La Mer The Eye Balm Intense $165.00
In a short while, the look of puffiness, lines, and wrinkles is diminished as clarity is revealed. La Mer's proprietary silver-tipped applicator cools skin on contact to help stimulate microcirculation.
La Mer has two eye creams- The Eye Concentrate and The Eye Balm Intense. The Eye Concentrate is more of a complete treatment to me, because it treats dark circles on top of lines and puffiness. Fans of La Mer would know that The Original La Mer Eye Balm has been around forever, but they took it off the shelf and was sold by request only after The Eye Concentrate was introduced.
I've used both Eye Concentrate and Eye Balm Intense and the main difference to me was that the Eye Balm Intense felt a lot more heavier and moisturizing than the Eye Concentrate. However, I have dark circles and the Eye Balm Intense doesn't really treat dark circles as well as the Eye Concentrate, but I do think the Eye Balm Intense is better for puffiness.
The Eye Balm Intense is great for people with puffiness under their eyes and it provides great moisture. The texture is very creamy and goes on smooth like velvet. It also comes with the silver-tipped applicator that helps to stimulate microcirculation, but honestly, who actually uses the applicator? It's kind of a hassle having to clean it after each use and my biggest problem with the applicator is that there's no easy sanitary way of storing it. I wish it comes with an enclosed case of some sort so it's not just laying around on your bathroom counter.
Overall, it's a solid eye cream. My mom loves it, my friends love it, and I still use it. My review for The Eye Concentrate will be here soon!
Verdict: Buy it!
La Mer The Eye Balm Intense is $165.00
