Lierac Eye Creams

My local TK Maxx was recently done up so I decided to have a mooch around for some bargains. I've always found some good beauty bits in there, from Ardell lashes to Stila Convertible Colours. The new skin & hair care sections were filled to brim with goodies from high-end brands. The first things that caught my eye were these Lierac eye creams. I'd never tried these before but having heard about Lierac from Caroline Hirons & Lisa Eldridge, I knew I should give these a go.

Diopticerne is a 2 in 1 product because it works as a regular hydrating eye cream as well as an intensive eye treatment for dark circles. I've been using this at night for the past two weeks and its already begun to reduce the severity of my dark circles. I don't know if it'll do much more than that but its worth a go. I have the un-tinted version but there is also a tinted version that has high coverage so it can be used as an under-eye concealer! Hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on that version soon.

Diopticalm is a soothing eye balm. This product can be used in two different ways: as a traditional eye care product or as an eye mask. You can use it as a part of your everyday skincare routine by gently massaging it into your eye area or if you want to use it as a mask you can apply a thick layer of the balm & leave it on for 5 minutes before wiping off the excess product. I really like this eye cream. Its incredibly refreshing and instantly makes my eyes feel a lot calmer & de-puffed. I use this one in the morning to help wake me up for the day. It definitely makes my under-eye area look better & like I've had my beauty sleep. I think this product is my favorite of the two. If you were to pay full price for these products, this one is more worth it as you get double the amount of product in the Diopticerne one.

The best thing about these purchases? They cost me just £5 each! Both of these have a RRP of £17.50 so they were a real bargain, especially since they are such great eye creams. Have you found any good deals in TK Maxx recently?


  1. Great finds! I'm forever hunting for some Stila prods but never have any luck. The most recent thing I bought has been a face wash by This Works but it's mostly old stock left over now xx

  2. I love all Lierac products so will def be trying this and reviewing. Thanks for the reccomendation x

  3. Amazing finds! I really miss living close to a TKMAXX! xo

  4. I bought the Diopticcerne one when in Paris but have found that it makes the areas I put it on red! I have been using it in the morning though so not sure whether my skin is being super sensitive. Will give it a go using it at night instead =) xx
