And given its abundance of awesome qualities, it’s pretty easy to see why.

There’s its moisturizing touch, its anti-inflammatory qualities, as well as its ability to make your skin extra firm and supple. All of which spell good news for the skin around your eyes.

Coconut Oil

Another one of Mother Nature’s miracle remedies, this fragrant oil is a popular favorite among beauty experts all over the globe—and with good reason too.

There’s the fact that it’s kind to sensitive skin, great at repairing damaged skin, will prevent excessive moisture loss, is comedogenic (a fancy word for products which won’t block your pores), and will feel light against your skin, which makes it an excellent option for combining with other natural ingredients to create the perfect natural night cream.

Aloe Vera Gel

A vitamin-rich revitalizing goo, this soothing extract which starts out as a spiky frond, is one of many wonder plants which has become a staple of the beauty and health industry.

But perhaps its popularity comes as no surprise given its abundance of vitamins—including vitamin A, C, and E known to work wonders on the skin—as well as the fact that it contains potassium, magnesium, and zinc.

The presence of all these awesome nutrients means that aloe vera gel can be relied upon to reduce inflammation, moisturize your skin and protect it too—qualities which make it a superb choice worth considering as a natural ingredient for caring for the skin around your eyes.

How effective are eye creams at banishing crow’s feet?

The skin around your eyes is not only the thinnest but is also especially susceptible to dryness, fatigue, and stress, resulting in the appearance of tell-tale wrinkles including crow’s feet. And yet, the right eye cream can work wonders in restoring a rejuvenating touch.

This means that products containing the potent moisturizing ingredient hyaluronic acid are an excellent choice, as a result. Capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water, it’s also a moisture magnet and will attract all that water in the atmosphere and transfer it to your cells making your skin look plumper and younger too.

Vitamins A and C also enhance collagen production and are important ingredients eye creams should contain as well.

Emollients such as olive oil, coconut oil, and the multi-faceted marvel that is shea butter will also soothe your skin, keep it supple, and protect it from excessive moisture loss.
