L'Oreal Collagen Micro-Pulse Eye

Since I'm an agent for BzzAgent, they sent me L'oreal Collagen Micro-Pulse Eye to try and review. It's been about a month since I received this and thought it's about time I review it.

I received L'oreal Collagen Micro-Pulse Eye and a booklet/pamphlet from BzzAgent. They usually send coupons but this time around I received none. It's all good since I got to try this out. Plus they got a great model, Linda Evangelista, to advertise. Who doesn't want to look that good at her age!!!
Product Review: L'oreal Collagen Micro-Pulse Eye

Where to purchase:ULTA, drugstores, mass merchandiser, and online at

Description from the package: L'oreal Paris introduces the first Total Eye Correction System with a potent formula + Micro-Pulse massager inspired by professional medical techniques. This unique eye cream is enriched with Erasyl to help diminish dark circles, Collagen to help smooth away wrinkles, and combined with a Micro-Pulse massager to minimize eye puffiness. Eyes are left visibly brighter, smoother, and wide-awake.

Thoughts: I was really excited to try this out since I have so much wrinkles below my eyes! When it comes to dark circles, I've been blessed. I need to be blessed in some ways since I have so much wrinkles and freckles. It makes up for that. When I first received the product, it looked really complicated. There's so many opening and a button. I'm just a simple person.
The "1" tells you to apply the cream on your eyes. You squeeze a little bit onto your ring finger and pat it onto your eyes.
The "2" is where you use the pulse massager on your eyes.
It has a button for the pulse massager to work. I'll tell you one thing. I don't know if I got a bad one or all of them does this. Whenever I push it up to start the pulse massager, it falls back down. Sometimes I have to hold it up to use it *sigh*. I just hope I got a bad one.
The side of the box tells you how to use the eye cream. Step 1 is really easy; you just pat it onto your eyes. Step 2 isn't bad either. I thought Step 3 was kind of harsh on the eyes. The pulse massager drags your sensitive skin up and down which I would think wouldn't help the eyes. That's my opinion.

The main reason why I was excited about this eye cream is that it has collagen. We all know that's suppose to be really good for you. Japanese people drink collagen believing it is good for the skin and health (I'm not Japanese by the way). Now that's it's been a month, I haven't noticed any good changes on my eyes.

Both before and after, I notice wrinkles in the inner corners *sigh*. Please ignore my ugly skin.

* Simple idea.
* It has collagen.

* Pulse massager pulls on the skin.
* Button doesn't work too well.
* Haven't noticed any changes.

Would repurchase: No, unless I see improvements at the end of using this.

awww this product sounded so promising! sucks it didn't work out, I have fine lines under my eyes too and I'm still in search for a good eye cream/treatment

Aww that sucks that you haven't seen any improvment! I'm always skeptical when it comes to those "breaktrough" products. The pulse massager looked interesting, but since you say it pulls the skin... x_x

Are you participating in the Burt's Bees campaign on BzzAgent? (=

Nice honest review. I tot ur eyes actually looked less puffy :)

I bought this on a whim and agree that it kinda does nothing. The only things positive are that the massager can be pretty relaxing (for me anyways) and that it doesn't cause any milia.

You're lucky you got it for free!
