The best SPF-infused eye creams to cop for brighter, tighter undereyes

Starting to notice fine lines and texture creeping up under your peepers? You need to up your SPF game—here are the products you need to do it.

Picture this: You’re armed with your favourite sunscreen. You’ve taken all the right steps—kept the bottle in a cool, dry place; dispensed two heaping strips of product onto your fingers; applied said product onto your face, covering every last square inch—before you head outside. It feels good. You’re protected for the day. Nothing’s going to get in your way, not UV, not pollutants… or so you thought.

As soon as you step outside, it starts. The sweating. Ow. Your eyes! It burns. Your sunscreen has made its way into your eyeball and—oh. Oh! Help! You can’t see! You’re tearing up and it has made everything worse. In a panic, you desperately wipe as much product off as you can, and it comes at the cost of your beautifully even application.

You contemplate reapplying, but you realise you’ll land yourself right back where you started. So, instead, you risk the wrinkles and power through the day. Does this sound like you? It doesn’t have to be this way.

Introducing: SPF eye creams, AKA sunscreens formulated specifically for your eyes. No stinging, no tears, and the added benefits of a targeted formulation. Dramatics aside, whether you’re looking to turn back the clock and stop premature ageing in its tracks or you just want a solution to your stinging eyes, we’ve got your back.
