THIS WAS CREATED BY HARPER’S BAZAAR SINGAPORE FOR LANCÔME
We’ve all been there — late nights fuelled by caffeine and human willpower. Be it a deadline you have to make or a crazy night out with your mates, we’ve all gotten out of bed looking like we haven’t slept a wink. Puffiness, dark circles and fine lines creep up to reflect the hectic lifestyle we are engaging in and most times, majority will turn to concealers to hide their excess (eye) baggage. While concealers help on a surface level, the problem will keep occuring if it isn’t addressed at the root.
Lancôme‘s much-loved Génifique line came through with a new and improved eye cream formula that not only addresses signs of aging, but is also made for busy women who might not be getting adequate beauty sleep. Targeting dark circles as you sleep, you’ll wake up with the confidence to go *gasp* concealer-less.

In line with the rest of the Génifique range, you can bet that their hero cocktail of probiotic fractions that penetrate the skin deeply is in the new formula of the Advanced Génifique Eye Cream. This unassuming cream in a sleek black and silver jar is supercharged with millions of probiotic fractions that are formulated to be more readily absorbed into the skin for increased effectiveness. Lancôme also added lactobacillus on top of their previous duo of bifidus and yeast for a more potent cocktail of probiotic extracts that strengthen the skin barrier, improve the appearance of fine lines and decrease the look of dark circles. The skin drinks up this powerful cocktail of active ingredients thanks to Advanced Génifique Eye Cream’s light, creamy gel texture for easy absorption. The lightweight texture also makes it perfect before makeup application as the cream dries to a velvety smooth finish, making undereye concealer application a breeze.

Although, you might not even need to bother with concealer as ingredients like chlorella diminishes dark circles by enhancing microcirculation while blackwheat wax depuffs eyebags. This powerful little tub is exactly what tired eyes need to replenish, hydrate and rejuvenate the skin around the eyes. Hence, no matter how crazy your schedule gets, take just a few minutes of your day to take care of the delicate eye area. Maybe even throw in a little eye massage to increase blood circulation and help the active ingredients penetrate even deeper.
You can try it for yourself as you can sign up for their complementary 15 minute Eye Glow Service & Trial Kit right here. So regardless how much beauty sleep you’ve sacrificed, you’ll always look fresh-faced and ready to take on the world.
Dare we say, sans concealer even!
