Hello everyone~ I guess I will always be in need of eye care product because I have terrible dark circles and I love to try many eye care products to decide which one suits me best. A while ago, I got an opportunity to try Lancome Eye Illuminator. You might ask me, what is the the difference between Eye Illuminator and Eye Cream? To me, they're pretty much same. LOL XD

BEFORE & AFTER
This Eye Illuminator's texture itself is not too thick nor too runny. It has light scent that doesn't bothering me.
However, the usage of the applicator is quite tricky. You will find some residue on your eyes area next morning, if you put too much cream, and it will eventually develop milias. Unfortunately this product doesn't lessen my dark circles appearance, because that's not the main purpose of this Eye Illuminator. The main benefit of Lancome Genifique Yeux is transforming eyes for smoother, more luminous, younger-looking eyes.
After using this product for months (till now), I can feel my eyes area become more awake, and youthful :)
It helps a lot when I lack of sleeps, because it makes my eyes area skin look smoother and firmer.
+ Makes my eyes area become more awake next day
+ Makes my eyes are look firmer
+ Moisturizes my eyes area well
- The pearl applicator is quite difficult to use
- The result isn't too significant
