So, I went to The Body Shop a week or so ago and came across this eye gel. I dabbed my finger into the tester and really liked the cooling sensation on my hand and I noticed the $10 price tag. So, I was like why not? It's not super expensive. I put it on in the morning because I usually have a bit of puffiness and dark circles. I like how it cools and feels nice and tingly but it does nothing! It doesn't moisturize, reduce dark circles, reduce puffiness etc at all. It just sits there, sinks in and that's it. It doesn't even prime the skin around my eyes well. Okay, so it's cheap but I'd rather have got something else for $10 that's a hell of a lot more useful than this.
This gel works on sensitive skin like mine. Have been using it for 2 weks now and i've noticed a reduce in puffiness. Not moisturising enough for night time or under makeup use though, so i need to use a primer under my eyemakeup.
It literally does nothing, not hydrating, no firming, nothing at all. Though it is cheap among all the eye products out there, I still feel it is way too expensive because I spend my money for nothing. The only good thing about this product is that it does not cause skin seeds around my eyes no matter how much I use it, which I consider is because it contains no nutritions to my skin around eyes. I will never buy this product again.
I use this product only to releive the dryness after my night routine. 'cause I don't like using an intensive eye cream at night as it makes my eyes puffy in the morning. I sometimes use it for my lips too but it gets sticky when you use more than you need.
It's not suitable to use under make-up (for it's sticky). It's not expensive but don't bother if you need a real eye treatment.
It dose not do much to your eyes; not hydrating it, not decrease puffiness. There must be something that is better than this.
this is a product that does nothing good and nothing bad. If you just want something to moisture your under eye area, get this. It is very lightweight, and you won't get "bumps" from using it. Since i am getting old, I need something that is mroe powerful and anti-aging.
So i won't buy this again.
pro: lightweight, somewhat moisturing
con: doesn't really fight fine lines, and it is not anti-aging.
- I have very sensitive skin around the eyes and this eye gel is not irritative to me.
- Cheap. I sometimes use it as eye mask.
- Can't see any effect about dark circles or fine lines.
- Doesn't moisturize enough cuz the texture is too thin.
It really depends. Several friends of mine think it is effective in preventing dark circles when they stay up late. But I don't think I'll buy it again.
Can't believe I haven't reviewed this earlier. I can't explain why, but this seems to work wonders for the skin around my eyes. Everytime I run out of this and use something else for a few days, I notice the difference. The skin seems to be less hydrated because some temporary lines appear. They fade after continuing the use of this gel. There probably could be a better/cheaper option for this one, but it's really hard to find an eye gel that actually is a gel instead of a runny emulsion.
My eyes feel fresh after using this, but it takes a while for the effect to take place (few weeks for me) The packaging is alright but with a jar you need to be more careful of how you take out the product to avoid contamination. I make sure my hands are clean and I use one finger to gently take some. I find that it dries quite quickly on my skin and I can put make up over it soon after. If it wasn't for the discount I wouldn't have bought it, but it seems alright. I hope I can find a better/cheaper eye gel later on.
Well I bought this on a whim - can't really remember why, I think it had something to do with the shop assistant being extra sweet and nice, so I probably just didn't want to exit the store empty handed. It doesn't really do much of anything; won't help if you have dark circles (which I do have to the maximum), but that's no surprise because it doesn't claim to. All it seems capable of is soothing puffy or irritated eyes. I keep it in the fridge, as the shop assistant told me to do, and it feels cool, refreshing and pleasant when I'm tired or my eyes feel uncomfortable. I guess it can be helpful on mornings when you have a hangover or haven't slept much.
It feels watery and a bit sticky, and you have to wait a bit for it to dry, so not very convenient to use under makeup if you're in a rush. Also the first couple of times I used it I got a reaction - my eyes got red and teary. But that doesn't happen anymore.
All in all I don't really get the purpose of this product. Sure, it does kind of help make puffy eyes more comfortable, but you can get the same results - maybe even better - with natural remedies like teabags or cotton balls dipped in chamomille (which by the way I find quite effective). The price is ok, but I think next time I'll keep my money for something more useful.
