L'ORÉAL PARIS REVITALIFT LASER RENEW, $30 TO $38.

WHY THE JURY CHOSE THEM:

Star ingredients Pro-Xylane (a natural sugar that acts as a smoothing agent) and hyaluronic acid reduce wrinkles and restore skin density. A simple test proves that this formula hits all the same targets as an antiaging laser treatment—and it's affordable!

WHAT THE JURY SAYS:

"It's pretty audacious to compare a home treatment to a dermatologic procedure—laser therapy—then guarantee that it works. But not only does this work—skin is fresher, smoother, and plumper—but it's at a price that's accessible to everyone."

"I can't say no to an eye cream with a cool, soothing applicator."

"The Pro-Xylane formula makes good on an ambitious promise [eight weeks of twice-a-day application of the eye cream is like one CO2 laser session]. What more could you want?"

"An antiaging line comparable to laser treatment—at a fraction of the cost!"

"An amazing texture, a comforting formula, and a smoothing eye cream."
