"A woman's eyes can be her most powerful weapon of seduction" - Lancôme

Lancôme Génifique Youth Activator has been a huge success since its launch in 2009. Launching this September, using the same Genomics and Proteomics science and a light-pearl applicator is the latest, Lancôme Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminating Youth Activator. It is a 'breakthrough care to illuminate eyes with a 360° treatment'. Instead of targetting each eye care concern separately, it aims to treat it as whole because each concern contributes to the darkening of the eye area.

The light-infused serum, paired with its innovative Light Pearl applicator is meant to deliver amazing results. You are able to notice instantly refreshed and re-energised eyes, minimised eye bags and fine lines as well as smoother more luminous skin. As a result, eyes will look bigger, brighter and younger. The main components of this serum are caffeine, escine and an extract of micro-algae chlorella vulgaris which work together to correct puffiness, dark circles and areas of shadow.

What sets Lancôme Génifique Yeux apart from other eye care product is the mobile applicator - The Light-Pearl. I was so intrigued by the applicator when I first saw it. My first thought of it - "Oh look it has a shiny tear drop shaped metal thingy at the end that wiggles!". Seriously I couldn't wait to try it.

The light pearl is a breakthrough combination of a pearl created with high-tech precision and cutting-edge materials. At end of the wand is an oblong form chiselled by ceramic and porcelain polishers, then smoothed with diamond powder. The material is stainless steel, yes the very material used for surgical instruments, due to its hygenic properties. Which means all you need to do is wipe the applicator with a tissue after use and put in back in the bottle. Simple.

It feels super smooth and on application the pearl procures 'a wave of freshness' to illuminate the eye with remarkable sensoriality and a highly relaxing, instantly energising effect. As you continue to massage the eye area with the applicator, it adapts to the skin's temprature for evaluating with levity.

Remember that I said it 'wiggles', well the applicator's unique feature is a 50° rotation angle thereby allowing a high degree of suppleness on application, lightly gliding over the skin, making it perfectly suited to the eye contour. It fits the eye contour like a glove. To put it simply, Lancôme Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl awakens and illuminates eyes.

While Joselyn, Lancôme Malaysia's Education Manager was explaining how the applicator works, I had chance to get a feel of the texture of Lancôme Génifique Yeux. Applied on my hand, the texture is light and almost instantly absorbs into the skin. The formula is fragrance-free. By using the applicator to massage the formula into the skin, the active ingredients and nutrients are released into the skin.

There are a whole bunch of figures showing significant improvement in the eye contour area. I'm not going to share with you guys the whole result of the study that was done, that's going to be too long. So here are the basic numbers just for you guys to get a better idea what the results are.

In Just 7 Days
  • Eye contour skin texture is improved: 71%
  • Eye contour skin seems fresher: 71%
  • Eye contour skin seems moisturised: 84%

After 4 Weeks: Eyes are rejuvenated, under-eye bags are visibly faded

To obtain best results, the formula has to be applied in a specific way with specific massaging action on the eye contour by fully utilising the applicator. Below is a video showing how to apply Lancôme Génifique Yeux Light Pearl as demonstrated Joselyn. I have also included charts after the video.

By applying light pressure on these facial acupressure points with the light-pearl applicator, the eye area is energised and it reduces the excess tension thanks to a "micro-relaxing" action on the eye contour. This is inspired by Shiatsu massage.

My turn to try the Lancôme Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl!

Demonstrated by Alan Lancôme's Skincare Trainer

The applicator felt cool and the massage technique used was slightly firm without any tugging. My eyes felt instantly refreshed and awake. It also looked opened, lifted and brighter. I lurv love the massage technique. It just relaxes the eyes. I got to the  preview with really sleepy eyes, as usual I'm sleep deprived but by the time I left my eyes felt great. I previously tried out Lancôme Génifique Youth Activator and it was amazing for my complexion. Review here. I'm curious what long term use of Lancôme Génifique Yeux can do for my eyes.

The formula is designed for all eyes, including sensitive eyes and contact lens-wearers. Lancôme Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminating Youth Activator will be available at Lancôme counters in September and will retail at RM225 (20ml).
