Eye Cream/Serum Recommendation For 24 Year Old

I'm looking for recommendations for an eye cream/serum that hydrates (the area around my eyes get really dry and my moisturizers doesn't do much to help) and help minimizes dark circles (I believe mine are due to stress and other stuff, and partially due to genetics). Ideally, I would also like the eye cream to work well underneath my makeup (if I need to apply it in the morning) and to spend less than $50, but am willing to spend more if it is worth it. Wrinkles, puffiness and lines are not a major concern at the moment.


Here's some background information. I am in my early 20s, with sensitive skin (allergic to soy) and combination skin (oily in t-zone area). I generally wear light makeup (powder or bb cream depending on the season), use mascara (not waterproof) and wash my face twice a day with a mild cleanser. I don't believe my eye makeup remover contributes to the dryness as it's pretty mild and I only recently switched from another brand.


I have tried a few eye creams with unsatisfying results. I followed the directions of each products exactly and nothing came from it after weeks of continuous use. All of the products below have been recommended by a beauty associate, all of which I have sampled/purchased. I have tried:


a) Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream - somewhat hydrating (would like it to be a bit more hydrating) but didn't do anything else it has made claims to


b) Sephora Age Defy Eye Cream - very hydrating, but then it started becoming too greasy with just a minimal amount and I noticed waxy flakes in the morning just from 1 week of use


c) Fresh Lotus Eye Gel - started off ok but then it went down hill. It left the area around my eyes stinging and red. It's the second time that it's happened to me with the Fresh brand, so I suspect I am sensitive to something in their products


d) Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Eye Treatment - recently picked this up and am still undergoing a trial period but I am starting to experience some slight stinging of the skin underneath my eyes


I would love to hear what people have to recommend. Thanks in advance for your help.

Try Kiehl's eye creams. They have a few varieties.You can just ask the employees there what best fits your needs and they'll help you! Smiley Happy

Thanks for the suggestion, I will give that a try the next time I am near a Kiehl's store.

I'm 24 years old with dry undereye areas and dark circles. I like using Kiehl's Avocodo Treatment during the daytime and the Josie Maran Infinity Cream at night. The Josie Maran one is so popular for multi-use, but I like to use it under my eyes the most. I would use it sparingly because a little goes a long way. I would try getting a sample if you can unless your Sephora doesn't have it in stock like my closest Sephora. I hope this helps and good luck.

Multi-use product sounds beneficial, just in case it doesn't quite work out as an eye product.

I have heard that Kiehl's Avocodo treatment can be a bit too greasy for some users, so hopefully that doesn't happen.

Hi Dream24,


I would recommend giving Tarte's Maracuja eye cream.It moisturizes, fades dark circles, and has a lovely lightweight consistency that is very hydrating.


Whimsically yours,

Hi Janine, thanks for the suggestion, sounds like something that would address my concerns. Hopefully this works out after a trial period.

Re: Eye Cream/Serum Recommendation For 24 Year Old

As a note, the maracuja cream works really well underneath Tarte's maracuja creaseless concealer if you need to have an immediate result for the day, but contain maracuja oil (obviously Smiley Tongue ) which contains a large amount of vitamin C which brightens and evens skin tone marvelously Smiley Very Happy Good luck!

Thanks for the helpful note MoreGun89 Smiley Happy I might give this a try during those really, really bad days
