Eye cream is a grooming essential for helping men firm the skin around the eyes, helping it to look fresher and less tired.

In this post, we explain when you should start using an eye cream and what to look for when choosing an eye cream for men.

Read on to discover our favourite UK eye cream for men which is even suitable for sensitive skin, plus our recommendation of a men’s face and eye serum with extra anti-ageing benefits.

Why do men need eye cream?

Using eye cream daily helps to keep the skin around your eyes feeling moisturised and comfortable.

Anti-ageing eye creams offer additional benefits and target signs of ageing around the eye, such as crow's feet and laughter lines.

The main reasons why men might use a natural eye cream as part of their daily grooming routine are to:

  • Target signs of skin ageing, such as lines and sagging
  • Target signs of tiredness, such as under eye bags and puffy eyes
  • Hydrate and refresh the skin around the eyes
  • Soothe and nourish the skin around the eyes

When should men start using eye cream?

Men should start using eye cream in their 20s, even before fine lines first emerge.

Puffy eyes tend to follow and when you reach your 30s and 40s, you might notice that the subcutaneous fat deposits that support your eyes begin to droop, leaving an ‘eye bag’ effect that leaves eyes looking tired.

Applying an eye cream regularly from the age of 20+ can help to support the skin around the eyes so that the fine lines and eye bags appear less prominent.

You should also apply sun cream every day to prevent sun-induced premature ageing. Our men’s facial SPF30 is perfect for daily use.

Best anti-ageing eye cream for men

All Green People eye creams are unisex, but we think the best eye cream for men is the Scent Free Eye Cream.

This natural and organic eye cream for men is a gentle but effective choice for everyone – even if you find that your skin is particularly sensitive.

Its main anti-ageing ingredient is Baicalin, a natural ingredient with properties that are proven to actively reduce wrinkles. Baicalin has been shown to increase elasticity and firmness by 10-12%.


It is also rich in Avocado Oil, a nourishing natural ingredient that is reported to encourage collagen production, supporting younger-looking skin.

This anti-ageing eye cream is unscented, and you can use it daily to target under eye bags and fine lines.

Best eye serum for men

Serums are similar to eye creams, but have a slightly lighter texture that makes them particularly effective at sinking deep into the skin, where lines form.

If your main concern is targeting fine lines around the eye, our No.7 Antioxidant Repair Serum is the best choice for you.

A 2-in-1 grooming product that’s rich in Baicalin and skin-firming Seaweed, it can be applied daily all over the face, including the delicate eye area, to hydrate and firm the skin.

How to apply eye cream for men

You can apply eye cream at any time of the day or night. For best results, dispense the product onto your fingertip and then gently tap it onto the skin around the eye.

You do not need to wash off your eye cream. Simply leave it to sink into the skin before applying your moisturiser.

If you are prone to bags around the eyes that have a blue/purple hue, concentrate on the area of skin directly under the eye, using the gentle tapping motion to drain excess fluid away from the eyes.
