CHEAP & CHEERFUL EDITION: eye treatments

Don't get me wrong, there is something to be said for a glossy black Chanel compact of pressed powder or the feeling of opening a new magical serum you bought from your facialist. But at 10pm, when beauty cravings hit and nothing is open expect your trusty 24 hour Duane Reade, there are some little treasures to be found, all under $20. 

CeraVe makes some excellent creams, and their newest fragrance free eye cream is no exception. It's hydrating without feeling greasy and contains ingredients like hyaluronic and niacinamide to help the eye area look healthier while reducing signs of aging. And it can be yours for $12.99! 

Garnier's green packaging isn't my favorite, but it's whats inside that counts. Their Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller has a little roller ball on the end so you can smush it around to help de-puff and leave a subtle shimmer of superstar hyaluronic acid and notable antioxidants. Fun to use and only $13.49.

Yes to Blueberries, that brand I'm sure you have seen and wondered about makes a richly textured eye cream called Age Refresh Eye Firming Treatment with a nice mix of antioxidants and emollients for just $19.95 

Last, but certainly not least, is my favorite drugstore brand, Olay. This is another state of the art formula from them for $29. Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl is spiked with peptides and other helpful ingredients and gives the tiniest natural light diffusing effect.
