5 Alternatives to Retinol Eye Creams for Dark Circles, Wrinkles and More!

Best Korean Eye Creams

Feeling exhausted after a long day? Or not getting enough sleep and waking up tired? Fatigue is always visible through the look of your eyes, especially the skin area surrounding your eyes. Dark circles, sagging eye skin, fine lines and wrinkles... if you suffer from any of these, you may be in need of more hydrating and less irritating alternatives to the regular retinol eye cream. That's why we are here to recommend a couple of soothing and nourishing eye care solutions, not only to help you look but also FEEL energized!


MEDI-PEEL Mezzo Filla Eye Serum

MEDI-PEEL Mezzo Filla Eye Serum

A luxurious eye treatment that melts into the eye area to reduce the signs of aging for healthy-looking skin.

This eye serum is an all skin-type anti-wrinkle eye treatment that contains peptides, multiple patented ingredients including anti-oxidant and wrinkle-care ingredients.

The product is expelled through a pump and has an iridescent, gel-like texture. Highly concentrated peptide-melting threads called “PHA” contained in capsules deliver firmness into loose eye areas once melted into the skin. Additionally, this eye serum easily absorbs into the skin to brighten dark circles, improve uneven texture, firm and improve elasticity around the eyes.

This eye cream not only has a cool iridescent and sparkly sheen to it, it brings satisfaction when the little capsules dissolve as you’re applying it around the eyes. A while after applying it, I noticed a tightening effect around the eyes and a reduced amount of fine lines when I smiled. I’ve also noticed that my dark circles have reduced after usage, I'm totally impressed by the detoxing power of this eye serum.

MEDI-PEEL Eye Tox Cream

MEDI-PEEL Eye Tox Cream

This Eye Tox Cream is designed to care for wrinkled, sagging eye skin and dark circles.

The best feature of this cream is that it deeply hydrates dehydrated areas around the eyes and is a versatile cream that targets all kinds of eye area problems. These include fine lines and wrinkles, elasticity issues, puffiness, dark under-eyes and sagging skin. Additionally, this eye cream contains Botox-like ingredients including Acetylhexapeptide-8, to tighten up wrinkles, increase skin elasticity, keep moisture locked in and help strengthen up skin tissues with collagen.

For me, this is my go-to solution to combat dark circles and puffiness in the morning. Not only did it help reduce puffiness around my eyes, it also reduced the fine lines under my eyes. It was deeply hydrating despite being lightweight.

MEDI-PEEL Peptide9 Hyaluronic Volumy Eye Cream

MEDI-PEEL Peptide9 Hyaluronic Volumy Eye Cream

This Volumy Eye Cream is a multi-purpose formula infused with collagen and hyaluronic acid to enhance elasticity and offer intense hydration. These help fade the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while resetting tired, dry skin. The product also features active ingredients including 9 types of Peptides to provide rich nutrients including protein to revitalise the skin.

Although the texture is a bit too stringy for me, the results on my fine lines and wrinkles make it all worth it! It makes my eyes look revitalised and a lot less tired. If you are not too bothered about texture and want an effective cream for dull under-eyes, I would highly recommend!

Cosnori Avocado Eye Cream

The avocado eye cream by Cosnori contains organic Avocado oil which is rich in vitamins and nutrients to protect the skin against harmful external pollutants AND provide moisture and nourishment to dry and sensitive skin. Additionally, this cream contains 66.9% rice extract to help control sebum production and maintain the oil-water balance in the skin. This cream absorbs quickly, excludes 20 allergy-causing ingredients, is perfect for irritant-prone skin and can even be used all over the face.

I personally enjoy this eye cream a lot as it’s versatile and can be used all over the face. Its sleek packaging is convenient so I can use it wherever and whenever my skin feels dry. It also doesn’t irritate my sensitive combination skin and feels very lightweight.

The Shangpree S Energy Repair Eye Cream is a silky, long-lasting eye cream formulated with a herb blend of 5 herbs , including lavender, sage, oregano, spearmint and bergamot, which are known for their skin-clearing and calming properties. The eye cream has a delicate aroma which helps calm the mind and body.
