Best Korean Eye Cream 2023
A beautiful eye makes silence eloquent
The eyes are a reflection of the soul and as much as we dislike it, it is where the very first visible signs of aging begin to show. This is because the skin around your eyes are the thinnest and most delicate in your entire body, there are also fewer oil ducts which makes it more prone to wrinkles and fine lines. Apart from that, our skin naturally gets thinner as we age which is often worsened by prolonged exposure to the sun, certain medications and medical conditions or even environmental stressors. Therefore, the skin loses elasticity over time, leading to the formation of these unwanted fine lines and wrinkles.
Luckily, there are numerous ways to prevent premature aging of your skin by using the right eye care products for your skin and combat other issues such as puffiness and dark circles. With so many different eye creams promising visible results, how do I choose the best Korean eye cream for my skin? What is a good Korean eye cream? That’s what we are here for! We are here to help you select the best products to maintain that youthful sparkle in your eyes! Get ready to splurge on some of our favourite eye care products of all time!

BONIIK's Tips for Effective Eye Care
So, when is the best time to start using eye cream? You can start incorporating eye creams into your Korean skincare routines as early as your 20s, to ensure that your skin remains youthful-looking and firm. As you enter your 30s, collagen production starts to slow down and aging signs like fine lines will start to become more apparent especially around your eyes. Therefore, incorporating Korean eye care products in both your day time and night time skincare routines is highly recommended!
A few common questions that we get include how much eye cream should I be using? What is the best method of applying eye creams? A little goes a long way, all you need is a pea-sized amount and using your ring finger to gently dab the cream around your eyes, without tugging or pulling it. Allow your eye cream to penetrate into your skin for about a minute or two before applying your moisturizer.
There you go! Yes it is true that one glance speaks a lot about you, it does not have to reveal your age. And the secret lies in selecting the right products for your skin’s needs! Explore the rest of BONIIK-approved eye care products below!
