You know the drill: the skin around your eye area is much more delicate than the rest of the skin on your face, and that is why you should take even better care of it and to only use your ring finger when applying creams to it. While it is true that some eye creams tend to have heavier textures than regular moisturisers, we know that you hate that.
So here are some serums and super-light creams that won’t leave you looking like you’ve got some glistening, oily residue under your eyes after application. Because you don’t actually want your colleagues to know that you use eye creams to look beautiful, do you?
Arcona The Eyes Have It ($48, 9ml)
This nighttime regenerating eye treatment serves to strengthen and rebuild skin while you sleep, allowing you to wake up to brighter and younger looking eyes. This is all thanks to its proprietary Glycolymer Complex that hydrates and restores depleted skin with vitamin E. Glycolic Acid also helps to firm and tighten the eye area while increasing collagen production at the same time. You can bid farewell to fine lines.
Arcona is available at Sephora stores
Biotherm Homme Force Supreme Eye Architect Serum ($88, 15ml)
With its light texture, you’ll hardly feel like you’re applying anything. Yet the hardworking serum contains a multitude of active ingredients, such as blue algae that stimulate the construction of cells, and Pro-Xylane that offers a firming action. What this means is that skin cells will be deeply activated, resulting in an eye area that is less-wrinkled, fresher and firmer. The cold Zamack applicator tip offers a cooling effect and also makes it a breeze to apply.
Body Shop Drop of Youth Eye Concentrate ($49.90, 10ml)
So aside from being sung about, the Edelweiss plant’s stem cells also possess skin renewal properties that help to refresh the eye contour area and smooth out unwanted lines, so you can look forward to not having friends comment on how tired your eyes look. Best of all, in addition to its efficacy, it’s enriched with Community Fair Trade Babassu Oil.
Bottega Verde Goji Perfect Anti-wrinkle Treatment For Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes ($39.90)
This high-precision treatment product for wrinkles around the eyes keeps expression lines at bay by fighting the slackening of skin in the delicate eye area. The highly concentrated formula contains multiple active ingredients in addition to the anti-ageing Pro-Retinol and Goji Extract, such as a caffeine complex which reduces swelling and stimulates micro-circulation. The bonus is that the formula also works to diminish puffiness and dark circles.
Bottega Verde products are available at Suntec City Mall #02-454/455
Kiehl’s Facial Fuel “Heavy Lifting” Eye Repair ($52, 15ml)
Cousin to the super-popular “Heavy Lifting” Anti-Wrinkle Cream, this eye treatment is formulated with a powerful blend of Rye Seed, Linseed and Caffeine extracts and smoothes out crow’s feet, lifts skin to reduce bags and brightens dark under-eye circles. Loaded with Vitamin C and Caffeine — stalwarts of the famous Facial Fuel line — this silky cream-gel also features light-diffusing mineral particles that instantly camouflage the appearance of dark circles.
Shiseido Men Total Revitalizer Eye ($64, 15ml)
This multi-tasking eye treatment is inspired by the cosmetic procedure of hyaluronic acid injections and offers targeted results. Concerns it addresses include dryness, sogginess, bags and dark circles. Formulated with Eye Bio-ComplexHA that was developed to maintain firm eye contours, it offers 24-hour moisturising benefits.
