WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT
A little while ago I was searching for a new eye cream. I’m not sure if it’s with age (I’m not really that old) or it’s the colder weather, but I notice some lines underneath my eyes around 2 months ago. So enters this product: the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Last Serum Duo.

I really like the concept of this product, it’s meant to be one of those multifunctional items that can be easily stored in your purse. The eye cream is supposed to smooth out any lines and wrinkles and the last serum is to strengthen and to hydrate your lashes. I’m going to talk about the eye cream first because that’s what I really enjoy the most about the product.

The texture of the cream is very smooth and almost “watery”. A little bit of the product does go a long way. At first, I didn’t notice any dramatic difference, but after using this for 2 months, I notice the lines under my eyes starting to disappear. And the puffiness has gone down a little bit as well. Now, it’s not a miracle product, but I do think with a little patience and time, it does help to smooth the lines under the eye. The cream is definitely worth trying out.

The lash serum, I didn’t really enjoy. Perhaps it’s because my lashes are so short already, but I really didn’t notice any difference. The applicator brush I absolutely detest because it’s not a soft wand but one of those plastic hard wands. So you can really hurt your eyes if you accidentally poke yourself with it. I also find that the serum really stings my eyes as well!

So overall, I like the eye cream but not the lash serum. And since you only get 10ml of the eye cream with this product, I would suggest just buying a full size Olay eye cream instead because this product cost quite a bit. (Ranging from $20-$30 CAD depending on where you go)

    I was looking for a review on this, thanks. About the lashes try coconut oil, I had a bad moment with my super sensitive face and had to find a natural lotion so I tried my coconut oil and after using it for 2 months my eyelashes grew like crazy :-) especially my lower lashes I could really see a big difference i have more volume as well. I changed my face lotion but with a qtip I line my eyes every night with coconut oil :-)
