Best eye cream for wrinkle – Overall TOP 15 [Updated]
Best eye cream for men – Brickell Eye cream for men
15. Brickell – Men’s Restoring Eye Cream, 0,5oz
Brickell is an organic men’s startup based in Maine focused on limiting chemicals in their products.
The idea that men do not care on their appearance is anachronistic, which is why I particularly want to add a good quality eye cream for men.
Not that the other eye creams in the ranking would not be suitable for men. As a matter of fact, quality active ingredients are great for any skin type!
However, men skin is slightly thicker than women’s skin, so I decided to add a slightly more “powerful” and specific cream for any men’s skin.
Brickell’s Restoring Eye Cream for wrinkle is a unique concentrate of moisturizers, nutrients, peptides and antioxidants as I have rarely seen. In my opinion one of the best eye cream for men due to the quality of the ingredients used.
Actually, there are so many ingredients that I don’t know where to begin!
Aloe, Sunflower Oil, Hyaluronic Acid (as third ingredient! This means a great boost on hydration), Cocoa Butter, Vitamin C, Jojoba Oil, Licorice, Raspberry Oil, Avocado extract and Blueberry Extract.
Just to mention SOME of the natural ingredients that are scientifically recognized to give a concrete antioxidant and anti-free radical contribution.
But also, from the point of view of the anti-aging effect, the concentration of active ingredients is truly impressive.
We find, among others, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSN), the Matrix 3000 (a multipeptides complex), Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 and Hidroquinone (Coenzyme Q10).
Without going into too much detail, peptides like Tripeptide-5 and Hexapeptide-3, are touted for their wrinkle relaxing ability. These peptides are known to prevent wrinkles by limiting facial muscle contractions (yes, like simil-Botox effect).
Matrix 3000 is a blend of protein peptides clinically proven to boost collagen thanks to the stimulation of fibroblasts.
Methylsulfonylmethane is expected to reduce age spots and common skin pigmentation issues related to aging. Also, MSM has further ability to enhance collagen levels in skin, resulting in smooth skin with softer fine lines.
Finally, ubiquinone, a vitamin-like substance thought to penetrate the skin easily, and reduce free radical damage via its antioxidant properties.
In short, a powerful combination of some of the best age smart ingredients known to science.
A product suitable both to combat puffiness and (above all) the first wrinkles of the skin of the eye area. In my opinion one of the best eye cream for men, as of today.

- Mainly organic ingredients
- Good long-term anti-aging effect (peptides and antioxidants)
- Excellent moisturizing power
- Not greasy, minimal smell
- It does not much on dark circles or puffiness, although results may vary from person to person
- May irritate most delicate skins
- In my experience, it takes time (at least 40 days) to see significant results on wrinkles
Best affordable anti aging eye cream
14. Wake – Skincare Eye Gel, 1oz
WakeSkincare is based in the UK, and its eye gel is a well-distributed and well-known product both in Europe and in the USA.
The EyeWake eye cream for wrinkles and puffiness looks more like a serum than an eye cream. In fact, it has a liquid gel consistency, that upon application immediately gives a fresh effect in the eye area.
In this case, we are talking about an eye contour gel that uses mostly natural ingredients, strongly oriented towards antioxidant effect and stimulation of the subcutaneous circulation.
In the INCI we find several interesting substances including Aloe Vera Leaf Juice (hydrating), Cucumber Extract (soothing and refreshing), Elderflower Extract (anti-inflammatory, skin soothing), and Rose Flower Extract (skin conditioning and natural fragrance).
Most of all, I appreciated the moisturizing effect in this anti aging eye cream.
Glycerin plumps skin (as it has the ability to hold moisture), while cucumber acts both on hydration (as a deep moisturizer) and antiaging, (contains vitamin K which is known to improve skin elasticity).
Even after many hours (even after 6-8 hours of application) the skin really feels moisturized and supple.
All in all, this anti aging eye cream it’s a simple, affordable product that uses natural extracts to soothe, and well hydrates all the sensitive eyes area.
Not bad also the effect on dark circles and puffiness, although, it won’t be able to completely fade any of the two.
Aqua, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Sodium Carbomer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Collagen*, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel), Rose Centifolia Flower Extract, Sambucus Nigra (Elderflower) Extract, Cucumber Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide.
- One of most affordable, good quality anti age eye creams
- Good and natural INCI
- Fast-absorbing, non-greasy at all (adapt perfectly before makeup)
- Excellent moisturizing and smoothing power
- Fair effect on dark circles
- Good long-term anti-wrinkle antioxidant effect
- Questionable results on puffiness
- Too liquid consistency
- Not suitable for “immediate” wrinkle lifting results
Best natural eye cream for wrinkle (organic)
13. Christina Moss Naturals – Eye Cream Moisturizer, 0,5oz
Christina Moss Naturals eye cream is a product that I have known in the USA, as it is (sadly) not present in Europe.
It is a small family owned business, specialized in the creation of anti-aging cosmetics using exclusively natural ingredients.
I have tried almost all the products and I must say that I really like this brand. Especially if we are looking for “green” cosmetics, this could be an excellent choice.
The eye wrinkle cream is a completely organic product, which exploits the power of totally natural active ingredients to nourish and soothe the skin.
Let’s start with the moisturizing effect. It is really impressive and is supported by the presence of Aloe (first ingredient of the INCI!), Glycerin and sodium hyaluronate.
The fact that there is no water makes the cream very dense, with a rather rich texture. A few drops are enough to cover the whole eye area.
The part linked to the anti-aging effect derives from the use of plant antioxidants, such as vitamin C, Organic Almond Oil, Persian Silk extract and Vitis Vinifera Oil, among others.
Hyaluronic Acid is a molecule that can retains over 1,000 times its weight in water, making it the ultimate skin hydrator.
As we well know, vitamin C revitalizes and improves the elasticity of the skin, protects it from ultraviolet rays and counteracts the effects of toxic substances such as smoke and pollution. In addition, it prevents stains due to advancing age and lightens existing ones.
Another interesting plant extract is Vitis Vinifera, known as anti-inflammatory, ideal for the care of acne, oily and combination skin and used as powerful antioxidant and cell membrane-protective. (And, in fact, it is one of the best ingredients for an eye cream for sensitive skins),
Finally, the use of Red Algae Extract is interesting. According to Christina Moss, Red algae extract is packed with antioxidants and is known for brightening skin and reducing the appearance of fine wrinkles over time.
I honestly haven’t found much independent information about this ingredient, so I can’t say if and how effective it can be as an anti-aging agent.
All things considered, I consider this eye wrinkle cream for sensitive skins a valid choice for all those looking for something that stands apart from the usual creams.
Natural ingredients, good antioxidant power and excellent moisturizing power.
A truly nourishing natural anti aging eye cream that can be appreciated especially on younger skin.
True, the lifting effect will certainly not be present in the immediate future. In addition, the texture is very rich and may be a little too heavy for oily skins.
But certainly one of the best natural eye cream for wrinkle that I have encountered, both in the USA and in Europe.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Emulsifying Wax NF (Vegetable – Made From Organic Coconut Oil and Organic Almond Oil), Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Albizia Julibrissin (Persian Silk Tree) Bark Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Chrondus Crispus (Irish Moss) Extract, Asparagopsis Armata (Red Algae) Extract, Ascophyllum Nodostrum (Knotted Wrack) Extract, Sorbitol, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Fruit Extract*, Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Fruit Extract*, Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Fruit Extract*, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citric Acid, Lactic Acid. *Certified Organic Ingredients.
- INCI completely natural and organic (Silicones, Glycols, Parabens, Pegs, frargances free)
- Very rich texture, perfect for dry skins
- Deeply nourishing and moisturizing
- Excellent antioxidant ingredients (fights off free radicals, good long-term anti-aging power)
- Under eye actually look very smooth
- Questionable results on puffiness and dark circles
- A little too heavy for oily skin
- Minimum lifting results in the short term
Organic under eye cream for wrinkles
12. NuOrganic – Age Defying Eye Lifting, 1oz
NuOrganic’s age defying eye is an excellent natural eye serum for those looking for an affordable price product.
It is essentially a serum for the eye area rich in plant organic extracts, amino acids and active peptides.
Among the plant extracts, the high content of Jojoba Oil is very interesting. According to various studies, jojoba oil revitalizes, regenerates and soothes irritated skin, strengthens it and also manages to prevent wrinkles thanks to the antioxidant contribution. Its ease of absorption and its great ability to penetrate through the small pores of the epidermis, leaving it smooth and silky, gives jojoba oil an excellent moisturizing action.
I can’t mention all the plant extracts present, but what I can say is that the antioxidant power is truly impressive.
Also interesting is the fact that this eye serum is full of amino acids.
Amino acids are precursors in the formation of collagen and elastin, they are considered valid anti-aging agents. Overall, amino acids maintain hydration, firmness and elasticity, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and giving our skin a young and healthy appearance.
And last but not least to note the presence of peptides, of which the largest by concentration are Argireline and Matrixyl 3000.
Argireline is a well-known peptide, famous for the abilty of stimulating collagen production.
But what about Matrixyl 3000?
From what I understood studying about it, Matrixyl 3000 is a peptide containing two matrichins (palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7) which act in synergy to repair skin damage caused by aging.
Matrichins are usually small peptides that are formed by proteolysis of proteins or glycoproteins, fibrillary. The matrichine exercise stimulatory effects and activate the neosynthesis of the macromolecules of the extra cellular matrix through the genes involved in the restructuring and repair of the skin.
These properties make Matrixyl 3000 a good addition in wrinkle prevention, but certainly does not too much for wrinkles in the short term.
As for Plant Stem Cells, I am still quite skeptical.
There is no evidence that they are suitable for fighting wrinkles. If anything, tests on real people (in-vivo) showed decreases in skin redness (13.4% compared to placebo) and enhances natural skin glow (+ 9.2%). (But nothing said about wrinkles).
All in all, at the price at which it is sold I consider this under eye cream for wrinkle a much better product than many other more expensive I tested. And most of all, good value for money.
Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe Baradensis Leaf (Aloe), Matrixyl 3000, Argireline Peptide, Palmitoyl Triepeptide-3, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Globularia Cordifolia Callus Culture Extract (Plant Stem Cells), Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber Hydrosol), Organic Simmondsis Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Botanical Hyaluronic Acid), Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Carrageenan Gum, Silk Amino Acid Blend (Sodium L-Pyrrolidone Carboxylate, Sodium Lactate, L’Arginine, L-Aspartic Acid, L-Pyrrolidonecarboxylic Acid, Glycine, L-Alanine, L-Serine, L-Valine, L-Proline, L-Threonine, L-Isoleucine, L-Histidine, L-Phenylalanine), Wildcrafted Vince Major (Periwinkle), Organic Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice), Wildcrafted Euphrsia Oicinalis (Eye Bright), Wildcrafted Ganoderma Lucidum (Reishi), Organic Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola), Boswellia Serrata (Frankincense), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Sodium Benzoate, Potassium, Sorbate, Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin.
- Affordable price for good quality INCI
- Completely organic eye cream (paraben, silicones and fragrances free)
- Work well to help the puffiness (fine on dark circles)
- Skin looks brighter and feels deeply hydrated
- Excellent antioxidant power (anti free radicals)
- Does not minimize wrinkles in the short term
- It has no lifting effect in the short term (while it’s ok in the long run)
Best natural eye cream for wrinkle
11. Microderm Glo – Peptide Complex, 1oz
Although little known, Microderm GLO is a USA company that produces excellent products with high nutritional value, using ingredients of natural origins.
It is a valuable natural eye cream for wrinkle that I met on a business trip in the US and that I really appreciated.
Let’s start with the ingredients, which are truly outstanding in this eye cream.
Methyl Gluceth-20, Glycerine USP, sodium hyaluronate and Aloe barbadensis are all ingredients of natural origin and deep moisturizing impact and are all present in high amounts (at the top of the INCI).
Note also the presence of peptides in high concentration, once again “high” in the INCI.
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 and Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 are in the first 6 positions of the INCI and represent clear active ingredients in the fight against wrinkles.
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide is able to absorb deep into the skin and is meant to help synthesize the proteins and encourage your skin’s natural health. The structure of this chemical promotes the production of collagen, the natural protein that creates elasticity, and Hyaluronic Acid, which gives your skin the moisture it needs to remain supple.
Recent studies have proven that Palmitoyl Oligopeptide can boost collagen production by 350 percent and hyaluronic acid production by 146 percent.
In the same way, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 and Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (Argireline) have both demonstrated significant anti-wrinkle activity decreasing visible skin wrinkles through a mechanism of action that stimulates the synthesis of the key skin matrix components (most of all collagen).
In order not to miss the anti-free radical power, immediately after the peptides we find a long list of natural plant extracts: Camellia, Algae, Malva Sylvestris, Hedera Helix, Sambucus, Arnica among others.
I will not go into the description of each of them, but we can certainly say that, overall, the antioxidant and anti-free radical effect is truly excellent. (And therefore, the long-term anti-aging power).
Good texture, light and not sticky at all.
In conclusion, I consider it the best natural eye cream for wrinkle to date. Ideal especially for skins between 30 and 50 years old.
Deionized Water, Methyl Gluceth-20, Glycerine USP, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, Hydroxyethelcellulose, Sodium PCA, Camellia Oleifera Leaf (Japanese Green Tea) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polysorbate-20, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Algae Extract, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Parietaria Officinalis Extract, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Tetrasodium EDTA, Carbomer.
- Excellent natural formula (and natural preservatives): no Parabens, Silicones, PEGS or fragrances
- Really soothing, tends to shrink large pores
- Strong antioxidant power
- Good wrinkle reduction
- Very light texture
- It can be a little dry on the driest skins
- Natural ingredients make the lifting effect minimal in the short term
Best under eye cream for wrinkles – Filorga Eye Contour cream
10. Filorga – Optim-Eyes, 0.5 fl oz
The Filorga Optim eyes treatment is a high-level eye treatment able to meet most of the requests we ask to an eye cream for wrinkles.
It is an eye cream with a very rich INCI, created to work on 3 different fronts: dark circles, puffiness and eyes-area lines (especially crow’s feet).
The ingredients include numerous extracts, including almond oil, hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate), arginine (antioxidant and stimulant for the production of collagen), hesperidin (lifting agent) and several others.
Excellent the presence of N-hydroxyisuccinimide, which has been associated with the elimination of pigments in the epidermis originating from the blood responsible for the dark color of the dark circles.
Threonine is also a noteworthy amino acid, known as an activator in the creation of glycine and serine, two other crucial amino acids for the production of collagen, elastin and muscle tissue.
Also, crucial is the presence of peptides to combat wrinkles and help with the anti aging eye effect both in the short and long term.
Palmitoyl tripeptide-1, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, dipeptide-2 are all peptides present in the INCI capable of acting as neurotransmitters.
They as massagers to fibroblasts to increase collagen production, guaranteeing a skin that is actually more elastic and firmer.
It will typically take at least 30 days to see a visible improvement on deepest wrinkles and crow’s feet
As for puffiness and dark circles, the foundation of this cream is linked to increasing blood circulation around the eyes to decrease puffiness and dark circles.
On balance, after 1 month it is possible to have a truly smoother, firmer and tightened skin in all the eye area. The dark circles are also reduced, although perhaps I expected better.
At the end of the day I consider it a truly nourishing and complete eye wrinkle cream.
The wide variety of ingredients (antioxidants, amino acids, peptides, moisturizers) guarantee a 360 ° effect, really helping with wrinkles, puffiness and making the skin smooth. Without a doubt one of the most interesting under eye cream for wrinkles.

Best eye cream for wrinkle (temporary effect)
9. Vitayes – Instant Ageback Facelift, 0,5oz
Instant ageback is a lifting cream that has had considerable media success and which aims to lift even the deepest wrinkles on any type of skin.
It’s an anti wrinkle eye cream made in Germany, whose main ingredient is high concentration argireline (10%).
It is an eye cream that is used to temporarily remove lines and wrinkles. The effects usually last from 5 to 8 hours.
Argireline is considered an excellent cosmetic agent for the treatment of wrinkles and skin lines. It is an amino peptide responsible for relaxing the skin. Although named “Botox in a jar”, Argireliae (acetyl hexapeptide-3 or acetyl hexapeptide-8) is not a toxin like botox.
Argireline is known to give improvements in the appearance of wrinkles from 10 to 30% (where 100% is completely smooth skin). There are many certified data and it is no coincidence that it is a principle that we find in different formulas, (although I never saw such high concentrations).
According to numerous studies, its lifting function derives from the ability to help strengthen the smallest blood vessels (the capillaries) making it an excellent ingredient for the best eye creams for crow’s feet.
This microvascularization process is essential because capillaries nourish the skin tissue at the cellular level, encouraging the formation of elastin and stimulating fibroblasts to produce more collagen.
In fact, this is an effective temporary wrinkle remover. With the right amount, it is able to tighten the skin and visibly fade face lines.
On me and our staff the results were objectively visible, but not as significant as in the images reported by the manufacturer.
Is this an eye cream that I would use and recommend?
Yes. Especially as temporary anti wrinkle eye cream for 50s and above. Ideal for a special occasion!
Aqua, Sodium Silicate, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (Argireline), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, C.l.19140, C.l.16035
- Great amount of Argireline (10%), active ingredient known for its lifting effect
- Really tighten the skin, temporarily stretching and reducing wrinkles (5-9 hours)
- Product known (and appreciated) worldwide
- The only active ingredient is argireline: results may vary depending on person to person
- Very expensive. The jar contains only 15 ml.
- In our experience, the lifting effect is temporary; no long-term antioxidant or antiage effect
Best eye serum for wrinkles – Estee Lauder Night Repair
8. Estee Lauder – Advanced Night Repair Complex, 1.7oz
For those who do not know it, Estee Lauder remains a point of reference among cosmetic products worldwide.
Beyond being a European and US bestseller, today I will describe the undeniable quality of the eye serum itself, widely recognized by all professionals.
To be clear, we are not talking about an organic product. Therefore, the quality of the INCI is not intended to be linked to natural ingredients, but to the effectiveness of the results.
The formula is gentle, fragrance free (and very suitable for sensitive skins), but at the same time incredibly rich in nutrients (perhaps that’s why something actually works among many!!).
Glycerin, Algae Extract; Mulberry, Scutellaria Baicalensis; Lactobacillus Ferment; Wheat Germ, Betula Alba and Soybean Extract just to mention some of the countless antioxidants in the formula.
According to what the company has declared, manages to neutralize up to 90% of the free radicals generated by the environment.
Advanced Night Repair is a serum of which a few drops are enough to “pat” on the eyelids.
This eye wrinkle serum is designed to dramatically reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, but it also works very well on puffiness and dark circles.
The result is an extremely fresh and draining effect on the bags.
Its major function, however, is the smoothing effect on wrinkles, both under the eyelids and on the crow’s feet. It can stretch in a couple of weeks the skin in a genuinely unexpected way.
We are talking about a product that remains the best for many. The price is important, but the results I have seen on many customers (who can afford it) have been undeniable.
A unique, high-end product, recognized internationally as one of the best ever.
Able to stretch the skin from wrinkles and deflate the bags as well as to lighten dark circles. One of the best eye serums for wrinkles overall. It’s certainly not “natural”, but succeed against aging in an indisputable way.

- Very effective for wrinkle and age prevention, dullness and dryness

- Some third-party vendors sell fakes on Amazon. (I would recommend to buy on Amz only when “Ships from and sold by Amazon.com”)
Best under eye wrinkle treatment – Shiseido Retinol Eye Mask
7. Shiseido – Benefiance Pure Retinol Eye Mask
Instead of an eye wrinkle cream, what we see now one of the best wrinkle treatments I know as today.
The Shiseido smoothing eye mask.
For the uninitiated, an eye contour mask is a device soaked in active ingredients that has to be left in contact with the skin for a certain period to perform its function.
It has the advantage that these masks are usually disposable, so the active ingredients are always “fresh” and can perform their function at the time of contact with the skin.
The Shiseido eye mask is a product that, by now, has become famous globally. Of all the masks I have seen or been able to try, it is the one that has by far shown me the best results.
Shiseido speaks of results from the first application.
Well, results are truly impressive. The eye-look appeared illuminated, and small wrinkles smoothed until they almost disappeared. The part around the eye appeared hydrated and bright.
Furthermore, it addresses the appearance of under-eye dark circles and puffiness to illuminate and awaken.
It is also interesting to read the ingredients.
In addition to retinol, the formula is very rich. We find a cocktail of plant extracts and anti-wrinkle agents, with a good percentage of hyaluronic acid and hydroxyproline to stimulate the production of collagen.
The “Pure retinol Micro” patent is a complex of retinol and vitamin extracts (Chlorella extract, Mukurossi extract and Gambir extract) which have an immediate smoothing effect and a strong antioxidant power.
The real downside is that this is a quite expensive treatment, because of the disposable sheets that cannot be reused.
Nevertheless, this is one of the few eye wrinkle treatments that can get an immediate effect on bags and dark circles as well as unequivocal lifting on wrinkles.
An effect that will last will last 10-14 hours, on average.
So, would I recommend this product as eye wrinkle treatment?
Absolutely yes. It is undoubtedly one of the best wrinkle treatments, especially for those looking for immediate results, maybe to show on a special occasion.

- Immediate visible results, after literally minutes of application
- Brightener and smoothing effect that lasts up to 12 hours
- Serious appearance improvement of under-eye dark circles and puffiness
- Perfect for visible results in the short term (ideal for special occasions)
- Very expensive when used for medium to long term results (3 applications per week)
- Sacrificed hydration in favor of the lifting effect
Best anti wrinkle eye cream – Shiseido Revival Eye Treatment
6. Shiseido – Glow Revival Eye Treatment, 0.54oz
I managed to get my hands on the Shiseido Bio-Performance anti aging eye cream for the first time thanks to a colleague, very passionate about Asian products.
Shiseido, for the uninitiated, is one of the TOP Japanese brands, as well as a milestone of beauty worldwide.
The interesting thing about the Glow Revival Eye Treatment is that the applicator is based on the traditional Asian Kassa massage technique, so you can see an immediate effect when you apply it. The tone improves and the whole treated area becomes brighter (hence its name, “glow”).
The contribution of these effects derives mostly from the presence of Caffeine (which stimulates circulation), from paeonia extract (paeonia suffruticosa root extract) and from Crataegus Monogyna L flowers which has significant antioxidant properties.
This treatment is based on the principle linked to an increase in subcutaneous circulation. The formula is created to activate the capillaries around the eyes in order to strengthen them and stimulate the flow of oxygen around the surface of the skin.
Also, noteworthy, is the presence of Saccharomyces which in vitro has shown to have regenerative and protective properties of the tissues.
Finally, the excellent presences of hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C close, ensuring hydration of the skin for several hours.
These ingredients, I suppose with reasonable certainty, form what is the Shiseido patented system, called RenoCycle, which has the aim of promoting cell turnover (and consequently age repair properties) by improving the appearance of the skin structure.
The results of the cream are to be evaluated in 1 month (minimum) with daily application.
Personally, I can say that I have seen excellent results in the medium to long term, with a brighter and healthier aspect of the whole area including bags and dark circles.

Best eye cream for wrinkle made in the USA – StriVectin Intensive
5. StriVectin – Intensive Eye Concentrate, 1oz
StriVectin, headquartered in New York, is one of the fastest-growing anti-aging skin care brands in the United States.
And, personally, for some years now it is one of my favorite brands.
StriVectin is a collection of smart, targeted solutions for aging that combine high-performance skincare ingredients with their patented NIA-114 technology to deliver visible and real results.
Intensive Eye Concentrate is one of StriVectin’s bestsellers well known both in the USA and in Europe and objectively a product capable of giving excellent results.
In my experience, it works quite better as eye cream for wrinkles, than for under-eye circles and puffiness. In fact, it is the lifting effect that manages to make it a superior quality product.
As we can see from the INCI, we find many ingredients, many of which are not natural at all.
We find synthetic preservatives (such as chlorphenesin, BHTor tetrasodium edta) as well as high quantities of silicones (acrylic acid copolymer, dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane).
We also find high concentrations of propylene glycol, that despite being recognized as safe, may cause allergy to some of us.
This is to say that there are undoubtedly several non-natural ingredients. So, if we are looking for a natural eye cream, perhaps this eye wrinkle cream is not for you.
However, the properties are really interesting.
This eye wrinkle cream is a deep moisturizer thanks to high amounts of glycerin, capric triglyceride, and sodium hyaluronate.
As for the anti-aging effect, the ingredients are very numerous.
Malus Fruit Cell, Plankton, Nannochloropsis Oculata, Zingiber Root, Lepidium Sativum, just to list some of the natural extracts that bring a strong antioxidant power and anti-free radical effect.
These ingredients give a huge intake of vitamin B3, (which, added to myristyl nicotinate give the patented “NIA-114 complex”) and do all the fine lines under eyes fighting work in the long term.
But not only. We also find several peptides (Dipeptide-2, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Tetrapeptide-21) which guarantee a significant stimulation of fibroblasts in the production of new collagen.
All in all, this eye wrinkle cream may really be one of the best firming eye creams.
Yes, we find a wide use of silicones, but remember also that silicones enhance moisturization by attracting water to the skin, and help “plumping” wrinkles, greatly improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

- Visibly reduces the appearance of lines in the eye area (short term silicones, long term peptides)
- Excellent protection against oxidative stress (many antioxidant extracts, anti-free radicals)
- Fair hydration both on dry or oily skin
- Light texture, make up applies perfectly fine on top of it
- Not dramatic improvement of dark circles and puffiness
Best eye cream for sensitive skin – NeoStrata eye cream
4. NeoStrata – Sin Active Eye Therapy, 0.5 oz
Neostrata eye wrinkle cream is definitely one of the best anti aging eye creams to get an excellent value for money.
Neostrata is a US based company, born in the 70s. Since then it has become one of the most popular cosmetic brands in the US market, especially for customers that aims more at results than appearances.
Let’s start with the ingredients. The main ones include caffeine, plant stem cells, hyaluronic acid and various vitamins from medicinal herb extracts. What catches the eye, however, is the presence of glucosamine in high concentration. It is the centerpiece of all Neostrata products.
NeoGlucosamine is a mixture of amino acids that stimulates cell turnover and appears to be able to firm the skin.
It is very useful if we have superficial imperfections: this technology gently exfoliates the epidermis to reveal new fresh cells, trying to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but above all by identifying hyperpigmented or acneic points giving a clearly more uniform complexion.
As light exfoliant, this cream helps shed dead skin cells and reveal the newer, brighter layers underneath by acting on the stratum corneum. Useful in case of dark spots, scars, or blemishes.
Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy is a very interesting cream, because it is one of the few cosmetics products supported by independent clinical studies.
Overall it is an eye area with a mix of ingredients that I find really interesting and well thought out.
From Malus Domestica fruit cell culture extracts, also known as apple stem cells, which are a recognized ingredient for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
We then move on to peptides: there is Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, a peptide known for its ability to reduce wrinkles because it stimulates the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid.
In short, we are talking about a complete eye contour by many aspects.
Not only we find exfoliating properties, but also significant anti-aging active ingredients (antioxidants and peptides) and good hydration thanks to hyaluronic acid.
I also consider the effect on bags and dark circles to be of a high level thanks to the good amount of caffeine.
In conclusion, one of the best anti aging eye creams capable of effectively helping against lines, puffiness and dark circles.
An eye cream for wrinkles suitable for any age.

- Very light texture

Best anti aging eye cream for 50s and over – SkinCeuticals Eye Treatment
3. SkinCeuticals – A.G.E. Eye Complex, 0.5oz
As US-based company, you probably know SkinCeuticals cosmetics.
A.G.E. Eye Complex is a lifting eye cream specifically designed to achieve immediate results, flattening fine lines and also working through “optical diffusers” that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles.
For this reason and many others, I consider it one of the best anti aging eye cream for 50s.
The formula is based on a high amount of glycerin to make the cream highly moisturizing and on flavonoids and peptides.
This anti-aging eye cream can get us visible results in just a few days. The INCI is partially compromised (given the widespread use of silicones), but in any case, it is a lifting eye cream that keeps its promises.
As reported by the manufacturer, we find flavonoids in the formula (due to the blueberry extract).
Flavonoids are among the most powerful antioxidants known in the vegetable kingdom. They carry out the action of scavengers of free radicals, but also protect against the damage of an excess of solar radiation in the UV-B spectrum.
This cream contains “optical diffusers”, which is ingredients capable of improving radiance and appearance of dark circles and small lines
In my opinion, however, the real added value lies in the use of peptides in the formula, which have real ability to “reconstruct” the cellular matrix giving excellent results in terms of smoothing out even deep wrinkles.
Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 is a type of synthetic peptide capable of communicating with fibroplasts. In fact, it acts as a messenger for the skin stimulating the regeneration of collagen in the dermis and improving the epidermal barrier.
In the same way Palmitoyl oligopeptide can reduce wrinkles to a similar extent without the side effects of retinol. Both retinol and palmitoyl can preserve and renew collagen in skin damaged by ultraviolet light. Therefore, products containing palmitoyl oligopeptide may also protect users’ skin from UV light.
Against puffiness and dark circles I appreciate the presence of Dipeptide-2.
Dipeptide-2 inhibits the enzyme ACE that causes fluid retention and interferes with lymphatic drainage. Its structure resembles lipids found in the epidermis of the skin that help skin retain moisture. Dipeptide-2 is good for skin condition and can help treat dark circles or puffiness around the eyes.
As I mentioned earlier, this eye wrinkle cream is unbalanced towards the lifting power rather than the quality of the ingredients.
So we will find parabens, PEG, silicones and synthetic preservatives (such as chlorphenesin).
Let’s not be frightened. The cream is exceptional from the lifting point of view, but perhaps not suitable for those looking for a product as natural as possible.
For this reason, for me it is one of the best anti aging eye cream for 50s and over. Because it will be able to fill and plump wrinkles, even the deepest ones, more than any organic product currently on the market.

Best anti aging eye cream – Sisley L’integral Anti-age Eye Contour
2. Sisley – L’integral Anti-age Eye Contour Cream, 0.5oz
Sisley Paris is one of the most appreciated brands in the world.
The brand was started in 1976 by Hubert d’Ornano, in France. We could say that beauty was in the family DNA since his father was the cofounder of Lancome!
Today it is a cosmetic company that is having a global success thanks of the quality of its cutting-edge active ingredients.
Anyway, Sisley Anti-age Eye Contour Cream is a specific eye wrinkle cream designed to smooth out wrinkles both on the sides of the eyes and around the lips.
And to date, it is, in my opinion, probably the best eye cream for wrinkles for the effectiveness of the results.
So, let’s see the ingredients!
To be a high-end brand, it is much richer in plant extracts than the average. Impossible here for me to analyze them all.
We find shea butter (in very high concentration!), hyaluronic acid, and plant extracts that give a nutritious and antioxidant mix of vitamins B, C and E. But in addition to these, some ingredients are real “goodies” and I think they are the ones that has made the formulation so appreciated all over the world.
To start, Oat seed extract. Oat seed extract creates is known for creating a continuous, stretchy and flexible 3D mesh on the skin’s surface which, as it retracts, smoothes the skin, thereby giving an immediate lifting sensation.
The presence of Lindera extract is also interesting. This active, when used on topic emulsions, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, brightens and hydrates the skin for a more youthful appearance.
The presence of Soy peptide extract is also very interesting.
Soy peptides stimulate fibroblast proliferation and increase collagen and elastin synthesis. This results in firmer-looking skin. Soy Peptides are used to help prevent proteinase activity (as a result of exposure to UV light and ozone) from degrading collagen bundles in the skin. They can also help to lighten hyperpigmentation and act as an anti-irritant, reducing inflammation.
In addition to the strong lifting and anti-aging power, we find many ingredients useful to fight dark circles and puffiness.
We find Persian Acacia extract (against brown circles), Atlas Cedar extract (against blue circles), Caffeine (that reduces puffiness and dark circles) and Passion fruit extract (fights against puffiness).
In total, the many plant extracts present (and there are about a dozen) contribute to the protection and antioxidant function of the cream. Probably the best eye cream for crow’s feet to date.
An eye antiaging cream with antioxidant, draining (activates microcirculation), lifting and anti-wrinkle properties. With effects both in the immediate (1-2 weeks) and in the long term. Suitable for any age.
Not by chance, an antiwrinkle eye cream whose reputation has gone all around the world. And, without any doubt, one of the few eye wrinkle creams that always guarantees unquestionable results.

Best eye cream for wrinkle (lifting effect) – Cellcosmet Eye Contour Cream
1. Cellcosmet – Cellular Eye Contour Cream, 1oz
Based in Le Mont-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland, Cellap Laboratoire is a Swiss multinational, which designs superior quality cosmetic products. The strong point of the company is the high commitment in R&D of new active ingredients, aiming for the best possible results on cosmetic field.
To be honest, the brand is not so famous, but despite that, Cellap antiaging creams and phyto and cellular products always contain cutting-edge, highly technical formulations.
Cellcosmet Cellular Eye Contour Cream is, in my opinion, one of the best eye creams for wrinkle in the world.
This antiaging eye cream is particularly famous as a “technical” product, and is one of those creams that guarantee otherwise unexpected results.
I learned about this brand thanks to a collaboration with some Paris makeup artists. Since then, I have discovered that it is a well-known product among several European actresses.
But let’s start with the ingredient’s analysis.
Part of the ingredients are under patent, therefore it becomes very hard to do a complete analysis.
However according to the manufacturer’s analyzes, the eye contour has a revitalizing cellular component with about 11% active and stabilized bio-integral cells.
The active ingredients include Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Fibronectin, and Glycosaminoglycans.
Tocopheryl Acetate and Ascorbyl Palmitate act as carriers of antioxidant vitamins. Respectively, they are Vitamins E and C antioxidant that bring to the formula a strong anti-free radicals effect.
Fibronectin (FN) mediates a wide variety of cellular interactions with the extracellular matrix (ECM) and plays important roles in cell adhesion, migration, growth and differentiation.
As is true for all proteins, regardless of their origin, it’s a good water-binding agent for skin.
Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans are widely used in skin care products and cosmetics because of their ability to bind with water efficiently and increase depth hydration, improving the elasticity and firmness of the skin.
They are easily accepted into the skin because of their positive charge, and can moisturize the skin, as well as dramatically improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by minimizing the depth of wrinkles on skin. In the end are well known for maintaining skin’s firmness and elasticity, with high-repair effect too.
This eye contour cream is made for all skin types, but is not exclusively for the skin around the eyes, it can also be used on the skin around the lips as well.
The texture of this cream is truly exceptional. Made from fine, smooth, easily-absorbed, and non-greasy emulsion which makes it an excellent make-up base.
In conclusion, I do believe that this is one of the best eye creams for wrinkle currently on the market. It is a not too sponsored product, but it is a “technical” product, of which I have seen truly outstanding results.
Very used by several actresses here in Europe (and by at least a couple of TV presenters. I’ll probably never be able to afford it, but in my opinion remains the best eye cream for wrinkle, and one of the few high-end eye creams that worth the price.
