At 45, Kerry Washington is as radiant as ever—but she’s not afraid to switch up her skincare routine, at least for the right product. One of her favorites? An eye cream that she swears has “revolutionized” the way she takes care of her complexion. And lucky for you, we spotted the exact product on sale at for a whopping 54% off.
In an interview with NewBeauty last year, Washington sang the praises of Neutrogena Rapid Firming Peptide Multi Action Eye Cream, one of the latest additions to the brand’s lineup. “The eye cream is a total game changer!” the Scandal actress said. “It’s actually made my morning routine so much better because I need less concealer, to be totally honest with you.”
“The boost to your natural collagen is so strong and you really see the difference,” Washington continued. “It really does help with firmness and elasticity, and giving those youthful qualities to the skin.”
The eye cream is powered by a blend of peptides (similar to the Neutrogena cream Jennifer Garner loves), which are skincare ingredients known for their youthful results. Once they penetrate the skin, the proteins help brighten dark circles, soothe puffiness, and smooth fine lines—the total package.
It should be noted that the Little Fires Everywhere actress—who has eczema-prone skin—is a longtime Neutrogena ambassador, but reviewers love it just as much as she does, making Washington’s seal of approval just icing on the cake. (In fact, over 3,000 Amazon shoppers gave it a full five stars.)
“I love how this product makes the underneath of my eyes feel and tightens those fine lines,” one reviewer raves. “The price is a fair one and I will definitely purchase this again.”
“This has been an absolute godsend,” writes another, who used the product to improve a self-declared “lizard neck.” “It’s also greatly improved the delicate area under my eyes that had begun to be puffy and discolored from lack of consistent sleep habits. I will be buying this product again and again.”
With all of these words of encouragement, we’re definitely going to have to give the Rapid Firming eye cream a try—after all, if it’s good enough for Kerry Washington, it’s definitely good enough for us.

She also told NewBeauty she loves Neutrogena’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair Pro Plus+ .5% Power Serum, the brand’s Hydro Boost Moisturizing Water Gel Sunscreen, and the Rapid Firming Collagen Triple Lift Face Serum, which is also currently on Prime Day sale. All of these make for the best beauty gifts for that special someone.
