I feel like people expect miracles from their eye cream, but it’s not Jesus turning water into wine.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news: crow’s feet, dark circles and hollow eyes are not things an eye cream can magically fix, but they can reduce them.  Botox and fillers, on the other hand, can fix them and honestly for the price you spend on a good eye cream to do a little work, you could basically spend the same amount to do on injectable to do a lot of work, but we can talk about that another time.

What eye creams can do well is reduce puffiness, increase hydration and brighten your eyes.  The skin is more sensitive, so keep those heavier concentrated products away from your eyes and use these ones instead.  Light ones during the day and the heavier ones to soak in overnight please.
