Anti-Ageing: Best eye creams
Published 24/08/2011 | 16:10
The skin around our eyes are one of the first areas to show our age - fine lines, dark circles and those dreaded bags. We, at Independent Woman, have been attempting to put the brakes on the whole process by working our way through the best eye creams money can buy.
Having pumped, plumped, rubbed and dabbed, we've finally found the four we couldn't do without:
Oskia's Eye Wonder Nutri-Active Serum
Rich in youth boosting ingredients, Oskia's Eye Wonder Nutri-Active Serum promises to repair, regenerate and restore in just one small pump. With MSM to aid collagen production, Swiss Apple Stem to protect healthy skin cells and milk peptides to give firmer skin, the end result is nothing short of excellent. Fine lines are plumped, circles are erased and bags are given the heave-ho. Having been created for sensitive skin and enriched with rose water, Nutri-Active is a big boost toward brighter eyes.

Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Balm
Dry eyes seeking a soothing solution may find a friend in Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Balm. The highly concentrated formula melts into skin on contact and works through the small hours to ensure those peepers are perky in time for morning. Enriched with beeswax to moisturise, cucumber extract to soften, and carrot oil to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, eye puffiness is reduced, lines are softened and skin is left well protected from dryness.
Available from Bobbi Brown Counters, priced at €63.50
Creme De la Mer's Eye Concentrate
Infused with three unique forms of miracle broth, Creme De la Mer's Eye Concentrate is something of a cure all for dark puffed out eyes.
Designed to improve clarity and reduce discoloration, this potent creme works by infusing the delicate eye area with marine and plant extracts which encourage the skins own optimum rate of cell renewal.
Packed with anti-oxidants to fight against future damage, the price may be steep but the results of regular use are more than passable.

Kerstin Florian's Correcting Brightening Eye Creme
Loaded with a juicy cocktail of vitamins A, C and E, Kerstin Florian Brightening Creme is designed especially to boost skin repair and elasticity and improve skin tone. Perfect for more mature skin types, Kerstin Florian's hydrating formula makes light work of most common eye problems leaving much perkier peepers after only a few easy pumps.
