Revision Skincare DEJ Eye Cream vs. Alastin Skincare Restorative Eye Treatment: Product Comparison Report
We are kicking off a new blog series comparing some of our best-selling products head-to-head in case you need help making a decision. First up is a category everyone should have in their routine: eye creams!
Alastin Skincare's Restorative Eye Treatment and Revision Sincare's DEJ Eye Cream are consistently among our best-selling eye products, so we're breaking down their differences to help figure out which might be the right choice for you. [Of course, they're both popular for a reason, so you really can't go wrong with either.]
Alastin Skincare Restorative Eye Treatment ($85)
Alastin's Restorative Eye Treatment is part of their TriHex Technology® product line, containing a proprietary blend of peptides and botanicals. TriHex has been designed to help clear out old, damaged collagen and elastin from the skin and encourage the production of new, leading to healthier, more elastic, and younger-looking skin.
An all-in-one eye cream, Alastin's Restorative Eye Treatment is designed to treat multiple signs of aging as they emerge around the eye: smoothing the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines, reducing puffiness, and firming skin. It also can help to reduce the appearance of dark circles, and promote a more even skin tone.
This fragrance-free, silky, moisturizing formula feels good going onto skin, and includes a clever blend of botanicals. Silver mushroom extract encourages hydration, Mimosa tree extract improves skin firmness, and green tea extract helps to fade dark circles. This formulation is great for all skin types but has been recognized as doing especially well for those with sensitive skin.
Revision Skincare DEJ Eye Cream ($109 full size, $62 Trial Size)
If you're aren't familiar with Revision's line of DEJ products, they are clinically tested anti-aging products designed around your skin's Dermal-Epidermal Junction (DEJ). The area of the skin, where the dermis and epidermis connect, the DEJ is a complex network of structural proteins that encourage adhesion between layers, provide a foundation for the dermis, and home to blood vessels that allow the transfer of nutrients between layers. Because this layer, sometimes known as the "basement" of the skin thins with age, visible skin is less well-supported, leading to droopy or sagging skin.

Since the area around our eyes is already one of the thinnest parts of the skin, they are one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging like droopy eyelids, crepiness, and of course, crow's feet.
Revision DEJ Eye Cream is a lush moisturizing eye cream intended to treat multiple concerns around the eye, with a focus on strengthening the DEJ to correct and prevent drooping, wrinkles, and fine lines. Its gentle formula is safe to apply to your eyelids, and contains probiotics to help balance your microbiome. The formula also includes an antioxidant blend to protect skin from free radical damage, and cucumber water for a soothing, cooling boost. The tube comes with a cooling metal applicator pump that makes it easy to dispense the right amount of product and soothe skin during application.
So, which of these eye creams should I choose?
Ultimately the decision between these two comes down to what you want out of your eye cream. They are both good options as comprehensive eye treatments, and will help firm skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but they have different strengths beyond that.
If you want to address dark circles or puffiness under your eyes, the Alastin Restorative Eye Treatment is the better choice.
If you are concerned with drooping or saggy skin around your eyes, especially on your eyelids, Revision's DEJ Eye Cream is right for you, whether you are looking for a preventative or corrective treatment.
Again, these are both consistently popular and well-reviewed eye creams, so there really isn't a bad choice, but hopefully taking a deeper look at them will help you figure out which is right for you.
