L'occitane Eye Care & Mask Duo Brightening Correction

Eyes are the absolute beauty to our soul. They connect us to everything, they reveal everything but sometimes it all depends which perspective they touch us deep down through our thoughts and mind. My eyes on the other hand always reveal my tiredness and I of course have accepted the reality. I don’t sleep well and I sometimes over-strain my eyes until they scream for nourishment to be cared for. Nevertheless, I have never neglected the daily routine of diligently applying eye cream (L'oreal Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Eye Cream & Body Shop Vitamin C Duo) but I also realise my windows to my soul should be pampered at least once a week with an eye mask (La Colline Cellular Eye Mask). 

Basically, I would like to reduce my dark circles, avoid fine lines and keep my eyes healthy and beautiful. Thus, while I was on the lookout for a quality eye mask, at the suggestion of a friend, I purchased L'occitane Eye Care & Mask Duo Brightening Correction for the first time ever. Even the brand by itself is a first time try; in fact, it took me a while to get it right with pronouncing the name. 

Product Description
This triple-action formula works both as a daily eye cream and an eye-contour mask for visible results. First, the eye area is smoothed: skin looks firmer and the appearance of wrinkles is greatly reduced. Second, an even and luminous eye area emerges: the eye contour seems brightened with Bellis Perennis extract. Third, a fresh and rested look is achieved: puffiness and dark circles due to age, stress and fatigue appear minimized through the action of caffeine. This correction eye treatment contains extract from the Immortelle flower, which never fades, even after it has been picked. Organic Immortelle is rich in active molecules with unique anti-ageing results. Its organic essential oil is rich in active molecules with unique anti-ageing properties. Over ten years ago, L’OCCITANE revealed and patented the exceptional anti-ageing powers of Corsican immortelle – the only variety that contains an incredibly high concentration of active ingredients.
Okay, so it was like this when I was at their store- this eye mask was recommended, I didn’t read the product information, I happily paid and when I returned home, I felt let down because I wasn’t informed it is a dual purpose eye product. Actually, I would consider it more as a daily eye cream when in actual fact I clearly mentioned I wanted a weekly eye mask. Wonder what when wrong where, certainly I am disappointed. Anyway, I decided.
I apply a pea size of this almost opaque and creamy gel around my eye contour and then as always for my weekly home facial, a sheet mask for my face.  After removing the face mask (Active Double Action Mask, Garnier Light Lightening Peel Off Mask & Skinfood Black Sugar Mask) and before wiping off this eye mask, I use the metal applicator to massage my eye area.
This duo brightening correction feels lovely and cool on application, it does absorb quickly, it does not feel sticky or heavy, and does not irritate the skin around my eyes. It is also buildable and even if you apply a thicker layer, your eyes are still safe. My eye area certainly appeared well rested, nourished and hydrated. However, sadly, it did nothing to brighten neither reduce my dark circles. Honestly, it didn’t. I actually regretted purchasing this eye duo (RM157.32) because firstly, as said earlier, the promoter should have understood I specifically wanted an eye mask. Secondly, after using it for 2 months once a week, it didn’t win my heart as a great product. This eye care duo is definitely out of my list. Sorry to say, not even for daily use. Perhaps the organic essential oil in it should be raved about. 

On another note, I also purchased their UV Shield SPF 50 and Whitening Moisturiser Cream. So far so good after using them for a week but I think it is rather early to comment, so, I shall reserve my review for another at least 3 weeks.
