Review: Eve Lom Intense Firming Serum and TLC Radiance Cream

I recently went to an Eve Lom event, where I was taken through some of the hero products from the range.  I'll admit to knowing virtually nothing about the brand other than that their cult cleanser was the first balm cleanser on the market - and given how many are now available, that speaks of a pretty innovative approach.

Anyway, cleanser aside, I was given a few products to try, including the Intense Firming Serum and TLC Radiance Cream.  The Intense Firming Serum is designed to (surprisingly) firm the skin, and claims to visibly improve the surface of the skin.  TLC Radiance Cream is a lightweight moisturiser which promises to leave skin looking lifted, more radiant, and youthful.

The Intense Firming Serum has a very interesting texture - it's a gel, rather than a fluid, and it reminds me a little of a more liquid version of Illamasqua's Hydra Veil.  It sinks into the skin incredibly quickly, and it leaves the skin feeling surprisingly bare.

The TLC Radiance Cream is also a pretty light affair, with a light fluid consistency and a silky texture.  It also absorbs into the skin quickly, leaving it feeling hydrated and super soft.  This isn't a product for those who like their skincare unscented - it has a fairly strong rose scent which doesn't hang around after application, but is very noticeable whilst you're applying it.

Results wise, my skin hasn't seen any dramatic changes since I started using these two products, although it is looking and feeling healthy, hydrated and smooth.  For me, then, these products are great for healthy skin maintenance, rather than any staggering results.  And there's the rub - the serum costs £75 and the moisturiser costs £45.  I'd probably consider paying around £20 - £30 for a product which doesn't pack a massive results punch, and I really think these two are overpriced.
