When we ask our readers about the skincare issues they are most concerned with in our annual survey, dark eye circles and lines around the eyes always come up among the top responses.
And we’re not surprised. After all, the skin around of eyes are significantly different from the rest of our skin.
Not only is it thinner, the frequency of movements we subject our eyes to – from blinking, to rubbing and tugging when we put on our contact lenses and do our eye makeup – makes the eye area more susceptible to signs of ageing.
Perhaps this is why people say that the eyes are the window to our soul – they only tell the truth, yes, including the truth about our age and lifestyle.
This is why we’re always looking for an eye care product that really works
This could be why we’re constantly looking for a good eye cream product. One that is preferably an all-rounder that helps reduce the appearance of dark eye circles, and at the same time visibly eliminates the look of signs of ageing like fine lines and crow’s feet.
Here are tips for you if you’re still on the lookout for the ideal eye cream for yourself:
- It should be backed by science: Eye creams are among one of the toughest formulas to get right by scientists because of intricacies required to make it a solution for so many complex skin concerns. You shouldn’t expect anything less than a huge research backing up the product
- Look for a lightweight formula: Remember that you need something gentle for your delicate eye area, so the product should feel lightweight and be absorbed quickly into skin
- You should enjoy using it: Most importantly, you have to feel good using the product – because that’s the best way to encourage you to keep up with usage. Skincare products like eye cream require your conscientiousness in order to see results
Try the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Eye Cream
You might have already heard of the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Serum, the most iconic and bestselling product by the luxury French brand that’s known for their research in anti-ageing solutions and expert use of probiotics in their skincare products.
Now, the brand has launched the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Eye Cream in a new and stronger formula that is designed to be a wake-up call for your eyes and to reduce the appearance of dark eye circles.
And we are loving this new product because it checks all the boxes we’ve mentioned above.
1. It is backed by solid research
We know that the Génifique franchise is a powerhouse of scientific research. The famous Génifique serum was created after 14 years of research, and has a unique formula that has been patented until 2029 – a nod to the scientists’ work in creating a breakthrough in the industry.
The extraordinary study put into the Génifique serum, including some of the most effective active ingredients, are also found in the Advanced Génifique Eye Cream.
The magic in the formula? A trio of probiotic extracts. You might be thinking – that’s what doctors recommend to us when we are having gut problems, right? You’re absolutely right! But guess what – probiotics aren’t just great for our gut, they also do wonders to our skin.
For our delicate eye area, probiotics are able to reinforce skin barrier, improve skin structure, and improve the appearance of transparency.
The promised results? Eye area that looks brighter, de-puffed, with younger-looking contours. Definutely sounds like everything we’ve always wanted to achieve with our eye creams!
These achievements aren’t just theoretical. A consumer test conducted over four weeks on 53 women shows that 100% of them saw their dark circles reduced, and that they looked like they had a good night’s rest.
2. It has a lightweight formula
If you associate skincare powerhouses with rich formula, that’s where you’ll be surprised by the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Eye Cream.
Besides an upgraded formula to enhance effectiveness, the new Lancôme Advanced Génifique Eye Cream also has an improved texture that absorbs even more easily.
You’ll find that the formula breaks from cream into gel, and offers a velvety finish that improves eye makeup wear – something that not many eye creams can profess and that’s why we love it!
3. You’ll enjoy using it
As with all Lancôme products, the experience of the users is always given a luxurious “French touch”.
The beautiful texture, quick absorption, velvety finish will make this product part of a pampering ritual in your day. Don’t forget to spend a bit of time massaging the eye area to further encourage micro-circulation – and trust us, you’ll start enjoying your skincare routine more, and even better, you’ll see results from it too!
But don’t just take our word for it. Try it for yourself at the complimentary 15-minute Eye Glow Service.
