Okoko Cosmétiques L’Élixir D’Or Youthful Eye Serum Review & TipsBy Natalia Lavaggi
I’m very excited about the official launch of the Okoko L’Élixir D'or Eye Serum! I have had the privilege of using the serum prior to the launch for a few weeks and have experienced great results. The formulation of this product was created to enhance the youthful appearance of your eyes by minimizing the look of puffiness, dark circles and fine line and wrinkles while providing a balance of hydration and light moisturization for this delicate area. The name translates to Gold Elixir because of its gorgeous golden color. It is a product that has been long awaited by many of our customers and I can’t wait for our fans to experience it for themselves.
My L’Élixir D’Or Youthful Eye Serum Experience
Staying true to the Okoko Cosmétiques commitment to innovation, results and sophistication, this product delivered all the above in efficacy, experience and easy application. I used this product for about 6 weeks now and it has been by far one of my favourite eye serums I’ve ever used. I enjoyed the easy application of it as it comes in a roller that dispenses just the right amount of product as a little bit goes a long way. The light and silky texture glides on effortlessly and leaves my eye contour feeling hydrated and less puffy within a few minutes of using it. The scent is delicate and refreshing to the senses. It leaves a beautiful smooth and soft feeling to my skin which I really enjoy.
I use mineral makeup on a daily basis and L’Élixir D'or acts a great eye primer and hydrator prior to concealer application and minimizes the creasing throughout the day which is very difficult to achieve as at 35 years old the skin around my eyes had become more laxed. This serum has helped in this specific area of concern for me and I’m thrilled about it! I began using the serum right in the thick of the cold winter season which is when my skin suffers the most with more dryness and dark circles, so I could really see the difference L’Élixir D’Or made for me this year!
After 6 weeks of use, I noticed the following improvements:
- Reduced dryness and increased moisture around the eyes
- Minimized appearance of fine lines
- Minimized the appearance of puffiness under my eyes
- Improvement in elasticity and firmness around my eye contour
- Enhanced the application of my makeup
What makes this serum work so well?
Okoko Cosmétiques has proven yet again that with dedicated R&D and innovative formulation, natural products do work! L’Élixir D'or has two very unique ingredients that I feel provides exceptional results. The first one is Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract. Quinoa seed is known to reduce the look of under-eye bags and puffiness for a more refreshed and youthful appearance. The key to the efficacy of this unique ingredient is the dual acting natural peptides which translates to the reduced appearance of puffiness and bags under the eyes.
The second key ingredient is derived from an Ayurvedic tree called Terminalia Arjuna. Studies have shown that this botanical active also reduces the look of dark circles, redness and puffiness. It also increases micro-circulation and helps to restore the firmness and elasticity of the skin around the eye contour area. It was recognized as the best active ingredient of 2019 at a Global Beauty conference among many leading experts for its performance!Natalia's Personal Tips:
- Use both morning and evening on cleansed skin and gently tap into the skin after rolling it on
- Apply a minimal amount as this is a concentrated formula, a little goes a long way
- Place it in the fridge for an enhanced cooling effect on your eyes in the morning which enhances the de puffing effect
- Use it below your concealer and makeup product to smooth and hydrate your skin like a primer
- Can be used in combination with Les 16 Précieux or Sublime Balm for added nourishment and moisture for dry/mature skin.
If you have mature skin, I highly suggested to combine L’Élixir D’or to L’Élixir de Pureté, Prestige and Les 16 Précieux for a well targeted routine that would deliver amazing results.
