You can ignore the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) claims on the label because this eye cream does not contain any AHAs! It’s just a good, fairly basic, fragrance-free eye cream for normal to dry skin. It contains some reliable, vitamin-based antioxidants and mica for a shiny, “brightened” finish. If you’re considering this please know that you don’t need an eye cream! There is no research proving that the skin around the eye area needs something different from skin elsewhere on the face. No one in the world has ever explained exactly what ingredients the eye area needs that the face doesn’t when it comes to dry skin or wrinkles. And there are no ingredients that have ever been shown to significantly improve dark circles or reduce puffy eyes. Bottom line: If a “face” product is well formulated for dry skin and fighting wrinkles, you can use it anywhere on the face and beyond. That includes the eye area, neck, jaw, or chest. What you get when you buy an eye cream is a small amount of product (often half the size of a face product) that is twice as expensive.

A multi-vitamin treatment with Alpha-Hydroxy Acid. Moisturizes and reduces the appearance of fine lines.

Neutrogena is one of few brands that have an equally large presence in both the U.S. and in Canada. Unfortunately, many of the formulas and product names that Neutrogena uses are not interchangeable between the two countries, a fact that has been brought to our attention by our astute Canadian readers (who make up about 10% of our Beautypedia readership). In an effort to clear up a lot of the confusion surrounding Neutrogena Canada products, The Cosmetics Cop Team has done research in Canadian drugstores to determine the ingredients and product names as they appear on Neutrogena's Canadian packaging.

Please note that if a product does not appear on this list, it means that, to the best of our knowledge, that product has the same name and formula in the U.S. as it does in Canada. You'll find the reviews for such products under the main Neutrogena brand. That overlap means Canadian readers may find they have to switch between both Neutrogena and Neutrogena Canada to locate the product review they're seeking, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

In some cases the differences between the U.S. and Canadian version of a Neutrogena product is only an ingredient or two, and in other cases the entire formula is different. Despite The Cosmetics Cop Team best efforts, there are no doubt products that have been overlooked on this list. As much as we would like it to be comprehensive, we are restricted by what is on store shelves at the time we conduct our research. If you have any additional information about Neutrogena Canada products, we encourage you to contact us using the link at the bottom of the product's review page.
