Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl

Olay Regenerist Eye SwirlHi there! I’ve been using this Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl for about four weeks – and now’s the time to share my findings. So let’s start!

This eye cream glides on smoothly and it hydrates my under-eye area nicely.

I can see that it makes lines appear less pronounced, but this effect is only temporary. When I cleanse my face and don’t reapply the cream, I can’t see any difference between now and four weeks ago.

One thing that annoys me is that this eye cream is too rich. It’s not horrible, but it’s just enough to render it unsuitable for wear under make-up. Well, under my make-up, that is.

I use Max Factor’s Pan Stik which doesn’t work with this eye cream. There may not be any problems at all with other foundations, but I’m not changing my (holy grail!) foundation for a non-
essential eye product.

This means that I can only wear this eye cream when I’m not wearing make-up, which is overnight and on the odd day when I’m not leaving the house.

I know you wonder whether this eye cream actually helps with dark circles or not. And my answer is that it helps to a certain extent – whilst the cream is on. The eye cream contains shimmer particles which appear to reflect light; this makes dark circles disappear if you look at your eyes from the right angle.

I’m not sure whether to recommend this product or not. I’ll definitely use it up because it hydrates the skin under my eyes nicely, but I don’t think that I would repurchase this eye cream because I can’t use it under my make-up. I’ll stick to my favourite eye gel!

I know that this product received mixed reviews when it was first launched and I remember a few negative reviews from people who said that this cream would look like under-eye chalk (?) or that it would leave them with glittery skin around their eyes. However, I don’t believe that these reviews are accurate descriptions of this eye cream. And – in all honesty – I am still wondering how much product these people used!

If you would like to try this Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl, it’s £29.99 for 15 ml. I bought mine for half price a while ago, so you should check prices online before buying.

  1. I’ve had mixed feelings as well! I’ve been using it awhile now and I’ve noticed no change in my dark circles. But I have very dry underwear so this does wonders to correct that. I got mine in a target beauty box but I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing either 😔

    • I love Olay’s anti wrinkle eye gel (purple packaging) which has worked wonders for me. As soon as the Luminous stuff is finished, I’m going right back to the eye gel.

      My favourite facial moisturiser is the regular Olay complete care day lotion (yellow packaging). I love it. If you look for an active anto-ageing product, try the anti-wrinkle day lotion (purple packaging).

      There’s always a half price offer somewhere, so you shouldn’t pay more than £5 per product. I think Superdrug does a half price deal at the moment.xx
