Lancome & Elemis eye serums - youthful looking eyes are just a pump away!

This is not the post I was intending to write today but something miraculous happened last night - I actually used a bottle of something up!  I know what most of you are thinking - "What the hell is she talking about, of course you used it up, you use something everyday and eventually it's all gone, duh!  Why am I reading a blog written by such a stupid person!?!"  I understand your hostility, for normal people this is exactly what happens, for me, never!  I use something halfway and then I get distracted by something newer, better and shinier...it's really tough being me!  But I digress, you want to read about eye serums so here you go:

Lancôme High Résolution Eye with Collaser-5X - Intense Collagen Anti-Wrinkle Eye Serum - 15ml $74 As you know, I love a face serum so it seemed logical to me when I discovered that eye serums existed, that I would love them too, and I do!  This was a perfect eye treatment for the spring and summer, I should probably have switched to something a little heavier for the winter, but I was obviously enjoying this one so much I forgot. What is so great about it you ask?  Well, the texture is excellent, it's light and soaks right in. The technical side of it: it has a special blend of peptides, extracts and vitamins in it that target 5 key types of collagen that make up 80% of the collagen in your skin.  And as we know, collagen is what gives our skin the plumpness, firmness and youthfulness we all crave.  If your eye area is lacking any of these things I highly recommend you give this serum a try!  I also really liked the packaging.  The pump bottle is so much better then messing around with a pot, I expect people who normally use up their products and even (gasp!) wait until they use something up until they buy something new would not like the opaque bottle as it makes it impossible to judge how much is left.

Elemis Absolute Eye Serum Anti-Ageing - 15ml $64 (US) - As long as we're discussing eye serums, I thought I'd throw this one in too.  I discovered Elemis at the spa on the cruise ship I was on a few years ago.  Of course I have a weakness for skin care so when they did the product sales pitch at the end of my facial I couldn't resist picking a few things up.  I really liked this serum.  It was extremely light, almost liquid, absorbed super quick and was very moisturizing.  The only thing I didn't like was the applicator - it's a dropper, which I found a little messy. The dropper also doesn't reach all the way to the bottom of the bottle so when you are on the last inch or so you have to tip the bottle upside down on your finger to get the serum out.  And yes, I really did get that far with this eye serum too - it's not entirely used up, but pretty close!  North Americans can buy Elemis here and other regions can check it out here.

Time to go shopping in my cupboard to see what I will be using next on my eyes!
