First impressions: Lancome Visionnaire Yeux, Advanced Eye Contour Perfecting Corrector

How terrible are your eye bags and wrinkles? I think they're never as ugly as we think they are. I have met celebrities before and believe me - their dark circles and lines are as real and obvious as any of ours. They just wear a lot more makeup than average and have the luxury of having their lesser features edited out in print. This gives us an unreasonable expectation on how much better we should look like, when in reality we already look perfectly fine.

Still, that's not an excuse to be complacent when caring for our skin. :) Eye cream, for instance, is something anyone from their early 20s up can appreciate! The earlier you begin, the more regular your routine is, the less damage your eye area will take in the decades to come.

So! Today I'll be sharing my first impressions + info on the Lancome Visionnaire Yeux, Advanced Eye Contour Perfecting Corrector (P3,295). 

Visionnaire Yeux is the first eye contour care to incorporate LR 2412, for high  performance combined with uncompromising tolerance, suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.  

Dark circle correction: immediate and long-term effectiveness 

The formula, composed of Haloxyl and caffeine, offers spectacular results. It has been clinically proven: week after week, dark circles fade away. A 26% improvement in their colour and 8% reduction in their size are observed after four weeks.

I have only used this a few times, so this isn't a full review yet, just my first thoughts on Visionnaire Yeux. It's a lightweight eye cream that instatly makes my bags feel more elastic and refreshed. The applicator is like a translucent tongue - innovative! - with raised dots to better massage the eye area.

The white cream has barely any scent. It's quickly absorbed, as well.

I had a little booboo with the packaging. The top has a twist-lock mechanism, and so of course I forgot that you're supposed to do lock it. I think someone (or it could be me) accidentally squeezed the tube full-on. Now I have a load of gunk in the cap! Daaaaanng it. Note to self: lock it after every single use.

I'll be trying this out more in the next few days. I'll definitely update you if I see any improvement on my dark circles / puffy eyes! I really hope this works as the puffiness in particular is worse than ever.

Have you tried any product from the Lancome Visionnaire line?
