I already mentioned my love of the scientific method once before, so I hope I didn’t scare you away with that post… because I did another experiment using L’Oreal Revitalift Complete Eye Cream only under ONE of my eyes for a month and took pictures to document the transformation! While not very drastic, there was significant improvement in the appearance of fine lines, which were hard to photograph.
You may be asking yourself, why Revitalift? Well, since I was previously a non-eye cream wearing 20-something, I asked my best gay friend from high school what he used. He has similar skin to mine, oily & acne prone, and has tried a bunch of different products. Since he’s in residency, I knew he’d be using something that was reasonably priced due to his mountain of student load debt!
I applied the eye cream once a day under my right eye (left one in the pictures) and where I have slight crow’s feet when I smile! The most dramatic change I noticed when not smiling, see below.
Sadly, there was only slight improvement to my crow’s feet when smiling. I actually think that the eye cream, which plumps the skin made it worse! See the pictures, below.
I would like to note that the second pictures, about two weeks into the experiment were taken when my allergies were flaring, so my eyes were a bit more swollen & puffy than normal. BUT, it does look like the cream did help with that!
