These Are The Best SPF Eye Creams For Protecting Your Delicate Under-Eyes

These Are The Best SPF Eye Creams For Protecting Your Delicate Under-Eyes

We use an eye cream, in part, because the delicate skin around our eyes require special TLC and can become irritated by the potent ingredients in our creams and serums. So, it only makes sense to apply the same logic to our SPF. The skin around our eyes is among the thinnest and most delicate on the body, making it susceptible to irritation and damage, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. And, due to our hesitation to bring SPF too close to our waterlines, our under-eyes are often left susceptible to burn.

So while the majority of sunscreen formulas are suitable to be brought up underneath the eye without the risk of irritation, if you have sensitive skin, live in fear of formulas that pill under concealer or just want the peace of mind that you’re using an ultra-gentle formula, an SPF infused eye cream might be a product for you to try.

SUPERGOOP! Bright-Eyed 100% Mineral Eye Cream SPF40

  1. Haven’t tried SPF eye creams before and I probably should be using one during the day. The Clarins one looks nice and easy to apply. The price isn’t listed on the article so I clicked on the link and it’s $71.

  2. No haven’t. Dr. Roebuck spf50 works so well to go all over, eye area too. No burn and so lightweight. From this list, Supergoop looks as the only option to try. Other ones, eye burn.

  3. I’ve used the philosophy ultimate miracle worker spf15 which is quite a nice eye cream although I don’t usually worry about an spf in my eye creams. I’m a firm believer in always wearing sunglasses when outside.

  4. I love using eye creams and I am very keen to try the ones with spf because not many SPF creams agree with my eye area causing my eyes to water or burn. Since its an eye cream with SPF, I am convinced it won’t cause any irritation while taking care of my under eye area.

  5. I need to try these products. My eyes get so irritated in summer when I’m wearing sun cream – these might be the solution to stop my eyes watering so much in the sun
