Belle Epoque Cream Review: Is it Really the Secret to Youthful Skin?
Belle Epoque Cream is an anti-aging eye cream which aims to help “activate youth” in your skin to allow you to present a healthier appearance. The eyes, in particular, can become vulnerable to wrinkling and sun damage due to the skin there is thin. This product is sold in jars of 0.5 ounces each, and is available in a “trial and autoship” form, with $5 getting you a jar of it to try out for fourteen days. After this, you will be billed $99 per month and shipped a new jar every thirty days until you cancel.
Full list of ingredients for Belle Epoque Cream on the manufacturer’s website is not specified. Most of what we did find referred to peptides and collagen molecules being included in the formula, although without any information on what kind of peptides, or how much collagen, it’s difficult to say how seriously this should be taken.
We could not find official information on how to use this product, but most similar products are applied once or twice daily as part of a standard skin care regimen.
- The product targets the skin under the eyes, which is more delicate than that of other parts of the face.
- A trial is available for those who might want to test the product.
- Autoship programs can be convenient, especially if it’s hard for you to get to a shop or remember to place orders.
- No side effects have been reported.
- The ingredients in this formula are not disclosed. While some proprietary secrets are understandable, this lack of information is a big problem for people with sensitivities or allergies.
- The per-month price for the autoship program is very expensive.
- No clinical information (other than one graph, lacking even numbers) is provided to back up the assertion that this product will be very effective or indeed effective at all.
Belle Epoque Cream provides a common offer comparing the product to the beauty secrets of the celebrity class and saying it’s a better alternative to dealing with unhealthy-seeming skin than Botox or other treatments. Without much information or clinical research to back this up, it’s hard to take it seriously, especially when it’s being sold with a somewhat misleading “trial offer” and such a hefty monthly price tag. You can find beauty products and anti-aging treatments at every price point, and cost doesn’t always mean quality.
Below you’ll find some of the most effective eye cream formulations on the market today, in our opinion.

Also Remember These Dermatologist Recommended Important Tips:
- Age has nothing to do with the lines that appear on the corners of your eyes... it's a combination of heredity and careless abuse of the area.
- Skin is skin... it all needs to be cared for in one way or another. For my younger readers, this means not pulling on the skin when removing eye makeup.
- The eye area is prone to fine lines and wrinkles, so it is really important not over-work the area, squint, and stay away from smokey rooms. Your eyes won't like that either.
- One of the best ways to protect this area of your face is to put on a pair of sunglasses every single time you go outside spring, summer, fall and winter.
- There are very few oil glands in the eye area, so it can dry out very quickly, especially if you spend a great deal of time out of doors.
- When you chose an eye cream, be sure to choose one that is especially formulated for this delicate skin. Don't use a day cream that could be full of ingredients that will irritate this area. Too rich a cream can cause as many problems as ignoring the area.
