These three eye creams are tried and tested by our editors


Missing a tailored step for the delicate skin around your eyes is one of the most common skincare mistakes. Concerns for this area include puffy skin, dark circles and fine lines and wrinkles, and the perfect product for you will depend on your individual needs. To help you find the right eye cream for your skin type, we’ve teamed up with Chantecaille to produce a tried and tested guide to three of their best-sellers. 

Find The Best Eye Cream For Your Skin Type

Struggling to find the right eye cream for you? Three Country & Town House staffers tested out three Chantecaille eye creams to suit their needs. Here’s how they got on…

Chantecaille Bio Lifting Eye Cream

Skin concerns: dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles

As I approach my late 30s I’ve noticed my skin has become dryer and my smile lines sometimes outlast my smiles. Because I’ve spent a lot of my working life trying out different skincare products, I’ve struggled to find an eye cream that works for me that I can be consistent with. I don’t like anything too heavy (even though my skin might need it!), so the rich but light Bio Lifting Eye Cream formula is perfect for me. After two weeks of using it every day the skin around my eyes feels smoother, softer and firmer. And I think I have a little more give for laughter lines, which is key, since I spend most of my time with a very sarcastic eight-year-old. Chantecaille Bio Lifting Eye Cream (15ml) | Harrods UK

Skin concerns: dark circles, puffy eye bags

Being a self-confessed night owl, I’m no stranger to the occasional pair of dark circles. I’m also prone to puffiness under my eyes, especially first thing in the morning when I’ve just woken up, so something like Chantecaille’s Gold Energizing Eye Serum ticks a lot of boxes for me. Chantecaille uses various plant stem cell extracts to target a number of issues, from irritation and fine lines to fatigue and dullness, making it a multi-purpose hero product for your washbag. Using a cooling gold roller ball applicator (a life saver during the unpredictable British summer), the serum delivers a soothing blanket to the skin beneath your eyes that leaves you feeling refreshed throughout the day. I’m a few weeks in with the serum, using it day and night, and have noticed that my puffiness is a lot less noticeable after a quick swipe with the roller. As for the dark circles, regular use of the serum has significantly softened their appearance – and any lingering shadow can easily be covered up with the help of Chantecaille’s Le Camouflage Stylo concealer.

Chantecaille Rose de Mai Eye Lift

Skin concerns: puffy eyes, dry skin

Every morning, the mirror greets me with a pair of puffy eyes in need of cooling, so the Zamac applicator on the Chantecaille Rose de Mai Eye Lift alone is a draw. This supremely cooling massage tool, combined with the mono dose button issuing the ideal amount of product, makes swiping the silky eye gel across my under-eyes a delightful, cooling breeze (perfect for a morning revitalisation, or for nighttime cool downs in the recent muggy weather). The ultra smooth formula is infused with botanicals and packed with a billion tiny microcapsules of oil peppered through Rose de Mai water, providing an instant lift, while reducing puffiness, dark circles and fine lines, which all contribute to signs of eye ageing. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and swear by that morning lift – the quickest reduction of puffiness I’ve found. Plus, my eyes are visibly brighter, my dark circles dwindling away with every application. Rose de Mai Eye Lift – Chantecaille UK
