Splurge vs. steal: Eye creams

Most anti-aging eye creams make promises of reducing wrinkles and crow’s feet, but which ones really deliver? We reviewed a variety of eye creams, ranging in price from a couple of dollars to a couple of hundred bucks. Here are some of our favorites.

Eye cream

RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream

Steal: This affordable eye cream can help visibly reduce wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as dark circles and puffiness. Its oil-free, moisturizing formula works well under makeup or alone. RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream is clinically proven to reduce the signs of aging around your eyes, plus its essential mineral complex hydrates and nourishes — leaving your skin feeling and looking younger. You can find this cheap eye cream at and many retail stores for about $20.

Garnier Nutritioniste Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream

Steal: With ingredients such as rice protein and argan extract, the anti-wrinkle eye cream effectively helps lift crow’s feet and reduce fine lines around the eyes while firming, smoothing and softening skin. The cream is extremely gentle and non-greasy. Just $15 at most drugstores, Garnier Nutritioniste Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream is definitely a beauty bargain. We also found it on for just $3 plus $3 shipping.

Chanel Ultra Correction Lift

Splurge: Don’t go under the knife for an eye lift without trying some creams and other products first. Chanel’s anti-aging eye cream — Ultra Correction Lift — reduces eye puffiness almost instantly, but it also tightens and firms your skin using Elemi PFA. It restores tensin — a protein naturally found in the skin and the key to retaining firmness. This eye cream is $100 a jar and worth every cent.

Kate Somerville Line Release Under Eye Repair Cream

Splurge: At $125 for a 0.5 ounce pump, this eye cream doesn’t come cheap. However, the results are undeniable. Kate Somerville Line Release Under Eye Repair Cream makes concealer nearly obsolete as you’ll immediately see a reduction in expression lines and dark circles. This cream hydrates, firms and lifts the skin around your eyes to make your skin look and feel absolutely beautiful.
