It never fails. During the tail-end of the year, my under eye area puffs up, acts like a teenager, refuses to cooperate and generally behaves like one of those drunk clowns you want to expel from the nightclub.
Enter: countless eye creams, all promising to be “saviors,” perform miracles etc. etc. We know how the cosmetics industry works: every cream promises to give you that youthful look, reverse aging and baby-soft skin. Naturally, they’re priced accordingly.
When I picked up the heavy jar of Estee Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Cream, I marveled at the packaging. I LOVE the iconic Estee Lauder calligraphy, its failsafe black and gold lettering and elegant cursive. Re-Nutriv Lift is their latest under eye cream launch, and the texture is thick not gooey, and it melts into the skin without leaving any residue.
The ingredients are precious: Black Tourmaline is a charged mineral known for its energetic properties; South Sea Pearls are finely milled to give your complexion a youthful luster; Colloidal Gold is a delicately balanced solution of pure gold atoms.
WOW. With such a consortium of ingredient worker bees (not to mention the price tag — $100), you’d better see some Hillary Rhoda-esque results darn quickly. Well, I have to say, that this precious eye cream did not disappoint.
I’ve been using it religiously for 14 straight days now, and the hydration under my eye area has noticeably improved (i.e. no more dark, raccoon like circles). The puffiness has minimized, and the LUSTER and BRIGHTNESS have increased almost twofold. Thumbs up!
The eye cream aims to lift and increase the skin’s natural collagen production, and it also battles wrinkles and crow’s feet. In short, do I think this jar is worth the $100 price tag? Judging from the results, the quantity (this 0.5 oz jar will last you a lifetime), and the ingredients, I say yes.
But we’re leaving you to be the judge.
One lucky winner will receive a brand new jar of Estee Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Lift Age- Correcting Eye Cream, valued at $100, to start the year 2011 off right. Simply share this post with your friends and give it a like on Facebook and leave a comment below.
Good luck, my beauties!
