Top 5 Korean Eye Creams
Eye creams are designed especially to protect the thinnest and most sensitive skin on our faces. Why does this area need a special cream? Because in addition to being different than the rest of our skin, the skin around our eyes is also usually where the first signs of aging show up.
The skin around our eyes is around ten times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face. This means that our eye skin gets less of the benefits of our natural oils. Eye creams are formulated to care for this. In the care of Korean eye creams, they usually feature ingredients like Niacinamide, Peptides, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid.

Let's take a look at the best-selling Korean eye creams.
The number one selling eye cream on STYLE STORY is this anti-aging formula from APLB. Not only does it visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it also improves elasticity.
We love that this formula combines proven scientific skincare ingredients like collagen, niacinamide and peptides with natural eco-friendly ingredients like macadamia seed oil, beta glucan and sea buckthorn extract. It is beautifully hydrating and provides lasting moisture to dry, dull, damaged and aging skin.
We love this formula for dry and/or mature skin types.
Did we mention it is also double the quantity of regular eye creams?
Number two on the list is Innisfree Green Tea Seed Eye Cream. This formula for oily and combination skin types is great for skin in its 20s.
Firstly, it is packed with skin-loving amino acids and minerals. It also provides essential moisture. Plus, it leaves skin feeling hydrated and supple. Finally, Jeju Green Tea extract and Green Tea Seed Oil care for your skin gently.

To get the best results from your Kbeauty eye cream, lightly tap and massage the eye cream into your skin, making sure to give it enough time to fully absorb.
Although it’s tempting, don’t use too much cream each application. If you over-do it, you may end up with millia. These are unsightly little white dots caused by clogged pores from too much product.
