Ingredients

Brand Overview

Total Eye Care SPF 15 lists only titanium dioxide as the active ingredient, making this a gentle sunscreen to use around the eyes. Iron oxides, talc, and mica provide a brightening effect to shadowed areas, while lightweight emollients moisturize. The formula lacks significant amounts of antioxidants and interesting skin-identical ingredients, but is a decent option for normal to dry skin.

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

A technically-advanced eye treatment cream to help protect and repair the delicate eye area. Gentle alpha hydroxy acids smooth while firming plant extracts retexturize the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of puffiness and fine lines. Optical light diffusors help diminish dark circles, instantly restoring translucency and freshness to the skin. A chemical-free sunscreen helps to shield against further damage. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

Dermalogica At-A-Glance

According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.

The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
