If you’re like me, your day revolves around your skincare routine. My day hasn’t officially started until I’ve cleansed, toned, and moisturized and it’s also not over until all my makeup has been removed and washed off. As someone who is so obsessed with skincare, when I discovered my regime was missing a crucial step, I was shocked and had to remedy it immediately.
Eye cream was somehow MIA from my skincare shelf and with so many on the market, how do you know which one is right for you? Better yet, which one will jive with your makeup and other skincare products?

Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift, $96 & Total Eye Care, $76
When I got a facial at Tips Nail Bar, the aesthetician used all Dermalogica products (my fave!), and not only did my skin look and feel amazing, but so did my under eyes. The combination of both the Stress Relief Eye Lift and the Total Eye Care, made such a difference almost instantly. If you’re looking for the perfect tag-team eye duo to use, these are the products to reach for!
Is there anything that Gwyneth Paltrow can’t do perfectly? Didn’t think so. goop’s Perfecting Eye Cream is another must have from the line and yes, I’m obsessed. At first glance, I wondered what made this eye cream different from all the others but this one contains sandalwood nut oil and olive butter. It’s super rich and plumps the under eye area and gives a youthful looking appearance.
While no eye cream works like a magician, the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue Cream is the closest thing to it. The time-released retinol molecules work to help eyes appear younger and more radiant, hour-by-hour. I loved that the cream not only went on super smooth and felt amazing, but it also didn’t effect my concealer either. Charlotte clearly thinks of every step in a woman’s routine!
Even though I’m easing into my mid-twenties, anti aging is something that I’m not quite thinking of yet. Something I’m more aware of are my dark under-eye circles and I’ve frankly tried everything to banish them. When an email landed in my inbox about Neostrata’s Brightening Eye Cream, I admit I was skeptical but ever the optimist I gave it a try. I can proudly say that not only was I proved wrong but my dark circles have started to diminish and that’s all thanks to the antioxidants, peptides, and algae extracts!
