Product Description:

Fight Oxidation Fight Ageing

An ultra-smoothing cream-gel for a targeted action against fine lines around the eye contour area. Better protect your eye contours against premature ageing. Visibly smoother, the eyes glow with luminosity.

Actual Product Pic:

This is a SAMPLE.

The actual thing:

Texture & Scent:

Although this is an eye cream, the texture is really light, and it sinks in almost immediately with no sticky / heavy feeling behind! There's a really mild perfumey scent to this one, but it's almost undetectable once on!


The tube i have is a sample. The real thing comes in a jar with a screw top lid, which i don't really like because it's not very hygienic!

The box it came in:

Time Test:
This eye cream keeps my eyes feeling hydrated for the entire day! It took about a month though before i could see visible results!

Price & Availability:
This eye cream is priced at RM180 (approx. US$48.65), which is a little expensive for that miniscule amount you get. This should be available at most Lancome counters. It's also available for sale on for US$51, and at for US$46.10.

I use this around my eye area twice daily!

My $0.02:

I ran out of my Biotherm Aquasource Yeux awhile ago and was HORRIFIED to find out that there're no Biotherm counters in Bangalore! Thankfully i have a couple of samples of this eye cream, so i thought i'd give them a try and see if i like them!

The first thing that surprised me about this is the light texture! It's doesn't feel heavy at all despite it being cream! It also sinks in really quickly and didn't mess with my makeup, so it's great!

The moisturizing factor is pretty good - it's a little more moisturizing than the Biotherm one for me. And it does work to minimize the fine lines under my eyes!!

A side by side comparison:

The one on the left is before, and the one on the right is two months later

As you can see, the fine lines around the lower eye area (especially the middle part) diminished quite abit, so i'm happy! :)

All in all i think this is a pretty good eye cream, i just wish it wasn't that expensive though! I'd repurchase, but i need to check out the ingredients first Hehehe... as you can see above I've already repurchased a full tub!! Wheeeee! :)

  1. What a great "after" pic. So glad it worked for you :)

  2. Fab, fab review, I'm on the lookout for a good new eye cream. So far Lancome Hydra Zen Yeux has been the best, but I'm still looking around.

  3. Thanks for this! I have wanted to try this cream for the longest time but kept balking at the price and the mixed reviews on MUA.

  4. Shopn'Chomp: Thank you!! :D I'm glad it worked for me tooooo!! :D

  5. su-pah: Thanks!! :D You can try this one out, or the StriVectin-SD one! I've heard so many raves about that one! :D

  6. Eli: icic!! Hmmm... maybe you can purchase a sample somewhere or ask for it at the counter (hopefully the beauty counters in AU give out samples easily?)? Yeah the price is horrendous but luckily it did work for me la! hahaha!! :P

  7. I have samples of these but haven't started using it yet! I have heard from fellow beauty enthusiast down here that the product works for her! and now you!!! I am excited to use this but would probably give reviews months months after lol!

  8. Hehehe... no worries Nikki!! I will be waiting for your review!! :D :D

  9. wow at the results! But the price. Argh. :D
