Ah, the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is back in our lives and we couldn’t be more excited. This year, we’re looking forward to some of our favorite brands being discounted like Supergoop, La Mer, and even Dyson hair tools.
That said, we’ll be stocking up on the categories that we find ourselves running low on more often than others like eye creams. Lucky for us, the 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is stocked with eye creams that target all concerns like dark circles, puffiness, and even restless nights. (We’ve all been there.) Below, we pulled our favorite eye creams to shop before the sale ends on August 6.
Our Top Picks:
- Best Overall: Clarins Total Eye Lift Eye Cream Set, $122
- Best for Dark Circles: Arcona Eye Dew Plus Corrective Eye Serum Duo, $129
- Best Value: Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado Home & Away Set, $62
- Best for Mature Eyes: Kate Somerville Kateceuticals Lifting Eye Cream, $98
Best Overall: Clarins Total Eye Lift Eye Cream
Clarins Total Eye Lift Eye Cream is the epitome of an all-in-one eye treatment. Harungana extract, a retinol alternative, lessens the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet as it gently plumps and firms the eye area. The formula also contains caffeine, which reduces dark circles and combats puffiness. The only thing better than one of these powerful balms is two — which is exactly what Nordstrom is offering at a discount during its Anniversary Sale.
Best for Dark Circles: Arcona Eye Dew Plus Corrective Eye Serum Duo
Although Arcona’s Eye Dew Plus Corrective Eye Serum is packed with actives that tackle fine lines and loss of elasticity, its eye-brightening benefits can’t be ignored. The combination of hydrating ceramides and refreshing vitamin C kicks dark circles to the curb for a refreshed look. Save $67 on a two-pack during this Nordstrom sale and let this corrective serum work its magic.
Best Value: Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado Home & Away Set
Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is a beloved eye cream that you’ve probably spotted in at least one medicine cabinet in your lifetime. And for good reason — this rich avocado oil-based formula nourishes under eyes while still being gentle enough that it won’t irritate the area’s fragile skin. This Nordstrom-exclusive set comes with a full- and travel-size jar for just $2 more than the price of one regular unit.
Best for Mature Eyes: Kate Somerville Kateceuticals Lifting Eye Cream
Peptides are the star of Kate Somerville’s Kateceuticals Lifting Eye Cream. Its triple-peptide complex restores firmness to the eye area, which helps smooth crow’s feet and fine lines and softens their appearance. The supporting cast of ingredients is also top-notch — brightening vitamin C, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and soothing cucumber extract — to name a few.
Best Refillable: Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue Forever Set
If you love Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream Moisturizer — or Charlotte Tilbury in general — Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is your chance to get your hands on the matching eye cream. The Magic Eye Rescue Forever Set comes with a full-size of the restorative eye cream with retinol, and a refill pod for when you inevitably decide you can’t live without it.
Best for Travel: Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Skin Care Set
We love a TSA-approved beauty product here at Allure, and this kit from Bobbi Brown is a frequent flyer’s dream. Sail through security check with this 0.51-ounce jar of Bobbi Brown’s Extra Repair Eye Cream Intense in your carry-on luggage, and enjoy dupuffed under eyes and minimized dark circles for your entire trip. The best part? The full-size Extra Repair Moisture Cream Intense rounds out this hydrating routine and can also join you on your journey.
Best Hydrating: It Cosmetics Confidence in an Eye Cream Peptide Eye Cream
For those prone to dry under eyes, the It Cosmetics Confidence in an Eye Cream Peptide Eye Cream is a miracle in a jar. This balmy eye cream imparts 48 hours of hydration to keep the sensitive eye area comfortable all day long. It also contains a 2% peptide complex that works to improve the look of crow’s feet and dark circles over time.
Best Diffusing: MAC Fast Response Eye Cream
If you thought the only Nordstrom Anniversary sales on MAC products would be on makeup, think again. Some of the iconic makeup brand’s powerful skin care is also on sale, including the Fast Response Eye Cream. Apply this lightweight gel cream to the eye area in the morning to tighten, brighten, and diffuse fine lines and under eye discoloration.
