I cannot live without eye cream. I cannot live without sunscreen and serums either. But back to eye creams. The skin around our eyes is very thin and sensitive, and usually gives out the first signs of lines. I also have a very bad habit of rubbing my eyes so it’s no surprise that I have fine lines around my eyes. I am 38 this year, and I can honestly say that my eyes don’t look crepey because of years of care. I started applying eye cream in my 20s and I haven’t stopped since. I notice that my eyes are getting drier as I age, so instead of the gel based eye care that I used to use, I need something creamier.
I change out my eye creams every now and then, and after using up all my eye creams, I decided to purchase 2 different ones. I bought the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream for day use. It keeps my eyes comfortable without making my makeup move around. If the eye cream is too creamy, I find that concealers tend to crease and look patchy. It has a light gel like texture which gets absorbed rather quickly.
At night, I use the Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming Eye Cream. It is creamier and more balm-like (as you can see in the picture below). I apply a pea sized amount onto both my eyes and I like that it remains a little creamy after applying. It doesn’t absorb completely, but I like that for night time. Maybe I use a little too much LOL! I bought these 2 eye creams about a month ago, and I really like them.
What eye cream are you using at the moment? I get quite adventurous with eye creams because I always want to try new things and I get bored easily. I’m quite curious about the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Balm, which I think is really rich for night time. It’s a texture that I really enjoy because my eyes get especially dry (sometimes itchy!) at night. Have you tried that before? I can’t remember how much I paid for them but both are a little more than RM200.
