Guest Post by Meteo Beauty: My Top 4 Eye Cream Picks

Today were are starting with guest posts on my blog. I will host five fellow bloggers that I love to read, because they have amazing blogs. We're starting with Selma, an author of Meteo Beauty. She always blows me away with her amazing and detailed reviews. I learned a lot from her blog and it's always the greatest joy to read her posts. I hope you're going to enjoy reading her guest post as much as I did.


There's this entire dilemma regarding the use of eye creams. Some people find them utterly useless while others swear by them. Using an eye cream at an early age doesn't seem insane to me. After all, if you're in your early twenties, the only kind of concern you'd want to treat would be dehydration. Prevention is also the key. So, generally speaking, any eye cream you might be eyeing-up is most probably the basic type, the one that adds some moisture to that delicate eye area - and I hardly can see the negatives of that. I'm a huge proponent of prevention and I have this little theory I like to stick to. As the case is with the general feel and urge of thirst - you are already dehydrated when you feel thirsty. Smart thing would be to guzzle some water during breaks. A steady intake would keep your body levels of hydration up and you'd basically never feel thirsty. The same thing with fine lines - they're a way of your body telling you it's chronically thirsty. We're not touching the subject of deep wrinkles and the collagen deterioration with age - that's something I'll personally have to tackle in the future but for now, let us focus on basic eye area needs. As a soon to be twenty-eight years old woman, I've tested my fair share of eye creams and I bring you the top four I personally enjoy to use and would recommend to others without any hesitation. All four creams are different in their own ways but, ultimately, they all bring in the big guns on the hydration front.


Let us start with an eye cream which packs the most punch. Nuxe Anti-Fatigue Moisturizing Cream was, in fact, the first cream I thought of worthy my time and money. Smart and hygienic pump packaging paired with a lovely, delicate floral scent (think Nuxe multipurpose oil) surely make it a dream to use. However, the real reason why this little fella remained in my skincare stash is the ideal ratio of truly strong hydration without being oily. It feels rich and luxurious but it's not too heavy at all. It makes the under-eye area so juicy and plump, concealer glides over like a dream and skin retains its suppleness for hours. If you know that strictly dehydration is your concern, you want something that oozes water and has a certain lightness whilst doing the job - Afrodita Hydra Thermal Eye Cream Against First Wrinkles is your guy! It's the perfect basic eye cream for young people - I can picture even teens using it but I think that the main focus is on the people in their early twenties and/or early thrities. It literally sucks all the moisture back into the skin, makes it very 'moist' (God, I hate that word) and bouncy. It just feels very fresh, light, unobtrusive and delightful. It's like a tiny fountain for eyes to keep 'em awake. It even provides UV protection - perfect for no make-up days. A very light cream that I imagine must be the epitome of summertime is the L'Occitane Immortelle Brightening Eye Care & Mask Duo. I haven't found anything quite as good as this gel-like eye care duo and I reckon I'll stick to it this summer as well. It isn't runny or too plastick-y but it does feel quite gel-like in the way that it cools hot eyes and truly calms them down. The metal applicator has an ice cube effect, depuffing the eye area along the way. It's extremely helpful for puffy eyes and an absolute savior during summer as it doubles up as an eye mask. If you apply it in a thicker layer, you have a very powerful and soothing eye treatment. 


My final discovery was a little something I had my eye on for months. Caudalie Vinosource SOS Morning Eye Rescue is a life saver for everyone who frequently deals with tired, hot and exhausted eyes. Too much time in front of you computer/laptop or smartphone results in tired eyes that look red and angry. This amazing little cream soothes them in a jiffy with its simple, refreshing formula. The gentle souffle texture cools down the entire area and instantly erases tiresome looks. It isn't a miracle worker, neither of these eye creams are, but it does what it says. All in all, none of these eye creams will miraculously erase fine lines, wrinkles, depuff from now on to eternity or diminish dark circles. I'm not sure if any eye creams can do so - if you come across one of those - do let me know. What I can say, though, is that my picks can ensure hydration boosts, smooth and supple skin, they're a good prep for concealers and foundation, they have a soothing/cooling effect, they're gentle and have decent ingredients. Also, each is perfect for each season - Nuxe for winter, Afrodita for autumn, L'Occitane for summer and Caudalie for spring - anyway, that's how I categorize them. Hopefully some of you might find these recommendations helpful and I just want to say huge thanks to our dear Tatjana who has invited me to do this post at her lovely blog. It's always a joy to get a slice of Taya's beauty world, she is truly one of the nicest, most positive people I have had the pleasure to get to know via our blogs + bonus is the fact that she has a terriffic blog as well. If you fancy this post and if you feel inclined, do stop by my blog Meteo Beauty so we can continue our beauty chat.

  2. I like to think that using eye creams makes a difference, although I never seem to notice it. I guess I'll notice the difference in a few years. Eye cream is like a pizza to me, I like most of them and never have a top pizza place to go for a pizza, because they all seem just fine :). Loved your review;).

    1. Love that pizza comparison! :D
      I'm sure our skin of the under-eye area will thank us in a decade or so for treating it so well!
      Thank you, I'm really happy you liked it!

    2. Anna, my thoughts exactly. I'm eager to try Afrodita eye cream. I'm really loving the mask from Hydra Thermal collection. :)

    3. That cream definitely has the best, most affordable pricing out of all and I think you really cannot go wrong with it.

  4. Great post! :)
    I love using eye creams, although I (still) don't have favourite one. :)
    Afrodita Hydra Thermal sounds lovely since it's not that expensive. :D Will definitely buy it as soon as I've finished all my eye creams. :P

    I'm your new follower, without a doubt. :P

    1. It's hard to find a favorite anything these days so I feel you. Afrodita eye cream really is a good one, not too expensive but it provides great hydration and basic care - it's perfect as prevention for the future years ;)
      Do let me know if you end up purchasing it and thank you for your support, means the world to me! ❤

    1. I really tried my best to give Tatjana's readers - the best! Out of all eye creams I've tried, these are my definite faves!
      I also think guest posts are great, in fact, Tatjana had one last Autumn at my blog so this is really us two connecting and sharing even further. I also adore when the beauty community spreads the love!
      Thank you for your support, that's my 'fuel' :D

  6. First of all I love Selma and her blog. She is just an amazing girl. Second...this post is great. I especially like it since I have a thing for eye creams. I was planing on trying the Afrodita one because of Selmas review. Great guest post ad I'm not surprised that Selma was your choice.

    1. Awww - Selma loves you too Aleks! <3
      Thank you, hvala, arigato, danke, gracias, spasiba :D
      I think that Afrodita eye cream is an undiscovered gem! I see it as a people-pleaser, it isn't too heavy but it isn't too runny either. You feel that you've applied it but it doesn't leave the eye area greasy + it has a great price point!
      I really hope you won't regret my recommendation!
      Thank you again for all those kind words <3

  7. I'll definitely try Afrodita since it's so affordable, although Nuxe one sounds amazing too :)

    1. Pretty lady, thank you for your support during all this time - much appreciated!
      Yup, here's an entire circle of people supporting the affordable eye cream revival :D
      Greek Goddess Aphrodite, do you hear us? Make more of these eye creams ASAP ;)

  8. So many people hate the word 'moist' haha :D I actually noticed that Benefit It's Potent eye cream makes my dark circles less blue! But it's so difficult to get Benefit if you don't travel somewhere where it's sold in stores :/

    1. Hahahaha yup, it feels so 'dirty' and disgusting at the same time + it associated with something wet - that's enough for me to hate the word :D
      I'd love to try the Benefit's eye cream but that brand simply doesn't deliver to Bosnia! Too bad, maybe I'll pick some of their items when I travel for the holidays this year ;)

    2. I always remember the part of HIMYM with Barney's play where he would just say 'moist' for a few hours :D
      It's the same for Slovenia, most 'popular' shops (=free delivery :P) send just within UK -.-

    3. Hahahaha I just laughed my arse off xD
      Now I will have that picture in my head for the rest of the day, thankyouverymuch! :D
      Meh, I am already over that delivery issue - will simply have to pick up certain things on my travels ;)

  9. Hi, I have to say that I feel like you can read minds. I'm on a hunt for a new eye cream and than this post shows up. Tatjana's blog is one of my favorites and now I just have to add Selma's blog on the list cuz she tottaly convinced me with this in depth post.
    By the way I will definitely check the Caudalie and Afrodita eye creams

    1. You know, I have a 'mind reader' sign written all over my forehead xD
      Kidding, just kidding but there is some type of telepathy going on here, right? :D
      We share the same love towards Tatjana and her blog - hopefully my own blog will seduce in you in a mysterious way too? BTW I'm currently using the Caudalie eye cream the most and it really is gorgeous <3

  10. The Afrodita one really is great, I quite liked it :) As far as helping with dark circles, I found the Vichy Idealia eyes to be quite effective :)

  11. Loved the review and I'll try the Afrodita one as soon as I use up mine (something from Balea). I'm also not quite sure about eye creams (if they have an effect or not), but I do use them, I'm just not ready (yet) to spend a lot of money on them. I'm sure that in 10 years I'll change my mind. :)

    1. I think that we shall see the effect but after a long, long time of vigilent use. It is just about providing hydration, that is all. Prevention, I think, is the key. That is why I am all for simple hydrating eye creams - the will not break the bank but they will do their job nevertheless. Do try the Afrodita one, I think you will love it! ;)

  12. Great post, I also love Caudalie cream, and now you've made me curious about the rest of them. :D But still, Clinique All About Eyes Rich is my absolute favourite for years, I still haven't found anything that really compares, at least for my skin type (normal/slightly dry/dehydrated). :)

    1. Caudalie has great creams, I am currently loving the Vinosource and the Puple Vitaminee ranges. I have tried the Clinique All About Eyes Rich and I agree that it is an awesome one. However, my personal fave along those lines must be the Nuxe Anti Fatigue eye cream - life saver! :D
