And if you're wondering about the naturalness of the product, most of the ingredients are certified organic, and it's free of artificial preservatives, parabens, and sulfates. Plus, the price point is extremely reasonable for a product that works as well or better than some $80 products we've tried. All around an excellent bet if the windows to your soul are looking a little down at heel.
- Step one: "I think the best thing is to use cool, cloth compresses," explains celebrity dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer. He recommends applying them for about a minute or two and then repeating after about an hour.
- Step two: Then, apply a touch of eye cream with hyaluronic acid in it, and it's as easy as that.
Not sure where to start or what to get when it comes to high-end skin care products? Team Bella has tried out lots of luxe skin care items over the years, and here are a few of our favorites. Some are slightly more reasonably priced than others, but all deliver luxurious results.
Whenever a beauty product costs more than $20, I think twice before making the purchase, and at $32, this eye cream isn't cheap, but since it tends to last me well over six months, I have no qualms about forking over my cash at the register. While Aveda claims this product reduces puffiness, I can't say I've noticed a big difference, and while the cream doesn't fade my dark circles, it does create a light-reflecting glow around the eyes. If you're looking for a lightly moisturizing way to perk up tired eyes, you might just want to eye this cream up.
The other day I received an email from a reader looking for a good eye cream, and I thought that instead of just giving her a couple of options I like, I'd open up the floor to all of the eye-stuff experts reading the site. Want to help her out? Then here's what she has to say:
"I'm 25 years old, and I've decided I'd like to finally delve into the world of eye creams (I hope I'm not too late!). However, I don't really know where to start! Makeup counters have advice, but it all seems biased. I'm looking for something meant for a girl my age that'll offer SPF while combating puffiness and dark circles. Does this product exist? I'm a little worried that using the wrong cream could be detrimental—no need to load up on unnecessary chemicals, right?"
In my own experience, on the high end I'd recommend something like a Lancome Genefique Eye ($59), and for a cheaper, more natural option, a product like Weleda's Wild Rose Eye Cream ($22.75). What are your thoughts?
I recently went to Sephora to replenish some of my basics — moisturizer, eyeliner, concealer, etc. A saleswoman asked if I had any questions and I did; I can never seem to make my concealer stay put! She said I needed to start using an eye cream and that it would make my concealer stay. I know there are many benefits for using eye cream, but is this one of them? Or was she just trying to make a sale?
It's always tough to know whether a salesperson is being sincere about what beauty products are actually worth the purchase, or whether he or she is trying to make their sales goals, but when it comes to eye creams, I've got some opinions. Find out my answer when you read more.
Eye creams are total wallet drainers, but thankfully, you don't have to spend more than $20 to get results.

Score.To find out more about these top five, keep reading.
Finding an eye cream that helps reduce puffiness, dark circles, and has just the right texture can take a few hits or misses. Reader Stef42678 has found her match in Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Daily Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream ($13.50). She said:
I really love this Garnier formula because it works great at making my area look better and softer. It helps reduce my morning eye puffiness and adds a soft glow to the area to reduce lines. It is great for using at night and feels creamy on, not greasy.

Eye creams can get a little pricey, so they're a beauty item that you want to make sure you'll have around for awhile. Recently, reader Cmill38 reviewed Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado ($24.50), and here's what she had to say:
I love this eye cream. It's very light and refreshing. A little goes a long, long way so it will last. I don't really feel like my face is clean at night unless I have used my avocado Kiehl's. It also creates a little glow.
