We all feel better when our eyes are looking peppy, bright and bag-free. Sure, your trusty NARS concealer covers up most of the problems surrounding that undereye area, but when you go makeup-free there’s no hiding those bad boys. Unless, of course, you decide to target the problem head-on. Yep that’s right, today we’re talking about the magical world of eye creams.

If you’re anything like me (a self-professed lazy gal), you’ve probably spent most of your life applying any excess face moisturiser around the eye area as an easy way of getting that ‘eight hours of sleep’ look. However, it turns out that in order to target dark circles, puffy eyes and bags we need a more concentrated product. That specific area of the face is so thin and fragile that it can often require a particular formulation.

Here at Cosmetify we decided to do a little extra work at home (if you can call it that) and try out some of the most raved-about under eye creams. So, indulge in that extra glass of wine on your next night out – we’ve got those eye bags covered.
