Looking to tackle fine lines, slack skin or overall dullness? These supercharged eye creams deliver.
Revision Skincare DEJ Eye Cream ($100) is uniquely formulated to reduce the look of hooding on the upper eyelid and balance microbiome, thanks to prebiotic and postbiotics inside.
Epionce Luminous Eye Serum ($64) taps lentils, watermelon and cacao (among other superfoods for the face) as a source of B-vitamins, proteins and antioxidants for a formula that quells inflammation and fights free radicals.
A lipid-rich gel that fortifies the skin barrier and delicate area around the eyes, Hourglass Cosmetics Equilibrium Instant Plumping Eye Mask ($68) is a fast-acting treatment that can be used alone or before makeup for a plumping effect.
Peptides and an algae complex found in the Ignae Dynamic Eye Complex ($132) are nanoencapsulated to glide past the skin barrier and travel into the deep, subcutaneous layer of skin. There, it affects cell regeneration to produce smoother texture and brighter skin around the eyes, the brand says.
Dual chambers in Clarins Double Serum Eye ($79) dispense 2/3 water-based ingredients and 1/3 gel, which combine plant-based caffeine and vegetable squalane, among other ingredients to address dark circles and quench dry skin.
To address dyspigmentation around the delicate eye, Dr. Lewis recommends lower doses of powerhouse ingredients (like vitamin C, kojic acid and retinol). Summer Fridays Light Aura Vitamin C + Peptide Eye Cream ($42) spikes its peptide blend with a hit of vitamin C, plus caffeine to reduce puffiness.
Its ability to produce collagen and hold moisture (thanks to sodium hyaluronate and glycerin) is what makes Clinique Smart Clinical Repair Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream ($55) a one-stop shop for brightness and bounce.
Made to reduce puffiness and fine lines, Dermalogica Awaken Peptide Eye Gel ($56) is a tetrapeptide and caffeine-charged serum that hydrates as it firms.
