In all the years I’ve been using anti-aging skincare, my biggest challenge has been finding products that deliver results around the eye area. The crow’s feet, dark circles, and puffiness are endlessly stubborn, so I’m always on the lookout for exciting advances that might tackle these concerns.
My latest discovery: SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Advanced Eye ($116), a next-generation eye cream and the brand’s second product formulated with its revolutionary anti-glycation technology (the first was a face cream). The eye cream fights multiple signs of aging including crepiness, crow’s feet, dark circles, dullness, and lack of firmness, and was so anticipated there was a waiting list months before its launch.
