Which eye product is best for me?
This has to be one of our most common questions, along with, do I really need an eye cream?
Eye creams are formulated with a lighter consistency for the delicate eye area. This skin around the eyes is as thin as an eggshell. If you apply your regular moisturiser here, as these are formulated thicker, you will create too much puffiness within the skin. To select the right eye cream for you should consider your concerns. Use our quick guide to help you select.
