Our eyes are the windows to our soul, yet we put them under duress with long hours of screen time, not reading under proper lighting and tugging at them roughly. Did you know that our eye area is three times thinner than the rest of the face and less protected as its barrier function is weaker?
Additionally, as we blink around 10,000 times a day, engaging 22 different muscles, the eye contour area is subject to continuous stress. In addition to this mechanical stress, the eye area is naturally less protected and vulnerable to many damaging factors: lack of sleep, harsh makeup removal, pollution, mask-wearing, stress, dry weather, and other external aggressors. All of these elements can further weaken the skin barrier around the eyes.
Lancôme's newly reformulated Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl eye & lash serum is tipped as the champion of puffiness, as it works to strengthen the eye contour barrier while smoothing and firming lines. together with the Advanced Génifique Yeux eye cream, the two skincare champions target the effects of eye contour stressors to reveal smoother, brighter, younger-looking eyes.
Here's what we know in a nutshell:
Contains 7 pre-and probiotic fractions
Contains caffeine extract that helps reduce puffiness

What is Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl eye & lash serum
The new Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl eye and lash serum contains seven pre-and probiotic fractions specifically chosen for their action on the skin microbiome. In addition, it also contains caffeine extract known to be a stimulant and reduce puffiness and arginine known to fortify lashes.
Engineered with a 360° patented stainless-steel cryo-pearl, it accesses 100% of the eye contour – including the most hard-to-reach areas. The brand claims it has a proven -3° instant cooling effect, where the solution will immediately relieve ocular fatigue as it is moved in a circular motion to provide a cooling massage.
My review of Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl eye & lash serum: What I think of it & does it really work?
I've been using Lancôme's Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl eye & lash serum for over a little two months now, and the most significant result I noticed is how my eyebrow and lashes have grown longer. The amino acid arginine found in the solution is one of the most important tools for building keratin. Arginine is also found in hair shampoos to promote growth and blood circulation.
The result is particularly prominent when I apply mascara to my eyelashes – I can see they've become longer and stronger too. A gentle wipe of the makeup remover does not make my eyelashes fall as easily as they used to!
I was also surprised that a few under-eye lines have reduced via its firming capabilities, although I wouldn't say significantly due to a number of factors I subject myself to, such as exposure to sun, number of hours of rest or sleep, and diet. There are days when I do sleep later than usual, and I wake up with saggy eyes, and I wish for Botox injectables for a more prominent result.
The applicator, which is the 360° patented stainless-steel cryo-pearl, is a delight to use, and even though I place the bottle outside on my beauty shelf, the solution feels cooling when I apply it to my under eyes. It's also very easy to use with a gentle roll, it isn't messy and it feels like it doesn't break easily. I like that the product is contained in a glass bottle, not plastic, making it a bit more environmental-friendly as it can be recycled.
Is Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl eye & lash serum worth the buy?
Some users have praised the product for its soothing and hydrating function, while others love it for strengthening the eyelashes.
I feel this is a great addition to my beauty routine as it helps to soothe my eye area without any skin allergy. It doesn't come cheap at S$132 a bottle, but the product checks two of my main concerns, and I'd say this is a good buy if you're looking to reduce some fine lines as well as grow your eyelashes.
