Top 3 pregnancy-safe eye creams
Who doesn’t feel like a sleep-walking version of themselves during that first trimester of pregnancy? Is zombie-chic a thing? And then again in the third trimester, when your growing belly and shrinking bladder prevent any sort of comfy sleep. Spoiler alert: it’s all preparing you for the throes of new motherhood. We can’t speak for everyone, but we felt like our under eye bags rivaled the ones we were carrying out of Buy Buy Baby while in nesting mode. There may not be any magic eye creams that can completely undo the damage of pregnancy exhaustion, but thankfully there are a few products that we felt significantly reduced the telltale signs. These following little saviors made our pregnancy-safe Top 3 Eye Creams list, with their potent but clean formulas aiding in the reduction of lines, puffiness, and under-eye circles (oh my!).

Why we love it:
The rollerball may feel slightly less luxurious than dipping your fingertips into a beautiful little jar, but the upside is a mess-free application and no funky scents to contend with. Not to mention the roller is actually rose quartz, which is equal parts chic and powerful. Take that eye cream pots! Better still, we felt that the oil gave an instant pick me up in the eye area, so its portability comes in quite handy for a quick refresh on the go…which we could all use, even when we’re not battling morning sickness.
Why we love it:
We can all admit we’ll have whatever Gwyneth is having. But celeb aging goals aside, this was one of the only eye creams we tried where people actually mentioned seeing a difference…unprompted! Natural ingredients like sandalwood nut oil and olive butter work to pump those bags full of hydration, while peptides firm up those wrinkles…and it’s all non-toxic and pregnancy safe!
Why we love it:
Despite its somewhat Marvel comic sounding name, the Oculus Formula is a highly concentrated potion of herbal nutrients. A super combo to both regenerate and firm, while also reducing those puffy bags. It comes in oil form, so it lends itself to a dewier finish upon application and the scent certainly doesn’t wreak of its potency. Overall we found this character to pack quite the punch.
