When we are talking about eye creams, several things are used to rate them. The way a cream affects your skin, how long the effects last, how much the cream costs – all these factors are at play.
First, you need to remember that each woman has her own best eye cream. Even if you get something widely advertised and it has little or no effect, do not get desperate: your best option is still somewhere out there. The market for eye creams is huge and there are many manufacturers producing decent quality creams.
With that in mind, you need to determine what you need in an eye cream. Are you after reducing the puffiness around your eyes, or you are more worried about the dark circles? Some want their eye cream to have an anti-aging effect, while others just want a moisturizer. You are unique and you need to try different products to find what suits you best.

Some of the eye creams got amazing reviews because of the reported fast effects, like DERMAdoctor wrinkle revenge.
