5 Luxurious Eye Creams That Are *Actually* Organic — & One Costs Less Than $20

Elite Daily/Amazon

The delicate skin around your eyes needs to be treated with the utmost care. But to treat them with extra kindness, pick up one of the best organic eye creams featured here. These eye creams harness botanically derived ingredients to gently nourish, brighten, and firm up that thin skin around your eyes, without the addition of the most common, potential irritants used in skin care products. More importantly, they're certified organic by trusted, third-party organizations like NATRUE, ECOCERT, and the USDA, unlike a lot of "natural" products that just claim to be organic.

Naturally, these are all safe bets for "clean" beauty enthusiasts and people with extra-sensitive eyes or skin. Beyond that, though, the right eye cream for you comes down to your preferred consistency, whether that's a lotion, a balm, a rich cream, or a lightweight (but potent) treatment. Of course, your budget is an important consideration too. Organic skin care can get pricey — a reflection of the quality of the ingredients — but I’ve included a couple of great options under $30, because everybody deserves an organic cream should they desire one, budget notwithstanding.

Without further ado, scroll on to shop five of the best organic eye creams you can get on Amazon.

01
The Budget-Friendly One

At just $25, this Weleda Awakening Eye Cream is a steal for any high-performing eye cream, whether organic or not (but especially organic). The tube is pretty small, but Amazon reviewers report that you only need a little bit to nourish your entire eye contour area; and even though it’s potent, the water-based formula feels light and refreshing. Elsewhere in the formula, sesame seed, macadamia, jojoba, and argan oils help plump and moisturize your skin, and provide some antioxidant protection — crucial for the delicate skin around your eyes.

The Rich One

If you’re looking for a luxe overnight eye cream, or your under-eyes could just use more moisture and protection, go for this Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Eye Cream. This boasts an impressive concentration of plant-based oils and butters rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids — like shea and cacao butter, jojoba oil, sea buckthorn oil, and macadamia oil, to name just a few. A raft of botanical extracts offer more active benefits, like red clover, a potential source of antioxidants that also may have soothing properties, and birch for purifying and hydrating.

The Multitasking Balm

Damascus rose has long been used as an all-purpose skin salve, thanks to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties. Fitting, then, that it’s the headlining ingredient in this do-it-all balm from Badger. All the other ingredients in here are soothing and rejuvenating (think: olive oil, chamomile oil, and lavender oil), so you can smooth it over any areas that need extra healing and protection — eyes, face, neck, chapped knuckles, scars, you name it. This gets universally positive feedback from Amazon reviewers, who report that it absorbs quickly, doesn’t leave behind a greasy residue, and doesn’t trigger outbreaks of any kind (including of the acne and eczema variety).

The Eye & Lip Treatment

This Naturopathica Primrose Eye & Lip Treatment is a bit more concentrated than other eye creams on this list, but it’s very light and fluid — both of which render this more of a treatment than a moisturizer. Evening primrose oil, which has all sorts of great benefits for your skin, is the star ingredient in here, while moisturizers like açaí fruit oil and rosewater offer some hydration, but you can always follow this up with a richer eye cream if your skin is very dry. As its name implies, you can use this on and around your lips, too!

05
The Ultimate Splurge

$105 is never not going to be a lot of money to spend on an eye cream. But if you’re willing and able to do it, you won’t find a more luxurious (and, yes, effective) eye cream than this one from Tata Harper. This is made of an impressive 30 powerful botanicals (including one literally called "eyebright flower"), many harvested fresh from the brand’s organic farm in Vermont, which all work to firm, hydrate, brighten, and protect your skin. A little goes a long way, so don't worry — you'll get your money's worth out of this stuff.
