Top Eye-Brightening Beauty Products Under £10

Eye Bright

We all know that after a late night or a long day at work, we can look tired and haggard. Whilst it’s not always easy to get to bed early; with these simple and affordable beauty products, you can create the look of bright, rejuvenated eyes.

Garnier Eye Roll On £5.08, Superdrug

The Garnier Eye Roll-On was revolutionary when it was first released as the product’s new application was unlike the simple creams and lotions before it. The cool roller ball glides across the under-eye area for a soothing, hydrating finish. For tired, puffy eyes, the roll-on offers a revitalising boost. Since the product’s first release, Garnier has extended its range to include a caffeine-enriched roll-on and a concealing roll-on. Caffeine is a natural anti-inflammatory, making it ideally suited to soothing puffy eyes. As for the concealing roll-on, this is a great two-in-one product because it eliminates the need for an eye concealer to cover up darker skin pigmentation. Available in a choice of skin shades, this is the perfect morning eye boost which won’t hurt your wallet.

GOSH Kohl Eyeliner White £4.49, Superdrug

White eyeliner is a simple trick you may not have considered when planning your daily beauty routine. But before you reach for your smokey dark pencil or black liquid liner, it may be worth considering using a white liner (especially on the waterline) for subtle highlighting and brightening of dark eye areas. Make-up artists love sending their models down the catwalk with striking white liner around the lower and upper lash lines. But if you’re looking for a more subtle brightening effect, using this white liner in the inner and outer corners of your eye will lighten the darkest areas, making your eyes look wider and brighter. For just £4.49, this GOSH liner is a great buy and the soft texture makes it easy to apply in a rush.

Eau Thermale Avene Soothing Eye Cream Contour Cream- £9.50, Boots

For £9.50, this soothing eye cream is pushing the £10 limit but it is certainly worth a try. Unlike some eye creams which are simply light facial moisturisers, the Eau Thermale Avene cream has been specifically formulated to gently protect the delicate eye area. The ingredients include soothing alpha-bisabolol to counteract redness and irritation. The hypo-allergenic qualities of the dextran sulphate helps to relieve sensitive eyelids. The product itself is lightweight and ultra-hydrating. Although it is available in just 10ml bottles, a little dab of this product goes a long way and you’ll soon find it an essential on your beauty shopping list.

Optrex Eyedew Sparkling Eye Drops- £4.25, Boots

These sparkling eye drops have been marketed as party drops to make your eyes glitter on special occasions. However, the gentle formula works to hydrate dry, tired eyes and remove redness for clear, bright eyes all day long. It is recommended that you add just 1-2 drops into each eye to see the effects. If you feel as though your eyes feel tired, dry and irritated, the instant hydration of eye drops could be an ideal solution. At just £4.25, these are some of the most affordable eye drops available to buy and are definitely worth an investment. It is worth remembering that these are not designed for contact lenses so if you are a contact lens-wearer, you should choose drops specially designed for this to avoid damaging the lenses.

Try these purse-friendly beauty products for an instant boost to conceal tired eyes and give a wide-awake, rejuvenated look every day.
