AMW Reviews: L'Oreal White Perfect Micro-Vibration 3-in-1 Eye Brightener

Happy Thursday AMW Friends!  Today, I will be reviewing another eye cream!  YES!  I believe a lot of you are suffering from undereye darkness and puffiness and that explains why I get tons of emails asking me for a good eye product!

Here's the deal about skincare products especially eye creams.  You have to keep in mind that we are all different in many ways and certain products could be holy grail material for me but a "Match Made from Hell" for you!  Please keep in mind to always be in-the-know of the ingredients you're allergic to (if there's any) and get to know what your major eye issues are.

As for me, it's puffiness and darkness under the eyes!

I have tried L'Oreal Dermo Expertise White Expert Micro-Vibration a couple of months ago and since I've been testing out different eye creams, I've used almost half of the tube and give the rest to my sister for testing!  My sister, by the way, is an expert eye cream users, she can immediately tell if an eye cream works for her or not as she gets allergic reactions to those that doesn't match her!  

Are you as excited to read the results? 


L'Oreal says ---
Around your eyes, the skin is so fine it shows any  unevenness:  the slowdown in blood circulating under your eyes can turn into dark shadowy circles and excessive melanin production can saturate cells with dark pigments which leads to spots.  Furthermore, water easily accumulates causing puffiness.  Eye contour looks dull and uneven.


AMW says ---
Pros
  • Unique product making it more fun to apply eye cream day and night.
  • Texture of the eye care is light and gets easily absorbed into the eye area.
  • No fragrance.
  • Moisturizes the eye area.
  • After 2 months of usage, I can see puffiness under the eyes have lessened.
  • The look of fine lines aren't as distinct due to its moisturizing properties.
  • The micro-vibration factor makes eye cream application more relaxing than ever.
Cons
  • Dark circles didn't completely disappear or I didn't see any difference in terms of undereye darkness.
  • Cannot be used by people with sensitive eyes, sinus infections and migraines.  
  • Battery operated, if you are one of those unlucky ones, you need to change batteries even before using up the product.
  • I know some people could get allergies with the ingredients. I know some who are sensitive to whitening products. (So please read ingredients list carefully!)
Overall
Nice texture, moisturizing, may lighten other people's undereye darkness for longer usage.

Tips
  • Always keep in mind to turn the switch off after every use to save battery.
  • Do not use this near water.
  • People who have undergone surgery shouldn't be using such product.  
  • Do a patch test prior to applying the product on the eye area if you have sensitivity to certain ingredients.
  • If signs of irritations occur, stop usage immediately.
  • Wipe the "metal tip" with cotton and alcohol every now and then.
  • Press the 'massager' gently onto the pressure points and do not overuse.
  • You can use the massager with other eye creams.
Will I repurchase?
Personally speaking, I have eye creams that works well for me so I can give this a skip.  Will I recommend this?  Yes!  My sister actually repurchased this after trying this.
 
To whom do I recommend this to?
Start-up eye cream users who want to apply eye creams consistently on a nightly basis.  Having a tool that's "hi-tech" and unique will make eye cream application more fun!

This product will also work for people who have random days of puffy eyes and darkness.  If you were born with dark and puffy eyes, this product may not work for you!

Where to purchase and how much?
Available locally in leading stores nationwide for Php695.00 (approx $l6.00)

Keep the box and instruction manual inside
 just in case you need help on how to change batteries.  
The box has printed manufactured date.

 Clear instructions on how to use the product.
 

Sealed with sticker for freshness.

Numbers 1 and 2 clearly visible.

#1 Intense brightening and anti-dark circle eye care 
Said to be enriched with brightening complex to help reduce the darkening around the eye area.  


#2 Anti-puffiness micro-vibration tool
130 micro-vibrations per second is said to reduce the excess liquid under the eyes 
thus helps lessen eye puffiness.

#1 Eye Cream application
I like to apply 3 dots of the eye care around the 3 major points under the eyes.  
I gently spread the product with my clean fingers evenly.

#2 Micro-Vibration Tool
As soon as the tool has been switched on, I hold the massager like a pen and applied gentle pressure on each pressure points starting at the center (as shown on diagram).
 

  I spend around 2-3 seconds on each pressure points.  A total of around 10 seconds on each eye.  Please keep in mind that this could be addicting but try not to exceed the preferred time frame.

Have you seen this unique product at L'Oreal counters in your country?
Would you use a massager around the eye area?

I am usually wary of using any vibrating tool around the eye area as I know how sensitive this area could get.  As for the L'Oreal Micro-Vibration, I don't mind using it as I can easily control the pressure and time frame and so far, I like using it even with my own eye cream!  As for my sister, she texted me and told me she likes this and have repurchased!
