Intensive Eye Repair should not be used around the eyes because it contains fragrant rose extract as well as arnica. Neither is a good ingredient for skin anywhere on the face, but especially not in a product applied so close to the eyes. What a shame, because this version for normal to dry skin contains numerous beneficial ingredients, including lots of antioxidants and repairing ingredients.

You could try this elsewhere on the face, but why bother when there are great moisturizers that omit the problematic ingredients and those can be used around the eyes, too.

This eye cream also contains fragrance ingredients citronellol, geraniol, and linalool, all of which pose an additional risk of irritation when applied around the eyes.

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.
