Dr. Irwin's Product Review

This product goes right on the eyelids and whole eye socket area (periorbital) - it's formulated for this sensitive skin.  Here's who really needs this product: anyone who has a fair amount of sun damage and/or wrinkles around the eyes; anyone who is undergoing laser procedures around the eyes; anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors, but especially runners, cyclists, golfers, open water swimmers, and hikers/climbers; and......anyone who doesn't wear sunglasses regularly.  It doesn't sting the eyes with sweating. 

How to Use

You can use it alone.  For women, I personally like my eye cream under it and sometimes then even use a concealer over it.  It works with eye makeup well.

Ingredients

Actives are titanium 9% and zinc 4%.  I'd rather these were reversed so there was more zinc but it still blocks the UVB.  It blocks the UVA fairly well but not perfectly. Titanium Dioxide 9%, Zinc Oxide 4%.

SkinTour's Philosophy:
Skincare is your best
investment
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
