So, you're looking for the best eye cream, but want something that won't irritate your skin? If, like me, you have more sensitive skin, you can't go wrong with Clinique. I have been a fan of the brand for many years, and after suffering with dry skin around my eyes as a result of the cold weather, I was keen to give a Clinique eye cream a go.

However, with such a wide range of options available, I took it upon myself to try out every single one. There are lots on offer for dry skin, dark circles, fine lines and more. It's worth nothing that whilst no eye cream will completely get rid of your fine lines or dark circles, I find that there is something so luxurious about applying one at the end of your skincare routine. Plus, they can help awaken your eye area and hydrate the delicate skin around your eyes.

Whilst on my hunt for the best Clinique eye cream, I reached out to Orfhlaith McKinley, Clinique's National Omnichannel Education Manager, to discuss which creams are best for tackling different concerns. As explained by McKinley, "The great news at Clinique is that our eye creams are for all skin types, instead we have a variety based on the eye concern."

After speaking to McKinley, I learnt that the skin around your eyes has less oil and sweat glands, which is why this area can be drier. The skin also has a thinner moisture barrier, which means the area can be easily irritated, and there are more blood vessels around your eyes, which can result in dark circles if over dilated. Finding little white bumps under your eyes? That could be something called Milia, but don't worry, as we have a whole guide on how to tackle that too.

Clinique has designed an eye cream to tackle lots of these concerns and more, so keep on scrolling for my honest opinion on each one.
