Bought this mostly for hydration and it does an ok job,but what can you expect for 12.00 Canadian.Its colorless and fragrance free and doesnt irritate the skin around your eye.Leaves it a cooling sensation and does help depuff abit.
I've recommended this so many times, can't believe I haven't reviewed it! I used this for years, probably between the ages of 25-35, until I needed something a little sturdier. Absorbs well, makeup can be easily applied over it without the moisturizer causing your mascara to dissolve all over your face. No noticible fragrance, so none of that pesky irritation some eye creams cause. No milia, no breakouts. Runs between $13-15, and you can generally find it on sale at your drugstore. I view this eye gel as a preventative product, so don't expect retinol-quality repair! Truly a great drugstore product, especially for oily-skinned gals.
This is probably not a product for women in my age range, unfortunately. If you're 40's-50's, I recommend Clarins Advanced Extra-Firming Eye Serum.
This is a awesome eye gel!!! SO nice and refreshing when you apply it. I apply it all over my eyes and I rub it in. Sinks in fast and it lasts forever. My (fine) crows feet have started to disappear but my undereye fine lines are taking a little bit longer.But they are slowly SLOWLY disappearing. :D Yay!!!!!!
I will buy this again..if I ever run out of it!
It doesnt have a bad scent, rather light gel formula so thats it about the good sides. The bad - it did not do anything for me. Nothing. Zero. Nada. And it wasnt that cheap either. So logically I wont buy it again after Im finally done with it.
it's refreshing for the skin around the eye, but don't expect it to do anything else. it doesn't tighten it, lighten dark circles or do any 'improvements'. it's extremely expensive for what you get (i'm not talking about quantity, because it does last), so if you buy it, make sure there's a significant discount on it.
This is pretty good for keeping the under eye area moisturized. It is not too thick and it absorbs fairly quickly. If your skin is very dry this is probably not for you as for this is formulated for skins that are on the normal to oily side. Overall this is okay if you don't have very dry skin and are looking for something that will provide you with hydration. I apply it morning and night and it keeps my eyelids and under my eyes hydrated. Gets the job done so yes I would rebuy.
My eyes have badly reacted (irritation) to the many eye creams/moisturizers I have tried so I'm very picky when purchasing things for my eyes. I've been using this gel for about 5 months now (still using the same jar) and I must say it's not the holy grail of eye product but its good enough to keep me using it. It's very light and doesn't irritate and it decently moisturizes. My concealer looks good over it and my husband says that my circles aren't as dark as they used to be.
Now, I know circles are hereditary. There's nothing we can do, short of taking full on bleach to the skin, to take care of that completely but I'll take some added radiance! I will continue to use. The price is good and its very decent at doing what it does!
-Wonderful basic eye moisturizer
-I hate the jar packaging--so unhygienic!
-Doesn't address dark undereye circles
Overall, I do enjoy this product and will repurchase for the time being.
I tend to love Olay products but this one misses the mark for me. Even though it is a colorless gel I dont think it blends nicely around my eyes. Even after using a small dabble I think it still leaves a wet/slick appearance which is does not complement my oily complexion at all.
Depite not really caring for the look and feel I decided to use it for a few weeks to see if it would deliver. Sadly it did not. In fact I suspect that I get more eye junk throughout the day with it than I do without. Also, I did not notice any significant improvement in my eye area that would warrant the use of this product. The rest of the bottle is still in the medicine cabinet where it will likely stay until I give it away.
I would not recommend this product.
I got this eye gel last of a olay holiday set, it came with a face cream, cleanser, face towel and this stuff. I was intrigued. I've only used one other eye cream in my life, one from nivea (which came as a bonus, it was in a blue contain, hydrafresh or something). I am 27 and have started to see fine lines around my eyes.
This product is sticky feeling, takes a long time to absorb on your skin, I don't really like it. As far as results, haven't seen any yet, I guess it hydrates but has to be used with a moisturizer around the eyes too or else it just feel kinda drying.
I would not rebuy this on it's own. I have two containers of this stuff and will probably finish them off unless I find they are really bad.
EDIT: After using it for some time, it is causing me to break out under my eyes, a place I never ever break out, so I know this stuff is doing it. :(
