It’s the Lancôme Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activator and the media launch was held early August 2012, you could read more here. Basically, this eye serum offers delicate and precise massaging on the eye contour area which helps to deflate the eye bags for smoother and more luminous eye area.

It comes with a new age applicator which is called Light-Pearl where it has 50º angle rotation which allows a high degree of suppleness during application. It’s made out of surgical stainless steal but incredibly soft and smooth chiselled with ceramic and porcelain polishers then smoothen with diamond powder.

This serum is meant to use before the eye cream in skin care regime and it also can be used over the makeup for instant relief of eye tiredness. Most of the time, I used it for only in my skin care regime and this is how I use the eye serum.

  • Step 1 – dab the serum on the undereye
  • Step 2 – massage the serum using the Light-Pearl in circular motions
  • Step 3 – using the Light-Pearl to press on pressure points. If you’re aren’t aware where are the pressure points, you could refer here.
  • Step 4 – use the Light-Pearl the massage upwards from the brow bone to ‘lift’
  • Step 5 – continue to dab with finger until its absorb

The basic application is to dab, massage and blend. You can definitely play around with the applicator for your best pleasure of massage in your own way. Massaging is very important in promoting blood circulation.

A very important step after application is to clean the Light-Pearl with tissue or facial cotton. It may sound troublesome but this is to remain the purity of the serum. Especially if using this serum over makeup, this step is crucial.

I have used it for a month and I love the instant refreshing effect from it. Pardon on the lightings of my photo due to the weather changes. Looking carefully on my inner corner under eye, the redness as reduced quite a bit until Week 4. I was having flu on the entire Week 4, the nasal congestion affected the results. I notice that my eye puffiness did reduce progressively and under eye did felt smoother.

I know I have repeated this but I’m going to say it again, I love the instant refreshing effect! It totally helps to waken up tired eyes. With the Light-Pearl, I massage my eye area more often than I used to which it is a good thing because I hardly do so with my eye cream. This acts as a booster to the eye cream, making it to work more effectively or can be use alone. I blame for my sickness that screwed up the results.
