L’Oreal Wrinkle Decrease Collagen Eye Filler

L’Oreal Wrinkle Decrease Collagen Eye Filler is one of my holy grail products that I make sure never to run out of. I’ve been using it for years, ever since it first came out.

LOreal Wrinkle Decrease Collagen Eye Filler

I like to have a few tubes of this LOreal eye cream stashed away at all times.....

I had a panic when L’Oreal brought out their under eye roller. For a few months all I could find in my local stores was this brand new product.

The L’Oreal collagen micro vibration eye cream was everywhere and my holy grail product was no where to be found.

I almost tried the eye roller vibration thingy (it may even have been great) but I still had my stash of original eye cream and luckily (and perhaps due to popular demand) L’Oreal collagen eye filler returned to the shelves!

Now and again, also to my horror, L’Oreal add an ingredient and the packaging sports a “New” label (as it does at the moment) and my heart sinks wondering what they have done to mess up the formula.

The problem is that I have sensitive eyes so there are very few eye creams that I can stand and the ones I don’t seem to be allergic to in other brands seem to have no effect whatsoever on my eye area.

Ingredients List : Oh My!
How on earth I’m not allergic to this lot is anyone’s guess. If you need to know exact ingredients yourself then check out the exact box you’re buying before you use the cream as formulas change over time

  • Water
  • Cyclohexasiloxane
  • Alcohol Denatured
  • Glycerin
  • Dimethicone
  • Silica
  • Stearyl Dimethicone
  • Titanium Dioxide
  • Magnesium Sulfate
  • Methylsilanol (Silicate Crosspolymer)
  • Cetyl PEG/PPG 10/1 Dimethicone
  • Mica Atelocollagen
  • Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E)
  • Caffeine
  • Tristearin
  • Dimethiconol
  • Polyglyceryl 4 Isostearate
  • Acetylated Glycol Stearate
  • Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate
  • Silica Dimethyl Silylate
  • Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate
  • Phenoxyethanol

Whatever L’Oreal put in this under eye cream seems to be OK though and that is even more weird as it has some pretty powerful sounding ingredients in it including the darling of the dermatologists Hyaluronic acid and collagen in the form of “biospheres”. (Hubbie smirks when he reads terms like “biospheres” designed to blind us cosmetic purchasers with science. I blame his Genetics Phd and I don’t let it put me off a good product LOL).

Anyway, this little miracle product is supposed to reduce crow’s feet (literally be a wrinkle filler) and brighten dark circles. It has an illuminating ingredient with light reflecting particles which work on the circles though I have to say I don’t rely on it for that. (I have another favorite for disguising too many late nights or early mornings but I’ll go into that another time).

It’s probably the collagen biospheres (whether biospheres is a real word or not) and hyaluronic acid in this L’Oreal eye cream that help with the lines. Apparently the biospheres inflate up to 9 times their volume to plump up the skin around your wrinkles and the hyaluronic acid locks water into the skin.

Whatever is doing it, I just know that ever since I used this collagen filler cream morning and evening I haven’t worried about the crow’s feet that were starting to develop. I’ve just turned 50 so a few lines can be forgiven but I think my eyes look younger than they did years ago.

The skin around my eyes feels good too when I put this on – soft and smooth and never uncomfortably dry even in winter despite central heating and harsh weather taking their toll. You are only supposed to use it on crows feet and under the eyes (the problem areas) but I use it over the whole of my eyelid, on the outer corner and below the eye as a result of how good it feels.

The packaging says the cream is an ideal base to apply makeup. I find that is true if you want color to be blended in (as in the case of concealer under the eyes) but I don’t think it works on the lids so well as a proper eye makeup primer. Use a drop of foundation or a dusting of powder over the eye cream if you use it there. I find eye shadow and liner tends to wear off too quickly especially if I’m trying to get ready quickly and make up my eyes immediately after applying the cream.

What I do like

  • it works!
  • fewer lines
  • softer moisturized skin around the eyes
  • no tears formula, non-perfumed too
  • easy application of under eye concealer

What I don’t like

The price! This cream comes in a tiny tube that costs an annoying amount of money from my budget every time I shell out for it. Last time I bought some it cost about $18 on special in my local drugstore in the UK though I think it’s cheaper in the US (I must stock up next time I go) It’s still worth every penny though and there’s no way I’d buy a cheaper cream just to save a few pennies at the cost of performance.

LOreal Collagen Eye Filler

Still lots more to go....

Also, having said it’s expensive, the tiny tube lasts longer than you think as you need very little to do a whole eye. My current tube has been on the go for weeks.

You can see that it looks like it’s nearly finished, but from past experience, it will probably last weeks longer so I can’t really complain.

Also once you can’t squeeze any more out, you can snip open the tube and get quite a bit more out.

Where to Buy

You can buy L’Oreal Collagen Filler in drugstores everywhere and also online from Amazon in the US (or here in the UK).

    Hi, just read your article about loreal collagen filler eye (I know its a few years old now!)

    I’m gutted that this product has been discontinued, I loved it. On the off chance I thought I’d email you seeing as you are also a fan, have you found an alternative to this eye cream?

    Any tips would be GREATLY appreciated,

    Many thanks

    (I’m in the UK)

      I am still using this on my eyes! The last one I bought was just a couple of months ago at Superdrug. Do you think it has been discontinued since then? Sometimes they change the packaging a bit but it is essentially the same product.

  2. I realize this is older, but, can one find this product? I am recovering from a serious illness and need all the help I can. This article caught my eye and something I would love to try!
    I am 61 and because of the illness I have lost some hair, nails have Beau lines and my skin is a wreck! I seem to have lots of whiteheads and pimples: ugh…
    Any suggestions on how I can get back into looking better would be so welcomed!
    Thank you for this article~~I love to hear ladies’ holy grails.

    • Jan Small says:

      Hi Jean, I recommend you first of all book a series of pampering, relaxing spa facials as a professional will be able to help with whitehead extraction and pimples, and then continue with gentle moisurizing but non-comogenic treatments. All the best for your recovery – you deserve some pampering after what you have been through.

    Hi Jan,
    I can’t seem to find this eye cream anywhere any more. I am a beauty therapist and have found this eye cream to be better than any of the professional range creams at triple the price, thus I am desperate to find some. Have you had any luck locating a seller?

    • Jan Small says:

      Hi Claire, I just had a look online and can’t seem to find it either. Perhaps they don’t make it any more. I am still using this myself. I have one tube left. I wish I’d known it was not available any more as I have just been to France and may have been able to locate it there. Failing that it may be worth writing to L’Oreal and asking about stockists. If they don’t make it any more at all, they should be able to tell you the closest equivalent cream.
