I know what you’re thinking. Isn’t an eye cream for the face just… a face cream?
Well, yes and no.
L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Filler + Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream For Face has launched into the UK with some very compelling claims. Namely that it sells once every 10 seconds worldwide and is the French behemoth’s No1 skincare product globally. This means it’s more popular than the brand’s retinol, hyaluronic acid and skincare acids. You don’t need L’Oreal’s new Digital Dermatologist to tell you there’s more than meets the eye to this (admittedly, bonkers-sounding) product.
You’re probably still wondering what on earth an eye cream for face is though, aren’t you? Let me explain.
Like most post-millenium skincare trends, this comes from Asia where using eye cream over the whole face is officially A Thing.
Why? Because eyes are delicate little flowers. They have thin surrounding skin and tend to take the earliest hit from environmental ageing. This means the best eye creams are packed to the rafters with effective skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid and antioxidants but are also supremely gentle.
So it follows that savvy Eastern skincare fans thought, why limit that winning combination to just the eye?
The flaw in that plan is that most eye creams are so tiny and pricy that spreading them all over is the beauty equivalent of using caviar to polish your shoes. But not so with Eye Cream For Face from L’Oreal Paris.
This sturdy, reasonably priced 30ml pump is packed with plumping, protecting ingredients and zero fragrance, mineral oil or alcohol. Every ingredient is ophthalmologically tested, including two weights of hyaluronic acid to plump the skin at various levels.
It also packs in Proxylane, a top water-binding ingredient, non-irritating antioxidant Vitamin E and kombucha extract to gently refine skin texture.
The lightweight texture has been designed for the thinner eye area, so it won’t overload your skin or make it feel greasy. That plumping formula works wonders on crow’s feet and it’s also excellent at softening smile lines and skin on the neck and chest.
Hopefully it’s all starting to make a bit more sense now. Essentially, look beyond the wacky first impression and this is an excellent one-stop-shop hydrator.
And there’s no denying that name caught your attention, didn’t it?
