Tired eyes! Do I ever have them and do I ever know a little something about this subject! As was stumbling across my skincare stash for a cherished eye cream on a recent morning, I realized that I haven’t ever written about the best eye creams for tired eyes.
Last year I wrote about the best eye creams for maturing eyelids, but never about tired eyes. Like so many of us, I am always looking at a computer screen, a phone screen and not sleeping as many hours as I should. The result? Tired, bleary eyes in the morning! Thankfully there are some great skincare options out there for those of us in the same boat. Good skincare is worth it and then some, especially when it comes to soothing eye products.
Here’s my criteria when it comes to good eye creams that will bring relief to my eyes right after I wake up: they must be soothing, lightweight, sink in easily, and work fast! Being in a tube with a cooling applicator tip is a bonus! I’ve picked out six that I use on a regular basis, along with one that’s a clear cut winner about the rest. Caffeine is a typical ingredient in soothing eye creams – some on this list do not contain it, FYI.
Right in the middle of typing up this post, I got up and applied a fresh, soothing layer of this very same gel. It contains caffeine and licorice extract that help reduce eye puffiness, and happens to have a cooling metal applicator tip. Very handy and soothing!
It must be the probiotics in this eye cream that make it work so well. I love to apply this one after a workout for cooling down my skin. You see how the jar is a bit beaten up? It’s been going with me wherever I go in my purse!
