5 Eye Creams With Retinol to Add to Your ArsenalOctober 13, 2022
Retinol is a powerful anti-aging ingredient that’s shown to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration on your skin — but it’s potentially even more important to use in targeted areas like under the eyes. That’s why eye creams that contain retinol can be powerful additions to anti-aging skincare routines. Ahead, we rounded up four of our favorite eye creams with retinol to get you started.
La Roche-Posay Redermic R Retinol Eye Cream
Redermic R Eyes is an intensive anti-aging concentrate that contains pure retinol, caffeine and La Roche-Posay’s signature thermal spring water. This hydrating combination helps to reduce the look of wrinkles, and it has a refreshing gel texture that helps lift and cool the under-eye area.
L’Oréal Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream
If you hate waking up with puffy under-eyes, you might like this eye treatment that firms the skin and fights wrinkles. Powerful ingredients like pro-retinol A and stimuplex help the skin resist signs of aging and as well as visibly reducing dark circles.
Pixi Beauty Retinol Eye Cream
This eye cream contains caffeine, peptides and retinol to smooth and depuff the under-eye area. Better yet, you can use this one as needed during the day as well as at night for maximum results.
Versed Smooth Landing Advanced Retinoid Eye Balm
Rather than pure retinol, Versed's eye cream uses granactive retinoid — what the brand calls a less irritating form of retinol — to reduce the appearance of crow's feet. The formula also includes shiitake mushroom extract to strengthen the skin's moisture barrier, as well as vitamin E and black currant seed oil to moisturize the delicate under-eye area.
