Eye Serums: The Lightweight Solution For Layering Under Your Eye Cream

These lightweight eye serums are the secret weapons in our beauty arsenal to fight all our peeper problems.

Like their facial counterparts, eye serums tend to be formulated with more potent ingredients and made with smaller molecules that allow them to penetrate deeper into your skin for faster-working action and more intensive results. 

However, that doesn’t mean you should be ditching your eye creams, which help to hydrate your delicate eye area and create a protective film to prevent moisture loss.

If you’re worried about applying too many products near your peepers, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of the best lightweight eye serums that get absorbed effortlessly and won’t leave any sticky residue, making them perfect for layering under your favourite eye cream. 

Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Eye Serum, $120
This watery serum helps to hydrate and nourish the delicate skin around your eyes to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It has a cooling ceramic applicator to help to depuff and brighten the eye area and leave you looking refreshed and revitalised. Shiseido Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate, $105
This has a blend of botanicals like skin regenerating Reishi mushroom and energising iris extract to strengthen your delicate eye area and fight stress. It also has a Smoothing Defense Complex that acts like a shield to protect against friction, and hydrating ingredients to moisturise and plump. Skyn Iceland Brightening Eye Serum, $59
This helps to jump-start skin’s repair process using a cocktail of powerhouse peptides, algae extracts and antioxidants designed to target and treat signs of ageing like fine lines, puffiness, dullness and sagging around the eyes. It even has a Targeted Wrinkle Inhibitor and a Bioactive Complex to naturally relax muscles and reduce expression lines for a more rested look. Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Invigorating Eye Serum, $370

Great for treating dark circles and dullness, it helps to stimulate circulation, boost hydration and soften fine lines and wrinkles. Arcona Peptide Eye Serum, $71
This is infused with a unique collagen-building complex of amino peptides that is said to help increase the elasticity of thinning skin, as well as regenerate and retexturise your delicate eye area to reduce the appearance of fine lines for a visibly smoother, more supple complexion. The Inkey List Caffeine Under Eye Serum, $18
This serum is infused with coffee extract and antixoidants to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines, as well as fight free radical damage. As caffeine is a diuretic, this also works to relieve water retention to treat puffiness.
