The Best Eye Cream for Your Skin
Best for Dry Skin
Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream
This rich but absorbent formula “never feels tacky” and “creates a smooth surface for makeup,” according to testers. The key? Hyaluronic acid, which traps moisture in skin.

Best for Brightening
Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream
Skin-tightening botanicals and brightening ginseng pack a one-two punch against under-eye bags and rings. Testers liked the hint of iridescence that “masks darkness.”

Best for Sensitive Skin
Dermalogica UltraSmoothing Eye Serum
Does your skin react to everything? This fluid is free of artificial colors and fragrances and contains calming oat extracts. Peptides iron out fine lines in four to six weeks. “Finally, something that doesn’t sting!” said a tester.

Best for Mature Skin
Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate
Exotic botanicals, like Pueraria lobata root, are what make this cream so potent. While it may take weeks to smooth crow’s-feet, sleep-deprived testers swore their eyes looked more well-rested on the spot.
To buy: $83, clarins.com.
M-61 Hydraboost Eye
It only sounds like rocket science. Simply put: The trifecta of high-tech peptides, naturally soothing tamarind, and brightening soy covers all your eyes’ needs.
