TL;DR:
  • What It Is: A hydrating eye cream with hyaluronic acid
  • What It Does: Instantly moisturizes dry spots and disguises fine lines
  • Who It's For: All skin types

You know that feeling when you’ve finally been let in on a secret? It’s a mix of pride at graduating to the inside and a bit of “WTF, why didn’t you tell me sooner?!” That was my reaction when I first learned of the eye cream that millions of Korean shoppers love: AHC’s Eye Cream For Face. A tube of this best-selling eye cream is sold every three seconds, so it's clearly in high demand. In Korea, there’s even a new Eye Cream For Face every year (the AHC team is always finding new ingredients to up the moisturizing benefits), but this particular Essential Real Eye Cream For Face formula is a U.S. exclusive.

You're probably wondering: Isn't the idea of putting eye cream all over your face an oxymoron? Well, just imagine concentrated levels of hyaluronic acid in a tube that's double the size of your average eye cream, but around the same price. With that kind of value, there's no need to ration.

After putting on my vitamin C serum in the morning, I add a few drops of this rich cream under my eyes and in the marionette lines that seem to be deepening every day. Around my eyes, it soothes the ache of late nights watching Netflix and long days staring at the computer screen. On my forehead and smile lines, it keeps concealer from settling into the creases.

The AHC Essential Real Eye Cream For Face has become a daily must-have for me. I keep one tube in my bathroom and one in my travel bag. Since it was created to use on your entire face, I skip packing moisturizer and just use this multipurpose eye cream for all-over hydration. I've even been known to put it on my dry lips before applying lipstick when lip balm is in short supply.
