7 Eye Serums (Because Creams Are So Yesterday)
Eye creams are a funny thing, plenty can be thick, creamy and balmy, almost too much for the delicate under-eye area to hack. That is why eye serums are making waves in the beauty world. Of course, both serums and creams work to moisturise and care for the under-eye area. Eye serums, however, like those for your face, are lightweight and able to deliver high-potency ingredients deep down beyond the layers of skin moisturiser can reach. Thanks to those smaller molecules, they absorb more easily without leaving any residue behind—perfect to use under makeup. Scroll through for seven eye serums to snag now!
Hylamide SubQ Eyes (£27)
If you’re in the market for a product that targets nearly every problem that you can think of, from crow’s feet to dark circles, look no further than Hylamide’s eye serum. Housed in this little dropper bottle are some powerful ingredients, like a peptide complex to reduce the look of lines around the eyes, and Flavanoid Glucoside Bio-Active to lessen visible darkness underneath.
Drunk Elephant Shaba Complex Eye Serum (£60)
Drunk Elephant nails it again in the skincare department with its easy-to-use eye serum. Held in a hard plastic bottle with a syringe-like tip, a push button pumps out a blend of antioxidants and cell reparative ingredients that brighten eyes (without light-deflecting ingredients) and effectively treat the issues, whether it be fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, or age spots.
Verso Super Eye Serum (£65)
What makes Verso’s firming and smoothing formula stand out is its use of Retinol 8, a stabilised vitamin A complex that is actually eight times more effective than standard retinol (hence the name). Free of dyes, mineral oil, and other harmful ingredients, it is suitable for those with sensitive or irritable skin.
