If you're one of the many women who think eye creams are just another way for the cosmetic industry to get you to buy more skin care products, dermatologist Kenneth Beer, MD, PA, says you should reconsider. The skin around your eye is the thinnest layer of skin on your entire body, and therefore the most sensitive, he says. So using a cream made specifically for your eyes is crucial, especially as you age.

"Eye creams can, and often do, show results if they are used appropriately and for a long enough time," says Beer. The trick is to find the best eye cream for your skin's needs. If you feel like you've been duped by the hundreds of eye creams on the market promising to erase your dark circles, puffiness and fine lines, you probably haven't tried the ones on this reader-approved list. Our reviewers have tested all the potions, creams, and elixirs for the delicate eye area and boiled it down to these 16 eye creams that actually work — and we've even added in a few editor's picks too.
