Our eye area has the most delicate skin compared to the rest of our facial skin. This is why experts say this is the area where signs of ageing are most likely to appear first. It, of course, means that it’s very important that we treat the area with the right products so we can delay the process that gives away our age!
As the trusted skincare brand loved by celebrities such as Zoe Tay and Dili Reba, and as the top eye care brand in Singapore (according to the Nielsen 2017 Mass Skincare data), these eye care products are designed for different eye concerns and promise to help us reveal youthful looking eyes.
To find out if these products really live up to their claims, we rallied three readers who each experience one of the top three eye concerns: dark circles, eye bags and crow’s feet, and asked them to test out these L’Oréal Paris eye products for a week and see their results.
Infused with 98% Ferment Essence, the L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Eye-Essence helps you achieve younger, brighter looking eyes by boosting skin’s renewal and strengthening the skin’s natural barrier.
The innovative applicator comes with triple beads that facilitate a point-to-point massage around your under eye area. This helps smooth out fine lines and cool the eye area, creating a relaxing sensation that reduces puffiness as well.
It makes using the product easy and effortless: simply dip the applicator into the formula, then run it in small, circular motions in the under eye area each day. You can even indulge in a longer massage if you have the time. But if you’re short of it, just a few quick swipes and you’re good to go!
Fun fact: Chinese actress Dili Reba serves as ambassadress for the L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Eye-Essence, and for good reason! She often has to stay up overnight filming for dramas and movies, and it’s the Youth Code Essence that helps her combat dark circles resulting from her hectic schedule.
“I’ve been plagued with dark eye circles for several years now, and I feel that my condition is worsening with age, with the shadows under my eyes getting progressively ‘darker.’ It doesn’t help that I’ve recently been staying up late nights to watch the World Cup as well.”
“After seven days of faithful application, however, I can definitely see some improvements! My dark eye circles are a lot less obvious, and the skin around my eyes just looks a lot brighter in general. I also like how the applicator allows for a cooling massage around the eye area, which makes the skin under my eyes feel a lot tighter and firmer.”
With a silky-light texture that absorbs easily into skin, the key ingredient of the Age Perfect Supreme Regenerating Eye Care is Glycerin. Known to be a nourishing anti-ageing ingredient, it draws water from the air into the skin’s outer layer, hence restoring moisture and allowing users to reduce the appearance of those pesky eye bags.
Singaporean actress Zoe Tay is an ambassadress and big fan of the Age Perfect Supreme Regenerating Eye Care. She says, “I love the lightweight texture and fragrance of L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Eye Care. It helps to alleviate the swelling of my eye bags. The clever and innovative design of the metal-tip applicator helps to massage and lighten my dark eye circles as well as diminish fine lines.”
“I’ve always had puffy eye bags, growing up. They make my eyes look swollen and distended, giving me a tired appearance even if I’ve had a full eight hours of sleep the night before. ”
“I find that my eye bags look a lot less prominent ever since I’ve started using the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Supreme Regenerating Eye Care, though! I also like how lightweight the formula feels on my skin. Makeup also goes on a lot more smoothly after I started applying it.”
Moisturised, refined, and smooth — that’s how the skin of your under eye area will appear after using the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser Laser X3 Anti-Aging Transforming Eye Cream.
The cooling applicator helps reduce puffiness, while Adenosine and caffeine in the formula helps smooth out wrinkles and diminish the appearance of crow’s feet. A tip for application? Treat yourself to a slow, thorough massage all around your eye contours so you’ll feel refreshed and ready to take on your day.
“I feel that my crow’s feet are getting increasingly prominent with age, however, I don’t have the luxury of engaging in a long, time-consuming skincare routine to get rid of them, so I was quite excited to hear about how simple the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 Anti-Aging Transforming Eye Cream was to use.”
“After a week of use, I see some major results: my crow’s feet appear much less prominent than before, and the skin of my under eye area is brighter, smoother, and more radiant.”
