Top 10 Eye Creams With SPF

Protect Your Under-Eyes From Sun Damage And Wrinkles With These SPF-Packed Eye Creams

Shopping for eye cream can often feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. Like most skincare products, it isn’t a one-size-fits-all experience. There are a myriad of different factors to consider. The most obvious is skin type, or how it reacts to weather, ingredients, and lifestyle choices. The feel of a product, especially eye cream, is also important. A lightweight gel is going to feel different than a heavy cream, for example. Plus, the rest of the routine must be taken into consideration. Will a certain foundation on top of the eye cream blend seamlessly, alter the foundation’s shade, or worse, cause an allergic reaction?

Once summer arrives, shoppers add yet another must-have to their list of eye cream essentials: sun protection. Thankfully, the options aren’t in short supply, as eye cream with SPF is about as popular as eye cream without. Alone, eye cream nourishes and rebalances the skin around the eye area, which just so happens to be thinnest layer of skin on the face. With the added benefit of SPF, it not only provides protection from UV exposure but also helps slow down the inevitable appearance of fine lines, dark circles, and other aging spots that are accelerated by the former.

The Rankings


Eucerin Anti-Age Hyaluron-Filler Eye Cream SPF 15 + Uva Protection

Our Score4.05

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: Dyrness-prone shoppers love that this anti-aging eye cream is chock-full of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring substance that acts as a lubricant and when infused into beauty products, helps the skin to better retain moisture. Also combined with SPF protection is arctiin, an active ingredient proven to boost collagen production. 

SOMETHING ELSE TO KNOW: The formula is also ophthalmologist-tested and is made without fragrance, a win for sensitive skin types.

PCA Skin Sheer Tint Eye Triple Complex Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Our Score4.15

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: This formula is a whopping 15% zinc oxide for UV protection, while the majority of the remaining active ingredients are peptides, which reduce the appearance of fine lines with continued use. The finish is also a sheer tint that cancels out the darkness in under-eye circles for a brighter appearance.

APPLICATION TIP: Apply a small layer, but give it a few seconds to absorb before applying concealer or foundation. This can be used as a makeup primer or alone.

Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker Eye Cream SPF 15

Our Score4.15

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: Clinical studies prove that this multitasker is as potent as it claims to be. It tackles a gang of common skincare issues with brightening vitamin C, de-puffing caffeine, protective SPF, and multiple hydrators, including algae extract and soybean oil. 

RAVE REVIEW: “I bought this eye cream to go with my face routine because I tan excessively and am starting to notice crazy, ridiculous crows feet. The Philosophy Rep told me to give it two months to work. I've been using it for a little over a week, and my crows feet are completely gone. Let me repeat. THEY ARE COMPLETELY GONE. Honestly, the price is a bit steep, but it will literally last years, you only use a teeny tiny bit and it spreads easily. My next trip to Ulta, I will be getting the Miracle Worker for full face.”

DERMAdoctor DD Eye Dermatologically Defining Eye Radiance Cream SPF 30

Our Score4.2

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: Shoppers who want sun protection and for their dark circles to disappear will get pretty close to both with this clean and cruelty-free solution. Its formula is mineral-based and infused with mica, a microfine powder that tones down darkness without creasing into fine lines.

APPLICATION TIP: This enhances the impact of concealer, but if you're wearing it to the beach or swimming pool, layer it with a water-resistant sunscreen.

revive Sensitif Eye Cream SPF 30 Broad Spectrum

Our Score4.25

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: This eye cream truly does it all, but let’s go over the standout ingredients. Shea butter and avocado moisturize, a trio of antioxidants (ginger extract, calendula, and vitamin E) protect from environmental factors, prebiotics scare off redness and bad bacteria, and of course, reef-safe, mineral-based SPF shields the skin from UV over-exposure. 

APPLICATION TIP: The applicator tip is a cooling zamac hardware that should be used to blend in the formula and decrease puffiness.

Coola Full Spectrum 360° Day SPF 30 & Night Organic Eye Cream Duo

Our Score4.25

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: Two products for the price of one? Budget-conscious shoppers would be crazy to pass on this day and night eye cream duo. The day side is infused with vitamin C and broad spectrum sun protection to brighten and shield the under-eye area, while the night side is infused with resveratrols, plant-based anti-inflammatories, that provide repairing and restorative benefits to the skin.

APPLICATION TIP: As with all Coola products, the formula is also vegan and sourced with mostly organic ingredients.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Eye Cream Sunscreen SPF 15

Our Score4.25

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: UV overexposure and the stresses of daily life tend to show up around the eyes before they do anywhere else on the face. This SPF-infused eye cream uses a proprietary blend of carefully researched ingredients, including I-seryl and antioxidant-rich Idebenone, to reduce puffiness and even out skin tone.

APPLICATION TIP: The formula also includes an exclusive botanical blend called Chromacare, whose primary job is to boost collagen production.

SkinCeuticals Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50

Our Score4.45

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: Makeup wearers love how the sheer tint of this protective eye cream blends seamlessly with concealer. That’s probably thanks to a formula that includes silica, an anti-caking property, and ceramides, which provide moisture as well as smoothing benefits.

APPLICATION TIP: Both titanium dioxide and zinc oxide provide sun protection, and combined, they take up 13% of the formula.

Colorescience Total Eye 3-in-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35

Our Score4.5

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: Here’s an eye cream that diminishes the appearance of certain skin issues while also treating the root cause of them. The brand’s proprietary Total Eye Complex combines five active ingredients—including sea water and marine microalgae—to treat the capillaries under the skin that impact firmness and collagen production.

APPLICATION TIP: It’s available in four sheer tints: fair, medium, tan, and deep.

Supergoop! Bright-Eyed 100% Mineral Eye Cream SPF 40

Our Score4.55

WHAT SHOPPERS SHOULD KNOW: Supergoop! is known for its top-notch sunscreen, especially its Unseen Sunscreen, so it should come as no surprise that the accompanying eye cream is just as popular. Its pink tint may look intimidating at first, but fear not–it actually gives the under-eye area a glowy “awake” look and preps the skin for smooth makeup application. 

DOCTOR-APPROVED: “The surgeon who lifted my eyelids recommended using sunblock around the eye. Most migrate into the eye and can do harm. She recommended Supergroup products, and my dermatologist looked at it and agreed. The light pink hue brightens the under-eye area too. A win win win.”
