I've been using Aveda's Tourmaline Charged Eye Cream ($32) on-and-off for several years; and recently, our love affair is back on, and here's why. The antioxidant-laden eye cream, which is more like a soft, easy-to-spread gel emulsion, never pills up on you or feels greasy. It simply just sinks right into the skin, creating a subtle luminosity under the eyes, which thanks to its smooth texture, wears nicely under concealer or foundation.
Whenever a beauty product costs more than $20, I think twice before making the purchase, and at $32, this eye cream isn't cheap, but since it tends to last me well over six months, I have no qualms about forking over my cash at the register. While Aveda claims this product reduces puffiness, I can't say I've noticed a big difference, and while the cream doesn't fade my dark circles, it does create a light-reflecting glow around the eyes. If you're looking for a lightly moisturizing way to perk up tired eyes, you might just want to eye this cream up.
