I’m using two eye creams right now. I’m using Bakel Cool Eyes in the mornings and Dr Brandt Lineless Eye Cream in the evenings. I think that everyone needs to start using some form of eye cream once they hit their early twenties. At first something gentle and hydrating is probably fine, but once you’ve hit my age you need something with a bit more oomph.
Bakel is a brand that I really like. It’s full of concentrated ingredients and usually doesn’t have more than half a dozen items on the ingredients list. I like knowing that the product I’m using isn’t mostly fillers with a tiny proportion of active ingredients. Cool Eyes is applied via a roller ball system that is really cooling and calming for eyes in the mornings. It’s great for draining away the toxins that build up and cause our puffiness and dark circles. I use half a pump for each eye. You’ll feel instantly lifted and tightened.
In the evenings I’ve been using an old favourite of mine, Dr Brandt Lineless Eye Cream. I remember when this was first launched in the UK. I liked it back then and I still like it now. It’s one of those tried and tested products that I know will work. It’s packed with vitamins C and E to help reduce my lines and wrinkles. Things like green tea for protecting against free radicals helps to make sure the entire eye area is smooth and contoured. Half a pump for both eyes is plenty.
