10 times the best eye cream for your skin

Eye care is essential in your daily skincare routine. The skin around the eyes is much more fragile than normal skin, so signs of ageing are more visible here. Would you like to take your eye care to the next level but don't know which eye cream is best for you? With over sixty options in the Skins range, choosing a good eye cream can seem challenging. Our Skins Experts will be happy to advise you, helping you find an eye product that suits your skin type, wants and needs. Read on to find out what the best eye cream is for you.

What skin type do I have?

First of all, it is important to determine what kind of skin you have. There are different skin types, each with its own needs. The five main skin types are these:

  • Normal skin: This skin can be described as balanced and does not have excessive oiliness or dryness. The skin feels soft and supple and has an even complexion.
  • Dry skin: This type of skin produces less oil than usual and tends to be flaky, rough and irritated. The skin can look a bit dull and often has a tight feeling.
  • Oily skin: Oily skin produces more oil than usual and tends to look shiny. The skin may have larger pores and may therefore be particularly prone to acne.
  • Combination skin: This skin has a combination of dry and oily areas. The T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) tends to be oilier, while the cheeks and the rest of the face may be drier.
  • Sensitive skin: This type of skin is prone to irritation, redness and itching. The skin can react quickly to specific products, weather conditions and other factors.

1. Eye care for normal skin

If you have normal skin, you probably don’t have any specific problems, such as excessively oily or dry skin. Then you can focus on maintaining youthfulness. The best eye cream for your skin? Kat Burki's Nutrient C Eye Cream is an excellent option because it contains vitamin C. This is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and the cream also protects the skin from harmful environmental factors. The formula provides maximum nourishment for the delicate skin around the eyes and combats dark circles. The skin is restored and lifted, deeply nourished, soothed and hydrated.

Dr. Barbara Sturm's Super Anti-Aging Eye Cream is also great for your eye care. Valuable biomimetic lipids support the skin barrier and thus the skin's own defences. With regular use, the cream reduces signs of ageing around the eyes, which is exactly what you want to combat.

2. Eye care for dry skin

If you have dry skin, taking care of your eyes is extra important. The best eye creams for you are rich creams that provide the skin with enough hydration and protection. The Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is an excellent choice for dry skin as it is rich in nourishing ingredients such as avocado oil and shea butter. This keeps the skin around your eyes hydrated and nourished. The rich and creamy cream also forms a protective layer around the skin to prevent further dehydration.

Also check out Verso's Eye Cream Extra Nourish, a cream that nourishes the sensitive skin around the eyes both immediately and in the long term. This eye cream strengthens the skin's epidermis while ensuring healthy moisture levels. The cream leaves the eye area soft, smooth and supple, perfect if you are looking for intensive hydration.

3. Eye creams for oily skin

If you have oily skin, finding the right eye cream can be a challenge. It is important to choose a light, non-greasy formula that balances the skin. Eve Lom's Radiance Antioxidant Eye Cream is an excellent choice for oily skin because it has a lightweight formula that is quickly absorbed by the skin. The cream conditions soothes and moisturises the sensitive skin around the eyes. Neuropeptides improve cellular energy and microcirculation, making dark circles, hyperpigmentation and blemishes less visible.

Another great option for oily skin is Noble Panacea's Vibrant Eye Infusion. This cream contains patented OSMV technology, which helps hydrate the skin and reduce signs of fatigue and stress. The sachets also contain niacinamide, which counteracts sebum production. It also has a light, non-greasy texture that is quickly absorbed by the skin and leaves the skin with a rested look and supple eye contour.

4. Eye creams for combination skin

Combination skin has both oily and dry areas on the face. Therefore you may have different needs in terms of eye cream. So the best eye care for your skin type depends on the skin needs around your eyes. If you prefer not to use overly rich products, Sunday Riley's Auto Correct Eye Cream could be a very suitable eye cream for you. This eye cream contains niacinamide, which can help reduce sebum production in the oilier parts of the face. It also contains caffeine to reduce dark circles and puffiness. Extracts of watermelon and cucumber moisturise the skin without weighing it down.

NIOD's Fractionated Eye-Contour Concentrate is an ultra-concentrated eye contour bioserum that combines clinical technologies to tackle the signs of ageing under and above the eyes in one treatment. The lightweight concentrate tackles the appearance of dynamic lines, static lines, fine superficial lines under the eyes, loss of elasticity, dark circles, puffiness and uneven skin texture.

5. Eye creams for sensitive skin

If you have sensitive skin, you are probably looking for an eye cream that is not only effective, but also gentle enough not to irritate the sensitive skin around the eyes. So consider RéVive's Sensitif Eye Cream SPF30, which contains a combination of physical and chemical sun filters to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays. The cream also contains a unique complex of prebiotics to calm and soothe sensitive skin, while caffeine helps reduce puffiness and dark circles.

Another option is Noble Panacea's Restoring Eye Cream.
