Lancôme’s Absolue L’Extrait Ultimate Eye Contour Collection ($250.00) is a “visibly transforming eye balm-elixir with the massaging applicator” and an “innovative eye mask” in the same package.
According to Lancôme, these paired products were “specially designed and created by Lancôme’s laboratories” and they “combine our [Lancôme’s] most precious and powerful ingredients, with a custom-made application tool for a unique sensorial experience.”
And if that’s not enough, the “innovative eye mask, made from an exclusive bio-cellulose (other key ingredients are Pro-Xylane and Lancôme Rose Native Cells), leaves the skin feeling divinely fresh.” Used together, the eye balm-elixir and cooling eye mask are said to provide visible results.
Lancôme suggests using the product for 6 weeks, but I tried it for 3 before writing my review. First, I used the teardrop-shaped under eye masks for 10-minutes, twice a week as directed; I just loved how they felt (so pampering and luxurious!), and how well they adhered to the skin, so I could go about my business while they were on.
Next, I used the cream, a dreamy, pale pink concoction that smelled of roses — heaven! — twice a day. I liked the tool that came with it — a spatula-like head on one side and a faceted head on the other. At night, I ran the head under warm water; in the morning, under cool to rev up my tired skin.
Now, anyone who has read my reviews knows I am pretty skeptical when it comes to very high-priced products, because I often feel that while they are good, the results do not justify those prices; I find that you can get the same results with more modestly priced alternatives.
But this product is exceptional! I really felt that my delicate under eye area was soothed and calmed by the combo. The puffiness I usually see was definitely improved, the skin just felt so much tauter and stronger.
For $1,200, you can get the Absolue L’Extrait Black Crystal Light Edition. See how it was crafted HERE:
I did not see any difference in terms of dark shadows (mine are stubborn!) or fine lines disappearing, but I am willing to bet I will soon. And the results this duo did deliver have me sold. Yes, it’s pricey — but I’m worth it!
So, do you beauties think you’re worth it? Will you be splurging on this eye cream duo?
