When it comes to eye creams, I’m at a loss for what to look for. For a long time, they were never on my radar at all. I think the number one complaint people have with their eye area is dark circles, but a topical product is pretty dang limited in what it can do to fix those. A lot of eye products are also targeted towards anti-aging: reducing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing puffiness and bags, etc. I’m not too concerned about focused anti-aging on my undereye area just yet, so what’s left? What am I treating exactly?
The conclusion I came to is that I just need something moisturizing enough to keep the skin around my eyes plumped and hydrated, yet light enough to not cause problems like milia in the delicate undereye skin. I decided upon the Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream as a starting point because it gets very well reviewed and it’s almost criminally cheap (something highly unusual when discussing eye creams).
