The best eye serums for banishing dark circles

Brighten up with the best gels, creams and lotions on the market

Eye serum. Probably something you haven’t considered adding to your everyday grooming routine, is it? Sure, you’ve got your SPF moisturiser, your beard oil and enough haircare products to rival a barber but you’ve never given your eyes much thought. And this, gents, is a mistake.

The skin around your eyes is more delicate and prone to dryness and fine lines than the rest of your face so your usual moisturiser isn’t going to cut it. It’s also the first place colleagues, friends and potential clients are going to spot the first signs of a big night out or a late night in the office. The good news is there are a whole host of powerful serums that promise to brighten, smooth and refresh tired eyes in next to no time. Read on for our guide to the best men’s eye creams to buy now…

Heath London Eye Serum

Long days in the (home) office made those dark circles increasingly noticeable on Zoom calls? This eye serum from British brand Heath has been formulated to protect against all the skin stressors of modern life. The key ingredient here is Soliberine NAT which shields against the harmful blue light emitted by phones and devices. There’s also hyaluronic acid and Persian silk tree extract to help brighten, firm and hydrate the eye area to reduce puffiness and lighten dark circles.

Dr Dennis Gross Triple Correction Eye Serum

Crow’s feet may be a sign of a life well lived but, if yours are becoming a little too prominent for your liking, it’s time to invest in an anti-aging eye serum. Dr Dennis Gross’ powerful formula may be on the pricey side but, containing wonder ingredients ferulic acid and retinol, this lightweight, antioxidant gel will take care of fine lines and wrinkles in no time. It’s also gentle enough to be applied twice a day for optimal results.

Bioeffect EGF Eye Serum

The skin around the eye can be more sensitive and delicate than the rest of your face so, if you tend to be a bit heavy-handed with your daily moisturiser, it will pay to invest in a serum with a rollerball applicator that gently massages the skin while applying a controlled amount of product. Bioeffect’s anti-aging serum contains EGF, a plant-based replica of the epidermal growth factor which occurs naturally in human protein, along with hyaluronic acid to tackle fine lines and rebalance moisture levels for a radiant and firm appearance.

Niod Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate

niod eye serum

If the highly technical name of Niod’s eye serum didn’t already make it clear, this is a product with some serious science behind it. Within this small apothecary-style bottle is packed 28 different clinical technologies and, while we could reel off their official names (Bio-tech Superoxide Dismutase Hydrolyzed Peptide Complex, anyone?), all you need to know is that it promises to diminish puffiness within 15 days while improving tone, texture and the appearance of wrinkles. Plus it will look great in your bathroom cabinet too.
