La Vie Celeste Restorative Rose Hydrosol Eye Cream

La Vie Celeste Restorative Rose Hydrosol Eye Cream

Size: 0.5 oz (15 ml)

La Vie Celeste Restorative Rose Hydrosol Eye Cream is a gentle, silky cream that brightens and refines eyes. It contains the powerful antioxidant R-lipoic acid as well as the potent peptide ChroNoline to smooth lines and wrinkles. This hydrating eye cream also contains bearberry and bilberry extract to reduce dark circles and under-eye puffiness for eyes that look refreshed, luminous and youthful.

TIA Review by Marta:
I have been using La Vie Celeste’s Restorative Rose Hydrosol Eye Cream with R-Lipoic Acid for a month and it is an excellent product in the mid-price range. Its well chosen ingredients do an excellent job at firming and hydrating.

The key ingredient is R-lipoic acid, a chirally correct form of alpha lipoic acid. This “universal antioxidant” helps fight both future skin damage and repair damage done in the past by diminishing fine lines, giving skin a healthy glow, and boosting the levels and efficacy of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E. There is also research demonstrating that it can diminish scars. it helps fight inflammation and water retention by inhibiting the production of the pro-inflammatory chemical cytokine. For good reason, alpha lipoic acid is a signature ingredient of Perricone MD’s line, but now – with organic La Vie Celeste with which every ingredient counts - you don’t have to compromise with all those department store brand fillers.

The mostly plant based formula in LVC’s eye cream includes one of my favorite botanicals, bearberry, a source of arbutin and, therefore, a skin brightener. And there are plenty of antioixdants in the forms of bilberry, pomegranate and green tea. The marine extract spirulina brings rare essential lipids, vitamin B12 and minerals. Spirulina is one of the best known sources of gamma linolenic acid (omega 6) after human milk.

An unusual and exotic ingredient is gardenia tahitensis. (or taitensis), which has historically held an important place in Polynesian medicine. It may have anti-inflammatory properties, but there has been little research on this plant so far. In cosmetics it is mixed with coconut oil to produce a skin moisturizer and it is also a highly effectiveantibacterial (perhaps it will come into its own one day as a natural preservative).

After a month of using this cream, I feel as if it is gently compatible with my delicate eye area. My skin looks clear and refreshed and above all hydrated. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an eye cream to help with dry, crepey issues.

    Essentially my one issue with this eye cream is I wish it wasn't in a pot! It's messy and I always feel like I'm getting too much. It smells faintly of roses and is silky and hydrating but not at all heavy. I see an immediate brightening effect but haven't seen long term change (however I've only been using it about two months and could easily see this generous size lasting me a year). I sometimes have issues with eye creams stinging, feeling sticky, or causing milia but no issues with this one!

    I'm a little in two minds about whether this is a three or four-star product for me . I would give 3.5 stars if there's such an option! I like the creamy texture of the eye cream - it feels so luxurious and indeed it moisturizes my eyes fairly well - for most of the day anyway. It also seems to have reduced my dark circles somewhat. However, my biggest concern regarding my eyes are the annoying and frustratingly persistent fine lines, and unfortunately this eye cream doesn't seem to be able to help much with that. No eye cream has accomplished that yet though, I have to add.

    So overall, I think this is a nice eye cream which is a pleasure to use. I feel it'll be a good maintenance cream for folks with good eye-skin condition and want to maintain, and those with dark circles could give it a try too. But for me, I think I need to take up the hunt again for the elusive eye cream that can banish (or at least reduce) the fine lines around my eyes.

    I'm a new fan of this line! My skin reacts poorly to SO many products, but not these! I also have been using YBF Correct but have discovered noticeable improvement with La Vie Celeste eye cream. Thanks as always for the wonderful info!

    This is very hydrating, smells lovely, and overall helps keep my under-eye area looking and feeling refreshed and youthful. I cannot account for how it reduces wrinkles or diminishes circles because I combine it with other products. I have seen reductions in both, though, so I'm guessing it's helping. I have a small sample that has lasted me for more than a month, so a little goes a long way. I carry it with me and apply it mid-day to refresh my under-eye area. I will be buying the full-size; it's a really fantastic eye cream that I plan to keep as part of my regimen.

    Been using the eye cream on my chapped lips. All the lip balms I use I either unconsciously lick off or wipe because of feeling so waxy or heavy. So I decided to use this and give it a shot. My lips are much better – they’re healed..ok don’t want to sound like some TV evangelist lol. Try it.

    I am very impressed with this eye cream. I’m a dedicated ybf Correct user so I’m not easily impressed. I alternate and sometimes use together (after the correct has fully dried on the skin).
    The cream is lightweight, moisturizing, and brightening. It leaves my under eye area with a creamy matte finish that is not heavy like some eye creams.

    I second that, Joe! Regular lip balms never agreed with me, so I started applying a smidge of eye cream on my lips, which makes a huge difference. Highly recommend!

    OK another experiment: been using the eye cream on my chapped lips. All the lip balms I use I either unconsciously lick off or wipe because of feeling so waxy or heavy.

    I really like this brand and will try the day/night cream, cleanser, and toner next. I'd sure like to get my hands on the 20% glycolic mask. I love the 5% but my skin is not sensitive at all and I have used 15 - 20% glycolic products before with good results.

    I was fortunate enough to stumble upon La Vie Celeste at the Expo in Philly last weekend. What marvelous products. I was speaking with the gentleman there who claims to have been using the product for the past 7 months, he told me he was 56 but he looks 36 - while genetics plays a key factor in our aging, and we men do have a bit different characteristics to our skin, the line is suitable for both sexes. The eye cream absorbs quickly, better than many products I've used. My wife and I have been using the eye cream all week, I can see brightness again around her eyes already. I was given samples of the whole line, and since I'm in the biz, I was able to get the 20% Glycolic mask. Wonderful. Strong enough yet my skin calmed within 10 minutes. I highly recommend these products and will tell my clients. The owner/founder of the company was there, she's passionate and VERY upfront about her products- she makes no false claims, doesn't claim it's the Fountain of Youth; finally a company that is as real as it's product. Very refreshing to find.

    While the Dermo was a great moisturizer for my skin, I didn't feel like it abosrbed into my skin very well, so it didn't work well in the day under my makeup. It reminded me of the texture of sunscreen lotion which I don't care for, however I think it helped with keeping the wrinkles at bay. I'll have to see about ordering the SenZen. Thanks Marta!

    Hi Laura, I haven't the Peter Roth Thomas, but if you like a rich cream then I would go for the SenZen. I am curious to know how you got on with the Dermophysiologique. Is that fact that you are casting around for something else a clue?

  • Laura

    I just finished my Dermaphysiologic eye cream and am in the market for a new one. The top of my list was SenZen that you recommended in September. This one also looks promising. I'm 49, have the usual deepening lines so I definitely need the plumping and moisture. I like a fairly rich cream (but not too pasty nor runny). the other one I've been looking at is the Peter Thoms Roth which has lots of vitamins and anti-aging ingredients and a wonderful texture.
    Marta, which one would you recommend?

    This sounds like just what I need!! The only aging issues I have that really bother me (so far) are very, very
    extreme crepiness under the eyes.It is like I have no elasticity at all.
    It is hard to explain but when I put on a creme or foundation under my eyes, where ever my finger touches under my eye, that is where my skin stays. All bunched up and looking like
    a mess.
    I hope I can find a product that help.
    This makes me so self-conscious and has totally changed the way I feel about myself. I don't even want to wear make-up and get dressed up anymore because my eyes look so bad.
    No amount of makeup will cover crepiness as bad as mine.
    It is just like all the skin under my eyes goes to one place and stays there like a wrinkly mess.
    I am so sad.
    Don't know what to do.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    Tammy

    This line is looking more and more interesting with each product review -- I think the Eye Cream will be my first purchase as my dry, crepey issues are ever-present.

    Marta,
    I'm looking for something for puffy eyes- I wake up they're puffy then later they're baggy....suggestions? I'm thinking it should be a gel...maybe something I keep in the fridge?

    Thanks,
    Stephanie

    ps I am almost out of my Dermophisiologique eye cream and may replace it with this la vie celeste....

    La Vie Celeste is an exciting new addition to TIA's arsenal of excellent potions! Not one to embrace an organic brand just for that alone, I am thus quite impressed w the considered "army" of ingredients they delegate, particularly, in this eye cream.
