Do you really need to use eye cream? This is a question Ultraceuticals National Trainer and skin expert Michelle Ryan is asked frequently, and her answer is always, yes!  “The skin around your eyes is delicate, may be more sensitive and can be one of the first areas to show the tell-tale signs of stress, lack of sleep and ageing,” explains Michelle. 

Here Michelle explains which eye cream is best for you. Whether it be fine lines, dark circles or dryness; there’s a formula designed to address your needs.
