Dark circles and under-eye bags may be first and second when you think “eye cream,” but drooping, or sagging, eyelids happen too—especially in today’s screen-heavy society. Prolonged screen time (the U.S. daily average is seven hours and three minutes, according to Backlinko) not only pollutes our skin and accelerates “tech neck,” but it also puts extra strain on our eyes that can indirectly exacerbate drooping eyelids.”

With your eyes constantly scrolling up and down or side to side with social sites for sometimes hours it strains the eyes and the muscle surrounding them leading to the accelerated appearance of aging through sagging of the upper eyelid,” explains New York optometrist Dr. Jennifer Tsai.

Dermalogica’s new Phyto Nature Lifting Eye Cream ($115) is an innovative cream safe to use on the upper and lower eyelids to lift, firm and visibly reduce signs of eye aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, dryness and loss of elasticity. Its formula is infused with an arsenal of refining, smoothing, hydrating and tightening ingredients such as quinoa seed extract, peptides, matcha butter, squalane, vitamin E, pro-vitamin B5 and CoQ-10. Dr. Tsai calls Phyto Nature’s ingredient list “ideal for the eyes.” “These ingredients help fight oxidative damage and locks in moisture. It’s gentle but effective especially for the delicate eyelid skin,” explains Dr. Tsai.

According to the brand, it takes just one use to see measurably lifted eyes, and in a clinical trial 97 percent of participants showed visible lifting in their upper lids. 97 percent also reported brighter skin and 94 percent saw a noticeable reduction in wrinkles.

Dermalogica’s Phyto Nature Lifting Eye Cream may be new, but shoppers of all ages are already singing its praises. “I can’t get over how well this product has changed the skin around my eyes!” exclaims a 40-something shopper, who says improvements were noticeable after one use. “Will absolutely be using this every day!” a 30-something user raves. Another person in their 30s said Phyto Nature Lifting Eye Cream is now a “key part” of their skin-care routine because their eyelids look “firmer and lifted.” A customer in the 50-59 age range commented, “The results get better and better” and remarked on a “very noticeable improvement” of “sagging eyelids and fine lines and wrinkles… upon [their] first application.” Other reviewers call it “gentle,” “brightening” and “hydrating,” and several note it also “wears beautifully” under makeup.
