I dont know how it works when this gel only contain just cucumber extract and other basic ingredients but it DOES works. First of all, I have very puffy eyes (no thanks to my genes) and dark eye rings yet with no fine lines nor crows feets.
I wanted a reasonably priced eye gel but wasn't too sure on which one to get as there are so many eye gels in the market that one's spoilt for choice. Basically I took a risk and purchased Olay's eye gel. After 3 weeks of daily morning and night application I noticed my eye bags have noticeably firmed up and almost vanished! I couldnt get this effect with other eye gels which I have wasted money on and used in the past. However the gel did nothing for my dark eye rings though which I personally feel that it wasn't as bad as having puffy eyes cos the former could easily be covered up with make up. As for the fine lines, I cant say much about it either cos as mentioned earlier I do not have any fine lines around my eyes.
Likewise, I do realise that the eye gel do stings my eyes alot and makes em teary only when I've put on too much. The trick is to dab a little of the gel and lightly apply on my eyelids. And yeah, I have to agree too that this takes too long to sink in and luckily for me I do not wear make up at all so I need not have to wait. However when I leave my home for school I'll have to contend with 2 patches of wet and sticky looking 'shine' on my eyes until the gel sits in which makes em totally invisible.
Overall I still would re-purchase this again as it works alot more efficiently with noticeable results on me.
This didn't seem to do anything but make my eyes puffy. It didn't sting or anything, but I noticed they were watering alot. The little pot of runny gel is hard to manage and I end up with a big gob on my finger that was then hard to control under my eyes. Won't be buying this again.
This product did nothing for my 27 year old eyes. I thought the great reviews this gel received here would save me money and give me great results. But I think I will stick to my Juvena Vital Eye. It's price but it works. This gel did nothing but cool my eyes. I was hoping for some results with my fine lines, but to no avail. Be forewarned of this one folks. :(
Okay, I know that this is like an "anti-aging" product, but I'm not really worried about that right now. The reason I bought this product was that I wanted to try something that would hydrate my eyes better than my nighttime moisturizer for the rest of my face. I don't have a big problem with dryness anymore, but I think that there are better eye gels/treatments out there.
I have extremely puffy eyes with lots of redness (thanks to my dad's genes) around them. I have been using this eye gel for about two weeks now and notice nothing. I might as well just be patting water around my eyes.
I bought this when I was on my honeymoon in florida. I love it because its not to heavy to wear on humid days, and its makes my eyes feel so good!!! I keep mine in the fridge and that makes the cooling effect more intensse. great product for a drugsore brand.
This is grea, absorbs quickly and does not leave a sticky film on ur skin. One of my best eye treatments. However, this does not last long..like 2 months. I like this coz this has no perfume in it, and my undereye skin felt very comfortable using this.
I like this product, but I am still wanting to try other lines. I've read about the Neutrogena counterpart in Allure, so I may just try that one next. Anyway, I gave this gel 4 lippies because overall it's ok. I woulda given it 3.5 lippes if that was possible. I'm still undecided on whether it's THAT effective in reducing lines, puffiness, and dark circles. It has a very cool effect when u put it on. I do like the gel-like texture. But like the other MUAers have already stated, it takes a heck of alot of time to absorb into the skin and hence yu have to give yourself a lot of time between applying this gel and applying your makeup. One time, I didn't wait and I ended up with dark, streaky eyeshadow.
This product is effective; however, it leaves a sticky film under my eye after application. I have used other products that are equally as effective without the sticky residue.
