The product

Finding an anti-ageing eye cream that helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles AND improves skin firmness, texture and tone, all when you have sensitive skin, can be a tall order. Generally, if you want a hardworking anti-ageing formula, you get a high levels of actives that may work on wrinkles, but they’re too irritating for sensitive skin types.

La Roche-Posay Redermic C Eyes is an exception to the stereotype. The combination of highly-concentrated vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and La Roche-Posay’s Thermal Spring Water effectively tackle all the visible signs of ageing on your wish list, while also ensuring your sensitive skin stays hydrated and soothed.

This eye cream is more than just an anti-ageing superstar, it also brightens, de-puffs and minimises redness around the delicate under-eye skin.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent La Roche-Posay Redermic C Eyes, as well as La Roche-Posay Respectissime Volume Mascara to a panel of women aged between 25 and 55 who were searching for an eye cream that would deliver anti-ageing benefits while still being suitable for sensitive eyes and skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about La Roche-Posay Redermic C Eyes.

 The texture of the eye cream: Reviewers found that although the eye cream’s texture was rich and velvety, it was fast-absorbing and felt lightweight once it melted into skin. In fact, they commented that the cream did such a good job of smoothing and filling in fine lines around the eye area that it made makeup apply more easily and evenly.

How effective the eye cream was at treating visible signs of ageing: Our Review Crew® members loved the fact that the eye cream tackled so many of their anti-ageing skin concerns. They identified a reduction in fine lines, dark circles and puffiness, as well as an improvement in skin tone, texture and firmness as some of the product’s most impressive qualities.

That the eye cream helped reduce signs of sensitivity: Members were very pleased with the soothing and hydrating qualities of the eye cream. They commented that it helped combat signs of skin irritation, such as redness and dryness, and reduced the severity of skin conditions like eczema.  

The verdict

“Occasionally I experience small patches of eczema around the corners of my eyes and every single eye cream so far stung slightly if I tried to apply it there. This cream is quite the opposite, it feels almost soothing on the skin.”

“I get really bad allergies, usually associated with hay fever but also for no reason sometimes, so I have to be careful what I put on my eyes. I haven’t had any problems with this vitamin C rich cream, if anything my eyes look brighter, smoother and are less prone to redness (yes!!). I use it day and night and definitely noticed results.”
Review Crew® member
“Unlike many, it wasn't oily or greasy and more importantly, the smoothing affect was obvious from the start. It also doesn't sit on top of the skin like other creams, which can peel or combine with makeup. It was easily absorbed and genuinely felt like it plumped the area to eradicate fine lines, even in a hot Australian summer.”
