As promised, here are my thoughts on a real beauty of an eye cream! I picked up Voile Hydratant as part of my recent-ish Thalgo haul (click here if you missed that post).
Price: approx. $28.00 AUD online; RRP in Australia is $43.00 (ouch!)
Where can I get it? Your local Thalgo certified beauty salon or good ol’ eBay.
I was keen to use a Thalgo eye cream on a regular basis after being very happy with their Collagen Cream facial moisturiser. As Thalgo describes Voile Hydratant as offering “prevention against first wrinkles”, this particular product is designed for “young” skin (<30 years of age). (For those with more mature skin, don’t fret as Thalgo has a variety of eye products suited to different age groups.)
I’ve been using the product since I received it in early February. In a word, it’s AWESOME!:)
The cream is actually a gel, which is very refreshing under and around the eyes. As it is a gel, you do not have to worry about possibly dragging your finger across the skin when applying it, because it just glides. It is also fragrance free, which I prefer in products used on my face.
OK. So how does it go in terms of actual performance? I have a few fine (smile) lines around my eyes, and these have visibly reduced. Woot! 🙂 It doesn’t, however, reduce puffiness which I can experience at times if I have had a late night.
Like most eye creams, a little goes a long way. I have plenty left, even after a month of use.
I strongly recommend this cream to the <30s.
Beautiful Rating: quality 5/5 (5 as whilst it doesn’t act on puffiness, it is not designed to nor advertised to target that), value 5/5 (on eBay).
Well, as many of you may know, I really love Thalgo skin care products! (Click here to read my past reviews and posts on this topic :)) As such I have decided to gradually convert most of my skin care products to Thalgo. I generally find that their products help my skin maintain a healthy equilibrium rather than get too dry or become too oily. Also, their products last a long time as a little goes a long way!
Yes, Thalgo can be considered an expensive brand – if you buy it direct from your beauty salon. Thank goodness for eBay! I have found a reputable seller of Thalgo (and other brands) there, who sells most things for 1/2 of their AUD RRP, and received my second order from them yesterday. I was so excited! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 (Yep you can pretty much say I’m addicted to Thalgo!)
I ordered a Cocooning Cleansing Milk (cleansing cream – it is for sensitive skin but I chose this over the one for combo-oily because the latter contains vitamin C extract which irritates my skin) and a Moisturising Eye Care cream. I was lucky to also receive several bonus goodies and samples, including:
I can’t wait to try all of the Thalgo stuff out; I will post up reviews of each of the products as I go, to help
convert (;) !) guide others who might be interested in this brand. 🙂
Has anyone else tried Thalgo products? What do you think of them?
