The best vitamin K eye cream will reduce dark circles and puffiness from around the eyes more effectively than other eye creams. Vitamin K is used in the medical profession to treat bruising and swelling after surgery, so it can be effective as part of a facial beauty routine. A good vitamin K eye cream should contain enough of the vitamin to be effective, should blend into the skin easily and should be reasonably priced.

When choosing a vitamin K eye cream, find out how much vitamin K the different creams contain. Read the ingredients on the side of the box and compare the brands. Typically, 5 percent is a reasonable concentration.

Take other ingredients into account when selecting a cream. Vitamin K works well together with other ingredients such as vitamin D, jojoba oil and aloe. Identify ingredients that you have found to be effective in the past and investigate vitamin K creams that contain them; take advantage of the skin care benefits from other ingredients at the same time. Many good eye creams contain a level of ultraviolet (UV) sun protection, which is useful in conjunction with vitamin K as long-term protection against sun damage and aging.

The price of eye cream containing vitamin K is an indicator of quality, but other factors, such as the concentration of the vitamin, also should be considered, along with the price. Choose the best cream to suit your budget. It is often possible to find creams with greater concentrations of active ingredients, at reasonable prices, from reputable online retailers.

Use trial and error to choose the best vitamin K eye cream, because a cream that suits one individual might not suit everybody. Send away for samples of creams if available, or ask about samples in the store. Try one cream for about two weeks to give it a chance to work. The best eye creams will reduce puffiness, wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes and will improve circulation. Results are sometimes visible right away in the best creams.

Ask friends which cream they prefer. It might be worth trying their recommendations. Likewise, read product reviews and comparisons to gain an idea of the best eye creams.

Avoid creams that cause any skin irritation, redness, stinging and dryness. Your skin should feel soft, smooth and moisturized but not oily and sticky. Eye cream should apply easily and soak in quickly.

@donasmrs-- After your comment, I went and checked the eye cream box for ingredients. It doesn't list the percentage of vitamin K. I actually couldn't locate vitamin K in the ingredients list at all! No wonder it doesn't work! I also checked reviews and it has awful reviews.

I'm going to buy another eye cream with vitamin K, but this time, I'm going to do lots of research. I'm reading reviews of creams right now and I'll even call manufacturers to find out the percentage of vitamin K if I have to. Thanks so much for your comment! I'm definitely wiser now.

@SarahGen-- Unfortunately, a high price doesn't always mean high quality. Did you read reviews of the product before purchasing? And what is the percentage of vitamin K in it? You didn't mention that.

I bought a vitamin K eye cream last month for the dark circles under my eyes. It seemed like a good cream. It wasn't cheap, it has protection against UV light, it contains jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid. But it hasn't done anything for me. My dark circles look the same and so do the fine wrinkles. I wasted my money.
