We cannot overemphasize the importance of a good eye cream. The eyes are one of the first places to show signs of aging, and it's the one area of your face that deserves the utmost care and love. That being said, an eye cream is not the product to cut corners on when it comes to price. A good one will cost you, but the youthful results should prove well worth it in the end. We've always been very diligent about protecting our eyes, and in this post we'll share with you the best eye creams we've used. We'll start with the one we've been using the longest, Lancôme Rénergie Eye Multiple Action Eye Cream ($78). It's a fantastic two-step product in which you first apply the eye cream and then finish with a few dabs of a sheer concealer-like veil. The eye cream is available in three shades of the concealing veil: Light, Medium (our shade), and Dark. Rénergie Eye Cream is hydrating and lightweight, and most importantly a great anti-aging formula. As soon as we dab the concealer-like veil around our lids, our eye areas look instantly better. Because it's extremely sheer, it makes a great base for actual concealer or foundation. Another excellent eye product we've been using as of late is Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye, which can be ordered for $49.50 from Nordstrom.com (we love their free shipping and return policy). This silky serum is anti-aging intensive and designed for nighttime use. We like that it repairs past damage and helps our eyes appear more rested in the morning. Finally, an eye cream that has most recently impressed us is Arbonne RE9 Advanced Corrective Eye Crème ($55). One of the first things we noticed when using it is that a tiny dab is all you need for your eyes to feel fabulously moisturized. One thing that can be really frustrating when it comes to eye creams is having to apply a lot of product for the eyes to feel quenched. This particular eye cream is a great buy since a little truly goes a long way. The formula is very hydrating and feels wonderful on our skin. Over time, RE9 Advanced Corrective Eye Cream diminishes eye puffiness and circles, and we really like that it's plant-based and animal-friendly.
