Eye cream picks for all budgets

Our eyes are often referred to as the 'windows to the soul'. I'm a little bit obsessed with keeping my 'windows' looking fresh and youthful, and love a good eye cream.

As the skin around your eyes is much thinner than anywhere else on your body, normal moisturisers are too heavy for this area. Here are my top eye cream picks, whatever your budget.


Aldi Lacura wrinkle stop (not pictured) – under £5
This is a really light, creamy eye cream that's absorbed easily. The packaging makes claims regarding wrinkle reduction, and although I saw small results, this is probably more suited to those who just need a good hydrator. Full review here.

Mid price

Green People scent free eye cream - £9.50
This is perfect for anyone with sensitive skins. It's creamy, soft and a little goes a long way. It's super hydrating and I like to use it at night time to give it time to sink in.

Dr Renaud Apple anti-tiredness eye care - £25
A lighter, gel texture eye cream, this really hydrates and helps eyes look a little bit more awake! I love to use it in the mornings for a refreshed eye feeling. Perfect for the summer, or if you prefer something less heavy in texture.

High end

Creme de la Mer the eye concentrate - £125
The most expensive eye cream I've ever tried, this really feels like luxury in a jar. It hydrates, and helps deal with dark circles, as well as offering anti-ageing properties. I've only tried a small sample of it, but loved it, using it at night to make the most of it's restorative properties. It's somewhere between a gel and a cream in texture. Full review here.

What's your favourite eye cream?


  1. My favourite eye cream is Boots Vitamin E! It's super hydrating and only costs about £2.70!

    Saying that, if someone offered to buy the CDLM one for me, I'm sure my arm could be twisted into giving it a go ;)

  2. I use Green People, it's the only one I like and the price is great :)

  3. So typical that I'm instantly 'needing' the creme de la mer one!! I gravitate towards anything that promises miracles :)



    1. he he, I'm like that too. These are all really good ones, so take your pick! x

  4. I've never used an eye cream I'm not even sure what an eye cream could be used for!? Is that bad of me? Thanks to this post i'm going to have to look into it lol.xx

    1. They're like moisturisers, but for your eye area. The skin under your eyes is much thinner than the rest of your face so using a specific eye cream stops the area being overloaded which can lead to puffiness x

  5. I love the creme de la mer one! I also love Elemis absolute eye serum x

  6. Big green people fan, perfect for sensitive skin, but I'd love to give Dr Renaud a go, anti-tiredness sounds perfect! xx

  7. The creme de la mer is lovely, but at that price, it has to be! I have been using the elemental herbology one recently and it is really good. Eyeslix which you can buy in boots for about £20 is also really high quality. Gives better results than many I have tried for 3 or 4 times the price. x

    1. I will have to check out Eyeslix - i've heard really good things about it x

  8. Hi! You've got a great blog here and I'm your follower. I'd love it so much if you could follow me back via GFC and Bloglovin :) it'd be great to keep in touch!


  9. I'd love to try the Dr Renaud apple eye cream. Bet it smells lovely! I am using the Origins GinZing eye cream and I really like that one x

    1. It has a very subtle scent of apples, but nothing too potent! x

  10. The Green People eye cream sounds lovely :) The Body Shop do a nice Vitamin E one but it's more for hydration I think? xx

  11. I love the Green People firming eye gel! Like the sound of the sensitive eye cream though! x

  12. I've never used an eye cream, but I really want to invest in one as people have been blogging about them a lot recently on my Bloglovin' feed
