How moisturizing is it?

Highly moisturizing: Lancome Renergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting and Firming Eye Cream has a moisturizing rating of 7.8 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? Rather occlusive. It has a high humectancy of 7.2 out of 10, primarily due to the substantial concentration of Glycerin (est. ≈6.0%), and a very high occlusivity of 8.3 out of 10, mainly due to the significant content of Dimethicone (est. ≈9.0%) and Squalane (est. ≈2.5%).

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the moisturizing rating calculation.

Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, Lancome Renergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting and Firming Eye Cream has a zero anti-wrinkle rating.

It contains some ingredients marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles, specifically Adenosine, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9, and Caffeine. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of these ingredients provide insufficient evidence of efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, these ingredients do not generate the anti-wrinkle rating.

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the anti-wrinkle rating calculation.

Function
Origin
The most used ingredient in skincare. Its concentration defines the product texture: rich creams may have about 50% of water while a light jelly about 90%. Water doesn’t moisturize the skin by itself and is used in skincare as a solvent for other ingredients.
Dimethicone
Est. %9
Function
Origin
The most common silicone in skincare. It forms a silky, smooth film on the skin’s surface and can help to prevent water loss. It also aids in wound healing and can treat and soften scars. Dimethicone is considered to be very safe for use.
