In the midst of winter, keeping your skincare up to date to tackle the harsh weather can seem like a chore. With near-freezing temperatures outside, hot central heating and extra layers of makeup for Christmas parties, your skin is going through the works. The skin around your eyes is especially sensitive at this time of year, and yet a lot of eye creams just don’t live up to expectation. So scrub off last night’s mascara and read on for some tried and tested eye products to help push the reset button on sore under eyes and eyelids.
Liz Earle is a great all-round skincare brand for a majority of skin types. With many other favourites from this range, one of the products which stands out is the Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion. This product works best as an impromptu mask – simply soak two cotton pads and place over dry and tired eyes. It can also be used as a thorough yet gentle eye makeup remover, removing all traces of even waterproof mascara. Better yet, it can be kept in the fridge for an even more soothing experience.
Bioderma are probably best known for their cleansing water, and with the brand not yet being readily available in the UK, many beauty addicts miss out on their other incredible products. Sensibio Eye Contour Gel is a wonderful light-weight eye cream which is easily absorbed, and perfect for wearing under makeup. Despite its thin consistency, it packs a punch when it comes to soothing the skin. Cooling yet moisturising, this product is a must-have for anyone with dry and irritated eyes.
Another tried-and-tested sensitive skin staple; Weleda’s Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion isn’t just for eyes. Although it is great at removing eye makeup, this product can be used all over the face to gently cleanse the skin. Without leaving a greasy residue, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight as many other cleansers can. This cleansing lotion is also great for travelling, and if used with cotton wool pads, you can get away without using water to make it even more convenient.
