Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic + Retinol Eye Cream is an anti-aging eye cream for day and night. It moisturizes, reduces the look of fine lines and dark circles, and helps build collagen without irritating skin.
Its key ingredients are Ferulic acid, ellagic acid, and gallic acid (antioxidants); retinol (collagen booster); hyaluronic acid and ceramides (moisturize); collagen and GABA (reduce the appearance of fine lines)
The super-rich, peach-hued formula takes a couple minutes to sink into skin; it has a faint cinnamony scent.
The two titular ingredients play nicely together. Ferulic acid, a potent antioxidant, reduces collagen damage from free radicals, while retinol stimulates collagen growth. But don’t expect instant visible results. If you’re diligent about morning and evening use, the gentle, paraben-free formula will minimize crepiness, plump the delicate eye area, and reduce the appearance of dark circles, but it will take about six weeks before you notice real change. If you’re layering it under makeup in the morning, the super-thick cream might pill if you don’t wait a minute or two for it to sink in. This product prices at $68.
