I am a pharmacist interested in writing about cosmetics and herbal products with the aim to provide awareness about these unregulated agents


Doterra Anti-Aging Eye Cream

Active Ingredients

doTerra has meadowfoam seed oil, shea butter, aloe vera leaf juice, frankincense oil, ylang ylang flower oil, blue tansy flower oil, red algae extract.

doTerra basically uses essential oils in all of its products. Ylang ylang, blue tansy, and frankincense target signs of aging around the eye area. These ingredients are found alone in other eye creams and moisturizers.

  • Bakuchiol is a relatively new plant-based retinol.
  • Meadowfoam seed oil: It has anti-oxidant properties directly helpful to prevent aging of skin. It contains tocopherol and vitamin-E.
  • Shea butter is rich in stearic, vitamin-E and oleic acid. It not only used as an anti-aging properties but also used for dry skin and scalp in various other cosmetic formulations.
  • Aloe vera leaf juice tightens the skin, gives elasticity and slows aging.
  • Frankincense oil helps tone and lifts the skin.
  • Ylang ylang flower oil probably used for its beautiful scent.
  • Blue tansy flower oil has a fruity balsamic smell. It reduces the appearance of blemishes and skin irritation.
  • Red algae extract contains lots of antioxidants and nutrients helpful for skin rejuvenation.
  • Dimethicone is used as a moisturizer to prevent dry, rough or itchy skin.

Other ingredients

Caprylic/capric triglycerides, cetyl palmitate, cetyl alcohol, behenyl alcohol, pentylene alcohol, glyceryl stearate, sodium lauryl glutamate and others are emulsifiers, thickening or opacifying agents.


Around $45 on Amazon and $65 on the website. When purchased with the whole essential care kit it obviously gets discounted to a very reasonable price.


15ml or 0.5 fl. oz.


It comes with a roller on which cream settles as you press the pump. Apply the roller smoothly in the eye contour.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal Cream

Elemis contains methysilanol mannuronate, padina pavonica thallus extract, avocado leaf extract, cholera vulgaris extract, and blue green algae exctract.

Active ingredients

  • Methysilanol mannuronate is an organic derivative of sea weed. It firms and strengthens the skin.
  • Padina pavonica thallus extract is an extract from the brown algae. It gives the skin a moisturising effect. The skin attracts the water molecules and ensures optimal hydration.
  • Avocado leaf extract have strong antioxidant activity.
  • Cholera vulgaris extract has powerful antiaging effects. It is rich in carotenoids that protects the skin from UV rays.
  • Blue-green algae extract helps lifting and toning of skin.

Other ingredients

Caprylic/ capric triglycerides, dicaprylyl carbonate, sodium polyacrylate, hesyldecyl laurate, and others are additive ingredients used to give the cream its appearance, stability and consistency.


$74 on amazon and $68 on the website. Obviously, better to purchase it from the website.


15ml or 0.5 fl. oz.


It needs to be applied every morning and evening. Apply a single pump on the ring finger and press the eye contours.

Pros of both the eye creams

  • Both are clinically tested independently (meaning, in their controlled clinical trial laboratory) .
  • Neither of them contains bad ingredients like parabens, petroleum, pthalates, gluten, or synthetic fragrances.
  • Neither of them is tested on animals.
  • Both have been proved to have shown improvement within two weeks. The doTerra seems to show result from the day one itself but significant benefits are seen in 10 to 14 days.

Overall Review

After researching for a while, I found that both the creams seem to comply with the safety standards for use of ingredients in cosmetics. Both the creams are a little expensive when compared to the average rates of all eye creams available but are worth the price considering the quality.

Both offers same quantity for the same amount. After thoroughly reading the reviews from other customers and from my own experience I believe both the creams are superior compared to many others I know of in the market. Though I ideally would choose doTerra products but Elemis seems to do a little better in terms of its ingredients when compared to those of doTerra eye cream.

Very rarely customers have complained of redness and bumpy appearance in the under eye area with the use of these eye creams. Although the ingredients seem to be safe, it is advised to be careful if you feel any signs of damage to your skin and contact a dermatologist immediately.
