Lancome Renergie Yeau Multiple Lift (Ultimate Rejuvenating Eye Duo) is a clever little product. I’ll start with telling you how much I LOVE the packaging! I don’t know why it appeals to me so much but it really does. As you can probably see from my picture the top of the lid pops open revealing a mirror and a pan of concealer like product, but then the whole of the silver bit unscrews like a you would expect a normal screw top lid to come off revealing a pot of moisturising cream.
The product contains two formulas, as explained above for 6 benefits.
Dark circles appear reduced
Bags appear reduced
Eye contour looks more luminous
Eye contour looks smoother
Eye contour feels firmer
Fine lines around the eye appear smoother
So the it promises a lot in some ways but I notice that mostly it promises to make things “appear” more so and so, rather actually have an effect, other than to feel firmer. Thats not a criticism, if products are honest about what they achieve thats fine! I’d rather be told up front something will look much better but not promise to permanently remove all signs of aging!
So the first thing to talk about is the concealer-like pan on the top. It’s not concealer, its Illuminating Protecting Care rich in highlighting pigments and with skincare benefits to fade dark circles, deflate under eye bags and illuminate. I did try to swatch it but it just melts away into nothingness and is impossible for me to capture. On the eyes though it brightens beautifully and hides redness but yet somehow remains undetectable, its magical stuff reall and I love it. You can of course follow with your usual concealers/foundations. And you can of course use it at night.
Then there’s the cream section. The cream (sort of) acts as a base onto which you put the highlighting product, it absorbs quickly, feels light and moisturising, non-greasy. Included with the product are directions, which you really do need to read and use because each product is applied in quite particular areas, to target specific issues.
Unfortunately I didn’t carry on with this product for long enough to really give you a great idea of it’s effectiveness. Nothing to do with this product at all but my skin has been freaking out lately so I’m in the process of going back to basics with my skin care which means no more chopping and changing with samples. I just need to stick to some natural gentle products for a while.
What I can tell you is that these products seem pretty good with “highlighter” bit being really quite fab and immediate effects are certainly good for the use of both products!
This product is a pretty pricey £44.50 which if you were feeling flush, would probably be worth spending!
