FutureDerm has considerably expanded their range of products since I reviewed their fantastic Time Release Retinol 0.50 last year, and I can say without hesitation that their Vitamin CE Eye Cream 10.0 is every bit as impressive as was their first foray into the realm of high quality skincare.
It accomplishes a heretofore impossible feat — delivering 10% vitamin C (as L-ascorbic acid) and 1% vitamin E to the eye area without irritating most skin types. The creamy, hydrating formula treats undereye wrinkles, creases, and dark circles in as few as 10 days. For daytime and/or nighttime use.
Vitamin C has been clinically proven in independent research to brighten skin, alleviate the appearance of dark circles and age spots, and even skin tone with regular use over time. The undereye area is no exception, particularly in dark circles that are caused by hyperpigmentation (rather than, say, blood pooling in the area).
However, it is difficult to deliver 10% vitamin C as L-ascorbic acid + 1% vitamin E to the eye area without running the risk of irritation — until now. FutureDerm CE Eye Cream 10.0 is a creamy, hydrating formula that will not irritate most skin types. It is designed for the undereye area. Results in as little as 10 days. For daytime and/or nighttime use.
FutureDerm products are tested for safety and efficacy, and are physician-approved. Our ingredients are safe in the concentrations used in each of our products, even with typical repeated use over time. As with any product, please reserve for external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. For best results, use with a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.

Ingredients: Ascorbic Acid (antioxidant), Dimethicone, Bis Vinyl Dimethicone/ Dimethicone Copolymer (slip agent), Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone Crosspolymer-3 (slip agent), Aluminum Starch, Octenylsuccinate (emulsifier), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil (fatty acid), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil (antioxidant), Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides (hydrator), Hydroxypropyl Bispalmitamide MEA (preservative), Tocopherol Acetate (antioxidant), Fragrance (needed, trust us).
My experience: One of the very first things that I noted after I used FutureDerm Vitamin C Eye Cream for a few days was an unmistakable brightening and tightening of my under eye area. My skin quickly became brighter and more luminous with a pronounced clarity. My delicate eye area is left very soft, smooth, and taut each time that I use it-- and this combination of textural differences is very obvious both at a distance and close-up. The high concentration of Vitamin C is responsible for the fantastic brightening effects, but fear not it did not irritate the skin in my delicate eye area.
The cream is light and smooth, and sinks in and gets right to work immediately. The silicones lend the cream a lovely velvety texture and the perfect amount of slip while the Vitamin E, Avocado and Grape Seed Oils deeply moisturize the delicate eye are. This antioxidant rich formula assures the user that the anti-aging benefits are real and tangible, and with prolonged use one will definitely see a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, the brightening effects of Vitamin CE Eye Cream has radically lightened my dark circles. FutureDerm suggests that after two months of daily use that skin will, "appear brighter, dark circles due to hyperpigmentation/melanin production will be diminished, and the skin may feel firmer. It really, truly does work." I can attest to the veracity this claim, and I haven't even used it for two months yet!
The fabulous texture also serves as a wonderful base for under-eye concealer, feeling a bit like a high quality primer rather than a typical eye cream. I honestly can't think of anything that this eye cream doesn't do exceedingly well. I'm utterly thrilled by the results, and am thrilled to have discovered this eye cream that boast great efficacy, ease of use, and a fantastic tactile experience. In short, this is a fantastic eye cream all the way around!
Overall assessment: What a fantastic eye cream! It brightens, tightens, moisturizes, nourishes, reduces the appearance of dark circles, and is an antioxidant rich anti-aging powerhouse! Well done, FutureDerm, well done!
