Today I’ll review one my current favorite eye care product and its from non other than Avene and its their Eluage Eye Contour Care cream! If you have been following me you would know I am a huge fan of Avene skin care products! I swear by Avene Cleanance Cleansing Face Wash and Thermal Spring Water both of which I have repurchased numerous times!

My experience with Avene Eluage Eye Contour Care Cream:
A little about my horrendous dark circles, I have extreme dryness around my eyes which often gets worse during winter time, so much worse that I tend to get infection on my eyelids! Due to extreme dryness my skin around eyes is also very sensitive. I have very dark under eye area and upper lids, one due to extreme dryness in the skin and second its heredity. Previously I have tried many creams like the famous aroma magic eye cream/gel, organic surge eye gel, aloe vera, almond oil etc etc but non came close to the results which Avene Eluage Eye Contour cream gave!
I was given couple of samples of this cream to try a month back when I bought Avenes Thermal Spring water which is a must have in my skin care routine and I use it every single day! I finished off one sample and still have one more to go so 2ml sample lasted me almost a month! I am sure full size which contains 15ml will easily last me 5 to 6 months! I have used this cream religiously every day twice morning and evening for past 3 – 4 weeks and I absolutely love it! The cream is light yellow in color and absorbs easily into the skin leaving matte finish! The eye area appears brighter and well moisturized! It does not leave behind any oily residue on the skin and gets absorbed in seconds!
This is the first and only cream which has actually worked in improving the skin around my eyes! Yes my eyes area brighter and the skin looks nourished! It has reduced fine lines which I have below my eyes and also worked on creases and lines on my upper eye lid! My dark circles have reduced, yes! But beware nothing dramatic but the eye area appears much smoother and brighter making my dark circles appear a lot less dark. I sleep very late in the night and still when I wake up my eyes look well rested! Its not over creamy and is just perfect for under eye area..most of the heavy eye creams give me millia seed but this one doesn’t! Absolutely love this cream and will recommend to everyone!
