Eye Cream of the Crop

with 0 Comments

Hi Sammy!

I need a good eye cream that is more than just an expensive moisturizer. Any suggestions?


Hi Lorie,

Guess what? I scream, you scream, we all scream for good eye cream.

You'll be pleased to know that I was on a search for my own holy grail of eye creams even before receiving your email, therefore I already had a list of miracle working remedies on hand to battle puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles and all of the other ailments that we ladies need to keep an eye on.


Here are the best products that I spied with my little eye.

NARS Nourishing Eye Cream, a luxurious and lightweight concoction featuring natural botanicals that soothe and condition that oh so senstivie skin around your peepers. It not only nourishes and improves your skin's resilience to generate a radiant complexion, but it also diminishes the appearance of those fretful fine lines for $76. And the packaging is pretty, which is worth at least an extra $15 in my eyes.

Garden Botanika's Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Treatment is a bestseller, hailed as a natural alternative to Botox and only $30 a jar. Eye like that price. Apply this treatment twice a day to moisturize the delicate skin around the eye area while visibly reducing and minimizing visible lines and wrinkles.

La Mer's The Eye Concentrate from Bliss World is a bit pricier for $165 for half an ounce of eye gunk, but it does claim to deflate puffiness, lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten dark circles, and step up circulation all while moisturizing and toning like a champ. Oh, and it comes with a cute little metal ball applicator designed to help mega-size microcirculation instantly...and/or play a mini xylophone.

We may not see eye to eye on splurging on the La Mer, so if you're low on cash you can still avoid the dreaded puffy evil eye with these invigorating Cucumber Eye Pads from Caswell-Massey that have incredible depuffifying powers when you don't have any real cukes in your fridge at $7 for a pack of ten.

Or better yet, pop a couple of spoons in the refrigerator for a few minutes and lay the backs of them on your lids for a quick eye pick me up for free. Frozen peas work too.

Hope these pics hit the bull's eye Lorie.
