I once read somewhere that preventive maintenance in the under eye area should begin in your 20s. Earlier this year I got a few samples (two of the Lancome one above and the YSL which I’m not too sure is actually an eye cream, lol) so started using them a few times a week and then gradually increased use of the Lancome Genefique Yeux to every day. The difference that made was noticeable so applying eye cream is a skin care step that I want to continue.
Unfortunately, I’ve nearly run out of samples and when I checked the price of the full sized Genefique Yeux, it was close to 4000Php. Yikes. I know eye creams are usually pricey, but the packaging of the full sized product was another thing I didn’t like when I saw it. While the sample comes in a squeezy tube, the full sized product comes in a pot that you have to dip your finger into. Lots of eye creams come that way, but I find it to be really unhygienic.
So if you guys can recommend any good eye creams (that come in squeezy tubes and aren’t too expensive), please do! I have to mention that I’m sort of afraid of Khiel’s products because of a bad reaction I had to one of their moisturizers, so that brand is out of the running.
The Shu Uemura Tsuya youth infusing eye concentrate (2, 500Php) is the only eye cream I’m considering at the moment. It’s a relatively new release, so I don’t know if anyone will have tried it yet. Looks really interesting though because it can be used as a sort of makeup primer as well.
So there, please share your favourite eye creams if you have any! I’m down to my last drops of my beloved Lancome Genefique Yeux (I think I may actually buy the full size despite the drawbacks if I can’t find an alternative, hehe).
