best natural eye creams with organic ingredients

My Fave Natural Eye Creams, Serums & Eye Masks

I’ve tested toooons of eye creams in clean beauty and I’m comparing and sharing my favorites in today’s guide!

non toxic eye creams for dark circles and wrinkles

Most clean eye creams are useless unless they have a real purpose. But if you’re curious to know which eye products I actually trust, I’ve rounded up my favorite natural and organic eye creams, serums and oils that are made with clean ingredients. These eye creams aren’t just glorified moisturizers and can help with wrinkles, crows feet, dark circles, and more.

The skin around the eyes is the first to give away our age as it’s so much thinner than the rest of our faces — plus it loses moisture 50% faster than the rest of our skin. From our teenage years we develop dark circles and puffiness from late nights studying, and as we age, we develop wrinkles, dryness and saggy bags. My personal favorite, the hollowing of the under eyes that’s genetic and can only be fixed with cosmetic procedures.

My personal opinion is that majority of eye creams are just glorified moisturizers packaged in smaller jars. I do think that using your nicest face cream or oil is going to do the same, if not better, than your standard eye cream. But still, there are some great eye products on the market formulated with special actives that the delicate eye area might need.

I prefer to use eye serums as serums are formulated to penetrate and deliver actives, or to go the other extreme of using highly occlusive eye oils or balms. Also, eye masks are life and I couldn’t live without them!

innbeauty project eye cream

INNBEAUTY Project Bright & Tight Eye Cream (best eye primer!)

I always get asked for clean eye primer recommendations, because there just aren’t clean beauty brands making eye primers and I FINAAAALLY have a recommendation I can stand behind! Innbeauty Project’s most recent launch is not just a fantastic eye cream, it’s also an effective eye primer. It really does work! This is absolutely PACKED with actives. It has: 3 types of Vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, ascorbyl glucoside, & 3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid), 3% Tranexamic Acid to brighten dark circles, Bakuchiol, Peptides, NovoRetin, Caffeine, Cedar Bark. I apply it on the top lid too because it feels and works like an eyelid primer for my makeup. Feels light yet moisturizing and helps smooth out and brighten the eye area with dare I say a tiny bit of coverage.

Best for: Dark circles, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles

three ships beauty eye cream vitamin c caffeine for dark circles

Three Ships First Light Vitamin C + Caffeine Eye Cream

This is a very light cream that has a simple natural and vegan formula (and they’re EWG verified!). The formula is sooo light that it tends to spill out easily and really only needs the slightest squeeze.  The Acerola Cherry has 50-100x more Vitamin C than oranges or lemons to help brighten dark circles and caffeine extract has high concentrations of polyphenols and tocopherols along with palmitic acid and linoleic acid to strengthen the skin barrier. Looove the cooling ceramic tip to apply it without having to use my fingers – very sanitary and soothing!

beekman 1802 mushroom milk better aging eye cream

Beekman 1802 Mushroom Milk Better Aging Eye Cream

I’m in looove with the texture of this milky eye cream – it’s just so so creamy but also very light and kind of whipped? Something about the milk has me convinced it helps with brightening. I’m a DIY lover so anything milk or yogurt I KNOW is great for brightening and tightening. This is surprisingly pretty expensive so that is its major downside. It does contain a great number of actives like 5% Hexapeptide, Goat Milk, Lions Mane (for crow’s feet), Snow Mushroom (to cool and depuff undereye bags), Reishi Mushroom (to lift and firm), Kojic Acid Fungi Ferment (to brighten dark circles), and Sclerotium Fungi to hydrate.

Best for: dark circles, fine lines & wrinkles

osea ocean eyes treatment

OSEA Ocean Eyes Age-Defying Serum

This feels super refreshing and cooling thanks to metal roller ball applicator. The serum is actually a liquid and feels super duper light. I consider this a hydrating boost for the eyes that’s great if you don’t like eye creams. I wouldn’t consider this a heavy duty eye product that can tackle serious signs of aging like deep wrinkles. I love that it’s still got plenty of actives like Undaria and red algae, Caffeine, hyaluronic acid, biomimetic tetrapeptide, and a bark and plant extract.

Best for: dark circles, fine lines, puffiness and crow’s feet
