I’m a big fan of L’Oreal Revitalift Eye Cream Anti-Wrinkle + Firming, and I’ve been using it for years.
The L’Oreal website describes the product as follows:
- Diminishes puffiness & dark circles
- Redensifies & illuminates eye area
- Skin’s moisture level surges
With age, skin in the delicate eye area becomes dry, thin and less resilient, resulting in the appearance of crow’s feet, puffiness and dark circles. Enriched with calcium and precious oils, this butter-soft golden balm redensifies and illuminates the eye area. With micro-fine nutrients, skin’s support structure is strengthened with renewed firmness and radiance.
Instantly: Skin’s moisture level surges, penetrating deep below skin’s surface.
1 month: Skin’s elasticity in the eye area is restored, diminishing puffiness and dark circles.
- Dermatologist tested for gentleness
- Ophthalmologist tested
First opening the jar of L’Oreal, I saw a pretty, golden cream. So far, so good. But it’s a very, very, very thick, heavy cream. I like thick, but this is too thick for me. With this cream, you must pat it on, otherwise it pulls the skin as you try to get it to absorb. Also, with time, the cream seems to thicken even more in the jar, making it even more difficult to apply.
I thought maybe the thick cream would act like spackle to firm up the loose skin above my eye lid, but no such luck. I believe in finishing things up, and it’s taking me forever to use this cream up. The “elasticity” benefit I was hoping for did not happen. I will not repurchase.
L’Oreal comes in a 0.5 oz./14 g jar. I bought mine at CVS, and it’s widely available at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and many websites in case any of you want to give it a try and prove me wrong. The MSRP is $19.99, though I’m sure I paid less than that. The product is made in the U.S.
Note: After panning this product, I feel funny mentioning this, but I saw it on sale at Walgreens for $5.99. So, if you are looking for a heavyweight eye cream, head to Walgreens to the “impulse” products at Beauty Counter cash register.
