8 Holy Grail Eye Creams, According To Reddit

Luxury, drugstore, and even DIY solutions for all your eye problems.

Our eyes do so much for us. Not only do we use them to, you know, see and stuff, but they're also responsible for flirty and/or awkward winks, necessary eye-rolls, shady side-eye, and one of the most popular GIFs of 2017. The least we can do is pay them back with a little R&R. Finding the perfect eye can be difficult, but don't fret, here's a little list that can help you the eyedeal product for you (I'm so sorry bye). These holy grail eye products will work wonders, according to Reddit.

1. If you have sensitive skin, Tarte's Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment will feel wonderful around your eyes.

Sephora

"This is the first eye cream I've tried that doesn't burn my eyes, actually moisturizes, and feels like it's doing something. It's probably placebo, but either way, I dig it. Also, the tiny jar has lasted ages." —jjdactyl

Get it form Sephora for $38.

2. Quench your under eye's thirst with Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. It's a great product for daily hydration.

3. Kate Somerville's Age Arrest will make you feel and look alive.

"I feel like a bougie rockstar when I use this, even when it's from a sample jar because I'm ballin' on a budget. I apply my regular moisturizer and routine around my eyes as well, but I swear that this eye cream is an extra boost in looking alive." —auroralovegoodGet it from Sephora for $75.

"I find that it is exceptionally moisturizing, and visibly brightens my eye area. I like using this in the morning when I didn't get enough sleep. In other words, I use this every day." —auroralovegood

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

5. La Mer's The Eye Concentrate is pricey AF, but once you try it, you'll want to drop all your money and never look back.

cremedelamer.com, sephora.com

"This is possibly the most expensive product I've ever bought, but one tub lasts about six months with twice daily use. In my opinion, it is totally worth the money. My eyes look brighter, younger, and I actually look like I get enough sleep and drink enough water! When I use this, I don't have to use under eye concealer!

This is a total splurge item for me and I don't use it every day, just when I think my eyes could use a little help! I kind of wish I had never sampled this product so I wouldn't know what I miss out on!" —MSengupta02

Get it from Sephora for $205.

6. If you're one of those people who believes things when they see them, then Farmacy's Eye Dew with Echinacea GreenEnvy is for you. It delivers results quickly.

farmacybeauty.com, sephora.com

"I've never had such an immediate response to any moisturizing product. After one night of using this, the area around my eyes was significantly firmer and looked better. While I'm only 20, it still showed improvement. Also, the feeling of this product is not as heavy as other creams tend to be. I sincerely loved it." —mugglesh0pe

Get it from Sephora for $38.

7. Or try a combo of Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Moisturizer and Avon's ThermaFirm Face Lifting cream if you feel like your eyes need a little pick-me-up.

olay.com, avon.com

"Nothing that worked on my face, worked on my eyes, and they were beginning to look older than the rest of my face. I had already been using Olay for some time with the essential oils, and I was seeing OK results. However, recently I noticed a big crease over my right eye, from inner eyelid up, and out over top of eye. I happened to have some of the Avon cream and decided to combine them as someone online said the Thermafirm helped around their eyes. Within three days, I noticed the crease had lessened. After a week, the big crease over my right eye has improved enough that I don't consider it as making me look older anymore. I will keep using this regimen until something else happens." —faulkwood

Get the Olay cream from Ulta for $24.99

Get the Avon cream from Avon for $28.

8. And if you're the kind of person who prefers all-natural ingredients, then a mix of shea oil, sweet almond oil, lavender oil, and frankincense oil makes for a great DIY eye serum.

amazon.com, amazon.com

"I combine the ingredients in a rollerball and use it under my eyes day and night. Sweet almond is a very lightweight carrier oil, as is shea. I use them both because I’m extra and I really like how ultra moisturizing the shea is. Lavender for puffiness, and frankincense for a whole mess of things. I use a tiny bit underneath my concealer in the morning, and it keeps the area hydrated so makeup lays nicely. I slather it on at night before my night moisturizer. I have seen a big difference in hydration and fine lines. Plus, I’m comfortable with the ingredients because I made it myself." —ladyabercrombie

Get shea oil from Amazon for $10.31.

Get sweet almond oil from Amazon for $11.99.

Get lavender oil from Amazon for $9.95.

Get frankincense oil from Amazon for $17.95.
