As someone who suffers with dark circles and dry skin around my eyes, I am always looking for the best eye cream to help brighten and moisturise my under eye area. As a beauty journalist, I have been lucky enough to try my fair share of brands, but there was one that I was yet to try out.

If you've read any of my articles, then you'll know I'm a big fan of of Charlotte Tilbury make-up, however I had never tried any of the brand's skincare offerings, so I took it upon myself to give both of the eye creams a go to see if they would live up to my expectations. Spoiler alert: they did.

The brand has two eye creams on offer, the Magic Eye Rescue and the Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum. Both retail at around £50, so they are definitely more of an investment, but after trying them out for myself, I was sold.

The Magic Eye Rescue aims to smooth and brighten the under eye area, while the Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum aims to reduce puffiness and refresh tired eyes. 

I was looking for something to reduce puffiness and brighten my pesky dark circles, but also something that would hydrate my skin at the same time.

Keep on scrolling to see how I got on, and for more inspiration, don't forget to check out our guides to how to tackle dark circles and how to treat milia under your eyes. I've also reviewed every single Clinique eye cream to see which one would come out on top. Don't say I don't treat you.
