Ask Kara: Eye Creams for 20-Somethings

Dear DCShopGirl,

What eye creams would you recommend for someone in their twenties? I’m looking for something to help with the prevention of wrinkles and reduce my bags. 

-Eye Worry

As someone who’s always sampling new eye creams (there are so many on the market these days!), it’s important you purchase a product that works for you. Kudos for wanting to combat those under eye concerns early!

If you want to splurge on an eye cream (and I recommend this if you have many eye concerns), I love Philosophy’s Eye Hope ($49). It’s a light weight treatment that helps minimize fine lines, dark circles and puffiness as well as moisturizes and even helps brighten skin tone.

If you’re on a budget, opt for a drugstore buy like Neutrogena Ageless Intensive Deep Wrinkle Eye Cream (about $19) which is gentle on skin and won’t hurt your wallet.

Finally, my latest obsession, a treatment and concealer rolled into one is Perricone MD ‘No Concealer’ Concealer ($45). You can read an extended explanation of why I love this product here, but long-story-short, I love this product for it’s anti-aging formula, SPF 35 and its camoflaging ability to conceal dark circles instantly.
