Guerlain Super Aqua Eye Serum
Advantages: Leaves the skin looking softer, smoother and more plump
Disadvantages: The price
The Super Aqua Eye Serum has been created by Guerlain and it is a moisturising serum for the eye area. It promises to plump, volumise and smooth out the skin around the eye using natural ingredients. As well as this, it promises to get rid of dark circles, reduce puffiness and banish fine lines. The results are said to be long lasting rather than a quick fix so I could hardly leave this little beauty on the shelf.
How does it work? The product contains fragments of Hyaluronic Acid which is able to retain around 1,000 its own volume in water. As the molecules swell, they plump up the skin, reducing fine lines and leaving it looking smoother and younger.
How do you use the product?
The product can be used morning and night on skin that has been cleansed. One pump of the product is enough for one eye. The product needs to be dispensed onto your finger and patted in to the skin beneath, above and to the outside of the eye. It must be patted in and not rubbed as the skin there is very delicate and this can cause wrinkles. Once it has been absorbed, you can apply your moisturiser and make up as usual.
Packaging and Price
The packaging of this product is very pretty and expensive looking. The bottle is a blue glass jar and it is partly see through so you can actually see the outline of the serum inside. The product has a metallic pump dispenser and this is protected by a plastic lid. There is some golden writing on the bottle.
This product is by no means cheap but that's what you would expect from a Guerlain creation. I got mine from John Lewis and it set me back around £50 for 15ml. This is a lot of money for a small amount but as I am using it on the small eye area instead of the whole face, I can't see it running it out too quickly.
Appearance and Aroma
The product doesn't look like the usual clear gel that you would expect from a serum. It has a pure milky white colour and more of a liquid consistency that a gel. It is fairly runny so you need to work quite quickly with the product so that none goes to waste. The smell is faint but there is a floral aroma that is pleasant and not strong enough to put anyone off this product.
The product is easy to use and one pump is enough for one eye. The liquid is quite runny but it's simple enough to pat it into the skin. On the skin, it feels light but rich at the time which is a weird sensation.
As long as you don't use too much, it is comfortable on the skin and not greasy at all. It doesn't leave a sheen behind so once it has been absorbed, no one would see that you are using the product. It doesn't sting or irritate my sensitive eye area so the serum must be very gentle.
The product is very moisturising and leaves my skin feeling lovely, soft and silky. I don't think it does much for dark circle but it does plump up the skin which means that fine lines look less obvious and my skin looks a little firmer. Because of this I also think it acts as quite a good primer before applying my make up.
It stops my skin from feeling dry and the area looks healthy and moisturised for hours. It hasn't caused any blemishes or irritations on my sensitive skin. I have found the results to be immediate but only long lasting if you continue to use the actual product.
All in all, this is a really good product but not one that I'll remain faithful to because of the price. It delivers on nearly all of its promises and I will continue to use the product daily but once it has run out, I will probably have to find a cheaper replacement until I win the lottery.
Summary: An expensive but effective eye serum which helps to make the eye area look healthier and plumper
