About two months ago, instead of requesting for an insurance quote, I found myself totally engrossed on what was then the latest product launch of Lancome : the Absolue Eye Precious Cells. Of course, if you are an avid visitor, you must already be aware of my penchant for eye creams as well as other beauty and skin care items.
I read up on all the reviews, in fact, I went to bed late so that I can decide whether to buy it or not. I contemplated half of the day but because I was dead set on having it, I requested my husband to go and get me one on his way home from the office. He not only came home with a jar of the eye cream, he also brought these samples and a cosmetic case.
Is this eye cream worth my time and the money ( for the 0.5 oz. jar the price is $98 plus NY tax of 8.375%)? I don’t think so ( at least for me) or maybe, I was just expecting too much, or mayb e this is not even really recommended for me. Lancome claims that this cream is an:
Exclusive innovation from Lancôme
A powerful combination of unique ingredients – Reconstruction Complex and Pro-Xylane™ – has been shown to improve the condition around the stem cells, and stimulate cell regeneration to reconstruct skin to a denser quality*(*In-vitro test).
Immediately, the eye contour appears smoother and more radiant. Day 7, signs of fatigue are minimized and the appearance of puffiness is reduced. Day 28, density is improved. Skin is soft and looks healthier. The youthful look of the eye contour is restored.
The jar is not yet totally empty. I guess, it will be all gone in two weeks. My under eye area is still the same, I haven’t seen any visible difference. Will I buy it again? No! I’m moving on to the next brand. In fact, I have one in mind already.
