13 Best Retinol Eye Creams to Fight Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Ilia’s motto has always been skin-first, so it comes as no surprise that its foray into skincare would arrive as an eye cream. What’s different about this one is that it’s formulated with sea fennel extract, a plant-based retinol that brightens and firms the skin. “If you have a darker skin tone, don’t let the pinkish tan color worry you; it absorbs into your skin without leaving any cast,” shares Danielle James, Digital Beauty Director, ELLE.com.

Key ingredients: Sea fennel extract, avocado oil

Size: 0.5 fl. oz.

Credo Beauty star rating: 4.3/5 stars

An ELLE editor says: “Not sure how long you should be massaging the cream under your eye, but the ceramic applicator feels too good under my eye to use for only a few seconds. On one side of the applicator, there’s a tiny hole dispensing the product so that you can flip the tube over and use the massager tool to really work the product in. I love how airy the cream feels under my eye and how rejuvenated I look when I wake up.”—Nerisha Penrose
