Cooling eye creams are like catnip for tired eyes. We've picked out three of the best for everyday use.
Cooling eye creams might sound like a bit of a gimmick. But when you've been staring at a computer screen all day, they're a godsend. Equally, when you're suffering from lack of sleep and have the puffiest, darkest circles imaginable, the tiny bit of pampering makes all the difference
Now a days we all love a good multi-tasking products though. So it's not enough that a formula is cooling, it has to offer something more. Which is where our top three picks come in. These hardworking formulas soothe, cool and repair the delicate skin around eyes. Plus, they'll help battle fines lines as well.
Kinvara Eye WOW! Eye Serum
Kinvara Eye Wow! Eye Serum €29.95
If you're trying to fend off fine lines and puffiness, look no further than Irish beauty favourite Kinvara. The Eye WOW! Eye Serum formula is incredibly light and absorbs quickly. The cooling feeling is helped along by the small metal roller ball applicator, which also helps to drain toxins. It is my personal go-to for day to day because it just feels so nice to wear (and delivers on results too!).
Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream
Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream €28
Perfect for morning use, this peppy gel-cream from the Pep Start collection is designed to reduce puffiness thanks to added caffeine. Not only that, but it gives a more bright-eyed effect. It's incredibly hydrating and feels particularly refreshing for tired eyes. Plus, it works really well dabbed lightly over makeup during the day to freshen it up and rehydrate skin too.
SKINOWL Eye +
SKINOWL Eye+ (£36 via cult beauty.co.uk)
Made with all natural ingredients, Skinowl is gaining traction as a cult skincare brand having been featured by the likes of Vogue. Eye+ has a jelly-esque formula, and is actually recommended to be kept in the fridge (so it's extra cooling!). This is so that the cucumber enzymes can be activated properly allowing them to improve circulation in the skin.
