Almost a year since I started using the L’Oreal Youth Code Boosting Essence comes another Youth Code product designed for a hectic lifestyle like mine. The original L’Oreal Youth Code Boosting Essence was derived from 10 years of gene research, allowing women (and men if they choose) to unlock the code to keep us looking younger. They’ve now brought that same amazing technology to keeping our peepers pretty. Call me.. Benjamin, Benjamin Button.
Here I thought the Youth Code Boosting Essence I used previously was lightweight – clear, viscous and quickly absorbed into the skin. The new L’Oreal Youth Code Rejuvenating Eye Essence takes it up a notch. And it’s exactly what I love. Particularly for the eye area, the thinnest and most sensitive area of the face, I prefer serums that aren’t too thick. I delighted at the texture of this eye essence. The next lightweight thing I can think of aside from the L’Oreal Youth Code Rejuvenating Eye Essence I’ve used, would probably be water. Haha.
The reason why the L’Oreal Youth Code Eye Essence is so effective in targeting the 4 main problems of “eye-age” – fine lines, dark circles, eye bags, droopy skin – lies in 2 patented technologies. DRAINBOOST™ contains Haloxyl and Caffeine which stimulates micro-circulation in the eye area helping reduce the appearance of dark under-eye circles and eye bags. PRO-GEN™, on the other hand, acts at the epidermal level by activating the ‘youth recovery gene’, thus boosting skin’s recovery powers and strengthening its barrier function. I havent been sleeping well recently and dark rings have been my main eye issue. This L’Oreal Youth Code Eye Essence has been a life-saver – lightening my dark rings after consistent daily use over a week.
Lighter dark eye circles! No photoshop!
I also used to be guilty of rubbing my eyes whenever they’re tired. Especially before bedtime, after staring at the computer for extended periods of time, it naturally felt so good to rub my eyes. Little did I know, I was pulling and tugging at the fragile skin below my eyes. Fine lines developed gradually over time and I got worried. The thinnest area on the face is truly the one that needs the most protection. This is a lightweight product helps me to hydrate and keep my eyes fresh without the threat of oil seeds around the eyes.
I get questions regarding what eye cream to use and now after a week of using the L’Oreal Youth Code Rejuvenating Eye Essence, this is my favourite go-to eye serum. One drop, two fingers and several gentle strokes later, your eye area is left with a silky finish and sufficiently prepped. Just 15 seconds from first application, you can now apply makeup or proceed with your nightly skin care routine. Be sure to use your fourth finger to pat around the eye area. This prevents any further mechanical stress.
For the launch months (November/December) of this stellar product, you pay only $29.90 for 15ml instead of the usual $34.90. The best time to buy yourself and your dearest girlfriends a Christmas present. And if you need tips on how eye massages, the L’Oreal Facebook page has information on how to keep your eyes looking fresh! Now we’ll be looking forward to welcoming the new year looking younger and more youthful! Cheers!
