Youth Code Eye Cream Review
It seems like everyone is looking for that magic bullet when it comes to dark circles and puffy bags under the eyes. Striking a balance between a quick fix and safe ingredients seems to be a tough task for cosmetics developers, but L’Oreal claims to have it all with its Youth Code Eye Cream.
Part of the much larger , Youth Code Eye Cream is a twice-a-day applicator designed to reduce the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and puffy bags under the eyes. L’Oreal wants you to believe that its formula—which it claims spent 10 years in development—is the right one for you. We’ll take a look at some of the pros and cons to Youth Code Eye Cream and leave you to decide if it’s a product fit for you.
There’s a reason L’Oreal has spent so many years atop the cosmetics industry, and its dominance shows through with Youth Code Eye Cream. The company was able to invest in 10 years of scientific research to come up with a formula using ingredients that are known to work: glycerol (a compound used in soap that attracts moisture), cyclohexasiloxane (another moisturizer that creates a protective barrier on the skin), squalene (an organic compound with a smooth texture), and algae extract (a byproduct of seaweed that restores pigmentation to the skin).
And for the most part, Youth Code Eye Cream’s blend seems to work. Customer reviews indicate that their discoloration and puffy bags were eliminated almost instantly after using Youth Code Eye Cream in the mornings.
L’Oreal is also on the lower end of the market when it comes to price—one tube of Youth Code Eye Cream is priced at $24.99, though other deals online can get you a tube for up to 20 percent less. Compared to other eye creams, we think that’s a pretty decent bargain.
Youth Code Eye Cream is not without its flaws, however. The biggest problem with this L’Oreal product seems to be its lasting benefits. Customers who have used Youth Code for an extended period of time report that discoloration does not improve and deeper-set wrinkles are difficult to erase. The cream appears to only be a “quick fix” to the problem of puffy eyes or fine lines.
Also, L’Oreal has a strict no returns policy for customers who have opened the product. If you take a chance on Youth Code Eye Cream and then decide it’s not for you, you have no monetary recourse.
And for those of you with allergies or a hyper reaction to fragrance, Youth Code Eye Cream may not be for you. Though L’Oreal reports that the cream does not have a fragrance, some users indicated that they experienced itchy or watery eyes after using the cream.
For what it does, we think L’Oreal Youth Code Eye Cream is a good bet. The product uses safe, well-tested ingredients and delivers on its promise to dramatically reduce the appearance of eye-bags and dark circles. It’s also light and doesn’t leave a greasy residue on the skin.
Caution to those picky shoppers and allergy-prone individuals, however. L’Oreal’s product may not be for you.
While the product is not perfect, we believe the relatively low price makes Youth Code Eye Cream a pretty decent low-stakes bet.
