I’ve always been cursed with dark under eye circles, which I think are at least 80 per cent genetic. I had them even as a toddler - which is well before I started burning the candle at both ends – and as a teenager suffered the fools gladly who asked if someone had bopped me one carefully in each eye. Add genuine tiredness to the mix and I’m reaching for quite literally anything to help cancel them out. They can be covered up with the right concealer, but I’m always on the hunt for a great eye cream that will treat my dark circles as well as the early signs of ageing such as fine lines, crêpiness and the like.
This has always been quite elusive, perhaps until now. The product that has been winning me over of late and just may be the answer to my prayers is Lancôme’s Visionnaire Yeux - Eye On Correction Advanced Multi-Correcting Eye Balm (a bit of a mouthful I know, but bear with me).
Given that Lancôme's original Visionnaire facial product was such a hit, I knew it wouldn't be long before they launched a serious new eye-area counterpart, and here it is.
The first 3-in-1 eye cream with the power of Jasmonates (a small group of related molecules derived from linolenic acid), it targets all manner of eye contour-related issue like wrinkles, dark circles and bags with aplomb. In less than a minute, the area around your eyes are actually optically whitened and given a delicately “rested” appearance no matter how many hours you’ve had your head on the pillow. And, over time it has truly amazing corrective properties to boot. The product contains key technologies like Lancôme’s legendary hydra blur technology (think silky powders and soft focus agents), the aforementioned Jasmonate and caffeine, which work together as quite the clever cocktail. This means it works by diminishing the appearance of dark circles, smoothing out eye wrinkles and refining the look and texture of the eye contour over time – magic!
Also a super cooling eye balm that feels amazing when you smooth it on in the morning, its lightweight texture blends seamlessly into the skin, targeting fine lines, evening skin tone and reducing the appearance of bags and dark circles. Makeup application over the top is a breeze, especially given that hardly any is needed after this little magic balm smoothes everything out.
So, there you have it. Amazing. And don’t just take my word for it – this baby lands on counter on Monday (RRP $118.00) so get there to a Lancôme expert and try it out for yourself.Tweet
