LA PRAIRIE Cellular Eye Contour Cream 15ml
I’ve almost finished this (mine is a mini 5ml tub commonly found in GWPs) so while I’m waiting for my new eye cream to arrive in the mail, here’s a little review. （･∀･）ﾆﾔﾆﾔ
This is actually only the second eye cream I’ve used. (The first was a LANCOME gel that stung my skin whenever I used it and put me off LANCOME skin care. ｲﾔo((＞ω＜o))((o＞ω＜))oｲﾔ) I didn’t have the habit of using a separate moisturiser for the eye area in the past, but lately my eye area has been dry and I’m thankful for this little tub! ﾓﾌﾓﾌ（´ω`*）
I’m not very concerned with dark circles or puffiness so what I look for in eye creams is moisture or hydration.
The Cellular Eye Contour Cream is the most basic of LA PRAIRIE’s eye creams, which is probably why it’s often included in GWPs. It’s a hydrating eye cream, and that’s it.
It has a rich, emollient almost balm like texture. It can be greasy, but I only use this at night before bed so greasiness is okay. If I use a generous amount (which I usually do), it does sort of feel like it’s just sitting on top of my skin without being absorbed.
I do feel that it’s nicely moisturising, and it doesn’t irritate my skin, but that’s about it. I don’t think it does anything else apart from moisturise (and at least it doesn’t really claim to either). It hasn’t given me millia, but I use my face creams around my eye with (mostly) no problem so it’s quite subjective.
The cream is lightly scented, but I find the LA PRAIRIE fragrance pleasant.
I don’t plan on purchasing a full sized version because I want to try other more affordable eye cream options. I’ve only used two eye creams after all, and my needs are quite simple. I’m also not a huge fan of LA PRAIRIE as I feel they are always discontinuing their old, good products to release increasingly expensive new ones. I have no interest in $500 creams! (−＂−怒) [/rant]
