Eye cream is incredibly generous and you don’t need more product than a pea size. Apply a small amount of eye cream to the middle finger and gently dab the cream under and over the eye socket – dab from side to side until the cream has been absorbed into the skin. Avoid applying eye cream to the eyelids, as these have extra thin skin and the active ingredients can lead to irritation.
