Why You Need An AM & PM Eye Cream

Why You Need An AM & PM Eye Cream

Thin or Thick? This is normally never discussed! Most companies recommend for you to use the same eye cream both in the morning and at night, but I highly disagree.

Morning Routine: In the morning, people tend to go to work and wear some sort of foundation or BB cream on top of their moisturizer. From my experience, having a thin eye cream is much better in the morning, and one that works with your makeup especially. The last thing you want to happen is have your eye cream flake or make your makeup slide down your face. When researching for an eye cream, opt for a thin, water based one for AM so it can quickly sink into the skin so you can move on through your day.

Night Routine: At night, a PM cream should be thick (thicc). You need something that takes awhile to sink into the skin. You can tell if it’s thick enough if you take a small amount on the skin like your finger, turn it upside down, and if it drops then it’s not the right consistency. It will slide down your skin, and you need a thick cream. The reason for this, is so that it can work with your body while you sleep. Night holds the hours of healing, and with applying your nightly oils and thick creams, this will allow your body to hold in and actually start to rejuvenate your skin.

Opinion

The (blue) Andalou Naturals Coconut Water Eye Lift Cream is just what I need to replenish any dry skin, and it works well with my makeup. This is a very thin and water based eye cream, lightly scented (almost no scent), which is perfect if you’re looking for a quick replenish in the morning. This is also a natural product which is an A on my list.

The (pink) Shiseido WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream is so amazing to literally preserve my skin at night. This formula is extremely thick, not sticky, lightly scented, and excellent for any season. My only cons to this cream is a few ingredients, so I am currently looking for a alternative. If you don’t mind certain ingredients, then this will be perfect for you. I feel this is truly effective, but I definitely wish it was clean beauty.
