Review: Genifique Yeux Light-Pearl
They say that 50 per cent of the benefit of an eye cream is in the application.
Anyone can whip a pricey eye cream over their face, but the real results come in the gentle massaging of the skin that absorbs the product, improves circulation and drains away puffiness.
Lancome's latest invention takes the work out of eye care with a product that does the massaging for you. Genifique Yeux Light-Pearl is an illuminating youth-activator serum, and while the product is packed full of impressive ingredients and promises, the real magic comes in the actual bottle design.
What I thought was an oversized eye-dropper is actually a special rotating metal applicator.
It sounds fandangled, but, boy, it's nice to apply. The metal applicator is cooling and soothes the eye area instantly. Because of the rotating tip you're able to massage right into the hard-to-get angles, and working in a little circular motion I gave my whole delicate eye area a good coating of the stuff.
The research studies on this product state that 78 per cent of women saw a reduction in their dark bags after four weeks of use, and while I haven't got to the four-week stage yet, the regular massage is definitely making a difference.
Whether you splash out on this special product with its fancy wand or simply start regularly massaging your usual eye cream with your fingertips, you'll definitely notice a difference in your under-eye appearance.
