7 Soothing, Smoothing Eye Serums To Send Puffiness Packing

Yes, your eye area deserves a whole routine now

Remember when we discovered face serums? A true lightbulb moment, right? Suddenly it seemed ludicrous that we hadn’t been taking advantage of these highly concentrated, extra-efficacious formulas all along.

After all, nothing says ‘ticking off skin goals’ like applying a serum and a moisturiser to work in unison. Both aim to correct your concerns, just in different ways (serums diving deep beneath the dermis and moisturisers locking everything good in and everything bad out on the surface).

Well, now’s the time to come to the exact same revelation, but for your eye area. While we’ll bet you already have an eye cream in your topical repertoire, doubling down with an eye serum beneath (or solo if you prefer the idea of a lighter lone formula) will only help matters. And yes, by matters we definitely mean dark circles, puffiness and all the other eye area-specific issues we face.

We’ve rounded up the best options to aid you in finding your favourite… here are the 7 best eye serums in Australia.
