This eye cream helps protect the delicate and stressed eye area from the aging effects of UVA/UVB rays and hydrates to renew smoothness and suppleness to skin. Shorea stenoptera butter and avocado oil work together to condition and hydrate for smoother skin.

Caffeine reduces puffiness, retinol supports natural renewal to help restore skin's youthfulness, and light diffusers soften appearance of fine lines and dark circles. Environmental Shield Essential-C Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 15 / PA +++ is recommended as a Step 3 moisturizer to protect the eye area in any Murad Environmental Shield regimen. It hydrates, smoothes, and shields skin from UV damage to reduce eye area aging as part of Dr. Murad's inclusive health system of care.

Dermatologist developed. Tested on people, not animals. Formulated without sulfates and phthalates.
Gently pat a small amount onto the brow bone and beneath the eye.

          Burns and makes eyes water!

              Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 15 / PA++:

              I pretty much use Murad exclusively for all my skin care needs, save for a couple products on an irregular basis. I really needed an eye cream, so when this finally came on the market (yes, all those years ago...) I was ecstatic. Not only was it Murad which I generally trust and have been using for quite a few years now, but it was an eye cream that was missing in my regimen and it had spf! (My ghostly pale complexion needed a good eye cream with spf!) I bought it immediately and took it home, excited to try it out.
              *insert Regan from The Exorcist voice* IT BUUUUUUUUURRRNNNNSSSS!
              Seriously, I tried multiple times to love this product, but it makes my eyes water like no tomorrow, which eventually leads to my eyes burning. I still have it in my rather minimalist skin care collection hoping that one day I can actually tolerate it. (We didn't have an Ulta even remotely near us, so I wasn't going to take it back since the amount of money spent on gas for taking it back would have surpassed the amount of money I would get back.) Since that time, they've opened an Ulta roughly an hour away.
              But yes, after all these years, the trauma of burning sensation/watery eyes stuck with me. So much so, that I don't understand how this product has such a decent overall rating.
              I love (most) Murad products but this was a total absolute NO for me.

                      I have no complaints about this product. I wish it was a bit cheaper, but you pay for quality, and this little bottle lasts me approximately 4 months in the summer, and 6 months in the winter. So not bad for the results and protection you want. It soaks right in, and doesn't leave a film. I can put my eye makeup on almost immediately after application. It doesn't break me out, and I feel good about the SPF. I'm probably going to purchase another type of Murad eye cream for evening, since I like this so well.

                        This cream is nice but it has dry clumps because of the dispenser. The product dries out at the spout so every time you use it you get a little dry clump.

                                Are there any ingredients that will cause more harm then good over long term use? I've been hearing natural ingredients are better including natural sunscreens not chemical ones.

                                  Our Essential-C Eye Cream is safe to use over a long period of time. In fact by using it consistently the broad spectrum SPF 15 PA++ will help slow the aging process by protecting the delicate eye area from UV rays and environmental aggressors.

                                  A:

                                  Proper application of the Essential-C Eye Cream is to only apply a small amount onto the orbital bone only. Don't worry, throughout the day it will migrate down to the upper lids. But if you apply it directly onto the lids it will most likely make it's way into your eyes causing you to tear up.

                                  The biggest differences is the SPF. Some people find that an SPF that close to their eye area can be irritating. If you do not have that concern then i would go with this so you can get the SPF protection.
