I usually use the cellular eye contour cream but I ran out of it and I had a deluxe sample of this eye cream so I decided to give it a try. I'm in my late twenties and I'm concerned w/ dryness, dark circles and laugh lines. this isn't as hydrating as the celluar eye contour cream but the light reflecting particles in it really do brighten the eye area. the effect however is only when i apply it. will I repurchase? guess it depends on if I'm in one of my splurging moods. I will definitely repurchase the cellular eye contour cream which I've been using for the last three years.
(a little background... my mother got this as a gift for me, because i got into law school. i had been complaining that i was developing faint lines underneath my eyes, and was looking for something to make them go away--- i was only 22, after all, and i shouldn't have wrinkles yet, right?! i guess some SA talked her into buying this for me, because i definitely never wanted something so expensive, being an unemployed student! )
i've been using this cream for almost a year. i do like the way it feels on my skin, and i do like the reflective crystals, but sadly, i don't think it does much for my developing wrinkles...
of course, the only other eye cream i've tried is the shiseido benefiance concentrated anti-wrinkle eye cream. i like it too, i find it more moisturizing than la prairie, but it doesn't absorb as well, and stays really shiny and kind of sticky, and sometimes gives me some milia. so, i use la prairie more regularly, because it never irritates my skin or gives me any unwanted growths :)
also, after a year of use, the small pot of cream is still more than half full, so it definitely lasts long!
would i buy it again? i answered yes, because maybe, if i were rich, i would. maybe 20 years down the line. but when i run out, i'm probably going to try something more within my price range :) continued >>
I love this eye cream. I received a sample of it, but decided to give it to my mother as I'm 22 and I thought I was a bit young to be using it. My mom (46) didn't like it as she said it was too glittery and she said it was like putting glitter around her eyes. So she gave me the sample back! And I'm glad she did, I actually like the fact it has sparkaly bits in (the quartz)! But thats all it really does. I think I may buy this eye cream but its so expensive, I'm like a magpie though I like shiny things. I have one line under my eye and the cream doesn't touch it, it doesn't remove my dark circles either, it just makes it sparkle. I am really undecided whether to buy this cream or not? Is it really worth it guys? I think its something rediculous like £178, is it really worth it just for sparkley eyes????
I really wanted to hate this because the price is insane. I refused to purchase it but the SA insisted I give it a try. She was out of samples so she made up a nice sized little pot of the eye cream. I usually use La Mer, Revive Eye Renewal, or Z Bigatti Eye Return. La Mer is my staple and one that I always use in the daytime because it's never greasy and it brightens the eye area.
2 weeks ago I began to use the Cellular Radiance each morning as the SA suggested. I will say this is probably the best eye cream I've used. It brightens, depuffs, erases lines and makes the entire eye area look rejuvenated.
I'm dreading reaching the end of my ample sample because I know that I am going to bite the bullet and buy it.
I recieved a nice-sized sample of this eyecream as a GWP. I love the brillance and sparkle imparted to my under-eye area when I wear this. It works very well with the concealer that comes with the skin caviar foundation LP makes. I am not buying this product, though, because of the $265 price tag and a slightly greasy feeling. It is good but not better than Givenchy's jar of No Surgetics Eye cream that costs around $65 and has a really nice lifting quality.
Not worth the price. I've used La Prairie for many years and decided to try this over the plain old Cellular Eye Cream. Its not hydrating enough and I don't have dry skin. For $150 more its just not worth it. Actually Chanel eye creams seem to work just as well for a fraction of the price.
Incredibly expensive, but I will buy this again. It only takes a little, and the jar lasts forever. The consistentcy is just what I was looking for - not sticky, yet moisturizing. This also has just a touch of light-reflecting shimmer which makes me look more awake without being sparkly or glittery. I've also noticed that the fine lines under my eyes are less noticeable than before.
I am so ADDICTED to this product. My husband and I both use it to banish under eye shadows, and is it ever effective! Before my husband used it the skin beneath his eyes was in really bad shape - very dark, plagued by milia, uneven texture and dry. When he uses this regularly all his former problems go. I get very tired and stressed and this makes the area beneath my eyes dull and dark. This product brightens it and means I don't need 30 layers of concealer ;-)!!! PROS - it works to erase undereye darkness better than anything I ever tried!!!Also you get a lot of it and it lasts and lasts. CONS - It is VERY expensive, and especially so considering I would not recommend anyone except those with the oiliest of skins use it alone. Most people I have spoken to use it like I do, as a treatment over a regular hydrating eye cream. I have to buy it again; I am addicted!!!!
The same thing like with Cellular Radiance Cream. It works temporarily and light-reflective particles can fool you. In a long run you'll notice that it is not so moisturizing. I have heard that it is better for dark circles than for dryness/moisturization problems but since I don't have dark circles I really can't tell.
I am a LP fan and used the caviar eye and cellular eye cream in the last few years. I am 33 and all of a sudden saw some lines under my eyes. Therefore, I switched to the radiance cream and with succes!! It works well for me, especially in combination with the caviar eye product. Stopped a few weeks (as my sample was empty) and lines started to form again. So, I bought a full jar. Very expensive, but woth every penny imo. I received some extra samples, that was nice :-)
