If you're just starting to put together an anti-aging routine in your 20s, paying attention to your under-eye area can go a long way. This light, non-greasy gel-cream is specially formulated to defend against signs of premature aging around the eyes, like dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles, and it's formulated with hyaluronic acid and caffeine to cover all of the bases for youthful-looking skin in the under eye area.

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid + 1% Caffeine Eye Serum

This eye treatment cream is great for your 50s because it works to cushion and strengthen mature, dry skin with moisture. The gentle cream also helps other signs of aging including crow's feet, dryness, and skin texture. 

The Best Way to Apply Eye Cream

Once you have your puffy eye cream picked out, make sure you know how to use it.


1. Complete the Rest Of Your Routine

Our best eye cream for bags and puffiness should be the very last step in your skin care routine before you apply SPF. Use any facial cleansers, face scrubs, serums, and facial moisturizers before breaking out an under eye product.

Editor’s tip: Sometimes, there is an exception when your eye cream is thinner than your moisturizer, as the rule of thumb is the product with the lightest consistency should go first before anything heavier.


2. Use The Right Amount

Don't be excessive with eye cream for puffy under-eyes. A little goes a long way — just a dime-sized amount should be enough for the whole eye area.


3. Dot On Eye Cream

Using your ring finger, dot eye cream on both below and above your eye. Keep the product about half an inch from your lash line to avoid irritation.


4. Pat, Don't Rub

The most delicate skin on your face happens to be around your eyes. To make sure you don't play too rough with your fragile skin, use the pad of your finger to pat, not rub, the product onto your under-eye area.


5. Let It Sit

You may be done applying your eye cream, but don't move on just yet. Give your eye cream a minute or two to absorb. Immediately layering other products on top could cause eye cream to shift throughout the day so it's well worth waiting. Just take a few minutes to brush your teeth or work a styling product through your hair, then continue with the rest of your routine.
