Tested and Approved: Eye Creams

Did you know the skin around your eyes is 40 percent thinner than that of the rest of your face? That's exactly why it's more susceptible to environmental damage and an eye cream is a real and a constant necessity. The primary purpose of these type of creams and serums is to hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes and some of them also have active ingredients to target specific concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, and even puffiness. 

Here is my list of 5 eye creams I've tested through the last couple of years, all approved and recommended. Take a look...


The T2 Oxygen Eye Cream involves a unique “T2” stone mortar extraction process and revolutionizes conventional skincare. It features an incredible breakthrough self-repair and self-healing energy element that instantly activates the skin’s natural repair system.

VIIcode T2 Oxygen eye cream provides constant care for your eyes. During the day, it helps withstand hypoxia, air pollution, UV light and electron radiation, protecting the skin against external damage. At night, it works to reverse the signs of aging by repairing damaged cells and rejuvenating your skin.

Before I go...

Just a heads up on how to apply the eye cream correctly: it’s important not to drag or pull the skin around the eye; instead, use tapping and pressing movements, or gently sweep the formula around them. For the right order to apply your skincare, visit our latest post about it here. 

Remember! A visit to the dermatologist is the best way to discover the right kind of products your skin needs.
