The skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most delicate on your face. This lack of depth, together with declining collagen levels and skin barrier function over time, can leave your eye area more prone to skin concerns like puffiness, dark circles, crow’s feet wrinkles, and fine lines. Adding a moisturizing eye cream to your skincare regimen can help target visible signs of aging and fatigue around your eyes, deliver all-day moisture and care to this fragile area, and help reinforce the protective skin barrier.

Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe’s range of multi-tasking eye creams are ophthalmologist-tested and suitable for use around the eye area, as well as by contact lens wearers. They’re formulated to lock in moisture and help maintain your skin’s protective barrier, with key beneficial ingredients like peptides, niacinamide, caffeine, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides. With continued use, CeraVe’s non-greasy, fast-absorbing, and fragrance-free eye creams for all skin types can help you enjoy a refreshed, hydrated, smooth, and visibly brighter under-eye area.


  • Moisturizing eye creams are skincare products specifically formulated for use on the delicate skin around your eyes. CeraVe eye creams help keep your eye area moisturized, while supporting a healthy skin barrier and targeting concerns that are specific to the eye area. With continued use, CeraVe’s range of eye creams can help hydrate, brighten, and smooth the under-eye area, while minimizing visible signs of fatigue and aging.

  • The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on your entire face, making this area particularly susceptible to visible signs of aging and fatigue. With this in mind, it’s important to remember that it may not be suitable to use your face lotion, cream, or ointment as an eye cream. Some moisturizers may include ingredients in concentrations that are too harsh for the delicate eye area. Choosing a product that’s been formulated for use on the eye area, such as an anti-aging peptide eye cream, is key to protecting and caring for the skin around your eyes.

  • CeraVe eye creams offer a range of products to choose from, including an anti-aging peptide and caffeine eye cream for bags under the eyes, fine lines, wrinkles, and eye puffiness. Additionally, we offer formulas for various under-eye concerns and skin types, including dry, combination, and even sensitive skin. There’s no exact age at which you should start using an eye cream, and the decision to include one in your routine can vary based on each individual’s preferences. CeraVe eye creams help visibly firm and reduce the look of fine lines, crow’s feet wrinkles, dark circles, and puffy eyes, which are skin concerns that can impact a wide age range.

  • To use CeraVe eye cream, dispense the cream onto your ring finger and apply in small dots around your eye contour. Next, gently blend the product onto your entire eye area—including the under-eye area, crow's feet, eyelid, and brow bone—using upward motions, until completely absorbed. Always avoid direct contact with your eyes, and if contact with eyes occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.

  • We recommend applying CeraVe eye cream once or twice daily, on a cleansed face, either alone or under makeup. Eye creams can be applied in the A.M. or P.M. after cleansing, and before your face serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen or night cream.
