Lancome Genifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream product review @iamcherrylemon

Hiya everyone, another #SkincareFridays post, woohoo!

I thought I better write up this review before I totally use up this eye cream. I don’t normally go through products quick enough so I am unlikely to have any “empties” blog posts ever, but never say never eh 😛

This is my second pot of Lancome Genifique eye cream, I bought this as part of a xmas set that comes with Lancome Genifique serum.

The product
This is part of the Genifique skincare range, which promises to help regenerate or help to regenerate younger looking skin in shorter amount of time. I loved the serum, but result is less noticeable with continuous use.

The eye cream comes in an adorable glass jar, looks fab on vanity table. (I actually kept my last pot for storing tiny brushes, from gel liner pots and eyebrow kits etc).
Product contains very slight fragrance, just like the facial serum, it smells very pleasant and expensive (?). You obviously would not smell it after application!

Official description
Targeted for the delicate eye area, the gel-cream formula adds vibrancy to tired eyes and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Skin feels firmer, softer and smoother.

Concerns: Signs of Ageing, Dullness, Wrinkles, Fine Lines
Benefits: Radiance, Smoothness, Firmness

Lancome Genifique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream product review @iamcherrylemon

The application
This is light creamy gel-like consistency, it feels nice and cooling on the under-eye area. I apply this eye cream to my under-eye area using my ring fingers, in which I lightly pat this on every morning and night. It absorb within minutes into the area.
Put it in the fridge and use the product cool’ed if you want slight tightening effect.

Result
Under-eye area feels hydrated and slightly more plump, the moisture level seems good throughout the day. This sits very well under makeup, it is not too rich, so you don’t have to worry about your under-eye concealer (if you wear any) sliding off.

I guess the fine lines are appearing as less visible due to the fact the area is very well hydrated. I do not see an improvement for dark circles. Then again, it didn’t claim to help with that :p

Price: £39.00 for 15ml

Overall Summary: 3 out of 5. I am ready to move on and use another eye cream. But I know I will come back to this product should I need to inject moisture onto under-eye area.

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend 😉

Woohoo Friday is here (happy dance)! This means I have another instalment of #SkincareFridays for you 🙂
We have 2 products from Alpha H for today’s review, the daily essential moisturiser and the eye gel. This is actually from a discovery set I’ve bought awhile back. Alpha H is a well-known salon skincare range from Australia.

Alpha H Absolute Eye Complex

This is a very light weight gel-like eye product. It aims to hydrate your eye area, refresh and rejuvenate tired eyes.
It claims to have firming properties but I can’t see the difference on my eye areas yet. But I am impressed with the hydrating feel it gives me. It doesn’t feel heavy and it hasn’t given me any issue. Because of its texture and lightness, it absorbs well into my under eye areas.  It also wears well under makeup.

Alpha H Daily Essential Moisturiser with SPF50+

This is facial moisturiser with high sun factors, it is very important to at least incorporate some sun protection in your daily routine. I must admit I am not very good at it, but I will go out with at least SPF25 in my skincare or makeup all seasons of the year.

For years I hated sun lotion for the face, it is always too heavy and causes breakout on me. Apply a sun lotion and white heads will magically appear on the very next day. So I am so glad this moisturiser is not heavy, does not clog pores (non-comedogenic) and does not leave a white cast on me.

It gives good moisturise for my combination oily skin, it does not feel heavy and it wears well under makeup. 1 downside, it has a faint but noticeable “SPF” smell?? It does not bother too much, as it doesn’t linger.

The kit I have got is no longer available, here’s a similar one. Beauty Bay Link @ £29.90

 

It is a good idea to try out the discovery set before getting the bigger sizes. This serves the purpose at the time. I have used the liquid gold, balancing cleanser and micro cleanse (exfoliator) in the same range, I hope to review those at a later stage.

I have had issues with the Gentle Daily Exfoliant with papaya and pineapple extracts, my skin does not agree to it, so I have already sent it back. I won’t be reviewing the product in this blog. Hehehe so I won’t be buying the discovery set again. But I have already bought the liquid gold in larger size J

Okie everyone, have a great Friday today! And a joyful weekend.

Take care
