Eye Serum vs Eye Cream, why do we need it? The skin around our eyes is 40 percent thinner and absorbs much quicker than the rest of our face, making it more susceptible to environmental aging (think wrinkles!) – which is why we are on an endless hunt for the best eye care to hydrate, smooth, plump and brighten. The question is Eye Serum vs Eye Cream - Which One is Right for You?
There have always been many myths about the perfect eye cream, “does it exist?” “When should you start?” “How do I find the perfect fit for me?” When considering a product for your under eyes the main thing to consider is whether you prefer a serum or cream-based eye product.
What is Eye Serum?
Eye Serums tend to be lighter and fill in small lines and crows feet, leaving skin appearing and feeling more hydrated and plumped.
What is Eye Cream?
Eye cream has a fluffy, luxe texture to help brighten the under-eye area to help you appear alert and awake.
With so many elements to consider, how do you find which is the best choice for you? Don’t worry, just like with Cinderella and her glass slipper, your skincare godmothers have arrived and we are here to help you find your perfect fit!
Eye Serum vs Eye Cream | The Difference Between Eye Serum And Eye Cream:
The main difference between an eye serum and eye cream lies in its texture.
Texture: Eye creams tend to be thicker and richer-feeling, while the thinner texture of eye serums feels light, refreshing, and silkier than the emollient eye creams.
Ingredients: Both eye serum and eye cream contain essential anti-aging ingredients such as collagen and essential vitamins to help fight signs of aging and fatigue.
AM/PM: An eye serum may fit best in your morning routine because of its water-based formulas that are easily absorbed by the skin and can lay nicely under other products or makeup. An eye cream tends to be a bit heavier making it an ideal fit for your nighttime routine. Putting your cream on before bed allows the product time to successfully absorb and formulate on the skin helping you wake up with refreshed and light under eyes.
Benefits: Both eye serum and eye cream play a major role in reducing the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, and fatigue. Your water-based eye serum tends to do a better job at filling in fine lines & wrinkles because of how thin and fluid the formula is. Your cream-based product will do a better job fixing the outside layer of your skin, helping discoloration and puffiness underneath your eyes.
This comes down to personal preference. Each product has its specific benefits but it is up to you to see which one fits better in your daily routine. The good news is that it is fun to experiment with skincare and find out which method works best for you!
