Double duty eye creams from Lancôme, Avon and L'Oréal!

Two is always better than one! Double scoops, double cheeseburgers, Double Down - okay now I'm making myself hungry - but it it's good for food - double has got to be good for eye products too - here are a few that I think are clever:

Lancôme Rénergie Eye Multiple Action Ultimate Eye Care Duo - 15ml/4g - $90 - looking for a firmer eye contour, eyelids which look "lifted", minimized crow's feet, fine lines and wrinkles, diminished dark circles, a visibly more luminous eye contour and reduced under eye puffiness? 2 complimentary formulas, 6 visible actions and an overall younger looking eye contour all in one handy-dandy package.

The bottom section contains the cream - which uses Argan extract to firm and tighten skin and reduce the appearance of crows feet, while an ingredient complex rich in flavonoids, amino acids and peptides helps to brighten the area. There's also firming going on thanks to CF-Volumetry Complex (made up of active botanical ingredients and yeast) with some pine extract thrown in to stimulate micocirculation which reduces puffiness - all this is applied to the eye contour: under the eye, on the upper eyelid and from the outer corner of the eye up to the temple.

The top part contains a protective illuminating treatment - which is made up of a mix of pigments in a cream-oil formulation and naturally enhances and brightens all skin shades - this one is applied to three specific areas: the inner corner of the eye; dark circles and puffiness; and below the eyebrows and pine extract stimulates microcirculation to reduce puffiness.

Take that you droopy, wrinkly, saggy, dull puffy eyes!

Avon Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro - 10ml/10ml - $39 - one side is a gel for the upper eye and brow bone to instantly help eye area appear tighter and lifted - while the other side is a cream that instantly helps visibly reduce undereye shadows.

Designed to visibly lift skin and boost elastin and collagen to deliver real visible age defying results at home.

The only thing I don't like is the packaging - I'm worried that I will get chocolate in my peanut butter so I wish they had given them separate lids!

Available from your Avon rep 1-800-265-AVON or online at

L'Oréal Revitalift Eye Wrinkle Repair 24H Eye Contour Repair Duo - 2 x 6ml - $28.99 - on one end is a daytime lotion with SPF 15 for the AM; on the other is an intensive anti-wrinkle night cream for the PM.

This has my favourite packaging as it seems much more sanitary than sticking your fingers into little pots. I also like that the day cream has an SPF although I wish it were a 30.

Double the benefits in one container is always a great thing - and a terrific space saver! What double favourites have you got?
