Although some may think eye creams are purely overrated, there are actually benefits to adding one to your beauty mix.

It should be noted that eye cream is not a smaller version of your facial moisturizer, according to dermatologists. Eye creams are formulated specifically for the eye area, which tends to be dryer and thinner. This is why many eye creams are thicker — they hold a lot of active ingredients that treat issues specifically around the eye.

If you’ve wanted to try an eye cream (or just want to try a new one), here are a few to get you started.
