Back in April, our Top Ten reader recommendations turned out to be our most popular feature. Truth In Aging readers are a picky bunch (we mean that in a good way) and if you liked it enough to write in, then it must be good. We've been getting a lot of requests for eye cream recommendations and it seemed that it was high time to collate the best as recommended by members of the Truth In Aging community. Keep sharing, your input makes Truth In Aging.

Skinfinite LOL ($49 in the TIA shop). This amber colored gel and surprise new hit has been getting rave reviews for its effect on dark under eye circles and excellent quality to price ratio.MartaI like its ingredient list with prominently featured peptides and well-chosen botanicals.

Mark: LOL performed very well for me over the entire six-week period (and yes, I will be purchasing this in the future).

Glynnis: Since using the LOL, I've been able to eliminate both concealers! And yes, it does eliminate lines.

Linda: I cannot live without my LOL...after a month there is such a huge improvement with my dark circles and the lines around my eyes. For anyone who tired of looking tired, this product is a must!

Peggy G: I am thrilled with the results and I will be adding LOL to my daily routine. I would recommend to anyone who suffers with dark circles.

AQ Eye Serum ($99 in the TIA shop). AQ's serum for the face is an impressively effective product  - one of those that elicits “I can’t quite believe what I’m seeing” reactions and the Eye Serum is a worthy companion that smoothes lines and firms the skin (it also grows eyelashes!).

Bess: After using the eye serum for a year, I stopped using under-eye concealer altogether. The skin beneath my eyes is firm and bright.

Raeann: AQ seems to good to be true. I am seeing great results and loving it.

Snowberry Smoothing Eye Serum  ($53). Our tester liked this so much that she ditched her old eye cream. Great for eye bags and dark circles, Snowberry appeals to those that prefer their anti-aging peptides – such as collagen and elastin stimulating tripeptide-1 - to reside with plenty of antioxidant botanicals.

Pam: Snowberry delivered what it promised and I’m completely happy with the results. What a wonderful surprise – I never thought I’d be able to say that about an eye serum.

LiftLab Lift & Firm Eye Cream ($95 in the TIA shop). With a unique marine active, LiftLab's eye cream redefines the eye area to visibly firm and reduce the appearance of crow's feet, deep wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness and sagginess. A favorite amongst Discover With Marta members.

Penny: It has perceptibly changed my usual baggy and occasionally puffy eyes to the smoothness of my younger years. It has been a wonderful discovery.

DWM member: Works and kept crepiness at bay.

Your Best Face Correct ($150 in the TIA shop). This bestselling eye cream has so many fans. As Vicky put it, Correct is “the one” that I haven’t been without for over 2 years. It’s definitely made the transition from 50s to 60s so much more graceful.” Recently reformulated, the new Correct is packed with even more antioxidants. The ingredients list is to die for with powerful antiagers, skin tighteners and dark circle faders.  In Marta's opinion, if the old Correct was great, the new one is superb. Here is what some of you early adopters think:

Greg: I've used so many eye creams and was skeptical when using this one. This is by far the best eye cream I have ever used. It's the only one that really showed a difference in terms of wrinkles under the eyes.

Ildi: The texture of new Correct is excellent

JC: Man, if it was in my budget to blow 150$ on just an eye cream, much less anything else in the line, this looks the one i'd do it on. That ingredient list is beautiful.

Gina: Two weeks in and I am impressed like I’ve never – never, ever – been before.

Sevani Ageless Eyes Revitalizing Eye Serum ($54 in the TIA shop). This natural eye serum is  a hydrating oil and ideal for those that don’t like creams or are milia prone. The oils blend antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Also great for for vertical lip lines and dehydrated lips.

Jeri: I feel like I have been let in on the best secret ever! This little golden oil is as good as gold.

Lynn: This is the perfect solution for my dry skin.

Kim: To my surprise, the skin around my tired, dry eyes instantly looked more nourished and dewy.

ReLuma Eye Cream ($90). ReLuma’s facial serum is a hands down winner. The eye cream, with the same growth factor actives, gets a more mixed reaction. Those that love though, reported great results:

Gloria: The area under my eye has become firmer and the tiny wrinkles in the corners are unseen. I would say Reluma Eye Cream is a winner.

Pat: This does a great job for maintaining my eye area

Rose: I can honestly say that it was the absolute best eye cream I've ever used

Your Best Face Refresh ($80). A hydrating eye cream that is less of a heavy hitter than Correct by Your Best Face, making it a good choice for 30-somethings, 40-somethings without too much damage, and a good maintenance cream to alternate with Correct for the thrifty

Kim: YBF Refresh has literally made me a believer in eye creams again.

Sandy: Refresh is a wonderful alternative to Correct.

Michelle: The area around my eyes is brighter and my skin just looks healthier.

La Vie Celeste Restorative Rose Hydrosol Eye Cream ($65 in the TIA shop) The mostly plant based formula in LVC’s eye cream includes one of Marta's favorite botanicals, bearberry, a source of arbutin and, therefore, a skin brightener.  And there are plenty of antioxidants in the forms of bilberry, pomegranate and green tea.

Vicky: I am very impressed with this eye cream.

Lori: I have discovered noticeable improvement with La Vie Celeste eye cream

Kahina Eye Cream ($65 ). As well as Kahina’s signature argan oil, there are sea fennel, green and white tea, sodium hyaluronate and hexapeptide-11

Tina: A fabulously delightful find
