Lancome Renergie Yeux Multiple Lift

Renergie Yeux Multiple Lift is the latest addition to the Lancome anti-age family, with an innovative technology of two formulas to completely rejuvenate the whole eye area. It was developed with a top leading plastic surgeon – Dr. Patrick Bui, expert in gaze rejuvenation.

I know I’m not exactly the ideal candidate for the cream, as i am only 27 and don’t have any deep set wrinkles (yet!). When you read “multiple lift” automatically you think that it will have a strong anti-aging effect, which it does and you wonder why for the love of God a 27 year old would use it.

Because i have dark circles, aquired with a combination of genetics and self-harm (coffee, workaholic, early mornings) and this cream promises that it will help me get rid of them. Simple as.

Lets get into the science bit:

 Two formulas, six benefits.

The base formula consists in the Volumetric lifting cream which will reduce wrinkles and fine lines, will firm up the eye contour and it will lift the eyelids.

Yes, the cream can be applied under the eye (on the bone), on the lids and on top of the brow to support the lifting effect and rejuvenate completely the eye area. There is a little massaging technique that goes really well with the cream and helps smoothing out the fine lines. I’m not the best at explaining it, but at the moment, Lancome offers free eye spas on counter (takes about 10min) to show you exactly how it can be used. This is how i got convinced to try it out.

The ingredient that it will help me fade the dark circles is Haloxyl, which is used in cosmetic surgery to brighten up the eye.

The top formula is an Illuminating Protecting Care rich in highlighting pigments and with skincare benefits like fading dark circles, deflating under eye bags and immediate illuminating effect.

Contrary to first impressions, it is not a concealer. You would still apply your favorite concealer and carry on with foundation as usual. Because its actually skincare, the top formula can be applied even at night time so you can sleep with it and get full benefits.

The top formula comes in one shade to suit all complexions. Tried to swatch it on my hand, without much success – its so subtle that the camera doesnt catch the tone.

 Not much there for you to see…

After 3 weeks of daily use:

I believe it really makes a difference on my whole eye area, i look more rested and my little dehydration lines are gone. I can definitely say that my dark circles seem to look faded (when i have no makeup on) and after i apply the highlighter and concealer they are completly gone.

The cream is smooth, you need a pea size of product to work it into the skin and massage it thoroughly with the ring finger. After 3 weeks, it looks good as new.

The top formula melts on top of the cream, you warm it up with the fingers and apply little highlighting dots all around the eye and then you just blend everything together. It doesn’t get set in the fine lines, doesn’t cake and the eye makeup sits beautifully on it.

 Price: 53 euro.

 

N.B. I got the cream part of a goodie bag at a Lancome briefing.

    Dear Andreea,

    My name is Delfina and I’m 19. I have the WORST dark circles I’ve ever seen, and some people think I should do something about it. I usually just conceal them with make up and they’re ok, but it would be amazing if they could be reduced a bit.
    My mother uses this product, LANCOME MULTIPLE LIFT, and I was wondering if I could use just the top formula (I don’t think the base formula is helpfull for me and that it could not be good for such a young skin). Besides she runs out of the base formula and has lots of the top one…

    I would like to know your opinion about it, do you think it would be good?

    Thank you,

    Delfina

    Hi Delfina, the most important thing for you is to find an anti dark circle eye cream/gel preferably with vit c content. You can use of course the top part of renergie but only on top of an eye cream, it won’t harm you at all.

    Some nice anti dark circle products are the garner caffeine roll on, vichy aqualia, la roche posay hydraphase eye, the body shop vit c gel and of course, Lancôme hydrazen gel.

    Hope it helps x
