I recently made a promise to a reader ("I'm a 50 year-old guy, just starting to get puffy eyes") that I would look out for a well-priced, but potentially effective eye cream. After a somewhat frustrating hunt (my favorite YBF Correct at $150
was clearly out of range), I am proud to present Menscience Ultralight Eye Rescue Formula
($37 for 1oz).
This is not oily, greasy or reminiscent of mother's cold cream. It is super moisturizing though, with hyaluronic acid for keeping in moisture and rebuilding collagen, avocado extract and shea. Rosehip oil, rich in fatty acids and flavonoids, will also nourish.
Send bags packing with antioxidant green tea, vitamins A, C and E and CoQ10. If dark rings are also a problem, there is vitamin K, kojic acid and euphrasia (a plant that is commonly known as eyebright).
