La Mer The Eye Concentrate Review

Lately, I have fallen in love with La Mer’s The Eye Concentrate, an eye cream that contains a combo of precious sea ingredients and magnetic energies of minerals to reduce the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness and keep the eye area in a calm, more balanced state.

The Eye Concentrate comes in a small 0.5 oz jar with a silver tip applicator. All you need is a tiny dab under the eyes so a jar will last you quite a while.

The texture is rich, creamy and just divine. It moisturizes very well but sinks into the skin right away without feeling greasy. Whenever I put this on, my eye area feels hydrated and soothed while being completely milia and puff-free. I can also apply makeup right after and my foundation and concealer always goes on so smoothly without caking or sliding off .

The best part is how effective it is in keeping the eye area toned and fighting undereye circles. I saw an improvement in just a few weeks and it has completely saved my eyes after my two hardcore partying trips in Vegas.

I will definitely repurchase when my sample runs out. Thanks La Mer for making such a great product!

  1. I would love to try La Mer products sometime, too bad they are always out of my budget range. This eye cream sounds wonderful though.

  2. I’ve heard endless good things about La Mer products, but I don’t think I will be able to afford anything from that line anytime soon. It’s interesting that this helps with dark circles too though, certainly sounds like a miracle worker.

  3. how does this compare to other eye creams? i have the WORST undereye circles. i think its due to me wearing contact lenses at such a young age. i have to pull at my eyes to put them in and take them out each day. =(

  4. can you suggest a cheaper alternative for (south) asian (olive) NC30 skin? most suggest seem to make the purple of the dark circles more apparent and moisturize, instead of getting ride of them :( what can you recommend?

  5. Ladies, no eye cream can get rid of circles completely but the La Mer definitely helped mine fade a bit and prevented them from getting worse.

    Besides using a good eye cream, you will also need to look into the causes of your undereye circles, which can include poor blood circulation, hyperpigmentation, lack of sleep, allergies, thin skin around the eye area and even genes.
