5 Top Dermatologists On Their Favourite Eye Creams

If under-eye darkness, discolouration or dryness are some of your biggest bugbears, it pays to use an eye cream that actually makes a difference. With that in mind, we asked some of London’s top dermatologists to share their favourites…

Equilibrium Intensive Hydrating Eye Balm, £62.40 (was £78) | Hourglass & Intensive Hyaluronic Eye Serum, £45 | Institut Esthederm

Recommended by: Dr AJ Sturnham 

My go-to morning eye serum is currently Institut Esthederm Intensive Hyaluronic Eye Serum, but in the evening I love eye products that have a richer, balmier texture, so the Hourglass Equilibrium Eye balm is a favourite. As a busy working mum, I generally look for products that are soothing, calming and hydrating. Water-based eye serums that contain hyaluronic acid and glycerin are great for the morning, but look out for humectants such as glycerin to draw moisture in and skin-conditioning, emollient ingredients such as date seed extract and vitamin E.

Eyelift Peptides, £43 | Medik8

Recommended by: Dr Justine Kluk

This contains collagen-boosting peptides like Matrixyl 300 which can help with smoothing fine lines and brightening dark circles, but is still gentle, soothing and hydrating. It’s perfect for people who want to improve the look of the skin around the eyes, but don’t get on with retinol.

Youth Eye Complex, £115 | iS Clinical

Recommended by: Dr Anna Protasova

Known for its clinically proven formulations and results-driven products, iS Clinical makes an Eye Complex that contains ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, peptides and botanical extracts to hydrate, firm and brighten the under-eye area – all while reducing the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.

A.G.E. Advanced Eye For Dark Circles & Wrinkles, £105 | SkinCeuticals

Recommended by: Dr Alexis Granite

Peptides (short chains of amino acids which act as messengers within the skin) are a great ingredient to choose when you’re looking to rejuvenate and refresh the eye area. SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Interrupter Complex contains peptides alongside glycyrrhetinic acid, which is derived from liquorice root, and has antioxidant and brightening effects.

Flawless Nightly Eye 2% Retinoid Serum, £39 | Dr Sam's

Recommended by: Dr Sam Bunting

In truth, I find most eye creams to be over-priced moisturisers, which is what motivated me to formulate my own ideal eye product. It’s designed to strengthen, brighten and plump your eye area, leaving skin feeling refreshed and refined. It combats fine lines, dark circles and recharges your skin barrier through the power of vitamins A, B and C. This creates space in your morning routine – just apply moisturiser, SPF and go. It also contains 2% Granactive Retinoid to build collagen and stimulate cell renewal, leaving skin firm and fine lines visibly reduced, plus it’s all wrapped up in squalane, shea butter and sodium hyaluronate to pack a major hydration punch.
