If you were to ask me for an affordable eye cream option a few months ago you would be disappointed with my answer. Maybe I’m overly critical, maybe I’m a skincare snob, but up until now I couldn’t find one I liked. We can finally put an end to that evil, I found a few under $50 worthy of suggesting!
I’ve heard fantastic things about Image Skincare but had never experienced the brand. Over the summer I visited a spa offering Image and was impressed with my facial, so I picked up a few eye creams. Image doesn’t break the bank, I can’t find a single product within the range over $100. If you’re looking for affordable, results-driven skincare give them a look.
Now the packaging isn’t anything special, it feels cheap and the top of one cream is wonky. But if it works, then who cares?!
Image Skincare Ageless Total Eye Lift Creme
A well rounded anti-aging eye cream that firms and improves texture with a retinol/glycolic blend. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles by resurfacing and hydrating with natural ingredients, providing smooth and brighter skin. Soothing chamomile, coneflower, and green tea calm tired eyes reducing puffiness. Sensitivity is a possibility since it uses a blend of retinol and glycolic acid, you might experience some peeling and redness. I didn’t, but that’s likely because my sensitive skin is used to certain ingredients. Supposedly helps with dark circles but I didn’t notice a change. However, it performed well in other areas. Ideal for aging, wrinkled, and eyes with loose skin.

Image Skincare The Max Stem Cell Eye Creme
Loaded with plant stem cells, peptides, and antioxidants this cream’s got it all to plump, depuff, and rejuvenate the eye area. Natural ingredients and hydrators brighten tired eyes with growth factors, increasing cellular activity, protecting skin from damaging free radicals, and reduces signs of aging. Your wrinkles will diminish, your eyes will appear brighter and hydrated, and dark circles, inflammation, and puffiness will be reduced. It really covers most concerns when it comes to the eyes. Max Stem Cell does what it says it will, and it was my favorite of the two creams. Ideal for aging, dry, and sensitive eye areas.
