The Best Clean Eye Creams for Every Budget

An eye cream is considered to be an essential skincare item once you reach around thirty. This is because the delicate, paper-thin skin around your eyes is the first area to get fine lines. This skin needs a lighter cream than the rest of your face, so it doesn’t go puffy. Read on for my guide to the best clean eye creams for all budgets.

4 of The Best Clean Eye Creams for Every Budget

As a clean beauty convert, I have tried many eye creams. Because natural beauty products don’t contain loads of chemical fillers, they are more expensive than regular high street beauty products. But that also means they last longer and don’t put nasty chemicals into your skin. So for me, that’s a trade off I’m more than willing to make.

I have ordered these best clean eye creams by price per ml. Although the Mossa eye cream is cleaner than the Antipodes one, you get half the amount, so Antipodes is actually cheaper per ml.

I’ve tested a few more affordable skincare ranges, which don’t contain a cocktail of chemicals, and found they can work just as well as the more expensive brands I have also tested. Read on to find out more about these excellent clean eye creams.

Best Clean Eye Creams: Low Budget

Laidbare Pack Your Bags Lighten & Tighten Eye Cream, £7.99 for 30ml

Just because this Laidbare clean eye cream only costs £7.99, don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s no good. It’s really effective and a little goes a long way, making it one of the best clean eye creams I’ve used.

Laidbare says it “contains buckwheat wax; an incredible ingredient to help reduce puffiness and dark circles, shea butter hydrates and eyebright helps reduce the appearance of redness and brightens the skin.”

This eye cream makes a great make-up base, and has never stung my eyes. You can even feel it working, with a slight tightening effect.

Best Clean Eye Creams: Medium Budget

Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream, £24.99 for 30ml

My all time favourite natural and clean eye cream is this one from Antipodes skincare. You can read my initial thoughts on this eye cream in my Antipodes brand review. Since writing that, I used the eye cream every night until it ran out: I really think it made a difference to my fine wrinkles and dark circles.

Antipodes say it’s “a luscious yet light eye cream that provides a cooling and soothing sensory experience. Super rich vitamin C from the seed of the New Zealand kiwi works superbly to repair damaged tissue.”

Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream

It’s clinically shown to stimulate synthesis of collagen product in human skin cells by up to 82%. With avocado oil, carrot seed and potent vitamin C from kiwi seed oil, it’s a rich, refreshing eye cream perfect for night use.

At £24.99, this may seem like a lot to spend on a natural eye cream, but it does really work and a little goes a long way. This jar lasted about six months, and was recycled when it was empty. You can read about other Antipodes skincare favourites here.

Ingredients: Aqua (water), Persea gratissima (avocado) oil, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol (coconut derived), cetearyl wheat straw glycosides, stearic acid (vegetable), glyceryl stearate, tocopherol (Vitamin E), Daucus carota sativa (carrot seed) oil, Actinidia chinensis (kiwifruit seed) oil, Borago officinalis (borage) oil, gluconolactone, sodium benzoate, calcium gluconate, Vitis vinifera (Vinanza® Grape grape seed) extract.

Mossa Certified Natural Firming Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream, £16 for 15ml

French organic skincare range Mossa has a great clean eye cream for £16* with lot of active, organic ingredients and is made from 100% natural ingredients. Mossa organic skincare is a Latvian brand, and their hero ingredient is ECOCERT certified Nordic berries.

Mossa say it’s a “certified natural wrinkle smoothing eye cream with black elder antioxidant to intensively repair the skin. Natural biopolymers efficiently promote the filling of wrinkles and smooth the skin in the eye area.”

The eye cream is of medium consistency, feeling light enough to wear beneath eye make-up without being greasy. This eye cream smells a little peculiar at first, but that soon fades.

It comes in an airlock pump container, which is ideal for products without synthetic preservatives, as it keeps it fresh. The other benefit is that they won’t get contaminated by bacteria on your fingers, as products can when they are in tubs.

This clean eye cream is recommended for late 30s upwards but they also do a presumably less powerful eye cream for £12.99 which is for early stages of ageing. You can read about other Mossa favourites of mine here.

Ingredients: Aqua, Alcohol, Glycerin***, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Decyl Cocoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Rosa Canina (Rose-hip) Fruit Extract*, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse-chestnut) Seed Extract*, Sodium PCA, Cellulose, Sambucus Nigra (Elder) Fruit Extract*, Squalane, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Ācid, Chitin, Beta-glucan, Aroma, Xanthan Gum, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Bean Oil*, Sodium Phytate, Lactic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Linalool**, Limonene**, Benzyl Salicylate** * Ingredients from Organic Farming / ** Natural essential oils / *** Made using organic ingredients. 100% of the total ingredients are from natural origin / 5% of the total ingredients are from Organic Farming.

Best Clean Eye Creams: High Budget

Dafna’s Skincare Eye Care Repair & Revitalise, £50 for 20ml

This is the most expensive of my roundup of the best clean eye creams, and it’s a real treat. This clean eye cream won the ‘Beauty Shortlist Editors Choice Award in 2016. Dafna’s say “regular use will enhance a natural skin tightening effect in the eyes contour, reduce dark circles, puffiness and fine lines” and I have found this to be true.

DAFNAS'S Eye Care Repair & Revitalise clean eye cream review

This clean eye cream is packed with a cocktail of potent actives, such as chicory root oligosaccharides and hydrolyzed soy protein, which enhance production and systhesis of collagen. It also contains rosehip oil and calendula extract to reduce the look of fine lines and reduce puffiness.

You only need the tiniest dot, it’s really smooth, with a serum-like consistency, and sinks in like a dream. I’ve been using it every evening for well over 6 months and there is still a little left. The glass pump bottle keeps it fresh, and will be recycled when it’s empty. It also looks pretty gorgeous on my bedside table. At £50, it’s more of a blow-the-budget treat, but it does work.

Ingredients: Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract*, Glycerin, Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Calendula Officinalis Extract*, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein Extract, Cichorium Intybus (Chicory) Root Oligosaccharides, Caesalpinia Spinosa Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Tocopherol, Gluconolactone, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Linalool, Geraniol, Citronellol, Citral. * Organic active ingredient with Bio certification

    Thanks for these ideas, i reacted to no.7 eye cream that i was recommended, it dried my skin out so much i had to use sudocream on them to stop the red blotches and itchy dry skin. It was awful! I normally use the simple range.

      Rachel that sounds awful! I think you’re right to avoid that and use something purer xx

    This is a very useful guide, thank you. I love Antipodes products and currently I am using their face cream and I’ve heard some good things about their eye cream already so this is definitely something I am going to get myself in the future. Really useful post, will share it on my social media!

      Thanks so much Petra, I love it, I may try Antipodes’ other one next just in case it’s even better! Xx
