Eye Cream Vs. Eye Serum: When Should I Use Them?

Do you ever wonder what’s the difference between an eye cream and a serum? They both have plenty of similarities in the sense that they treat skin concerns such as fine lines, loss of elasticity, uneven skin tone, and dehydration. Ideally, you want to use both together to get maximum results in anti-aging skincare.  

The Main Difference Between an Eye Cream and a Serum

The biggest difference between a serum over a cream is that a serum is water-based without any added oils in natural skin care products. As far as the texture goes, a serum tends to be lighter-weight and is meant to be applied to the skin underneath an eye cream around the eyes or lotion-based moisturizer on the face.

The Serum You Should Use Under Your Eye Cream or Gel

The best serum to use under your eye cream or gel is our Cosmedica Skincare Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Many serums say right on the packaging that you can’t use it under the eye area. That’s not the case with our Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Not only will it help any eye cream or gel work better around the eye area, but it can also stimulate the production of collagen. This will help with the appearance of lines around the eyes with the best in cruelty-free and vegan skincare. 


Your eye area is unfortunately one of the first places to show age with those dreaded “crow’s feet,” those tiny lines that pop up first around the sides of your eyes. You can make the eye area look more youthful with an anti-aging serum and eye cream combination. The serum goes on the skin first bringing it up around the eye area, and then you’ll tap on the eye cream all around the eye including the tops of the lid and up to the brow bone. You don’t have to get too close to the eye because the heat of your eye will draw the serum and eye cream where it needs to be. 

We Offer Two Eye Treatment Products

When you want to treat your eye area, after using the hyaluronic acid serum, we have two eye products to choose from. 

First is our Brightening Eye Treatment Gel. This powerful cruelty-free and vegan skincare product is a gel-based, lightweight eye treatment gel that is going to reduce the appearance of lines, boost elasticity, and correct dark circles and dullness. It penetrates deep with vitamin C and grapeseed oil that promote healthy skin. 


If you prefer a cream-based eye treatment, try our Total Restorative Eye Cream. With a combination of AHAs and peptides it will rejuvenate the skin around the eye area making it look youthful. The green tea extract, aloe, and jojoba will help to restore life to the eye area making you feel your most beautiful for anti-aging skincare. 

When Should You Use Them?

Here’s a little natural skin care tip: Many people use the Brightening Eye Treatment Gel during the day and the Total Restorative Eye Cream at night. That way you get all the benefits of both eye products after you have applied the hyaluronic acid serum.
