- Caffeine to revive tired eyes and work on puffing.
The Nakin Eye Cream Complex is an affordable highly effective option. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin it's a gentle but effective anti-ageing eye cream. Made in Britain & cruelty free.
2. Herbfarmacy Just Eye Cream £21 30ml
This must be number two on our best eye cream ratings, because we love the company due to the fact that they farm their own organic ingredients and then make their skin care by hand, which is all Soil Association registered. The Soil Association certification is hard to achieve, but it can limit the ingredients that can be used in a product. This eye cream is made from 83% organically farmed ingredients like Arnica, Cornflower & Ginseng.
3. Goop Perfecting Eye Cream £75 15ml
This Goop Eye Cream by Juice Beauty is the most expensive on our list, but we wanted to include it due to the high number of amazing reviews. Of course, you expect perfection when paying such a premium price for a product. Goop is a premium range, and the brainchild of nature loving Gwyneth Paltrow. Goop say that it hydrates, soothes, firms, visibly reduces lines and wrinkles, increases elasticity and plumps skin. The product includes olive butter, sandalwood nut oil and peptides. This might be for you if you like to spend lots on face care and having a well-known brand is important to you.
4. 100% Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream £22 30ml
This 100% pure and natural product is a generous sized eye cream and suitable for mature and dry skin. It is made with caffeine-rich green tea and coffee, both known to help with the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Add to this is aloe and rosehip to nourish the eye area.
5. One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm £45 18g
This eye balm has the benefit of being mostly organic. At Nakin we are sometimes weary of using balms and oils near the eye area, as if they get into the eye they can irritate and be hard to wash away when this does happen. So be careful when using it and only tap around the eye orbital bone, so it does not get too close to the actual eye. We love that on their directions they suggest using this on damp skin for best results. This makes sense to us as a balm can be too heavy for the eye area, because it’s important to never weigh the delicate skin down. It contains mineral-rich sea kelp, vitamin E and pomegranate to brighten and restore eyes.
6. Dr. Hauschka Eye Balm £30 10ml
If you do like a balm, then another eye product that you might like is this Dr. Hauschka Eye Balm. It is definitely easier to get hold of than the One Love Organics Eye Balm, with Dr. Hauschka being a huge global brand. We recommend this eye balm for those with very dry eyes, as it contains Beeswax and Cocoa Butter, and both are quite rich.
7. Ultrasun Eye Mineral Sun Protection SPF30 £20 15ml
We all know that one of the biggest factors to prematurely aged skin is from sun damage. So, we are including this sun protection as it is specially made for the eyes. The eye area shows ageing the most through crow’s feet and bags. It is also a very delicate part of the face, so using a sunscreen that is specially produced for the eyes is always recommended. We also love it because it offers protection for eyes with natural mineral sun protection. It’s free from perfume, mineral oils, PEGs, silicones, preservatives and synthetic filters. As well as the superb sun protection this eye cream it contains antioxidants from sunflowers and the tara tree.
8. Living Nature Firming Eye Cream £33 10ml
So, this eye cream has a high price tag, being £33 for a very small 10ml. But we wanted to include it as we heard good things about Living Nature. Although we had thought that this product was 100% natural, we realised that when we read the ingredients list this is not the case. The nice thing about this eye cream is that is contains Manuka Honey, which is hydrating and really nice for sensitive skin. So if the skin around the eyes is itchy or irritated then this might be the eye cream for you.
9. Wild Ferns Manuka Honey Eye Serum £9 15ml
As a cheaper alternative to the Living Nature Firming Eye Serum is this Wild Fern Manuka Honey Eye Serum and it has some very impressive data. Wild Fern are a New Zealand brand, so they know a thing or two about manuka honey. The most exciting part of this product is that as with all the other Wild Ferns products, it contains manuka honey 80+. This rating means that the manuka honey has been tested under tight controls which measure the purity of the honey based on pollen count. This is a very high rating for the honey.
10. Santaverde Aloe Vera Eye Cream Fragrance Free £28 10ml
This eye cream is included in our top 20 as it is fragrance free and the ingredients are a bit different to your average natural eye cream. It uses the oils of fruits mango, passion fruit and apricots. We especially love the sound of the passion fruit oil which is also a great source of vitamin A in the form of carotenoids, and these help to rejuvenate skin.
11. KORRES Wild Rose Hydrating and Brightening Eye Cream SPF15 £24 15 ml
This list of the best top natural eye creams would not be complete without a entry from a product containing rose. Rose is a classic skincare ingredient used for centuries due to its beautifying ability. As well as being easy to get hold of, rose helps skin by balancing oil production, calming and strengthening skin.
12. This Works Night Time My Wrinkles Tired Eyes £44 20ml
It’s rare to have an eye cream especially for use at night-time use. The aim of this eye cream is to use ingredients like retinoids (which can be irritating) on the area around the eyes at night, with the aim to wake up with fresh revived eyes.
13. REN Keep Young & Beautiful Firm & Lift Eye Cream £33 15ml
REN describe their eye cream as a lifting, firming and replenishing eye cream that reduces the appearance of crows feet, lines and wrinkle. The end result is explained as smoother, tighter and revitalised skin around the eyes.
14. Kimberly Sayer Cellular Extract Eye Lift Gel £32 30ml
We wanted to include this eye cream gel because it contains plant collagen. We know that collagen is the holy grail of youthful skin and eyes when it is made naturally by the body. So, using it topically on skin will benefit the skin around eyes, and is said to even firm the skin. The reason this product is special is because most topical collagen in skincare today is derived from animals, so we love that this is a plant-based collagen eye cream.
15. Liz Earle Superskin Eye Cream £39 15ml
We like the Liz Earle brand as the founder Liz Earle is a big advocate of living a natural holistic lifestyle. This eye cream promises to slow the ticking clock on the skin around eyes with botanical extracts to firm and lift skin, as well as reducing the appearance of under eye dark circles and puffiness.
16. Lavera Illuminating Eye Cream £17 15ml
This eye cream is quite unique by using pearl extract as an active ingredient to give an illuminating effect to eyes. It’s certified to Natrue natural skincare standards. Natrue have a goal to protect and promote natural and organic cosmetics.
17. Burt's Bees Skin Nourishment Eye Cream £20 14g
They say this eye cream balances and nourishes and it is allergy, dermatologist, ophthalmologist tested and also hypoallergenic. Burts Bees as the name suggests use ingredients from bees and they also work to help them.
18. Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream £22 15ml
An everyday natural eye cream to balance out the skin, hydrate and brighten with daily use. It contains witch hazel, coconut oil and cucumber.
19. Green People Organic Firming Eye Serum £16 10ml
This eye cream is certified to be made from 86% organic ingredients and is good if you are looking to cool down and refresh the eye area. Formulated without SLS, SLES, methylisothiazolinone, methylchloroisothiazolinone, parabens, lanolin, phthalates, propylene glycol, alcohol (ethyl alcohol, ethanol), harsh foaming agents, irritating emulsifiers, synthetic fragrance, PABA-sunscreen, gluten, colourants, petrochemicals, urea, DEA, TEA or PEGs.
20. Evolve Organic Beauty Hyaluronic Eye Complex £16 10ml
This is included for those that like to apply their eye products with a roller ball. Roller balls have become popular in the last decade. They can be good as finger tips are not needed for ultimate hygiene, however applying eye products with finger tips allows for good precision, which is often helpful as the product can be directed to areas that need it most, such as crow’s feet. Fingertip application can also be economical as smaller amounts of product can be used.
