Review on Lancome's Genifique Yeux Eye Cream
This is my review on Lancome's Genifique Yeux Eye Cream, also known as the "Youth Activating Eye Cream". An elegant cream with gel-like texture enriched with Genifique patented technology, this amazing eye cream helps protect the delicate eye area against the visible signs of ageing and fatigue.
The key ingredients are water, cyclohexasiloxane, bifida ferment lysate, glycerin, propenadiol and alcohol denat etc, a full list of powerful ingredients set to bring about younger, brighter eyes with softer contours within 7 days of use (do note that results differ with each individual though).
For 15g, the price is around SGD$98.00 per tub. The packaging is in stunning black, with the signature Lancome rose painted in silver on the top of the lid. There is visible smell to this product.
The eye cream itself is smooth and velvety to the touch, very easy to apply. The correct way of application is to massage the cream gently onto the upper and lower eye contour areas with 2 finger tips. For extra measure, you can also tap lightly to let it "sink in". Use this once in the morning and once at night.
This is a "before" photo of me. The Eyebags were more prominent here due to late nights and early morning. I have tried several types of eye cream, eye gel and eye serum before, but to no avail.
Here is an "after" photo, where the Eyebags have been reduced over prolonged usage of Lancome's Genifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream. The eye areas feel smoother, softer, and the flaws have reduced rather significantly. As you can see, makeup is minimal here.
Verdict is that this cream works like a wonder, just like its Youth Activating counterpart in the same series (review here). The price is a little steep at SGD$98.00 for a small tub, but it lasts around 1 to 3 months, so it is reasonable if you divide the sum out. I am in love and in awe with yet another of Lancome's wonderful products.
