Before we discuss the formula, you need to know that not everyone needs a separate product for the skin around your eyes. You can address signs of aging anywhere on your face using the exact same beneficial ingredients that are found in any of the well-formulated facial moisturizers or serums we recommend.

It is also important to know that most eye creams (such as this one) don’t contain sunscreen. That’s a serious problem because it leaves the skin around your eyes vulnerable to sun damage, which will make dark circles and wrinkling worse when applied during daylight hours!

If you’re still curious about this eye cream, which makes all the usual claims of reducing dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles, it does contain several anti-aging ingredients that will benefit skin anywhere on your face. The texture is light and silky, and it works well under makeup.

Despite containing superstar ingredients, such as retinol, green tea, and vitamin C, this eye cream loses points for including a fairly high amount of radish root, which is a skin irritant. That means there is the potential for irritation (which hurts skin’s healing process and causes collagen breakdown), even though there are also some great ingredients.

Brand Overview

Dermalogica At-A-Glance

According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.

The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
