The Top 5 Drugstore Eye Creams, According to a Top Dermatologist

Want to know of my favorite beauty tricks? I LOVE applying my eye cream and moisturizer with a makeup brush! I know it seems silly, but I swear it just makes the whole process seem very luxurious and calming :) Speaking of eye cream, I chatted with Miami-based board-certified dermatologist, S. Manjula Jegasothy, to get her take on the best eye creams that you can buy at the, get this, DRUGSTORE. Yes, you can buy them there and here are Dr. Jegasothy’s top picks…

L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Eye Balm: “Balms in eye creams help to smooth the delicate eye area,” explains Jegasothy.  “This eye balm, formulated with multiple types of nourishing butters and oils, is especially rich and dense. It helps provide long-lasting hydration and an overall smoother eye area.”

Botanics All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll-on: “Keep this roll-on in the fridge so the cold can help deflate any swelling and redness. It also contains hibiscus extract, a mild AHA, to leave the eye area smoother and brighter.”

L’Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Eye Treatment: “Like the Volume Filler Daily Concentrated Serum, this eye treatment is filled with hyaluronic acid, the ingredient found in injectable fillers. As an ingredient in topical serums, fragmented hyaluronic acid benefits the skin by drawing moisture to the epidermis, giving the eye area a plumper and more volumized appearance while filling in fine lines temporarily. This non-greasy formula also contains caffeine.”

Garnier SkinActive Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream: “This eye cream contains retinol, caffeine and peptides, which help to stimulate collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and brighten the eye area.”

Olay Eyes Illuminating Eye Cream: “This formula contains light-reflecting pigments, titanium dioxide and mica, for a pearlescent finish that works to instantly brighten under eye dark circles. The formula also contains Niacinamide, a form of Vitamin B that over time can help minimize dark circles.”
