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!
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.
