Review: L’Oreal Youth Code Eye Cream

I got this in Target’s clearance section with coupons that made it cost about 50 cents.  Hard to resist a deal like that…

Pros:  Works as well as most eye creams.  Blends easily.

Cons:  Contains parabens.  The applicator is a little unusual.

In Summary:  I really don’t like the metal applicator.  I’m not sure why it has to be metal (it just seems odd) and it really seems like they were using a model of a lip balm applicator.  That would be fine, except my under-eye area isn’t the same shape and my lips.  Consequently, the applicator is a little unwieldy.

Note:  There are 2 “Youth Code” eye creams out there.  One is the .33 fl. oz one that I have.  (I honestly think it came out of a multi-package product to be sold separately, because its bar code was on a sticker.) The other is a .5 fl oz that’s labeled “Eye Cream Daily Treatment” or “Rejuvenating Anti-Wrinkle Cream”.  They look exactly the same, so I don’t know what the difference is, except that the .5 fl. oz. one seems to be much more expensive.  (Listed at $24.95 MSRP on the L’Oreal website)

Rating:  3 out of 5 stars  

Price:  $4.99 – $24.99???

Available at:, Ulta, various other retailers

  1. A good review indeed. Make sure that you conduct first a spot test. This can be done on your face’s small area, or back of the wrist, to ensure that you are not allergic or you might get irritated by the eye cream that you have chosen.
