Cream or Gels
Let’s simplify –
Creams are an excellent delivery source of hydration generally through an oil base, they are able to lock in moisture and keep skin from drying out. Add a few anti-aging ingredients or collagen boosting elements and you will have an eye treatment for normal to combination skin to ward off those pesky lines and wrinkles for as long as humanly possible.
Gels are a lighter liquid substance soothing to the touch especially for tired eyes. Serums and gels do not use oils, instead other encapsulators like water or silicone are used to hold in the ingredients. So, if you have oilier skin they are a good option for you. They can help reduce inflammation and with added ingredients help brighten skin tone which is great for dark circles or any discoloration.
Being concerned about which type of product shouldn’t be your main concern, they both have benefits. Instead think about what type of skin you have and what you want to tackle first and the right product will present itself.
