The skin around the eyes is vulnerable to wrinkles, as it is five to 10 times thinner than skin on the rest of the face. Apply a gel or cream around the eye area in the morning and evening to prevent fine lines, puffiness and dark under-eye circles. Apivita Age Management Eye Cream ($300/ 15ml) A gentle gel that can be used both day and night. Moisturises without feeling oily. Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado ($230/ 14g) The rich cream is a bit heavy, but it's ideal for winter. Gently massage it into skin with a fingertip. Smooths dry skin and can be used under makeup. Aveda Tourmaline Charged Eye Creme ($330/ 15ml) Feels oily when first applied, but when massaged into skin, it blends in well. Has a soothing scent of plant oils, but doesn't adequately moisturise dry skin. Benefit Eyecon ($270/ 14g) The lightweight formula absorbs quickly into skin. Gentle enough to soothe tired eyes, but not moisturising enough for dry skin - it's better for summer. Lancome Blanc Expert Mela-NO Cx Advanced Whitening Anti-Dark Circles Eye Treatment ($380/ 15ml) The whitening effect isn't immediately noticeable, but it helps to minimise the appearance of tiny blood vessels. The creamy, fragrance-free lotion absorbs quickly into skin without feeling sticky and comes in a bottle that is handy to carry around. Shu Uemura Principe Eye Zone Complex ($305/ 15ml) The soft, light-textured formula has a refreshing fragrance. Prevents under-eye puffiness and can be used under makeup.
