10 Best-Selling Eye Creams For Your Peepers
Being a bright-eyed beauty is easier than you think
(SPOT.ph) Bad skin habits, regular sun exposure, and your constant all-nighters with the gang (we’re talking to you, people with FOMO) all contribute to those dark, wrinkly, or saggy bags—er, maletas—under your eyes. Also to blame: the fact that the eye area has the thinnest, most delicate skin in the entire body, which means it needs extra TLC!
Enter eye creams, a.k.a. products specially formulated to care for the sensitive eye area. Whether your problem is dryness, puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, or all of the above, here are 10 of the most popular—and effective—formulas that have got us swooning, complete with goo-goo eyes.
GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream (P1,400) from Origins
Best for: Brightening
This cream is like a double shot of espresso for fatigued eyes: Panax Ginseng revitalizes by boosting circulation in the eye area, while the caffeine component soothes skin and improves resistance against stressors—like your constant OTs in the office! But the best part? Its iridescent pale pink cream has brightening optics to diffuse any imperfections and give you glowing skin right this minute.
Age Miracle Firm & Lift Eye Contour (P699) from Pond’s
Best for: Instant eye lift
Got droopy eyes? Give a sad-looking eye contour a much-needed lift with this formula’s InstantLift Complex, which works to strengthen the fibers deep within the skin while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Now you can perfect that smize!
The Illuminating Eye Gel (P7,600) from La Mer
Best for: Stress eraser
If you love their face cream, here’s an equally rave-worthy treat: This luxe eye gel is also powered by the brand’s legendary Miracle Broth, but in a formula made lighter for the fragile under-eye skin. This effectively minimizes traces of stress and brightens for a wide-eyed look—even if you’ve only had three hours of sleep!
Age Smart Multivitamin Power Firm (P2,750) from Dermalogica
Best for: Plumping and smoothing
Firm up loose, wrinkly, or baggy skin around your peepers with this product’s elasticity boosters. It’s packed with antioxidant vitamins (A, C, and E), which work to improve skin’s collagen and protect against damage. Bonus: The silicones lend a smoothing effect, instantly filling in and masking those pesky lines.
Advanced Night Repair Eye Gel (P4,150) from Estée Lauder
Best for: Aging skin
This silky gel crème is an anti-aging powerhouse: Its active ingredients target the visible signs of aging such as fine lines, dark circles, dryness, and unevenness. While you can use it both in the a.m. and p.m., it’s more potent at night as it complements skin’s natural repair processes while you slumber. (Hello, real beauty sleep!)
Revitalift Laser X3 Eye Cream (P995) from L’Oréal Paris
Best for: Skin-firming
Enjoy laser-like results minus a costly trip to the derma: This fluid formula corrects wrinkles, deflates eye bags, and re-firms skin with powerful ingredients such as skin-tightening Pro-Xylane, moisturizing hyaluronic acid, and energizing caffeine.
Puff Off Eye Gel (P1,500) from Benefit Cosmetics
Best for: Soothing puffy eyes
Spent the night crying again? Soothe those puffy eyes stat while also minimizing the appearance of wrinkles with this eye gel with a custom “ironing” tip—it works to instantly smoothen skin while giving a refreshing cooling sensation.
Re-Everything Eye Serum (P2,100) from VMV Hypoallergenics
Best for: Sensitive skin and anti-aging
This is perfect for those with sensitive skin: It’s a hypoallergenic serum that’s fragrance- and preservative-free, so it won’t irritate your oh-so-delicate eye area. Key ingredients include mild glycolic acid to renew, a soy-dervied polymer to firm up, and antioxidant-rich green tea to protect and ward off skin aging.
Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate (P1,695) from The Body Shop
Best for: Looking youthful
This unique eye concentrate is powered by nature—more specifically, Edelweiss plant stem cells, which work to renew the skin around the eye contour for a fresher, younger look. A cooling roller ball delivers the product while also providing a soothing, massaging action. So therapeutic!
Frankincense Intense Eye Cream (P3,250) from Neal’s Yard Remedies
Best for: Organic junkies
The London brand’s best-selling line boasts another wonder product in the form of a certified organic eye cream. Powered by de-stressing and anti-aging frankincense, this visibly reduces the signs of aging in the delicate eye area in as little as 15 days—while saving the environment, too.
