The delicate skin around your eyes needs a little extra love and attention when it comes to choosing and applying your skincare. Under our eyes, our skin is only around 0.5mm thick which is very thin and delicate compared to the skin on the rest of your complexion.

As the skin is so thin, it is more vulnerable to the effects of dehydration, UV exposure, allergies and sleep deprivation. Such factors can leave our under eye dull, dehydrated and prone to fine lines and wrinkles.

As we all suffer slightly differently with our under eye area, there are a wide range of eye creams and solutions available to help you improve the brightness and vitality of the delicate skin around your eyes. Whatever your concern, there is an eye cream especially for you.

For dehydrated eyes

If you suffer from dehydrated, flaky skin underneath your eyes, the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Eye Awakening Balm may be just what you need to smooth and nourish the delicate skin.

Enriched with Vichy Thermal Spring Water and Hyaluronic Acid, the Awakening Balm works to brighten and replenish lost moisture in the area, smoothing the appearance of dehydration lines.

For mature eyes

More mature skin often needs a little more help when it comes to restoring hydration as it is a lack of moisture in the skin which causes sagging and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the under eye area.

The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II works to reduce diffuse the appearance of fine lines, crow's feet and uneven texture for a brighter, more youthful under eye. The rich, silky gel cream glides across the delicate area, deeply nourishing the skin.

The exclusive ChronoluxCB Technology enhances your skin's natural regeneration process so you wake looking and feeling refreshed with signs of ageing minimised.

For tired eyes

Transform the look of dull, tired eyes with the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream. Formulated with natural optic brighteners, the luxurious cream refreshes your under eyes, rejuvenating the skin to reduce any signs of fatigue.

Energising coffee bean and radiance boosting Panax Ginseng minimise the appearance of dark circles, bags and puffiness making the GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream a wonderful all-rounder.

For puffy eyes

Whether caused by a lack of sleep or a minor allergic reaction, we all suffer from puffy eyes from time to time. Cooling, soothing products work wonders on our under eye area, helping to instantly brighten and calm the delicate skin.

The Darphin Hydraskin All-Day Eye Refresh Gel-Cream instantly cools the eye area upon application, reducing any puffiness and inflammation. The feather light gel-cream absorbs easily into the skin and immediately gets working to hydrate and minimise the appearance of dark circles.

For dark circles

Dark circles, particularly those on very pale skin, are often difficult to cover and can really dull the overall appearance of your complexion. An eye cream which includes a subtle tint is the perfect first point of call when attempting to reduce the appearance of under eye discolouration.

The NUXE Nuxellence Eye Area Contour is a unique treatment which combines light-reflecting particles and resurfacing powders with skincare ingredients to restore luminous, bright-looking eyes.

Hyaluronic Acid and Passionflower deliver moisture and hydration to minmise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles whilst the massage tip applicator soothes the skin and combats the signs of fatigue. Thanks to its apricot hue, the Nuxellence Eye Area Contour counteracts dark circles for a brighter, more radiant eye.

For sensitive eyes

Sensitivity is very common around the eyes as the skin underneath your eyes is so delicate. Using a rich, heavy cream intended to reduce the appearance of fie lines can often be too much for sensitive eyes so using a product such as the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Eyes is ideal.

Specially formulated to soothe and calm sensitive skin, the Ultra Eyes cream gently nourishes your delicate under eye skin, alleviating dryness without causing irritation. Free from any unnecessary chemicals or additives, it is the perfect simple but effective eye cream for those with sensitive skin.
