Eye Spy

Your peepers are the windows to your soul, and if you don’t know this already, the eyes are usually the first to give you away if you haven’t had enough rest. Lucky for you, we sussed out some of the best eye creams in the market to make you look like a well-rested bride even if you’re just running on a whole lot of adrenalin.


A light, soft cream that comes in a roll-on tube, the SAMPAR Eye Rule is our editor’s hot favourite for getting rid of fine lines and dark under-eye circles. Pop it in the fridge and roll in on in the morning an just before bed and actually see a difference in a few weeks. The SAMPAR Eye Rule from their Age Antidote range has been formulated to combat the signs of aging by resurfacing and filling fine lines and wrinkles in an instant. On top of that, this nifty little saviour reduces dark circles and puffy eyes, moisturises, and repairs skin in depth.

Chanel Précision Sublimage Eye Essential Regenerating Eye Cream

This potion in a pot makes you look like you’ve had eight hours of sleep when all you’ve had the night before was a major all-nighter stressing over details of your wedding. While whether or not it fights wrinkles still remains a mystery, the cream hydrates and reflects light, making skin look instantly radiant.

Strivectin SD by Klein-Becker

Funnily enough, this product was originally designed to repair stretch marks, but the staff at Klein-Becker later discovered that this product was effective in reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. This cream has been shown to stimulate collagen synthesis, reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks and wrinkles, and restore elasticity. It also helps improve the appearance of age spots and dark circles under the eyes. Two uses in one purchase? We couldn’t complain!

Avon ANEW Clinical Eye Lift

Apparently, the Avon ANEW Clinical Eye Lift is Avon’s best-selling skincare product in the UK, with one sold on average every 44 seconds and over a million British women swear by it. It is a rich eye cream and a light gel in one jar. You apply the cream under the eyes and the gel to the lids and around the eye. You can also use the gel under the cream to address puffiness.

Shiseido White Lucent Eye Brightening Treatment

Specially developed with Shiseido’s own Spot Deacti Complex, the Shiseido White Lucent Eye Brightening Treatment is a lightweight cream that addresses both melanin formation and poor local microcirculation, two major causes of dark circles.

Dr Hauschka Daily Revitalizing Eye Cream

If you don’t have major eye concerns yet, but you’re also sensible enough to know that prevention is better than cure, this cream is for you. It’s easily absorbed, smells delicious and makes an ideal make-up base.
