Nuxe Merveillance Expert Lift Eye Cream (R424)
What they say: Merveillance Expert Lift Eye Cream with Daylily Oléoactif®TM and caffeine plant extracts fills in visible lines and loss of tone. It immediately diminishes the appearance of dark circles and bags to give eyes a rested look. Day after day, wrinkles are filled in and the eye area appears smoothed, as if lifted.
What I say: There is a lot of talk at the moment about whether or not you need to use an eye cream. Truth is you don’t NEED one, but using one won’t hurt. And as someone who has problematic eye areas, I’m not taking any chances. The skin around your eyes is thinner than the rest of your face; it needs to be because it allows for all the movement in the area, but sadly this also means it tends to wrinkle and puff up more easily than the rest of your face. I personally prefer to use products that have been developed for this delicate skin, but if you don’t that’s good, too.
Anyway, back to the review. This is a flipping incredible eye cream. It gives an almost instant tightening effect that lasts a few hours – as in; you can actually feel the area tighten! It makes me look awake even on days when a teething toddler has kept me up all night.
The formula is quite liquid for an eye cream, but this means it absorbs well and plays well with other skincare, and doesn’t do that horrible pilling thing. I can’t say how well it will work at fighting chronic dark circles, as I don’t have them. But I can tell you that it works wonders on fine lines and puffiness. I’ve using it for 4 weeks now, and have noticed an improvement in the texture of the skin, and I’ve been less puffy than usual.
