Every now and then, I wake up with really tired, puffy eyes. Be it that I had Chinese food for dinner or just didn’t sleep well, I look a hot mess. I used to just tough it out or occasionally use a hot rag on my face to encourage drainage, but now I just reach for this eye gel. The formula is incredibly light and cooling – it feels lovely smoothing it on puffy eyes and sinks right in. I don’t have to wait ages for it to absorb before I can apply my eye makeup, but I do like to give it a few minutes to start working its magic.
And work its magic it does! While it doesn’t give what I’d call instant results (aside from the really pleasant cooling sensation), within a couple of hours, my eyes are no longer puffy, they feel more awake, and they look much brighter. I don’t know how it does it, but I’m truly glad it does!
Since it isn’t terribly moisturizing, I do recommend using an additional eye cream if you need moisture, but I personally can get away with just this on days I feel I need it. On days my eyes feel great already, I just use a regular moisturizing eye cream.
I’m so in love with this eye gel that I can completely disregard the fact it comes in a pot-style package (which is truly a pet peeve of mine – the fact that I can look past it really speaks to how much I love it!). It’s a fairly good size, and given that I only use it on days when I need some definite help in the eye area department, it should last me for quite some time.
This is truly a new Holy Grail product for me. It’s totally going into my permanent rotation, and I highly recommend you try it out!
