Our beauty team has been trying and testing the best anti-ageing eye creams on the market
Everyone knows the basic eye cream rules: apply twice a day, dab, don’t rub, and always use your fourth finger (your lightest touch, apparently). So any old cream will do, right? Wrong.
Not only can too much of the good stuff be just as bad as skimping altogether; using the wrong sort of eye cream can scupper all good intentions, too. Phew. So, since not all eye creams were born equal, we’ve done the homework and found five of the best issue-tacklers for your eyes…
Lift: Darphin Uplifting Serum Eyelids Definition, £45 – A firming blend of wheat, sweet almond extract and essential oil instantly tightens the eye contour.
Plump: Rodial Bee Venom Eye, £115 – The unique combination of honey bee venom and plant stem cells attacks visible signs of ageing by stimulating production of collagen and elastin.
Fake awake: Biotherm Skin Ergetic Eyes, £24 – An energising combination of Chlorella V and caffeine instantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark circles.
Repair: Carita Diamant De Beaute Nuit, £260 for two – Diamond and blue lotus extract support cell repair, regeneration and renewal whilst you snooze.
Prevent: Chanel Hydra Beauty Gel Yeux, £40 – Free radical-protecting blue ginger stops puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and in their tracks.
Et voila. Get dabbing!
