Lancôme’s Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activator
WHAT:
An eye serum booster which makes your eye cream work better.

Combining the science of Génifique with a never-seen-before pearl-shaped massaging applicator, Lancôme’s Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activator aims to brighten the eye area.

Formulated with Caffeine, Escine and an extract of the micro-algae Chlorella Vulgaris, the pre-serum also works to correct puffiness, diminish under-eye circles and smooth fine lines when used on its own.  

It also comes with a Light-Pearl applicator which has a unique 50-degree rotation angle to suit the
eye contours while allowing suppleness on application. Made with stainless steel, the applicator is said to be more hygienic and is cool to the touch upon contact with the skin.

After seven days, eyes are said to look bigger, brighter, smoother and more youthful.

REVIEW:
If rich eye creams are too heavy for your taste, this new eye serum booster might just be right for you.

Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activator is to be used as the first step of your eye cream routine and can be coupled with whichever eye cream you’re already using to enhance your eye care regime.
I used Lancôme’s Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activator together with Lancôme Rénergie Yeux Multiple Lift Eye Duo twice a day, for an entire week.

What’s great about the serum, is its light texture which penetrates quickly. You wouldn’t want anything too heavy, giving that you’ll still be applying other facial serums, eye creams or moisturisers after.

The moment it’s applied, the serum is absorbed into the skin and instantly hydrates the undereye leaving my skin feeling supple and less dry, without leaving any greasy residue.

In the mornings, the serum instantly reduced puffiness around my eye area. After a week, my fine lines were smoothed out and I found that my eye area did indeed appeared brighter.

The cooling sensation of the Light-Pearl applicator felt great on the skin. However, I personally found that the applicator was a little hard to control and resorted to dabbing the serum on with my fingers.
