Our 7 Favorite Eye Creams

I get asked daily about eye cream. SOME of you (and you know who you are) don’t even use any! Well today’s the day. Because that delicate area is the window into your all of your bad habits—and the first thing to go. I asked the BB crew for their favorite eye savers, so you can take your pick. Which ones did we miss?  –Elizabeth

(clockwise)  RoC Multi-Correxion Eye Treatment ($27) – A retinol cream that’s easy on the pocketbook and ruthless on fine lines. Use it at night and something more moisturizing during the day. Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream ($52) – The richest of the bunch, this old faithful fights fine lines and makes skin look extra dewy. 422 reviewer on Sephora can’t be wrong! Avene Soothing Eye Contour Cream ($23) – Hannah’s holy grail for de-puffing and hydrating without harsh chemicals. Kahina Eye Serum ($78) – A reader pick, this lightweight serum e-puffs and smoothes fine lines naturally and without irritation. Bobbi Brown EXTRA Eye Repair Cream ($62) – Catherine loves that this concentrated cream melts right into skin and contains a brilliant built-in primer for stay-put concealer. Korres Evening Primrose Eye Cream ($38) – Coco’s trick for looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! She’s crazy about the price and light diffusing properties. La Mer The Eye Concentrate ($165) – If you’re going to splurge, do it right. This is the only cream I’ve used that visibly reduced my dark circles. And the jar lasts forever.
