I’m a very late convert to the cause of eye cream. I won a tiny bit of the genetic lottery from my maternal side: no major crows feet yet, and I am a bit lazy on the prevention is better than cure front. But recently I’ve noticed tell tale fine lines starting to creep, and I’ve been waking in the morning with the skin around my eyes feeling dry and taut. So I reached for Lancome’s Hydra Zen Yeux Neurocalm eye cream.
I’m not going to pretend that I woke up one day, looked in the mirror and shouted ZOHMYGOD my wrinkles have gone, but what I have noticed is an all round softening, a blurring if you will of the skin around my eyes, and no more taut, dry skin — which means hopefully no more incipient deep crows feet around my eyes. I have pretty sensitive skin, what with the rosacea an’all, and it doesn’t take much to set my eyes weeping, but I’ve had no adverse reaction to this at all, which isn’t always the case with eye creams.
I also like the almost gel-like texture: it’s not too heavy, which I always think pulls the very delicate eye area down too much. It’s also in a little pump action bottle„ so it feels hygienic: not a big fan of jars you have to stick your fingers in on a daily basis. So, all in all, it’s a definite yes for me for this eye cream.
