I've been testing out a few new eye creams for a while now and here are some quick thoughts. I have a very dry under eye area that could always use a good dose of moisture. While all these seem to provide moisture, I still have to rely on a good concealer for color correcting/hiding my dark circles!
The Jurlique Nutri-Define Eye Contour Balm ($74; jurlique.com) is a very rich, creamy eye balm that is perfect for this time of the year. Its a good one if you have a drier under eye area, moisture being your main concern. Its great for under makeup too and does not leave a film behind. The applicator is good if used like a a spatula, but I prefer using my fingers for massaging the product in.
The Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream ($58; sephora.com) is another great eye cream I'm currently loving. Its a basic, moisturizing eye cream that feels super light and sinks in very fast. Its good value for the price and layers beautifully under makeup too. I do feel like my under eye area feels less dry and a little more refreshed - yet to see any lightening of dark circles though.
Alba Botanica’s Fast Fix Collection ($5.99; target.com) is a purse sized collection with products targeted at specific problems like tired under eyes, dry lips etc.The Fast Fix for Puffy Eyes is a cooling gel, good for during the day, and very light too. If you are just looking for something that adds a teeny bit of moisture this is good. I have a drier under eye area, so I did need some eye cream in addition to this. The Fast Fix for Undereye Circles is more like a light concealer/corrector in a yellow tone that is supposed to blend and adjust to your natural skintone. I did find that it was a tad too light for my skintone, the coverage was medium and evened out my dark circles, even though it was a tad sheer. A good match for lighter skin tones especially if you don’t want anything full coverage or thick.
