If it’s possible to have an addiction to skin care products, then I am an eye cream junkie. I try every single one looking for the best fix. I’m currently using a rotation of eight–some for day, some for night, some for those days when it looks like I’ve been up til 4am downing margaritas. (But I would never do that because I hate tequila. Also alcohol is bad for your skin. Digression.) Dr. Frank recommends a heavier eye cream at night during the winter months. All eye creams are fairly hydrating, so it’s a matter of tweaking depending what kind of treatment ingredients you’re looking for.
• Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream, $43.50: The newest addition to the Repairwear line, this eye cream is rich and hydrating, but not greasy.
• Kiehls Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream, $42 : One of the newest products in the Kiehl’s stable, this rich creamy product feels as expensive as much more luxe brands we’ve tried.
• Lancome Renergie Multiaction Eye, $78: The product is a full-on system. You get hydration, anti-aging ingredients, and undereye bag/dark circle treatment all in one.
• Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Cream, $10: A drugstore option which has a lot of the same ingredients as more expensive options, antioxidants and vitamins. Moisturizes and treats fine lines.
• Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm, $65: This hydrating, soothing gem is from a company whose products are all the result of hardcore scientific research with microalgea. Yes, algea.
