How To Apply Eye Cream: Are You Doing It Wrong?

Written By:

Crow’s feet, undereye bags, dark circles … the eye area can be a pileup of your worst skin care nightmares. Because this area is delicate and particularly vulnerable to skin issues, it’s important to apply eye cream properly. Concerned that you’re doing it wrong? Here’s the Eminence Organics guide on how to use eye cream correctly and why you even need it in the first place.

What To Do Before You Apply 

It sounds simple, but one of the first things you should do is prepare the area before application. Make sure you wipe away all traces of makeup with our Herbal Eye Makeup Remover or an oil-based cleanser like Stone Crop Cleansing Oil. If you’re sporting eyelash extensions, we recommend our Herbal Eye Makeup Remover for lifting away all signs of makeup without damaging your fragile extensions.

How To Apply Eye Cream Regular

The best way to apply eye cream is by using the following technique below. You can also watch this Eminence Organics video demonstration.

  1. Cleanse: First, cleanse the eye area. Saturate a cotton bud with 1-2 pumps of eye makeup remover. Gently wipe away residue from the eye area.

  2. Treat: To treat the eye area, pump or dispense a pea-sized amount of your chosen eye cream. We recommend the Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum. Apply the thin layer to the cleansed eye area, using light, blending movements until it is absorbed. According to Allure, a gentle application for eye cream is essential. Use your ring finger to pat under the eye area. Because it is the weakest finger, the ring finger will apply the least amount of pressure on this delicate skin.

  3. Hydrate: Apply a hydrating eye product such as the Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream. Apply the thin layer to the cleansed eye area plus the brow bone, using light, blending movements until it is absorbed. This additional application should provide extra moisture your skin may need.

  4. Use at night and/or day, as needed.

How To Apply Eye Cream – Rollerball

You can also use a rollerball style eye cream using a product such as the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream. Here is the Eminence Organics technique for a rollerball-type eye cream:

  1. Cleanse: First, cleanse the eye area. Saturate a cotton bud with 1-2 pumps of eye makeup remover. Gently wipe away residue from the eye area. 

  2. Treat: Pump a pea-sized amount of your chosen eye cream. Sweep under the eye in a circular motion twice. Then massage in a circular motion all around the eye, including the brow bone.

  3. Apply Day And Night: Use day and/or at night, as needed.

Along with hibiscus and ice wine actives, the stainless steel rollerball in the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream has a cooling effect which helps rapidly depuff the eye. If you want to superboost that soothing rollerball, leave it in the fridge to add an extra chill to your application.

Do I Really Need Eye Cream?

You may ask yourself why you need a specialized eye cream and whether an extra dose of regular moisturizer could do the same job. The reason why you need eye cream is because the fragile skin around your eye has an entirely different structure than the skin elsewhere on your face. According to WebMD, eye creams are formulated for this delicate skin and are thicker to provide extra protection. They also contain more actives that target the specific issues that the eye area is prone to. If you’re looking to deflate puffiness, combat crow’s feet or fight those fine lines, creams designed specifically for the eye area should be an essential part of your skin care routine.
