Beauty Editor-Approved Eye Creams That Make A Difference

Photographed by Meg O'Donnell
Eye creams are a staple product in most of our beauty routines, but they can often be hit and miss.
Too heavy and they run the risk of clogging pores, potentially causing milia and puffiness, or making your concealer slip and slide around. Too light and they might not be as effective at hydrating and protecting under-eye skin, which is thinner and more sensitive than other areas.
There's something else you should have on your radar, though. Experts have recently argued that eye creams are essentially useless on things like dark circles and 'bags', as they can't penetrate deep enough to make a difference. So, what do they work on? Fine lines and wrinkles, if that's what you're looking to combat, as well as dry, tight, flaky under-eye skin. And with winter just around the corner, it might pay to step up your eye cream game.
Ahead, find the tried and tested beauty editor-approved eye creams that we've found actually make a difference.
