Eye creams for me, are an essential step to my skin care routine. The area around the eyes, I've noted, can be one of the first places on your face to show age. Thus in a desperate attempt to keep youthful, I apply eye cream day and night. It should not go on the eyelid, or even right up to the bottom lid- Instead, lightly tap your cream/gel on just above your cheekbone and around under your brow, using your ring fingers. They should then absorb into the area, and you wont end up with puffy skin around the eyes. Of course, read instructions first, as some do differ in how they should be applied.
Liz Earle Daily Eye Repair
Amazingly, you can use this triple action cream on your eyes, lips and forehead, as it aims to target fine lines. With an SPF value of 10, using mineral sun screen protection, it also looks to protect from UV light. Included are reflective particles, that claim to conceal and brighten dark circles that may appear under your eyes.
I love this natural cream, and its a super little addition to a routine. Its luxurious feeling- slightly thick and ever so creamy, yet doesn't fail to sink in brilliantly. For day time use, I use it under my makeup and its a great base, but I also have no problem with using it over foundation if I want a quick re-application moment.

Neal's Yard- Rose Formula Hydrating Eye Cream
With organic wild rose, pomegranate oils and avocado, but also omega 3 and 6, this cream is blended with amino acids to attempt to encourage collagen and elastin stimulation. Again I had great joy in using this, and really liked the creamy yet also gel like texture. A little goes a long way, and its very smoothing to use. No problems under make up, and I think the little pump action nozzle is a great idea as it gives you just the right amount.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal
Like all Elemis Pro-Collagen products, this smells divine, and this cream gel is simply divine to use in general. Even with a tiny amount it spreads and sinks in perfectly, with an intensely moisturising feeling. Containg Padina Pavonica, Chlorella, and Buckwheat, it claims to effectively reduce wrinkles and lines in the eye area. A pleasure to use day or night, and perfect in conjunction with other Elemis products. Wake up in the morning looking bright and fresh- so really rather exquisite in my books!

Matis Reviving Eye Cream
Aiming to reduce the look of tiredness from the eye area. Be it dark circles, puffyness, and other signs of fatigue, this cream is on a mission to combat it. Nice packaging, and a great texture, I found it to be very easy and pleasant to use. One for days you want to appear luminescent- I certainly didn't wake up looking as lethargic as I felt some mornings, so, all in all a thumbs up!

RMK Eye Gel
You get this cooling like feeling when you use this gel, yet its also thick enough to feel like you've been adequately moisturised. Recommended use includes a mini massage around the eye area which is a great idea and only takes seconds! Looking to stimulate blood flow, its aim is to refresh and brighten the area- has a nice fresh scent too. For use morning and evening.

Weleda Wild Rose Intensive Eye Cream
What a lovely softening cream...Is what I thought after using this the other day. Fragrance free, and suitable for vegetarians, this is a lovely product from Weleda, who are well known for their Homeopathic remedies. Containing biodynamic Euphrasia, and organic rosehip oil, it sinks in delightfully and is great under your daily make up. With it trying to soothe tired and strained eyes, the extract of sedum also looks to reduce wrinkles. How wonderful! Would most likely be fab used alongside some of the other rose Weleda products...
