Editor's Pick: La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Eye Cream Review
Even when we follow our strict skin care routines down to a T, our complexions can still act up and suffer from unexplained dryness, puffiness, or irritation. One of the most common areas that this can occur is around the eye contour. The skin around our peepers is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face, and as such can be somewhat unpredictable.
To help keep your eye contour looking and feeling its best, reach for a well-formulated eye cream like La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Ultra Eye Cream. We received a complimentary sample for us to review; read on for everything you need to know about Toleriane Ultra Eye Cream in our full product review below!
LA ROCHE-POSAY TOLERIANE ULTRA EYE CREAM REVIEW
If you have ultra-sensitive and dry under-eyes, then the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Eye Cream should be added to your skin care roster. This ultra-soothing eye moisturizer is enriched with the brand’s Thermal Spring Water and a soothing complex of Neurosensine and Niacinamide. What’s more, it’s suitable for skin that is sensitive to certain ingredients such as parabens, fragrance, and drying alcohol, as well as contact lens wearers.
Like many others, my under-eye skin is pretty sensitive, especially during allergy season. Finding an eye cream that’s delicate and gentle enough for my sensitive skin and that won’t irritate the area is a struggle, but having vetted La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane products on my skin in the past—check out my review of Toleriane Ultra Night Cream here—I was eager to give Ultra Eye Cream a try. It launched recently and claims to comfort skin and hydrate the delicate eye area. Does it work? Read on to find out!
Before I get into the nitty-gritty of this product, I really find a need to highlight this eye cream’s unique packaging. Similar to Toleriane Ultra Night Cream, the air-tight packaging of this bottle allows the product to stay fresh and guarded from any contamination. The anti-contamination, anti-oxidation, and anti-waste power of this bottle will let you pump out product without worrying about any outside factors getting into the mix, leaving you with one less thing to worry about.
This eye cream doesn’t have a noticeable smell to it at all. If you’re a fan of fragrant skin care products, this eye cream may not be your favorite. I don’t mind scent body lotions or butters, but I personally prefer my eye cream to be odorless as it is applied so close to my nostrils.
Some eye creams that I’ve used in the past are very thick and hard to apply. This can leave me tugging at my eye contour just to blend the formula, which is not ideal. Thankfully, this eye cream boasts a light, water-like texture that seeps into the skin easily. Within a few moments, the formula dissipated into my skin and left behind no uncomfortable residue.
Once I applied this lightweight cream onto my under-eyes, I immediately noticed a cooling sensation. My under-eye skin felt hydrated and comfortable right off the bat.
After applying this product every day in the morning and evening for two weeks, I noticed a significant difference in the dryness under my eyes. Thanks to the additional moisture, the lines and creases under my eyes appeared less obvious and more plumped as a result.
HOW TO USE LA ROCHE-POSAY TOLERIANE ULTRA EYE CREAM
- Apply a small amount of product onto the tip of your ring finger.
- Delicately dab around the eye area and eyelids.
- Apply gentle pressure from the inside of the eye outwards.
- Finish by applying light pressure over the whole eye.
