After about a week in Cabo, a girl could use a little under eye help, ya know?  A couple of days into the trip of late nights and early mornings I actually commented to Kathleen that I’m so glad that I finally figured out an under eye regimen that works for me.  There was a time (a couple of years really) when the bags under my eyes bothered me SO much.  Big sunglasses were my best friend, and while I still live for a good pair of sunnies, I’ve kicked the bags underneath to the curb.  Ain’t nobody got time for all that facial baggage!

So how did I do it?  Drinking more water and getting more sleep?  In a perfect world, yes.  But this world is far from perfect and so am I, so I get by with a little help from my (beauty) friends.  If you follow along on Instagram stories, then you’ve probably seen that I get lots of beauty packages sent to me.  I’m a lucky duck and appreciate every single gift, but the one product that gets me most excited is always a good under eye cream.  I’ve tried and tested a bunch, but the four above are the ones that I’ve used and loved for a while now.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye – I’ve had this little guy for almost a year now, and I’ve just about reached the bottom of the pot.  (You can probably tell it looks a little beat up in the photos above.)  The consistency is like a thick gel, but it feels amazing and so luxe under your eyes – you can sort of feel a tightening effect.  I keep this one in my nightstand and use it a couple times a week.

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream – This one is probably my newest discovery, and I love LOVE it for daytime.  It’s a bright white cream and has a luminizing effect that also helps hide dark circles.  It’s pretty genius and amazing under makeup – no flaking or annoying build-up.  I use this one every single day under my makeup.

Tula Revitalizing Eye Cream – I’ve used and loved Tula products for years, and this is my number one favorite of theirs.  This is the eye cream I used on my wedding day after staying up WAYYY late the night before.  (When your wedding is in New Orleans, what can you do?)  I keep this one in my nightstand too and use it most nights – I’m on my third jar of this one.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream – My love for IT Cosmetics runs DEEP – I use a ton of their products.  This one is somewhere between a cream and a gel, and it also feels amazing under your eyes.  I think this one also gives a slight tightening feel and is also pretty cooling.  I keep this one in my makeup bag, so it’s the night cream I always use when traveling.

And there it is, my four under eye all stars.  (Also a fifth – Aveda’s tulasara Wedding Masque Eye – I keep this one in my nightstand in Palm Springs.)  I wanted to narrow it down to a must-buy favorite, but I realized that I can’t.  I use them all, morning and night, and definitely not sparingly.  I’d love to know if there’s one I’m missing out on though.  Do you guys have a fave?  Let me know because I’m always down to try something new!

    Nikki I have used Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye since I was eighteen years old. I have tried others through the years, but have always gone back to Estée Lauder. It is the best!

      Girl, same! I have forever, but I’ve finally gotten them under control. I use the Origins one every morning and either the Tula or IT Cosmetics one every night. You can’t go wrong with any of them though! xo
