How to apply eye cream

Apply eye cream in three easy steps

Not sure how to apply eye cream? Here’s our easy three-step guide to help you get the most out of your eye creams.

  1. Dispense a small amount of eye cream (the size of a pea) onto the back of your hand.
  2. Using your ring finger, gently apply to the eye contour area in an upward and circular motion.
  3. Smooth and blend until the eye cream has soaked into the skin. Eyes should feel cool, soothed, and hydrated.

When you’re applying eye cream, use a light touch. Take care to not get too close to your lash line and in the inner corners of your eyes. You can also take a look at our beauty school video to see a tutorial on applying eye cream using Clarins’ expert application methods to get the best results.

Why use eye cream?

The skin around your eyes is thinner, and therefore needs extra care and nourishment. At Clarins, we believe in caring for your eye area at every stage of your life with effective and revitalising creams. To keep the skin around your eyes supple, soft and bright, applying eye cream every day is a must.

Do eye creams work?

Yes! Eye creams are a targeted treatment to help with a variety of trouble areas, from puffiness and sagging, to dark under eye circles and fine lines. Cooling, soothing, and smoothing eye creams help to hydrate and brighten skin for a more youthful-looking appearance.

What is the best eye cream for wrinkles?

Now you know how and why to apply your eye cream, it’s time to decide which is the best eye cream for you. Are you looking to minimise fine lines or deeper wrinkles? We have a range of eye creams on offer to target wrinkles for all skin types.
Our number one recommendation would be Double Serum Eye! This ultra luxurious cream-gel is formulated with 96% natural ingredients, including Wild Chervil, to give you nourished skin in just 7 days. Not only does Double Serum hydrate the eyes, it firms and brightens too, for an everyday radiant glow!
Our Total Eye Lift cream is infused with Cassie Wax and Harungana Extract for the ultimate long term lifting action, day after day. Not only does it reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it nourishes the entire eye area for radiant, firmer skin.
However if you’re looking to target signs of ageing, our Total Eye Revive will diminish any dark circles and fine lines. The cream-gel texture, alongside the cryo-metallic tip, instantly minimises fatigue and visibly smooths wrinkles.
