I've put together a list of the best eye creams with broad spectrum SPF in them as they are the ones that are truly anti-ageing. If you have any questions please ask away and I will help if I can.

I don't get it, I thought that the products I used ordinarily were good enough and that there was absolutely no need for a separate eye cream??

I am not clicking on that link as I suspect there is some advertising revenue for you whenever anyone does that.

Thought the bloggers network was for interesting blogs, not for advertising commercial products? You might have got together some eye creams with SPF in them but I want to see reviews from actual users before I'd buy anything.

Flibberyjibbet - I have tested 3 of the products I have featured and throughly researched the ingredients of the rest. The reviews are balanced i.e not all entirely positive. My blog contains no affiliate links and I haven't earned a penny from it. It is just something I do because it interests me.

You're facts are incorrect and I think it's unfair to accuse me of doing something unethical without knowing anything about my blog.

RonaldMcDonald - A lot of people use the products for their face around their eyes and if that works for you there's no reason to stop. I think eye creams in some brands have a very similar formula to their face creams but they just put them in a smaller pot and charge more per ml for them.
However, some face creams can be too rich to put around the eyes and can cause puffiness. I prefer eye creams that contain ingredients to help with puffiness and dark circles, even if it just has a Cinderella effect.
Further, I find a moisturiser with SPF or a plain SPF irritating if I put it any where near my eyes but a dedicated eye cream SPF doesn't.
Hope that helps.

Flibbertyjibbet - Having looked how I've phrased the thread title I admit it does come across a bit like a bad advert so sorry for giving the wrong impression.
I'm quite new to blogging and I was just trying to generate some interest in my blog.
Also, SPF skincare is my pet subject and I know that using it and being clued about it is the best way to slow down skin ageing. It's also something that can be done without spending huge amounts. I'm just trying to pass that message and I'm sorry again for the naff thread title.

Are you suggesting then that the SPFs used in eye creams are somehow different than the SPFs used generally?

Also what are the ingredients in these recommended eye products that reduce puffiness or reduce dark shadows?

Maybe the reason for the differences I've experienced is that I used a moisturiser with a chemical sunscreen around my eyes which caused irritation and the spf eye cream had mainly mineral or physical sunscreen.

In the post I've listed the sunscreen ingredient, whether it is chemical or mineral and which type of rays that ingredient protects against. I hope this helps people decide which, if any, product, is right for them.

I've put the ingredients that have an 'anti-ageing' effect in the post. As I said I think a 'Cinderella effect' plays a large part and a lot of people are happy just with that. I only say that something is effective if I can personally vouch it or have seen the clinical data and if not I say the 'brand claim'.
