Banish Those Bags: 6 of The Best Brightening Eye Serums

eye serum

Puffy eyes and dark circles can be a tell-tale sign of our age, so keep the eye area bright and looking wide-awake with these fantastic eye serums

When it comes to the delicate eye area, banishing those dark circles sometimes requires more than simply logging a good night’s sleep… whilst tiredness can play a part, bags under the eyes can also be put down to genetics, pigmentation, and thinning skin. Whilst skincare products won’t necessarily be able to make those dark circles disappear completely, hi-tech ingredients found in eye serums can do wonders for diffusing light, brightening pigmented areas and giving the skin around the eyes a radiant appearance.


Eyeko Eye Boost Serum


Eyeko’s Eye Boost Serum is an exciting step forward in the brand’s innovation. The vibrating massage tool delivers a turbo-charged dose of Caffeine, Vitamin B, Hyaluronic Acid and Red Algae extract to reduce puffiness, diminish dark shadows and visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Korean-made ‘snow-drop’ technology bursts on contact with the skin, to instantly smooth and energise the delicate eye area. It even comes in a zero-waste squeezy tube, and it’s cruelty-free!
