8 Of The Best Eye Creams For Puffy Eyes
Do you suffer from chronic puffy eyes? Us too! This common under eye condition is the result of fluid retention which can commonly be triggered by late nights, excess salt and one too many wines.
And while we certainly aren't advocating eliminating any of those indulgences, we can, however, assist with combating any telltale signs.
Using a unique blend of skin soothers and stimulators, de-puffing eye creams deliver the appearance of an eight-hour sleep by using ingredients such as caffeine, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid.
To help you sort through the pretty bottles with not-so-useful formulas and the true heavyweights, these are the eight eye creams we recommend for combatting under-eye bags and puffiness.
#1 Kiehl’s Eye Alert
You know cucumbers are king when it comes to combatting swelling, and this goodie is enriched with not only cucumber, but alfalfa extracts too, to help cool the eye area, reducing puffiness as a result. But that’s not all! A blend of caffeine and vitamin E also acts like a boost of energy to fight off puffiness and fatigue while moisturising the under-eye area.
