Review of Nuxe Contour des Yeux Prodigieux by PaleIsTheNewTan
It's good, but not spectacular. My first foray into Nuxe skincare has not been all that impressive, and apart from some mild interest in lip products, I will not be repurchasing this or (the more expensive, and presumably, more intensive) Nirvana eye cream.
Apart from the packaging, there's nothing particularly grand about this eye cream. I have normal to dry, sensitive skin, with an especially dehydrated eye contour area. While I've found my HG for the AM (Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminee Eye & Lip Contour Cream), I was looking for something heavier at nighttime, that might be both more convenient to get than the Babor one I was using, and that might be a little bit cheaper. Retailing for $35 at Shoppers Drug Mart, and netting me some Bonus Optimum Points, I was eager to try this. Unfortunately, this product is just average.
If you are looking for some very basic, moisture - this is a nice option for those just looking into a 'starter' eye cream. The product is quite fluid - more like a lotion than a cream, and when pushed to use it in the AM when my Caudalie stand-by had run out, this settled in quickly, and nicely under undereye concealer and YSL's Touche Eclat. Though it claimed to diminish the appearance of dark circles, I noticed no such change in my (albeit, already mild) undereye darkness. Nor did I notice any dramatic change in the look of fine lines. While it worked nicely in the AM, this doesn't have the cooling or 'pep' action (for lack of a better term) of a lot of more gel-like eye creams I have tried. This leaves me at a loss - it truly does not have enough moisture to make it worthy of a night treatment, but it also doesn't have enough rev-up effect to convince me to repurchase for use in the AM.
I do not have sensitive eyes, nor am I a contact lense wearer, so for how well it would fare for people with eye conditions, I cannot say. I noticed no irritation whatsoever, either right away or after 2 months of continuous use in the PM.
2 lipsticks for the actual product (it's what inside that counts), with 1 lipstick for the packaging. It'd be nice if more eye creams came in such sanitary packaging. While I will finish the product up, as it isn't absolute crap, I will not be repurchasing.
