All About The Eyes
Earlier this week we were all about face serums and today we are all about the eyes. It’s no secret the Wren and Wild team loves a good skin serum for their ability to target specific needs and elevate a skin routine when we are feeling less than our glowy, dewy selves. But, “do I need an eye cream too” is one of the most common questions we get in the store. So we checked in with the experts.
The queen of green, Tata Harper, is adamant about taking care of the eyes. “As the skin around your eyes is the most fragile, it’s where you’ll first start seeing signs of aging,” says Team Tata. “It’s the first anti-aging product that Tata recommends when you’re looking to preserve a youthful complexion — starting in your 20’s. Eye creams also help to deal with signs of fatigue that arise from lack of sleep, staring at a screen all day, and a lot of other factors that’ll result in dark circles, dryness, sagging, and wrinkles.” We do love our Tata eyes:
Tata Harper Restorative Eye Cream is a refillable, multi-correctional eye cream that brightens, smooths, depuffs, and hydrates to rejuvenate signs of aging and fatigue. It’s fabulous for fine lines, dryness, under eye bags, and dark circles. Run Out. Refill. Reuse!
Need a little something more? Didn’t start on the eye cream trend in your 20’s? No worries, Tata’s Elixir Vitae Eye Serum is for you. This formula is the ultimate pro-aging eye treatment.
Tata isn’t the only queen obsessed with the eyes, Dr. Barbara Sturm, a German aesthetics doctor, widely renowned for her anti-inflammatory philosophy, has an Eye Cream that our team is fangirling. Put this lightweight cream on and you will notice an instant tightening effect minimizing the look of wrinkles and puffiness.
We hear from a lot of you beauties and understand you're not always loving a cream under your eyes and want something to instantly awaken those tired peepers. For this, we recommend more of a gel based eye serum. Ocean Eyes from Osea and Love & Eyebright from One Love Organics are a wake-up call for eyes and both are delivered to the delicate area by roller ball offering a cooling effect. Good morning!
Kate, our makeup artist extraordinaire insists on the perfect primer under the eyes for your concealer to sit seamlessly. Her go-to is our beloved Berlin Skin’s Cocoa Eye Butter. Packed full of cocoa butter, vitamin c, chamomile, gotu kola and carrot seed, this velvety texture has the ability to keep the skin dewy day and night.
No time in the morning? Want to wake up fresh and ready to go? Dream Cream is so effective that it works to visibly smooth the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles, firm the look of skin, and actively hydrate while you catch your zzz's.
I think we all agree, an eye cream or eye serum is heaven for the tender area around the eye to hydrate, depuff, firm and bring back that youthful glow. Which is right for you? Let us help you find your perfect match and get those bright eyes sparkling!
