By now everyone should be familiar with the famous with the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum which was originally launched in 2009. The Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Light Pearl is an extension to the range. Described as an eye-brightening and lash serum. Yes you heard correctly it is a lash serum as well as an eye serum so 2 for the price of 1!
The Packaging: The Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Serum comes in a luxurious glass bottle with a unique teardrop applicator, with a flexible 360° patented stainless-steel cryo-pearl, the -3°C instant cooling metal applicator is designed to massage the eye area during application. Great for de-puffing tired eyes. I personally found the applicator really soothing and relaxing especially since it is cool even when I keep it on my table on hot days. There Is a specific way to move the wand to massage it depending on your eye concerns. I demonstrate it in my reel below.
The product: Scent wise it has a light and fresh citrus floral scent, the serum has a runny and lightweight texture which makes it easy to spread and easily absorbed. The finish is not sticky or have a filmy residue and it layers well with other products. The fact that the formula is a shimmery light reflecting white colour from the resin micro-beads really adds to the brightening effect on the eyes. The Light-Pearl Serum is formulated with 7 pre-and probiotic fractions specifically chosen probiotics which strengthens the eye contour barrier while smoothing and firming fine lines. Two of the main ingredients are caffeine to reduce puffiness and arginine known to fortify lashes.
The Verdict: Overall, this is a nice lightweight eye serum with some potent depuffing ingredients. It’s great for those that struggle with dull, swollen eye area in the morning. I like to use it twice a day and I find it is hydrating enough that I don’t need to top up with an eye cream. I also noticed my lashes have become a bit thicker and stronger and my fine lines have faded a bit after 7 days of using it. Also great for a nice eye massage.
