You may be wondering; do I need a specialist eye cream for my skin care routine and what’s the best eye cream for dark circles? We always recommend having an essential eye cream in your collection to target specific concerns around the eyes. Plus, skin around your eyes is commonly thinner and where dark circles, puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles appear.

The skin around the eye is very delicate and needs extra attention in the form of an eye cream. We call our eyes ‘the windows to our soul’ and that is commonly because our eyes are the first areas where expressions are shown and reflect any new lifestyle changes, the good and the bad. Our skin around our eyes drinks up any kind of moisture we add, as it has few oil glands and tends to be the driest area the quickest – they’re always thirsty!

Common eye concerns we’ve been asked about are puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles. Some of these are genetic but what an eye cream can give you is a helping hand. Other factors like an unhealthy lifestyle and lack of sleep can enhance any concerns too.

The best TEMPLESPA eye creams for wrinkles, dark circles and general anti-ageing results are our EYE TRUFFLE 24-Hour Eye Rejuvenation and WINDOWS OF THE SOUL Eye Treatment Gel-Cream, along with a few of our top treatments which we’ll share with you.

EYE TRUFFLE 24-Hour Eye Rejuvenation is a great under eye cream for helping dark circles and wrinkles because it’s all in the ingredients. Think Green Microalgae to improve the appearance of dark circles and stimulate collagen and elastin production! Black Summer Truffles, a natural antioxidant to aid the collagen building process and improve water retention, which in turn = brighter, firmer and smoother skin. Our Eye Regenerator Complex from alfalfa and white lupin ingredients reduce puffiness and boosts skin tone and firmness. Combined with other skin-loving ingredients, EYE TRUFFLE is beautiful luxury eye cream for dark circles and wrinkles.

For adding serious hydration and helping to depuff eyes and dark circles, you won’t go far wrong with WINDOWS OF THE SOUL Eye Treatment Gel-Cream. Our super lightweight eye treatment gel-cream is one of our best eye creams for dark circles as our ingredients Vitamin E, Cucumber, Echinacea, Eyebright and Edelweiss soothe, nourish and brighten the area. 

Our eyes can also do with an instant boost from EYE SURVIVE, our Multiple Effect Serum-Complex Treatment Eye Mask. We save these for special occasions or add a super boost to tired or dull eyes! Apply the cool patches to clean, dry skin and let the ingredients do all the work…. The eye area is visibly firmer, brighter from dark circles and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles reduced.

If puffiness and tiredness are concerns for your eyes, the EYE THERAPIST Eye Massagers are perfect additions to your under-eye cream. The cool metal massage heads are ideal for a lymphatic drainage massage or use them to help your eye cream absorb. 

Applying an eye cream requires a special technique, as it is thin and delicate a vigorous massage may inflame and irritate the area. So we recommend a small amount (a little goes a long way, so aim for a pea-size!) onto your ring finger, then lightly tap under the eye and above to the brow bone! An eye cream would come before your moisturiser and after a serum.

We hope you’ve found a new eye cream or technique to try and combat dark circles! Make sure you’re following us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest news, tips and more.
