Eye creams have been used for decades to prevent or treat the sensitive skin around the eye area. They are considered a staple for daily skin routines but if you look at the ingredient list or talk to your dermatologist you’ll find that there is nothing magical in there that’ll change the state of your skin. It is mostly a thicker formula than your run-of-the-mill moisturizer. Eye creams are just made especially for the thin layer of skin around your eyes since they are prone to wrinkles and signs of aging easier than the rest of your skin.
So do you really need it??
In my opinion.. if you have a good skin routine and a good moisturizer, no need. Most eye creams are ridiculously expensive for MAYBE 50ml of product. If you’re a college kid like me with a minimum wage paycheck, don’t bother. Just keep up with your sunscreen!
