Toouche Eclat - similar product

(38 Posts)

I have been using Touche Eclat but it has really irritated the skin underneath my eyes. I have sensitive skin & am looking for another product that is fragrance free & works in a similar way to Touche Eclat. Any recommendations?
Many thanks

I had to give up on Touche Eclat because it gave me scaly skin under my eyes! Although it's not quite the same, I now use a Helena Rubenstein concealer that I was recommended- I think that all of the ones like TE tend to be irritating because of their ingredients.

oh it does the same to me.
i have had clarins (ok)
and aldi(fabbola)

am now on boooby brown.

Yeah my skin underneath my eyes is now scaly following the TE & it looks like I have wrinkles galore. Ugh!
I want something to disguise the wrinkles & make me look human!

I like the clarins one. Or the Dior one is quite good too.

I use one by Bourjois (owned by Chanel, or vice versa, same company group anyway). Much cheaper than Touche Eclat and doesn't dry the skin under my eyes.

I like the Clinique one.

MadameCastafiore Wed 13-May-09 17:42:49

The Lancome one is good.

The guerlain one is meant to be good. I chickened out and got touch eclat but the nice sales lady on the Guerlain counter assured me it was good.

WillowMother Wed 13-May-09 22:49:38

Thanks all - any more recommendations? I had heard the Dior one is good - anyone else?

I had a similar reaction and have been using the Virgin View one for a while with no problems. I actually prefer it and it's quite a bit cheaper I think

All of you who have had this reaction to TE, has it returned to normal after you stopped using it? I have bought some TE (it was on offer and I am weak) but I don't use it often as I don't wear make-up often! I am now panicking and thinking I should get rid asap!

(Sorry for the hijak btw!)

i am allergic to te.

second vote for the body shop one from me... really good and pretty cheap.

hohoba Thu 14-May-09 07:37:48

yes it returns to normal but i still got it when i retried a year or so later

thesockmonsterofdoom Thu 14-May-09 07:38:58

I love the virgin vie one.

Not allergic to Touche Eclat, but when I tried it it didn't work for me (just sat there under my eyes and looked more obvious than the dark shadows it was hiding). After a visit to Space NK I bought Touche Veloute by By Terry, it's far better and smoother than TE. Really, really recommend it, it is by far the best concealer I have tried. It's about £25 iirc.

not TE related, but used No 7 Protect and Perfect Foundation and my friends asked me if I had been getting some sleep smile

I used the bodyshop one which was good for a while then it went a bit thick, didn't have it that long either!

I actually bought the Virgin Vie one a couple of months ago & haven't used it as it smells as though it has perfume in it. Has it? I never returned it so could use it if it is fragrance free. Thanks

ruddynorah Thu 14-May-09 14:04:44

the aldi one here.

WillowMother Thu 14-May-09 14:07:57

Sorry, this is what I actually bought.

Is this the one you are talking about? Is it fragrance free?

May pop to ALDI this afternoon as there is a store 15 min drive away. Is it fragrance free? (I have sensitive skin). Ta
