Can someone, anyone, please explain to me why eye creams are some of the most expensive skincare products out there, and why are so many excellent eye creams not available in India? I have been using the Mama Earth Eye Cream for several months, it is very nourishing and soothing but I feel that my under eye region is craving for a little bit more. The fine lines are irking me and the dark circles never go away, thanks to the lack of sufficient sleep. However, every eye cream that seems like something that would help with the situation can either not be shipped to India or is insanely expensive 😦 Anyway, here are the eye creams that I have been eyeing, and hope to buy one day when I have all the money in the world to spare.
1. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Treatment
Kathleen Lights says that the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye treatment helps a lot with dark circles, and when Kathleen Lights says something, I trust her blindly. This cream is available in India on Nykaa.com BUT it costs a whopping INR 3200! I guess I will have to save up for this one.
2. Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream
Kaushal Beauty swears by the Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream and the ingredients do seem promising. This one claims to brighten the under eye area and depuff the much-hated bags, and I wish that this was available in India. The websites that do ship it to India have crazy shipping charges and you will have to shell out anywhere between INR 3000-4000 including shipping. Wish someone got it for me for my birthday!
3. Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream
The Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Cream has been featured in various “top eye cream” lists over the years and this one claims to work on both fine lines and dark circles. It is priced at INR 2,200 on Amazon for a tiny 14ml tube, but I am not sure whether the product is the original one because the reviews on Amazon India are not that great.
So these are the eye creams I have been lusting over at the moment. If you know of a relatively inexpensive eye cream available in India that works on fine lines and dark circles then please let me know in the comments below. In the meantime, I will start saving up for at least one of these!
