SVR Chronolys 1st Wrinkle Eye Contour Cream Review

svr chronolys eye contour

 

SVR is a brand available in pharmacies for which I have first heard when I was looking for a Vitamin C serum. It turns out that, besides Vitamin C products, they have quite a choice of high percentage glycolic acid exfoliators. I’m currently using one any you can expect a review in the next two or three weeks.

What I’ll review today is SVR Chronolys 1st Wrinkles Eye Contour cream. The cream comes in a 15ml tube and retails for approximately $20 to $25. Since SVR often has 20% off, you can save quite a bit if you buy it during the promotion.

Chronolys eye contour cream first surprised me by its consistency – I have expected something thicker and creamier and instead I got a runny, lotion-like product. However, don’t be fooled by it – it is very moisturizing, even though you need a tiny bit, as it spreads easily. The lightness of the formula helps the cream to sink in quickly, so this is a good choice to use in the morning before applying make-up.

The cream has a mild, slightly chemical scent which can barely be felt.

All in all, I’m very satisfied. Chronolys is considerably more moisturizing than Bioderma Sensibio and I expect that I’ll use it for a long time.

SVR je ne tako poznati brand dostupan u ljekarnama za koji sam prvi put čula kada sam tražila serume s vitaminom C dostupne na našem tržištu. Osim proizvoda s vitaminom C, SVR ima I dobar izbor proizvoda s visokim postotkom glikolne kiseline. Trenutno koristim jedan njihov piling koji ću recenzirati za par tjedana.

Danas ću recenzirati SVR Chronolys 1st Wrinkled Eye Contour kremu oko očiju za prve bore. Krema dolazi u tubi on 15 ml i košta oko 120 kuna. Ja sam svoju kremu kupila u Farmacia ljekarni kada su imali 20% popusta na SVR proizvode. Oni inače često znaju imati promocije tako da se isplati čekati popust i nešto uštedjeti.

Chronolys krema me je iznenadila svojom teksturom – očekivala sam nešto gušće i kremastije, a dobila sam gotovo tekuću teksturu. Svejedno, nemojte da vas tekstura zavara – krema je poprilično hranjiva te je dovoljna mala količina proizvoda jer se krema lako razmazuje. Zbog svoje lagane formule, krema se brzo upija pa je pogodna za korištenje ispod šminke.

Krema ima blag, jedva primjetan miris.

Sve u svemu, jako sam zadovoljna ovom kremom. Chronolys je puno hidratantiniji od Biodermine Sensibio okoloočne kreme, te vjerujem da ću ovoj kremi ostati vjerna na duži period.

SISLEY Eye Contour Mask Review and Ingredients

This is another Sisley product that I can’t live without and I cannot believe that it took me so long to review it. What’s best, I didn’t have to purchase it yet, thanks to the bunch of samples and GWP tubes. When the samples and GWPs will be gone, I’ll have to shell out $120 for a 30ml tube.

In the terms of consistency and texture, it is similar to Sisley Express Flower Gel – a thick whiteish gel, only without the scent. I use it rarely – on average twice or thrice per month and I need a tiny, rice-sized amount for one eye. It might feel a bit uncomfortable and sticky when you apply it, so I suggest to use it in the evening before you go sleep. The instructions say that you should wipe off the excess after 10 minutes, but I just go sleep with the mask on and leave it to skin during the night.

In the morning, the eye-contour area is very moisturized. The few tiny under-eye lines are non-existent and there are no dark circles around the eyes. I especially like to use it when I feel that my skin is super parched and needs extra moisture boost.

This is an excellent product, although it might be unnecessary if you already have Express Flower Gel.

BIODERMA Sensibio Eye Cream Review

As I was finishing Avene Eye Contour cream, I have started to look for something new. I grabbed Bioderma Sensibio without giving it too much thought – somehow I’m not sure whether I want a highly moisturizing cream or an anti ageing cream.

I’ve been using Bioderma for 2 months so far.

The cream comes in a 15ml plastic tube and it retails for around $12. The cream is scentless.

The cream doesn’t make any fancy promises, there aren’t any exotic ingredients – just a plain cream.

The cream is soothing and slightly moisturizing, but I still have to use it twice per day.

The texture is very light, gel-like. You only need a tiny amount (the size of a rice) as it spreads easily. It sinks in almost immediately, so this might be a good choice if you are looking for a cream that you’ll put on in the morning before applying make-up.

I haven’t experience any negative effects – I’m wearing contacts and the cream hasn’t irritated my eyes.

I’d recommend this cream to young girls who have no issues with eye-contour skin, but they would like to use something. I sometimes feel that I could benefit of a more moisturizing textre. As I’ve mentioned before, it might be a good under-make-up cream, too.

SISLEY Eye and Lip Contour Balm Review and Ingredients

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Sisley Eye and Lip Contour Balm comes in a 30ml jar which retails for $135. It claims that it minimizes fine-lines, puffiness and dryness.

TEXTURE

The texture was the most surprising. Since it is called a balm, I have expected more greasy, oily texture. What I got is a sticky, transparent gel. Texture-wise it feels slightly lighter than their Eye Contour Mask (one day I have to write a review of that product).

REVIEW

I have tested a sample which contained 1,5ml. Prior to writing the review, I’ve been using it once per day for two weeks and there is still some product left.

I can’t say that I’m very happy with this product. My main issue is eye-contour dryness, especially now, during the winter when Avene eye-contour cream doesn’t do it for me. I don’t have issues with puffiness, so my review might not be very helpful on that account.

My first impression was that Eye and Lip Contour Balm is not the product one should use in the morning, before make-up. The texture is very sticky and it doesn’t sink in quickly. If you use smaller amounts, it might work if you wait at least half an hour for it to skin in. However, I have found it very hard to spread a small amount. While a half a pea-sized amount (for both eyes) spreads out without a problem, spreading out the smaller amount included a lot of tugging.

I’ve been using a larger amount, which I have spread out in a thick layer and went to sleep.

After using it for two weeks, I can say that it is not especially moisturizing. Don’t get me wrong – in the terms of hydration, it is not worse than Avene, but why pay several times more for the same effect?

I also did an experiment – I have put the balm in the refrigerator and applied it cold. It was really refreshing. If you have only puffiness issue, you might want to consider keeping the balm in the refrigerator to maximize the effect.

Overall, I do not recommend it. It is not a bad product, but it doesn’t do anything that much cheaper products would. I really cannot justify paying this price for a product which didn’t wow me.

AVENE Soothing Eye Contour Cream Review

HRVATSKI

I love this cream.It comes in a tube, in a slightly smaller packaging than is typical for eye creams – it has only 10 ml and retails for around $15.

Avene Soothing Eye Contour cream is a basic scentless eye-contour moisturizer. It doesn’t give exaggerated claims about removing wrinkles or firming under-eye area. Its only promise is to moisturize and it excells in it.

The texture is very light, but moisturizing. It sinks in very quickly, so it won’t be a problem to use it underneath the concealer. It leaves my under-ey area completely moisturized.

Avene Soothing Eye-Contour cream is especially worthy to consider if you are just starting with under-eye cream.

Overall:

SUMMER Haul (Lancaster, Avene, L’Occitane)

Summer has come (finally!!). As I’ll finish my exams soon, I’ll be spending more and more time outside (riding bike, exercising or just purely enjoying being out on the fresh air). However, summer is the season when the sun is stronger than ever. Taking this into account I’ve decided to treat myself with some products which will help me prepare my skin for sun exposure.

Now, I’m aware that tanning is bad for skin. When I’m out of the house, I’m using at least SPF 30 on the body and SPF 50 on the face (if I’ll be staying on the sun for longer than half an hour; otherwise I use SPF 15).

My skin type is a bit tricky. I am very pale (NC15), with blue-grey eyes and dark blond hair, but I tan easily and rarely burn. Until two days ago, I’ve been wearing long sleeves (in spite of being 30 celsius), plus SPF 30 sunscreen and my neck and decollete still got tan (now they are NC20).

In order to prevent even bigger difference between the rest of the body and hands, neck and decollete (which looks really bad and ridiculous once you are in the bikini), I start with sunbathing. This means that in the middle of July, my skin has even colouring.

Sisley haul + Project 10 Pans Update #3

It’s been a long time since my last Project 10 Pans update. I have finally spent more product, so when I count in 2 extra spent products from update #1, 3 products form update #2 and eight products featured in today’s update, I feel like I deserve a reward.

SISLEY PARIS Sisleÿa Eye and Lip Contour Cream

I’ve received a ton of GWP tubes of this cream. Sisleÿa Eye and Lip Contour Cream (15ml $200) is good eye contour cream, but the quality doesn’t justify the price.

It has a thicker consistency which „melts“ slightly as it is warmed up. I usually warm it up between the fingers before applying it to the skin. It is not as moisturizing as I’d like. Because of the consistency, I expected it to be much richer and moisturizing. It is good for me now, but I have oily skin and I’m not sure this cream would be enough for someone with drier skin. I’ve tried using a larger amount of cream, but this didn’t make any difference in how ell moisturized the under-eye area was.

I also haven’t noticed any visible effect in diminishing the under-eye circles

A little goes a long way – a tiny 2ml GWP packaging lasts for almost a month.

The cream has a very light, barely perceptible scent, which doesn’t bother me. Sisleÿa Eye and Lip Contour Cream hasn’t caused any problems: it didn’t irritate my eyes, it didn’t cause milia or breakouts.

The full-size packaging is a jar (very unhygienic) so I prefer the GWP tube packaging.  

If it were priced more reasonably (not above $30) it would be my favourite moisturizer. But $200 is far too much for a basic moisturizer.
