We’ll state up front that this fragrance-free eye cream cannot make deep-set wrinkles vanish nor can it help with sagging skin around the eyes or anywhere else on the face.

Many skin-care products claim they can firm and lift skin, but none of them work, at least not to the extent claimed. A face- or eye-lift-in-a-bottle isn’t possible, but with the right mix of products, you will see firmer skin that has a more lifted appearance—and that’s exciting! In order to gain these youthful benefits, you must protect skin from any and all sun damage every day, use an AHA (glycolic acid or lactic acid) or BHA (salicylic acid) exfoliant, and use products that have a wide range of antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients. This combination of products (remember, one product doesn’t do it all) has extensive research showing how they can significantly improve many of the signs of aging such as firming skin, reducing wrinkles and brown spots, and eliminating dullness. You’ll find them on our list of Best Anti-Aging/Anti-Wrinkle Products.

If you’re still curious about this eye cream, it has a silky-smooth texture and contains an impressive amount of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) which has anti-aging benefits. Vitamin C isn’t going to fill wrinkles or life sagging skin, but it is among the many good anti-aging ingredients to consider. Of course, ultimately, if you’re using a well formulated facial moisturizer and serum you don’t need to add an eye cream (really). This product is a great example, as it doesn’t contain a single ingredient not found in facial moisturizers, too. You have to ask why you’re paying more for a teeny-tiny amount of product!

Brand Overview

La Roche-Posay At-A-Glance

L'Oreal-owned La Roche-Posay has a pharmaceutical lineage based in France, and the company speaks of their thermal spring water as the cornerstone of their commitment to dermatological skin care. In fact, the name La Roche-Posay comes from the French town that is the source of this water, which is said to be a rich in selenium. While selenium is an element that has potent antioxidant ability, it's unclear how much the water La Roche-Posay uses contains, since all water has to go through purification processes to be to used in cosmetic products.

That aside, this brand does have a number of standout products, including some good sunscreens and anti-aging treatments. Another positive: All of its skincare is packaged in containers that will keep beneficial products protected from light and air (no jar packaging here!). Unfortunately there are some missteps, namely that some otherwise-excellent products include potentially-irritating amounts of alcohol, fragrance, or other irritants. The line could also benefit from additional products that contain more state-of-the-art ingredients. Still, for a no-frills approach to serious skin care, there are some finds to be had!
