Eye Cream: The Ultimate Top 3 (July 2012)

1. La Mer The Eye Balm Intense  $165 (0.5oz)

Neiman Marcus Beauty Award Finalist 2012. Erases puffiness, hydrates without being too greasy, gentle enough for sensitive skin

2. Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado  $28.50 (0.5oz)

Thick and creamy, it smells and feels like an avocado milkshake! Full of avocado, beta carotene and shea butter.

3. Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Eyes  $48.88 (0.5oz)

Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough 2011. Orchid scented rich eye cream promises to stimulate collagen and elastin growth, hydrates with hyaluronic acid, fights free-radicals and protects from sun damages.

The July best-sellers have shifted into lighter moisturizers and eye creams for the summer.

La Mer Intense stays as our number one eye cream of the month as loyal fans continue to stick to their favorite. This product moisturizes well but has mediocre results for fine lines.

Second place falls into a tie with Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado and Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24.

I absolutely love Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. I remember when it was first released years ago. It became an instant hit among the young crowd, including myself. The nourishing, light green eye creme has a rich, creamy consistency reminding me of a thick avocado smoothie! It soothes the eye area without being too greasy. This product suits younger skin and does not interfere with eye makeup.

Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 suits those who are starting to notice fine lines around their eyes. It contains hyaluronic acid to retain moisture, while having hydroxyproline to boost collagen growth. This will be a wise first anti-aging investment.
