I wish I could say I slept even seven hours a night but with all the stories I write and the meetings I take and the events in Los Angeles — oh, and new Netflix shows — I stay up much later than I should. That’s one reason why eye cream is my favorite part of my morning and nighttime skincare routines. It refreshes my eyes, de-puffing and allowing me a few minutes of much-needed self-care. Now that we’re heading into a new year, I’m looking to the best new eye creams of 2023, the ones I’ll be using on rotation for months to come.

Now, I don’t use eye cream as any kind of magic potion. Most of them won’t get rid of dark circles or make it look like I actually had a full night’s rest. But that’s not what I’m looking for. What I need is the right amount of hydration, a nice creamy or gel-based texture and ingredients that don’t irritate my sensitive eyes. Am I asking for too much? I don’t think so. Below, the newbies I think you’ll love, too.


Innbeauty Project Bright & Tight Dark Circle Firming Eye Cream with Vitamin C & Peptides

This brightening and cooling gel-cream already sold out at Sephora but you can still grab it on the brand’s website. It contains three types of vitamin C and tranexamic acid to reduce the look of dark circles; peptides and bakuchiol to help firm and smooth under-eye lines and bags; and caffeine and cedar bark to prevent the appearance of thinning skin.

The Ordinary.

The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Eye Serum

If you’re part of The Ordinary’s The O. Lab, you get access to the brand’s eye serum first. Otherwise, grab it on January 16 when it launches at Ulta Beauty. You’ll love it because it contains multiple peptide technologies to target the appearance, volume and depth of wrinkles around the eye.

Ilia Bright Start Activated Eye Cream

Ilia Bright Start Retinol Alternative Brightening Eye Cream

Ilia’s first eye cream contains sea fennel extract, a plant-based retinol alternative that brightens, firms and smooths skin all without irritation. It’s perfect for those with sensitive skin and eyes who want to see visible changes without the burn.

live tinted eye cream

Live Tinted Superhue Brightening Eye Cream

Even skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation with niacinamide, caffeine and vitamin C, which also firms and and boosts collagen production. The cooling applicator makes applying it feel like a spa day. Get it at Ulta Beauty on January 15.




Herbivore Super Nova 5% THD Vitamin C + Caffeine Brightening Eye Cream

Vitamin C improves the look of dark circles, caffeine de-puffs eyes and turmeric root helps even skin tone.


Origins Plantscription Wrinkle Correction Eye Cream with Encapsulated Retinol

This ultra-hydrating eye cream contains encapsulated retinol, which promises to continue to release retinol for up to 24 hours!



Dieux eye cream

Dieux Auracle Reviving Eye Gel

I knew in one pump I’d love Dieux’s latest creation, a gel-serum that feels almost cooling going on and sinks right into the skin. It contains biotechnology-derived algae to soothe the delicate under-eye area, peptides for de-puffing and firming and 10 percent glycerin to plump and hydrate. Try it with Dieux’s Forever Eye Mask.


KOPARI eye cream

Kopari Niacinamide & Caffeine Eye Bright Cream

Don’t let the lightweight texture of these eye cream fool you. It’s much more hydrating than it first feels. That’s thanks to the soothing cucumber and celery extracts and niacinamide to help skin retain moisture. There’s also caffeine and java berry extract to reduce under-eye puffiness, all packed in one little tube.

Farmacy eye cream

Farmacy Wake Up Honey Eye Cream with Brightening Vitamin C

I’m already a big fan of the rest of Farmacy’s honey line so it’s not surprising I found its eye cream so appealing. There’s three percent vitamin C to brighten, caffeine and cranberry peptide to de-puff and the buckwheat-honey blend to provide all-night hydration.

MAKE eye balm

Make Orbital Balm Smoothing Eye Treatment

The heavy packaging of this eye balm just feels luxe and the formula delivers. There’s what Make calls a “skin brightening active” with antioxidant-rich fucoidan combined with algal polyphenols to brighten; probiotics, green tea, pomegranate and caffeine to de-puff and reduce the appearance of wrinkles; as well as biopeptides to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier.
