I didn't wait till now to review this because I wanted to see the full effects of the eye concentrate. I forgot about it!
Clinique All About Eyes (Taken from Clinique website http://www.clinique.com/product/CATEGORY21364/PROD503/Skin_Care/Eye__Lip_Care/index.tmpl)
Lightweight eye cream diminishes the appearance of eye puffs, darkness and fine lines. Non-creep, cream/gel formula actually helps hold eye makeup in place. For use morning and night, both under eyes and on lids. Ophthalmologist Tested.
Skin Types: All
Lancome Genifique Youth Eye Concentrate (http://www.lancome-usa.com/skincare/genifique.aspx?tab=eye)
Price: Obviously Clinique All About Eyes is cheaper. It costs USD$28.50 as compared to Lancome's USD$59 for a 0.5 oz bottle. I guess if you waited for the 20% discount, you could get Genifique for USD $47.20.
Packaging: Genifique comes in a heavy glass container, whereas Clinique comes in a plastic container. I recently had an accident with my Genique serum. DH dropped my bottle onto the floor by accident. The glass dropper broke inside and now I have to be really careful when I pour out my serum. I do understand why glass containers are used though. Some ingredients react with plastic.
Consistency: Genifique has a cream/gel with a firmer texture than Clinique's. It absorbs quickly into the skin. Clinique is more liquidy and takes slightly longer to absorb into the skin.
Effectiveness: I use Genifique twice a day (night/day) whereas I only use Clinique after my gym sessions because I just can't risk breaking my Genifique if I were to take it out. I don't have many fine lines or dark circles. My undereye area isn't really dry too. So I can't really see any significant changes before or after I use it. I don't see an increase in fine lines and the undereye area isn't dry or crepey so I guess it is doing its job. I don't use Clinique enough to tell the difference.Ratings for Clinique All About Eyes: 3 lipsticks
