The 9 Best Eye Creams for Sensitive Skin

We all know that eye cream is a necessity to prevent fine lines and puffiness, but if you have sensitive eyes, your go-to formula may be doing more harm than good. How? If your products cause, for example, watering, redness, or itchy skin, they’re also causing inflammation, which makes your eyes puffy. Our advice? Stick to hypoallergenic formulas made for sensitive skin, and make sure you apply your cream or gel no closer than half an inch from your eye (the formula will travel as it soaks in).

The under-eye area is one of if not the most sensitive areas of our skin. A lot of people skip eye creams because wrinkles and fine lines aren't a concern for them. Or they simply view it as an extra skip in their skincare routine they don't need to do. Well, at Byrdie HQ, we're all about prevention, which is why eye cream is so essential. When you're on the go and have been missing out on rest, these hardworking, gentle creams will make you look like you slept a full eight hours. Wake up with bright eyes and smooth skin. Ahead, are the nine best eye creams we stand for.
