Discover Lancôme's Eye Cream and Eye Serum Range
Lancôme’s range of premium eye creams and serums are expertly designed for the delicate skin around the eye area. Each under eye cream works to target specific skin concerns, leaving skin feeling smooth, brighter and more hydrated. With innovative formulas, Lancôme eye treatments are light in texture and penetrate deeper into the skin to achieve optimal results.
Why use an under eye cream?
An eye cream is an integral part of any good skincare routine, particularly as our skin begins to age. Because the area around the eyes is thinner and more fragile, it shows signs of fatigue and ageing earlier than the rest of the skin. As we smile, squint and move our eyes, we naturally begin to develop fine lines and wrinkles over time, and may also experience dark circles or puffiness.
Many skin products include ingredients like exfoliating acids and retinol which can be too harsh for the thinner skin around the eye. Using a specifically formulated eye cream or eye treatment can help minimise unwanted lines, puffiness or dark circles while maintaining the integrity of the delicate skin. For a timeless bestseller that revitalises and brightens, try Absolue Eye Cream.
What’s in eye cream?
Depending on your skin concern, there are a few key ingredients to look for in an eye cream or eye serum. Peptides, caffeine, ceramides and hyaluronic acid are some of the most common and beneficial. Peptides help make skin look more youthful and plump due to stimulating collagen production. Hyaluronic acid and ceramides help to draw and seal in moisture, while caffeine helps decrease the appearance of bags under the eyes by boosting circulation and constricting blood vessels.
Eye Cream vs Eye Serum
There are two main differences between an eye cream and an eye serum - texture and concentration. An eye serum is thinner and lighter, while an under eye cream is richer and creamier due to oil concentration. The rich cream works to hydrate the area and help with crepiness and texture. A serum focuses less on moisturising and more on the active ingredients for faster absorption into the skin. For example, an eye serum like Absolue Revitalising Anti-Ageing Eye Serum will help reduce signs of fatigue, dark shadows and bags under the eyes. For brightening, an eye cream like Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique Eye Serum makes skin appear brighter and more radiant.
When to use Eye Cream and Eye Serum
When it comes to skincare, the earlier the better. Many people start using an under eye cream in their mid-20s to delay signs of ageing. But it’s never too late to start minimising unwanted lines or dark circles. A few good anti-aging skincare products can help you feel fresher and more youthful at any age. For an anti-wrinkle and firming eye cream that’s designed to firm the skin around the eyes, try Rénergie Yuex Eye Cream.
How to apply eye cream
Apply after your face cream or face serum. Use a pea-sized amount - a little goes a long way. Using your ring finger, gently tap the cream or serum in, working your way out from the inner corner to the outer corner. Take care to avoid using too much pressure or rubbing motions, as this can irritate and stretch the delicate skin around the eye.
