A good eye cream is like the magic potion you always wished you had, but could never actually create yourself—it moisturizes and smoothes your skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightens, color-corrects, and tones down puffiness (but, ya know, that's it). Contrary to popular belief, eye cream is not just for older skin, because the benefits live on such a broad spectrum. Although that being said, some eye creams are better for certain things than others. The same product you would want for color-correcting may not be the best choice for heavy moisturizing needs. That is why we have rounded up our Top 10 eye creams under $50, featuring a range of benefits that are worth investing in, all at an attainable price point for you. Opening image: dermstore.com
