Left eye (appears right): L'Oreal Advanced Revitalift, $16.59.
L'Oréal review: "This product didn't match up to its claims entirely. It didn't seem to have any effect on fine lines and rolled off when combined with makeup or concealer. Also, I have dry skin and this product doesn't seem to cater to that. On the positive side, it's a good price and the product felt good going on my skin. It was also light and absorbed quickly, though it wasn't emollient enough for me. The product had no obvious scent and the packaging with the double-step pump was appealing. Overall, I've used better products."
Fusion Beauty review: "This product is pricey, but it's very nice and it works. It seemed to produce immediately noticeable results. The product absorbed quickly and combined well with makeup. I'd definitely recommend this to a friend, but I'd need to combine it with a night cream or something more for dry skin."
Results: "After two weeks of using the Fusion Beauty Eye Lift, my eye looked much better, with diminished fine lines. I didn't notice any big changes after five weeks of using the L'Oréal, although I seem to have a darker circle under that eye area than I had before."
