Yes, You Need an Eye Cream

December 21, 2019


I hopped on my Instagram stories this morning to talk about eye cream because I have been noticing lots of women in my age cohort of say 34-45, with very dry under eye skin, crepe-y-ness and buckling and wrinkles. Developing crow's feet and loss of elasticity and moisture are all normal parts of aging, and hormones do not help! So if you're in my age group and don't have a good eye cream or two that you're using morning and night, here are my recommendations. You can also watch my Instagram stories here, and I'll be sure to save it as a highlight for future reference.

Paula's Choice is my go-to brand for most skin care. Full disclosure, I do work for them as a brand rep for the Spokane market, but I have not been compensated for this post, nor asked to do it. :) I LOVE Paula's Choice so when the chance to rep them came up, I jumped at it.

I used to work for Chanel, so I used Chanel skin care and I love their eye creams, too (more on that below) but the price point was prohibitive for me once I was no longer getting it for free. So finding Paula's Choice was a lifesaver.


If you're brand new to using an eye cream (and preferably under 35) then the Paula's Choice Omega+ Complex Eye Cream is perfect for you. It's nourishing, protective and will keep your skin youthful and healthy. If you're over 35, you can start here too, but progress to something with more punch in the anti-aging department after you go through your first bottle.

The Paula's Choice Ceramide-Enriched Firming Eye Cream is the best eye cream I have ever seen and used in my life! I have used a lot of fancy eye creams, including this sticker shock of a stunner from La Prairie AND its accompanying serum, and they're not worth the price by any stretch of the imagination. The Ceramide Eye Cream from Paula's Choice has a comprehensive list of anti-aging, skin-perfecting ingredients, including

  • Vitamin C for brightness
  • Retinol to smooth and accelerate skin cell turnover
  • Peptides to boost firmness and youthfulness of cells
  • Collagen to increase elasticity and hold everything together 

It's a true powerhouse and worth way more than $48! Perfect to use at night, and I prefer to use the Anti-Aging Eye Gel by day.

The Paula's Choice Anti-Aging Eye Gel will wow you with its instant lifting and firming properties. Skin is visibly de-puffed and lifted after applying. I use this during the day because why have visible lifting and firming at night? It wears well under makeup thanks to the lightweight gel texture. I prefer the Ceramide at night as its thicker and more powerful.


If luxury is your game, then Chanel is the way to go. The Sublimage Regeneration Eye Cream is truly phenomenal. It contains Vanilla Planifolia extract developed by Chanel technology to keep skin youthful and perfect. Plus it comes with a gorgeous black and gold applicator. You only need the size of a grain of rice with Chanel eye creams, so despite the price tag, a jar should last you for 6-8 months with proper application. Not as expensive when you think of it that way! ;)

I also LOVE the Le Lift eye cream. It is the result of 12 years of research! Scientists produced an ingredient from the edulis morning glory plant to lift, firm and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It's pretty great!

Finally, the Le Lift Eye Concentrate is a lifting and firming, de-puffing powerhouse for daytime (quite similar to the Paula's Choice Eye Gel). But the beauty of Chanel is chic packaging that looks at once daring and understated on any vanity or within your medicine cabinet. Sometimes a little touch of luxury and beautiful design like that can really add to your day, can't it?
