Hello, my darlings! In this post I bring you my review of CeraVe Eye Repair Cream, a cream designed to combat bags and dark circles that I have been using for the last month.
How to use CeraVe Eye Repair Cream
This cream is designed for daily use on all skin types. The mode of use that I have been following is as follows.
I use it within my morning and evening facial routine. First of all, I wash the face. If it is at night, I will have previously removed makeup. Second step: I apply this repairing cream for the eye contour from CeraVe. Thirdly, I apply the serum. Finally, I use my treatment cream, which is different in my morning and evening routine.
As you can see, they are the same steps as for any other eye contour. As for the application itself, I try to avoid the eyelid area and under the eyebrow. I apply with touches on the area of the dark circle, under the eye.
It is important not to apply products on the skin under the eyebrows because they will add weight to the eye and will make it look more fallen in the long run.
According to CeraVe, the benefits of this cream are as follows: “repair the protective barrier of the delicate skin around the eye. Reduce the appearance of dark circles and bags for brighter, smoother-looking skin. Its unscented formula is suitable for sensitive skin.” Let’s see if it’s true!

Below is the list of ingredients of CeraVe’s eye contour. In summary, the main ingredient of this cream are the three essential ceramides (ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II) and hyaluronic acid.
Ceramides are a cosmetic ingredient that has become super fashionable and also the star product of the CeraVe brand, in general.
All CeraVe products contain the three ceramides essential to protect the skin’s natural barrier.

My review of CeraVe Eye Repair Cream
As always, I tell you about my skin type before leaving you the review, to give you an idea. I have combination skin and my main concern is fine lines. In the eye area, I do not have very marked wrinkles, but I do have dark circles.
This repairing cream has a rather dense consistency. You have to make sure you spread it well, because it is not light at all. Where you throw it, there it stays.
Let’s start with the benefits of this CeraVe eye contour. In my case, I see the area of the dark circle, under the fullest eye, so to speak. The few expression lines seem to be slightly fine-tuned.
As for the negative part of this review, because in my opinion it is a bit strong for sensitive skin. Since I’ve started using it, I notice that sometimes my eyes itch or water a little, especially at the end of the day. It is as if when mixed with the makeup of the eyes it becomes a little irritating when it comes into contact with the eye.
As for dark circles, I think it works if you want the dark area to gain a little volume and look lighter. It’s nothing to write home about, nor would I stop using it just for that. But if you have sensitive eye skin, it may be good to know. If you have sensitive skin I would recommend Avène’s soothing eye contour.
I also have to say that I’m not sure how well this bag cream works.
As you know, bags and dark circles are two different problems presented by the skin around the eye and can not always be fought with the same cream. Perhaps it is too unctuous to be able to reduce the swelling of the bags.

Cerave vs Neutrogena eye contour
CeraVe’s repairing eye cream reminds me of Neutrogena’s. Another cream for the eye contour of pharmacy, with a fairly affordable price and with similar effects. Both contain hyaluronic acid.
In short: in my opinion it is a repairing cream that works well for dark circles and helps with fine lines. If you have sensitive skin it may irritate you a little. The skin looks hydrated and is good value for money.
This repairing cream for the eye contour of CeraVe is within the range of Cerave Normal Skins. They have other specific lines for dry and oily skin.
The rest of the products in CeraVe’s range for normal skin are:
Cerave AM Moisturizing Facial Lotion
Cerave PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion
Cerave hand repair cream
I hope this review of the repairing cream for the eye contour of CeraVe has served you if you are considering buying it.
See you soon with more beautiful things.
Lots of love,
