The only one time that I regretted for not using eye cream as often as I should is when I found out there's an un-erasable wrinkle right beneath my right eye. I was going through some low period in life and didn't put much attention to my daily skin care routine hence my skin are kind dry up and wrinkles start to appear here and there especially around my eyes.

Like I mentioned above, once wrinkle appear it means forever. I kid you not, there wrinkles are there to stay! Hence after I got out from the slump, I only have myself to blame that I didn't manage to take good care of myself and let my eyes tell the years of my life more than I myself does. lol. 

So the first step and most important step in skincare is to take care of my eyes and its surroundings so that it will prevent fine lines and wrinkles from appearing. Here are some eye care selections that I personally use or recommended for future use if you're looking to increase the charismatic look of your eyes.

Suggested to use both AM (do wear SPF protection) and PM, after patting the light-weight gel around skin areas, it is quickly absorbed into skin areas, leaving a cooling and moisturised effect on skin. Skin area's skin tone is immediately brighten up and I can feel the hydration the product provides. 

If you're looking for a fast result eye serum, be sure to add Murad's Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum into your shopping cart. 

AHC The Real Eye Cream for Face (PURE)

Honestly, I was confused when I first got this product I was like: is the for the eye or for the face hahahaha. But after I read about this eye cream, I was shook by the fact of 1 sold for every 2 seconds in Korea, that's how popular this AHC eye cream is. 

Packaged in tube form, AHC The Real Eye Cream for Face is made for BOTH eye areas and face. Yes you read this right, it is an anti-ageing solution that can be apply all around face area hence it is packaged 60ml per tube, an sufficient amount to be use for both eyes and face.

square shaped nozzle, however it's hard for the tube to stand when capped due to its design

AHC The Real Eye Cream for Face (Pure) is formulated with:

  • Vitamin B5 (Pathenol) - a soothing and moisturising properties that nourish skin to its fullest
  • Hyaluronic Acid - a deep-hydrating moisture-retaining properties that hydrates dry and sensitive skin
  • Peptide Ingredient - improves skin elasticity for a firmer and plumper look

With a slight hint of floral fragrance, this eye cream for face uses a cutting edge micro-emulsions technique that helps protects the ingredients in whole, but breaks when apply onto skin and let skin absorbed the nourishing ingredients into deeper layer of skin. 

Emulsify from gel to water-like texture, this eye cream is easily to smoothen out on skin

To be use both day and night, you can choose to use this as eye cream or as face cream:
  • Eye Treatment: lightly dab around the eye are until absorbed
  • Face Treatment: after cleansing, apply this Real Eye Cream for Face evenly on entire face and gently massage for better absorption. 

60ml of Real Eye Cream for Face is gonna last me a very, very long time!

Kiehl's Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate

For people who believes int the power of Vitamin C, this Kiehl's product is for you. For a small amount, it is effective to reduce fine lines around eye areas for a brighter looking eyes. It contains 10.5% of Pure Vitamin C and Haloxyl, hence this bottle of "citrus" is gonna improve the appearance of ageing skin as well as eliminates those dark circles that's been hiding underneath my eyes.

15ml, 10.5% of Pure Vitamin , you do the math

Packaged in an vintage, brown design bottle just like Kiehl's apothecary days, it does add some instagrammable elements by having this on the skincare table. With a pump nozzle, it oozes the creamy eye cream more than usual usage so be sure to just slightly pump it instead of a full press.

Here are the ingredients that contains in this brown bottle:

  • Bitter Orange - a complex chemical that oil is derived from the petal of Bitter Orange tree that's effective at even out skin tone. Bitter Orange is also known as Neroli or Bigarade Orange.
  • Haloxyl - This new and patented ingredients is able to increase skin's density as well as stimulating an enzyme that helps strengthen the under eye capillaries. 
  • Pure Vitamin C - also known as L-Ascorbic Acid, is a highly effective antioxidant that helps boost the radiance of skin, improves texture as well as reduce fine lines and wrinkles 

It is advice to use this eye cream in a more accurate manner because it does have burning sensation for some people as well as burn the eyes if the cream gets too close to the lash line. As for me, I liked the first note of the bitter orange smell but after awhile the fragrance turn into a steel-like aroma which I kinda wanna erase it.

The amount of one pump is too much in my opinion

With its high rating, it's not hard to see why users like Kiehl's Powerful Strength Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate as it does deliver result as promised.

Which will be your next eye cream?
