Why an Eye Serum Might Suit You Better Than an Eye Cream

We've all witnessed the power of a sturdy eye cream on a pair of tired eyes. These days, you can find a formula for everything—reducing fine lines, brightening dark circles, deflating puffiness et all. Yet still, some people don't seem to get on with them, finding them too thick, creamy or balmy for their under-eye area to handle.

And that's exactly why eye serums are making waves in the beauty world right now. Of course, both serums and creams work to moisturise and care for the under-eye area. Eye serums, however, like those for your face, tend to be a little more 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. And as they are silkier, you might simply just find them more of a joy to apply.

Into it? Here are the nine best eye serums we've ever treated our dark circles with.
