I have saggy eyelids. It's genetic. All my family's lids droop from under the brow over the eyelid as we age. It starts after 30. Yes I would love an eye-lift of George Clooney quality but I would be afraid the result would be more Joan Rivers. I never considered that there would be a product for saggy lids. I bought this to help reduce my crows feet (I am blessed with them too!). Imagine my surprise and delight when, after only one application, my eyelids didn't droop as much!! I couldn't believe it. Same thing happened the next day, and the next.... It doesn't reduce it completely but I am definitely more alert looking (without the "surprised teddy bear" look). I would definitly recommend trying it. I use only the tiniest amount each day - it is dispensed from a dropper (I hate them) but I merely wipe the tip of my ring finger on the outside of the dropper to get less than a grain of rice, press my two ring fingers together, then apply all over my lids and under the eye sockets. I hope this way to make it last longer as it is very expensive and I don't want to have to buy it more than once every two years!!!
It does seem to reduce the appearence of dark circles and it fills in the fine lines around mymeyes. Mfor 36 years old my eye area looks better than when I was in my 20's! But the price...a little bit goes a long way thank God!
I liked this as a "primer" for eye cream. But the packaging was irritating as I depleted the product, and it didn't offer enough "depuffing" action to warrant buying it again.
Such a great product. I splurged and purchased a bottle of this last year when I got horrible allergies from working in a library. The dust really screwed up the area around my eyes, but this soothed my red, itchy, swollen eyes really fast. It might have been the result of many things at the time, but I owe part of it to La Prairie. Wish I could keep buying this... =(
I'm also impressed that there's no alcohol in this. Usually, eye gels have some sort of alcohol in the top ingredients.
Takes care of under eyes circles like no other eye product I have used, which includes products from Clarins, Givenchy, Lancome, Darphin, Clinque, Origins and Chanel. For me, the transformative result was almost immediate: darkness reduced to such an extent that under eye area in general appears more refreshed and brighter. Expensive yes, but worth it for this level of performance.
This eye gel was a dissapointment. I couldnt see any benefits from usage and wont buy its again.
I am very happy with this eye serum. It helps diminish my fine lines/wrinkles and keeps the eye area hydrated in conjunction with an eye cream.
Cause I'm always on the hunt for less expensive products with similar results, I tried Shiseido's Benefiance NutriPerfect Eye Serum. Shiseido's serum was nice but LP's serum works better for my eyes. The lines are even less pronounced and the upper portion of my eyes look more refreshed and awake with LP's. I know both of these products actually work because I stopped using an eye serum for a few weeks, whilst still using my Awake eye cream. Wow, my eyes aged a whole decade in those few weeks. The lines and wrinkles were pronounced and the area quite dry. I couldn't apply my corrector or concealer without making the eye area a lined and crepey mess. I quickly started back up with LP's eye serum and my eyes look much better as well as makeup application easier.
The only reason this doesn't get a 5 rating is that it doesn't help much with my moderate to heavy dark circles. That said, nothing I've tried helps with my circles (including using all serums with the Clarisonic Opal). Also, I wish this came in a pump form.
It's pricey $120 but not as bad as the corresponding Caviar eye cream $295. I do love that it's travel friendly.
This has been the best product I've found in years for my eyes. It has really soothed my crepey, sensitive dry eyes and stopped them sagging so much in the mornings! I use the cellular eye cream over the top and this is perfect for me. It is very expensive but I'm happy to pay for something that actually works as I've wasted so much money trying loads of other products.
This is one of the best products I have ever used. I bought a full bottle in December (08) and finished it in July(09)! This is a very runny serum, almost as a water. I used it once a day (night time only) and still could see a result. I think that the effect is very cumulative. It didn't show up immediately but after one month of using I could really see that my eye lids were really lifted and no other cream had ever given me such an effect. This is what impressed me the most. I think that for a few months later I could still feel it.
The whole eye area actually became more tight and creepiness had disappeared. But you still need to use a richer cream to moisture and protect the area.
Very expensive product but worth it and last for a long time. I will definitely buy it when I feel that I need some lifting again :)
