The Inkey List make brilliant eye creams. Often an area within skincare that seems optional due to false promises in jars having been the norm for so long. It’s rare that I care for an eye cream, so liking the entire range from Inkey came as a total surprise!

For all of the products mentioned in this post the application remains the same. Apply a pea size using your ring finger and take around the orbital bone in circular motions.

I hope the below breakdowns guide you to which product is best for your concerns, I often feel overwhelmed by product information so I have simplified the descriptions but if you have any questions at all you can alway drop me a message on Instagram.

Caffeine was the brands first eye cream and has since gone on to gain cult status among beauty fans.

This lightweight serum cream texture is great for dealing with dehydration and puffiness. It soothes and hydrates really well. A great daily eye cream for everyone.

Brighten I eye cream is one of my favourite eye cream launches in recent years. I was remember being lucky enough to hear about this pre- launch from the product development team and just hearing how excited the team were about how brilliant the product was had me eagerly anticipating the launch!

The second I got it I loved it. It’s a slightly richer texture but doesn’t cause any puffiness.

It’s better for those of us who struggle with darkness and provides hydration whilst instantly illuminating the under eye which is why I only use this in the morning.

The cooling metal applicator is a great massage tool (incredible for early mornings!)

The newest of the trio, The Inkey List Retinol Eye Cream is one of few accessible Retinol eye products which is great to see because it is the only ingredients that has ever improved my dark circles.

The richest texture of the trio but massages in surprisingly well. Best recommended for anyone with dry undereyes concerned with darkness and signs of aging.
