Beauty | No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream

I'm not a fan of the dark, uneven skin under my eyes. Nor the fine lines that are beginning to accompany them. So I use an eye cream daily.

I've just come to the end of the No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream.
I picked this up as part of an offer in Boots during the summer. I wasn't aware at the time that this eye cream is aimed at ages 45-60. Ooops. But that's not a problem. It promises to reduce the appearance of crow's feet, visibly lift and even skin tone and that's exactly what I'm after...

No7 say...
'No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream is a multitasking cream powered by our clinically proven No7 Lift & Luminate serum's technology, effectively targets the 3 key signs of ageing in older skin. 1. Line and Wrinkles 2. Lack of Firmness & 3. Uneven Pigmentation. This luxurious cream with a blend of anti-ageing and lightening ingredients, works to visibly reduce the appearance of crows feet, even skin tone, lift and firm for younger looking eyes in just 4 weeks. Now with the unique triple protective power of SPF15, 5* UVA and antioxidant technologies to give advanced protection from the ageing effects of the sun and the environment. Hypo-allergenic: Because all skin can have sensitive moments all our products are hypo-allergenic so they are kind to even the most sensitive skin.'

I used this every morning after cleansing, by squeezing a little from the tube onto my fingers and smoothing and dabbing gently around my eye area with my ring finger, making sure I don't pull or drag the delicate skin around my eye. The consistency is a light cream which is nice to apply and sinks in well, it isn't at all greasy and absorbs quickly, leaving a nice primed-feel base ready for makeup application. I find that when I first use my eye cream, along with my whole skincare range, I do notice a difference in the appearance of the skin around my eyes. My eyes look brighter, more hydrated and the appearance of my fine lines are less noticeable, and with make up are almost invisible. Unfortunately the results aren't long lived and halfway through the day I notice the fine lines making an appearance, and it hasn't really changed my uneven skin tone at all, unfortunately. I've been using the cream every day since the summer, so it has lasted me well, for a 15ml tube. I do like this cream, it feels lovely and I have noticed a difference, albeit a short lived one. It works well on my sensitive skin, doesn't leave any build up and feels good on the skin. However it hasn't worked wonders on my dark circles and uneven skin tone. I will say though, my eye area is much more hydrated and the skin feels a lot firmer.

Would I Recommend It?
I'd say give it a go, but don't expect miracles! :) It's a lovely, hypo-allergenic cream that did momentarily help the appearance of my fine lines, so for a quick fix, try this. It's a great consistency and has firmed my skin most definitely - so if that's what you're after, this is perfect. 

Would I Repurchase?
I think I'd try a No7 eye cream again, maybe one aimed at nearer my age bracket. I wouldn't rule out using this eye cream again, but I'm more likely to try something else to see if the results are any different. 

No7 Lift & Luminate is available from Boots stores or online at, at £16.00.

Have you used an amazing eye cream lately?



  1. At the moment I am using Clinique repair wear laser focus eye cream. I went for a makeover and I was given a sample. I have been using it and my dark circles have decreased dramatically! Recommend.
