It has been a while since I last did a skincare product review as I had been posting more of food related entries recently. I think it’s apt to do a review for Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream now that the product has hit bottom and I had requested Jennifer to get me a new eye cream when she was in KL couple of days ago. If you are interested to know which eye cream I got this time round, do stay tune for my next blog post!
When it comes to purchasing eye cream, it is always hard for me to decide which one to buy but certainly not the case when deciding on moisturizers. I tend to stick with the same moisturizer but I like to switch eye creams from time to time. A YouTube beauty vlogger highly recommended innisfree Orchid Eye Cream. I recently got a sample of the product and I am going to use it when I travel next month.
Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream
When Sister found out that I had been using Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream, she thought that it was too potent for my current skin but I thought otherwise. This one I thought was considered mild as compared to the other anti-ageing eye products from Lancôme.
I purchased this eye cream end of September last year when I attended the wedding of a close friend in Miri. Mom asked why didn’t I buy from Singapore when it’s usually cheaper. Well, it is for most brands but with the inflation of RM, buying from Malaysia can be more affordable nowadays. After a bit of Maths calculation, I found out it was about S$10 or RM30 cheaper in Malaysia.
The product has a light and yet creamy consistency. Some eye products tend to give breakouts of milia seeds under the eye areas but this product doesn’t. The product is easy to apply on the skin and it gets absorbed real quick. I can feel that my under eye skin area is moisturized and hydrated throughout the day.
The appearance of fine lines seems to have reduced but not completely as there are still some noticeable ones. If you are looking for an eye product which works for dark circles too, this one may not be for you. I don’t have obvious dark circles but it is rather noticeable when you look closely. If you are looking for an eye cream to tackle the dark circles, perhaps the whitening range?
So, here’s what I think of Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream in a nutshell:
1. Light and yet creamy consistency, doesn’t cause milia seeds breakout.
2. Fine lines are noticeably reduced.
3. Under eye areas are moisturized and hydrated throughout the day.
4. Price line is considered affordable for an anti-ageing product as compared to some other brands that I know of.
1. Doesn’t help much with the dark circles.
