Count your blessings if you're not afflicted with sensitive eyes that get weepy just thinking about sunscreen or extremely fluorescent lighting. Like shampoo formulated for babies in actual, physical form or just in temperament, the following 10 gentle skincare products will do the trick—no tears attached.
Technically made for the delicate, still-prune-y skin of infants, but will work just as well on you. Think of it like how French women, purportedly the most grown-up out of all of us, wear Bonpoint perfume.
Residue-free and smells nice. Would be especially helpful if you closed your eyes when aiming at face.
Finally: an eye cream with sun protection that won't induce involuntary crying or worsen your phobia of under-eye tug-age (the kind that drives people to get Lasik).
Has the added advantages of being highly blend-able and not streaky, even under makeup.
As a guideline, products for sensitive skin are a safer bet for sensitive eyes, in that they're overall less likely to irritate. This moisturizer is gentle enough to use daily.
Will obliterate your dark circles with the power of pomegranate and green tea extracts while not making you look like you've just watched the opening scene of Up.
Tough enough to dissolve mascara without any lash loss, soft enough to not sear your eyeballs in the process.
Secret, non-stinging ingredient Peptide P-199, which could also double as an EDM band name, reduces the signs of aging.
From the brand that brought us the life-changing magic of P50, comes this oxygenating cleanser. (Note: It is not actually prohibitively expensive—just notoriously difficult to get ahold of in the U.S. But it's worth it.)
