Peter Thomas Roth Eye Overhaul Duo

Peter Thomas Roth Eye Overhaul Duo provides two eye-area moisturizers in the same jar. The Day cream provides UV-A protection with avobenzone, but this chemical is usually not recommended for use around the eyes, since it can cause inflammation and irritation on and under the eyelids. Titanium oxide and zinc oxide are usually preferred for sun protection around the eyes. The Night cream is supposed to stop puffiness under the eyes and repair skin while you sleep. Customers do not, unfortunately, wake up with puff-free eyes and wrinkle-free skin. That is because the antioxidants in the cream are ruined by contact with the air as soon as the jar is opened.

Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Repair Gel is less expensive, but no more effective. The company claims that its Firma-CELL-4 contains four proteins that have a synergistic effect on lines and wrinkles. One of the four, argireline, is well known as a smoothing agent for fine lines and wrinkles, but there is no independent research that confirms the effectiveness of the combination. Besides the proteins, the product is mostly a slip agent, which keeps it from clumping on the skin, and a film-forming agent, which keeps it from sliding off the skin at night, and preservatives.
