Eye Creams Dermatologists Like
There are thousands of eye creams on the market, which can make choosing one overwhelming. So we asked the experts — dermatologists — which ones they use and recommend to clients. They came back to us with 12 options, ranging from products you see in your local drugstore to others nearing the $100 mark. One caveat: "Eye creams can be used for various reasons, including moisturizing, reducing inflammation, creating a skin barrier, anti-aging, reducing the appearance of fine lines, improving skin texture, and reducing the appearance of dark circles," says Tsippora Shainhouse, a board-certified dermatologist in Beverly Hills, California, in private practice at SkinSafe Dermatology and Skin Care. Keep in mind your goals and do your research before hitting that "buy" button.
Fayne Frey, a board-certified dermatologist for almost 30 years, founder of FryFace, and a skincare product formulation expert, has an important tip to think about for when you shop: "There are no proven ingredients in eye creams that are specific to the eye area. For example, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Facial Moisturizer's Extra Dry formula is the same ingredient listing as Neutrogena Hydro Boost eye cream." If you can find the former for a lower price than the latter, pick it up instead.
Prices and availability were researched in early May and are subject to change.
