The eye contour is a very delicate area of each person’s face. It is subject to multiple stresses, including facial expressions and sun exposure, which often compromise its elasticity and appearance, ending up with a visible problem, often swollen or puffy, in the lower part of the eye contour. This is what is called the eye bag. So, now that you recognize it, how do you get rid of it?
Today we will see the 10 most effective and used eye bag creams, analyzing the ingredients and benefits of each cream and who they are suitable for.
1. Shiseido Benefiance Eye Cream
The Shiseido eye wrinkle cream is a classic among premium eye care products. It has ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and tocopherol. It is a cream for all those who suffer from dry or particularly delicate skin. The very high concentration of antioxidants, as well as hyaluronic acid, makes this cream an excellent eye contour to counteract the signs of aging, brighten the eye area and smooth the skin with a good anti-wrinkle effect.
It has a very delicate formulation, is very moisturizing, and not greasy in any way. So, it is the perfect product for all people who do not like the sensation of the cream on the skin but are looking for something deeply nourishing and moisturizing, especially for dry skin and beyond. Similarly, we note the presence of mineral oils, synthetic additives, and parabenic preservatives. So, it’s not suitable for those looking for “green” products.
As deduced from user comments, it’s a nourishing face cream, perfect for people suffering from dry skin and looking for help to significantly reduce eye bags and wrinkles.
2. Wake Hydrating Eye Serum for Eye Bags
Eyewake Moisturizing Gel looks more like a serum than an eye cream.

This is an ecologically friendly eye contour gel, with ingredients mostly of natural origin strongly oriented towards anti-aging and stimulation of the subcutaneous circulation.
It’s made of several ingredients including Aloe Vera, cucumber extract, elderflower, as well as a good amount of vitamin E as an indispensable antioxidant. A few hours after use (perhaps wearing it in the evening before going to bed), it softens and hydrates the skin. In the eye contour area, the result stands out even more.
According to users, it’s an eye gel that freshens, revitalizes, the eye contour, reducing eye bags and puffiness. It’s however not very effective for lifting wrinkles or making dark circles disappear.
3. Eve Hansen Vitamin C Eye Gel
Eve Hansen AntiAging Cream is formulated with Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin E to drastically decrease the presence of bags and dark circles. It is based on the use of peptides, small sequences of amino acids (less than 50) that act as cellular messengers. They bind to cell receptors to perform certain functions.
In cosmetics, as in this case, they are used to “indicate to the cell” the action to be performed: repair the skin, tone, strengthen, lighten, stimulate, etc. In this case, they act as stimulants of blood circulation, to avoid the stagnation of liquids in the area at the base of the eyes.
Many users recommend it for deflating eye bags and decrease dark circles. After about 2 weeks of use, a few users say they started seeing great results.
4. Vichy – Lifactiv Eyes Supreme
LiftActiv Supreme from the Vichy laboratory is an anti-aging treatment for caring for the eye contour area. It was created to smooth and flatten wrinkles around the eye contour and eye bags. It’s made for adults with oily, dry, and normal skin types.
The formulation is based on three specific ingredients. First is Rhamnose, a plant with 100% natural sugar, with soothing and anti-aging properties, that can stimulate and moisturize the skin. Second is caffeine, known for its anti-wrinkle properties, but also useful to stimulate blood microcirculation, as well as excess liquid in the eye bags. And finally is escin, which has both a decongestant and a discreetly relaxing effect on the skin.
Close to 9 in 10 people who have used this product confirm that it works as expected. In a couple of weeks, the results are already visible, and there are several testimonies that say a few drops are sufficient for excellent results.

Night Repair is a TOP-level eye bag cream that can be used to remove puffs under the eyes. It can significantly reduce facial marks, fine lines, and dark circles. The consistency is very fluid. A drop spread around the eyes is enough to have the right effectiveness. The process involves a repair/relaxation of the skin at night, and it is better for the serum to work for many hours.

The best eye bag creams are great for reducing undereye puffs and wrinkles. While they can be used for treating the eye counter, note that, for many products, they are less effective as a solution against the purple and marked dark circles. On those of medium and low entity, it will certainly help, but on the more intense ones, it will not be able to completely solve the problem.
The eye bag creams are available in creams and serums. If serums work for you, we recommend the Simplified Hyaluronic Acid Serum and the Wake Hydrating Eye Serum for Eye Bags. The Mizon Eye Cream with 80% Snail Extract will be great for people with sensitive eye contour skin.
