Heads up: I know these eye creams are not cheap, and I totally agree - I probably wouldn’t have both if one of them weren’t given to me for free.
However, it is very important to invest in a good eye cream, and both of my picks last a LONG time. The under eye area is one of the first on the face to show the signs of aging. It’s also far more delicate skin, that needs special care.
LUSH Cosmetics Enchanted Eye Cream, $26.95 @ LUSH Cosmetics
This product is so pure, and smells great. Weird to say about an eye cream, but it’s true. It leaves my skin feeling good, and the pump is so convenient. It’s GREAT for sensitive skin - on my really sensitive skin days, I actually use this as my all-over face moisturizer.
Murad Hydro-Dynamic® Ultimate Moisture For Eyes, $68 @ Sephora
This locks in moisture all day, truly. Even 16 hours after application, even on my driest skin day, my eye area is still supple and moisturized. It even makes my under eye area *look* healthier and less wrinkled (oh, come on, we all have little lines under there!).
The only con is it’s in a little jar, and you have to stick your finger in it. Hello, germs! How are you? Oh well… a quick hand wash before application does the trick.
Honestly, if you’re looking for the most convenient and natural solution, go with the LUSH Cosmetics Enchanted Eye Cream. However, if you want longer lasting moisture and a better looking under eye area, I’d splurge on the Murad eye cream. It’s your call! I personally use both interchangeably depending on the day.
