EyeSmooth is a product manufactured by Skin Doctors to treat the delicate area of skin around the eyes. This formula is supposed to work on crow’s feet and fine lines under the eyes, increase moisture retention in the skin around the eyes, and firm and smooth the entire area. The products are available for sale on the Skin Doctors website; however, the company does not appear to accept orders from customers living in the United States. The Skin Doctors website does provide information about retailers in the United States that sell EyeSmooth in their stores so consumers living in this country can purchase the product from these professionals.
EyeSmooth is one of three eye solutions offered by Skin Doctors; the other two are EyeTuck, which claims to reduce bags and puffiness, and EyeCircle, which is used to lighten dark circles. We would have preferred that the company produce a single effective eye cream that would address a combination of these concerns, since most consumers want to see multiple issues addressed at one time. We were also unable to find information on the company website regarding a money back guarantee on EyeSmooth or customer testimonials to back the product’s claims.
We are pleased to see that Skin Doctors provides a complete ingredient list for EyeSmooth along with useage instructions. The ingredients listed for EyeSmooth include: Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Acrylates Copolymer, VP/Polycarbamyl Polyglycol Ester, Hydrolyzed Sesame Protein PG – Propyl Methylsilanediol, Butylene Glycol, Carbomer, Polysorbate 20, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Glyceryl Stearate, Isopropyl Myristate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polysorbate 60, Propylene Glycol, Glycosaminoglycans, Niacinamide, Cetyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Retinol, BHT, Tricaprylin, Polymethyl Methacrylate, PEG-100 Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Lecithin, Triethanolamine, Sorbitan Stearate, Disodium EDTA.
Palmitoyl oligopeptide is also known as Matrixyl, a peptide complex that has been proven to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Sodium hyaluronate is an effective skin hydrator that can help the skin retain it moisture for a smoother appearance with fewer fine lines. We like both of these products in an anti-aging formula, especially one that addresses the challenging area around the eyes that often sees the effect of aging before the rest of the face does. However, we believe that these substances are much more effective when combined with argireline, which can relax facial muscles that lead to fine lines and wrinkles. EyeSmooth does not include argireline.
- The product contains matrixyl and sodium hyaluronate.
- The company website offers a complete ingredient list for the product.
- Argireline is not included in the EyeSmooth formula.
- We were unable to find customer testimonials.
- There does not appear to be a money back guarantee on purchases.
The Bottom Line
EyeSmooth does have some beneficial ingredients in the formula, but not enough to make this product stand out to us. EyeSmooth may also be difficult to find online for many US shoppers. We believe there are equally effective products that are more readily available in the United States.
