I really like this! surprised to see such bad reviews. Even when I use this during the day, I don't find that it is sticky at all. You just use a tiny dab. Like seriously a tiny dab. Makes makeup around the eyes go on smooth and prevent creases under the eyes. Feels really nice too. It also cleared up some eczema I had under one eye.
I love MB products. They've done wonders for my rosacea and they're dirt cheap! However, I've yet to find a good eye cream from them.
Some context: dry/mature skin with crinkles around my eyes. puffiness. bags, dark skin. Yeah - the works.
This doesn't do anything for the wrinkles. I wouldn't necessarily expect a gel to be moisturizing enough for that. The real disappointment is that it does nothing for my puffiness or dark circles. Another lippie off for being tacky and making it hard to apply my concealer.
All in all, probably my least favorite eye cream ever.
One of MB's most questionable products. A very simple eye cream at best, its very moisturizing, but there are so many others options out there for what it provides. Even a little bit never really absorbs right. I'm using the rest of this jar to moisturize my cuticles !
I LOVE this product. It relieved my dark circles completely, as well as softening my sensitive eye skin. However, with the first application I did experience some stinging of the eye...I'm assuming its because I do have sensitive eye balls. :) Also, the packaging is not my favorite. Its hard to screw the lid onto the container. However, that does not change my opinon of the actual product. I love it!
I got a sample jar of this as an extra in a swap. I found out very quickly that it doesn't take much of this gel to do it's job. It won't sink in if you use the amount you would use of a normal cream. It's extremely concentrated. The amount I use is equal to about the size of the head of a pin and it covers the under-eye area and around the outer corner of my eye. This tiny amount allows the gel to sink into my skin. It's hydrating and smooths out the eye area quite well. My skin is supple and concealer goes well over it. I think if you all tried it with a 'less is more' approach, you might like it. You can always add more, a little bit at a time of course.
so i thought the bad reviews here were people failing to understand the nature of the product. a gel is different from a cream bc gels don't absorb into the skin like creams do hence providing long term benefits. gels sit on top of skin to either soothe and depuff (like cucumbers) or dry onto skin to tighten area around eye (like egg white). with that said, it really doesn't absorb into the skin. it reminded me of aloe vera gel (the kind you get for sunburn), color, texture everything. even if you use a thin layer, it doesn't absorb and it doesn't dry. and no, it didn't give me the soothing depuffing qualities of cucumbers/tea bags either. it really didn't do anything. save your money, theres other eye gels out there like origins no puffery that deliver better
Not Good, MB products are AMAZING but remember guys, A BRAND CAN'T BE GOOD AT EVERYTHING, some brands make AMAZING masks, toners and cleansers but suck at other treatments, this is the case, I must this is one of the few products I HATE from MB =S
I recieved a generous sample of this eye gel from MB and have been using it for a few weeks (it lasts so long!). As others have stated, it does not sink into the skin immediately, which can be a problem with makeup. I use the gel only at night and love how my eye area feels moist (not sticky or greasy) in the morning. Other than adding moisture, I don't see any other benefits in regards to circles or lines. If eye dryness is your only concern, this would be a good product.
even though lots of people dont like it~ i still think it works pretty good for me~ it reduces the fine line around my eyes (not wrinkles...) i also followed the instruction and stored it in the fridge; the results were great~ lighten up the dark circle and depuff~ ^ ^
the size is pretty good~ but i'm not so sure about continue buying it cus i really like to try new stuff~(i also never finished my skin care product...kept buying new ones...)
I hate this eye gel!! It is truly the worst, i dont know where to begin. It is so sticky. I keep expecting this to be absorbed but Alas! It just remains on top like a sticky film. I wake up in the morning and it would still be sticky. It does not smooth lines and wrinkles, as a matter of fact the gel settles in the wrinkle. I hope im making sense. There are other eye treatments much better than this like olay and clinique. I like other products of mario badescu but not this. Complete waste of money.
