In the UK, more and more men are going beyond moisturiser and adding an under eye cream to their grooming routine.

Is a men's eye cream missing from your grooming routine? Find your perfect match as we reveal the best eye creams for men.

Do men need eye cream?

Many men use eye cream or serum as part of their daily routine to keep their eyes feeling fresh, firm and awake.

Ideal for men who travel a lot, late-night gamers, tired new dads and male shift workers, eye creams keep the skin around your eyes moisturised, disguise dark circles and help tired eyes feel more comfortable.

Man applying eye cream

The main reasons why men might use a natural eye cream as part of their daily grooming routine are to: 

  • Target signs of skin ageing, such as lines and sagging
  • Target signs of tiredness, such as under eye bags and puffy eyes
  • Hydrate and refresh the skin around the eyes
  • Soothe and nourish the skin around the eyes

When should men start using eye cream?

Men can start using an under-eye cream at any age, but many men first reach for the eye cream when they notice the first signs of ageing. These typically emerge once men turn 30 and include eye bags, dark circles and wrinkles.

That said, we wouldn’t be surprised to see more men reach for the revitalising benefits of eye cream in their 20s. That’s because as screen time and the use of digital devices increase, so does eye fatigue.

How can men get rid of under eye bags and dark circles? 

Men who want firmer, fresher-feeling eyes can’t go wrong with our unisex Rejuvenating Eye Cream.

Designed for eyes that look tired even when you’re feeling wide awake, this awakening eye cream for men uses a plant cell complex of Tuberose with Betaine to disguise dark circles and tone lines.

This complex has been proven to diminish puffiness and dark circles. 76% of testers noticed a decrease in dark circles in just 30 days!

Best anti-ageing eye cream for men 

If your main concern is targeting wrinkles around your eyes, then the best eye cream for men is our Rejuvenating Eye Cream.

Rich in eye-firming actives, this uses the Postbiotic Bacillus Ferment, which plumps the delicate skin around the eyes by increasing hydration by 26% in just 1 hour.

If you have sensitive eyes, you may prefer our unscented eye cream.

How to apply eye cream for men

Men can apply eye cream at any time of the day or night. For best results, dispense the product onto your fingertip and then gently tap it onto the skin around your eyes.

You do not need to wash off your eye cream. Simply leave it to sink into the skin before applying your moisturiser.

If you are prone to bags with a blue/purple hue around your eyes, concentrate on the area of skin directly under the eye, using the gentle tapping motion to drain excess fluid away from the eyes.
