OUR EDITORIAL REVIEW

Packaging:

This lip and eye contour cream comes in a very beautiful and elegant dark blue pot, with a gold fluted metal cover that has the logo of Guerlain on it. It looks like a precious jewelry box and would look good on your makeup table. However, it is heavy and not practical for transport or travel. It comes with a small spatula, which is great for hygienic purposes as it avoids having to use your fingers when placing the product on your skin. However, for a fast skin care routine, this product might be inconvenient.

Texture:

It has a nice texture as it is very rich without being greasy on the face. Moreover, it requires you to place only a bit of product on the skin to feel that it covered smoothly and entirely the surface around your eyes and lips; therefore, although there is a relatively little quantity of product in the pot, the cream can last a couple of months before drying out.

Smell:

It has a very light, and delicate floral scent, that would probably charm you rather than bother you, unless you are extremely sensitive.

Effect:

As soon as we applied it around the eyes, we noticed that it penetrated very well the skin, making it possible for us to place the makeup on the face afterwards. It moisturized and soothed the skin in a great way, leaving us feeling fresh, nourished and relaxed. After a few days, we noticed a reduction in wrinkles and in dark circles around the eyes, however, bear in mind that they didn’t disappear entirely. It also felt like the eyes were more stretched and lifted, which felt and looked great. When we applied it around the lips, we felt that it hydrated the contour of the lips and made it subtle and smooth.
Guerlain states that this product contains Orchidarium, a rare ingredient found in Orchids known for its benefits on the skin.

Price:

This pot is priced 220$ for (15 ML). It is one of the most expensive products in the market. In fact, eye and lip contour creams from other high-end brands have lower prices for a similar capacity. It is also way more expensive than eye and lip contour creams from mid-range brands.
It might be good to test some samples of it before purchasing it, unless you are a woman who is really bothered by the tired quality of your skin and are impatient to have this product.
