"The Eyes Have It", "Eye, Eye Cap'n", "Eye See You", "Eye Can't Even"...the post title possibilities are truly endless when it comes to how we feel about our ever aging eyes when we gaze (terrified) into the mirror. But when we thought about it, "Eye Scream" really just sums it up perfectly don't you think? We are screaming for help in the eye cream department and our eyes are totally screaming to have less wrinkles and more moisture...oh and we LOVE Ice Cream sooo there's that.
*Before we wax poetic about our fave eye creams we have to tell you we don't get paid by any of these companies to tell you about them. (Although, it might be nice to get tubs o' cream as a thank you now and again...purely for testing reasons of course..just saying')*
Our need to find the best eye cream (with out having to take out a loan...I mean come on we have shoes and other necessities to buy too, ya know?) led us to testing 10 creams over a year or so and here are our top picks.
Revive Eye Complex is by far one of our all time favorites. A little goes a long way and absorbs instantly. No lingering residue or "silky" feeling. Just more firm, moisturized and younger eyes. Its worth every penny! Make up has no problem joining the team with this cream...it truly is a dream! (Watch out Dr Seuss)
After months of sleeping on my stomach I woke up with crinkles on one side of my face and cursed Revive and decided to switch it up, not realizing that the WORST thing you can do for your face besides not washing it is to sleep on your belly. So in my hastiness I tried Korres Black Pine eye cream and LOVED it. It really does firm it all up! Doesn't get rid of the wrinkles but it helps a ton and it all felt a bit more firm :). Again makeup on top of the cream was no problem.
I bought this next one for my hubby because the clinical look of the packaging didn't scream girly, it is light weight yet still packs a punch and has virtually no smell. Philosophy Time in a Bottle goes on perfectly and makes your skin feel totally taken care of, smoother and younger. We didn't even feel the need to put on moisturizer on top of this eye serum. Its pretty perfect.
Here are 2 we are DYING to try....1 is sold out in Sephora and the other is from Target with insanely high ratings from women everywhere and has a price tag wont dent your bank account. If you have tried either, let us know...help a sister out :)
NuFace smoother reads like a dream come true! And the fact that Sephora can't keep it in stock makes us want it even more. Filled with eye fixing peptides and a description that says supports new collagen production..we are sold!
Targets Boots line is filled with amazing products and according to what we read the No 7 Lift eye cream is as perfect as it gets. It laminates, moisturizes and helps the dreaded crows feet...get in my medicine cabinet now!
So maybe pick up a bottle and try it for a while...and maybe it will help you to see you don't need a needle..because lets face it... our crinkles are beautiful...they are a badge of honor. Each crease is a reminder of a wonderful memory...or one that shaped us into who we are.
So go out there and scream it to the world...the THINGS WE HEART girls saved my eyes! Ok maybe not as dramatic but...you're welcome :) We heart YOU!
