No skincare routine is complete without an eye cream. Delicate eye area requires special attention and therefore special products. New technologies tackle different skin concerns from puffiness and dark circles, to fine lines and wrinkles. This is why every skincare brand on the market offers a variety of eye creams. It goes without saying, that it is extremely important to choose a brand which cares about animal welfare and environment, and offers cruelty free cosmetics, including cruelty free eye creams.

Cruelty Free UK shortlisted 10 cruelty free eye creams, all widely available in the UK and worldwide. What we were looking for are the creams which deliver results, without compromises. We only selected the brands which do not test on animals in 2020, many of these brands are vegan or offer a wide range of vegan products. All these brands also aim to use only recycled and recyclable packaging where possible.
