Eye Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for...Eye Cream?


Can a good eye cream really make or break your skincare routine? YES it can! The eyes are the focal point of the face and need products specifically made for them (or at least the area around them). Tired eyes, puffy eyes, dark circles, crow's feet... to effectively treat these telltale signs of, well, life, you need products made just for them. You wouldn't fight acne with Tylenol, so don't assume your regular face creams will effectively work on your eye areas either.

Why do the eyes need special attention? The skin underneath your eyes is thinner than elsewhere on your face, and is oh-so-delicate. Using heavy creams can irritate and weigh down this area, rather that pepping it up—which is usually what we're trying to do. 

Rodan + Fields, the #1 premium skincare line in the U.S., has you covered. If you are one of the thousands saying "I have eye issues," help is here. Rodan + Fields has become a household name in skincare after first developing the popular teenage skincare line ProActiv. With an enhanced focus on adult skincare, Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields have been continuing to innovate on revolutionary products that are disrupting the skincare and anti-aging market. 

The latest product drop from Convention 2017, Bright Eye Complex, has current (and potential) customers wondering what the big deal is when their previous Multi-function Eye Cream was already a game changer. 

I'll break down the two for you here (in layman's terms that anyone can understand) so that you can pick the formula best suited for you!

Multi-Function Eye Cream

Best suited for firming the skin around the eyes and treating fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. One of the first places most women develop fine lines and wrinkles is around their eyes (aka: the dreaded crow's feet). Collagen is what keeps your skin smooth, firm, and tight. As you age, however, the skin can't make enough collagen to keep you looking like your fresh-faced 20 year old self (sigh). But, you can replace the amino acids and proteins—the building blocks of collagen—in your skin by using a peptide cream.  

Peptides are tiny little particles that the body interprets as broken collagen. Subsequently, these peptides signal the body to boost collagen production to replace the broken areas. Increased collagen means increased tightness and firmness around the eyes, which helps smooth fine lines for younger looking skin. R+F's Multi Function Eye Cream is a lightweight formula that won't weigh down your under-eye area and combines powerful peptides to make the skin appear smoother, tighter, and firmer overall.


Bright Eye Complex

Best suited for treating puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. Releasing November of 2017, Rodan + Fields Bright Eye Complex had many avid R+F fans scratching their heads, wondering how it was different from the previously released Multi-Function Eye Cream. Turns out, this formula is made specifically for those of us who simply don't get enough sleep (ever) and need an added boost of hydration, awake-ness, and brightener—all in one.


This SUPER lightweight formula goes on easy and dries fast so you can be on your way in no time at all. A combination of phytonutrients and caffeine work to firm and tone the area around the eyes to decrease puffiness quickly. An illuminator helps brighten the eyes by eliminating those dark under eye circles. And an added hydrator keeps the skin around the eyes from getting dehydrated and dry. This powerful all—in—one punch keeps you looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed despite late nights studying for tests, working overtime, or feeding a hungry baby. Whatever your conundrum, let Bright Eye Complex fool everyone into thinking you're getting your 8 hours. 

And the million dollar question...

If I want to fight fine lines, puffiness, AND dark circles can I use both? YES! You can use both the Multi Function eye cream + Bright Eye Complex if you want to treat all areas. Layer the two by first applying the Bright Eye Complex, followed by the Multi Function Eye Cream second.
