Recommended Eye Creams

It’s said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, and people often form their first impressions of you from the way your eyes and complexion appear. Wrinkled skin, age spots and dark circles can frame your eyes and make you look worn and haggard. Improve the health of the skin around your eyes with several over-the-counter eye creams, recommended by dermatologists and beauty experts, to rejuvenate your appearance and make a bright, positive first impression.

Topix Replenix Retinol Plus Smoothing Serum 10X

Topix’s Replenix retinol eye product comes recommended by dermatologist Leslie Baumann, who says the product’s vitamin A derivatives can help to both prevent fine wrinkles and reduce their severity around the eyes. Additional wrinkle-fighting ingredients include hyaluronic acid, which helps plump up the skin, and green tea extract, a potent antioxidant that may prevent future skin damage.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Eye Anti-Aging Moisturizing Treatment

Beauty and cosmetics expert Paula Begoun gave Elizabeth Arden’s anti-aging eye cream one of her highest grades, saying it was an “impressive formula.” She notes that it includes significant amounts of antioxidants and skin conditioners, like idebenone, and other “excellent ingredients.” She also says that pigments added to the cream can instantly brighten any dark circles you may have.

Olay Definity Eye Illuminator

Olay’s eye cream has won top marks from numerous critics, including winning “Allure” magazine’s coveted Editors’ Choice Award. “Harper’s Bazaar” magazine says it can help you get flawless skin by improving skin tone and color, stimulating blood circulation and improving your skin’s collagen production. Wrinkle-fighting ingredients include glucosamine, while silicone hydrates and instantly fills in fine lines for a cosmetically enhanced look.

Kinerase Pro+ Therapy Ultra Rich Eye Repair

Begoun says Kinerase’s eye repair cream is one of the best moisturizing eye treatments available at a department store. Active ingredients include zeatin and kinetin, which moisturize while potentially helping improve skin tone and wrinkles. Natural additives, such as plankton extract and algae extract, may feed the delicate skin around your eyes with trace vitamins and minerals.
