The skin around your eyes is subject to a lot of daily ‘wear and tear’ – you blink 10,000 times a day on average, and with 24 muscles (14 of which move every ten seconds), it’s no surprise that eyes are first to betray signs of time, stress and sleep-deprivation.

So, if your shelf's full of potent eye serums and creams to help revive, depuff and smooth your sensitive eye area but you want to up the ante with a targeted tool then, you've come to the right place! From eye-friendly satin pillowcases to intelligent gizmos and cooling massage tools, our edit of the best eye care tools is here to take your ritual to all-new heights with impressive results. (P.S - any of these would make a brilliant tool gift for a skin care obsessive this festive season!)

Rested, revived, youthful-looking eyes in just three minutes a day – hands-free – is the promise made by Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare's DRx SpectraLite EyeCare Max Pro Device. And how does it keep this promise, you ask? With 96 red LEDs in four different wavelengths which target the primary causes of creases — stimulating fibroblasts to synthesis the collagen and elastin that keeps skin strong, supple and resilient. With 97% of subjects in Dr. Dennis Gross' clinical trial showing a visible improvement within ten weeks of consistent use, consider this the ultimate investment in the future of your face.

Next up is Beauty Bio's GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool.

The GloPRO EYE MicroTip Attachment Head features 240 tiny 0.3mm needles which create painless micro-channels within the layers of skin to stimulate renewal and repair; encouraging the production of collagen and elastin as well as allowing products to absorb and work 200 times harder than they would otherwise!

Perfectly portable, this powerful device is great for on-the-go use, for smoothing small areas or for boosting the results of your Trinity Facial Toning Device. Heightening the results is the FIX Serum – an active-charged formula fortified with peptides to smooth expression lines, while brightening, tightening and lending plenty of hydration.

The ultimate foil for dark circles, sagging, crow’s feet, crêpey-ness and puffiness, FOREO's IRIS Anti Wrinkle Eye Massager has been designed to emulate ‘fingertip massage’ – with two modes to stimulate elimination of accumulated toxins and help to fortify skin’s fabric.
