Eye Cream: The Ultimate Top 3 (June 2012)

La Mer Intense   $165 (0.5oz)

Cle de Peau Beaute Intensive Eye Contour   $250 (0.5oz)

2012 CEW Beauty Insider’s Choice Award Finalist

Shiseido Future Solutions   $130 (0.5oz)

2011 CEW Beauty Insider’s Choice Award Winner

Honestly, I have only tried two out of the top three.

As an avid La Mer fan, it is ironic that I don’t crave La Mer eye creams.  Having tried both La Mer Intense and La Mer Concentrate, I still go back to my Shiseido Future Solutions.  The silver wand that La Mer eye cream provides is pretty, but I don’t see how that will enhance absorption.  The best way to apply eye cream is to dab below your eye, on your eyelid, and at the corner near your temple.  Then, use your ring fingers to gently massage your eye area in a circular motion for a few times.  Heat from your fingertips will enhance absorption.  As always, you should apply toner and serum (if any) before applying your eye cream.

Shiseido Future Solutions is the best eye cream product in my opinion. It is the 2011 CEW Beauty Insider’s Choice Winner. I like its rich consistency and subtle, flowery fragrance.  I have yet to try Cle de Peau Beaute Intensive Eye Contour. Lots of people rave about this product but the steep price tag is scaring me. I will try it one day! Cle de Peau Beaute is often referred to as the “top-of-the-line” of Shiseido cosmetics.   Have you tried this brand before?  Enlighten us, please.  Is it really worth it?
