Lierac Diopti Eye Care Line

Time to talk eye creams and really good ones at that. French beauty brand Lierac is bringing out not 1 but 5 targeted new Diopti eye treatments to stores next month.

I had the chance to get advance samples of all 5 , and I used mine each night for 5 weeks to get a really good idea of it.

I also enlisted 2 other guest testers to help with some of the others.

I tested the Diopti Creme for anti wrinkle. In all honesty this is one of the best I have used. I am extremely fussy about eye creams despite not having lots of issues. I have a few very fine lines and I need moisture, thats it. After a few weeks of use, I noticed my undereye area was super smooth. It didn't even dawn on me at first it might be the eye cream, but I realized that was the only change I had made. I also saw a softening of the fine lines. Really. No they aren't gone, no cream takes them away totally,but they were less noticeable. Plenty of moisture here also but it's not heavy.

The Mom tested Diopti Lisse for firming. She used hers for weeks also. She told me it was "gold". She felt her eye area looked much better , and toned. This one also can act as an undermakeup base.

Lastly dear friend The Movie Mommy tried Diopti Cerne for dark circles. She is a full time working mom with 2 toddlers and 1 husband. She needs anything she can get to not look like what she calls "dead mommy". She also has rosacea and super sensitive skin. She too was very happy. The first treatment she's been able to use that didn't irritate her skin at all. Circles were only reduced a little, but overall she felt moisturized and brighter. She is just beginning to dip her toes into the skincare world and so far everything has made her skin flare up.

I didn't know until the Movie Mommys comment, but Lierac's eye creams are formulated for even the most sensitive skin and high tolerance.

Other highlights are a totally recyclable aluminum tube and they have an opthalmic type applicator tip to keep most contaminants out. They can each be used on their own or combined for your own recipe.

The other two treatments are : Diopti Calm- to sooth, cool and decongest the eyes. Can be used as an eye mask. This one does have witch hazel in it, so it's not going to moisturzing, but more refreshing and tightening. Diopti Gel is for puffiness.

The line will be available at CVS stores that carry Lierac and online at

Price is $ 34.00 each

When choosing an eye cream, always look for the ingredients of the product. It might have some harsh ingredient that can irritate your skin. To avoid this scenarios, skin testing can be done or you can consult a dermatologist.
