Posted Monday October 1, 2012 8:41 AM GMT
Whether you’re looking to prevent fine lines and wrinkles or turn back the clock on the aging process, it’s never too early or too late to begin using an eye cream; but don't take our word for it.
We talked to the Lead Esthetician at the Guerlain Spa in the Waldorf Astoria, Maria Dolanescu, who believes this particular product is a must-have for every gal’s beauty arsenal. She also dished a useful tip saying, “You should use a product for six months to a year to really see its results. However, after a year and a half of using any product, you should switch because your skin becomes immune to its benefits.”
While there are a slew of products that claim to combat fine lines, puffiness and wrinkles, there are six we swear by. All are effective and results-driven, proving you don’t have to go under the knife to achieve healthy, more youthful looking skin.
Check them out:
Guerlain Abeille Royale Up-Lifting Eye Care, $120: A personal favorite of Miss Dolanescu herself, this age-defying formula is derived from beneficial bee products that work to visibly reduce the signs of aging and fatigue. It creates an immediate firming effect after just one application and helps to diminish stubborn dark circles to create a more youthful appearance.
Chanel Ultra Correction Lift Total Eye Lift, $100: Tensin, a key protein found in youthful skin, weakens as we age. However, this product contains Elemi PFA, an ingredient used to restore tensin, and in turn improve skin’s overall firmness and silky-smooth appearance.
Laura Mercier Tone Perfecting Eye Gel Crème, $60 Amazingly effective and affordable, this protective eye gel crème fights to reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles to lend skin with a radiant, more healthy looking glow!
WHITE OUT+ Daily Under Eye Care, $75: Created to target under-eye problem areas, this quick-absorbing product majorly-minimizes under-eye circles and puffiness, improves skin’s resilience to harmful environmental detriments and pumps the area full of hydration. Suitable for all skin types, WHITE OUT+ is perfect for the gal looking to extend her overall youthful appearance!
Cle de Peau Beaute Eye Contour Balm, $135: Formulated with Retinol, which guards against fine lines and wrinkles, and Bupleurum Extract, a collagen-boosting ingredient, this velvet-like balm works to fully-hydrate your under-eye area, which in turn visibly improves the skin’s overall texture. It also encourages this area to strengthen itself against any further detriments.
Yves Saint Laurent Temps Majeur Eye Cream, $135: Everything this legendary brand creates turns to gold, and their eye cream is no exception. Full of high-performing ingredients, this product immediately works to reduce the signs of aging faster than you can say the name itself.
