Next in my quest for the perfect eye cream, I tried out the Lancome GÉNIFIQUE EYE Youth Activating Eye Concentrate (that's a mouthful) sample that I got from some department store promo a few months back.
[Side note: this is probably one of the most generous samples I've had. It's been a month and it's still going strong!]
Description from the Lancome website:
"See younger brighter eyes in just 7 days. This unique gel-cream leaves the eye contour velvety to the touch. Dark circles and signs of fatigue appear to diminish. The eye contour appears brighter and radiance, as if infused with life."
What I noticed after 3 weeks:
- product goes on velvety smooth, and moisture sinks into skin very quickly
- creamy but not greasy. I use this only at night but this should work fine under makeup too
- all in all very moisturizing. Even with the autumn dryness my eyes do not feel dry or tight thanks to this
- doesn't do anything for my dark circles or puffiness. In fact I feel like my dark circles (which improved previously thanks to my last eye sample) has gotten a bit darker.
Although I find this eye cream very moisturizing, I do not think I'll be repurchasing this. The full size product is on the pricey side ($60 in the US), plus the product is packaged in an open top jar - not the most sanitary ways to store eye cream. With this just being a moisturizing eye cream and nothing much else, I don't think it is worth the price. And so my search for the perfect eye cream continues. Recommendations, anyone?
